New look for nufc wings?

Post  Guest on Fri Jun 03, 2011 9:21 pm

Newcastle United allegedly pursue David ‘Junior’ Hoilett with a new bid whilst the Zog still remains a target.

The rumour from the Metro is that Newcastle are determined to secure the services of Blackburn’s David ‘Junior’ Hoilett.

The 5ft 8in 20 year-old can either play as a striker or on the right wing and has scored 7 goals in 55 games for Blackburn where he has spent all his senior career.

Could Hoilett, I wonder, be Pardew’s intended replacement for Joey Barton, who has largely occupied the right wing this season despite preferring to be in the centre?

Rovers manager Steve Kean wants to hang onto the lad though, saying:

“We are hopeful. Junior is desperate to get something sorted out, he wants to stay, he is playing well and has enjoyed a good run in the team.

“I have spoken with Junior and he is now on a family holiday. I will probably go out to Canada in the next couple of weeks to speak to his dad.

“He is enjoying his football and has been a bit of a match-winner for us.

“He can be top, top notch. He can go all the way to being a very, very special player in this league.”

Hoilett was born in Canada, raised in England and has Jamaican ancestry and is eligible to play for any of those countries although Canada is said to be his first choice.

Charles N’Zogbia is still a target for the other wing of course, although apparently Wigan rejected a £6m bid this week after previously rejecting £5m. The player himself has apparently told Twitty that he’s keen on a return to Newcastle, saying:

“Newcastle is a big club and a great atmosphere to play at St James’ Park!

“I enjoyed the time I had playing for NUFC.”

Which seems somewhat at odds with how I remember things, but let’s not split hairs eh?

So what do you think? Zog on the left, Hoilett on the right? What of Jonas?
