Shearer eyes 6m Wigan defender Scharner to patch up leaky Newcastle
Alan Shearer has reportedly targeted Paul Scharner to beef up his Newcastle defence for next season. Shearer has put the Toon Army in a great position to beat the drop and wants to stay on at St James' Park beyond the end of the season. But he will demand a raft of changes and it is claimed the England legend has turned to Wigan centre-back Scharner as someone to help patch their leaky backline. The 29-year-old could be ready for a new challenge after three years at the JJB Stadium, according to the Daily Mirror. And the experienced Austria international has a £6million release fee written into his contract.
