Cleverley To Join Latics

Cleverley To Join Latics

As reported on this site more than a week ago the deal to bring Tom Cleverley on loan from Manchester United is off.

Several newspapers, including the Daily Mail, are today reporting that Wigan have won the race for Cleverley's signature for the coming season.

It appears the stumbling block was the amount of first team games Newcastle could offer him on a season long loan with Ferguson apparently insistent that he gets plenty of first team playing experience.

Had he come to Newcastle then Hughton would have only used him sparingly and as back up to the likes of Smith, Nolan, Barton and Guthrie.

Thats a shame for the Toon as he is a good player and was the star for Watford last year. Anyway hope you boys have a good season and consolidate, as us Man City fans always have a soft spot for Newcastle and their great fans. You like us have put up with enough bad times.... let the good times roll for both teams.

You boys have no idea what the Toon Boys went through two years ago or what City did when they had a similar fall from grace. But hopefully your time will come when Newcastle and City are in their rightful place - challenging for the Premiership.
