Well we have at least one more new player through the door in Ryan Taylor, and we’ve sold both Shay Given and Charles N’Zogbia, so the club still has money to spend.
Two very happy people 😀
We’ll just have to wait about another hour to see if we’ve managed to bring in any other players.
But Joe Kinnear seems very happy to get Ryan Taylor through the door and said after the signing today to nufcTV:
“I’m over the moon to get Ryan because he is still a young player but one with a lot of experience.”
“He’s played nearly 200 career games and is still only 24.”
“His versatility is tremendous, he can play on the left or the right and in defense or midfield.”
“He’s a total footballer in that he’s got two good feet and is very good on the ball.”
“He’s another Scouse lad like Kevin Nolan with a great character and we’re very happy to get him on board.”
Taylor is still just 24 years old but already has 195 career games under his belt.
Right now we have one more player in the squad than we had on January 1st.
He is Newcastle 3rd signing of the window, with just one hour to go before before the deadline, so we really hope we get at least two more in before the deadline.
We are almost sure we’ll get Daniel Fox, 22 year-old left back from Coventry, if all goes well, and hopefully 20 year-old Michael Johnson from Manchester City, and they would be two more excellent signings.
