Reliable Journalist Believes Newcastle United Can Go After Huddersfield Midfielder: Will He Suit Benitez?

Mark Douglas who is a very reliable source when it comes to news regarding Newcastle United believes that the Toon can go after Aaron Mooy in the upcoming summer transfer window if they go on to lose two of Isaac Hayden, Mohamed Diame or Shelvey this summer.

Shelvey has struggled for game time ever since the emergence of Sean Longstaff, and he is continually being linked with a move to West Ham United.

Huddersfield Town are almost destined to go down and as often is the case, the relegated teams lose some of their best players to the top flight clubs. Australian international Mooy has been one of the mainstays of the Terriers lineup, and he played a crucial role in the last two seasons when Huddersfield defied all odds to move to the Premier League and even survived in the English top flight.

Their honeymoon is soon set to come to an end as they sit bottom of the table with 14 points. Newcastle United who were expected to be in a relegation scrap are riding high, and a lot of credit for that needs to go to their tactician Rafael Benitez. His pragmatic approach and the form of Salomon Rondon has pushed them to safety, and they could even end up finishing in the top half of the table.

Mohamed Diame is currently in the final few months of his contract, and he too could depart from the club. Mooy can be a literal like for like replacement for someone like Shelvey as apart from impressive work rate; the 28-year-old can provide quality on the ball. He can do various kind of roles in the middle of the park, and his versatility should suit Benitez.

However, one has to say that at his best, Shelvey can be a matchwinner. On the other hand, Mooy is someone who would usually be consistent with his performances, but won’t be able to turn the game on its head. Nevertheless, he can be a decent squad player if the Magpies go after him and with Huddersfield more or less likely to go down, the midfielder himself might push for a move away from the club.

Benitez would hope that he can have decent money to spend in the upcoming transfer market to take the Tyneside outfit to the next level. A signing like Mooy might not get fans off their seat, but he can be a clever budget replacement for Newcastle’s outgoing midfielders.
