Good news today for Newcastle United, Lazio and David Rozehnal.
David Rozehnal – now a Lazio player
It really does look like Newcastle are stepping up their summer transfer business, and today the club announced the good news that Lazio have exercised their option to purchase David Rozehnal.
The sale will mean Newcastle have got the fee they wanted for David, who never quite made it at the club.
It’s being reported the agreed fee is Â£2.8M, which is what we paid for David when he was signed from PSG only last summer.
Rozehnal has looked good for the Czech Republic in the latest games he has played, and it has obviously convinced Lazio that is is worth buying permanently.
David has earned the deal.
There were also several other clubs starting to express interest in the 6’3″ center-back.
That’s more money in the coffers for Newcastle, and another significant wage earner now off the pay roll.
We wish David all the best in Italy, and we think he can do very well in that league.
