LUFC Hughton confirms Beckford interest

LUFC Hughton confirms Beckford interest

Newcastle United boss Chris Hughton has admitted he`s interested in taking Leeds United striker Jermaine Beckford to Newcastle.

Speaking in the Sunderland Echo, Hughton said 'Jermaine Beckford is one of a few players that will of course be of interest to us".

The transfer window re opens in the next seven days and a number of clubs are sure to show an interest in Leeds leading goalscorer.

The free scoring striker has now scored 73 goals for Leeds in just two and a half seasons.

The 26 year old was placed on the transfer list in the summer after snubbing an improved contract from Leeds.

Beckford was taken of the transfer list before the season started and Leeds boss Simon Grayson and Chairman Ken Bates have continuously reiterated that they are willing to gamble and see him leave for nothing in the summer if it helps Leeds to promotion.

The former Wealdstone player had a public fall out with Grayson recently when he refused to shake the bosses hand after being substituted against Southampton and stormed straight down the tunnel.

Beckford apologised to Grayson when returning to training on the Monday and he`s responded by scoring four goals in his last two games.
