It was good to see Newcastle move today to complete as deal that takes Xisco to Racing Santandar for a season loan, and it was a good move for both the club and Xisco himself.
Peter Lovenkrands – set to sign?
There is now news that Skysports.com are reporting that our signing from Atalanta in January, 2008, Fabio Zamblera, looks set for a permanent move back to Italy with Roma.
Dennis Wise signed Zamblera but he’s one youngster who has never looked the part in England, and has never appeared for the first team.
Roma are expected to tie up a deal for the big striker before the transfer window closes on Tuesday.
And the Evening Chronicle are reporting that Xisco’s move will allow Newcastle to offer Lovenkrands a decent deal to come back to Newcastle.
Since Xisco was on around £50K/week it reduces the wage bill to bring in Lovenkrands, who we think will be a great signing for us – and will help us get back to the Premier League hopefully this season.
That’s if we can get him, but the chances have to be pretty good, And since peter can play on either wing and as a striker, he will get a lot of games at Newcastle this season – and he’s a classy player.
If these moves all go through they are smart moves by Newcastle – so far so good – but we need more players in.
And if Coloccini plays tonight, that must signal he’s going nowhere, and that will be good too, because Fabricio never seems to get injured, which will be great this season, since we have a small squad, at least until January.
