When you look at some up-and-coming players who could do a job for Newcastle next season, you don’t have to look further than Tom Cleverley, Manchester United’s 20 year old winger.
Tom Cleverely – would be great acquisition by Newcastle
Tom is a skillful winger who can score goals, and the 5’9″ Basingstoke-born player currently has amassed 50 first class appearances with 13 goals in his two loan spells at Leicester and Watford.
Tom was on loan at Leicester in season 2008-2009 and played 15 times with 2 goals while at Filbert Street. And of course this season he has been on loan at Watford, where he’s played 35 times with 11 goals and has had a very good season.
Whether Manchester United would be willing to sell the player this summer is unknown, but at least Newcastle could try to get him on a season-long loan deal on Tyneside, with a view to signing the youngster in the future.
He would be an exciting player for Newcastle to sign, and of course his best years are still ahead of him, and he would offer excellent competition to Gutierrez and Routledge on either Newcastle wing next season, and would get plenty of playing time.
Cleverley was brought up in Bradford, and joined their Youth system before Manchester United acquired him when he was just 15 in 2005.
While he usually plays on the wing, he is also more than a capable defender, so he seems flexible too.
He would be a great buy in the summer for Newcastle United, there’s not much doubt about that.
