It’s getting rather comical how Newcastle are being linked with all kinds of players, both young and old.
Ivan Klasnic – 30 year old has 7 goals in 28 appearances for Bolton
We have to believe the players Newcastle want to sign in the summer are 26 years-old or younger, because that builds for the future and makes a lot of financial sense too.
So when there are reports around that say Newcastle are interested in players past their best – we look at those reports with great scepticism.
Bolton Wanderers have had the 38 times capped Croation Ivan Klasnic on loan for the season, and it seems that his parent club Nantes want somebody – anybody – to take the player off their books.
The French club are are looking for a club to take the 30-year-old Croatian on a permanent basis, and the clubs interested are said to be Newcastle United and Stoke City.
Please take Newcastle off that list, since gone are the days when the Tyneside club would take a player way past his best, and pay him ridiculously high wages.
That Newcastle club was in the past.
