Kevin Keegan – has handed over his list of transfer targets
Kevin talked about the type of players he can get to the club in the summer:
â€œItâ€™s nice because people believe we can get big-name players, but we have just got to keep it real and not let people draw us down one-way streets.â€
â€œBut thereâ€™s no point parking players here who are squad players. A few people rang me and said they had really good squad players, but we have got enough squad players here.â€
Kevin has already talked with Newcastle owner Mike Ashley and chairman Chris Mort, and a list of the players Kevin wants at the club has been created in an attempt to land the three or four top-class players Kevin wants to bring in during the summer.
The process of attracting those men to the Tyneside club will be the responsibility of Executive Director of Football, Dennis Wise, Vice-President of Player Recruitment, Tony Jimenez and Recruitment Technical Director Jeff Vetere.
It looks like our trio got off to an unfortunate start with failing to convince the great Luka Modric to join the club, but there are other players available, who could really improve our squad.
â€œWe had a meeting a couple of weeks ago. We really put our two lists together because they have got a massive expertise in Europe.â€
â€œWhile we on our list have got all the top ones, they are looking at the ones who maybe you can get who will be the next top ones, but are younger.â€
â€œWhen we out them together, it was quite interesting.â€ â€œThatâ€™s it now. If someone asks me how we are getting on with our targets, I can honestly say, â€˜I donâ€™t knowâ€™ because I am not party to that.â€
â€œBut I will know the minute they are complete or have failed, I guess.â€
We know Kevin knows about Luka Modric now, because we failed with that specific target – unfortunately.
But it’s got to be upward and onward in the transfer window for Newcastle this summer.
