Rangers Visit To Tyneside Could Be Part of Smith-Cuellar Swap Deal

The Ibrox lads will have a visit to St. James’s Park in August 6th for a friendly game with Newcastle United according a report from Setanta, while the Primera Liga club Valencia is next to follow on August 9th.

After receiving the warning from United’s authority about Toon’s transfer policy to only sign younger player in the summer that could down the prospect of getting City’s skipper Richard Dunne, Kevin Keegan is now keen to take Spanish Carlos Cuellar to Newcastle.


United chief of recruitment Dennis Wise also reported having plans to weighing up our bid to £9million for the Spanish giant, after seeing the player in last week’s UEFA Cup final against Zenit St Petersburg at the City of Manchester Stadium. Cuellar, 26, has made big impact in his first season with Gers since signing from Osasuna last summer.

If the deal goes through, Ibrox manager Walter Smith will be looking for Alan Smith as a swap deal. I can see there’s no harm for us if we let Smith join the SPL team, but Smith £60,000-a-week wages will be a problem for Rangers. My suggestion for Alan Smith, being a Rangers fan, I hope you willing to receive less and play for them.

From other transfer news, United is also fancy FC Basel’s 19-year-old striker Eren Derdiyok who scored against England for Switzerland at Wembley when he came on as a second-half sub in February. Kevin Keegan is also keen to make a double £8m swoop for Galatasaray’s Arda Turan and Stuttgart striker Mario Gomez.

Meanwhile, another Toon reported target Morocco international, Mbark Boussoufa is set to sign a new deal with his current club Anderlecht, to end any speculation of his move to Tyneside.

    My best time of the year… its like playing CM just by reading news. I can only judge player as far as what I can find in YouTube, but the best striker being linked to us so far is Oscar Cardozo. Hes like Obafemi Martin with Peter Crouch size.

    Too bad, Keegan said that he’s unlikely to sign any South American player…but maybe if he has seen the way Cardozo playing, he will change his mind 🙂
