Kevin Nolan is talking more of his very suprise move today, after Bolton’s midfielder joined Newcastle in a £4M deal that was all done within the last 24 hours.
Kevin Nolan – ready for the derby on Sunday with his number 4 shirt
Kevin Nolan was at St. James’ Park this morning getting a medical and quickly agreeing the terms offered to him by the Tyneside club on a four-and-a-half year deal.
And the reason it took the Liverpool-born lad such a short time to say yes to Newcastle United?
We’ll let Kevin explain to nufcTV:
“It was impossible to turn down, just the thought of playing in front of 50,000 fans every week and the best fans in the country was too good to say no to really,”
“It was bizarre how quickly it happened with just four days left of the window and I never thought I’d leave Bolton after nine years.”
“But it was a surprise, albeit a nice one, and I can’t wait to get started.” “It was always a club that if I were to leave Bolton I wanted to play for.”
“I’ve played here quite a few times and I’m looking forward to being in a black-and-white shirt now and having the fans on my side.”
“The first game doesn’t come any bigger and it will be the biggest derby I’ve ever played in,”
“I’m sure there will be a few nerves but I’m also excited and just can’t wait.”
“I just hope we can get the win and start moving away from the bottom of the table.”
The signing has been received surprisingly well by the Newcastle fans, because at this particular time Kevin is the exact type of player the club desperately needs, after Joey Barton was crocked for 10 weeks on Wednesday night. And the £4M fee is great business by the club.
This boy has guts galore, great leadership skills, not a little bit of skill, and he can score goals too, and he’s also delighted to be a Newcastle player.
What more can you ask for?
How about a goal on Sunday Kevin, if you really want to hear that famous Gallowgate roar.
