If we are to believe the latest news on who Chris Hughton may be after, he has lined up some top youngsters for Newcastle next season.
Jack Wilshere – Newcastle loan target
Good news yesterday was that Chris Hughton for the first time said he was interested in bringing young players like Jack Wishere, Arsenal’s 18 year-old future star, to Newcastle on loan next season.
And we have to think that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger would want to loan out his player to Newcastle, where he would be playing in front of 50,000 home crowds and get some great experience on Tyneside
Other youngsters Newcastle are said to be interested in are 20 year-old Tom Cleverley and 19 year-old Danny Welbeck of Manchester United, and 23 year-old defender Nedum Onouha of Manchester City.
These could all be loan signings for Newcastle, although we would think Manchester City may want to transfer Nedum, since it looks like he doesn’t have any real future at the Eastlands club.
The reports are that Eastlands manager Roberto Mancini will have up to £150M to spend on new players this summer – which we find completely ridiculous.
But given players like Wilshere, Welbeck, Cleverley and Onouha, any one of these would be exciting signings for the Newcastle club, and would add some considerable flair to the Newcastle squad, which is what we want to see.
We have to hope Newcastle will be successful in enticing some of these top youngsters to Tyneside. Fingers crossed.
