This has only been confirmed by Marlon Harewood’s agent (via Sky Sports), but it appears that the big striker is set for a loan move to the Toon. We could do with him too as Shola Amoebi is knackered for the forseeable future.
Harewood would be a decent backup. Coming back from injury, we would provide the first team football he’s craving and give him the opportunity to show that he can still do the business.
The most important thing is that it looks like the lad wants to join us. As many noted during last years relegation scrap, getting players here who wanted to play for the team and not the high salary, was half the battle.
