The transfer season for most clubs hasn’t really started yet, but it’s already been a little frustrating for Newcastle United fans, who have seen players leaving but nobody has yet come into the club.
Kevin Keegan – on holiday for the next 2 weeks
It turns out that Kevin Keegan is on holiday and will not return to Tyneside for another couple of weeks, so any transfer business will be being forged by our Recruitment team of Dennis Wise, Tony Jimenez and Jeff Vetere.
Of course Kevin would always be available to talk with transfer targets, if need be over the next two weeks.
It looks like not much will be happening until after the Euro 2008 Championship completes near the end of June, and then we can expect the transfers to start moving ahead with some deliberation.
However, the Championships should not impact the Newcastle targets who are not competing in Euro 2008.
Newcastle are yet to add to their squad and have allowed Turkish international Emre to join FenerbahÃ§e, although that transfer is not yet officially completed.
But there’s no doubt the market remains sluggish right now, and that’s just a little frustrating for Newcastle fans, who are waiting to see the class of player the club can recruit under Kevin Keegan.
