Newcastle are said by the Newcastle Journal this morning to be tracking young Livingston midfielder Andy Halliday.
But this deal if it goes through it will only be to bring in a good player while he is still young, which is a part of the Newcastle Youth strategy.
Newcastle brought in both James Milner and Charles N’Zogbia while they were still only 18, and then sold them both over the last last two years for £20M in total.
The 18 year-old midfielder was born in Glasgow, Scotland, and has played 29 times for the Scottish club Livingston with 12 goals.
The 6′ right winger started his career as a pro-youth player for his home town club Glasgow Rangers, but was released back in 2006.
Andy then moved to Livingston, playing for the under 19’s before making his first team debut, and he has now already played 29 times for the East Lothian club.
Livingston play in the Scottish 3rd divison and are currently top on 54 points after 24 games, and are 7 points clear of second placed East Stirlingshire with a game in hand.
Livingston in fact beat East Stirlingshire on Tuesday night 2-0 at home and Andy scored after 34 minutes.
We expect Newcastle top bring in a few top youngsters this summer, and Andrew could be one of them.
