Newcastle’s failures in the transfer market have once again been highlighted, as loads of fans are reacting to DeAndre Yedlin’s injury against Tottenham.
Yedlin had an absolute nightmare on Saturday, as the American full back struggled to cope with Dele Alli’s movement all game, and rounded his day off with a very worrying injury.
The 25 year-old, who spent a year on loan at Sunderland before joining the Magpies, has been improving slowly but surely under the guidance of Rafael Benitez, but this could be a huge setback.

Benitez is now down to bare bones just one game into the season, and fans are furious that they didn’t add more depth in the transfer market.
Mike Ashley did eventually pull the trigger on a couple of late signings in Salomon Rondon and Federico Fernandez, but there is no depth in the squad whatsoever, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Glad we have so many full backs….. oh wait a minute…

What the issue, it’s a good job we strengthened in all areas so the two quality RB we brought in can fight it out for a starting role 🙈🙈🙈

Well, at least the transfer window is shut so we won’t have to watch Rafa get shut out of a good FB replacement and then forced to sign some dime store stock boy who played in the youth leagues but can be signed on the cheap
