Newcastle United fans on Twitter have been responding to the latest news concerning goalkeeper Freddie Woodman.  

This comes after Newcastle-focused Twitter account @Magpie24_7 shared a post relaying news originally published in an article from The Chronicle.

Newcastle' all-time top goalscorer is Alan Shearer but how many goals did he score for the club?

The article claims that Celtic and Premier League side Southampton are interested in signing the shot-stopper this summer.

This post then gathered a lot of replies from Toon supporters, who were not shy in sharing their thoughts on this latest claim and whether or not they think the club should sell the goalkeeper.

So, what did these Newcastle fans have to say in response to this latest news about Woodman?

“I wouldn’t accept anything less than £20m”


“No, he’s a future England number 1, don’t make the same mistakes again” 


“Would only sell for enough money that would help us buy Willock.”


“Worth £20 mill at the least.”


“He needs Premier League experience, if he plays a full season in the Prem then his value will go up!”


“I don’t like it. Big mistake to sell him…” 


Looking at the replies to this post, it seems that these Newcastle fans don’t think the club should be selling Woodman – who has been on loan with Championship side Swansea City for the past two seasons – during the upcoming summer window unless they would be able to pick up a decent transfer fee for him.

What should Newcastle do with Woodman this summer?

Keep him in the squad for next season

Loan him out again

Sell him

Given the age of fellow Toon goalkeepers Martin Dubravka (32) and Karl Darlow (30), it would make sense, in our view, for Newcastle to keep hold of Woodman, gradually integrate him into the side to then have him as their first-choice goalkeeper in the future.
