Newcastle Interested In Young Wigan Striker

It seems that Wigan teenager Rakish Bingham is on Newcastle’s radar screen for the summer.

The 18 year-old striker has been in good form for the Wigan Reserves side this season, and it seems that he is interesting a lot of clubs including Fulham, Manchester City, Sunderland and Glasgow Rangers,  as well as Newcastle.

The news is in the Sun and we reported yesterday that Newcastle would like to bring in a good young striker to the club in the summer, because it’s almost certain that both Peter Lovenkrands and Nile Ranger will be leaving Newcastle.

The lad was born in Newham, London but we notice he wasn’t in the Wigan Reserves squad,  when Newcastle twice beat Wigan in the Barclays Premier Reserve League North this season.

It’s difficult to find too much information about the teenager, so if readers have seen this lad play, let us know what he’s like.

And if Wigan are relegated this season – they are currently rock bottom on 19 points – then it seems that former Newcastle target Victor Moses may be sold, with QPR already registering an interest.

But of course QPR will need to stay in the Premier League too and at the moment they are above the drop zone only because of their better goal difference than Blackburn and Wolves, who have the same number of points – 21 – as QPR.

Maybe Newcastle will increase their interest in the 21 year-old England U21 winger in the summer.

Comments welcome.
