We are being linked with a return of Andros Townsend today and there are reports that we are still interested in speedy winger Adama Traore.
We are also supposed to be trying to get a deal done for Benfica playmaker Andreas Samaris but we are short of around £3M of the Portuguese club’s asking price – so we are not too far aways – we have offered around £14M and they want £17.4M.
Benfica playmaker Andreas Samaris – Newcastle trying to sign him
Fans are still (rightly) asking for a little bit of patience in this very difficult transfer market – but that’s always difficult at Newcastle.
Here are some interesting tweets this morning from Geordie fans.

Far too many fans having a melt down – players have jst came back – Rafa will be reviewing squad + teams will be asking over the odds #Nufc

Getting a bit fed up of waking up to ‘Rafa keen to add to squad’, every single morning…that’s a given, NOT a headline(!) ? ? #NUFC

Adama Traore has something that not many targets will have. End product can be coached, blistering pace & dribbling less so. Buy him. #NUFC

Surely the goal is still survival, and that will generate its own money for next summer. We need to remain realistic. #NUFC

The name Andros Townsend excites me more than any other linked name. Know what we get and Rafa gets best out of him. Do it. #nufc

Why should we not take townsend back people saying he moved to keep his international career going ok it failed but wouldn’t you #nufc

Understandable why townsend went to push int career. But he failed. Blackball him and move on. We need players that want #nufc move only..

And it looks like Karl Darlow could be in his way ….
I’m sorry to be selling this lad, great Marshall of his penalty area and imho the best goalie at #nufc but Rafa doesn’t seem to rate him
