Some Newcastle United fans have been reacting to a tweet that was recently posted by @ChronicleNUFC which shared a link to ChronicleLive’s Toon-focused live blog (2nd December, 14:27) in which journalist Lee Ryder’s recent comments on the North East club potentially making a move for Bournemouth attacker Josh King in January were relayed. 

As per ChronicleLive, Ryder explained that Newcastle “had a good look” at King in the summer transfer window on a recent edition of the Everything is Black and White podcast

The journalist then went on to state that he thinks “it would be a no brainer” for the North East club to bring him in when the transfer window re-opens in January if the £11.7m-rated man becomes “available for a knockdown fee” with his current Bournemouth deal set to expire in the summer

Starting with an easy one, what number does Wilson wear for Newcastle?

After Ryder’s comments on this potential deal were shared by @ChronicleNUFC on Twitter, their post caught plenty of Toon supporters’ attention. 

So, what did these Newcastle United fans have to say about Ryder’s comments on the possibility of their club moving for Josh King?

Many of the Newcastle fans that replied to this tweet indicated that they would be happy to see the 28-year-old Norwegian make the move to St. James’ Park. 

Some Toon supporters shared that they would like to see current Toon attacker Dwight Gayle move the other way as part of a potential deal to bring King to the North East club.

So, judging by these tweets, it certainly seems as though plenty of Newcastle United fans would like to see King at St. James’ Park.
