Newcastle United Transfer Moves For ‘Only’ West Ham, Stoke and Sunderland Players This Morning

8 years ago

Go on, think of a player any player, then times it by four – welcome to this morning’s Newcastle United transfer speculation which sees four different players linked supposedly with a move to St.James’ Park.

The fact that all four of them play in the Premier League and you will have heard of them, must be a bit of a rarity these days.

Though as to whether Newcastle do have any interest and whether the players would come, plus of course whether they are any good, is open to question.

Coincidentally, or not, all four have at some time been linked with Newcastle before, though that does take in a fair proportion of those playing professional football at this moment in time…

First up is 26 year old Ryan Shawcross, the Stoke City centre-back is said to be priced at £12m with both Newcastle and some club called Manchester City allegedly after him.

West Ham midfielder Mark Noble is 27 and rumoured to be available for £8m, having played half a game or something for Alan Pardew when they were together at the Hammers, obviously gives this story more credibility…

Next we have Geordie Jack Colback, the 24 year old will be out of contract this summer and the Sunderland player is said to be deciding on his future shortly.

Finally today, another West Ham midfielder Mo Diame is claimed to be agitating for a move, the 26 year old supposedly has a £3.5m buyout clause in his contract and with only a year left the Hammers allegedly could be interested in selling, both Newcastle and Liverpool said to be interested.

Diame has scored 4 goals and the other two midfielders 3 each, so a slight improvement on our average non-scoring midfielders, but are any of them the answer?
