There’s some interesting news in this morning’s Sunday Sun with regard to our top 17 year-old Slovenian Haris Vuckic.
Haris Vuckic – first teamer next season?
The report suggests that Newcastle manager Chris Hughton has moved to head off interest in young highly rated attacking midfielder Haris Vuckic.
With Manchester United and AC Milan tracking the fit-again Slovenian teenager, we had reported last week the interest in the 6’2″ midfielder.
But the Sunday Sun is suggesting today that Chris Hughton has assured Vuckic that he will be a regular starter for Newcastle in the Premiership next season.
We find that hard to believe, especially from a guy like Chris Hughton.
It could be he’s promised Haris very chance to make the first team next season, but we still expect another creative midfielder to come in during the summer.
But if Haris is as good as people have said, he may well be good enough next season for Newcastle, and we need some of out younger players like Vuckic, Kadar, Ranger and some others to come through big time if our squad is going to be good enough to survive a relegation battle.
If Haris indeed makes his break-through next season, that will be a huge boon to the Newcastle club.
Some fans who have seen the youngster have been under-impressed, but we hear that some of the senior Newcastle players are convinced this lad has everything it takes to become a world class player.
Here’s hoping. 😀
