Newcastle are ready to make their first signing in the off-season. After enduring a quite difficult time in the transfer market, losing out on primary target Luca Modric to Spurs, Newcastle manager, Kevin Keegan, is hopeful that they will make Rangers defender, Carlos Cuellar , their first signing.
Newcastle are set to present Rangers with a Ã‚Â£7million offer for their star defender, who impressed for Rangers in the UEFA Cup final against Zenit St. Petersburg , despite losing the final.
Cuellar, 26, who moved to Rangers last season from Osasuna in a Ã‚Â£2.3m deal, has been a big hit in his debut season in the SPL. He was recently voted the leagueÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s player of the year.
The Spainard’s impressive performances both in SPL and the UEFA Cup have alerted a lot of clubs. If Rangers do agree to their offer, Newcastle would most likely face stiff competition for his signature.
