Newcastle fans fume as Fulham smash transfer record

Newcastle fans were delighted with the loan signing of Kenedy, but they’re getting slightly annoyed by all the money being spent by teams around them.

Magpies supporters finally got some good news when the signing of Kenedy was announced on Thursday morning, but the arrival of Jean Seri at Fulham has fans bashing Mike Ashley again.

Wolves have of course earned promotion off the back of some big spending, and the Premier League newcomers have already added two seasoned internationals this summer in Rui Patricio and Raul Jimenez.

Fulham have now added their name to the list of teams outspending the Magpies, smashing their transfer record on Thursday by completing a £25m move for Seri.

The Cottagers are also the front-runners to sign Aleksandar Mitrovic, which will only add insult to injury when the infamous Ashley inevitably decides not to reinvest the funds from the sale.

Newcastle have yet to break the transfer record they set on Michael Owen over a decade ago, and the spending from other teams is really starting to annoy fans.
