According to talkSPORT Newcastle are supposed to hold an interest in West Ham United’s Mark Noble, and Alan Pardew gave Mark his first team debut in August of 2004, when the Newcastle manager was managing West Ham.
Mark Noble – Newcastle interested?
Of course we could be linked with a number of central midfielders now through February, just in case a club comes in with big money for Yohan Cabaye, but we cannot see a January move before the World Cup being a good move for the Frenchman.
High flying Everton are also linked with the player, who has been in good form for the Hammers this season, even though the east London club are struggling and are currently 4th bottom of the league with only 13 points from 15 games.
The news is that Alan Pardew rates him as a player, but Mark has never played for the full England side, although he played for all the England Youth sides, including 20 caps at England U21 level.
We cannot see much truth in this story, and as far as Newcastle are concerned we are probably being linked for a number of reasons – one is in case Yohan Cabaye leaves, and the second is that if West Ham are relegated Noble may want to leave, although he stayed with them when they were last relegated in May of 2011.
The third is that Alan Pardew is supposed to rate him highly, and he is also English, and Alan Pardew has said he would like more home based players in his Newcastle squad.
