The Newcastle United goalkeeper is again being linked with a move to Leeds United.
Newcastle United fans are reacting to fresh reports linking their player, Karl Darlow, with a move to Leeds United.
The Yorkshire Evening Post reports that Leeds have made enquiries over Darlow as they look to sign a new goalkeeper at the start of the January transfer window.
The 28-year-old spent the bulk of Newcastle’s 2016-17 Championship-winning campaign as first choice in goal, but has recently fallen behind Martin Dubravka in the Magpies’ pecking order.
And with Freddie Woodman – another Leeds-linked shot-stopper – and Rob Elliot for competition at St James’ Park, a winter move is not unlikely.
But what would those of a Newcastle persuasion make the potential Leeds recruit?
This is what they’re saying about Darlow on Twitter…
Championship level, never really proved himself in the Prem for us unfortunately! would be a good move if he gets the chance to play regularly for you— Daniel Seviour (@DanielSeviour) December 18, 2018
Championship standard keeper, so he’ll suit you down to the ground. Not good enough for the big leagues.— Mark Teasdale (@Teaster_) December 18, 2018
About as good as Anita was— Jake Pickthall (@JakePickthall98) December 18, 2018
Sell Karl Darlow. I liked him in the Championship, but he is wasted here. Our GK Set-up is perfect without him.— Robert Tennyson (@Tenno98) December 18, 2018
Martin Dubravka – Main (at/almost prime) GK
Freddie Woodman – Young and Hungry 2nd GK
Rob Elliot – Oldest and Club Veteran 3rd GK
Imagine flogging Darlow for the same amount we paid for Dubravka? At least Dick Turpin had the decency to wear a mask…— Andy (@Delcottio) December 18, 2018
He would be a good signing for you lot— Matt Taylor (@Matty_Taylor_94) December 18, 2018
Very good shot stopper, dodgy catching would be a very good signing for you tho— Connor blackmore⚫️⚪️ (@CJ_Blackmore) December 18, 2018
Good Champo level keeper. Makes the odd shocking howler but decent all round game. Silly haircut though— Jack (@JackStanley86) December 18, 2018
Goood young keeper. Awesome shot stopper makes some silly mistakes at times thats why he’s not 1st choice for us but good keeper in the championship— Waqas (@waqasNUFCtoon) December 18, 2018
Yea not bad, he’s prone to a mistake or 2 though— Steo Bermingham (@StephenBerming) December 18, 2018
He’s worth at least £6 million— Toonarmy (@Toontastik) December 18, 2018
Darlow is said to have cost Newcastle £4.5 million from Nottingham Forest four years ago, and is out of contract at the end of next season.
He has made 59 appearances for the Magpies, in which he has conceded 68 goals and kept 20 clean sheets.
Would the Newcastle goalie be a good addition for Leeds United?
