We knew Aaron Mooy was a good player for Huddersfield last season and that he could control the central midfield for the Terriers, so it was interesting when there was news from Australia this morning that both Newcastle and Crystal Palace had put in a bid for him.
We reported on the situation earlier today with Manchester City supposedly wanting £10M for somebody they paid only a few hundred thousand for last summer.
Other reports say he could be bought for £5M and that would be an excellent deal for Newcastle if we can get the 22 times Australian International for that fairly low.
Aaron Mooy – 26 year-old Huddersfield central midfielder
It’s up to Rafa Benitez to decide who he brings into the club and when it’s a Championship player we have to trust that Rafa knows a good player when he sees one and thta he can make the step up to the Premier League.
Here’s some of the comments on Twitter about the 26 year-old Australian International today from Geordie fans as the news broke that we had made a bid for him.
Yes we should probably be aiming for more PL experience but under £5M for Mooy is a very good deal. It’s about building a squad #nufc

In the last month #NUFC have been linked with Abraham and Mooy. If either happen I might just cry with happiness

If mooy is available for £10m then that is a proper steal. #nufc

Why are we being linked with Championship players like Cairney and Mooy? Championship is gone lads, move on, bigger fish to fry #nufc

Would like to see us sign Maguire, Robertson, Mooy, Cairney, King & Long. With a few obviously leaving. People’s thoughts? #NUFC
