It’s been hard to find any good news surrounding Newcastle United today but Toulouse right-back Albin Ebondo has said he knows that Newcastle have players like Owen, Butt, Geremi, Viduka, Martins and so they are a good team with great players. 😀
Albin Ebondo – Newcastle have some great players
Albin Ebondo has revealed he would relish a move to Newcastle United, but to Kinnear’s annoyance the deal is taking a lot longer to tie up than he had been told last Monday.
The Toulouse defender is currently in talks with Newcastle officials in France with the right-back and Newcastle hoping to come to an agreement very soon, becasue form what we can tell this lad is very good, and would be a good sionging for the club.
The two clubs are yet to agree a fee, which they’ve been haggling over for about a week now, and the £3M-rated right-back has said he would be very pleased to join Newcastle United:
“I am flattered by the interest shown by Newcastle for me.”“I have always been ambitious.”
” I want to join the Premier League, which is for me the biggest league in the world.”
“My dream is for the two clubs to agree a fee, however if he does not happen it is not the end of the world.”
“I know some Newcastle players, not personally, but because they are popular players such as Owen, Butt, Geremi, Viduka, Martins.”
“So they are a good team with great players.” “If the manager wants me, that means I can add something to the team.”
“I think there is some details to put together, but nothing is done yet, but it is not far. That is my feeling.”
From what we hear, Albin is on the verge of being called up for the full France squad, so he looks a good player in the making.
But if we get Albin through the door, who else will be arriving?
It looks like Given and N’Zogbia may be on their way, and Owen and Barton are out though injury for at least a couple of months.
We’d like to see at least another 3 players in addition to Albin, and we shouldn’t let Charles go until the summer, if we have any sense.
But at this late stage in the transfer window, we’ll take as many good players as we can get into the club before Monday afternoon.
