Newcastle Reported After Championship Winger

7:39 pm, Thursday, December 31st, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 9 Comments

The Mail is reporting that Wolves winger 20 year-old Jordan Graham is attracting the attention of Newcastle United – who will try to bring some good players to Tyneside next month, in order to strengthen the squad and have a much better chance of avoiding relegation in May.

Graham joined Aston Villa back in 2002 and came through their Youth Academy and left only this summer for Wolves after spending loan spells at Ipswich and Bradford City before going on loan last season to Wolves.

Jordan Graham after scoring first goal for Wolves on Monday

Jordan was sent on a month-long loan to League Two side Oxford United in September but was recalled by manager Kenny Jackett because of an injury crisis.

Since he returned to Wolves he has played very well and has attracted the attention of some Premier League clubs and Wolves want to tie the youngster down to a long term deal at Molineux.

The news today is that Newcastle, Liverpool and Norwich are interested in signing the youngster next month – and that could make it difficult for Wolves to retain the 20 year-old.

Since he returned from his short loan spell at Oxford United (6 appearances), he scored his first goal earlier this week for Wolves at Charlton Athletic in the second half.

The youngster has looked impressive in his eight appearances and we assume that if Graham is brought to Newcastle next month, he would be one for the future.

What do you think?

Comments welcome.

    We need experience and pace. If we are going to but championship wingers we need about 10 to make sure we get a good one. It’s false economy. Yet another lesson Mr Ashley has not learned. It’s not socks equals socks it’s more complicated.

    He’s just been recalled from loan at Oxford United and scored his first goal for Wolves on Monday night – this story makes no sense !

    Willo to Wolves and young Jordan Graham coming in?

    Err, is that too much for Charnley to work around so everybody’s happy?

    The lad might not be an experienced CB and ready for the first team yet so with Willo gone, there’s one free place in the squad.

    Get cracking Charnley, we’re waiting for some leadership from you……

    Sign him up looks a good lad probably better equipped for the Premier League than expensive foreign imports from lower leagues

    Apart from the normal shite having a bitch with one another and some bloke wanting to wear a Gateshead shirt and stop going to the games there are those on here who write constructive comments. I do agree with the comment on the midfield being too slow. I think Colback, Anita and Tiote have something to offer but to put them in the same engine room does nothing for the dynamics of the team. The problem is however that McClaren knows fine well that his defence is poor so he compensates rightly or wrongly by putting an extra defensive player in there to protect them. Consequently the forwards suffer. If I was to spend 20 million I’d by a proven defender to step straight into the team thus releasing Gini into the middle alongside one of those three and my choice would be Tiote. I would keep Mitro where he is with Perez as the No 10 and bring Thauvin in and give him a good run in the team with Sissoko on the other side. I think the quality is there but the manager has to be allowed this transfer window to try and put right the wrongs done before him. Unlike some I think we will buy big in this window simply because relegation is not an option for a business man like Ashley.
    Happy New a Year and keep the faith regardless
