There is news coming through on Sky Sports News that Newcastle have signed Mike Williamson, from Portsmouth, to a three and a half year deal.
Mike Williamson – signed for Newcastle?
That’s not official, but reports are coming through that Chris Hughton has been seen to SSN , saying that Newcastle have indeed signed the player to a three year contract.
If true, Mike would be the second defender Newcastle have signed in the January transfer window, with Danny Simpson having signed up last week.
We’ll have to wait until it’s reported by the club, on their web-site of course, so we’ll keep a lookout for an announcement shortly.
Some fans don’t think this lad is good enough, but we have a feeling he could turn out to be a decent signing – but we’ll all see. Why do we think that way? Because we live in perpetual hope.
If he has been signed he may even be in the team for Wednesday night against Crystal Palace, but we’ll not jump the gun on that one.
The first thing is to sign the lad and have it be official. 😀
