News this morning that Newcastle and West Brom have been informed that Arsenal’s Henri Lansbury will go out on loan next season.
Henri Lansbury – will Newcastle move?
The Arsenal central midfielder wants first-team football next season, and it will be interesting to see if Newcastle move in for the impressive youngster, who made his debut for Arsenal at just 17.
Henri is a good player in the making, but the Magpies also have 17 year-old Slovenina U21 star Haris Vuckic at the Tyneside club, and he also needs first team football next season.
Arsene Wenger has decided to allow the 19-year-old to leave the Emirates for a season long loan deal, but only to another Premier League club, and Arsene is known to be an admirer of the famous Newcastle United club.
Lansbury was good while on loan at Watford last season, and the news suggests he will speak to the two managers, Chris Hughton and Roberto Di Matteo before deciding where he will spend next season.
But we’d be a little surprised if Chris brought Lansbury to Newcastle, since he will have a fight on his hands for first team football, with Barton, Smith, Nolan and Guthrie all fighting it out already in central midfield.
The 19 year-old 6′ tall midfielder, who was born in Enfield, has 60 first class appearances to his name so far, and is an England U21 International already.
