News today that Newcastle United are after Scottish midfielder Scott Allan.
Scott Allan – 19 year-old Scottish midfield play-maker
The Scotland U21 International (2 caps) turns 20 at the end of November, and has only recently rejected a new contract offer from Dundee, and there is news today in the Daily Mail that Newcastle are interested in the player.
The Glasgow-born Allan has played four times for Dundee this season, and last season he played four time for Forfar Athletic with one goal, while out on a short term loan deal.
Allan was charged with assault last November, after an incident on Queen Street in Glasgow which left two men needing hospital treatment, and other Dundee players were also involved and charged, but then all assault charges were dropped last June, due to insufficient evidence.
When Newcastle bring in new players they will check on their characters and personality of the players, so there may be a question mark with Allan.
Scott first joined Dundee back in 2001 as a 10 year-old, and he is a player with vision and awareness he will see passes that others will not, and his reading of the game is said to be excellent too, and he also has good close control.
Scott Allan will become a free agent next summer and Newcastle could pick him up on a free transfer.
