With Newcastle reported to be interested in at least four holding players over the last week alone, we put out a poll yesterday asking the Newcastle fans which midfielder they would prefer – given the reported fees put on their heads.
And Manchester City’s Fernando has come out well on top and if we can really get this lad in for just £5M – City wanted £10M for him a few weeks ago – it would be one terrific buy for Newcastle.
Fernando is a classy player with great technique who has experience at the highest levels after playing for six years at Porto where he played 228 goals with 5 goals before joining Manchester City for £12M three years ago.

Rafa wants to bring in one holding midfielder who can challenge the young and talented Isaac Hayden for the starting position next season in the Premier League.
If Fernando comes in we just need some new words to one of Abba’s many great songs of the 1970s.
Abba’s one of our favorite groups.
