Kevin Campbell makes Mike Ashley claim that fans will love
Former Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell believes Newcastle fans "deserve better" after a poor transfer window.
The Magpies have brought in just one player this summer in Joe Willock and fans are expecting another battle against relegation.
Campbell told Football insider: “I think the fans have had enough.
“I say that with the utmost respect because I do respect that club a lot. They deserve better.
“They have brought one player in, Willock, and they are not improving in anything. Then a statement comes out like that, unbelievable.
“The fans have had it up to here. They just want a change, new owners and a fresh start.
“They aren’t getting that at the moment, and that’s the frustrating thing.”
From Cincinnati to Saudi Arabia - where are Newcastle United's 'exiteers' now?
It was a frustrating transfer window for Newcastle United once again.
Joe Willock proved to be the only senior addition to Steve Bruce's squad, with deadline-day loan arrival Santiago Munoz added to the academy setup.
United did prove successful however in trimming the wage bill, with a number of first-team and academy talents released or sold.
Andy Carroll and Henri Saivet currently remain free agents, while academy talents such as Tom Allan, Matty Longstaff and Jake Turner have all secured loans.
But how have the others started at their new clubs?
