A whole host of Newcastle United fans are buzzing on Twitter to see their club being linked with a move for Kieran Trippier.

The Magpies could well be set to fully embark on a new era, as reports have claimed that Eddie Howe has now agreed a deal in principle to become their new manager to replace Steve Bruce, who was sacked over two weeks ago.

Can Newcastle attract a player like Hazard?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Despite some high-profile transfer blunders during his time at Bournemouth such as Jordon Ibe and Benik Afobe, Howe has managed to grab some bargains during his time as a manager including Danny Ings and Ryan Fraser.

Someone who he didn’t sign but worked with during his short stint at Burnley was Trippier, and now Guillem Balague has claimed on 5 Live Sport (via HITC) that Newcastle are really interested in signing the defender.

He said: “I hear from Atletico Madrid that Newcastle are really interested in getting Trippier and they have started negotiations with his people.”

A lot of fans are ecstatic on Twitter to see Trippier linked with their club.

What have these Newcastle fans had to say?

“He’d be a phenomenal signing but I don’t see us bringing in players of this calibre just yet while we’re under the serious threat of relegation…If we can survive then maybe in the summer but not yet”

“Fully behind this like”

@bigGraemeD

“Would be a cracking first signing. Above owt else, he can actually take a set piece.”

@MattCobb88

“This is the kind of stuff I love to see!!! Better than any fullbacks currently at the club”

@rob_nicka

“All over this like!”

@LeeDForster

“Yes yes yes”

@Jordanstone_15

“He’s very reliable too, I would be really happy with this”

@lewisdunn38

If Newcastle were able to bring Trippier to the club it would be a major coup as it was only a few months ago he was playing in the final of Euro 2020 with England and was being linked with a move for Manchester United, via Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo.
