Aaron Lennon Available To Newcastle for £10M

The People newspaper reported yesterday that Tottenham Hotspur will let winger Aaron Lennon leave the club, but only for a £10M price-tag.


Aaron Lennon – available for £10M

Lennon, 21, is said to be one of Kevin Keegan’s top targets this summer, and he fits perfectly the profile of players Newcastle are looking for this season.

He’s young, has Premier League experience and he’s an exciting speedy player.

He’s played 82 times for Tottenham, since joining them from his home town team, Leeds United in 2005, and has played 9 times for England since 2006.

It looks like Newcastle will bid for the player, but they were hoping to pay about £6M for the winger a week or so ago, so they may need to raise their price a little.

Tottenham  sources say he is not on the list of players manager Juande Ramos necessarily wants to unload in the summer, but that’s just talk they will not let him go on the cheap – and we don’t blame them, because Aaron is still an excellent player.

We think he’s be a good buy if we can get for him for around £8M.

What do you think?

Comments welcome.

    £10,ooo,ooo is a lot of money, but I really rate this lad.

    I would be delighted if we signed him, but for £10m I don’t think it’s sensible. Time will tell on this one.

    Yes good player, yes exciting to watch but £10m? eh no! if we’re dropping £10m on a right winger then it has to be SWP! much more creative than Lennon & can score more goals! anyway if we can spend £10m on him why not did £10-15m for Quasmera! much better player than both english options! or joaquin! how class was iniesta last nite? would love him in toon shirt but will never happen!

    We should only pay about £6-8m for Lennon, I don’t think he’s worth any more than that, but he’d still be a good signing. Also this is the new Premier League football for next season: http://www.football-shirts.co.uk/fans/nike-200809-premier-league-ball_1301

    On Setanta Sports News it sais that we are interested in Carlos Marchena of Valencia and Spain. I hope we are, he was very good in the euros.

    If Kev is interested in Lennon i can understand Spurs wanting to get the most for a very promising English international. I agree with Ed that a price may well be some where between 6 and 10 million.

    Just my opinion but i dont think Arda was that much better than what Lennon has showed in the past and they are both of a similar age.

    The Spanish defender looked great in the Euros and was far and away their best defender in the tournaments best defence.

    Lennon will be lucky to get on the bench at Spurs this season. He struggled to get a game last season and they’re expanding their squad even further.
    The Spurs fans would love it if we payed £10m for him. I wouldn’t pay much more than half that tbh!

    4-5 mil tops for me! I think the money could be better spent else where…… Larrson would be better value at 3.5 IMO…..

    Come on….£10m for lennon, this is getting beyond a joke!!!

    With regards to Lennon, yes he’s fast but he’s got little more than that….it used to be that £10m wouldve got you a proven international quality midfielder/winger, Not someone who is out of favour at his current club…has only a handful of international caps…. and doesnt get many goals…sorry im starting to rant now ffs spend £4.5m on larsson and forget about lennon!!!

    6 million would be ideal, 8 million at the very most. As someone already said, we could get Derdiyok and Larsson for 10 million, and I’m pretty sure I’d prefer them…

    Would rather take on SWP for that price! he’s good, but not 10mil good. maybe in a few seasons he will be worth that, but not just yet!

    then again, look at what we where all insisting on recieving for Milner! simillar age are they not, same position, so is 10mil out of the question, or is it just cause they both English…

    10 MILL is about right for lennon. He wont want to join you lot though. spurs are building a great team and i cant imagine him givng that up to join a team who havent won a trophy since the50s.

    you could be right about their nationality mate, it just goes to show how much it might cost if pratini’s 6 plus 5 rule came in, doesn’t it?..

    …It could end with people selling their kids to football teams…Wonder how that GREAT idea would go down with european law?..Don’t think pratini’s thought this one thru?..

    10 mil for lennon is a ridiculous price.
    i’d take him at the club but i wouldnt be overly excited, and i would definitly not pay 10 million for him.
    his price tag is that high because he’s english.

    We need centre-half, left-back, central midfielder (attacking and defensive) and a centre-forward as Viduka is rarely fit and too static even when he is.

    If you can seriously expect to get that lot ( and we need quality in all the central positions, not just ‘cover’), and still have 10mil to fling at Spurs for a player they picked up for 1.5 million and when we’ve just sorted out Milner, then ‘Good Luck!’. You’re only helping fund their Modric deal. If Lennon isn’t happy, as reported, let them drop their price.
    And he runs like wor lass.

    “10 million is way too much”

    is that not exactly wot liverpool fans were saying last week about milner being priced at 9m

    just getting back wot we were dishing out

    He has been poor and is not in Ramos’s plan’s so hes trying to be a cheaky twat for 10 million hes worth around half that.

    They must be kidding. The only reason I could see for us asking for £10m for Milner was because we actually wanted to keep him and the price was to put bidders off because hes not worth that yet.

    If Ramos really thinks Lennon is of no use to his squad then he’s going to have to knock at least £3m off that price. Personally I wouldn’t pay more than £6. £6.5 at a push.

    wouldnt be a bad signing imo cos we need to inject pace into the squad. however we need centre mids first of all probably 2 or 3 if we hopefully get rid of barton. also agree 10m maybe bit high but id take him for bowt 7m good competition for milner.

    scottish mag-i’d say 9 million for milner is a ridiculous price also. i genuinly beleive theyre just being given tags like that because they’re english youths.
    obviously if we got 9 mil for milner i’d find it hard to turn down, but i wouldnt want to spend that and more, on replacing him with lennon.

    Aye, if liverpoo want one of our players, that we don’t wanna sell, then £9/10m is about right…But if spuds want shot of a player they don’t want, then £6/7.5 at most!..

    I like him, but 10 mil is quite alot. Im sure we can sign him for lesser. Unless Ramos wants to let him warm the bench.

    what’s with this SWP lovefest. he’s the worst productive player i’ve ever seen. he constantly had poor touch and too often made poor decisions. he would always get cheap goals probably due to the quality around him. lennon beat out SWP last world cup and is much more of a threat to opposing teams when his speed is utilized. i’ll take lennon over SWP and a lifetime supply of beer any day. and i really love beer.

    10mil is a lot for lennon 6.5mil tops. Would be a great buy fast and skillfull but so is James Milner if we got lennon then that would mean good competition between the two ,but a would let milner go for 12 – 15mil anything less than 10mil newcastle r ripping themselves.
