Newcastle, as expected, are bringing 17 year-old Italian, Fabio Zamblera, to the club before the transfer window closes tonight.
Fabio Zamblera – outstanding Italian talent
As we reported yesterday, Zamblera is at Italian club Atalanta, and Newcastle were completing the negotiations with his club today.
Fabio currently plays for the Italian Under-18 side and at 6’3â€ tall is a powerful player, who can score goals. It turns out that Newcastle’s new technical director Jeff Vetere has lined up the move for the very highly-rated striker. Fabio has agreed personal terms and a four-and-a-half year deal, and has passed a medical at St James’ Park. 😀
Certainly we are bringing in some great young players to the club as witnessed last night when the Reserves put in an excellent performance to easily beat North Shields 3-0, and we have all 3 new youngsters, Tozer, Boeteng and Kadar playing the full 90 minutes. In that game, 18 year-old local boy Mark Doninger scored 2 great goals, the second one not unlike Flamini’s goal on Tuesday night at the Emirates (sorry to mention that again).
It’s just a pity we haven’t brought in some senior players during the window, but these youngsters are going to stand us in good stead for the future.
Comments are always welcome – just keep the language decent for the kids.
