It is claimed that the Toon are interested in taking the 24-year-old on loan in January as he looks to reignite his career after only playing for 74 minutes in the league this season.
This has drawn these Toon fans’ attention who cannot see Alli coming to play for Newcastle.
What did these Newcastle fans think of this transfer rumour on Dele Alli?

Do you think Alli would come to Newcastle?
No, not a chance
Yes, he might see it as an opportunity
Interestingly, most of these Newcastle fans were up for the idea of him joining.
Saw that one coming months ago

Alli will apparently be allowed to leave Tottenham Hotspur on loan in January; however, with the likes of Everton, who are fourth, and French giants PSG interested, you would think that Newcastle might face a struggle convincing him to join them over those two clubs.
Alli has made 160 appearances for Spurs in the Premier League in which he has scored 50 goals and provided 36 assists, so he has the pedigree and would undoubtedly improve the Toon.
However, with the likes of PSG and Everton sniffing around, it could be unlikely that Newcastle will get the chance to sign him, but we will have to see what happens when the January transfer window opens.
