We will be linked with many players this summer so it’s going to be a little hard to single out which ones we are really after, but we’ll do our best.
Richard Dunne – definite target for Newcastle
The Manchester City captain Richard Dunne is again the name dominating the transfer news regarding Newcastle United. And with Sven Eriksson leaving Man City in the summer, it may be a chance for Newcastle to get Richard to the club.
It’s the Northern Echo that says Keegan is ready right now to go after Dunne, and we believe Newcastle have already officially put in a bid of Â£5M, which is a good price for City, given Richard’s contract is up next season.
Aiden McGeady, the Celtic winger, who was the Scottish Premier League’s player of the year, is also mentioned as a a target and apparently Sunderland are also said to be interested in the player.
McGeady is rated at Â£10M, which seems a little on the high side to us.
The Daily Mail also mentions PSG’s 18 year-old Mamadou Sakho, who is a left sided defender, as another target. We covered our interest in Mamadou recently.
That’s about it for today so nothing really new on the horizon.
