We wouldn’t be surprisedÂ if Danny Guthrie becomes Newcastle’s second transfer of the season.
Â Danny Guthrie – soon to be Keegan’s second signing
The Newcastle official site is reporting the young Liverpool midfielder will be undergoing a medical, and if that goes well, we expect the youngster to sign on the dotted line, and become a Newcastle player.
The initial reaction of readers on our site seems to be one of slight disappointment at the news, but we think Danny will be a good signing, and he’s really one for the future.
He’s also English, in case FIFA President Sepp Blatter is successful in getting his 6 plus 5 scheme approved, where we’d need to start 6 English players, and be limited to fielding only 5 foreigners in any game.
The news being reported on several news sources this afternoon is that Danny is on Tynesdie right now, undergoing his medical with Newcastle United, and that wouldn’t surprise us.
Maybe the signing will be formally announced tomorrow, and we would be fine with the deal.
Guthrie will certainly not have any lack of confidence playing for Kevin Keegan, and he must be looking forward to playing for theÂ ever positive manager, who can be such an inspiration to any youngster pulling on the famous black and white shirt of Newcastle.
We read some of Kevin’s comments he made last season, and we were even looking for our boots.Â 😀
As weÂ indicated earlier today, we don’t think Danny is expected to walk straight into the first team, but here’s yet another top young player, who will now end up on Tyneside.
We often wonder if Mike Ashley was a fan of the Busby Babes of the late 1950s, because we seem to be headed in that direction, don’t we?
