Newcastle United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to speculation that the club are interested in signing Ashley Young from Manchester United this summer.
According to The Daily Star, Newcastle are among three Premier League clubs who are eyeing a move for the England international winger.
The British newspaper claims that the England international winger could be available for a transfer fee of around £8 million, with Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur also reported to be interested in securing his services this summer.
It has been reported that Young wants a new contract, and that he will force an exit from Old Trafford if he feels that he is unwanted.
The 30-year-old was an important player for Louis van Gaal’s side during the 2014-15 campaign, but the signing of winger Memphis Depay from PSV earlier this summer has raised doubts whether he will be able to play all the time this season.
Following the report that Newcastle are interested in Young, the Magpies’ fans took to Twitter to have their say.
Below are some of the best comments:
Ashley Young and Charlie Austin would be two good signings for the Toon still will need to strengthen in defence!! #NUFC— JB (@johnhalbitting) July 31, 2015
I really like the idea of Ashley Young's crossing ability and Mitrovic's heading ability coming together at #NUFC, but it's a long shot.— Evin (@EvG_Football) July 30, 2015
I'd take Ashley Young here for £8m, still got a good 3/4 seasons in him, could be the winger we're looking for. #NUFC— Geordie News (@Geordie_news) July 30, 2015
