Newcastle United urged to complete free agent signing this week

Posted by

Eddie Howe has been urged to consider signing Kasper Schmeichel. 

The former Leicester City number one moved to Nice 12 months ago, but after reportedly arriving in poor physical condition, including having a too-high body fat percentage, the experienced Denmark international was released at the end of last season.

Now a free agent and eligible to join another club, Schmeichel has been tipped to join the Magpies and rival the likes of Nick Pope for the right to be the Geordies’ number one.

Sky Sports journalist Michael Bridge, who spoke to GiveMeSport, believes a move to St. James’ Park could benefit all parties.

“I’ve just seen that Kasper Schmeichel has left Nice on a free,” he said.

“I might be putting two and two together and making five, but that would be a good move for him, surely.”

  1. God yes. Pope has gone off the boil, for both Newcastle & England. He was at fault for the first two goals against Brighton.
    He has not looked comfortable since his hand operation at the end of last season.

  2. Yeah definitely, pope’s a go keeper but I think he’s looking a bit dodgy at the moment.Kasper is a very good keeper and would suit us at the Toon.
