Is Joseph Yobo to Newcastle United a no go?

### Yobo - Linked with Toon switch, too old for the Magpies transfer plans?

I've heard it all at this stage, from Ronaldinho to Newcastle United, and now to Carlos Puyol to the Magpies, but no, there's more! Steven Taylor has been today linked with a switch to Barcelona. Yes, Barcelona, not Birmingham, the Spanish giants and one of the best teams in the world. Where the media come up with this stuff is unbelievable but that would be the most ridiculous rumour I've heard to date. Exactly why I'm not giving it it's own article.

Anyway, in the last week or so we've been linked with Everton's Joseph Yobo. The Nigerian defender has slightly fallen out of favour with David Moyes back four and he could well make the move from Goodison Park this summer. The question is, are Newcastle United interested in him?

I'm torn on this matter because I can't see Joseph Yobo arriving on Tyneside yet at the same time he's someone that could do a job for Newcastle United. However, Mike Williamson, Fabricio Coloccini, Steven Taylor, Tamas Kadar and Fitz Hall are all pushing for first team spots.

On top of this, Yobo is 29 and some say his best days are behind him. Would the Nigerian really fit into our transfer plans of buying young talent for decent prices and developing them into full grown players?

You tell me!

Comments welcome 🙂
