Charles N’Zogbia’s agent Willie McKay has said that Charles would be open to joining Tottenham Hotspur.
Charles N’Zogbia - unsettled at Newcastle again?
These were fueled by the player’s agent who confirmed the north London club were in talks with Newcastle and suggested the player would be interested in a possible switch. McKay went public today saying that the London club were ready to bid for the 21 year-old Frenchman. But Tottenham immediately denied they were going to bid for the former Le Havre youngster.
But here again we have an agent causing trouble between two Premiership teams, and what’s true is probably that Tottenham have been feeling out how Charles would react to a bid from them.
Of course, the agent gets a cut on any deal, so it’s in their best interests to have the players move around, and that often leads to uncomfortable situations clubs are put in â€“ like this one.
But having already seen Woodgate move to Tottenham in preference to Newcastle, and then play excellently in last night’s Spurs draw at Everton – this will come as another blow to the Newcastle club.
Keegan has praised N’Zogbia’s since returning to St James’ Park â€“ and only yesterday said he was not letting anybody leave the club in January. But it may well be that N’Zogbia has again become unsettled at the club, and is having his mind turned by the bright lights of London.
Keegan recently talked about Charles:
“I like him very much. He’s a player who never stops trying to do things.“He’s a player the opposition don’t want to play against.”
“He challenges you, comes at you and tries to take you on.”
So this may be a problem for the club to hold onto one of their brightest prospects â€“ again. It will probably come a head in the summer, if he really is unsettled.
Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse.
But hey, let’s get too down in the dumps â€“ a good win on Sunday is all we need to lift the gloom â€“ and we can certainly achieve that.
Comments very welcome.
