Bothroyd In Line For Newcastle United Switch

Bothroyd In Line For Newcastle United Switch

Cardiff City striker Jay Bothroyd has been lined up for a move to the Premiership with Newcastle United keen on taking the talented forward to St James' Park.

Bothroyd is out-of-contract in the summer, and whilst he has always professed to be happy at Cardiff - he would obviously be keen on a return to the Premiership having shown his tremendous potential and become more disciplined and consistent since moving to South Wales.

A number of clubs have watched Bothroyd, with the likes of Fulham, Everton, West Ham and Newcastle United showing the strongest interest. Bothroyd would ideally like a move back to London, where he spends much of his spare time when not required at training.

However a move to Newcastle, a big club looking to re-establish themselves in the Premiership, would be appealing. They are searching for competition for the likes of Shola Ameobi, while fellow striker Andy Carroll is a transfer target for a number of clubs.

A fee of £2m would likely be enough to persuade Cardiff City to cash in on Bothroyd, with a deal already agreed in principal to bring James Vaughan of Everton to the club. He would join Chopra, Keogh, Bellamy and new man Jon Parkin.

Vital Boxing - Joshua v Klitschko?

He's basically gone already in my opinion. Hasn't played since early Dec. Cash in on him or lose the risk of him leaving on a free? Mind, he is instrumental in a Premier League push! It's catch 22.
