Joe Kinnear was interviewed on Sky Sports today and he says he’ll know within 48 hours whether two loan signings, for which the fees have already been agreed, come through.
Joe Kinnear – two loan signing fees already agreed
Joe made a point of adding they were two expensive loan fees for two players.
This is what Joe Kinenar told Sky Sports today:
“We’ve got one or two players, again because it’s an emergency situation at the moment, who we may be taking.”
“We’ve agreed a loan deal for two players, two expensive loan deals, again through the end of the season, because of the crisis we’ve got injury wise.”
“I’ll possibly know about these within 48 hours, and if that is AOK we may be in a better position for the Blackburn game.”
We’ve got to think these two players are very decent if the loan fees are high, and Joe seems hopeful they will come through, and before the Blackburn game possibly, so they could be part of the squad for that game.
That sounds good news, because we knew we would make loan deals, so better get those in as quickly as possible.
And with Peyter Lovenkrands due to sign a deal through the end of the season on Friday, that could be 3 new players in through the end of the season, and we think more players to follow.
Kinnear said he knew Lovekrand’s agent many years ago and when he heard Peter was available last week, he immediately brought him to Newcastle.
So the link with Lovenkrands came through Joe, and remember the former Wimbledon manager knows lots of scouts who keep him well informed on good up and coming players.
Joe told Sky Sports Peter’s done extremely well in training over the last two days, and the player has already been offered a contract and verbally accepted it.
Things may be getting better – hope so.
Let us know who you think the loan singings are – we think one could well be John Arne Riise.
Howay The Lads!!
