There is an important meeting today in London, as we know, between Mike Ashley and Kevin Keegan, but there’s also another important meeting taking place in the capital today that will interest Newcastle fans.
Steven Taylor – contract talks start today
That’s a meeting that will also have an impact on Newcastle’s future success.
Tony Jimenez will be meeting with Steven Taylorâ€™s new agent Leon Angel, and start negotiations to complete a new contract for Steven, that will hopefully see him stay at Newcastle for at least another four or even five years.
Until now Steven’s father Alf has handled the negotiations, but we feel it was a good decision that they let a professional handle the negotiations, and we already know Steven is very keen, to say the least, to stay at Newcastle United and play under Kevin Keegan.
This is good news, and it looks like the club are acting on Keegan’s request to secure, on long term contracts, the very good players he wants to stay at the club.
Michael Owen is of course another player we’ll be keeping, along with Steven Harper.
