Following our piece yesterday on Newcastle United’s interest in Manchester City’s U21 defender Nedum Onuoha…
The Toon have been reveled as skint members. The player has been priced at c.£7 million and consequently beyond their budget.
If I were a Newcastle fan I’d take this a refreshing news. Onuoha is far from the finished article and if he were not an English player at a Premiership club, then his value would be an awful lot closer to the £3 million Hughton probably had in mind.
There was a time when this sort of player would have been hoovered up by Newcastle on a silly salary without much thought.
Maybe, just maybe, common sense is creeping back into St. James.
