Newcastle fans upset as rumoured Mangala move potentially falls through

Newcastle United fans face an anxious transfer deadline day as they await their club making the signings that can help them survive in the English Premier League.

The Magpies have failed to make a single signing so far this month, a situation that hasn’t exactly gone down well with supporters.

Can the club pull out all the stops at the last minute?

One man they were reported to be tracking in the final days of the window was Manchester City defender Eliaquim Mangala, a player who has plenty of experience at the elite level and is rated at £13.5m by Transfermarkt.

However it appears he’ll be another target they fail to attract to St James’ Park with Sky Sports reporting that Everton are confident of sealing a deal for the Frenchman at some point today.

That news has upset Newcastle supporters, who are growing tired of the club’s inability to get deals over the line. Some are even calling it the worst transfer window they’ve ever seen.

They took to Twitter to discuss latest developments…
