News today that the Newcastle up front bid of Â£150K for 15 year-old striker Aaron Spear, from Plymouth Argyle, has not been accepted by the south coast club.
Aaron Spear – has set his heart on joining Newcastle United
Aaron is in demand from a number of clubs and has been called the new Wayne Rooney, and it had seemed that Newcastle had almost tied the deal up last week.
However, the good news seems to be that the 15-year-old whiz-kid wants to join Newcastle United, after having talks with Newcastle Football Director Dennis Wise, but the Devon club think they should be given more money up front.
We think that Spear’s move will still go through – and Newcastle have told Plymouth they are also willing to pay additional installments, on top of the initial Â£150K for the player.
But it seems that Plymouth would like more up-front money, even it means reducing some of the installment payments in the future. That’s not too surprising since the Championship side could probably use the money right now, rather than have to wait.
Newcastle are not the only club after the youngster however, and both Portsmouth and Arsenal are also reported to be very interested in Spear, but it looks like Aaron has already made his mind up that Newcastle is the club he wants to join.
The news is that he’s set his heart on moving to Newcastle and the north east, and it seems that Wise was very persuasive in his meeting with the player and his parents recently.
Dennis traveled to Devon with Newcastle scout Lil Fuccillo a week ago, for a three-hour meeting with the 15-year-old striker and his parents, and the youngster was ready to say yes to the Newcastle club after that meeting.
That’s really good to hear – so Newcastle, let’s sign the lad – and it could be a great capture for the future.
