We don’t know how true the story is that Newcastle and West Ham are both after Celta Vigo winger Michael Krohn-Dehli – maybe the Hammers are but we find it hard to believe the Magpies would be interested.
Michael Krohn-Dehli – Celta Vigo and Denmark winger
But there is one thing that would suggest this story is inaccurate and that is the Denmark winger is 31 years old, and Newcastle like to sign players 26 years old or younger and certainly not over 30.
With young wingers like Sammy Ameobi, Rolando Aarons and Callum Roberts coming through the ranks, why would we want a 31 year-old winger brought into the club?
The high priority in January is for a striker and a center-back – simply because we are very short of talent in those two specific positions.
Michael has 47 caps for Denmark – and he is a free agent in the summer, so he could be brought in for a nominal fee this month – but we are almost 100% certain there’s no way this player will be arriving on Tyneside.
A much better option for Newcastle would be AC Milan’s M’Baye Niang, who is also a free agent in the summer, and we have already been linked with an interest in buying the 20 year-old this month.
There will be a number of stories in January linking Newcastle with players we are just not interested in – this is one of them.
What do you think?
