How relaxed are you with Newcastle transfer activity so far? Vote now

We are asking today, as a Toon fan, how relaxed are you with Newcastle transfer activity so far?

As of today (Tuesday 27 June), the only signing has been Christian Atsu for £6.2m.

He was at the club last season and after making 15 Championship starts, his loan has been turned into a permanent deal.

Newcastle had to make a decision quickly on Atsu either way, as the loan deal allowed them so many days after the end of the season to buy the Ghanaian international at that agreed £6.2m price.

Despite being linked with quite literally hundreds of supposed transfer targets, not one other deal has been completed.

Optimists would say that there is plenty of time and no need to be anxious yet, with still over nine weeks of the transfer window to go until the end of August.

They could add that in recent years signings tend to be announced mid-July onwards so why any different this time?

Pessimists though would say that there is only six days until pre-season training starts and Newcastle need signings made ASAP so they can have a full pre-season.

They could add that every day that goes by without signings made, could point to problems behind the scenes, with Rafa not being properly backed.

Difficult to make out on individual comments from social media etc, as to just how supporters generally feel about the lack of Newcastle transfer activity so far.

I guess the vast majority of fans aren’t completely one way or the other, 100% or 0% positive, with people tending to be somewhere in between.

So just how relaxed are you with the Newcastle transfer so far? Please indicate below and we will get a snapshot as to how Newcastle fans are feeling overall.
