Newcastle's transfer activity this January as been nothing short of miraculous.
Having spent around £50m in the Summer on Wijnaldum, Mitrovic, Mbemba Toney and Thauvin, Mike Ashley has continued his spending spree this January, sanctioning the acquisitions of Shelvey, Saivet and Townsend.
As expected, Twitter has reacted in fine fashion to the unprecedented levels of spending from Ashley, who has previously proven himself to be a bit of a miser.
Here, we take a look at some of the best reactions:
Shelvey, fell out with club.
Townsend, fell out with club.
Berahino, fell out with club.
Mike there, building the mother of all time-bombs.

Wow, Doumbia deal apparently all but done then #nufc put in a £21mill bid for Berahino. Fuck dry January, I’m getting mortal…

Assuming Saido Berahino is valued at £21m because some pronounce it Berahinho. The Brazilian h adds between £6m-£8m.
