Damien Duff is attracting attention in the transfer market, and it appears that Burnley are the latest Premier side showing interest in the Irish winger (or full-back).
Damien Duff – attracting interest in transfer market
Duff said he would want to stay at the club, immediately following relegation but since then Ashley has put the club in jail, and nothing has been done.
And amazingly the Tyneside club has been without a manager since May 24th, the day the club was relegated.
But Duff said in the aftermath of relegation. following the Aston Villa terminal defeat:
“I’m as loyal as they come, whether the gaffer stays or goes.” “I’d love to try to get us back up.”
“I’ve loved working with him (Shearer).” “It’s been a proper football club for eight weeks, and it’s about time.”
“It’s just disappointing that we couldn’t stay up for him and the fans.” “I think he’s been brilliant, even though we haven’t got the results to keep us up.”
“It’s the first time in a long while that this place has felt like a proper football club.”
“Things are done right, and it’s been a breath of fresh air. If there’s one man to get us back up, it’s him.”
And of course Giovanni Trapattoni, Ireland’s 70 year-old manager, has said players remain great wherever they play, and he classed Duff as a great player.
So if he stays at Newcastle United, Damien will have little danger of losing his position in the Irish team, that’s for sure.
We’d like to see Duff stay on Tyneside.
