Newcastle fans are completely split on the latest transfer news, as reports claimed the Magpies are lining up a summer swoop for Ryan Fredericks.
Ryan Fredericks will be a free agent from July 1, and the Chronicle believes Newcastle are targeting the Fulham right back.
DeAndre Yedlin improved towards the end of the season, but the probable departure of Javier Manquillo means the Magpies have just one senior player in that position.
Fredericks will be available on a free transfer, seemingly opting to move on to bigger and better things despite his promotion with Fulham last weekend.
In 47 Championship starts this season, the Englishman grabbed seven assists, and showed off his defensive skills too, averaging nearly two tackles and three clearances per game.
The 25 year-old Fredericks seems an almost perfect fit for Rafael Benitez’s side with his pace and power, but fans clearly aren’t too convinced about the links.

No it wouldn't. He's no better than Yedlin.

Would be a great signing. Not much between him and Yedlin but they both far better than Manquillo

Thought he looked bang average against Villa

That would be awesome to have him in the ranks.

Are you having a laugh here? The guy is bang average no better than we have. If we are going to sell or release unwanted players, the ones been brought in have to be challenging our first team regulars!!
