Unsettled Pascal Chimbonda is reported to be anxious to end his Tottenham days and join Kevin Keegan’s revolution at Newcastle.
Pascal Chimbonda – wants to join Keegan at Newcastle United
This will not be the last time we hear a player publicly say he wants to join Kevinâ€™s new revolution at Newcastle United. We think the draw on the players to Tyneside will be great, even though we will still probably not be able to offer European Football next year.Â Â
But the French right full-back has been playing well recently and has started five of the last six games despite being one of eight players Tottenham boss Juande Ramos reportedly wants to have leave the club.
After Tottenhamâ€™s 5-1 victory over Arsenal in the Carling Cup semi-final second leg on Tuesday, in which he played very well indeed, the Sun reported the 28-year-old telling pals:
“Kevin Keegan has approached me and they’ve offered me more money.â€
“I am definitely leaving Spurs. It’s all about the money. I don’t care about the final, I don’t care about the cup.”
We think Pascal would be a solid buy for the Tyneside club, and would have to fight it out with Habib Beye for the RB position – but that’s two good right backs at the club, if Pascal does finally arrive. Not too bad.
