NUFC Target ‘New Shearer’? – Goals Video

10 years ago

Press reports are linking Newcastle United with 19 year old Swedish striker John Guidetti.

Guidetti is currently on loan at Feyenoord from Manchester City and even though only a teenager, he has hit 18 goals in only 16 matches, including 3 hat-tricks!

The player has apparently indicated that if he isn’t closer to the first team by this summer then he’d prefer to move elsewhere for regular starts. He looks a quality prospect and of course there would be plenty clubs interested if he became available, if Newcastle United did land him it would be a massive statement of intent as in speculating on future potential. A bit like Arsenal pushing the boat out for the likes of Walcott and Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Guidetti has already had a bit of an interesting life despite his tender years, his paternal grandfather is Italian and his maternal grandfather is Brazilian. Guidetti has lived in Kenya on two occasions during the time that his father, Mike, worked with a Swedish school project in Nairobi. Guidetti credits playing football with older children from the poorer slum areas of Nairobi as an important step in his development on and off the field.

At just over 6ft he maybe has the hint of a bit of a Shearer, watch this cracking video from The Mag’s YouTube Channel and make your own mind up.
