Newcastle fans took to Twitter this morning as the news that Tom Cleverley is having a medical today at Watford with a view to signing a loan deal through the end of the season with an option for the Herefordshire club to sign him on a permanent deal in the summer.
Tom Cleverley – he’s a decent midfielder but not great.
Bloody hell why are people getting their knickers in a twist over cleverley??? #nufc

So Cleverley has gone – not remotely fussed – Rafa’s got this. Man knows what he’s doing. #NUFC

Tom Cleverley is a glorified Danny Guthrie #NUFC

And please refrain from the “we could do better anyway”. On Colbacks form, Cleverley is a major improvement. 13 England caps. #NUFC

Loftus-Cheek not for loan, Cleverley having a medical at Watford, Cairney overpriced and Ince not for sale. Not looking good. #NUFC
