Newcastle Linked With Move For Premier League Winger

9 years ago

On the basis that I would never rule out anything happening these days, reports of a Newcastle move for a Premier League winger have to be taken seriously.

While the rumours can’t be totally ignored, on this occasion I really hope there is no foundation to this particular bit of summer speculation.

It is Talksport amongst others who reporting that Newcastle are interested in signing 31 year old Matt Taylor from West Ham.

It is claimed both Joe Kinnear and Alan Pardew are keen on the Hammers’ player but with Alan Pardew well under the radar recently I’m not sure how they’ve found that out.

If Taylor was signed then at least we’d know that Kinnear has at least X amount of power as clearly there would be no resale value. Apart from Taylor’s age and relative lack of ability, the fact he has managed just two goals over the last two years isn’t exactly encouraging.

Sad thing is that my expectations have become so trampled in recent weeks that I don’t rule this sort of signing out totally.
