A whole host of Newcastle United fans on Twitter were very happy to see the latest Dan Ashworth update.

The Magpies are now seemingly starting to crank up their pursuit of transfer targets, with both Kieran Trippier and Sven Botman looking to be two of the clubs’ main priorities, according to The Telegraph and the Daily Mail respectively.

Will Newcastle be relegated?





This is all being done under the watchful eyes of Amanda Staveley and Nick Hammond, who is helping the club on a temporary basis – and that seems like all it will be for the former Celtic man.

Journalist Duncan Castles has claimed on The Transfer Window podcast that Dan Ashworth has been offered £2 million to take the director of football role on Tyneside and he is ‘leaning towards’ accepting the Toon’s offer.

A lot of Newcastle United fans are very happy on Twitter to see this update.

What have these Newcastle fans been saying?

“This guy could be fantastic for us. Possibly as important as any on field signing we make this month/in the summer”


“This would be a great shout. Dan Ashworth is respected and could build an exciting project at NUFC.”


“This would be colossal, folks!!! Fingers crossed this comes off.”


“This will be a fantastic appointment if it comes off. “


“This would be a great addition to the board room. Vastly experienced in the role & in the football world, well respected with a great reputation. Will help the new owners both with direction, how to achieve the goals they have set & attract top level execs as well.”


“Brilliant appointment, if true.”


Judging by these Newcastle fans, Ashworth would seemingly be a very welcomed appointment on Tyneside and potentially the final piece of the jigsaw for the club and fans being able to embark on a new dawn.
