Newcastle United boss Steve McClaren has labelled the capture of Andros Towsend a “great signing”.
“Bringing Andros to the Club is a great signing,” McClaren said. “He is a very good talent who is a current England international and should be one for years to come, too.
“Andros is a winger with an old-fashioned style. He can play on the right or the left, is two-footed, quick, very direct and loves taking on defenders and crossing the ball.
“He feels he has a lot to prove and I can’t wait to see him do that in a Newcastle shirt.”
