The Evening Chronicle are reporting today that Aaron Lennon would be keen on a move to Newcastle United.
Aaron Lennon – no approach yet from Newcastle
England winger Aaron Lennon is reported to be ready to jump at the chance to join Newcastle United â€“ but only if Tottenham Hotspur are willing to sell him.
Aaron was born in Leeds, and seems to be willing to move north again, where at least he’ll be close to his family.
And after all, the boy is just 21, younger than Steven Taylor, James Milner or Charles N’Zogbia, so all his good years should be ahead of him.
Lennon seems to have done a lot in football for one still so young, and of course he shouldÂ improve as he gets older, especially with Kevin Keegan coaching him.
It is understood that KevinÂ is keen on the player, as well as Newcastle’s recruitment executives, Dennis Wise and Tony Jimenez.
London agent Leon Angel represents both Aaron Lennon as well as our own Steven Taylor, and while talks have taken place about Steven’s new contract, no talks have yet taken place over Lennon.
Spurs are being linked with Blackburnâ€™s England right- winger David Bentley, who is rated at around Â£15M, and if they are successful they are likely to be selling Lennon.
But quite honestly, we think Lennon is a much better buy at around Â£6M, or even more, and he’s the type of player that Kevin can improve.
Aaron is quick and direct and we can just see him now racing down the right wing on a Newcastle counter-attack – against Spurs.Â 😀
We’d like to see Aaron join Newcastle – he can be a very good player for us – and he fits the player blueprint of owner Mike Ashley almost perfectly.
