Newcastle Keeping Tabs On English Center-Back


Brighton manager and former Liverpool great Sami Hyypia expects Lewis Dunk to attract some big clubs in the January transfer window, with one of them being Newcastle United, who have following this player since back in early 2012.

Lewis Dunk _20120804

Lewis Dunk – Newcastle interested

The 6’4″ defender is just 22, and he has been attracting a lot of attention with his good performances for his home town club Brighton.

The big center-back made his debut for Brighton back in May of 2010 when just 18 years old,  and since then he has played 82 times for the first team with 5 goals, all scored this season.

The two clubs said to be interested the most in Lewis are Newcastle and Tottenham, with Newcastle likely to want to strengthen the squad in the January transfer window.

It seems that Graham Carr’s team have been watching the impressive young  Englishman, and Newcastle may make a bid for him in January.

This is what Brighton manager Sami Hyypia has said:

“I’m very happy that he is playing well and he has been a very important player for us.”

“I would be surprised if the interest wasn’t there,  but I hope he stays here and keeps playing like he’s playing. It’s very important you keep your best players.”

“I know it’s not always easy to do that and the players sometimes have different ideas or goals they want to achieve,  but we are trying to do everything we can to keep the best players here.”

Dunk certainly fits the bill for players Newcastle like to sign – and he’s at the right age and looks a very promising player,  who will only get better if Newcastle can sign him.

What do you think?

    You’d need to have a lobotomy to be upbeat about Newcastle as things stand. The negativity is merely the highly understandable flip side to the joy and passion you see when the side is doing well, and yet it pales next to the overwhelming patience of fans who deserve far better.

    Why do we deserve better though? we have achieved nothing in the last 10-11 years or so, havent won a title or cup in an even longer time?

    See by saying we deserve better you automatically think we are entitled to something, when in reality we have been a club in decline for a longtime now.

    I’m not upbeat at all about our season so far, we have had nothing to be upbeat about for a year or so but what is constant negativity from the fans and constant abuse going to change/achieve? absolutely nothing. just support your team for their next game and get on with it

    Don’t you think such a massive and loyal fan base deserves better than to be given a set up that can realistically have little hope beyond simply treading water. And don’t you think the ownership could do better if it wanted to. I don’t think Newcastle provide real value for money on the price of a ticket, and wouldn’t even get close if it weren’t for the contributions of their opponents, who are often representing clubs with less going for them.

    I agree we don’t provide value for money, i agree we deserve better, simply because this is my club and like any fan i want my club to be the best they can be.

    I don’t agree simply because we have a massive fan base we are therefore entitled to success. A Huge fanbase doesnt equal success.

    We are a work in progress,a club in transition… unless a multi multi billionaire asian oil tycoon comes in and suddenly starts spending 500 million in 1 transer window we can’t expect to attract the best talent in the world, which is the only way we can achieve success, we have to buy the next best thing compared to the top 6-7 teams and those type of players don’t bring titles. Getting rid of pardew won’t change this. Even though just like everyone else, i beleive we deserve better than pardew as well, but be realistic, C’mon.

    Dulcerina – If there are so many loathsome people on here why continue to use the site to converse with them…….that sounds idiotic……unless you’re just another internet wum.

    Nobody “respects” you because you come on drunk every weekend and abuse people.

    Then you cry about “clicks” and “gangs” when you get some abuse back.

    Don’t give it out if you can’t take it back.

    To be perfectly honest, there was a decent discussion going on between Jimmy Smith and Dulcinera with both making very relevant and sensible points before the insults started.

    It is probably the main reason why I post rarely on this blog these days.

    I’m not drunk tonight, fair enough i’ve been drunk most times i’ve been on this blog, but i think you will find most of my comments to begin with have been tolerable to begin with but its the replys to my comments which have sent me off to another level Of attack.

    Friends have been made on this blog over a period of time, i accept that, by my views should be as welcome as any other without critisicm, this is a public blog. Not a blog for negative fans to be totalitarian with their views
