Newcastle United boss Joe Kinnear today has said that it is just not true that he must sell before he can buy in January.
Joe Kinnear – yes! I’ve got funds available in January!
Well, we assume Joe knows what he’s talking about even through the Sunday Express on Sunday said while that’s what Joe was saying, their information was that no money would be made available.
We assume the Sunday Express report is nonsense.
Transfer funds being made available is very good news for Newcastle supporters and Joe Kinnear, and even the players, who themselves want to see the squad strengthened in January.
Kinnear has already discussed next month’s transfer business with owner Mike Ashley – and he says there is no pressure to sell from the club’s Board.
Kinnear told the Sunderland Echo this morning that selling before he can buy is just not true:
“It’s not definitely the case.” “The only reason I’d move players out is if they wouldn’t be regulars in the first team. “
“In any case, I wouldn’t be thinking of moving anybody out until I got players in because of the injury situation we’ve got at the moment.”
“We’ve got quite a few players who are long-term injuries, so I definitely need to go out and get new faces in the next transfer window, and that’s what I intend to do.”
It certainly seems that Joe has a good relationship with Mike Ashley, as he does seem to have got Mike to dig into his pockets, which has to be very good for our club, and that’s the most important thing that matters, after all.
It promises to be an exciting January for Newcastle fans, and that makes a nice change from the atmosphere of the last three months at the club.
Howay The Lads!
