Newcastle United make enquiries into Reading striker

Newcastle United have made further enquiries into the availability of Reading FC striker Shane Long with a view to adding the 24 year old to their summer buys so far.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has been perhaps been one of the busiest managers of later, signing the likes of Demba Ba, Sylvain Marveaux, Mehdi Abeid and Yohan Cabaye as the 49 year old continues to spend money received for Andy Carroll on strengthening the whole squad.

It is no secret that Shane Long impressed last season at Reading with quite a number of clubs making enquiries for the hitman but Newcastle seem keen to continue adding depth and in particular more attack minded players. Should Reading be prepared to sell then St. James’ Park could very well be Long’s next destination.
