Good news this morning that Newcastle could turn to Vladimír Weiss, the Manchester City 20 year-old Slovakian winger for a season-long loan deal.
Vladimír Weiss – Newcastle loan signing?
In fact we are watching the New Zealand – Slovakia game as we write this piece (multi-tasking), and Weiss is on the right wing for the Slovakian side in the Group F game in Rustenburg.
Apparently Chris Hughton had the 20-year-old on a list of options in January during the transfer window, but Weiss joined Bolton Wanderers and made 13 appearances with no goals for the Lancashire side.
But now that Newcastle are back in the Premiership, the Tyneside club would seem to be a good available option for the youngster.
Vladimir comes from a real footballing family, as his father, Vladimír Weiss, is currently head coach of the Slovakia national football team, and his grandfather, also named Vladimír Weiss, was a very good player who represented Czechoslovakia.
And Newcastle chief scout Graham Carr knows all about Weiss from his time at Eastlands, and when we watched the youngster last season several times, he looked a great young player in the making.
Just the type of player we need on Tyneside.
The youngster has played 5 times with a single goal for Manchester City and he would be a terrific season-long loan signing for Newcastle, so we have to hope there is some truth in this report today.
The Bratislava, Czechoslovakia born youngster was at his local club Inter Bratislava until he joined Manchester City back in 2006, as a 16 year-old.
He looks a smashing winger in the making and has played 10 times already for his country, and would be a terrific loan signing for the club – if we can get him.
Note: Slovakia have gone ahead 1-0 after 50 minutes- with a terrific cross from Weiss which Vittek headed home in style – we told you Weiss was good. 😀
