There are reports surfacing that Newcastle may after all go after Geordie boy Danny Graham, who like Andy Carroll, was born in Gateshead and is an avid Newcastle fan.
Danny Graham - yes – Newcastle are coming after me!!
Sunderland have been interested in the player, but Sunderland fans are just a little bit wary of signing a Geordie, although manager Martin O’Neill has tried to quell their fears.
But with so little talent available now that we have missed out on Loic Remy – we think Danny would be a solid signing for the Magpies – and of course his heart would be in Newcastle – there’s no doubt about that.
It seems that both Sunderland and Norwich City have already put in £4M bids for the 5’11″ striker, but Swansea would like to get a little bit more for the man they signed for £3.5M from Watford a short eighteen months ago.
The news is that Alan Pardew has changed his mind about the striker, and Newcastle may now launch a bid for the 27 year-old Gateshead man – now there seems so little striker talent available in January.
Sunderland are in the lead for the striker at the moment, but if Newcastle do make a bid, expect the Geordie lad to push for a move to his home-town club, and we think Danny could help us a lot in the remaining months of the season.
Newcastle will need to move quickly if they are really interested in Danny Graham – and we hope they are.
Howay The Lads!!
