Jérôme Rothen on Chris Hughton’s shopping list apparently

Words by Kevin Doocey on .

Jerome Rothen

Sky Sports are reporting within the last hour that Chris Hughton may well make a move for PSG’s Jérôme Rothen. The winger, who is on loan at Rangers is meant to have caught the eye of Hughton in the last while. Speaking earlier today Hughton, who has been in good contact with the media, said he is very confident that his transfer targets will arrive this January, and maybe sooner than later. With Beckford expected to arrive very soon indeed there are still lingering reports that Matthew Kilgallon could make a move to us yet.

The reports of Jérôme Rothen’s interest comes from the French newspaper Le Quotidien du Foot. Rothen has failed to make an impression at Ibrox of late and has been sent back home with suspicion of having the swine flu.

Rothen is 31 years of age and has been around quite a while. He’s a French international and was certainly a handful back in the day. Whether he’s still able to cut it, remains to be seen.

Some people are beginning to get a little worried about Hughton’s ambitions to sign older players, and in their 30’s but nothing so far has suggested that Hughton isn’t willing to buy younger players.

The likes of Matthew Kilgallon & Jermaine Beckford are young but no kids to be fair. They’re both moving into their later 20’s. If they can do a job for Newcastle United FC then by all means bring them on board. However, that’s the very question many people are asking, can they improve our side that already holds many Premier League players?

I’m sure more news will follow about this rumour as the January transfer window begins to hot up, or something like that.

Comments welcome 🙂

No thanks Rangers are paying high wages for him and they want him off their bucks because he has not been good enough, so no thanks.

We have some decent young ones coming through. Ranger, Carroll, Lua Lua, Kadar, Krul, Forster, Donaldson, Vuckic. I don#t know this Rothen fella apart from Pro Evo, he's got great pace on that but who knows

You will never win anything with kids.... Rothen was fantastic against us in the cup a few years back and has failed to live up to his potential. But a steady Scott Sellars style player would always be a welcome addition. Someone who can take a corner would be a bonus! I think you will also find that with the removal of Butt we also have a pretty young squad. You need experience to help these kids along. Also what is wrong with getting players who will accept short contracts whom we can part ways with without paying huge fees for?

I dont want him! I hope we sign both Beckford and Kilgallon! I also hope we can get the youngster Tom Cleverly from Watford (curently on loan from MUFC). But I think Beckford is the most vital! He can score many goals, thats we need!

Don't fancy him at all!Passed his peak and definitely not of premier league quality! Bring in younger players like Jermaine Pennent!One of Zaragoza's best players but they will be selling due to financial problems!£2-£3m..would be a quality signing!

I won't believe any of this about Beckford & Kilgallon until they're out on the hallowed turf at SJP in B&W shirts with Hughton, then we'll know what's true & what isn't!!! Forget the 31yr old left sider, it's just crap-loid rubbish, why would we need another left sided player when we have Jonas, is it to keep his bench seat warm for him just incase he hasto come off the pitch, complete waste of writting space:( Btw Doocey, good site mate :)

Whilst were at it i used to post as kevin nichol on Ed's bolg :-).... If we can bring rothen in as cover for jonas then why not bring him in on loan until the end of the season! Injuries and suspensions will come into play at some stage and we do not have another player who can go out wide left to my knowledge. An experienced French international cannot but help our cause and no.1 goal in getting promoted back to the PL. The more options we have the better!!! Really hoping the journal or the chronicle pull their finger out today and give us some real news on Beckford!
