Newcastle United supporters are refusing to get swept up in transfer rumours linking the club to Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas and Manchester City’s Yaya Toure.
The Magpies are on a high after securing promotion to the Premier League and then taking the Championship title at the weekend.
A 3-0 victory over Barnsley on Sunday ensured that Newcastle finished one point above Brighton and lifted the trophy.
With a new Premier League season on the horizon for the North-East outfit, speculation over who manager Rafael Benitez will buy in the summer has intensified.
In his column for The Mirror, pundit Stan Collymore urged Newcastle to make a move for ex-Barcelona and Arsenal midfielder Fabregas.
The Sun has reported that Toure, who has been a City player for the past seven years, is also on Benitez’s radar.
Most fans are not taking these rumours seriously, and have given their frank views on Twitter.
