Good news today that Plymouth Argyle youngster Aaron Spear will finally complete his move to Newcastle United this coming week.
Aaron Spear – will join Newcastle this coming week for Â£250K
That’s after the clubs have agreed on a Â£250K transfer fee for the 15 year-old youngster, who has been termed the new Wayne Rooney, we hope he turns out that way.
The long-running saga, in which Newcastle beat off strong competition from other clubs, including Arsenal, will reach a conclusion with the 15-year old striker moving to Tyneside this week.
It seems that Plymouth Argyle were first offered Â£150K for their top youngster, but held out for more cash and a deal has now been made between the two clubs. This will be good news for Newcastle fans.
And it’s a big success for Dennis Wise, the Newcastle Executive Director, along with our new scout Lil Fuccillo, who we reported visited Plymouth in June to speak to Spear and his parents.
It was after that meeting that Spear decided that Newcastle United was the club he wanted to join, and told his friends down there that he would would chose Newcastle over all the other clubs that were after him, which also included Portsmouth and Everton, as well as Arsenal.
Spear, is currently on schoolboy terms at Home Park, and the current FA rules state his club are entitled to receive a fee if the youngster moves to another club.
We’re pleased this deal has been sorted out, at long last, and this could prove to be a significant signing for the club over the longer term.
