There is news today that Wigan manager and local Newcastle lad Steve Bruce, would like to take Charles N’Zogbia to Wigan for Â£3.5M.
Charles N’Zogbia – going nowhere for Â£3.5M
For Â£3.5M, we’re sure a lot of Premier Clubs would like to take Charles off our hands, but there’s no chance N’Zogbia will move for that type of money.
There were positive signs from Charles that he may want to stay on Tyneside, and he said after the end of last season that he was happy at Newcastle. Whether he will still be at the club come August we just don’t know.
Certainly Kevin Keegan doesn’t want to lose the young Frenchman, and it would be in Charles’ interest to stay at Newcastle because Keegan will him a much better player.
Kevin has already made Newcastle into a much more attacking side than it ever would have been under Sam Allardyce, when Charles was used as a left-back most of the time.
Charles is a Keegan type of player because he is naturally attacking, and in the first half of the season he was probably Newcastle’s best player, before he was injured playing for the French Under-21 side.
It will take a lot more than Â£3.5M to take Charles to another club, but we hope he decides to stay at Newcastle United for his future football development.
