All Quiet On Newcastle Transfer Front

There’s just 4 days to go until the end of the January transfer window and with the breakdown of Jonathan Woodgate’s transfer to Newcastle, it could be that we’ll get nobody in during January.


Chris Mort and Kevin Keegan – no movement in transfer market – yet

We of course have been linked with many different players but Keegan has already said that he will only bring in players in January who have the experience to play immediately in the Premier League.

One player that fits that category and we are said to be interested in, is Pascal Chimbonda, the Tottenham right back. However, with Stephen Carr playing well, and Habib Beye, our number one choice, coming back from the African Cup of Nations, that acquisition wouldn’t seem to strengthen the squad too much.

What we do need is a good creative central midfielder and perhaps a striker who can put the ball in the net. We hope the rumor that we’re after Giles Barnes from Derby County is true, and there are a few strikers still available who could strengthen our squad, including West Ham’s Dean Ashton.

But we are very surprised that nobody had come into the squad yet, since it’s 11 days since Kevin took over as manager of the club.

We’ll just have and see what, if anything, happens through Thursday evening.

What do you think – comments very welcome.
