Edward Ofere being looked at with the news of Marlon Harewood’s broken foot

Words by Kevin Doocey on .

Edward Ofere linked again with Newcastle

It’s being reported tonight that Mike Williamson has signed finally, for Newcastle United. The Portsmouth CB has supposedly signed on a 3-year deal for a fee of £1.2m. As well as this, according to Sky Sports, we could well make a move for Malmo’s Edward Ofere. As we reported in October of last year, Chris Hughton could well have the tall striker on his shortlist, and a list that’s getting shorter every day too I’m sure. Ofere is a Nigerian and quite a tall lad. He’s currently plying his trade in Sweden with Malmo FC but their president today said that they’re pretty much open to offers for him.

Speaking today, a member of the boards said :

‘If Newcastle are interested in Ofere then it’s just for them to contact us but they need to hurry up as the transfer window closes soon,’

‘Of course we have a plan if Ofere would leave. We need to have.’

We think that Malmo are looking to seal a transfer for him and get some money in what are difficult times. However, it’s obvious that Newcastle have been in contact with them for Ofere, or are certainly snipping around.

I can’t say I’ve seen much of Edward Ofere play but if he’s anything like the last Nigerian we had then I think he could do a job for Newcastle United FC.

With Harewood ruled out with a broken metatarsal it rules him out of a move to Newcastle on loan and I think this was Chris Hughton’s Plan A. Today he admitted that it was a blow to his plans. He did also say he;d look elsewhere and I’m sure the rumours will start to mount.

Comments welcome 🙂

He's nothing like Oba Martins. He's a similar type of player to Adebayor. He's 6'3, strong and athletic, got good technique as well. But his goal record is only a goal every 4 games. I would be happy with if we signed him. He's only 23 so he can get better.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCPhJkdcEJg Hes a fast player and has goals in him. and he is still only 23 year old i think it would be a good signing.

He's nothing like Martins indeed. Quite the opposite really but I think he can be quite decent if we do sign him.

Thank God he's not like Martins, the most over rated striker we have ever had. I used to coach juniors and the most fundemental thing with kids is to keep their head up to see what's happening on the pitch, Martins could not do this he was garbage. One brilliant goal to five simple misses that sums Martins up.

Something tells me that we may loose him the more we delay. There are rumours that Birmingham and WestHam are showing interest as well.

Damn! Im swedish and I have seen this guy quite a lot. A terribly bad player. Not even considered one of the better in the swedish league, which is crap. The star player of the league is Tobias Hysen! (To be fair though, he is a pacey forward now and have been relly impressive) . Look away from Ofere and go for someone better please!

Is it just me or does that you tube make vidoe make him look really average? He looks like a youg Shola Ameobi! Why sign another lanky slow target man?? We need someone to get us 10-12 goals in the next half of the season. Is this kid really better than what we have already?? On a lighter note, I hope James Tavernier plays on Wednesday, watched him for the reserves last season a lot at whitley park. He looked to be the only defender good enough apart from perhaps Darren Lough

If you ask me, after watching him in that YouTube video last night, I can only be appalled at the defending. The amount of time he has been given, and the goalkeeping ain't great either!

Recent news from Malmo that they will not release him until summer. So we have enough time to study him.
