There is some news in the Guardian this morning that Newcastle may be interested in Manchester City winger Shaun Wright-Phillips.
Shaun Wright-Phillips – Newcastle interested?
The 28 year-old Greenwich-born player would be a very popular addition to the Newcastle squad with Newcastle fans, there’s little doubt about that.
He is not unlike Wayne Routledge in his type of play and his enthusiasm, and we think if he did arrive on Tyneside, he would do very well indeed at Newcastle.
As we mentioned yesterday Shaun is a free agent this summer, and there’s some doubt about his future at Manchester City, a club he joined in 1998 and has now played over 250 games for with over 30 goals.
Shaun, who stands 5’5″ tall, had a disastrous transfer to Chelsea in the summer of 2005 for £25M, and he played 161 times at Chelsea with 18 goals, before returning to Manchester City two years ago.
There’s no doubt this lad is a good player and can play on either wing and therefore would be an excellent signing for the Newcastle United club.
The only doubt we have about Shaun is his age, as Chris has said this morning he is interested in players around 25 year-old or younger.
Chris will turn 29 in October, and age is the only doubt we have about this player, simply because Newcastle have stated they want to sign younger players.
What do you think?
