With all the players that could be leaving Newcastle this summer, the Tyneside club may need to bring in a number of new players this summer, so Newcastle need to get going identifying their potential targets for the summer, and we assume Chief Scout Graham Carr is very busy scouting players at the moment.
Aaron Hunt – 27 year-old Werder Bremen midfielder
After all, it’s possible that players like Loic Remy, Shola Ameobi, Sylvain Marveaux, Jonas Gutierrez, Ben Arfa, Dan Gosling, Gabby Obertan, Fab Coloccini, Davide Santon, Steven Taylor and Papiss Cisse could all leave Newcastle in the summer.
And the club are always on the lookout for free transfers, and Newcastle know which players will become free agents two years out, and one of them that we are being continually linked with is 27 year-old German International Aaron Hunt.
The left footed attacking midfielder is out of contract with Werder Bremen at the end of June, and the clubs said to be interested in the player are Newcastle, Southampton and Tottenham.
With no Director of Football at Newcastle currently, Secretary Lee Charnley and Finance Director John Irving are the main men involved with transfers at the moment – so we hope they are very busy.
Hunt joined Bremen in 2001 and he made his first team debut in September 2004, as a substitute against Hannover 96, shortly after turning 18.
Having a German father and an English mother, Aaron could have played for either Germany or England – but elected to play for all the German youth sides, and he has three full caps for Germany.
The 6′ midfielder has played 253 times for his Bundesliga club and scored 65 goals with 40 assists, which is a good record.
We think this player would be a good signing for Newcastle this summer, and this summer could be water-shed transfer window for Newcastle, with the squad changing big time before September.
