Newcastle fans bash club over failed Berisha move

Newcastle fans are bashing yet another failure in the transfer market, as the heavily linked Valon Berisha is set to join Lazio.

According to Di Marzio, Berisha will join Serie A side Lazio after the Italian giants agreed a €8m (£7m) fee with Red Bull Sazburg.

The 25 year-old playmaker has been heavily linked with a move to Tyneside, and even told an Austrian news channel that the Magpies have been chasing him for quite a while.

Rafael Benitez needs some serious additions at the top end of his team this summer, and Berisha has been reported as his playmaker target.

Benitez wants to add more goals to his side, and signing a winger, striker and number ten would certainly go a long way to achieving that goal.

It doesn’t look like that number ten will be Berisha though, with the crafty playmaker, who grabbed 12 goals last season, all set to move to Italy.

Fans have often been frustrated by Mike Ashley’s transfer activity, or lack thereof, and the overriding feeling about the move for Berisha is disappointment but not surprise.
