Hull City will have to sell some of their top earners in the summer as they try to get control of a £35M debt and life back in England’s second tier.
Jimmy Bullard – will Newcastle be interested?
Midfielder Jimmy Bullard is almost certain to be sold this summer, but the former Fulham, Wigan and Peterborough player has a hefty £45K/week wage.
And given his hopeless injury record over the last several seasons, the 31 year-old may not be good value for money right now.
Newcastle already have a midfield player who has sustained many injuries on Tyneside in 27 year-old Joey Barton, who still has to reach 50 appearances for the club, even though he’s been on Tyneside three full seasons.
And Jimmy will be 32 in October so he’s hardly the young player who can improve big time on Tyneside, which is what Newcastle will be on the look-out for this summer.
And Jimmy also didn’t produce when push came to shove for Hull City this season in the relegation race, and he reminds us too much of our own Michael Owen last season, who was on £110K/week wages and when the going got tough – disappeared.
So we don’t think Jimmy would be a good buy this summer for Newcastle – he’s too old and too injury prone to be worth the money in transfer fees and wages.
Anyway, that’s what we think – let’s know your opinions on Jimmy.
And remember opinions are just that – opinions – and not necessarily facts.
