Newcastle Target Still Available For Transfer – Will Rafa Make A Move For Him?

Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez is looking for a new goalkeeper and we have been linked with a number of them this summer but one we still seem to be interested in who has a lot of Premier League experience is West Ham’s Spanish goalkeeper Adrian.

After Darren Randolph was allowed to leave the club last week for Middlesbrough a number of fans thought that Adrian would be kept as back-up to England goalkeeper Joe Hart who is on a season loan deal to the London club from Manchester City.

But Adrian has been told he can still leave according to a report in the Mail yesterday and it wouldn’t surprise us too much if Adrian is one of the goalkeepers Rafa is looking to sign for Newcastle.

30-year-old experienced Premier League goalkeeper Adrian

The 30-year-old should not be too expensive either although he still has two years left on his contract at the Hammers.

Other goalkeepers we have been interested in this summer include Pepe Reina, Kiko Casilla of Real Madrid and Geek International Orestis Karnezis.

We were interested in Darren Randolph but he will be going to Middlesbrough and we didn’t think he was any better than we already have at the club.

Most fans seem to prefer Real Madrid’s Kiko Casilla in the poll we are running.

But Rafa will have to move fairly quickly to get a new goalkeeper in since it looks as though he no longer rates 26-year-old Karl Darlow – even after the Englishman had such a good season for us as first team goalkeeper last term.

Rafa has also said he would like to bring players to Newcastle who have Premier League experience and Adrian has played 106 times in the Premier League for four seasons at West Ham.

What do you think?

    Is he really any better than Elliot? Not imo he isn’t. Bang average. If we must get another keeper he has to be a big upgrade on what we have and that certainly isn’t this guy. I’m not even convinced Rafa has him on his list, all we’ve heard is paper talk after all.
    Just can’t see this one happening and I hope it doesn’t.

    Stoke started poorly last season
    Leicester, Palace and West Ham flirted with relegation.
    Watford finished the season poorly.
    Southampton sell players every year and do well but one season it might not work.
    a team might unexpectedly have a bad season.
    a club might have an unexpectedly good season and finish in the top 7 like Leicester.
    who expected us to finish 5th last time we were promoted.
    we might be relegated this time of even finish bottom or we might surprise.
    Huddersfield might surprise everyone and do a Burnley.
    there may be one or two surprises.

    Never really noticed Adrian bossing his back4 which was on of the main reasons for getting Reina in.

    Sorry for being English and supporting an English team, I really must do better. 🙂 So, if you ain’t British – of which I’m proud to be – wtf are you bothering with us for?
    You’ve picked the wrong team pal. We’ve won nowt in 50 years, yet still pack the place out. It’s called PRIDE in your city and surrounding area. It’s not all about winning, but you simply don’t get it. Crikey, wherever you’re from, you’re an embarrassment to your country. Actually, don’t even bother telling us, I doubt anybody cares.
    Thank you though. I’m so glad you ain’t one of us.
    That’s why so many on here thought you were a mackem. It explains a lot actually.
    Then again, if you don’t like the British that much, you know where the door is. That’s more than once you’ve made anti British comments now I come to think of it. Why come here if you don’t like us? Nobody’s asking you to stay you know. We don’t do racism on here and you’re a racist.
