Newcastle United: Fans flock to Bissouma transfer claim

A whole host of Newcastle United fans are buzzing on Twitter to be linked with a move for Yves Bissouma.

The Mali midfielder has been linked with a move to both Newcastle United and Aston Villa this transfer window but with his country having progressed in the African Cup of Nations a return to England is not imminent and thus, a move this month would appear unlikely.

Will Eddie Howe keep Newcastle up?





Bissouma may well be looking for pastures new this calendar year with just 18-months left on his contract and it’s no surprise why a lot of clubs are interested in him as he is capable of playing as a single holding midfielder and protecting his defence superbly with the midfielder ranking top in the league when it comes to the percentage of dribbles tackled (FBRef).

A lot of Newcastle United fans on Twitter are in love with this transfer claim.

What have these Newcastle fans been saying?

“This would be excellent.”


“1000x yes”


“This would be an unbelievable signing”


“Game changer if we get him. I can’t see how over the other clubs who want him though”


“This is the one!! Go get it!!!!!”


“Would be a massive signing”


With Newcastle’s newfound wealth Brighton may well look towards them for a sale and a way to recoup more than the £15 million they paid Lille back in 2018, but with his contract up next summer, that becomes more unlikely with every passing day.
