Newcastle United set to miss out on signing Lennon, fans react

Newcastle United are having a turbulent few months due to the takeover drama, results on the pitch and uncertainty over transfers.

Rafael Benitez is trying to make sure that the Magpies stay afloat in the Premier League, but at the moment the team are only three points above the relegation zone.

January can be an important transfer window for clubs in Newcastle’s predicament, as they can aim for members who could be the difference between staying up or dropping back into the Championship.

The North-East outfit have been linked to numerous targets, particularly forward players due to the current team’s continuous misfiring.

Within the rumour mill emerged a story from ESPN, who claimed that Newcastle were weighing up a move for Everton winger Aaron Lennon.

If the club’s interest was serious then they have been dealt a blow as BBC Sport claim that Burnley have agreed a deal to sign Lennon for an undisclosed fee.

After hearing the reports, Newcastle fans gave a mixed response on Twitter.
