Not too much news today on the transfer although thereâ€™s another report that Kevin Keegan is indeed interested in Barcelonaâ€™s Deco.
Eren Derdiyok - he’s the number 9 in the air
We think Deco may want to move to the Premier league and we also believe he would be a good buy for the club. But whether we could attract a player of Deco’s ability to Tyneside remains to be seen – but he could do a job at Newcastle for at least the next 3 seasons.
Another interesting story today is that 19 year-old 6â€™3â€ Swiss striker Eren Derdiyok of Swiss club FC Basle wants to join Newcastle. He seems to be able to score goals too, having scored 10 goals this season for his club in 23 outings.
Eren Derdiyok has spoken of his desire to play in the Premier League alongside Michael Owen at Newcastle, and he’s already a full Swiss International, having scored against England in February.
So thatâ€™s some good publicity for the club and we think Kevin should at least check out the youngster.
Also some news late yesterday that Newcastle may be interested in speedy winger Joaquin of Valencia, but weâ€™re not too sure if thatâ€™s an old story, just being regurgitated.
However, we think heâ€™s the type of player who would interest Kevin Keegan so there may be some truth in it.
Comments always welcome.
