Newcastle United reporter Dominic Scurr was delighted with some news that has now emerged ahead of their game against Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.
The lowdown: Darsley Park plans
According to The Athletic, the Magpies have now submitted ambitious plans to North Tyneside Council to upgrade their training ground at Darsley Park in Benton.
They have admitted that their current facilities do not meet the standards required for a Premier League club, and possibly even the Championship.
The latest: Scurr reacts
Taking to Twitter, Scurr shared the type of upgrades that have been planned for the training ground, tagging them as ‘exciting‘.
The verdict: exciting
The plans to modernize the training ground are indeed exciting and show the ambition of the new owners to take the North East club to the next level.
In truth, it should have happened much sooner, with former owner Mike Ashley seemingly overlooking the idea of improving the facilities, but now the plans are finally in place.
Nevertheless, the improvements should also attract new players to the Toon, as they look to take the next step in their long-term project.
