Aaron Spear Agrees To Join Newcastle


Sky Sports is reporting today that Newcastle United have finally won the race to sign Plymouth teenage star striker Aaron Spear.

Aaron Spear – has agreed to join Newcastle United

Spear is one of the most sought-after youngsters in the country, after giving some impressive displays in Plymouth’s youth teams last season, and quite a few Premier League teams were pursuing the youngster, including Arsenal, Portsmouth and Everton.

Aaron has been called the new Wayne Rooney, and it had seemed that Newcastle had almost tied the deal up a few weeks ago.

But Newcastle have now won the race after Dennis Wise, the Newcastle Executive Director, visited with Aaron and his parents in early June, along with Newcastle scout Lil Fuccillo.

After that meeting Aaron told the Newcastle officials he wanted to join the Tyneside club.

The club then invited Aaron and his mother to Newcastle to look around the place, and check out the facilities, and how Newcastle would be taking care of the boy.

Aaron’s mother, Caroline Spear, has confirmed the highly-rated youngster has agreed to join Newcastle after being impressed by what the club had to offer her son.

Caroline told Sky Sports:

“Aaron has agreed to join Newcastle and now we are waiting on the two clubs to agree a fee.”

“We spent a couple of days up in Newcastle and met with Dennis Wise and we were very impressed by what he had to offer.”

“A number of clubs had expressed an interest in Aaron, but he has decided he wants to go to Newcastle.”

“We are very proud of him and we are excited about his future at Newcastle.”

The deal will be concluded once the two clubs agree a fee for the 15 year-old striker.

This is good work by Dennis Wise, and now we need Dennis to be working closely with Kevin to bring in the older stars, which we’re sure the club will be doing in the near future.

Spear is currently on schoolboy terms, and the rules state the club are entitled to receive a fee, if the youngster moves to another club.

We have tracked the Spear deal for a number of weeks now, and were told by one of his close friends in Plymouth, that he definitely wanted to join Newcastle United, as his first choice.

Looks like that was the real deal.

This is good news for the club.

Comments welcome.

    Every top team do the same thing, ManU got new Totti, Liverpool got Viola, Arsenal got Ramsy and WE GOT SPEAR.

    Transfer windows will open in couple of days. Hope we can continue the good move. Enjoy 🙂
