Some good news for Newcastle today following the People’s report yesterday that Plymouth’s teenage star Aaron Spear is set to join Newcastle United later this week.
Dennis Wise – has persuaded Aaron Spear to join Newcastle
Dennis Wise traveled to Devon with Newcastle scout Lil Fuccillo recently for a three-hour meeting with the 15-year-old striker and his parents, and the youngster is ready to say yes to the Newcastle club later this week.
This is said to be a massive coup for Wise and Newcastle United, and Dennis sold the club to Spear and his family despite interest from Arsenal, Tottenham and Portsmouth.
Spear was a regular for the Plymouth Argyle under-16s this season, and also a key player for Plymouth Schools in their challenge for the ESFA Under-15 Inter Association Trophy.
Aaron SpearÂ – 15 year-old whiz kid
Spear was all set to play for Argyle Reserves last season but there is a rule that players have to be aged 15 or over to play senior football, so that plan had to be scrapped, until the player reached 15.
Spear is being dubbed the â€œNew Wayne Rooneyâ€, as was Arsenalâ€™s January signing Luke Freeman, whom Newcastle were also interested in.
Spear is in the middle of a country battle at the moment.
The Scottish international team have already asked him to play for them because he has a Scottish grandmother, but England also want the young prospect to represent them.
Newcastle are said to be ready pay over Â£1M for the player, based on installments that would map his progress at Newcastle.
As well as playing like Wayne Rooney, apparently Aaron also looks a little like Wayne.
