There is news that Newcastle have started negotiating with their captain Kevin Nolan, about a new extended contract at Newcastle.
Kevin Nolan – in negotiations with Newcastle on new deal
Kevin was signed from Bolton Wanderers just over two years ago for around £4M, and Kevin signed a four and a half year deal at the club.
So while he has a contract at Newcastle until the summer of 2013, the People is reporting Newcastle want him tied down to a longer term deal.
Kevin has been great for Newcastle, after a difficult first six months at the club, but in 88 appearances for the Tyneside club he has an amazing 29 goals
Kevin is currently joint top scorer at Newcastle this season with 11 goals, and is joint top with the departed Andy Carroll, who left for Liverpool in January.
This may be a ploy for Newcastle to sign up those top players they can, and follows their successful signing of Cheick Tiote last month on a massive new six and a half year deal to stay on Tyneside, which Cheick seems more than willing to do.
The 28 year-old Liverpudlian has often talked about seeing out his career at Newcastle, and he is one of those emotional players who thrives on living in City that;s just mad on football and its football club.
And of course Kevin loves playing in front of 52,000 fanatical fans, at every home game for Newcastle at St. James’ Park.
Signing Kevin Nolan on a long term deal would be very good business by Newcastle.
