Liam Kennedy and Miles Starforth talk over everything NUFC in this week's Mouth of the Tyne Podcast.

Here’s some highlights from this week’s edition:

Liam Kennedy on Dwight Gayle’s new NUFC deal

"I think Gayle is a 'tick all boxes' kind of signing. It almost covers all bases. If Newcastle United go down, he's the type of player you would want to sign and you'd probably have to pay a reasonable amount of money to bring that player in. If you stay up, you're protecting an asset. If you want to keep him as a reserve forward effectively then that's fine but you can also maybe sell him on for a little bit of money."

Miles Starforth on his contract renewal ‘one to watch’

"Fernandez is the one to watch. It's a no-brainer signing up Schar for - whether you see him being a Championship or Premier League defender next season – again, you protect the asset by activating his option. Fernandez is the interesting one because he's the one we'd all like to see stay but if you're Fernandez, you're going to wait a little bit and bide your time. You don't know what division this club is going to be in, come the end of the season."
