There is news that this week is the deadline week for Tom Cleverley and his club Manchester United, to choose the Premier League club Tom will play at next season.
Tom Cleverley – about to sign for Newcastle on loan?
And the two clubs mentioned the most are Blackpool and Newcastle United, with the favorite being the famous Tyneside club, and said to be Tom’s first choice.
The only possible problem we see is if Sir Alex Ferguson is demanding that Tom be a starter at Newcastle, but that could have been made up news.
And surely if Chris Hughton can assure Alex that Tom will get lots of playing time on Tyneside – that should be enough and Tom should be signing soon – and this week too.
The 20-year-old midfielder is in some demand since he was impressive in the Red Devils’ pre-season tour of North America, with a goal against both Celtic and the MLS All-Stars.
Ferguson recently said he may decide to give Tom the chance to establish himself at Old Trafford this season, such was his form in America, but we think he’ll be shipped out on loan for more playing time.
And if Newcastle get him for the season – that’s another good signing made by Chris Hughton this summer. Chris has had very little money to spend but still has done well to already bring in three good players.
Tom would be a great signing for next season, and would add more class to the Tyneside squad.
