Goalkeeper Mark Gillespie has agreed a three-year deal with boyhood club,Newcastle He’s a complimentary representative after leaving Motherwell. Gillespie will be a replacement for Rob Elliot and will contend with Martin Dubravka & & Karl Darlow #NUFC

Rob Elliot left St. James’ Park during the week after 9 years at the club, and the 28- year-old has got here as his replacement.
Newcastle- born Gillespie is anticipated to now offer quality cover and competition for Martin Dubravka & & Karl Darlow, and it is safe to state that the club are done with transfer business in the goalkeeping department thissummer
Academy graduate Freddie Woodman does not seem in the club’s strategies at the minute in spite of his outstanding loan spell at Swansea City, and another loan exit or a permanent one might be on the cards for the 23- year-old.
Newcastle fans aren’t especially pleased with what is possibly their first finalizing of the summer, and here is how a few of them responded to it on Twitter:

Is this what we are decreased to now @premierleague we need to understand our location @Nufc

So would that suggest Freddie woodman is away also Keith

Last month it was coutiniho and bale, today its Carroll and Mark Gillespie, why do not the Premier league simply put us out or suffering, if they are going to decline it which I think they are simply have the spinal column to do it, the @premierleague have being a disgrace

Classic #nufc when we have among England’s best young keepers & & we buy an SPL keeper? Another piece of transfer business that casts more doubt over the #NUFCTakeover
— Chris Currie (@Wig82) June 27, 2020
Reasonably we wont see Gillespie in the NUFC top, will fight with Darlow to be Dubs backup, like Elliott did this season.
another loan for Woodman makes good sense too, much better than resting on the bench.
doesnt suggest anything for takeover ffs.

Reeks of Ashley this.

Does not bode well for Woodman I think? Presuming another loan for him next year. Do you understand what’s taking place with his contract #nufc
— Arran Whaite (@arranwhaite) June 27, 2020
Has Ashley/Bruce composed all over it
— Rafa Information (@FactsRafa) June 27, 2020
So that’s the takeover off, why would we sign him when we have Freddie woodman coming back who I would make our number 2

Aspiration. That’s Newcastle United in a nutshell.

Gillespie invested 8 years in the Newcastle academy and he nearly signed for the Magpies in March prior to the coronavirus break out.
He had actually held substantial conversations with the club about finalizing a pre-contract ahead of the summer and was very near to concurring a deal prior to the pandemic halted footballing activities.
A go back to his boyhood club is absolutely big for Gillespie, however it stays to be seen if he has what it requires to challenge Dubravka.
Newcastle aren’t anticipated to do any business in the transfer market till their ownership status is figured out.
