Report – Rafa Could Soon Turn His Attention To This Right Winger

The Sun are reporting today that Rafa Benitez is trying to bring Andros Townsend back to Newcastle from Crystal Palace.

But if that bid fails, then he will try to sign Aston Villa right winger Albert Adomah.

Rafa also wants Kenedy on loan for the year from Chelsea with an option to buy the player next summer – so it seems the manager does want two new wingers coming in – which could mean Matt Ritchie leaves the club.

The 30-year-old right winger was born in Lambeth in London and joined Aston Villa two years ago after they had been relegated from the Premier League along with Newcastle and Norwich City.

He joined them after three years at Middlesbrough, so he has played before in the north-east.

Apart from 2016-2017 in the Premier League with Middlesbrough who were relegated that season – he’s played all his football in the lower leagues of England so he could seem an odd choice for Rafa.

The 6ft 1 ins tall player can also play as a striker.

In his two years in the Championship with Villa he’s scored 18 goals and 18 assists in 83 games – so he’s been involved in 36 goals for Villa in 83 games.

He’s played 18 times for Ghana with two goals and made his debut back in September 2011 at Craven Cottage in the 1–0 defeat to Brazil.

And with Villa in financial trouble, we could get him for a bargain buy this summer – if we cannot get Townsend.

What do you think?

    Here’s a novel idea. Why not talk football on a football blog instead of using it for personal insults? Daft idea I know, but I’m pretty sure that’s what it’s for.

    Bobby why do you dislike the Eng manager? He seems pretty harmless, on the outside anyway? Can’t say I know a lot about him beyond Boro etc. BTW I don’t hate Rafa, I think he’s a class act.

    You didn’t have the courtesy to reply to my question about Ashley!
    Please enlighten me; Maybe you have inside knowledge that Rafa is to be handed 100 mil to spend and that he is about to sign the 5 year contract!
    Or do you consider him a guarantee of safety and mediocrity ?
