'If It's Football, It's Vital'

KK Insists I'll Decide Who Signs

Kevin Keegan is desperate to breath some new life into the Toon squad for next season so plenty of transfer activity is expected at St James' this summer, but a lot of this was rumoured to be down to Dennis Wise's digression but Keegan insists that although Wise will have input he will be the one that decides who does sign: 'Dennis and Tony are not there to say: 'We've got to sign this player'. They're there to say: 'You should go and look at this player' - and that's how it's working,' Keegan told Sky Sports. 'They've already put names forward but, until we see them, they won't come into this football club. If we think like Dennis and Tony do when we see them, we'd love to have them at Newcastle. If they bring players in and they're not my players I wouldn't be managing this football club.

'Dennis and I talk a lot. We had a meeting two weeks ago, took our list in and they put theirs down. They have a massive database of all parts of Europe and South America.'

Many names that have been drawn up are South American based players and although Keegan will go and look at them he doesn't seem overly keen on bringing players over from that continent as more often than not these moves fail to work out, and this isn`t something that he wants. He also again clarified the position of Wise and his relationship with him: 'I'm less keen on South American players coming into this country, that doesn't mean we won't get any but it's a big move for them. I would prefer to sign players with Premier League experience. I think there is probably a balance between the two.

'As far as their list goes, we'll be flying off over the next three or four weeks to look at the players we don't know. We know their names but there are one or two on the list from Dennis that I haven't seen play.

'We're going to work together. We've got no reason not to. Nothing that Dennis is doing at this club is in any way detrimental to me doing my job.'

The list will be very long, and quite a few million pounds will be spent but one man that will not be arriving on Tyneside this summer will be Luka Modric as he has agreed a move to Spurs, despite him being heavily linked with the Toon.
