Alan Shearer encourages Newcastle United to wrap up this brilliant Premier League deal
Newcastle legend Alan Shearer has implored the club to get a deal over the line for out-of-favour Manchester United star Jesse Lingard.
It is no secret in the media that Lingard is not happy at Old Trafford after failing to get the minutes that he was promised in the summer, and there has been alot of rumours that he wants out.
That opened the door to the new Newcastle board to show their interest in getting a Premier League deal done, and many reports have suggested that the Toon have been in contact about a possible loan deal for Lingard
Lingard would reportedly favour a loan move to St James’ Park given their current predicament and the Magpies are running out of time to reach an agreement for the attacking midfielder.
Addressing the media earlier this week, United interim manager Rangnick said he was aware of Newcastle’s interest but was unable to confirm whether Lingard would be staying or going.
‘With regard to Jesse, it’s the same as with quite a few other players,’ the German told reporters earlier this week.
‘He’s a really good player, I see that in every training session. For me it’s normal that other clubs like, for example, Newcastle show interest in him.
‘I’m not the one who is dealing with that. I know there might be some interest from other clubs but if you ask me now what will happen in the next 10 days until the closure of the window, I can’t answer that question I’m afraid.’
Shearer made it clear where he stands on the matter with a clear message to Newcastle on Twitter.
‘Would Jesse Lingard be a good signing for Newcastle United?’ a tweet from Statman Dave asked, to which Shearer bluntly responded: ‘YES’
Lingard is a brilliant footballer that would be a brilliant signing fir Newcastle, that is all that needs to be said guys
