Paul Scharner Set For Newcastle

Former Wigan Athletic player Paul Scharner is being linked with a move to Premier League new boys Newcastle United who were promoted from the Championship last season.

Scharner officially left the Latics on June 30th when his contract at the DW Stadium expired and he has been linked with moves to Fulham, Aston Villa and more recently Liverpool, but reports from the North East are now saying that the Austria international captain is likely to end up at St. James` Park.

Love him or loathe him the madcap Austrian is a real character and he brought some colour to the Latics dressing room, especially with his hair designs; Scharner has also made the most Premier League appearances for the Latics with 145 to his name spread over the five seasons he spent with the club joining mid-way through the 2005/06 season and who could forget the fact that he made a goal scoring debut in the semi-final of the Carling Cup against Arsenal with the game`s only goal.

Good luck to him whereever he ends up, he sure left some memories behind in Wigan

Paul Scharner was a great player for Wigan but I think his ego got far too big. He always thought and talked like he would leave for a 'bigger' club - and now he is joining Newcastle who have just been promoted from the Championship. Good luck to him, but just he realises if he talks about bigger clubs and so on at Newcastle he'll have 50,000 fans boo'ing him every week
