Newcastle Challenge Liverpoool For Center-Back


Newcastle United were reported to be checking on 19 year-old Coventry City defender Cian Harries in the 3-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion last night in the EFL Trophy.

Well known Newcastle scout Graham Carr was there to check on the young defender and that news is being reported today in the Coventry Telegraph.

Cian Harries – Coventry City’s 19 year-old center-back

Liverpool scouts were also there last night and the Reds are thought to be the club leading the chase for the teenager, who has  recently been on trial at Liverpool and was even expected to sign for them.

On 4th January this year Harries played a trial match for the Liverpool U23s team against Bangor City in a friendly game.

The 6ft 1ins center-back was born in Birmingham and came through the Academy at the Sky Blues.

He signed his first contract in July 2015 on a three year deal, but earlier this season he signed a new and improved contact which keeps him at the club through June, 2020.

Harries is of Welsh descent and has played 13 times this season for Coventry City.

Newcastle are always on the lookout for top young talent we can bring into the club and have Rafa Benitez and his coaching team hopefully bring the youngsters through to the first team on Tyneside.

What do you think?

    I’m confident a player or two will come in, but have no idea who. I feel that we will not go above 10 mil, and that would have to be a starter. Otherwise, thinking they are looking for growth, and want to stay under 5.

    Lesh, Bill. Right, every single time today. Coincidence you say? Yeah, so do I but it’s a cracker innit? Wonder what odds you could get on that happening four times. Scary. Right, that’s it. This blog is haunted and I’m out of here.
    Not really, got a few notifications I need to look at but the haunted thing sounds better. Later chaps, Thanx for the enjoyable exchanges. Top class. Latwr

    I’m sure we’d miss jib if he left the blog there’d be far less entertainment 🙂 every now and then he goes on an offensive but then occasionally he can suddenly make a self-effacing and contrite comment that is strangely disarming. But then he’s off on a other offensive. And normal service resumes lol. Handy to have around in a Google fight though. 😀

    So Jib and Jail are still missing? Maybe they have gone on holiday together. Anyhow, when jail gets back can someone remind him I need 10 points adding to my Rafa Bingo score.

    Perhaps this is like Agatha Christie’s Ten Little Indians. Two down – who will be next?

    Ron, do you reckon they will let us nominate? If so, I nominate Tsunki for no other reason than he ruined my bacon sandwich moment several months ago.

    I think they’ve both run off to Ed to blast each others and Ed got sick of them and banished them to the fourth dimension. Somewhere near Barrow-in-Furness I’ve heard.
