Keegan might not watching live football after being exiled from the game for three years, and last to manage Manchester City in 2005. His lacked of detailed knowledge of the opposing teams have only cost him a slow revival time for Toon before putting together a sequence of seven matches with possible to end the season without defeat.
Now that we are securing our premierships status and it’s time to concentrate on rebuilding the team for next season. Admitted to have losing out to land Croatian midfielder Luka Modric to the on-high spirited Spurs, Keegan now focusing his sight on the former employee at City, Richard Dunne.
Dunne is another player who Keegan knows very well and Newcastle are hoping that the managerial upheaval at Manchester City will assist the pursuit of the 28-year-old Republic of Ireland centre half. City will be looking for around £5 million (€6.3 million) cash in for the player who has one year left on his current contract.
Former United player Steve Howey said Keegan will make no mistake trying to sign Dunne. Howey rated him as a top player and a great defender. According to his view, he’s the kind of player Newcastle need if we are going to challenge the top four again.
“This fellow is the best. I have played alongside some of the greatest modern-day central defenders in the likes of Tony Adams, Neil Ruddock and Gareth Southgate – and Richard Dunne is up there with the best of them. That’s how highly I rate him.” Howey said in the ChronicleLive.
