Newcastle were first interested in Ipswich Town defender Aaron Cresswell last August, and we were again linked with the left-back last month.
Aaron Cresswell – Newcastle interested
There’s a report in the Telegraph today indicating that newly promoted Leicester City, managed by former Newcastle coach Nigel Pearson, are also interested in the 24 year-old.
Other clubs apart from Newcastle who are also interested in the Liverpool-born defender include Crystal Palace, Burnley and Aston Villa, although Newcastle seem to be well covered at left back, with Davide Santon, Massadio Haidara and Paul Dummett in the ranks.
And all three of them are vying for the left-back spot on Tyneside with Haidara, the 21 year-old French U21 International, playing the last couple of league games in that position.
Cresswell seems like a good up-and-coming player but he’s never been capped by England at any level, and we would be surprised if Newcastle bring this lad in over the summer.
That’s unless the club decides to cash in on Davide Santon, but the Italian doesn’t want to leave the club,. and he’s made that fairly clear, as he now has a family on Tyneside.
Aaron was in the PFA Championship Team of the Season side announced earlier this year, and he’s played 118 times with 7 goals for Ipswich, after joining them from local club Tranmere Rovers back in 2011, where he played 80 times with 6 goals.
We would be surprised if Newcastle sign this lad over the summer.
