The Sun, taking a few moments to pause between asking its readers to write messages of comfort to a suicidal Britney Spears and launching a “national” vote on whether Jordan’s pre or post-op mammaries are better, has brought us the gloriously tenuous rumour that both Jermain Defoe and Shaun Wright-Phillips are “queueing up” to sign for Newcastle.
According to Sun scribbler Shaun Custis both men are ready to leap aboard the good ship Toon, and an insider tells us about Kevin Keegan’s training ground edict:
“It wasn’t like a big speech by the manager or anything but it sounded like he would be making a few changes.
“With only a couple of weeks left in the transfer window, he has not really got time to assess what is already there. He has to make some quick decisions.”
Were not sure about this rumour, in fact we would bet our houses on the fact that this is utter tripe.
