Victor Moses The Type Of Creative Player Newcastle Need

Well would you believe it – Newcastle have reportedly put in a bid for Crystal Palace winger Victor Moses.

Victor Moses – Newcastle in for the 19 year-old

The Evening Chronicle is reporting this, and there’s a couple of things to say about the situation  – one is that Newcastle could get a good deal for the youngster, and the other is the player is a potentially big star in the making – having been outstanding for the England U19 team.

The news suggests that Newcastle are one of  three clubs to bid for Moses, along with promotion rivals Nottingham Forest and West Bromwich Albion.

Because Palace are in so much debt, the administrators have said the club must sell the 5’10” Moses, and indeed Crystal Palace were today deducted 10 points for going into administration, and are now just 3 points above a relegation spot, in 21st place.

Victor Moses was born in Nigeria and has played 58 times for Palace and scored 11 goals, so he certainly has a good pedigree. He has played for the England U16, U17 and U19 teams and is currently a team-mate of our own Nile Ranger in the England U19 squad.

We hope we sign the youngster, who only turned 19 last month, since he fits into the Youth Policy Newcastle started a couple of years ago – of buying top young players while they are still developing, and finishing their development at the Tyneside club.

We hope we can sign this lad, and if we do, then this could be the best transfer window ever, under Newcastle owner Mike Ashley.

Mike and Managing Director Derek Llambias have actually supported manager Chris Hughton this time round, even though we missed out on our initial top two targets.

That’s good.

Comments welcome.

    jesus… not a cat in hells chance

    but for a split second i let myself believe, and it felt goooood

    palace will get around 4mil for him and we wont bid that i would’ve thought

    also, the lads monitored by several prem teams including arsenal so no way jose

    although its nice to imagine him and ranger teaming up…

    I think we need to start laying off Ashley. It’s clear to all he’s trying. Granted, he has made mistakes. We all have in life. I know I have. But he has got us a few lads in this month when if he didn’t care he wouldn’t have bothered. Moses would be awesome signing. Better than beckford. Hats off to Ashley and co if we suceed. Come on guys. Humble pie??

    Superb if we cud get him.

    Got to admit I’m being pleasantly surprised by this January window so far and if you were Moses who would you pick, Forrest, West Brom ir Us?

    I know I’m biased but I would like to think it’s a no brainer surely???

    Wey aye man, you know he’ll be a Geordie! lol.

    Dunno… Simon Jordan, Nile Ranger and now Victor Moses…this whole affair has an air of biblical inevitability about it.

    Desperately what we need as no one could accuse us of being a good footballing side.

    We have a midfield that is slow, immobile, can’t pass the ball and can’t create anything.

    There is no movement off the ball. Our players are always stretched with no triangles or players supporting each other whatsoever.

    Get Moses and ditch Geremi, Butt, Barton

    Palace’s Administrator was interviewed on the radio last night and one thing’s for sure, he’s not going to hurry to sell Moses.

    Yes, he needs an injection of cash to run the club but he’s commsioned an Agent to deal with player transfers. So, he’ll not come cheap.

    An added comment was that Citeh, ManU and Arsenal are watching with ineterest and Arsenal were said to be wiling to go to £8m!

    A nice thought, but can you see MA splashing £8m on an 18 yr old?

    Dream on….. but it would be great if we got him to go with Ranger et al.
