Newcastle fans confident of keeping Lascelles

According to The Mirror, West Ham United are interested in signing Newcastle United captain Jamaal Lascelles in this summer’s transfer window.

Indeed, the Hammers are expected to have as much as Β£75m to spend this summer following the arrival of Manuel Pellegrini as their new head coach.

The Newcastle fans recently claimed that Lascelles was worth Β£75m when suggestions of interest from Liverpool emerged.

Now West Ham are being linked with the centre-back, but the Newcastle supporters have no concerns that he could leave for the London Stadium in this summer’s transfer window.

Indeed, it would not be a surprise to see Lascelles depart for a club in the Champions League, but the club’s fans are finding it hard to believe that the 24-year-old would swap Newcastle for top-10 rivals West Ham at this stage of his career.

It is certainly an interesting one to watch over the next few weeks.
