There are persistent media reports that Tottenham Hotspur central defender Anthony Gardner could be heading to Newcastle United.
Anthony Garner – is he good enough for Newcastle United?
The 27-year-old has found his opportunities at White Hart Lane somewhat restricted since joining the club from Port Vale in 2000.
He was was loaned out to Everton only last January, but didn’t make a single appearance for the Liverpool-based club.
Gardner has just one full England cap following his substitute appearance against Sweden in March 2004, but since the arrival of new manager Juande Ramos, he now looks ready to move on from the London club.
Gardner is 6’5″ tall, has played a total of 114 games for Spurs with two goals, and was born in Stafford, in September of 1980.
He looks a decent enough player, but does not have a very good injury record in his time in London.
But if he isn’t good enough to get into the Tottenham or Everton teams, is he what we want at Newcastle this summer?
We don’t think so.
What do you think?
