Yes please: Newcastle fans react to reports of possible Benito arrival

According to The Sun, Young Boys defender Loris Benito has arrived in England ahead of a potential move to Newcastle United.

The 27-year-old, who is a two-time Switzerland international, has helped Young Boys win the Swiss Super League in each of the last two campaigns.

The defender’s contract with his current club will expire at the end of June, though, suggesting that he will be seeking pastures new.

According to The Sun, Benito has touched down in England to undergo ‘final talks’ with Newcastle ahead of a potential move to St James’ Park.

Should the move go through then Benito could become Newcastle’s first signing of a new era at the club, funded by UAE billionaire Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

Indeed, Magpies owner Mike Ashley is said to be in talks to sell to the cousin of Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour.
