£2m winger has 'no idea' if he'll be at Newcastle next season

Published Add your comment

Wayne Routledge is still unsure whether or not he will be a Newcastle player next season, after Swansea reportedly tabled a bid for his services.

It has been claimed the Swans offered £2 million for the 26-year-old, although it remains unconfirmed whether or not the Barclays Premier League new boys were successful in their approach.

Routledge is certainly none the wiser as to his potential destination, with the Newcastle winger admitting his 'frustration' and his future remaining unclear.

"People I honestly have no idea yet where I will be playing my football next season," he wrote on Twitter.

"It's frustrating but all I can do is train hard, get my fitness up and take each day as it comes! And when I know, so will you!"

Meanwhile, Newcastle striker Leon Best believes he can still play an important part for the Magpies, despite unable to nail down a starting berth under Alan Pardew.

Demba Ba has been added to the Newcastle ranks this summer to further damage Best's chances of a spot in Pardew's first choice XI, but the 24-year-old is confident he can still make an impact.


"I have been in this position time and time again," said Best.

"I have to look back at last season for confidence.

"I think people know I can do it in the Premier League now and it's about fighting for my position.

"There's a new striker in who I already get on very well with and I would be delighted to play alongside him, or fight him for a place.

"Competition for places brings the best out of a team - I have always believed that."
