Paris Saint Germain’s Czech Republic international defender, David Rozehnal, is set to sign a four-year deal with Newcastle United on Monday, his agent Pavel Zika revealed last night.
Pavel Zika in his continuing press announcement on this transfer said last night:
“We’re leaving for England on Sunday night and David will undergo a medical on Monday morning. Afterwards he should sign the contract.”
Certainly Zika seems to have conducted this transfer in the press â€“ commenting every few days on what the situation is and which club was ahead â€“ as though it was a horse race. Anyway, Newcastle finally got their man and looks like he will be a Newcastle player on Monday and may even be unveiled to the Newcastle fans and press on Monday or maybe Tuesday.
A good signing for us we feel and he will give us the added height needed at the back. We still need one experienced center back (Sami Hyypia?) and two full backs. As we revealed yesterday Newcastle are after right back Luke Young of Charlton along with Bolton and Aston Villa.
Rozehnal, who turns 27 next month, joined PSG in June 2005 on a four-year deal from Club Brugge and it is now being reported that he has 34 caps for the Czech Republic and not the 26 we had been reporting. He played 78 times for PSG scoring a single goal and was PSG’s player of the year last year.
