Newcastle fans desperate for Loftus-Cheek swoop

Newcastle fans would absolutely love to sign Ruben Loftus-Cheek this summer, after England’s rising star questioned Chelsea’s faith in him.

Newcastle fans are starting to get frustrated with the lack of transfer activity, and it’s starting to feel like Mike Ashley’s frugalness could once again cost the Magpies dearly this summer.

One signing he probably wouldn’t have to get his chequebook out for however is Loftus-Cheek, who is likely to leave Chelsea on loan this summer.

The England midfielder has been linked with plenty of teams already, and his latest comments have got Newcastle fans itching for a summer swoop.

“It’s been so difficult to go from playing every game then get to the seniors and not be given a chance,” the 22 year-old said.

“From a year ago, I’ve improved so much from playing (at Crystal Palace). A game situation is so, so, different.

“It’s hard to compare the faith of Gareth Southgate and Roy Hodgson, and lack of Antonio Conte faith, because Chelsea is a big club and managers are under pressure and maybe don’t want to take a chance on a young player.

“I don’t understand what’s going on behind the scenes fully.”

The 22 year-old has all the physical tools to be a huge success in the Premier League, but it seems he’s not convinced he has a future at Chelsea.

The 6 ft 3 midfielder, who averaged an incredible three dribbles per game last season, will probably not be allowed to leave on a permanent basis, but Newcastle fans are desperate for a loan deal.
