A number of Newcastle United fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports claiming that the Magpies are in talks to sign Will Hughes from Watford this summer.

The Magpies are yet to land their first first-team signing of the window. Understandably, many supporters are hoping that Joe Willock makes his return at some stage.

According to The Sun, talks are underway with the Hornets regarding a potential move for Hughes. It is noted that Watford value the 26-year-old at £12 million.
