Revealed: 57% of Newcastle fans want to sell Lascelles in January


Plenty of Newcastle fans have been discussing their new-look defence, and a surprising 57 per cent of fans want to part ways with Jamaal Lascelles in January.

Selling Lascelles was unthinkable for Newcastle fans this summer, as the colossal young captain was absolutely crucial in the brilliant run of form that led the Magpies up to tenth last season.

An injury to Florian Lejeune and the departure of Chancel Mbemba forced two new signings though, and those new signings are now the clear first choice pairing.

Federico Fernanez and Fabian Schar have both been superb, immediately cementing themselves as fan favourites with their composure on the ball and heroic defending.

The pair were exceptional in last weekend’s win at Burnley, and the resurgence of Ciaran Clark may have pushed Lascelles even further down the pecking order.

With Lejeune set to return from injury very soon, the Magpies will have five top quality centre backs, and fans think it could be the perfect time to cash in on Lascelles.

The skipper signed a new contract earlier this season, meaning a top six club would have to spend an outlandish amount of money to sign him, money that could improve the Magpies in other positions.
