Kevin Nolan Completes £4M Move To Newcastle


Sky Sports News is reporting now that Newcastle have completed the signing of Bolton midfielder Kevin Nolan from Bolton on a four-and-a-half-year deal for a fee believed to be in the region of £4M.

Kevin Nolan – now a Newcastle United player – great!

This is a great deal for Newcastle and he will be able to make his debut against Sunderland on Sunday.

Kevin has played more than 320 games for Bolton in his 10 years at the Lancashire club, and it looks like Newcastle moved very quickly yesterday, after an emergency meeting of Joe Kinnear and the Newcastle Board to pursue the player.

The injuries to Joey Barton, who is out 8 weeks with a broken right foot and captain Michael Owen, who is out with an ankle injury for around 4 weeks, seems to have finally propelled Newcastle into action – at last.

We also have a £1.5M bid in for Wigan’s Ryan Taylor who can play either full-back or on the wing, and either left or right side – a very versatile and good player.

Newcastle are trying to get Ryan who wants to move to Newcastle, signed so he can also play against Sunderland on Sunday.

We expect to hear from Kevin on the official Newcastle site shortly, but it looks like he didn’t have much doubts about signing for Newcastle United, that’s for sure, and this will give a big boost to our squad for the game on Sunday.

It’s great to have Kevin at the club.

    Good signing for price, good experience,good work rate and still got years left in him. Would have liked someone a bit more creative but we have to work with the money we haven’t got!

    Nolan for captain on Sunday? Noone else really stands out apart from Butt.

    It’s always the case, every transfer window. Everything is done on the last couple of days. But people forget this.
    Still one swallow does not a summer make and we still need more players in before Monday.

    Pleased with this.

    But it depends if it is Given out and Nolan in, I would expect more if that was the case, but there does appear to be other players in the pipeline.

    I wouldnt be happy if Nolan was in and Zog was out, there would be no midfield advancement in that.

    Zog has to stay, third top scorer cannot be allowed to go, he will play even if he moans, he has moaned before nothing new and still played left back again even though he was supposed to be quitting.

    Sadly Kevin won’t make his debut on Sunday as it is being televised on Sky Sports and they have mispronounced his name as Kevin Noilan. 😀

    Captain wise it WILL be Butt in the absence of MO.

    I would have loved Barton to wear the armband

    Not much time to train in team but should be enough for Sunday.

    COME ON LADS – IS ANYONE STARTING TO FEEL THAT BUTTERFLY FEELING FOR SUNDAY.

    HOWAY THE TOON!!

    Great news. Good to get the first one through the door (not counting Lovenkrands, he was free). Just need a few more and we have reason for optimism.

    I am suprise Derby are letting him go on loan, the word down there is they are going into admin and are desperate for money. They are talking about losing points here so –on loan! Very much doubt they would agree to that!!

    tom tomb Fulham have probably offered a fee for the loan and it would get him off the wage bill.

    leekirtley, thats a good call for the scorers 🙂 wonder what odds you’d get for Nolan to be first scorer lol!!

    Here’s a question for many of you…when you put your team selection on here, why do ALOT of you put Duff upfront when MO/Oba are not available?? We have some decent lads that are natural strikers and you put him up there lol! I want to see Ranger, Carroll & even Smith up there before Duffer :p
