Newcastle legend Rob Lee has declared about his old club: ‘Great signings but don’t stop now’.

The former United midfielder was reacting to the signings of Georginio Wijnaldum and the reports on Friday that Charlie Austin is also on his way to Tyneside.

Lee says that the QPR striker is ‘just the kind of player the club needs’.

Whilst the striker has only had the one season in the Premier League, the previous three seasons saw him starting 98 league games and scoring an impressive 59 goals.

Last season of course, Charlie Austin scored 18 Premier League goals for the team that finished rock bottom.

With only 23 days until the season kicks off for United, NUFC are desperate to bring in at least one credible goalscorer.

Let’s hope that Rob Lee is right and Newcastle are signing Charlie Austin (or equivalent) plus other ‘Great signings’.

Rob Lee writing on Kicca:

‘If Charlie Austin has signed for Newcastle that is great, great news for the fans and the club.

It shows real intent by United and shows they are prepared to spend big and compete in the transfer market.

A lot of clubs were after Austin so it is great if he has chosen to go to Newcastle United.

Austin is British and he has shown he can score in the Premier League. That is just the kind of player the club needs.

Austin would be the second signing within a week – I just hope there are three or more players on the horizon.

My message to the club is simple…..great signings but don’t stop now.’
