Celestine Babayaro has played his last game for Newcastle United, and that will not worry most Newcastle fans.
Celestine Babayaro – injured since March of this year
Newcastle United and the Nigerian international announced today, that they have come to an agreement and the club will pay up the 29-year-old left backâ€™s contract, which apparently is due to run out at the end of next season.
Babayaro has been out injured since March, first of all with a groin injury, and then lately when he played one Reserve game, he hurt his back and has again been on the injury list.
To say Babayaro is injury prone is a huge understatement, and he played just 66 games for Newcastle in his time at the club, which is now close to three years, since Graeme Souness paid Â£1M for him in January of 2005.
But since Sam and the new regime have been here, it has been fairly clear his time was up at the club, as we look to bring in better and more motivated players. We would also expect Stephen Carr to be next to be moved out during the January transfer window, and also Shola Ameobi looks to us he will move on, as Newcastle look to bring in some new players next month.
