Latest Newcastle Transfer News Exclusive By Mike Ashley

8 years ago

The latest Newcastle transfer news rubbish cobbled together as an ‘exclusive’ by Mike Ashley’s S***** D***** News, is that Newcastle are going to go ‘head to head’ with Manchester United for a Premier League centre-back.

So the story goes, Alan Pardew will fight it out with David Moyes for Joleon Lescott’s signature, with the 31 year old claimed to be worried because of the impending return of Vincent Kompany.

While Newcastle’s defence undoubtedly needs more strength in depth, exactly what fight we could offer Manchester United  in terms of either wages or ambition is laughable.

Maybe just as laughable as the idea of Mike Ashley going anywhere near matching Lescott’s City style wages.

I think on balance I don’t believe this signing is likely to happen…

However, you do have to wonder at the motivation of Mike Ashley in his news service putting out these rubbish exclusives.

I suppose ridiculous stories claiming Newcastle are going to buy established Premier League players on big wages at least gives us a rest from SD News trying to flog our best players.
