There is a report that Newcastle may be after 20 year-old Burnley striker and midfield player Kyle Lafferty.
Kyle looks a typical Allardyce player at 6â€™ 4â€ and fits the mold of players Newcastle chairman Chris Mort said they would like to bring to the club. Newcastle are after young players with potential, who have yet to develop their skills fully, much like the way Arsenal have brought in great players to the London club under Arsene Wenger.
The report was in yesterday’s People Sunday newspaper.
Kyle Lafferty – 20 year old Burnley striker – scoring for Northern Ireland
Kyle has played for Burnley around 53 times and scored 6 goals. He’s also played for Northern Ireland 12 times and scored 2 goals. Weâ€™re not sure how Kyleâ€™s style of play compares with that of 18 year-old Andrew Carroll, who is ourÂ 6â€™3â€ striker who is currently on a 6 months loan to Preston North End. Kyle just turned 20 last month and was born in Enniskillen, Northern Ireland, in September of 1987.
Weâ€™d like to see 3-4 young good players brought into the club during the January transfer window, so weâ€™ll keep a look out for reports that identify possible young players we may be linked to. Not sure if this is true but interesting player nevertheless.
