Werder Bremen midfielder Aaron Hunt has been tracked by a number of clubs, and Newcastle are one of the clubs who have been continually linked with the 27 year-old German International this season.
Aaron Hunt - will decide future this month
And there is a report out today in the Mirror that says the German, who has an English mother and German father, will decide his future by the end of March.
But surprisingly Newcastle are not among the two clubs mentioned in the Mirror report as suitors of the experienced midfielder.
Stoke City and Southampton are said to be the two Premier League clubs wanting to sign the the player, who will become a free agent in the summer, and Hunt is quoted as saying:
“I’m exploring all options and will decide where I will be this month.”
Stoke manager Mark Hughes was wanting the midfielder last summer, when the £2.5M bid he made was flatly turned down by his club, Werder Bremen, and Mark has a good record of signing decent players.
The German club are keen to keep their player, and they have already offered him a new four year deal, and we suppose that offer will be considered before Aaron makes his final decision.
While it seems Newcastle will have a big transfer kitty available this summer, they will also want to pick up some bargain buys (as usual), and Newcastle know all about which free agents will become available, at least a couple of years before their contracts run out.
It seems that as a free agent, Aaron would be a good signing for the club.
