There are reports in the Italian press today that long-term target Douglas, whose contract at FC Twente ends on June 30th, may have agreed a deal to join Newcastle United.
Douglas – would he be a good signing for Newcastle?
And certainly the 6’4″ Brazilian would mount a strong challenge to be a starter for Newcastle at center-back should he sign, although the reports in the italian press may be premature.
But if the 6’4″ defender does sign, that would give much-needed competition in the Newcastle defense, and also pose a threat at set plays, which we haven’t done for a long, long time.
And Newcastle conceded an alarming 68 goals lasts season, the most we have ever conceded in the Premier League – so do you think our defense needs to be strengthened this summer?
We want to gauge how Newcastle fans view this potential signing of the big Brazilian – so please let us know by voting below – only one vote per reader.
