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.
