Would Kieran Trippier join Newcastle?
Indeed, as reported by the Mirror, Trippier is wanted by new Magpies boss Eddie Howe, who is hoping to ‘bolster his squad with leaders and big personalities’.
The story was shared on Twitter by NUFC360 and it soon caught the eye of many excited United supporters.
Here’s what these Newcastle fans had to say about the transfer links to Kieran Trippier…
Judging from these comments, the Newcastle support would welcome the signing of Trippier with open arms and high expectations.
After winning La Liga last season with Atletico, he would certainly arrive with the sort of quality needed to help the Magpies. Having spent most of his career in England, the 31-year-old also has the experience to come in and make an instant impact if the deal does go ahead in January.
