Newcastle fans react to bargain move for Reyes

Loads of Newcastle fans have been giving their verdict on the latest transfer news, as the Magpies are interested in signing Mexico international Diego Reyes.

According to Sky Sports, both Newcastle and West Ham are chasing Reyes on a free transfer after he opted not to renew his contract with Porto.

Every Newcastle fans knows Mike Ashley would be extremely happy to get all of his business done via loans and free transfers, so this could be one rumour that actually has legs.

The 25 year-old centre back has 53 caps for Mexico, so getting him on a free would be one hell of a coup for the Magpies.

Chancel Mbemba is expected to leave Tyneside this summer, and getting his replacement in for free could potentially free up the funds from his sale to invest in other areas.

While fans clearly think Reyes would be a shrewd buy, they’re certainly not convinced the money from the Mbemba sale would ever see the light of day, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
