News yesterday that Valencia want to offer their big striker, Zigic, in part exchange for Newcastle’s Jose Enrique.
Jose Enrique – good up and coming player
Newcastle United have been invited to bid for Valencia center forward and Serbian International, Nikola Zigic.
The Daily Star reported yesterday that Valencia want to take the highly-rated Newcastle left full-back Jose Enrique back to Spain.
They are trying to use their 27 year old striker Nikola Zigic, who is over 6’7″ tall, as bait.
But Jose is a good player, and it’s unlikely that Newcastle will want to part with their Â£6.2M signing from Villareal last summer.
In fact, once Jose got a regular game at the club under Kevin Keegan, there was definite improvement in his overall play.
Jose still has a lot to learn, there’s no doubt about that, but he has a good attitude and is only too willing to learn at Newcastle.
He certainly has good basic skills, and can turn into a first-class player at Newcastle.
He appeared 28 times in his first season at Newcastle, with 23 starts, and he looked what he is – a good looking youngster who will only get better paying at Newcastle.
He’s got 3 caps for the Spanish Under-21 side so far, and he’s tipped to play for the full Spanish side in the future.
We want to keep Jose at the club, and don’t expect Newcastle to even thinking of selling the 22 year-old, who is certainly one for the future.
