Newcastle fans are confident over Lascelles future

By all accounts, Newcastle United captain Jamaal Lascelles is a wanted man this summer.

Indeed, if recent reports are to be believed, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Everton are all interested in signing the centre-back ahead of the 2018-19 campaign.

Lascelles was certainly impressive at St James’ Park last season, and he can count himself unfortunate to have missed out on a spot in the England squad for the 2018 World Cup.

According to the London Evening Standard, it might well cost interested clubs as much as £45m to land Lascelles in this summer’s transfer window.

Newcastle are desperate to keep hold of their captain this summer, but it is going to prove difficult to hold off the interest if the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham and Everton decide to start putting serious offers on the table.

That said, the Newcastle supporters are confident that Lascelles will still be with the club entering the 2017-18 campaign.

Indeed, the fans have been reacting to the latest developments on social media, and a selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
