The Times is reporting today that Newcastle United are still confident of signing Toulouse right- back Albin Ebondo, before the transfer window closes in about 76 hours time, at 5:00 pm on Monday afternoon.
Abin Ebondo – Newcastle still very keen on player
Why this deal has dragged on since last weekend is beyond us, and of course Joe Kinnear said yesterday that Toulouse had raised their price from £2.5M to £3M, but he also seemed frustrated the deal was dragging on for so long.
But given the dire situation we are now in with our squad, with lots of our players out injured, you would have thought the Newcastle Board would have made an extra push yesterday to get Ebondo signed so he could play against Sunderland on Sunday – wouldn’t you?
Why are Newcastle making it look like it’s so very difficult to get players signed?
£500K is not the type the type of money that should be stopping Newcastle from bringing in a more than decent player to Tyneside, to strengthen our squad, and potentially keep us in the Premier League.
Please get this lad signed today.
