David de Gea is a player who knows the Premier League well and should we remain in the Champions League, he also has plenty of experience in that competition as well. Therefore, he is the closest possible option for Eddie Howe in his bid to replace Nick Pope in the starting eleven.

Newcastle are a rising club, so it would be a great opportunity for David de Gea to continue his legacy in England. As one of the most highly regarded players in the world, he has been without a club since his contract ended at Manchester United in the summer. As a modern goalkeeper who prioritises saving the ball rather than doing dangerous skills, he would be perfect for Eddie Howe's simple philosophy.
