Newcastle United Centre-Back Could Be On His Way

9 years ago

There are reports today that recently promoted Cardiff City are interested in signing on e of Newcastle’s centre-backs.

The Welsh club are reported to be interested in Mike Williamson and a fee of around £2m is speculated.

The reports in the Evening Chronicle say that Newcastle would be willing to let Williamson go and the Cardiff manager, Malky Mackay, has previously worked with our centre-half so knows all about him.

I think the general view amongst Newcastle fans is that Williamson comes over as a canny bloke who tries his best but isn’t really up to playing week in week out in the Premier League.

With reports linking the likes of Williamson and Perch with potential moves, it has echoes of last close season when players who weren’t seen as first eleven sure starters were sold off and funded the minimal expenditure last summer – Best, Lovenkrands, Smith, Forster all allowed to leave and balancing the books, in terms of transfer fees and wages, with only Anita arriving.

No problems with likes of Perch and Willo moving on but god help us if we only sign another Anita this summer.
