Pardew Priority is Is A Good Winger

Alan Pardew is still hoping to make the addition of a good winger to the Newcastle ranks,  in the remaining nine days of the January transfer window.

Alan Pardew – still working hard to bring new players in

Pardew wants a winger who can put in those crosses to his two top big men in the middle, Andy Carroll and Shola Ameobi

And recent reports in Belgium claiming that Newcastle may be after  Anderlecht winger Jonathan Legear,  may just be a regurgitated story, since Newcastle were said to be interested in the player last summer.

And as we reported earlier this morning Newcastle may still be in negotiations with Sebastian Larsson at Birmingham, who even put in a transfer request last Thursday.

Pardew, quite rightly, is not saying too much at all about just who Newcastle may be after, but he wanted to reassure Newcastle fans the club are trying to bring in new players.

Pardew told the Evening Chronicle today:

“Between now and the end of the window, anything can change.” “There will be movement every hour and every day between now and then.”

Routledge’s move to back to QPR on loan, which will almost certainly turn into a permanent move if QPR are promoted, has put pressure on Newcastle to bring in a replacement before February 1st.

But shouldn’t the club should have waited until they drafted in a replacement,  before agreeing to let Wayne leave?

Comments welcome.

    The best right sided midfielder in the league this season: Lee at Bolton. A little solano/beardsley type magician behind all their good passing football, 6 assists and a natural finisher.

    Moses may be more realistic. Would love him to come to the toon.

    Winger first priority.
    Then a left back.
    That’d make me a happy man this January.

    Boater has he scored many goals. You say he is a natural finished but it does not seem he has finished one this season

    Aye charlietoon – reckon he is, he’s too unselfish around the box but still has 3. He also scored 3 in the world cup finals which weren’t bad. Doubt they’d let him go.

    We need someone at RM, as always I’d prefer a younger player with promise and technical ability.. if not I’d take SWP, Pedersen etc. as a sure thing at this level.

    Kranjar..Arry just said he is available and he wants to play on the left…get him, put Jonas on the right. When Ben Arfa is back, Kranjar can even play in the middle..

    The Given situation was effing disgraceful and showed us up badly.
    We became (even more of) a laughing stock – what we got and the way Man City sneered at our requests for a player.

    Matty Etherington is a good crosser as well.
