Newcastle were said to be interested in 27 year-old German International Aaron Hunt in January.
Aaron Hunt – Werder Bremen attacking midfielder
Hunt is out of contract in June and he has been in negotiations with Werder Bremen about a new deal, but it seems no agreement has been reached with the German club and other clubs have been able to contact Hunt and his agent since last month.
Hunt joined Bremen in 2001 as a youngster and he made his first team debut in September 2004, as a substitute against Hannover 96, just days after his 18th birthday.
Having a German father and an English mother, and being born in Goslar, West Germany – Aaron was eligible to play for both Germany or England – but being resident in Germany he elected to play for all the German youth sides, and he has three full caps for Germany.
There is news in the German magazine Bild today, that his club have offered him a new four year deal, but they want a decision on this by the end of March.
But Aaron’s delay in signing a new deal in Germany, could point to him wanting to become a free agent in the summer, and we’re sure Newcastle would be very keen to sign this talented attacking midfielder on a free transfer.
He has played 253 times for his Bundesliga club and scored 65 goals with 40 assists, which is not a bad record at all.
He would be a bargain buy for Newcastle, if we could get him on Tyneside as a free agent.
