James Perch – Wigan put in formal bid

The report says that Wigan are waiting for a response from Newcastle, and of course Newcastle need to decide whether they will sell James this summer or lose him as a free agent next summer when his four-year deal runs out.

And James may be one of those players that new Director of Football Joe Kinnear says isn’t good enough to be at the club, but James is solid player who can play in many different positions, and he’s proved that since signing on from Nottingham Forest in the summer of 2010.

He’s an excellent squad player and after a difficult first season, he has played well over the last two seasons, and we’d like to see him stay on Tyneside.

For the record, James has played 81 times for Newcastle with one goal in his three seasons on Tyneside, but he’s also picked up 21 yellow cards.
