Newcastle United became the wealthiest club in world football on Thursday when a Saudi-backed consortium finally completed a deal to buy the club from Sports Direct magnate Mike Ashley.
Following the recent competition of the Saudi-backed consortium takeover the Tyneside outfit, attention has already turned to who the Toon Army could look to bolster their squad with in upcoming transfer windows, with Goldstein drawing up a list of potential targets.
Would Kalvin Phillips join Newcastle?
Speaking on talkSPORT (via The Yorkshire Evening Post), the host said: “I’ve written a list of players that I think they can go for, which included the highly rated England Inernational
“James Ward-Prowse is a player I think they could go for. I think Aubameyang – mercenary, but I’ve got no problem with that, by the way. Rudiger wants £400,000 a week – Chelsea aren’t going to pay that. Perfect.
What did these Leeds fans make of the transfer link?
“Kalvin Phillips to Newcastle. Don’t make me laugh”
“Give over Kalvin Phillips. I’m a Leeds fan I hope he never leaves but he prob will end up leaving but it’ll be for a Man City or a Real Madrid or Barca in 2 years maybe he ain’t going to Newcastle regardless of their money”
