Beckford? You Have Got To Be Joking!

According to the Sunday Sun (never the most reliable of rags) ... Jermaine Beckford is back on Newcastle United's hitlist. He has snubbed us once already to join Everton ... and now he is a flop at Goodison Park, why the hell would we want ANOTHER 'bargain bin' signing? Sunday Sun: United have discussed the Everton forward – although interest is yet to progress to a formal enquiry to current club Everton. Beckford was Leeds United’s top target in the January transfer window of their Championship-winning season, with several bids lodged to try and tempt Leeds to part with their top scorer. However, Newcastle continue to monitor developments with Beckford, who improved at Everton following a slow start to life in the Premier League.
