Newcastle Interested In 18 Year-Old Mark Beevers


Newcastle United are reported to be interested in Sheffield Wednesday’s young up and coming star Mark Beevers.

Mark Beevers – strong 6’4″ 18 year-old defender

The youngster is now playing for the first team at Hillsborough, and his performances are being tracked by a number of clubs, which now includes Newcastle United. Manchester United, Everton and Chelsea are all said to be interested in the youngster.

18 year-old Mark is a 6’4” defender who was born in Barnsley, England. He was recently placed on standby for the England under-19s upcoming game against Croatia on 5 February 2008. Andy Carroll is already in England’s squad for that game.

Mark made his senior debut at Southampton in January 2007 at age 17, giving an accomplished display at the heart of the defense. He had joined the club at age 12. He is strong in the air and hard in the tackle and has continued to progress during his first full-time campaign at Hillsborough.

He has been a regular in the Owls Reserve team and was first called into the first team 16 for the FA Cup tie with Manchester City in January 2007, having been awarded a professional contract in late 2006. Mark has played 22 times so far for the Owls.

It seems like £1M is close to the fee it will take to get the youngster. However, it may be difficult to persuade Mark that his chances are better at Newcastle than at other clubs. That’s what we’ll have to compete on, so at least we need to go after the youngsters we really want, and let the chips lie where they may.

On 28 January 2008, Sheffield Wednesday signed Beevers to an improved contract which runs through 2012.

Comments welcome.

    I don’t know about Marker Beevers but i think a Beever would have done a better job than Smith has done for us this season.

    maybe we could sign him for £1m plus they get Tozer or Kadar on loan for a season as a replacement?

    I am excited by all these youngsters but it seems after the five we got in January things have dried up somewhat and we seem to be losing out to other clubs, as was the case with Kalouda.

    Lets see if we can make progress with the signings of Beevers and Sam Vokes in the next few days.

    maybe charlie, but i doubt it, they are going to want to cash in on their top youngsters.

    By the way, did Super Oba ever sign a new contract. I hope he has/does. I wouldnt mind him being our highest paid player once Owen leaves, he certainly deserves it for sticking with a team that loses all the time, with managers that refuse to play him as much as he should.

    I didnt rate Oba before African nations as when he played i didnt feel he had improved enough from last yr, however, he seems to have improved a great deal since coming back from the african nations.

    to tell the truth rich, i dont think its a case of people competing with us, but more a case of who WE can compete with…and with the state our club is currently in, thats probably nobody outside of the bottom eight of the league. Just like Pandev, Gomis and Fabiano, he already looks way too good to want to join our club, especially from a team in the champions league every year. Pity, he is a great winger.

    Our performances over the last few years has robbed us of the opportunity to sign these types of players unless we offer them crazy wages. So it looks like we will have to continue with the youth team route…which i dont mind to tell the truth, it just ensures we have a good structure to the club and a bright future.

    Tom Toon i have seen keiron gibbs live quite a few times and he is class, in my opinion he is better than traore, and neither will get first team with clichy there anyway, so maybe he would be a good buy. Also, Fran Merida is not going to get a chance with cesc there so we should be looking to buy a few arsenal youths. Randall is class but i dont think Wenger will sell him
