Kevin Keegan has once again said he hopes to bring in four or five top quality players during the summer.
Kevin Keegan – who’s after Modric on the list?
Newcastle have been linked with many names this week and will no doubt be linked with almost every good football player available this summer.
Just before Kevinâ€™s pre-match conference ahead of the Chelsea game on Monday Kevin was asked if he was any closer to bringing any new players to the club.
Kevin in jovial mood joked:
“Yeah, here they are,” “This one, he’s a player, he’s terrific, watch out for him.â€“But this one (pointing to his other side), I’m not too sure about, I’m taking a chance with him!â€
Then Kevin was asked if he was disappointed to miss out to Tottenham on midfield Croation target Luka Modric, Keegan said:
“We are not going to get all the shells on the beach.â€
“Modric is a player that most of the top teams in Europe would have liked and good luck to Spurs if they’ve got him.â€
“Now we have to go and look at our list and see who else is on there that we would like.â€
“I’d like to bring in four or five, but the first you’ll know about them is when we have got them here and signed for the club.”
Certainly Kevin seems to be not too disappointed at missing out on Modric, but if he was he surely wouldn’t let it be known to the press either.
And that’s the way we’d like the club to conduct their business in the summer, quietly, but Newcastle fans are just waiting to be surprised by Newcastle announcing one or two excellent signings for the club.
We are all very willing to be happily surprised by some of the players Kevin and the recruitment team, along with Chairman Chris Mort, can bring to the club this summer.
But only top players need apply – as we already have an excellent squad of players and Kevin has already brought the very best out of them.
