Newcastle Interest In German International Revived
Early in December we brought you news of Newcastle linked with a move for German international midfielder, Aaron Hunt of Werder Brenen.
Now there are reports in Germany that United may follow up the interest for a player who will be out of contract in the summer and who has now been quoted as saying that his future is likely to be abroad.
Hunt has spent the whole of his career at the German club but as yet has not signed a new contract and is expected to leave either in January or see out his contract in June.
The 27 year old midfielder has played a handful of times for the German national team and indeed turned down interest from England, who he could have played for with his mother coming from over here.
Hunt has scored some forty goals from a midfield spot for Werder Bremen and last season registered his best ever return with 11 league goals.
There is also a local link as the player’s grandfather went to school locally with Bobby Charlton.
Easy to see why a goalscoring international midfielder, who is shortly out of contract, might interest Mike Ashley. However, even if Newcastle do have serious interest in Hunt, they will face competition from a number of other clubs for his services.
With Newcastle desperate for goals, somebody who can do so from midfield would be a major help. Summing up his immediate future, Hunt has had this to say;
“I’m not saying that I will definitely leave the Bundesliga but if there is a move then I think it would likely be to another country.
“After the winter break we’ll accelerate the talks and I want to know by Ferbuary where I am heading.
“If Werder are pushing for a quick decision then I’ll be ready to do so.”
