Sky Sports are reporting that QPR’s Fitz Hall could be set to leave Queens Park Rangers this month, and would you believe they think Newcatsle United are favorites to sign him.
Fitz Hall – is this player good enough for Newcastle?
Fitz Benjamin Hall is a recently turned 29-year-old, who saynds 6’4″ and joined QPR two years ago, but now could be ready to move on from Loftus Road.
Looking at out archives, we were said to be interested in three QPR players last summer – Fitz Hall, Damien Delaney, and striker Dexter Blackstock.
Interestingly, we liked Delaney and Blackstock but not Fitz Hall, and we still think that way – is this player the right player to be signing at the club right now?
Of course we have already signed a solid-looking 6’4″ center-back in Mike Williamson today, but it could be that Chris Hughton wants further defensive reinforcements.
If the club is really interested in him. it may help that his former QPR team-mate, Wayne Routledge is now at St James’ Park, and he would certainly give the club a high recommendation to Fitz.
Here’s the information we have on Hall:
Fitz Hall is a 6?4? defender and signed a four-and-a-half year deal with Rangers at the start of the 2008 January transfer window. He has been at Oldham, Southampton, Crystal Palace and Wigan Athletic before joining QPR.
He made only 15 appearances in all competitions for QPR in the 2008-2009 season and in total has appeared 48 times for QPR, with 2 goals.
One reason we didn’t think he was good enough last summer, was that former Newcastle player Peter Ramage played over 30 times for QPR last season, and the Newcastle club had let Peter leave, basically because he couldn’t hold down a first team place.
This season Hall has started 12 games and been a substitute twice.
We cannot say we’re that keen on the player, if we were to be completely honest.
What do you think?
