It seems other clubs are cherry picking our best players, and news tonight that Newcastle have received a decent offer for Irish winger Damien Duff, from a Premier League club.
Damien Duff – good offer received for him
So don’t be surprised if Duff joins the summer exodus out of St James’ Park.
Duff has always insisted that he wants to stay on Tyneside and finish his career with Newcastle, but this is now out of his hands, and if Newcastle decide to sell because the offer is good enough, Damien will be on his way.
With nobody in charge of the club who’s to stop the sale after all?
Chris Hughton said today:
“There will be a lot of talk about players leaving the club.”
“There are plenty of quality players here still and that always leads to speculation like that.”
Newly promoted Burnley were linked with Duff earlier in the summer but boss Owen Coyle dismissed the talk two months ago.
The fee is said to be £4M and if that’s true we would expect Damien to be moved out, probably before Saturday’s game. since that offer is very close to the £5M we paid Chelsea for the player 3 years ago.
It looks like owner Mike Ashley is willing to decimate the squad and sell players, with nobody controlling who can go and who will come in to rep-lace them. And this guy is supposed to be an intelligent businessman? W don’t think so.
It’s a disgraceful state of affairs at any football club, especially at Newcastle.
And notice we still have left the players we really would have liked to unload this summer. like Xisco, Geremi, Coloccini, Barton and Gutierrez.
