Chris Hughton has said today that Newcastle United are not interested in signing 28 year-old Guinea striker Fode Mansare, who plays at Toulouse.
Fode Mansare – Newcastle not interested
Chris talked today about the news linking Newcastle with Mansare, which originated in the French press last week:
“He is not one of the players we are after although I’ve seen we have been linked with him.”
“It’s not true, but it doesn’t concern me. There will always be speculation in football, it will be here next summer and in ten years time as well.”
Well that’s very true, and we would think Chris has been amused at some of the players the press has linked Newcastle with this summer.
But the fact we have no interest in the 28 year-old suggests that Newcastle are indeed after younger players who can improve when they are brought to Tyneside.
But the Newcastle club is still linked with a number of top young stars currently at the big six clubs, and any one of them from – Kyle Naughton, Jack Wilshere, Heni Lansbury, Tom Cleverely, Danny Welbeck and Danny Rose – would be great loan signings for a season on Tyneside.
