United have reacted in a somewhat mixed manner to a report that the club is keen on re-signing defender Lewis Gibson from next year. According to the Daily Mail, Peter Beardsley’s exit from St James’ Park has led to Gibson, 19, becoming interested in a return to Tyneside, two years since leaving for Everton in a deal worth £6million. However the defender’s expires next summer and that means a return to is on the cards. Newcastle fans do not seem to be sure what to think. Gibson has failed to break into the first-team at Goodison Park, leading to one fan saying he’s heard the youngster is “not rated”. are a team that has been through constant change for several years now. They cannot seem to stabilise in the and are constantly changing managers, which does not help young, up-and-coming players like Gibson. He is still someone that a Premier League club paid £6million to sign and if he is available on a free next year, should just sign him because there’s virtually no risk at all. It could be a masterstroke.
