Newcastle have again been linked with Tottenham pair Michael Dawson and Aaaron Lennon today in the Daily Mirror.
Michael Dawson and Aaron Lennon – double bid by Magpies?
We’d be very happy to see young Aaron Lennon at Newcastle, as we’ve reported over the last couple of days, but we’re not so sure about Michael Dawson.
He fits the blueprint of players Ashley wants at the club,Â being just 24 years old and having appeared over 100 times for the London club.
But the 6’2″ defender is still prone to errors, and certainly didn’t have a good game at St. James’ Park on October 22nd last year, when we beat Tottenham 3-1, in what turned out to be the last game in charge for manager Martin Jol.
The defender is said to be happy at Spurs but could be further pushed down the pecking order, if Juande Ramos’ transfer ventures are successful in the summer.
Newcastle and Keegan will try to sign young players this summer and both Dawson, 24, and Lennon, 21, have the added advantage of considerable Premier League experience.
Kevin was back at his desk yesterday, and no doubt will have been brought up to date on the situation with our transfer dealings and contract negotiations.
We were hoping for an interview yesterday, but all was quiet, but maybe Kevin will talk today to the press, so we can better gauge what’s going on.
