Newcastle To Go Ginger?

8 years ago

Social networking sites have recently become mobbed with the rumours that current Sunderland midfielder Jack Colback is set to sign a pre-contract agreement with Newcastle United.

Many would grimace at the thought of a Mackem joining the ranks, though I think this could certainly be a coup!

Many Newcastle fans have voiced their desire for young English talent to be brought in during the upcoming transfer window; Colback even fits the bill sweeter than that, being a Newcastle United fan at heart.

Colback was probably Sunderland’s best player during their most recent SJP triumph; nabbing himself an (what has to be said) impressive goal alongside muted celebrations. I certainly think we could do a hell of a lot worse than this for a signing.

In my eyes the boy has potential and works his socks off whenever he plays – and that’s even for the side he was brought up to despise!

For us, I imagine he’d play with the passion that many of us would only dream to see in a black and white shirt nowadays.

He’s only 24, can play in a number of positions, and on a free transfer. Why not?

Obviously I’m not going to be exactly pleased if he’s the only name brought in, but I certainly wouldn’t oppose to him joining the NUFC ranks.

What are your thoughts? Comments (as always) more than welcome.
