Souness hints at Murphy move

Graeme Souness has intimated that he could move for Danny Murphy should Lee Bowyer leave St James' Park in the transfer window.

 

With several deals taking shape across The Premiership, the futures of both Murphy and Bowyer appear to be far from certain and could be decided within the next few weeks.

 

Alan Curbishley has recently come out to express his ire at how media speculation has been mounting with regards to Murphy, with Newcastle and Manchester City having been strongly linked with the talented midfielder.

 

Murphy enjoyed a fine start to the campaign, with talk of an England recall resurfacing, but in recent weeks - during Charlton's slump - has been reduced on occasion to a place on the bench.

 

Talk had been that the player was hankering after a move back north but whilst this has been dismissed by Curbishley, Souness has now conceded that Murphy could be an option should Bowyer quit the North East.

 

''If, and it's a big if, Bowyer leaves then we will be one short in midfield,'' said Souness.

 

''Danny Murphy is a quality player, who has been in and is on the fringes of the England squad.''

 

If Murphy does make a move to Newcastle then ironically, Bowyer could be his replacement - as former club Charlton have always maintained a strong interest in the former Valley favourite.

 

However, Portsmouth are also keen to bring tenacity to their midfield, courtesy of Bowyer, and it could yet prove to be a two-way fight for his services.

 

Meanwhile, Souness has played down talk of a move for Marseille's Abdoulaye Meite, claiming that if he does move for a defender then he will most probably buy British.

Souness has said he wants players with Prem experience. e.g. Boumsong and Emre and Luque?????????

Souness, when you 'look in the mirror' that you like to talk frequently of, do you smile and dream up these statements thinking they make you sound as though you know what you're talking about??

When he looks in the mirror I expect he says things like, "If that ugly twat looks at me again, I'll chin him."
