Newcastle Still Fishing For Perch


It appears that Newcastle manager Chris Hughton has not given up hope of signing Nottingham Forest midfielder James Perch.

James Perch – Hughton still interested

Newcastle were reported to have lodged an initial bid for the 24-year-old earlier this week, but that seemed to have been turned down flat by Nottingham Forest and manager Billy Davies called the bid derisory.

We’d be very surprised if Forest agreed to let one of their better players move to promotion rivals Newcastle, since they shouldn’t be in the business of  strengthening their competitors this January – but you never know.

It looks like Hughton still has hopes of landing the 5’11” player, and we have to believe Newcastle have made an improved offer for the versatile midfielder.

The Newcastle manager told Sky Sports News this afternoon:

“The situation with that is the club have made an official offer for him,”

“It was done through the correct channels and we will see what happens.”

We will indeed have to see what happens on this one, but we are not holding our breath.

Comments welcome.

    There’s obviously a reason Johnson doesnt play and nobody ever seems to come in for him. Maybe the Alcholic rumours are true?

    Not sure about WIlliamson we will have to see how he does, he might be a good short term buy and used till the end of the season as he is prover Championship quality although I would rather get him on loan with the option to buy as I am dubious as to whether he is of Premier League quality although we have to get out of this league first so I shouldn’t really complain!

    roy cropper dont be fooled by this mug that calls himself after me there is only 1 moondust.
    so the imposter needs to be banned as i see he has been abusing fellow bloggers but thats because he doesnt have the guts to abuse under his own name.

    Sod off Roy, get a life and step away from the computer, eh?

    Wouldn’t mind getting perch, in if I’m honest. Decent player with a decent future ahead of him. Of course he won’t cut it in the prem but we aren’t in the prem yet, so we shouldn’t be concerning ourselves with that right now. Let’s just look to the next game, eh?

    batty i know all about your son you must be very proud. and i know you never grassed on rodzilla, but i thought i would teach you a lesson, as you needed reeled in a bit. a bit of banter is brilliant but you just need to know where to draw the line. being an imposter is over the line
