Kevin Keegan talked to the Newcastle Journal this morning, and said he wants three quality players in January, but itâ€™s uncertain whether he will be able to get them all.
Kevin Keegan – wants 3 top players in January
Itâ€™s never a good time to bring in top players in January, but we have at least two things going for us to attract players now:
- Players will likely want to join the new Keegan revolution at Newcastle
- Ashley has deep pockets to persuade clubs to part with their players â€“ even in January
Kevin told the Newcastle Journal this morning:
â€œIâ€™d like three players, Iâ€™ve got the three Iâ€™d like in mind, but I might not get them because this is a difficult time to do it,â€
â€œWe need general strengthening and to bring in three people in the next two weeks would be fantastic, because weâ€™ve not got a big squad.â€
One of the players we have already covered a couple of times is Dundee Unitedâ€™s Barry Robson, who we think is wanted by Kevin and will cost only around Â£1.5M.
Dundee Unitedâ€™s manager Craig Levein said last night.
â€œSomeone has told me Newcastle are interested,â€ â€œIâ€™d love to keep him here forever, but if someone makes us an offer, weâ€™ll discuss it. Until then, I donâ€™t see the point.â€
â€œHeâ€™s our player and weâ€™ve got a match against Kilmarnock next week. Heâ€™s a good player and he has done well to maintain his focus despite the speculation.â€
But Keegan will not be deterred, and he is expected to press ahead with his plans to make Robson his first signing and it may be that Barry has played his last game for Dundee United – against Aberdeen on Saturday, when he scored two goals.
Maybe we can get him tomorrow?
