Well it would appear that we have our first signing today as it’s been confirmed that a one year loan deal has been struck for Valencia’s Ignacio “Nacho” Gonzalez.
Ignacio Gonzalez – reports that deal has been completed
While this is not completely official, because it has not yet been announced by the Newcastle club, it has been announced on the Valencia web site, so this is a good sign and we’re almost there.
Valencia Vice-President Fernando Gomez had said yesterday:
“We have many players who can play in midfield and this is an excellent solution for both sides,”So
“We expect the formalities to be completed on Monday morning.”
So it looks like those formalities have indeed been completed this morning, and Ignacio is with us for next season.
We don’t know if a transfer fee has been arranged should Newcastle want to make the deal permanent next summer, but we hope there is such a clause in the deal.
One down, and hopefully many more to go.
Comments very welcome.
