News that link us today with allowing Emre to move to Galatasary, in order to secure the transfer of Arda Turan – we don’t believe one word of it.
Emre – going nowhere
While we expect journalists to say this, if only because Emre is Turkish, and there have been reports about Galatasary wanting him back, we think Emre can still do a job for Newcastle, if he can stay fit.
He hasnâ€™t had much of a chance to show what he can do yet, but we know Kevin likes the player, and knows he can carve our chances.
And it turns out Emre and Arda Turan have the same agent, Ahmet Bulut,
And Ahmet says that Emre is very happy to stay at Newcastle, and we think thatâ€™s true because he hasnâ€™t yet played under Keegan. Kevin must be a dream manager for Emre, because of the way the 50 times capped Turkish International plays so creatively.
No, we donâ€™t think Emre will have anything to do with the transfer of Arda Turan from Galatasary, other then persuading Arda what a great club Newcastle is.
We want to bring talent into the club in the summer, not lose what we already have â€“ and Emre has definite talent, there’s no doubt about that – if only we could keep him fit.
