Newcastle fans are so delighted with the form of Paul Dummett that they are turning their noses up at Luke Shaw links.
Luke Shaw will probably be linked with every club in the world between now and the summer transfer window, after Jose Mourinho lashed out at the youngster again on Saturday.
Shaw has never really recovered from his leg break in 2015, but the Chronicle claims Rafa Benitez was interested in a move for the 22 year-old in January.
According to The Times, Everton and Spurs are leading the way to sign the England international, but Newcastle’s previous interest and Benitez’s knack for developing players could tilt the balance in Newcastle’s favour.
Newcastle fans haven’t had much to cheer about this season, but in the space of a few weeks their fortunes have turned. Wins against Manchester United and Southampton have put them in a great position to secure their safety with a win over Huddersfield Town later this month.
Fans have been particularly happy with the recent form of Paul Dummett, so much so they don’t seem all that fussed about the links to a 22 year-old England international.
