Many fans were more than impressed by former player Darren Ambrose on Wednesday night.
Darren Ambrose – could be a savvy signing for Newcastle
Darren was signed by Bobby Robosn for Newcastle, from his old club Ipswich Town, in 2003 and was sold by Graeme Souness to Charlton a couple of years later.
But Darren was a decent player, as his 10 caps at England U21 level shows, and since leaving Newcastle Ambrose has played a lot of games, mostly in the lower divisions.
But he may be the type of creative player Newcastle desperately need to sign this month, or else we’ll have to suffer through a lot more game like yesterday’s.
And with Crystal Palace now in administration, a reasonable offer of say £1M could hardly be turned down by the administrators.
Darren is still only 25 and the 6′ tall player appeared around 56 times for Newcastle and scored 6 goals.
Since leaving Newcastle Darren played 125 times for Charlton with 16 goals, 9 times on loan at Ipswich his first club, and currently 31 times at Crystal Palace but with an impressive 14 goals.
Darren moved to Crystal Palace on a free transfer last year, which is even more reason why Palace administrators would snap up a decent bid for the player.
In his still short career the lad has 215 first class appearances with 37 goals.
Do you think Darren would be a good acquisition right now?
