Newcastle to bid £9m for Aston Villa midfielder

By on January 26, 2011 - 42 views

Newcastle have been linked with a £9m bid for Aston Villa’s out-of-favour midfielder Stephen Ireland.

Toon boss Alan Pardew has yet to strengthen his squad in the January window and could be tempted to bring former Man City star Ireland to St James Park.

Because of Ireland’s lack of playing time though, Newcastle may consider a loan deal with an option for a permanent transfer at the end of the season.

Meanwhile, Newcastle have apparently had a bid of £5m turned down for QPR winger Adel Taarabt.
