NUFC06 Posted May 4, 2007 Share Posted May 4, 2007 Glenn On Summer Signings Latest GLENN Roeder says that he has already identified some of his summer transfer targets and promises a busy close season at St.James' Park. The United boss has met with chairman Freddy Shepherd in recent weeks to discuss close season signings, and Roeder admits he already has some players in mind. Glenn told nufc.co.uk: "It will be a busy summer, I've already had meetings with the chairman and there are more meetings planned. "I have names in mind and have been looking long and hard, the players we are targeting are very well known and include and one or two foreign players." One of the signings of the season has been French striker Antoine Sibierski who arrived at Gallowgate on a free transfer from Man City last summer. And the Magpies manager says that he will have no problem about bringing in players over the age of 30, should they have the right character for Newcastle United. The 51-year-old gaffer added: "If a player over 30 has the right character then they are a good signing because they become a role model. "Take Nicky Butt, what a great role model he has been this year. "It's not just what you see on the pitch but what you on the training ground, the stays out and does more work after the session has finished, and a lot of young players have latched onto that. "But I would say that we would not want to spend money on a player over 30 because they are giveaways when their contract runs out." Jesus Wept. Last summer he was saying that he doesnt want players above 25-26 Now he is saying that he wants players above 30 What a football genius :uglystupid2: Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
