Kuyt prefers Newcastle United

Feyenoord striker Dirk Kuyt thinks he will end up at Liverpool instead of his prefered destination Newcastle United. Kuyt would love to replace Geordie legend Alan Shearer at Newcastle but it seems unlikely that the Magpies will match Feyenoord's asking price. Kuyt told me last week that he desperately wants to sign for Newcastle United.

"I've always wanted to be a hero, I have that status now at Feyenoord and I want to achieve that at my next club too. I know quite a bit about Newcastle, they're one of the best supported teams in the Premier League and they're a typical English club. It would be a dream to play for them."

The striker is unsure whether he will be a Toon hero next season, though.

"I know Feyenoord are asking a massive fee and I don't know if Newcastle are willing to match that."

Liverpool are more likely to take the gamble and pay Feyenoord's asking price of around £10 million.

"I would consider a move to Liverpool, they're likely to progress to the Champions League group stages, I would love to play in that competition but my first choice is Newcastle."
