Danny Thanks Newcastle Fans – He’s Definitely Leaving

It’s not a big surprise that Danny Guthrie will be leaving Newcastle this summer.

Danny Guthrie – a good player and a good lad

His four year deal at Newcastle runs out at the end of June and he will become a free agent.

Danny was signed by Newcastle in the summer of 2008 from Liverpool, when Kevin Keegan was manager.

But he’s had a lot of injuries on Tyneside, but showed what a very good player he is with some top performances last season, when he has deputized in central midfield for Newcastle.

Danny cost around £3M when we signed him, but he should be able to get a good deal in the summer, and he’s been strongly linked with Aston Villa.

But since Alex McLeish was fired last Monday, he will need to wait to see who the new manager is, but a lot of good Premier League clubs will be taking a hard look at signing Danny up, he’s such a low risk as a free agent.

It’s hard to blame a guy who leave Newcastle because he  wants first team football, and Danny made this clear on his Twitter account:

“Massive thank you to all toon fans its been great but I have to be playing first team football, the toon will always be in my heart.”

Alan Pardew has said that Danny is not happy when he’s not in the first team, and for that reason he should leave Newcastle.

The standards at Newcastle have risen a lot since Alan Pardew came in a very short eighteen months ago, otherwise maybe Danny could have played more games.

But he’s been a good player for Newcastle over the last four years and he’s a good lad.

For the record Danny played 104 times for Newcastle with 9 goals, and we thank him for his work on Tyneside, and wish him the very best in his future career on the football field.

Comments welcome.

    Thanks Danny Guthrie, good pro and a hard worker on the field, should have got more playing time imo, but he was never going to be first choice.

    Must say I thought that twitter account was a fake.

    Either way if he goes good luck to him did a good job when required and if he could of stayed fit he might of been a main stay in our starting 11.

    Guthrie would be great in a team like Swansea or Fulham even Aston Villa if Ole gets the job as he likes to get the ball down and play, Reading are also a good team and will be spending big to be consistant prem team… He might end up being Bartons replacement at QPR haha

    That is 100% a fake account!

    Anyway, I wouldn’t be suprised if what was written ends up being 100% right.

    But still, it is a fake account.

    Good luck Danny, id have liked him to stay but cant blame him wanting 1st team football, if he signed a new contract and was sat on the bench for the next 3/4 years he would be wasting the best part of his career! good luck [except for when you play against us ]
