Today’s transfer speculation round up.

Beckham rumoured to be interesting Newcastle.
Well it is that time of the year again, which I and many others call silly season. The transfer window brings with it a whole host of rumours and links to players moving between clubs, but in reality most of it passes by without ever becoming true. Which is why I thought that perhaps the best way to address all of these rumours is by combining them into one piece wherever I can. As you are probably aware, this is Newcastle United, and we are seldom short on potential signings, if you listen to the press anyway.

First up is the news that Newcastle could be in line to take David Beckham on loan from LA Galaxy, and steal him from underneath the noses of Tottenham Hotspur. The Journal believes that Newcastle are interested in the player, but I believe that any notion of signing the former England captain is fanciful at best.

Interestingly, that same article suggests that Newcastle have actually bid for Robbie Keane, which would add to our striking options and is something that Alan Pardew has hinted that he will be looking at.

Perhaps the most telling part of that is the bit where Pardew says that he has spoken to Tottenham and that both clubs are looking to move in the transfer market. Perhaps a double deal for Robbie Keane and David Bentley could be on the cards after all?

Who knows? Perhaps a move for Adel Taarabt from QPR could float your boat? Well according to the Daily Mail, a move could be on the cards for the QPR captain who has scored 11 goals in 23 games so far this season.

Taarabt is highly rated by a lot of people and it seems only a matter of time before he is playing Premier League football. The problem here is that QPR look as though they could very well be playing Premier League football as early as next season, so perhaps Adel will want to stay put in show the team that has given him the chance to flourish a bit of loyalty.

Interestingly, the same paper has us down as being interested in Valeri Bojinov. The former Manchester City striker would bolster our attack, but I also feel that we could do a bit better. Put it this way, who would you rather have? Robbie Keane or Valeri Bojinov?

Stephane Sessegnon is another name that is being linked with us. The Daily Mail reports that the PSG midifelder could be on his way to us after falling out with his current boss. Apparently, Sessegnon spat the dummy after being swore at in training by his current boss, which caused the French midfielder to launch into an expletive-filled rant to the French press and claiming that he will never play for PSG again. Sounds like a lovely chap….

I think that just about covers all of the rumours from the press so far today. I’m sure there will be more though, so if you hear of anything let us know!

  10. Yeah, I tried to get numbered posts on here but the plugin isn’t compatible with this layout. The I tried to fiddle with the CSS and done it but it looked crap so I binned it off.

    I plan on changing some colour tones anyway to make things a bit more prominent whilst keeping things kind of crisp looking. Just so the difference is easier to see basically.

  11. 980 x 80 is the size for this one, but the 80 can be made bigger. If you make the 980 bigger it will balls up on certain browsers/monitors.
