Charles N’Zogbia could be just the first of a number of players who may elect to leave Newcastle in the January transfer window or this summer.
Charles N’Zogbia – may want to move to Paris St. Germain
That will be even more true if the club doesn’t get the ownership situation sorted out soon, and instill some long-term stability at the club. At the moment we have absolutely none, with no leadership whatsoever being shown above Joe Kinnear.
French Under-21 International Charles told the Sunday Sun today:
“My agent is in regular contact with Paris,” “It could be as good a deal for me as it is for them.” “I am still under contract with Newcastle, but this would be a good progression for my career.”
“Newcastle know that I am looking for more playing time. If a transfer can be done, all the better.” “I am 22-years-old. I want to play.”
“I must soon meet the leaders of Newcastle to take stock.” “Paris’s interest flatters me. As a boy, I dreamed of playing for them. I always have.”
There was news last week that both Bayern Munich and Burrusia Dortmund are interested in the young Frenchman, who is too good to be warming the bench at Newcastle United.
And Charles will have a hard job meeting with the leaders of the club any time soon, we don’t have any, with Ashley still trying to sell the club.
But that sale is now looking increasing unlikely, at least in the short term, since apparently the two American Consortiums interested in buying Newcastle are nowhere near the Newcastle valuation figure.
Charles needs some starts at the club, and giving him a try-out in place of Damien Duff wouldn’t be bad, since there’s not much to choose between the two players.
We want to bring players in, not lose some of our best players in January.
