There’s a report in the Chronicle today that Newcastle were working late into the night last night to try to get the deal done for Andros Townsend with news in the Mail yesterday that Rafa Benitez was getting a little tired of no action from the Newcastle hierarchy.
There’s news in national papers today that Newcastle now feel more confident about getting Townsend through the door.
It seems like Chancel Mbemba going the other way will not happen and that they are working on a straight transfer with an option to buy Andros Townsend in the summer.
Let’s hope Newcastle can get this deal done but the issue is still the £2M loan fee.
Andros Townsend could be reunited with Rafa Benitez today
