Nick Pope is expected to miss time away from the game after the Newcastle United goalkeeper got injured against Manchester United. The 31-year-old was in pain during his side’s 1-0 win late Saturday evening.

With a huge pile of fixtures on it, Newcastle United will want to look at some resourceful goalkeepers for the next few months. In this article let us take a closer look at the 5 goalkeepers Newcastle United can sign for free. 

#1. David De Gea –


The former Manchester United icon is still looking for a club and could end up at Newcastle United. The 32-year-old left Old Trafford with an air of controversy surrounding his exit after 12 years at the club. If Newcastle can sign De Gea they will acquire a goalkeeper with a wealth of Premier League experience. 

#2. Timo Horn –


The 30-year-old hasn’t found a club since being released by FC Koln after playing 299 games. Newcastle United could swoop in to sign the German who was known to be a safe bet between the goalposts.

#3. Kieren Westwood –


At the age of 39, Kieren Westwood isn’t a spring chicken but has plenty of experience. Newcastle United can count on his experience and do what Manchester City did early in their Abu Dhabi days. Shay Given was signed by City as cover due to the experience he had in the league.

#4. Sergio Asenjo –


Yet another experienced goalkeeper that Newcastle United can look to sign is Sergio Asenjo. The 34-year-old is looking for a club after spending a season at Valladolid. Asenjo is known for his excellent shot-stopping skills and is also a good distributor of the ball.

#5. Jed Steer –


The former Aston Villa player is out of the club at the age of 31 and might fit the right profile for Newcastle United. Jed Steer last played for Luton Town in a handful of games before returning to Villa Park. Once his contract expired Jed Steer has turned to punditry but a return to football could very well be on the cards.
