Newcastle fans react as club is linked with Joe Hart move

According to reports in The Mirror, Newcastle United are exploring the possibility of bringing goalkeeper Joe Hart to St James’ Park on loan during the January transfer window, and Magpies fans have been quick to have their say on the rumour.

The 30-year-old is currently on a season-long loan deal with West Ham United from Manchester City, but he has lost his place to Adrian in recent weeks following some disappointing performances.

The Mirror says that Rafa Benitez is keen to bring the England international in this month, but it will rely on West Ham, Man City and the stopper agreeing to end his loan at the London Stadium early.

Newcastle supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on the potential addition of Hart via social media, and while one said “relegation it is then”, another said “please say this is a joke”.
