Revealed: 73% of Newcastle fans want Mina to replace Lejeune

Newcastle are in desperate need of another centre back after the injury to Florian Lejeune, and nearly three quarters of fans want to move for Yerry Mina.

Both Everton and Newcastle are dangerously short of quality centre backs, and the Toffees have been looking to atone for that by signing Barcelona’s Mina.

The towering Colombian stunned everyone by scoring three headed goals at the World Cup, and is looking for a move away from the Spanish champions to find more regular playing time.

According to GOAL.com, Everton have turned their attentions to Marcos Rojo after Barcelona refused to budge from their £35m asking price though, so this could be the perfect time for Newcastle to swoop in.

Obviously Mike Ashley is not going to splash out £35m, but there were talks of a loan for Mina earlier this summer, and it could be best for all parties.

Mina would get regular playing time under a great manager in a very competitive league, and by the time he returns to Catalonia next summer Lejeune will have recovered from his cruciate ligament injury.

The 6 ft 4 ace would form an absolutely beastly partnership with Jamaal Lascelles, and 73 per cent of fans are backing a swoop.
