Former Premier League player Peter Ramage has said via Twitter that he would love to see Crystal Palace’s Mile Jedinak sign for Newcastle United after reports emerged he could be leaving Selhurst Park.

Jedinak, an Australia international, joined Palace in 2011 and has since gone on to make over 150 league appearances for the South London club.

However, last season he spent a number of months on the peripherals of the first-team and with Palace strengthening further this summer, question marks have been raised over his future.

A recent report in The Sun claim Aston Villa are keen on his services, but former Palace and Newcastle man Peter Ramage believes if any Championship club would sign him it should be the Magpies.

Newcastle haven’t made the best of starts to life in the Championship following their relegation last term, losing 1-0 on the opening day to Fulham at Craven Cottage.

While Rafa Benitez’s men possess plenty of quality, what they perhaps lack is grit and determination through the middle - key characteristics needed to get out of the second tier.

Jedinak, 32, is a natural-born leader and he commands the respect of the dressing room while also having the quality to still play at the top level on a consistent basis.

Ramage believes he would be a great addition for Newcastle, and it’s hard to disagree after watching them against Fulham and seeing midfielder Isaac Hayden struggle without a senior figure by his side.
