Chris Hughton had had some good feedback from Habib Beye about his colleague Marlon Harewood at Aston Villa.
Marlon Harewood – would be good loan signing for Magpies
Beye told the Evening Chronicle today:
“Marlon is looking really fit and ready to go.” “He needs to play first-team football and Newcastle is the ideal place for him to do it.”
“He’s an excellent character, one who I think can fit in well at Newcastle.”
“I wish him all the best.” “Hopefully he can help Newcastle get back to where they belong.”
Those are good words from Habib, who was a great favorite with the Newcastle fans and he and Seb Bassong were the two major players we were sorry to see leave the club in the summer.
Habib of course was also a terrific player.
They were the two Players of the Season for Newcastle over the last two years, and they both achieved the honor in their very first seasons on Tyneside.
But Newcastle did a good deal to get Danny Simpson on loan from the Red Devils, and as long as Danny remains on Tyneside, it wll soften the blow for the loss of Beye.
