There were reports coming out of France over the weekend that Ghana international winger Andre Ayew had decided to join Roma when he leave Marseilles this summer, when his contract runs out and he becomes a free agent.
Andre Ayew – Newcastle target this summer
There was a report in French daily L’Equipe on Saturday that said Ayew was ready to join Roma, and all that was necessary was to complete the formalities of the paper-work and the deal would be done.
But on his Twitter account Andre has denied these rumors:
“In the light of what I’ve read and heard, I would like to inform you that I have not yet taken a decision on my future.”
Andre has made no secret of the fact he would like to join Liverpool – which is what he has called a dream move – and there was even news last week that a deal had been agreed with The Reds, but that has also been denied.
There are a host of clubs after the free agent and as well as Newcastle they include Liverpool, Swansea, Borussia Dortmund, Wolfsburg, Bayer Leverkusen, Schalke, Inter Milan and Roma.
There are some big clubs in that list.
With the huge problems Newcastle are having this year, we’d be very surprised if Andre would come to Newcastle United – even given we are still a Premier League club in the summer.
Andre is thought to be waiting until the end of the season before making his decision as to which club he will sign for.
Whatever happens in the last four games of the season, Newcastle will find it difficult to attract any really good players to the club this summer.
Why would they ever want to join Newcastle with all the troubles we have in the way the club is run these days?
