Are Newcastle Interested In Wolves’ David Jones?

There is news today that Newcastle may be interested in Wolves 25 year-old central midfielder David Jones.

David Jones – are Newcastle interested in this player?

The former Manchester United midfielder signed a three year deal for Wolves in June 2008, when he was singed from Derby County for a reported fee of £1.2M.

The impressive Wolves midfielder was offered a new deal by manager Mick McCarthy towards the end of last season, but talks have stalled, and the 25-year-old is now into the final year of his contract at Molineux.

It wouldn’t surprise us if Newcastle are monitoring the situation with a view to picking up Jones next summer as a free agent, or even in January for a nominal fee.

American goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann, talked about David:

“David has been great for us; he’s technically so good and came up with a brilliant free-kick for our first goal against Stoke.”

“Obviously we want him to stay as he’s a great creative player for us and we will need all of those qualities this season.”

Newcastle will already have their transfer targets identified for January when some new players will be expected to be brought in to further enhance the playing staff at the Newcastle club, and while there will not be too much money to spend, Newcastle are always on the look-out for a good deal under owner Mike Ashley.

The Magpies have made quite a few of them this year including getting Sol Campbell and Dan Gosling at the club on free transfers over the summer.

The Southport-born 5’11” player has played on loan at Preston North End, NEC Nijmegen and Derby County, before he signed for Derby from the Red Devils in January of 2007 for £1M.

He has so far played around 65 times for Wolves.

    We seriously should not be looking at strengthening in midfield. Well, it should at least not be a priority.

    Why would we want yet another midfielder in the team, unless we’re looking at shipping out some of the, lets say older, over paid midfielders we currently have on our books.. mmmmm

    Can’t see why this guy would be an improvement on what we have currently either, so I think it’s just another crap-loid wind up personally… 🙁

    Hope this is Rubbish – you’d then have Smith, Guthrie, Barton, Gosling & Tiote competing for 2 places! not to mention Nolan and young Vuckic!

    As i said in my last piece the current competition is great but lets not overdo it, especially with some one who just isnt as good as what we have (imo)

    Pacey striker to play off Carroll PLEASE, not some crap midfielder who is only being noticed because of a single free-kick he scored.

    We need a supporting striker or striker itself would be good.
    Not some decent striker but someone who have PL exp,someone like keane.

    If Keane is still sittin on the bench come crimbo I reckon he’ll come. Wouldnt blame him for not moving during the last window as in fairness to the lad he’s been all over the place in the last few years so im sure he just wants to prove a point at spurs.

    Somehow Keane won’t be coming as Defoe is out for 6 weeks, which will get him back into the fold at the Spurts & floppychops won’t let him go out on loan in Jan just incase another one of his strikers gets injured,.. so forget about Keane & try & find another name we can hope to get!!!

    Btw, the transfer window has just closed, why are we looking at Jan already???

    Cause we should always be looking at the next window as soon as the old one closes if not before

    Oh I know the team should be but does that mean we the fans also have to do it too, isn’t there enough stories out there to warrant a blog being written about them, that we can just leave the team to get on with searching for new players, as the last thing I want to start doing now is trying to guess who we may or may not be bringing into the club in another 4 months!!!

    We can start talking about transfer around December, not September or by January, we’re going to be going off our heads with this sort of thing, starting it so early!!! just my opinion 🙂

    Personally, I’d like to see us flog Shola and Xisco (unless Xisco starts to show better form, or turns out to be a wing wizard, you never know!!!) and ship in one small pacey mother to belt balls around up front with Carroll.

    Keane may be getting on a bit, but he can still bang in 10+ a season. Frankly, I’d like someone a little younger, but I wouldn’t complain if we managed to get Keane. Any ideas for another small pacey striker?

    With back up from Lovenkrands (who I still think has a lot to offer in the EPL and is still pretty nippy for) and Ranger (who I’d like to see more of this season), we’d be pretty well made up.

    Didn’t Shola sign a new contract fairly recently for good wages?

    If that’s the case he wont be going anywhere for a few years! Shame cos I just can’t see him setting the PL on fire, although I would love him to prove me wrong!!

    Floppychops! excellent!

    Would like to see Ben Arfa playing off Carroll, But where would Nolan fit in then? I think CH has some right tough decisions coming up! It’ll be interesting to see how he handles it and how certain players react to being dropped etc…
