There has been lots of news recently about Geremi moving to Besitkas, and that the Greek side have bid £1.8M for the player, and Joe Kinnear even said last week the player was thinking it over with his wife.
Geremi – only knows what he reads – just like the rest of us
But it seems that Geremi has been told nothing by the club, about the possible deal, from what the player has told the Shields Gazette today.
If Joe Kinnear can use any money he gets in the transfer market, and the Besitkas bid is acceptable to the club, then how come Geremi has been told nothing formally by the club, and why isn’t Joe trying to push the deal through so he another almost £2M to spend in January?
It seems that Geremi has been told nothing by the club, and it just doesn’t seem to add up. We know the Board has never talked to the players about Keegan leaving, and all the strife that went on in September, October and November, when the players were apparently told no more than the fans, which was nothing.
This hardly reflects well on the way the club is being managed above Kinnear – and what exactly the players know about what is going on.
Remember that Dennis Wise has the responsibility for bringing in the players Joe wants, and for selling the players Joe doesn’t want.
Geremi told The Shields Gazette today:
“I only know what I read in the newspapers and what I hear from my friends, who have been calling me asking what is happening,”
“I have been linked with a few clubs, but I would say my future is here. Newcastle have not told me I am not wanted, and I do not know if they are trying to sell me.”
“What I know is that I want to play for Newcastle. I said when I signed (in 2007) that I wanted to complete my three years. When you are in football you know what you want.”
“I have no intention to move – I love the Premier League – but you can never say never. If the club say they don’t want me, then I would have to think about my future.”
Are we starting to be too picky in our frustrations? Or would you have expected Geremi to know more about the Besitkas deal than he seems to?
Unless of course the deal is just more made up nonsense in the local gossip papers – and of course we know that is always possible.
Well – hopefully all this will sort itself, but we have just 2 weeks left to get players in – and out.
Note that we have absolutely nothing to show for the first 19 days of the transfer window up to now, and yes, we’re sorry to have to keep saying that.
