News today on the Tottenham Hotspur Blog, that Newcastle United are in talks with Spurs right back Pascal Chimbonda.
Pascal Chimbonda – reported to be in talks with Newcastle
Spurs right-back, Pascal Chimbonda, is said to be close to a Â£6M move to Newcastle United, on the Tottenham Hotspur blog.
Now bfore Newcastle fans faint, or have a heart attack, let’s quickly point out that only last Tuesday, Pascal’s agent, Willie McKay, said Spurs would be looking for around Â£2M for the player they bought from Wigan two years ago for Â£4.5M.
On 10th June, Willie McKay, Chimbonda’s agent told Sky Sports:
“I expect Pascal to leave Tottenham this summer,”
“I am speaking to several clubs with the consent of Tottenham and Pascal hopes to get his future sorted soon.”
“I believe Tottenham will be looking in the region of Â£2M from interested clubs.”
The blog says that Spurs have accepted the bid – it cannot possibly be for Â£6M, we’re not that daft – and the player is in talks with the Newcastle club regarding personal terms.
The blog is also reporting that if all goes as planned, Chimbonda should be a Newcastle United player soon.
We have no idea if there is any truth in this report, but it wouldn’t be a surprise if we have bid Â£2M and had the offer accepted by Spurs.
We quite like Chimbonda, and think he would be good at Newcastle.
However, we also know from comments on this site, that he wouldn’t necessarily be a popular acquisition for the club, as far as the Newcastle faithful are concerned.
But he seems like a Kevin Keegan player, who can attack down the wing, and for Â£2M we think he would be a decent buy for the club.
He can also play in either full back slot – anyway, that’s what we think.
Let’s know what your thoughts are on this potential deal, but please keep it clean for the youngsters. 😀
