Think about him & Burn
PIF should land a Newcastle deal for Kelly in the summertime as he would type an thrilling partnership with Dan Burn at St. James’ Park.
They’d complement one another properly as their contrasting types would assist them work in tandem in matches as a pairing.
While Burn excels in his particular person duels and likes to bully attackers, he lacks the tempo to cowl in behind and could be uncovered when he will get turned and has to chase after a ball that goes previous him – as proven in current objectives for Everton and Chelsea as Alex Iwobi and Kai Havertz broke into the area behind him to attain.
He has made 3.1 tackles and interceptions while successful 3.0 aerial duels and 4.7 battles in complete per recreation within the Premier League this season – as per SofaScore. This reveals that he’s a powerful one-on-one defender as he’s often successful 50/50’s to regain possession for his facet to make up for his lack of mobility.
Kelly, in the meantime, has solely gained 1.1 aerial battles per recreation within the Championship at an underwhelming success price of 47%. The 23-year-old shouldn’t be excellent within the air, like the previous Brighton man, and may go away the majority of these explicit duels to Burn.
He does, nonetheless, have the flip of tempo to cowl the 30-year-old and make sure that his velocity shouldn’t be a significant difficulty in video games. Former Cherries boss Jonathan Woodgate beforehand heaped reward on the central defender’s bodily attributes, saying:
“On the minute he simply appears like a little bit of a Rolls-Royce doesn’t he? He appeared very, excellent (in opposition to Bristol Metropolis).
“I used to be impressed to be trustworthy with you, particularly when (Antoine) Semenyo tried to run him down the road and Semenyo gave him two yards and Lloydy overtook him. It’s eye-catching when issues like that occur, particularly as a fellow defender. If you see issues like that, it’s like ‘you’ve received a bit’.”
This implies that he’ll be capable to alleviate any issues attributable to Burn’s mobility, or lack thereof, and that’s the reason they’d be an ideal pairing at Newcastle subsequent season and PIF should seal a deal for Kelly in the summertime.
