Alan Pardew, after the game against West Ham United on Wednesday evening, hinted that he may be interested in a player from his former club.
Freddie Sears – Newcatsle may be interested in this 21 year-old winger
And while that could be any number of players, one that certainly fits the profile of players Newcastle want to bring in, is 21 year-old Freddie Sears.
Freddie played the whole game for West Ham at St. James’ Park, when Newcastle were just too good for the London side, and the bad 5-0 defeat seems to have cost Avram Grant his job, according to news this morning.
Sears has so far played 21 times for West Ham with two goals, and joined the club when he was 11 years old, and he can play on the wing or up front as a striker
Freddie has played 3 times for the England U21 side with one goal, and has been on loan at Scunthorpe United, Coventry City and Crystal Palace.
In total the Hornchurch, London born player has 74 first class games to his credit already, with a couple of goals and stands 5’7″ tall.
In February last year Sears went on loan to Coventry City for the rest of last season, and returned to the London club at the start of this season, but then found his playing opportunities were limited
So in October he joined Scunthorpe United, on a loan deal which lasted just over two months, and he made 9 appearances before returning to the Hammers just before Christmas, and played against Newcastle on Wednesday night.
He has made 5 appearances for West Ham so far this season with a goal against Wolves.
Alan Pardew may well be interested in Sears, but the youngster would probably also be one for the future, although Freddie would get some first team games this season.
