There is some discouraging news being reported in the Sunday Sun today, regarding the Newcastle move to bring Manchester City defender Nedum Onuoha to Tyneside.
Nedum Onuoha – not coming to Newcastle?
Neil Farrington is reporting there is little chance of Nedum arriving on Tyneside.
And the reason seems to be Joey Barton – who of course had that terrible altercation with City ream-mate Ousmane Dabo back in May of 2007, just a few months before then City manager Stuart Pearce sold him to Newcastle United for £5.8M.
The Sunday Sun is reporting the player will have little interest in moving to St James’ Park while his former City colleague Joey Barton is still at the club.
If that’s true that has to be bad news for the Newcastle club, unless Chris Hughton can persuade the Eastlands player that Joey is a changed man.
Let’s hope Nedum didn’t read about the Andy Carroll – Steven Taylor punch-up.
