Newcastle United fans not happy with links to Stoke striker Joselu

As reported by The Daily Mirror, Newcastle United have had a £12m bid rejected for Stoke City striker Joselu. The paper say it’s caused such a drama at Newcastle that the manager is set for showdown talks with owner Mike Ashley, furious that the deal could not be done.

The Magpies badly need some fresh blood in attack if they are to mount a serious bid to stay in the English Premier League next term and Joselu is apparently the man Benitez has set his sights on.

The Spanish striker doesn’t have the best of striking records, netting just nine times over the last two seasons at Stoke City and on loan at La Liga side Deportivo la Coruna.

However with a strong aerial presence and the ability to bring teammates around him into the game, he could offer a different option to what Newcastle currently have available to them. Plan Bs are often necessary in football and Joselu could provide that.

It’s not a signing that is particularly exciting supporters though and they took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the potential signing…
