There is news today that Newcastle may be interested in Wolves 25 year-old central midfielder David Jones.
David Jones – are Newcastle interested in this player?
The former Manchester United midfielder signed a three year deal for Wolves in June 2008, when he was singed from Derby County for a reported fee of £1.2M.
The impressive Wolves midfielder was offered a new deal by manager Mick McCarthy towards the end of last season, but talks have stalled, and the 25-year-old is now into the final year of his contract at Molineux.
It wouldn’t surprise us if Newcastle are monitoring the situation with a view to picking up Jones next summer as a free agent, or even in January for a nominal fee.
American goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann, talked about David:
“David has been great for us; he’s technically so good and came up with a brilliant free-kick for our first goal against Stoke.”
“Obviously we want him to stay as he’s a great creative player for us and we will need all of those qualities this season.”
Newcastle will already have their transfer targets identified for January when some new players will be expected to be brought in to further enhance the playing staff at the Newcastle club, and while there will not be too much money to spend, Newcastle are always on the look-out for a good deal under owner Mike Ashley.
The Magpies have made quite a few of them this year including getting Sol Campbell and Dan Gosling at the club on free transfers over the summer.
The Southport-born 5’11” player has played on loan at Preston North End, NEC Nijmegen and Derby County, before he signed for Derby from the Red Devils in January of 2007 for £1M.
He has so far played around 65 times for Wolves.
