My friends, it looks like we will have another new player signing for Newcastle today, as both Liverpool and Newcastle have agreed about the transfer fee for the service of Danny Guthrie. The Merseyside club is now given the permission for United to speak directly with the player.


Daniel Sean “Danny” Guthrie born April 18, 1987 in Shrewsbury and grew up in Telford. He signed for Liverpool when he’s still a 15 year old after being released by Manchester United.

During his time with Liverpool’s Academy he has a call-up to join the England schoolboy side, while as member of the Reds reserve squad, he was their regular captain. With the Liverpool senior team, he made the first appearance in their pre-season friendly at Wrexham in 2006, played as a left midfielder.

His competitive first-team debut came after being named on the bench in a Football League Cup tie against Reading on 25 October 2006, and coming on as a 62nd minute substitute for Mohamed Sissoko.

Month later he start his Premier League debut, again as a substitute, against Portsmouth before earning his first match as a starter for Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League against Galatasaray on 5 December, 2006.

After being out in a loan basis on March 2, 2007 to Southampton until the end of season, he signed another loan contract with Bolton Wanderers last season, while they’re still managed by former Liverpool player and coach Sammy Lee as the caretaker manager. Guthrie completed the season with 25 Premier League appearances with Bolton.
