Loads of Newcastle fans have been reacting to a transfer report, which claims the Magpies tried to sign Phil Foden on loan last month.
The January transfer window was a frantic month for Newcastle fans, who spent the first 30 days praying the club would finally smash their transfer record.
That’s exactly what they did, signing Miguel Almiron for a club-record £20m as well as completing the loan signing of Antonio Barreca.
It now looks like that’s not the only business Rafael Benitez wanted either, as a report from The Sun claims the Magpies were rejected in their attempts to sign Foden.
According to the report, Newcastle, Southampton and Bournemouth were all interested in taking the 18 year-old on loan for the remainder of the season.
With four trophies still left to fight for though, Pep Guardiola opted to keep the teenager, and hopes to give him more opportunities before the end of the campaign.
Loads of Newcastle fans have been weighing in on the report, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…

I’d rather offer the experience to our own youth. Don’t doubt his quality, just think Rafa has a lot to offer our youth and their development.
