It claims that the Toon will look to take the Arsenal man on a season-long loan if they do not succeed with their proposed deal for Kristoffer Ajer.
This has drawn the attention of these Toon fans, who are fuming.
“Loan it is then, nothing new with Cashley fat pockets, only a takeover will breathe life back into our Club.”
“Sick of this transfer spec. We await takeover decision until then nothing will happen as simple as that .”
“Wallpapering over the cracks again I see Mr Ashley.”
Do you think that Saliba would be a good signing?
No, pointless loan signing
Yes, he would be a good addition
This post continued to draw in Newcastle fans who had their say.
“I’d be happy with that. He’s outstanding.”
“Keep both well away. Would be shocking business..”
“If my memory serves me correct the last two Arsenal players to come to the Toon we’re Willock and Hayden, so bring it on!”
It is clear that most Toon fans wouldn’t be happy with this deal because Saliba would just be a short-term fix.
However, it remains to be seen if the Toon can even bring the Frenchman in on loan.
