Newcastle fans react to Bertrand interest

According to The Express, Newcastle United have joined the race to sign Southampton defender Ryan Bertrand in this summer’s transfer window.

Bertrand is widely expected to leave Southampton at the end of the season, with a number of clubs – including Tottenham Hotspur – closely monitoring developments surrounding the England international.

It is thought that the Saints want £25m for the left-back, and according to The Express, Newcastle would indeed be interested at that price.

The club’s supporters have been reacting to the transfer speculation, and the response has not exactly been positive.

Bertrand has more than proved himself at Premier League level over the last few years, and Manchester City are believed to be admirers of the 28-year-old.

The Newcastle fans, however, are just not convinced.

Indeed, one supporter said that they would rather have Luke Shaw from Manchester United, while another insisted that current left-back Paul Dummett was a better option than Bertrand.
