How relaxed are you with the Newcastle transfer activity so far? Vote now
We are asking today, as a fan, how relaxed are you with Newcastle transfer activity so far?
As of today (Sunday 9 July), the signings so far have been Christian Atsu for £6.2m in May and then Florian Lejeune added this past week for £8.7m from SD Eibar.
At 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, only Florian Lejeune has been added in the following two months..
Optimists would say that there is plenty of time and no need to be anxious yet, with still over seven weeks of the transfer window to go until the end of August.
They could also add, that in recent years signings tend to be announced mid-July onwards so why any different this time?
Pessimists though would say that pre-season training started a week ago and the first friendly is now only five days away, with Newcastle needing signings made ASAP so they can make as full a use of pre-season as possible.
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 at this moment in time, with kick-off against Spurs now five weeks away today.
(We asked the same question two weeks ago, so it will be interesting to see how the results compare and contrast…for better or worse.)
