Both new £4M signing Kevin Nolan (a very good player for that money) and a relieved Newcastle manager Joe Kinnear have been talking this afternoon.
Kevin Nolan – Newcastle midfielder must be very excited right now
Kevin could well go on to become captain at Newcastle United, once Michael Owen leaves the club in the summer.
Kevin told the Newcastle Evening Chronicle after signing for the Magpies:
“It was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down.”
“It’s all happened so quickly, and it was impossible to turn down the chance.”
“It’s a chance to play in front of 50,000 fans at a stadium like St James’ Park.”
“It’s amazing really and I am really looking forward to the next four and half years.”
Newcastle manager Joe Kinnear revealed he was over the moon to have landed Nolan.
The Newcastle United manager said:
“It’s happened very quickly for Kevin.” “I was to determined we would pull out all the stops to bring Kev here.”
“He’s a great leader and a very inspirational player.” “He never knows when he is beaten and he’s got a good eye for goal and bags of experience.”
“I think he’s going to be a very valuable player for us and somebody who can help us climb up the table.”
There’s no doubt this is a good signing for Newcastle, given the terrible situation we are in, and to get such a good inspirational player at the club is good news.
He’s the type of player who gives his all in every game he plays and will soon no doubt be a favorite of the great Geordie fans.
And he makes his debut on Sunday against Sunderland at St. James’ Park – what a way to make your debut at the Newcastle club, but he’ll get a great welcome from the reinvigorated Newcastle fans, that’s for sure.
Now for 4 more good players before Monday!
