Newcastle United are heading for a very exciting future right now, with the club seeming destined for relegation at the start of the new year, although they have turned it around since with help from the new January signings of Kieran Trippier, Chris Wood, Bruno Guimaraes and Matt Target and now sit in 14th place and nine points above the relegation zone.
Despite the impressive form the magpies have had, they are still struggling for goals and currently have a goal difference of -17. Jesse Lingard could offer something more creative going forward after not getting the chance to display his quality due to his lack of playing time at Manchester United and may allow Newcastle to change the way they attack with a new dynamic attacking midfielder.
An improvement in the midfield in the form of Lingard could be a positive sign for the future of the Magpies as it may lay the foundations for a push next season for the club to reach European football for the first time in a decade; due to the new takeover happening for the Toon Army this season they may be able to splash the cash and take Lingard’s signature when he becomes available on a free transfer at the end of the campaign.
Lingard is priced at 6/4 to join Newcastle in the summer - click here to claim this bet in your bet slip!
