    Wigan Athletic forward Marlon King could be heading to Championship club Newcastle United for the rest of the season on loan according to reports in the media.

    King quite obviously doesn`t feature in the plans of Latics boss Roberto Martinez and a season in the Newcastle attack rather than the Wigan reserves must be more appealing to him even though during the summer he claimed he wouldn`t go on loan again after spending the whole of last season at first Hull City and then Middlesbrough.

    Newcastle have switched their attention to King following an injury to young Everton striker James Vaughan who they had lined up last week and representatives of the club have been in touch with the Latics to get the ball rolling.

    Championship clubs are allowed to make loan signings outside the transfer window so that isn`t a problem it could just be down to whether Marlon fancies the year up in Newcastle or kicking his heals around Christopher Park.

    From a Latics point of view this will leave the club with just two recognised first team strikers, Hugo Rodallega and Jason Scotland, maybe we are looking at some unattached players to bring one in to bolster the options upfront, I hope so.

    As bad as King is, it would be total dereliction of duty to leave us with just 2 recognized strikers.

    good ridance to, he is a disaster. We have some young kids who could get a run and would be ahead of Marlon in the pecking order.

    Why keep players in the reserves on big money when you can have a percentage paid for getting him out?

    Clearly not, or they would be on the bench ahead of him, wouldn’t they?

    Agree, but perhaps Martinez views Kapo as an alternative (when he’s fit) and possibly Koumas.

    Maybe Scharner has now decided he’s actually striker.

    But I suppose it has to be seen to be justified considering he’s on £38k per week. (head shaking uncontrollably as I type….!)

    Scotland is a ‘recognised’ striker. He might not be recognised in the Premier League, but he is a striker – something we are desperately short of.

    I’d still rather play Scotland than King, and dare I say it, even Kapo.

    1st, I never put myself in the 1%. The 1% was reserved only for the odd real footballer who might lurk on here wetting himself laughing at idiots like you. And me.

    2nd, yes, I think he is recognised as a striker, albeit in many people’s opinion, not a very good one. I think 20-odd goals in a championship side gives you the right to call yourself a striker.

    I might post something again later tonight if you feel the need to stalk and pull me to pieces again
