Revealed: 84% of Newcastle fans want move for Milenkovic

Newcastle fans have been debating a swoop for impressive Serbia youngster Nikola Milenkovic, and the overwhelming majority of fans are backing a move.

Newcastle have got a battle on their hands to keep hold of Jamaal Lascelles this summer, with plenty of top teams sniffing around the young Englishman.

The Magpies skipper had a sensational season, and his dominant central defensive partnership with Florian Lejeune was a major factor in the Toon Army’s charge up the table.

If Lascelles does leave, one player they could line up to replace him is Fiorentina’s Milenkovic, who has been an absolute beast for Serbia at the World Cup.

The towering 20 year-old stands at 6 ft 5, and made an incredible nine clearances in Serbia’s win over Costa Rica.

He also fits the old cliché of having good feet for a big man, completing 89% of his passing and the most accurate long balls of any outfield player in the 1-0 win.

The young defender has been linked with Everton, and now Newcastle fans have been debating making a summer swoop of their own.
