Newcastle are reported to be tracking 19 year-old Swindon defender Sean Morrison.
Sean Morrison – Swindon’s 19 year old center-back
The Plymouth-born youngster was signed from his home town club in the summer of 2007, and has so far made 46 appearances for Swindon with 4 goals, and he also made 8 appearances while on loan at Southend United last season.
The 6’1″ center-back made his Swindon debut back in April of 2008 against Gillingham, and is now a regular in the side.
Apparently Sunderland are also interested in the youngster, but aren’t they always interested in whoever Newcastle are tracking? The answer is yes. 😀
If this story is indeed true, and it seems to be coming from TalkSport, Sean could be brought in as one for the future, and we’ll see how he comes though, but these are just the type of players Newcastle should be tracking.
Morrison has one year left on his current deal at Swindon, and the reports suggest the club could demand up to £400K for the promising young central defender, who has been in excellent form this season.
Newcastle’s first youngster signed under owner Mike Ashley, was then 17 year-old Ben Tozer from Swindon Town, and he is currently out on loan at Northampton Town for a month.
