News today that Newcatsle have pulled out of the race to sign free agent Seb Larsson.
Seb Larsson – Newcastle have pulled out
In January Newcatsle were in negotiations with Larsson’s agent to sign the player, when Birmingham again decided he would not be allowed to leave Birmingham.
But if you are to believe the Sunday Sun today Newcastle are after better players than Sebastian, and will not pursue their interest.
That sounds like PR to us, and Seb was a good player and a great crosser of the ball.
But Sunderland, Blackburn and Stoke City are after the player and it’s a bit of a mystery to us why Newcastle have pulled out.
We were hoping he could be signed and take the place of Joey Barton on Newcastle’s right wing – if Joey does leave this summer, which seems more likely than not.
It could be that the way is now open for Sunderland to sign the player. 🙁
We had hoped Larsson would become a Newcastle player this summer, so we are disappointed at this news.
