Newcastle United fans on Twitter have been responding to the latest piece of transfer to emerge concerning the Tyneside club. 

This comes after Toon journalist Lee Ryder shared a post on his official Twitter page saying that club sources have confirmed that Newcastle have “held talks” with Liverpool’s teenage centre-back Remi Savage over a potential move to St. James’ Park.

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

This post then gathered a lot of replies from Toon supporters who were not shy in sharing their thoughts on this latest news.

So, what did these Newcastle fans have to say in response to this latest transfer news from Ryder?

“Absolute pointless signing, how about players who can improve us now”

@DennyBaldwin

“Liverpool giving us a youngster must be a flop”

@Jack_Rogers97

“The problem I have with that is NUFC have a very poor record of developing young talent.”

@PeterJameson56

“Another young career coming to die in NUFC’s terrible development system”

@mag_1892

“Can’t wait for him to be released in two years’ time.”

@The_21st_Doctor

“Typical Ashley signing. Buy potential sell on for profit “

Looking at the replies to this post, it seems that these Newcastle fans aren’t particularly excited by the idea of Savage moving to their club.

Are you excited by this potential transfer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

With Ryder’s article for The Chronicle on the matter saying that Savage is expected to join Newcastle’s U23s, it’s easy to see why these fans aren’t exactly raising the roof over this news, with them presumably rather wanting to see some first-team additions brought into the club instead.

In our view, if Savage does make the move to Newcastle this summer and manages to earn a place in ’s senior squad at some point in the future, then this could potentially end up being a smart move from the club in the long term if the 19-year-old has the quality to do so.
