There are reports coming from Sky Sports today, that Newcastle are interested in a 20 year-old Czech defender.
Marek Suchy – 20 year old Czech would seem a good acquisition
The player is 20 year old Marek SuchÃ½, who was born in Prague, in 1988.
He currently plays for Gambrinus liga club Slavia Prague, and whileÂ primarily a center-back, the youngster can also play in midfield. The Gambrinus Liga is the top league in the Czech Republic.
SuchÃ½ turned 20 in March,Â and has played for Slavia’s first team since 2005, and he was a star for the Czech side that was defeated by Argentina in the final of the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Canada.
The annual Golden Ball awards named him the promising young player in 2006 and SuchÃ½ has recently been pursued by Everton and Scottish giants Glasgow Rangers. Why do we immediately think of David Beckham?.Â Â 😀
The defender is said to be valued at around Â£2.5M, and before Newcastle entered the fray, Suchy had indicated that Glasgow Rangers were his preferred destination.
Suchy told Deniksport today:
“The possibility of leaving is still there,”
“On Monday I spoke with Mr Vandas and he told me the interest is still there.”
“But Slavia have not received a specific offer. That’s the problem.”
Pavel Vandas is Suchy’s agent.
The player was then asked if Everton and Rangers were leading the chase for his signature, and the youngster replied:
“No, also other clubs from the Premier League – Newcastle and Aston Villa.”
Looks like the player could well be a good acquisition for Newcastle, and the transfer amount looks reasonable, but he’d be one for the future, and would hardly walk into the first team.
However, we don’t know if his agent isÂ trying to stir up some additional interest at Aston Villa and Newcastle, since Rangers and Everton have been interested in the youngster for a while, although no bid has yet been lodged.
