Looking back at our records, Newcastle have been linked with Wolves central midfielder David Jones since early last summer.
David Jones – Wolves central midfielder
And news today that Bolton Wanderers may also be interested in getting the midfielder, whose contract runs out at Wolves in the summer.
Southport-born Jones is a good player, and is a particularly good passer of the ball, and of course, for no transfer fee he could be a good buy for Newcastle in the summer.
But David hasn’t played too much for Wolves this season, having appeared just 15 times with a single goal, and he wasn’t even in the Wolves squad on Saturday, but we’re not sure if he’s out injured at the moment.
Jones told the Express & Star today:
“I’ve played for Mick McCarthy for three years and you never know what might happen in the future,”
“There’s still a chance of me staying, but the main priority for the club is staying in the Premier League and we’ll see where we are at the end of the season.”
“I haven’t really thought much about it but I just want to play as much as I can and see what happens in the summer. Maybe we’ll talk then because it can always get sorted out.”
“It’s not as if anything is ‘off the table’ at the moment, but from my point of view and everyone else at the club, we’re just trying to stay in the Premier League.”
David is very non committal there, but he seems to want to see where Wolves end up at the end of the season first.
And of course they had a terrific win against Manchester United over the weekend to end the Red Devil’s unbeaten season, and they deserved the win too.
The former Derby County player, who started his career at Manchester United, has played over 50 times for Wolves with 5 goals.
The doubt we have about David is whether he’s good enough for Newcastle, but when we’ve seen him play for Wolves, he’s looked a very good player.
