Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic has been encouraged to join Newcastle United this summer.

Former Newcastle goalkeeper Shaka Hislop told ESPN: “I think he’d get the management he needs at Newcastle United.

“Listen, if Newcastle come in for Christian Pulisic, if I have anything to do with advising him, I’m telling him take it.

“Let’s remember Christian Pulisic has struggled to establish himself in a team that just finished 12th in the league.

“And given his stop-start and inconsistencies in English football – even dating back to his latter [Borussia] Dortmund days – right now, to get a team finishing in the top-four, top-half of the Premier League, I can’t think of any other.”
