Newcastle are set to discuss a loan move for David Beckham when they open transfer talks this week.
Manager Alan Pardew is scheduled to meet with club chiefs to mull over potential targets for the transfer window and Beckham has already come into his thinking.
“David Beckham is an asset to a team on a number of levels,” said the Newcastle boss in the Daily Star.
“But for a manager it’s the playing level and the fact he can deliver a ball. He has the experience and guile to play for this team, 100 per cent.
“But there has been no talk about David Beckham.
“Perhaps I should ring him and see what he’s up to, see if he is coming home.
“We won’t leave any stone unturned for any player who becomes available and who we think can take the club forward.
“That conversation will probably take place on Monday or Tuesday next week.
“We’re just looking at the market and making calls to see who is and isn’t available. Then we’ll have to nail it down. I will put David on the list!” (Sky Sports)
David Beckham is being targeted by an ever growing list of prospective European suitors and now Newcastle United have thrown their hat into the ring and whilst a move to bring the England international veteran would cost Mike Ashley a fair amount in wages his presence at St James’ Park could well help the club push on towards the top six.
LA Galaxy appear open to the possibility of Beckham once again moving to Europe for three months but they did appear to put their foot down on Landon Donovan doing likewise when he appeared to be hoping to be allowed to move to Everton in the transfer window.
Would Newcastle United fans like to see David Beckham brought to the club or would such a move prove to be an expensive mistake?
