Newcastle Continue To Be Linked With Swindon’s Sean Morrison

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.

Comments welcome.

    agreed. when robson was in charge he was buying ‘ones for the future’ that were already developed to the stage where they could challenge first team; milners, bellamy’s, jenas’s etc.

    he also bought some right crap as well, but who doesn’t.

    Yeah i get it , 19 yr. old, big kid in a position we need help.
    In other words one for the future !
    Well what about the fact we have to survive this season or there may not be a future.
    Sure it`s nice to get players on the cheap, but don`t forget the so called bargains from the lower divisions don`t always work out, in other words buying from the second tier gets you a second tier side in most cases.
    If the club and it`s owner has any ambition (which i question) we should be looking to bring in some quality to rebuild this club into a competitive side.
    Both the present (epl) earnings plus big home crowds are generating enough funds to spend on a coupla quality players and if we are to guarantee survival in this division we are going to need them.
    But it`s obvious there`s not going to be anyone brought in, therefor we will gamble that this present side will be good enough, lets see ?

    This lad is class but lacks pace, he reads the game well and is in the Terry mould, he will be a great defender.

    Hi all, Swindon Town fan here. I come in peace! Just to let you all know there is a bit of info about Sean Morrison for you which i hope gives you an insight into the lad. When he started in the first team his positional play was understandably inconsistant, but you could see he was willing to learn when given advice from senior players. He is an absolute nightmare for opposition defenders in their penalty area, a big powrful lad, who jumps well and can head the ball well. Danny Wilson(Manager) will probably be reluctant to sell at a discount, but hey, sell on stuff nowadays can be a big bonus for smaller clubs. Town’s Chairman (Andrew Fitton)is no pushover and i’m sure if a deal is ever done with the Toon, You won’t get him for next to nothing. I don’t want to see him go, but he is a class act and if we don’t start to challange for a Championship place this season, He’s bound to be off. Good luck for the rest of the season, May post more on this subject in the future if you want.
