It seems that Charles N’Zogbia would welcome a move back to his former club Newcastle United.
Charles N’Zogbia - he saved Wigan last season
Newcastle were keen to sign Charles in January, after they had sold Andy Carroll to Liverpool, but with just hours left in the window, Wigan asked for a ridiculous fee for their player.
If they were going to lose their best player they wanted big compensation for him, just like Newcastle had received from Liverpool for one of their top players – Andrew Carroll.
The news is that Newcastle went in last week with a low first offer of 5M for Charles, and we expect an increased bid from the Magpies.
Charles also has a Twitter account and he tweeted this yesterday:
“Newcastle is a big club and a great atmosphere to play at St James’ Park!” ” I enjoyed the time I had playing for NUFC.”
The one problem with Charles is how he would affect the team spirit at Newcastle, since when he was last here, he went in the huff more than once, and seemed to be in his own little world at times.
But since he left Newcastle he seems to have become a better player, if anything, and we are also hoping he has also matured.
If that’s the case, he would be a tremendous acquisition for Newcastle, and probably worth up to £10M.
It also seems that manager Alan Pardew is a big admirer of N’Zogbia, and of course given the squad Newcastle currently have. the French International would fit right in on one of the wings.
That’s an area Newcastle are planning to strengthen in the summer.
