News today that Everton want £3M for 21 year-old striker James Vaughan that has alerted Premier league clubs like Stoke, Hull and Bolton, make it unlikely we’ll be able to capture.
James Vaughan – Newcastle bid in trouble
Although James could still want to come to Tyneside, because he’ll get his chance this season, that’s for sure, and help propel Newcastle back where we belong – to the Premier league.
What we’d like to see is for the club in these last two days to surprisingly sign some players outright – like Matthew Kilgallon of Sheffield United and Vaughan, along with bringing in some additional players on loan.
And then even announcing the club still intends to being in loan players and free agents before our next game at Cardiff in a couple of week time.
By the way why haven’t we signed Lovenkrands yet? Since he can play striker or winger, and those are two position we need to strengthen, why haven’t we snapped him up?
That could happen if it looks like the American group is close to doing a deal with Ashley and are willing to fork out the money to buy players – while they still can before January.
But leaving things until the last moment like this can come back and haunt the club – we sholuld remembr a certain Irishman named Murphy.
