The News Of The World is reporting that Kevin Keegan is still interested in Aaron Lennon.
Aaron Lennon – could we get him for Â£6M?
Since it’s ther NOTW this could well be an old story regurgitated, but we still think Lennon would be a great player for Newcastle, if we can get him.
However, if Duff and N’Zogbia are to stay at Newcastle, which now seems likely, we’ll have a number of wide men in the squad, such as Duff, Milner, N’Zogbia, Gutierrez and Geremi to name just five.
Lennon could provide some speed down either wing however, although theÂ Â£6M price tag that is quoted, seems a little low.
The NOTW say that Newcastle United manager Kevin Keegan is on the verge of offering Â£6M for Aaron however, and it wouldn’t surprise us too much if he brings inÂ a couple more midfield players before the end of August.
And it’s that mystical and mysterious source close to Kevin that told The News of the World:
“Keegan is convinced he can capture Aaron Lennon and revitalise his career,”
“He is lightning fast with great skill and likes to bomb forward down the flanks.”
“That is the sort of player that Kevin Keegan loves and the boss is sure that he can get the very best out of Lennon again.”
Aaron Lennon would be a good deal at Â£6M, but we think it will take more than that to bring the lad to Tyneside.
However, it would be good if we can get him into the squad, that’s for sure.
What do you think?
