Newcastle Reported In For Coventry Left Back


There is news today coming out of Sky Sports that Newcastle are in for Coventry City’s 22 years old left back.

Daniel Fox – 6’1″ Coventry City left-back

Newcastle United Football Club were linked with a £2M bid for 22 year old Coventry City left back Daniel Fox around 13th January, and it may well be we have gone back in for the player.

As the transfer window nears closure, it crystallizes for clubs who’s really available and who’s not, which is one of the reasons so many players are signed late in the window. Of course procrastination is also involved.

So this news from Sky Sports may be on the mark, because we’ve reviewed this player before, and he looks a very good young player, and probably available, but he’s worth a lot more than £2M, according to some Coventry fans, who left comments on our site.

The Coventry City defender Fox learned his trade at the Everton Youth Academy, but the closest he came to a first-team appearance was as an 18-year-old being named on the bench.

He was released by Everton in the summer of 2005 and he moved to Walsall, where he played around 100 times before moving to Coventry City last January.

It appears that Joe Kinnear rates him highly, as a star of the future and hopes to land the player for just £2M, although as we’ve said we may have to bid higher than that, to capture the youngster.

The Winsford-born Fox has already been called up for the England Under-21 side for the match against Poland on March 25th last year and started that game.

Last January, the attack-minded left-back signed a three-and-a-half year deal at the Ricoh Arena, but he would no doubt jump at the chance of joining Newcastle United.

Comments welcome.

    Kash – my mate from Coventry says he’d want a lot more money than £2 million for Fox but says they wouldn’t blame him for leaving and going to one of the biggest premiership teams.

    Our reputation mustn’t be that bad then!

    This player seems a good bet. We need cover in that position too. Things seem to be looking up now at last. Get your finger out Ashley – no more frustrating let downs please. Pumped up your pram tyres yet Zog?

    I think buying players from lower english divisons is a great idea they will fight for the opportunity…hopefully.

    He’s a very good left back. I live in Rugby and usually pop up to the Ricoh Arena to watch a few games.

    He’s quick strong and can take a cracking free kick so Fox and Taylor taking freekicks would be awesome!!!

    Ed-it was just the fella who deals with all transfers, who merely mentioned his name and ours. I’m sure you’ve repored on this lad before? a few weeks back, i think it was just the lad on sky sports digging up the two names from back then if im honest. He did say however that he was confident we’d be ryan taylors destination. He said teams like blackburn were in for him, but that we would be his most likely move.

    I work at the Ricoh arena, i’ll find out if there is any truth in this matter. We had Nigel Clough, George Burley and Roy Hodgson here for the Cardiff game. This Hodgson was looking at Ledley.

    Danny Fox is pretty good but is all left foot. Good set piece delivery though and a hard worker. One of Coventry’s better players!

    Ledley looked pretty average the other day. 2 players stuck out though, Jay Bothroyd and a lad called Parry, both with Cardiff. Bothroyd was good but a bit lazy apparently.

    All left foot isn’t really a problem for a LB.

    I saw a bit of him last weekend working a chance from which he was unlucky not to score. He got into the box, sold a nice shimmy to the defender and hit a good shot which was heading into the very corner of the far post. Unfortunately someone managed to get back and just about kept it out.

    Alright the opposition wasn’t the highest of quality but he had the confidence and ability to work that space.

    I’m not doubting that a left foot is good for an LB, i just feel when he gets pressured too much there just seems to be a complete inability to use his right. I have to attend most match days for work and get to see a lot of the players and Danny Fox is without doubt one of the best along with Mifsud who would be a useful impact sub.
