The gossip papers may take regular swipes at Newcastle United and Kevin Keegan, but it seems to us lots of players wax lyrical about Kevin and the Tyneside club.
PSG’s Amara Diane – would love to play for Newcastle United
One player in that category is one of our targets Amara Diane.
Sky Sports is today reporting that Paris Saint Germain star Amara Diane says he would jump at the chance to join Newcastle United.
The Ivory Coast star has been checked out personally by Kevin Keegan last Saturday night, and he may well be a target for the club.
The 25-year-old forward talked to Sky Sports today:
“Kevin Keegan is a dream coach, his team always plays offensive football and playing in England would be a great opportunity,”
“I know there is some contact between the two clubs and if an agreement is reached, I will go to Newcastle.”
“To play with Michael Owen would be great and there is also Obafemi Martins who is a top striker.”
“The Premier League is attractive and some of my Ivorian friends are there so I would be in good company.”
It’s nice to hear that from our targets – and don’t believe all you hear about players not wanting to come to bonny Newcastle and play for Kevin Keegan.
Amara has played 44 times for PSG since 2006 and scored 7 goals.
Diane is thought to be one of the hottest prospects in Ivory Coast football, and has been dubbed ‘The New Drogba’.
