Still no signs in whatsoever for the next Big Move by Kevin Keegan in January transfer window. Handed at around £25M war chest this month, It's to be believe that King Kev is having the papers already from every player managers all over the world on his desk at St. James'.
And as usual, the papers are the first to know about who will come and who will go. No different this time, they have been busy in speculating the names. The latest name was Porto defender Marek Cech, who is apparently was about to have his medical check last week under Sam Allardyce.
Currently playing for Portuguese side FC Porto, Marek Čech (born 26 January 1983 in Trebišov, Czechoslovakia) is a left wing back who can also play centre half or in midfield. While at AC Sparta Prague, Marek was part of a no-nonsense defense.
In the 2005/06 season he was part of Co Adriaanse's triumphant domestic league and cup winning FC Porto. He also plays for the Slovakia national football team where he is part of the UEFA Euro 2008 qualifying team. 24-year-old Slovakia left back, is also having the interest from Wigan's boss Steve Bruce.
“I would leave Porto only if I received a really good offer,” he told Pravda. “I am finding a way to make a step up in my career. I don't think Newcastle are higher than Porto in the football hierarchy as Porto have been winning trophies, play in the Champions League every year and even won it before I entered the club.”
