Claims That Newcastle Have Bid £4m For Centre-Back

8 years ago

Reports this morning that Newcastle United have gone in with another bid, this time of £4m, to seal a deal for FC Twente’s centre-back, Douglas.

A seemingly long-term Newcastle target, the claim by Setanta Sports also reports that the Brazilian (soon to be Dutch) defender has been offered a £40,000 a week deal.

The player only has 12 months of his contract to run but if he has ambition then you would expect him to take the chance of a move to Newcastle and the English Premier League if it is on the table.

Alan Pardew has demanded goals from all around the team and only two goals from his defenders in the whole of last season is simply not good enough. Especially when Ryan Taylor’s two rakers weren’t exactly typical defender style strikes!

With only one goal scored last season from corners, the 6ft 3 defender would ceratinly be a bonus in that department.

If you need inspiration for a birthday (or any kind of) present why not get them the new DVD, or something equally class from The Mag’s Amazon Store, or why not treat yourself!
