Newcastle fans react as Magpies reportedly want Everton’s Lewis Gibson

A number of Newcastle United fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from the Daily Mail this week suggesting that the Magpies want Everton defender Lewis Gibson.

The Mail suggests that with Beardsley no longer working for Newcastle and Gibson’s Everton contract expiring in the summer, the Magpies are keen to bring the defender back.

The report notes that Gibson would be open to making a move back to St James’ Park. He is yet to make his senior debut for the Toffees.

They believe that he could be a real gem for the Magpies. And they are hoping that a deal can be done – which may not be a huge surprise following a game in which an academy graduate made himself an instant hero amongst the Toon Army.
