Newcastle manager Kevin Keegan has today said Newcastle are close to another transfer breakthrough.
Kevin Keegan – new signing within 24 hours
Newcastle, as we reported in our squad analysis this morning, have signed Jonas Gutierrez, Danny Guthrie and Sebastien Bassong this summer.
However Kevin has said on Spanish TV, following this morning’s training session, that he hopes to recruit another top player by tomorrow.
Keegan would not reveal the identity of his latest target, (surprise, surprise), but it is no secret the club has been trying to sign Deportivo La Coruna defender, Fabricio Coloccini, for some time now.
Â Coloccini - let’s hope it’s him
Maybe that will be the player, which is consistent with one of our earlier stories today that the deal would need to be ctrlosed today.
We hope it’s Coloccini, and then there will be only three to go to vomplete the squad – keeping our fingers crossed.
