Newcastle’s Interest In Belgian International Reported

8 years ago

With only the on loan capture of Loic Remy in the summer, the popular belief is that Newcastle will sign at least one or two much needed players in January.

There are claims in various media this morning that United are interested in bringing in another centre back in January…on loan.

The player in question is Thomas Vermaelen and it is claimed a loan move could suit all parties.

The Belgian defender is desperate for games to make sure of his World Cup squad place in Brazil and this season he has only made two starts in the League Cup, none in the Premier League.

It is believed Arsenal may be ready to let him go out on loan but with a recall clause, while Newcastle would be happy to take the cultured defender with no commitment to a transfer fee or long-term wages.

It is reported that Joe Kinnear has watched Vermaelen twice in the last month which I take it must have included his latest appearance for Belgium against Wales.
