Championship winners Newcastle United are lining up a move for former winger Andros Townsend this summer, according to The Chronicle.

The 25-year-old spent the second half of the 2015/16 campaign at St James’ Park as Steve McClaren’s side attempted to avoid relegation from the Premier League, a job they were unable do as they finished 18th in the division, two points adrift of safety.

Although England international Townsend did his bit to try and keep the North East giants in the Premier League, bagging four goals in just 13 league appearances for the Magpies, yet didn’t stick around to help Rafa Benitez’s men get out of the Championship, instead signing for top-flight outfit Crystal Palace.

Yet recent reports suggest that Newcastle are again interested in bringing Townsend back to St James’ Park, given they were linked with him in January as well, as Benitez looks to bolster his squad ahead of their top-flight campaign next term.

Some want him back, and responded to his tweet in response to Sam Allardyce’s departure at Crystal Palace last night in such fashion…

And clearly some believe it’ll be a good move for the Premier League-bound Magpies…
