What is it with some people?
Although, under our present circumstances, we accept that the club has to sell in order to raise funds to buy, or a bit of wheeling and dealing as Rafael Benitez puts it, we’re not mad enough to sell our star defender Jamaal Lascelles.
Last month, here at Vital Newcastle, we ran several articles relating to the player, including, Click Here and Click Here, it hasn’t stopped yet more speculation appearing relating to the club captain.
Searching through the social network sites I stumbled across the following:
Everton interested in buying Jamaal Lascelles in next week – Guardian – https://t.co/ZNHspmuJYD
— Newcastle United (@toonnews) August 1, 2018
Now I accept that Everton are a club with big ambitions, even more so after living in the shadows of Liverpool for so long and I also readily recognise that to back up this ambition they have been far more active in the transfer window that perhaps we have, however how many times do we have to shout from the rooftops that Jamaal Lascelles is not for sale?
Or is it a case that if enough speculative column inches are generated then it will eventually happen?
Let’s sincerely hope not
