Who says Newcastle will not be able to strengthen their squad this summer, even though no transfer money will be available?
Joe Cole – one of 500 free agents available this summer
News today that there are currently 500 free agents on the market looking for new clubs this summer.
These include mostly older players and include stars such as Joe Cole and Michael Ballack od Chelsea, Joe Ledley, Martin Petrov, Hamit Altintop, Kris Boyd, William Gallas, Robert Koren, Sol Campbell and Thierry Henry amongst many others.
While players like Joe Cole, Ballack and possibly Joe Ledley ad some others are beyond the reach of Newcastle United, there has to be some good players in that list who could do a job for Newcastle next season- surely.
The players’ union have already listed more than 400 released players on their website, (they include Newcastle’s Nicky Butt), advertising the availability of the players and we’re certain Chris Hughton has already been trolling this list of players over the past few weeks.
Here are the top 30- up for grabs this summer – according to the Daily Mail:
As PFA chief executive Gordon Taylor said today:
“It is a very insecure career.”
Let’s hope Newcastle can find a couple of free agents who would fit the bill at Newcastle this summer, and then we can get another couple of good loan signings in August – and we could be on our way.
