Newcastle fans divided on link with Martin Skrtel

As reported by Fotomac, Newcastle United are interested in a move for Fenerbahce defender Martin Skrtel this summer.

With Rafa Benitez looking for defensive reinforcements in his bid to guide the Magpies to a comfortable finishing position in the English Premier League next season, it seems he’s set his sights on a player he knows well from his time at Liverpool.

The Spaniard signed Skrtel for the Reds in 2008 where the defender enjoyed a fantastic few years, even winning the club’s Player Of The Year award in 2012.

Now 32 years of age the Slovakian international is coming off a fine campaign in a Fenerbahce shirt, helping them qualify for Europe with consistent defensive performances.

However, Newcastle fans are divided on whether he will add anything to their first-team set-up. Some see him as an excellent addition who can add a lot of experience to the side while others reckon he’s a cheap option well past his prime.
