Surprising news in the People today suggesting that Kevin Keegan would want to bring Kevin Nolan to Newcastle, if Bolton are relegated this season.
Kevin Nolan – a Keegan target during the summer?
We think one of the reasons Big Sam was sacked at Newcastle was that he indicated that one player he wanted to bring in during January was Kevin Nolan, his former captain from his old club Bolton Wanderers. The players Sam had wanted in January didn’t excite owner Mike Ashley one little bit.
Maybe thatâ€™s just paper talk but itâ€™s surprising news that Kevin would be interested in Nolan, although Nolan can be a good attacking player and weâ€™re sure Keegan can get the very best out of the player.
The People suggests that Kevin Keegan will offer Bolton skipper Kevin Nolan a Premier League lifeline if the Trotters do fail to beat the drop, which looks increasingly likely after their 4-0 hammering at Villa Park yesterday..
And the news is that the Newcastle manager will hope to lure Nolan to the north-east in a Â£4M deal even if Bolton somehow manage to avoid relegation. We have no idea if this story is accurate, but the more we think about it, it could well have some truth in it.
The midfield is an important part of a Kevin Keegan team, and while Barton and Butt are doing a good job right now we certainly need reinforcements in that area of the team.
We actually think Â£4M for Kevin Nolan would be a good deal for Newcastle, and if Kevin Keegan really wants the player, it even seems likely to happen.
What do you think about this?
