Yesterday we asked you which of Andy Carroll, Saido Berahino and Charlie Austin would sign for Newcastle this summer, if any of them.
Journalists close to the club have claimed that NUFC are now targeting English players with experience of the Premier League, rather than budget buys from abroad.
Mike Ashley’s end of season speech about a new beginning and an ambitious outlook to prevent further failure, was met with a mixed reaction from supporters.
Then after Steve McClaren’s coronation the rumours of big signings were ramped up.
The Daily Mirror were the only newspaper given access to the new Head Coach on Wednesday and they have since reported that Charlie Austin is a ‘done deal’ and fellow English striker Saido Berahino is also a serious target for Newcastle.
In addition we have had the usual speculation about an Andy Carroll return, though there are claims it is a serious possibility this time.
We gave eight options for Newcastle fans to vote from and these are the results:
44% None of the three
18% Only Charlie Austin
17% Austin and Berahino
9% Austin and Carroll
5% Only Andy Carroll
4% Austin, Berahino and Carroll
2% Only Saido Berahino
1% Berahino and Carroll
Whilst almost half (44%) believed Newcastle would still end up buying none of the three English players, when you break down the results you get the following that the supporters believed:
48% think Newcastle WILL sign Charlie Austin
24% think Newcastle will buy Saido Berahino
19% think Newcastle will buy Andy Carroll
