There are some reports today that Nicky Butt may wish to leave Newcastle United.
Nicky Butt – considering his options
Nicky Butt may be concerned that a mas exodus is about to occur at Newcastle. With the sale of Martins, and the everyday links of Sebastien Bassong, Butt seems to be worried that Newcastle will have a threadbare side going into the season.
Other players that have been linked with a move or expressed interest are Fabricio Coloccini, Jonas Gutierrez, Steve Taylor, and Jose Enrique. However, Steven Taylor is totally committed to his hometown side.
I don’t think Nicky Butt leaving would anger too many fans.
In fact only the loss of Bassong and Beye would be seen as detrimental since they have both performed very well for Newcastle.
