The days of Newcastle paying big fees for players may be over, but Alan Pardew, the Newcastle manager is not so certain, and he says that could still be possible in the future.
Alan Pardew – big signings still possible a Newcastle
In his interview with the Evening Chronicle today, Alan was asked if there could still be a chance of a major signing in the future, and he had this to say:
“Of course there is, if we think we are getting value for money.” “There is no way we will sign an £8million player who is 28. I know that, so there is no point me looking at them.”
“But if there’s a 22-year-old at £11M who has potential and I can convince him there is a £30M player there, it could be different.”
“We still need to work within our budget and with the market we’ve got, we are probably on an even keel at the moment – with a good team.”
It seems that all the Newcastle owner Mike Ashley is after is value for money, and as Alan says he would like pay out around £11M if the value if the player could triple in a few years – who wouldn’t?
The good news earlier today was that it seems Graham Carr and the scouting staff are in high gear to scout players for January – and we’d love to see a couple of top defenders come in.
And then in the summer maybe a young striker that Newcastle are willing to pay out £11 for?
Come to think of it Newcastle brought in a certain Papiss Cisse for almost £10M last January, and Papiss has since scored 15 goals for Newcastle.
Sounds good to us.
