These Toon fans clearly don’t want the club to move for Cork.
As things stand, Newcastle already have two out-and-out options in Cork’s main position of defensive midfield and they have three first-team options in central midfield (as per Transfermarkt).
So they clearly have enough depth in centre-midfield and because of that, the Magpies may not need to sign Cork in the summer.
