Newcastle have apparently made some enquiries about the Ibrox striker, Kris Boyd in the past – but apparently there has been no contact lately from the Newcastle club for the free agent.
Kris Boyd – would welcome a Newcastle approach
And we are now hearing reports that Kris would indeed welcome an approach from the Newcastle club.
A source said to be close to Boyd, probably his agent, told the Evening Chronicle today:
“Kris hasn’t heard anything from Newcastle,” “They don’t seem to be doing too much – the whole transfer market’s pretty slow but it’s early days yet, it should pick up in the next fortnight or so.”
“There are Turkish clubs interested, two or three of them seriously so, and four English clubs.” “There was interest from Newcastle in January and at times over the last year or so.”
“Newcastle are a club Kris admires and he would welcome renewed interest.”
This seems like his agent talking, and of course there job is to drum up interest in their players, as they try to get them to new clubs before the end of June, when their current contracts run out.
And it seems that Kris would welcome a move to Newcastle, so he’s at least ticked one of the boxes. Newcastle will only want players who want to play on Tyneside.
But Chris Hughton said a couple of weeks ago that Newcastle had no interest in the player, although some noises coming out of Ibrox suggest that Newcastle may indeed be interested behind the scenes.
So who knows – but if Newcastle are to sign this player – they will need to do it within the next 3 weeks or so.
