How Newcastle’s Nathan Byrne could turn Newcastle into a force in the AFC title race
- by admin
Newcastle’s new signing Nathan Byrne is one of the best defensive players in the world.
He has also proved his ability as a leader and a player to be reckoned with, and is now on his way to making a name for himself in the English game.
The former Wales international was released by Cardiff City in January and then signed for Newcastle from Southampton on a free transfer.
He is the fourth player in a week to be sold by Newcastle, with Sam Allardyce’s £6.5m move to Leicester City, which was announced on Tuesday, and the £12m purchase of former Aston Villa defender Luke Varney for an undisclosed fee.
Byrne is not only a player of tremendous talent, but also one of Newcastle’s best.
He scored eight goals for Southampton last season, helping the Saints win the Premier League title and the Champions League.
He also became the youngest ever player to score in his first five league games when he scored his first goal against Liverpool on November 17.
The 20-year-old also made a name in the England under-20s, and has played for England U21s, Southampton and Crystal Palace.
Nathan Byrne is a great signing for Newcastle.

His performances in front of goal have been consistently good and he has also shown glimpses of his attacking talents.
Bryant has scored seven goals in 21 appearances for Newcastle and is looking to add to his tally this season.
He was on the scoresheet twice in the last five minutes of Newcastle United’s 4-0 win against Liverpool in the Premier, which clinched their place in the Europa League.
The 23-year of age winger scored Newcastle’s second goal when he whipped in an in-swinging free-kick after the break, and also added a second from the penalty spot after his header from a corner was blocked by Luis Suarez.
The young striker has been one of England’s best players in recent years, but he will have a huge amount to prove in the coming months.
Boyle is one the best players on the planet and will have his chance to make a name with Newcastle this season, especially if the striker can continue to improve on his performances in the league.
Newcastle’s manager is confident in his signing, despite the club’s relegation to the Championship.
He told the club website: “He is a really good player.
He has been fantastic at Southampton, we will see what he can do this season in the Premiership.”
He is one who is hungry to improve, and we are delighted to have him on board.
“Newcastle have been a constant thorn in the side of the Premier league for many years, and will be hoping to build on the momentum they have built up in recent weeks.
They have now won seven of their last eight league games, having won just two in their previous 12 matches.NUFC are in a race to the bottom in the Championship, and they could be in danger of missing out on a Champions League spot if they fail to win their next three matches.
