The 20-year-old only signed for the Magpies 18 months ago, but he has been one of their best performers at development squad level.

And Fernandez’s displays over pre-season may just have given Benitez something to think about heading into the new campaign.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Newcastle scored their goals against Hull through Joselu and Ayoze Perez, as they remained unbeaten in pre-season.

Fernandez could yet be one of the biggest beneficiaries from Benitez’s side’s struggles in the transfer market.

Newcastle have failed to get deals over the line for a number of targets, and the lack of new arrivals could force Benitez to look at his youngsters.

Fernandez has arguably been the pick of Newcastle’s performers over pre-season, with the Spaniard looking to maintain his place in the first-team over the course of the campaign now.
