Quote :
Kevin Keegan has been promised funds to help turn Newcastle into a club that can attract the biggest names.

Ahead of Newcastle's clash with Chelsea, chairman Chris Mort said they are looking to the future when considering which players to buy.

"Over the summer, we will look to strengthen the squad further," he said.

"In addition to immediate fixes, we will want to acquire players that can help make Newcastle United a top team for the medium and long-term."

Newcastle have already missed out on the signing of midfielder Luka Modric, who rejected a lucrative offer to join Tottenham instead.

However, Mort is confident that Newcastle are heading in the right direction and that they will soon be in a position to attract player's like the 22-year-old Croatian international.

"It is frustrating that Modric, like (Jonathan) Woodgate before him, should take less money than we offered to move to the bright lights of London, and European football with Tottenham next season."

"But these are the sorts of difficulties that should get easier to address once we build a squad that competes at the right end of the table."

What an idiot. All things being equal most 'foreigners' would opt to live in a glamorous capital than a former industrial city in a remote location.

It does put Newcastle at a disadvantage and is why they've always had to pay over the odds in salaries. London is home to a number of foreign communities that helps overseas players settle in quicker. Modric will struggle to find Croatian restaurants and fellow nationals in Newcastle.

to be fair he will also struggle to find electricty, comprehensible acents and people with hands instead of claws.

He made the right choice.
