Newcastle United: Paddy Kenny drops Matt Targett claim

Newcastle United: Paddy Kenny drops Matt Targett claim -Newcastle United News

Paddy Kenny has dropped a ‘behind the scenes’ Newcastle United claim on Matt Targett after what he has now heard.

The Lowdown: Wants to stay

As cited by The Chronicle, Targett has claimed that he ‘hopes something can be sorted’ with regards to his future at St. James’ Park.

It is widely thought that they would like to sign him on a permanent deal once his loan spell from Aston Villa ends, but that will of course depend on the player and how much money they put up.

The Latest: Kenny reacts

Speaking to Football Insider, former Premier League goalkeeper Kenny has suggested that the deal has already been done ‘behind the scenes’, and there just needs to be an official announcement from both sides:

“I would think it just needs to be announced.

“Targett has been so good and it is telling that he has never missed a minute since he came in.

“At Villa, I think Digne has that starting spot at Villa now and Targett won’t want to go back to playing second fiddle.

“He must love playing at Newcastle, the fans seem to love him. I can’t see why it wouldn’t happen.

“It works for everyone. I can’t see anyone complaining about it to be honest.

“I honestly think there must have been talks behind the scenes.”

Should Newcastle start Targett?





The Verdict: No-brainer

Signing up Targett permanently is surely a no-brainer for the North East club, given the impact that he has had on Tyneside.

Only the biggest Newcastle fan will get 100% on this transfer quiz, test your friends and family! First up, who was Craig Bellamy sold to?

He is a player that Eddie Howe clearly likes and trusts, having not missed a single minute for him in the top flight so far this season, except of course when they played his parent club (Transfermarkt).

The left-back has become a fans favourite already with his performances, so much so that 97.5% of supporters have expressed their desire for him to stay, and so this is a deal that the Magpies faithful would absolutely love.
