Heard it a few times but we are tracking Kevin prince boateng not to.keen on him can't see where he would fit in the team

Believable3 Unbelievable12

I think hes a good shout, fit in behind a striker or on the wing of a front 3. Not so dissimilar (position wise) to hba in my opinion

Agree2 Disagree6

K P Boateng is an unreal player why the hell wud he leave one of the best in europe for the toon I Know were gud but not that gud

Agree10 Disagree3

Heard it on a few Newcastle forums that his agent has said he has already agreed personal terms at least I am not the 1st person to hear this probs be total rubbish but a lot of ac players want out van bommel already gone thiago silva wants away we should also try el shaarwry looks class

Agree2 Disagree6

Doesn't seem like our type of player. Too selfish and wasteful with the ball. I think Pardew wants ball-players throughout the team so we can control possession more next season.


Agree2 Disagree0

After spending the last couple of seasons shipping out players with attitude problems why would we sign one of the biggest divas in the world! Nonsensical rumour.
