With Chelsea not having any manager right now, following the sacking of Avram Grant, it will be difficult for Newcastle to make progress with one of their transfer targets, Shawn Wright-Phillips.
Shaun Wright-Phillips – wants to leave Chelsea?
It now seems clear today that indeed Kevin Keegan is interested in bringing Shaun Wright-Phillips to Tyneside, and revitalize his career, which has gone stale during the last half of the season at Chelsea.
The Greenwich-born winger moved to Chelsea 3 seasons ago for around Â£22M, from Manchester City, but has been unable to nail down a first team place continually, and indeed in 3 seasons he has only appeared for Chelsea 81 times, the majority of those being as a substitute, so his playing time has not be great.
It would appear that Newcastle will need to wait for the new manager being appointed, and as one can imagine, lots of names are being mentioned as possible new managers at the top London club.
Of course, there is always the chance too, that the new manager will not want to let Shawn Wright-Phillips leave the club, although it would appear that those at the club think he is dispensable, and we think Shawn also wants away from Chelsea.
The 26 year old talented winger could do a lot worse than come to Newcastle and play for Kevin Keegan again.
