When were Newcastle ever linked to Lloyd Sam?

Lloyd - Reportedly attracting interest from Newcastle & other clubs

Sky Sports is running the story that Lloyd Sam, Charlton’s winger, is not interested in moving to Newcastle. First things first, this is news to me, and I’m sure many other Toon fans. This is the first time we’ve been linked to this winger but it’s rumoured that Chris Hughton was having a look at him all that time, or supposedly so. Although I for one have heard very little of this guy he’s highly rated at Charlton and in League 1 it seems, with a whole host of other Championship clubs looking to avail of his services.

Speaking today on the speculation, he said :

‘I haven’t seen that,’

‘I’ve not seen anything at the minute, and that’s being completely honest.

‘I haven’t started talking with the club yet, but I’m sure there will be some talks about it soon.

‘At the minute, I’m just playing football and trying to get promoted. I’m happy at Charlton. I’ve been here 10 years, I’m happy and I’ve got a relationship with the fans, too.’

I suppose the first thing we notice there is the fact he’s been with Charlton for 10 years. Although, he’s only 25 years of age still. Saying that, I couldn’t see him making the first team for Newcastle.

Surely Chris is looking for a little better standard players, if looking for them at all. I wouldn’t mind seeing Darron Gibson arriving as my regular readers know so well. However, I doubt Fergie will let him go, especially after his latest performances & goals.

Comments welcome 🙂

same old story, agents using us as a name to drum up interest from others. it's been happening for years, the only difference is it's now shit lower league players "linked" with us, rather than shit foreigners no one has heard of.

Doocey I thought earlier when I read that, that that was the 1st time I have seen his name being linked with us. But as Chris says agents as usual spouting crap. As for Darron Gibson I hope they keep him as I cant stand him for turning his back on us ( N.I) to play for the republic

Big Dave, Regarding Gibson - he's from Derry, don't be bigoted about a player that'd possibly help the club in the long run (tho i'm happy enough with Smudger & the soon to be Irish International Nolan, outta interest will you turn your back on him then too?). Sure McGinn & McCourt decided to play for the North, it's not biggy especially with all the backstory involved- just dont be spoutin the same old crap please when this is supposed to be about the toon! as for LLyod Sam - no need i reckon, unless Fat Mike knows somethin we dont know about the Jan transfer window....
