They claim that because Norwich City and Watford have won promotion from the Championship, their parachute payments of £83m will be shared between the Premier League clubs, giving the Toon an extra £4.8m.
The Chronicle claim that Newcastle could use this to fund transfer moves, but these Toon fans are not convinced.
“Phwoar, don’t spend it all at once lads.”
“Straight in Ashley’s back pocket”
“So offer 4.8 million for willock, and when that’s refused. Pocket the money and look for a loan move instead”
Do you think this will be added to the transfer budget?
No, we will never see that money
Yes, I think it will
However, these Newcastle fans remain unconvinced or unimpressed.
“The transfer budget now stands at a whopping £4.9m.”
“So that means instead of £0 , it will be £0″
