The Newcastle Evening Chronicle today are reporting that things may go down to the line as far as the signings of Beye and Faye are concerned.
One thing Newcastle didn’t realize is that Abdoulaye Faye will need a work permit, but we don’t think that will stop the transfer going through – it’s just that Newcastle will have a little more paper-work to deal with today.
Waiting on all of this is Nobby Solano, who according to the Evening Chronicle will be allowed to move to West Ham, but only if the two Newcastle deals are completed today.
Nobby Solano – waiting to see if he can move to West Ham for personal reasons
As far as Beye is concerned he has already told people in France that the deal is almost done with Newcastle. The offer Sam made to him a while ago has been on the table for over a month. Habib has decided it’s just too good a deal for him to turn down financially, and he also adds that Newcastle are a huge club, which is also a big attraction.
We’d really like to see Nobby stay – and he of course has pledged himself to Newcastle, should the two deals not go through. But we have no worries on that front, since he’s been a wonderful servant of the club for nearly 10 years and it will be sad if he has to leave for personal reasons.
However, he’s still a great player and maybe West Ham have had second thought on Nobby since Kieron Dyer broke his leg against Bristol Rovers in mid-week. Nobby will be an excellent acquisition for West Ham – who can play right-back or right-midfield – they just don’t know that yet.
That’s the latest we have on the transfer front – www.nufc.co.ukÂ Â is where the signings and any departures will be published first.
