Former Arsenal winger and current Athletico Madrid’s player Jose Antonio Reyes wants a return to the Premiership.
Jose Reyes – former Arsenal star wants Premier League return
Reyes is set to leave Athletico Madrid at the end of the season, but mainly because he has not been playing well and has not made any impact since his arrival from Real Madrid last summer.
The Sunday People is reporting that Reyes is looking at a return to England in a bid to revive his career, with Newcastle United being stated as one of the clubs monitoring developments.
But we will always be mentioned as one when a decent player comes up for transfer.
Jose was a good player when he was at Arsenal but we’re not sure about his character and temperament.
And it may be too cold in Newcastle for him, even with two sets of gloves on, so we’re not at all sure about Jose to Newcastle being a good move for us.
Here is the 24 year-old winger’s playing history:
Years Club App Goals 1999â€“2004 Sevilla 95 25 2004â€“2007 Arsenal 69 16 2006â€“2007 Real Madrid 30 6 (loan) 2007â€“ AthlÃ©tico 20 0 2003â€“ Spain 21 4
It’s easy to see from those numbers how disappointing Jose’s been at Athletico, where he’s yet to score a single goal.
But of course if Kevin Keegan thinks he can get the best out of Jose then so be it. It’s really up to Kevin if he thinks Reyes can do a job at Newcastle United.
What do you think – would Reyes be a good buy for us in the summer?
