Newcastle are still being linked with a move for Sean Morrison of Swindon Town.
Sean Morrison – Newcastle reportedly tracking this 19 year-old
There was a report yesterday in the Daily Mail that said that Championship leaders Queens Park Rangers were hoping to strengthen their defense by acquiring Sean Morrison in January.
But it looks as though both Newcastle and Sunderland are also closely tracking the 19 year-old 6’1″ center-back, and could make a move for the player in the January transfer window.
The Plymouth-born youngster was signed from his home town club back in the summer of 2007, and has so far made 48 appearances for Swindon with 4 goals, and also made 8 appearances while on loan at Southend United last season.
The center-back made his Swindon debut in April of 2008 against Gillingham, and is now a regular member of the side.
Sean could be brought into the Newcastle club as one for the future, and the player has just one year left on his current deal at Swindon, and so Newcastle could pay Swindon a nominal fee to acquire him in January.
While Chris Hughton has said he will not bring anybody in this January, Newcastle are always on the look-out for good young talent and we hope there is some validity in this story.
