Toon back off from allegedly ‘mercenary’ Zog

Newcastle United allegedly cooling on Charles N'Zogbia transfer.
Wage demands too excessive?
A senior Newcastle United source says we’re going off the idea of bringing Charles N’Zogbia to the club due to his approach to things.

It seems that Newcastle are cooling on the prospect of bringing Charles N’Zogbia to the club, mainly due to what they see as ‘mercenary tactics’ by the player.

Newcastle have apparently been quoted a £12m fee by Whelan’s mob for The Zog and the player is said to be demanding £60k a week in wages, which apparently brought on such fits of expectoration in Mike Ashley that he almost brought up all the pies he had for breakfast.

A ‘senior Newcastle United source’ told The Journal:

The N’Zogbia situation is turning into a bun fight, there are a lot of clubs in for him and there is a lot of confusion about what his intentions are.

It seems he is waiting to see who offers him the most money, that is his priority and is that the sort of person we want to play for Newcastle United?

He is a very talented boy, but is he just a mercenary? We are considering all of these things. We need to have a long hard think about it because it is a lot of money to spend on one player who left under a cloud.(more…)
