No loan move for Toon target McManus

No loan move for Toon target McManus

Newcastle United's hopes of landing Celtic captain Stephen McManus appears to have been thwarted. Gordon Strachan dismissed speculation last night about a potential move for McManus by stating that what the Magpies were offering was far below the club's valuation of the 26-year-old.

Celtic are interested in signing Toon left-back Jose Enrique, but do not want to include McManus as part of that deal. This however has proved to be a stumbling block for Newcastle boss Joe Kinnear who hoped to use the Spaniard as bait to lure McManus to the North-East.

It has emerged now that the Magpies' lack of finances forced them to rescind any overtures they may have made towards a permanent switch for the Scotland vice-Captain. In fact, Kinnear was hoping to sign the tough-tackling defender on loan for the rest of the season.

Gordon Strachan is unwilling to let McManus leave on loan, and the only way a switch can be made at this point, is if the St. James' Park club offer a substantial amount to The Bhoys, and hope the defender agrees personal terms with them.
