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.

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.
