One thing that intrigues us with Stoke City’s Joselu is that he had a very good preseason scoring four goals and being one of Stoke’s best players.
But Rafa has somehow persuaded Stoke manager Mark Hughes to sell him to us for £5M – just under a million less than Stoke paid Hannover 96 for him just two years ago.
Joselu didn’t have a good time of it in his first season at the Potters and was on loan last season at Deportivo in Spain.
But Rafa can get the very best out of his fellow countryman and he could even score a good few goals for us this season.
He will become a good buy for Newcastle and maybe we should all get behind the 27-year-old and Rafa and the rest of the players this season.
Now would be a good time to do that.
Newcastle under Rafa Benitez could do a lot better than a lot of our fans are expecting.
Howay The Lads!!

Joselu/Lucas Perez both on Rafa’s original list, but with Perez set on Spain return, #nufc have moved for Joselu. Benitez rates him highly.
