Sky Sports is reporting tonight that Manchester City winger and Slovakia International Vladimir Weiss would be flattered by interest from the famous Newcastle United club.
Vladimir Weiss – can Newcastle get this boy on Tyneside?
That’s according to his agent Juraj Venglos, so we should take that with a little pinch of salt, because Jurag gets paid if he can arrange the loan deal with Newcastle.
But nevertheless it’s good news for Newcastle fans, because being flattered by a club’s interest usually translates to – please come and get me.
Chris Hughton has been linked with a move for the exciting 20 year-old Slovakian international, and Vladimir was the first player to congratulate his Dad – Slovakian coach Vladimir Weiss when Slovakia had that incredible 3-2 win yesterday over woeful Italy, to go through to the round of the last 16.
The country of Slovakia- all 2M of them – would have have been celebrating last night, that’s for sure – and good for them – and no doubt young Vladimir is on a bit of a high right now too, although he didn’t play against Italy.
Weiss joined Bolton on loan last January, and made 13 appearances for the Lancashire club, and helped them avoid relegation under new manager Owen Coyle.
But it’s likely his parent club Manchester City will be willing to let the youngster go out on loan next season, to get some first team experience.
Chris Hughton seems to have his hands tied at Newcastle with little money being available this summer, but getting Vladimir on loan would be an exciting signing for the Tyneside club, since Vladimir is the type of winger Newcastle fans just love to see, and he will only get better next season.
His agent Venglos told TASR today:
“Vladimir would surely be flattered by the chance to play regularly at a club as big as Newcastle United.”
“I know of Newcastle’s interest only from the media. In any case, Vladimir naturally wants to play at a good club, but he will have to make a decision himself.
“Whether there is any truth in it or not, one thing is for sure – any possible negotiations will begin only after the World Cup.”
Weiss moved to Manchester City in 2006 and and the 20 year-old looks set for a stellar career in the big time – and we’d love to have this lad on Tyneside next season, helping out Newcastle United, just love it.
