Top Legear?

The Journal are reporting comments from Anderlecht winger Jonathan Legear which suggest that a move to St James' Park may be on the cards: "Newcastle has contacted my agent to let him know they are interested in me".

If true, that would seem to confirm a desire to attack on the flanks and play to the strengths of the developing partnership between Rocky and Big Lad. Not sure I agree with journo Mark Douglas that "midfield is the one area in which Newcastle probably need reinforcements – with the squad pretty thin on the ground if they don’t strengthen", though. Cover in the full-back positions and a pacy goalpoacher are more urgently required, I'd say. It's also worth noting that the recruitment of a new winger may pave the way for Kazenga LuaLua's departure.
