Newcastle United are said to be interested in Wigan Athletics’ star man; Charles N’Zogbia.

Now I bet you’re all thinking; no way, I didn’t know about that! (Of course you did! Well, I hope so.) But I’m not just here to state the obvious.

‘The Zog’ has also revealed that he would love to join Newcastle, and the fact that Newcastle have 3 new French players (if you include Hatem Ben Arfa) with a possible 4th if Mehdi Abeid signs the dotted line, has probably played a strong role in the situation.

When N’Zogbia was an NUFC player, he was very temperamental and his favourite hobby was to take a strop if things didn’t go his way. He left St. James’ Park on bad terms with everyone involved with the club, and was booed every time he faced us.

However, 2011 has seemed to be a year when N’Zogbia has transformed; as a player and a person.

Since he left Newcastle, he has matured tremendously, and all bad press towards him has stopped, even in the North East of England. He has refrained from developing any negative relationships with anyone, and has learned from his mistakes to push on in his playing career.

He has even strengthened the mental side to his game. Years ago, if Charles and his side went behind, he wouldn’t show too much ambition to fight for his team.

However, it was the 15th May 2011, and N’Zogbia and his Wigan side were 2-0 down to a sinking West Ham, if the result had of ended this way, Wigan would have been relegated. But the second half stunned every spectator and critic. ‘The Zog’ scored Wigan’s first and Salmon scored their second to bring the game level.

 Then all of a sudden, in the 94th minute a Charles N’Zogbia popped up with a deserved winner to kick start the celebrations on the turf of The D.W Stadium.

I hope this article has ensured everyone that signing N’Zogbia would be the way forward. It is clear to see that he has changed for the benefit of himself, and his career. It may take at least £9 million to bring him back to Tyneside, but I definitely think he is worth the money, and the risk.
