‘Anything north of 25m take it’ – Newcastle United fans react to transfer reports



Rafa Benitez looks set to guide Newcastle United back to the Premier League, following this weekend’s results in the Sky Bet Championship.

Newcastle’s 2-1 victory over Wigan Athletic, combined with Burton Albion’s surprise triumph over Huddersfield Town, left Benitez’s side ten points clear of third-place and on course for automatic promotion, with just seven fixtures of the season remaining.

The Magpies’ promotion has seemingly been on the cards for a number of weeks now, and reports have been circulating on potential transfer targets for Benitez.

Gylfi Sigurdsson and Luke Shaw have been two Premier League stars linked with a move to St James’ Park should the club secure promotion.

Surprisingly, news has now broken of a potential departure from the North-East, with Ayoze Perez linked to French outfit Marseille by French outlet Espoirs du Foot.

Perez has had an inconsistent season at St James’ Park, scoring nine goals in 35 appearances across all competitions.

With news of Perez’s potential departure, here is how Newcastle fans reacted on Twitter…
