QPR's Les Ferdinand fuels reports of Newcastle United's interest in Ebere Eze


Les Ferdinand has revealed that he’d recommend a move to Newcastle United for his prized asset Ebere Eze.

Ferdinand works as director of football for the West London club where Eze is currently lighting up the Championship for Mark Warburton’s side.

The 21-year-old is one of the hottest properties outside of the Premier League after scoring 12 and creating eight in 37 appearances so far this term.

Sky Sports have already reported that Crystal Palace are keen on a move for the £20million-rated star, while The Chronicle claim that the Magpies are keen on a move.

But while QPR prepare themselves for various bids from the Premier League, former Newcastle United favourite Les Ferdinand has said that he’d be doing all that he could to convince Eze to make the move to Tyneside.

Speaking to Newcastle Fans TV, Ferdinand said: “If you pay enough money for him, you can get him to come!

“I’ll be giving him a glowing report in terms of what it’s like up there. It’s a great place to go and play football but as long as you lot match our asking price, you can have him no problem!

“People have been asking me about him, even the club said lots of people are talking about him, and I said he’s probably in the top six players I’ve seen.

“He’d be in the top six easily in terms of his ability to control and pass the ball. I think the rest of it will come.

“He’s still got bags of energy and he’s got to know how to use that energy in the right areas and how he’s going to be effective using his energy in the right areas.

“He’s got so much more to come, but he will be a superstar if he keeps his head on and goes to the right place.”

GIVEMESPORT’S Phil Spencer says…

Newcastle United are crying out for some flair and creativity in their attacking set-up.

Ebere Eze could certainly be that player.

The QPR man is one of the most talented players in the Championship and it’s no surprise that he’s being linked with a move to the Premier League.

Eze is the type of character who would relish the challenge of adapting to life in the top flight, and given his laid back nature, I’d be surprised if the pressure got too much for him.
