There were rumors in Newcastle yesterday that Rangers’ striker Kris Boyd was on Tyneside and about to sign for Newcastle United.
Kris Boyd – not on Tyneside yesterday
Lasst week , Chris Hughton was asked by the Journal’s Luke Edwards if there was any truth in the rumors that Newcastle may be interested in the Rangers’ striker.
Kris Boyd is available on a free transfer, and it may be true that the club are still interested in this player, but Chris Hughton said last week there was “absolutely no truth” in the claims made that Newcastle were interested.
So whether he would still say that today is an open question – and we’ve also noticed that Chris can be quite wily as far as transfer talk goes.
There is also a report that we may be bidding for back-four player Nedum Onuoha of Manchester City, but no word yet on whether Chris Hughton has denied that story.
