We had reported on Haris Vuckic being signed by Newcastle United only a couple of days ago, and that was only according to Sky Sports, but since then many of our readers in Slovenia have confirmed that the Slovenian First Division side NK Domzale has put the news on their web-site that indeed their top midfielder Haris Vuckic has signed for Newcastle United.
Haris Vuckic – 16 year old 6’3″ old midfielder – and he’s still growing 😀
And it seems the deal is initially for the 16 year-old midfielder to sign up for an initial six months, with the option of a further three years if he still looks the part.
Haris has also now completed the medical and the gifted teenager is rated as one of Europe’s brightest young talents, and reports suggest he underwent a recent trial at AC Milan.
This signing, along with Brazilian Cai Ferreira and possibly Andras Gosztonyi – an 18 year old Hungarian midfielder who is on a week’s trial this week, shows out youth policy seems to be in full swing.
And yes, we know some fans are saying great – we’ll be good in 4 years time, and it’s true we must strengthen right now with first team players – nevertheless we now have a strategy that seems to be working quite well.
The hope is that these players, like Carroll, Kadar, LuaLua, Krul and Tozer right now, can come through into the first team squad, and we’ll have a very good supply of good players. and not have to spend £110M on one player, like certain clubs seem anxious to do – what a complete waste of good money that is.
As you may have noticed, we are not admirers of teams who go out and pay silly money for players, simply because we don’t think it is good for the long term health of world football – that’s the reason. There’s just something not right about it.
