Newcastle United have not signed any senior players in the January transfer window, and time is quickly running out with a short 8 days left in the January window for Keegan to add reinforcements to his Newcastle United squad.
Kevin Keegan – working hard with his staff to bring in new players
Thereâ€™s news that Kevin Keegan, Terry McDermott and Arthur Cox are pouring over player videos at the Benton Training ground, in an attempt to identify players who we could either bring in during January, or have Chairman Chris Mort go after for the summer.
The priority of course is now, and time is running out quickly although, as we would expect, the number of players we have been linked with is long. Heaven knows how long that number will be during the summer as Kevin will get very serious about bringing in class to the club at that time. In January, here are just some of the players we have linked with.
Michael Carrick â€“ Manchester United
Wayne Bridge â€“ Chelsea
Wes Brown â€“ Manchester United
Deco – Barcelona
Jermain Defoe â€“ Tottenham Hotspur
Johan Elmander – Toulouse FC
Barry Robson – Dundee United
Shaun Wright-Phillips – Chelsea
Carlos Cuellar – Rangers
Sol Campbell – Portsmouth
Marek Cech – FC Porto
Nicky Shorey â€“ Reading
John Arne Riise – Liverpool
Daniel Van Buyten â€“ Bayern Munich
Dean Ashton – West Ham
John Arne Riise. â€“ Liverpool
David Beckham â€“ LA Galaxy
David Bentley. – Blackburn
Weâ€™d have hoped we could get 3 good players in during January, but as every day passes by, the chances of that happening realistically are reduced. But we’re still hoping – and praying.
