Newcastle Pursuing Premier League Flop?
The big Dane was the Bluebirds’ record signing at the time of his capture from FC Copenhagen last summer for what was a reported £8m fee by then-manager Malky Mackay.
Having cost such a huge fee, fans had hoped the unheard of 21-year-old could lead the line in the Premier League, injury and non-selection meant he barely featured.
Since returning to his home country, he has scored eight goals in 17 appearances for the Copenhagen club, and he is at the top of the goal scoring charts in the Danish Super League.
It is always difficult when analysis these sort of reports because, though Graham Carr was definitely seen at the game, it’s not quite clear which player he is checking on.
And with this in mind, it would be very surprising if Newcastle are indeed interested in the 21 year-old 6’4″ striker, especially when he failed so badly at Cardiff last season.
If Newcastle are to bring in another striker in the next week, it will most likely be from the continent, but what Newcastle really need is an established goalscorer – and Andreas Cornelius is not that.
