Newcastle United are interested in signing 19 year-old midfielder Ryan Christie from Inverness Caledonian Thistle, if reports coming out of Scotland recently are to be believed.
Ryan Christie – 19 year-old Inverness midfielder
Ryan is the son of Charlie Christie, who was a top midfielder at the same club for ten years from 1994, and was manager of the club from 2006-2007.
Ryan was born in Inverness, and joined the Inverness Caledonian Thistle youth system as a youngster, and eventually made his debut for the club in the Scottish Premiership match against Celtic in late December of last year.
He has made 17 appearances with 4 goals so far, and he has caught the eye in Scotland, and Newcastle United and Sunderland are two of several Premier League clubs said to be interested in signing the midfielder.
And after his impressive displays this year for the club, Inverness managed to finish in 5th place in the Scottish Premier League with 57 points from their 38 games, bust still 42 points behind Champions Celtic.
Ryan signed a new deal at the Inverness club at the end of last season, that will keep him there for the next couple of years.
It’s important that Newcastle sign these types of players, who have massive potential when they are young, and we hope the club can be successful in beating other top clubs to the 19 years-old.
