Sports Direct most popular names on shirts includes 3 Newcastle players
Which Newcastle players have proved most popular when it comes to fans getting names on the back of replica shirts?
I must admit that a team without any real stand out stars, it is pretty difficult to guess who would be most popular.
On the face of it, none of the new signings instantly grab the attention. Obviously that can change in time and certainly Mikel Merino is promising to be a fan favourite with his contribution so far.
However, which Newcastle players have proved most popular this summer.
