The contract of Swedish International winger Sebastian Larsson runs out in the summer, and his club Birmingham City have so far been unable to get him to sign a new contract.
Seb Larsson – free agent next summer?
We don’t know if Newcastle will be interested or not in this player, but Seb was a Newcastle target a couple of seasons ago, and at the time the Swede said he was honored to be linked with a club like Newcastle.
Well that sounded good, and of course he’s a good winger who can cross the ball very well – hopefully right onto the head of Andy Carroll.
The lad started his career at Arsenal, and was signed by Birmingham City at the end of January 2007, on a four-year deal for a £1M fee, after spending some time on loan at the Midlands club.
And there was news on Sunday that Blackburn Rovers are interested in signing the 25 year-old in January.
The People reported that Sam Allardyce was strongly interested in the winger, and of course Birmingham may be forced to sell in January, so at least they get something for him, rather than lose him for nothing in the summer.
But that will also lower his transfer fee in January, and since Newcastle seem to be after some wingers, we wondered if Chris Hughton may be interested .
As our regular readers will know, we are big fans of Sebastian Larsson, and think he would do very well at a club like Newcastle United.
