19 year-old Nile Ranger seems to be coming through the ranks quickly on Tyneside, and that’s one reason Chris Hughton seems unwilling to loan the player out, to the many Championship clubs that would take him in a New York minute.
Nile Ranger – to be offered a new contract
And news today that Newcastle are to offer the youngster a new and improved contract on Tyneside, and that’s good news.
It was back in mid-April of 2009 that Nile Ranger signed his last contract, which was a three-and-a-half-year deal, and that back then was just reward for the excellent start he had made to life at St. James’ Park.
And manager Chris Hughton is of course a big fan of the youngster, and certainly Chris has brought along the youngster in fine style, and Nile keeps improving all the time, and the club have obviously thought that the Londoner was worth a new improved and extended contract.
The reports suggest Newcastle want the lad to sign a new 5.5 year deal, which will keep him on Tyneside until 2015, and he’ll then be a mature 24 years old.
Chris Hughton’s desire to keep the 19 year-old at the club suggests that he must be doing very well in training, and of course Hughton is a great coach, and he’s already brought Andy Carroll through the ranks quickly, to become a full International for England at just 21 years old.
There’s no reason whatsoever that he cannot do the same thing with Nile.
Maybe in a couple of years time we’ll have big Andy and big Nile terrorizing the opposing defenses – what a wonderful thought that is. 😀
