Newcastle have yet to make a single signing this summer, and it is understandable why the fans are getting frustrated.
Although negotiations over transfers take time, pre-season training has started and preparations for the 2015-16 campaign are in full swing.
It is high time that Newcastle bring in the players that McClaren is interested in so that they can settle in quickly at the club and get ready for next season.
