Newcastle have been linked with a move for Southampton star Ryan Bertrand, and while some fans have expressed their concerns, most are in agreement he would be a great addition.
It’s been an incredible month or so for Newcastle fans.
Rafael Benitez seems to be happy with life at the club, they’ve won three on the bounce to secure Premier League survival, and now they’re getting linked with £25million transfer targets.
Ryan Bertand is apparently frustrated with life at Southampton, and will look to quit the club whether they escape relegation or not.
Everton, Tottenham and Manchester United are all interested in a £25m move for the England international, promoting concerns from some Newcastle fans that owner Mike Ashley will never pay what it takes to make the deal happen.
Other fans have brought up the brilliant form of Paul Dummett as reason enough not to pursue Bertrand, but most agree he would be an upgrade on Dummett.
The majority of fans would love to see Bertrand on Tyneside, and a few have even suggested some other Southampton stars that could be on sale if they go down.
This summer could be huge for the future of Newcastle United, and some of the best Twitter reactions to the links to Bertrand can be found below…
Only way signings like this will happen is if the FAT MAN sells up.

He’s better than Dummett who gave away another penalty which thank god wasn’t given the other day. But how can we be linked to anyone with Mike Ashley still in ownership? He’s not going to spend that sort of money we have to hope for a take over
