Some Newcastle United fans on social media have been reacting after it was reported that they’re interested in signing Manchester United’s Axel Tuanzebe.

The Magpies could certainly do with some reinforcements at the back, and it seems as though the fanbase are very much on board with the idea of bringing Tuanzebe to St James’ Park.

The defender isn’t proven at Premier League level, but he has shown his credentials in the Championship in the past, impressing during a loan spell with Aston Villa.

Newcastle fans are keen to see the centre-half brought in, and we can understand why.

United’s defence has been decent, but there is a significant lack of pace amongst their centre-backs, and Tuanzebe would certainly bring more energy to what has been a rather lethargic backline.

Newcastle may once again be fighting off relegation this season, and as ever the key to staying up in the Premier League campaign is a strong defence, so Tuanzebe would be a welcomed addition.
