We may be a little naive, but maybe we should listen to Newcastle manager Chris Hughton about who may, and who may not be coming to Newcastle United this summer.
Kris Boyd – no interest from Newcastle
So when the news today is that all the talk in Glasgow is that Rangers’ star striker Kris Boyd is all set to become Newcastle’s first summer signing, that doesn’t jibe at all with what Newcastle manager Chris Hughton is saying today in the local Newcastle newspaper.
It’s being reported that Boyd was a boyhood fan of the famous Newcastle side – but we wonder if that’s true – since that’s the first time we’ve heard that one, and is probably more illustrative of just how much Kris wants to join the Newcastle club.
Hughton told the Evening Chronicle today:
“Kris Boyd is a good player, but I can categorically say that there have been no talks at this stage.”“There has been no correspondence and no communication.” “You never want to say 100% no, but it’s a non-starter at this moment.”
So if you believe Chris – then Newcastle are simply not interested in Kris and if they were – surely now is the time to do the deal.
What do you think?
By the way – take a look at my World Cup Blog For Argentina for the Daily Telegraph – I managed to get in quite a lot about how great Newcastle did last season. There will be a lot of Argentine fans very knowledgeable about Newcastle United’s before the World Cup is finished – I can promise you that. 😀
