Newcastle have been linked with a move for relegated West Brom defender Craig Dawson, but fans are completely against signing the 28 year-old.
Newcastle fans would be pretty happy if you told them six months ago they’d be sitting well clear of the relegation scrap at this point, discussing which players they want to take, but it seems they’re not too happy about the latest links.
According to the Daily Mail, the Magpies are interested in a £15m summer swoop for West Brom’s Craig Dawson, although they do face competition from Celtic.
Dawson’s teammate Jonny Evans is likely to spark a transfer scrap over his bargain £3m relegation clause, but the report suggests he won’t be the only one on the move as the race for Dawson heats up
Newcastle fans are of course happy with their current centre back pairing of Jamaal Lascelles and Florian Lejeune, both of whom have gone from strength to strength as the season hit crunch time.
However, Dawson can play either right back or centre back, which makes the 28 year-old an interesting proposition for clubs looking to buff up their defensive ranks.
The Toon Army certainly aren’t interested though, calling for their club to show some more ambition this summer.

I don't think he's better than what we have. Rondon, Rodriguez, Gibbs & Burke I rate
