Lots of Newcastle United fans have been discussing former youth striker Ivan Toney, after the Peterborough forward was linked with a potential summer move to AFC Bournemouth.

Toney joined the Magpies in 2015 from childhood side Northampton Town but only played 41 minutes of senior football over four appearances, before the club turned a £400,000 profit on his services by selling him to the Posh for around £650k in 2018.

Rafa Benitez was often loath to name the Northampton-born striker in his matchday plans between loan spells with Barnsley, Shrewsbury, Scunthorpe and Wigan, but Toney has well and truly kicked on since his move to London Road.

After scoring 23 goals in 55 games last season, including 16 in 44 League One appearances, the 23-year-old has struck the back of the net 25 times in 38 games this term to reportedly attract Premier League interest.

Would you welcome Toney back to St. James' Park?

According to The Sun, Bournemouth are lining Toney up as a potential summer replacement for Josh King at the Vitality Stadium, whilst the Cherries ace is looking likely to leave at the end of the season with Manchester United sniffing around.

Burnley and Championship side Middlesbrough are also watching Toney’s performances with a keen interest, even though the 6 ft 2 forward could cost as much as £13million.

Here are some of the messages shared from fans discussing Toney’s talents and whether Benitez made a mistake by allowing him to leave…

In other Newcastle United news, a £20m midfielder’s agent has confirmed his client would consider joining the Magpies this summer.
