Newcastle United are securing a move for Scottish defender Charlie McArthur making it their third signing in the transfer window.
The young sensation relished impressive performances in his four appearances for the Scottish Championship winners. Should the club get the signing over the line, this could be the third signing for the Magpies.
As reported by Daily Telegraph’s Mike McGrath, the Kilmarnock defender is on the verge of completing a move to St. James’ Park. The 17-year-old sensation will train with the Magpies U-23 squad before the pre-season kicks off.
After the club announced a complete takeover in terms of ownership, the dynamics of the club may change next season. The excitement among fans around the new transfers seems justifiable as the club does not want to slow down.
Busy Summer for Newcastle United
Making it possibly their third signing this summer, the management intends to bring players for the long-term benefit of the club. Manager Eddie Howe hopes for a youth setup in the near future with the coming in of the new owners.
The arrivals of McArthur, Matt Targett, and Alex Murphy clearly project the intent to build a future for the Magpies. Newcastle could be seen as one of the most desired clubs to be a part of in the near future.
Moreover, the struggles endured by the club last season could come to an end with the owner’s takeover. Work seems to be progressing for the Magpies as they appear to be very active on the transfer market.
However, the manager still has a long summer ahead of him and has real work to do. The gaffer will need to oversee the issues dealt by the squad last summer and add fresh legs.
Howe will hope to better this year’s campaign with a competitive squad and not make the mistakes the club made last year. Fans appear optimistic and the Magpies have not let them down in terms of transfer activity, unlike other clubs.
However, the main talking needs to be done on the pitch and their fate remains to be seen for the next season.
