Look for Newcastle to announce in the next day or two they are signing Aston Villa striker Marlon Harewood on a three-month loan.
Marlon Harewood – 3 month loan to Newcastle?
Newcastle seem to have been after a few strikers and our est choice would have probably been Senegal striker Kamara from Fulham, who apparently was more than willing to come to Tyneside, but Fulham need him – at least while they are still in Europe.
And the news is the Tyneside club may renew their interest in January with this player.
Newcastle were also linked with younger players 21 year-old James Vaughan of Everton, who signed a loan deal with Derby County last week, and also previous Newcastle target 19 year old Sam Vokes – now at Wolves.
But we already have young strikers Carroll and Ranger, who have both looked very good in the last two games, and bringing in another young striker, doesn’t seems to make much sense.
30 year-old Harewood has started just one Premier League game for Villa since his £4M move from West Ham in 2007, and he will become a short term replacement for Shola Ameobi who is sidelined with a stress fracture of a foot.
We expect Harweood to be announced before the Carling Cup tie at Peterborough on Tuesday night.
