Disappointing new today being reported by the Evening Chronicle that Newcastle are not going to join the race to sign England under-21 striker Daniel Sturridge.
Daniel Sturridge – not coming to Newcastle – why not?
The local paper is reporting that Alan Pardew does not have Sturridge on the list of players he is trying to acquire this summer.
So we have no idea why this is the case, but we hope it’s not because the youngster is too expensive – but we are starting to have our doubts.
The Birmingham-born 21-year-old former Aston Villa trainee, is extremely popular with Newcastle fans, and we’ve had a number of articles out on the player, who we think would be just a terrific signing for Newcastle.
Sturridge spent this year on loan at Bolton Wanderers, and scored an amazing 8 goals in 12 appearances, but not only that, the lad looked very good indeed.
A Newcastle United source said today:
“The manager is looking into other players, so it is unlikely Sturridge will be coming to Newcastle.”
This is disappointing news to say the least, as Sturridge seems to check all of the points of a young player Newcastle want to bring to Tyneside this summer.
