Newcastle United fans have been reacting to a claim that Kieran Trippier could be the first big-money signing following the takeover.
According to the Mirror, the England international is firmly in the Magpies’ new owners sights.
New manager Eddie Howe wants the 31-year-old, whom he worked with at Burnley.
Newcastle believe they can tempt Trippier, who has been seeing less game time at Atletico Madrid this season.
Diego Simeone has used different systems, so he hasn’t always been in the side.
That said, he has still made 15 appearances across all competitions.
The Mirror say in their report that Newcastle are ‘making moves’ to bring the star back to England.

Some Newcastle fans have been giving their thoughts about Howe wanting to sign Trippier.
A lot of supporters believe that Trippier would make a great signing.
He is obviously experienced, has been working with Simeone, one of the best defensive coaches in the game, and has brilliant set-piece quality.
Convincing him might be tough, but it would be a great start to the January window if Newcastle got him.

would be a class signing

Be a fantastic signing not just because of how he improves the team but he’d be our best set piece taker too
