This is the first day Newcastle can officially sign players in this summer’s transfer window, with the new financial year starting today – 1st July.
Deals have been possible for several weeks now, but they cannot be made official until today.
Hopefully we can sign Florian Lejeune before Monday so we suppose the next news on that is he’s on his way to Newcastle for a medical – but that has not been reported yet.
Newcastle fans have complete faith in Rafa Benitez
Here’s some of the things on Newcastle fans’ minds today and we’ve put in some comical ones as well – always good for a light-hearted laugh every morning.
#Nufc fans – it may be 1st July but please don’t have a melt down if we don’t sign anyone today as it’s very rare it happens on a Saturday.

And of course you always get a good laugh from some Newcastle fans.

Not sure what’s annoying now: people freaking out about transfers, or people freaking out about people freaking out about transfers? #NUFC

#nufc fans – chill out. A) we cant spend £20m on 8 players . B) it’s July 1st. C) you’d think we were the only team who haven’t bought yet

Still bargains to be had. Gabriel Pires, Florian Lejeune & Pepe Reina all for around £14 million. Would be good business. #NUFC

I’ve said it so many times since the Jan window that we should be all over Ross Barkley, him, Shelvey & Ritchie would cause carnage #nufc

The strip looks great on Jack – but he needs some boots – sign him up!
