We put up a poll a few days ago with four potential strikers for Newcastle, with an estimate of how much they would cost in the transfer market, and asked our readers to select who they thought would be the best deal for Newcastle.
Loic Remy for £9M – reader’s choice
And it seems most of our readers would prefer Loic Remy to be brought in from Marseilles, if we can get him for £9M, and Loic got 58% of the vote, and of course a good deal should be possible, since he’s in the last year of his contract, and Newcastle have trailed this player for over four years now.
Andy Carroll was third in the poll, assuming we could get him for £15M from Liverpool, and he got only 13% (unlucky for some) of the vote.
And the poll is not unrealistic, since this is the way the Newcastle hierarchy looks at transfers - which is the best deal for Newcastle.
Here’s the results of the poll, and there’s still time to vote if you haven’t yet voted.
