Interesting news today that Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is considering a January move for Newcastle United winger Wayne Routledge.
Wayne Routledge – are Liverpool interested in this player?
Wayne has been in good form since signing from QPR last January, and he has even looked a decent player again in the Premier League, and the news is that Hodgson is looking for more width to better balance the Liverpool side.
The report suggests that Roy Hodgson hopes he can persuade the London-born former England Under 21 international into making a move to Merseyside, and the player is said to be valued at around £8M.
A couple of things that stand out here is that Newcastle paid nowhere near £8M for the player last January, and if a bid comes in they would have to consider it.
But there again Newcastle would need to replace Wayne, and unless they have somebody lined up in January to replace him, it’s very doubtful Newcastle would let Wayne go, since he’s been a success so far on Tyneside.
Let us know what you think about this report, and whether Newcastle would even think of letting Wayne leave Newcastle United.
