Lots of Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter after it was revealed former Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo has edged closer to becoming Newcastle United’s new director of football.

According to Football Insider, Newcastle are finalising contract details with Emenalo as they close in on appointing him their director of football, following a breakthrough in talks.

The Magpies hope to follow up the appointment of Eddie Howe as manager by finalising a hugely ambitious move for Emenalo, who last week travelled to Saudi Arabia to speak to Newcastle’s new owners and has now firmly established himself their first choice for the director of football position.

After hearing about this, many Newcastle fans have subsequently taken to Twitter to express their opinions after the news was relayed by fanpage NUFC360.

What have these Toon fans made of latest update on Emenalo becoming Newcastle United’s new director of football?



“I hope so, it would be fantastic appointment. But I thought there were things that weren’t financially related, that held the deal up. Hopefully they’ve been sorted out and he can be appointed and announced”
“MASSIVE appointment”
“Great appointment”
“Really hope this is true, I’ll believe it when it’s announced on”
“Amazing appointment if true but the source is poor”
“Time will tell…”

Toon fans will be hoping Emenalo can become an integral figure in a new era at St. James Park as they seek to become a real powerhouse within English football once again.

The Magpies and Howe will be seeking to claim their first victory of the campaign when they take on Thomas Frank’s Brentford side on Saturday in the Premier League as they seek to kickstart their campaign and surge up the league table.
