Newcastle were linked last summer with 20 year-old Inverness CT play-maker Ryan Christie, and the Tyneside club is again being linked with the player today.
Ryan Christie – Inverness 20 year-old play-maker
The attacking midfielder is said to be a target of several Premier League clubs and they include Newcastle United and Everton, and the fee being talked about is a low £1M to get him away from the Scottish club – although the youngster said in February he wanted to stay at Inverness.
Ryan has played 37 times this season with 4 goals and 3 assists, and he made his club debut in the Scottish Premier League match against Celtic in December, 2013 at age 18.
In total the attacking midfielder has appeared for Inverness 54 times with 7 goals and 3 assists since then.
He 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.
Inverness were 5th in the Scottish Premier league last season and they are currently in 3rd place this season.
It’s important that Newcastle sign these young players who have massive potential.
Newcastle are in with a decent chance of getting this 20 year-old in the summer.
