Tottenham Winger Offered To Newcastle

News that Aaron Lennon of Tottenham, who was one a target of Newcastle’s some years ago, is set to leave the London club in January, as it seems the Leeds-born winger is not part of Tottenham’s plans under new manager Mauricio Pochettino, who did so well in his short time at Southampton.

Aaron Lennon – offered to Newcastle – available in January

It’s interesting that Pochettino is the eighth manager (not including caretaker managers) Levy has appointed at Spurs since he replaced Alan Sugar as Chairman of Tottenham in February of 2001, and five of those have been in the last seven years.

That compares with the seven managers Freddy Shepherd appointed at Newcastle during his 10 year reign as Newcastle Chairman, from December, 1996 until Mike Ashley bought the club in June, 2007.

Although Aaron Lennon seems to have been around for ages (348 Spurs appearances with 30 goals – 21 England caps) is still only 27, so even fits into the age group of the players Newcastle like to buy these days, and he’s English.

Aaron also has plenty of Premier League experiences with 272 games and 26 goals.

There were reports earlier this week that Tottenham were trying to unload the winger before the window closed, and that his former manager Harry Redknapp – always on the lookout for players to strengthen QPR – was in for him, but Aaron wanted to stay at Spurs and fight for his place.

The reports suggest that Spurs made contact with a number of clubs and offered Lennon to them near the end of the window – and those clubs included West Ham, Everton and Newcastle, but we didn’t take up the offer.

That’s maybe because his wages were too high, or that Alan Pardew didn’t see him fitting into the side.

Lennon still has a couple of years left on his contract, and Spurs are keen to get something for him, before he becomes a free agent in July of 2016.

We hope that the seven new players we have brought into the squad for this season, will all come good and that we do well this season.

But there’s also a possibility we could be struggling a little bit by January, so we have to think that Graham Carr for planning purposes (just in case), is scouring  the market looking for a couple of players we could bring in during the January transfer window – should we need to do that.

Maybe Aaron Lennon could be one of those players?

What do you think?

    With the window just shut, it’s time to give us all a rest from transfer speculation, which only disappoints anyway.

    Just read this someone put of twitter:

    The last 20 Premier League managers sacked all had a better record than Pardew.


    He really is the luckiest manager around and should never have been qualified to get the job in the first place.

    There also seems to be people saying, like Stuart did, that they are getting a ticket to show support for Hatem and their dislike for Pardew and the regime.

    The storm is growing, Alan

    If we get absolutely banjoed by soton, and I fully expect that to be the case. Alan will have a torrid time next home game.

    Ye I’m sick of it all now. Seasons started. Pardews still manager. Get over it. I’m all for pardew and don’t really understand the negativity the past year or so. He’s passionate and cares for Newcastle. I hope he stays. Anyone who disagrees crack on with your comments about it. Just do it on another blog

    We didn’t buy Lennon because he is not a left back. Oh! wait. I wonder if we could convert…
    After all, we need more right footed left backs, don’t we?
    Bring back Benny.

    And who would you leave out to put Lennon in? One Aaron is enough for any team.
