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

Speaking to Football Insider, McLeish claimed that “Newcastle fans actually would love Danny Rose to go back” and that signing him would be “incredible”.

This post drew the attention of these Toon fans who had their say.
