Newcastle fans react as Emil Krafth reportedly set to become fourth signing

Newcastle are reportedly set to secure a deal for Sweden international Emil Krafth, and fans are excited about the signing.

The Magpies hadn’t had a lot to shout about this summer, but the last few weeks have seen three new faces arrive on Tyneside.

The club smashed their transfer record on Joelinton to kick things off, and last week brought a double swoop for Jetro Willems and Allan Saint-Maximin.

Now, French outlet Courrier Picard claim Krafth is on his way to St. James’ Park as the fourth new signing this summer.

The report claims Amiens withdrew the 25 year-old from their squad this weekend for fear of an injury that could scupper the transfer.

Krafth has five goals and ten assists in 147 career appearances as a right-back, and has racked up 20 caps for Sweden, per Transfermarkt.

After both Javier Manquillo and DeAndre Yedlin struggled to cement themselves in the role last term, Steve Bruce will be hoping Krafth makes an immediate impression.

And fans are hopeful he will be an upgrade on the aforementioned pair, as you can see from the Twitter reactions down below…
