Queens Park Rangers have today confirmed that Newcastle United have signed defender Fitz Hall on loan until the end of the season.
Fitz Hall – on loan at Newcastle
Sky Sports had reported yesterday that the 29-year-old was about to leave Loftus Road, and that has turned out to be true.
Hall was a target for Newcastle manager Chris Hughton last summer, and he has brought the player in, presumably as back four cover at the club, for the rest of the season.
Other clubs were interested in Hall, but Newcastle were in very quickly for the player, and wrapped up the deal, their 5th capture this January.
Fitz comes in along with Danny Simpson (signed), Mike Williamson (signed), Wayne Routledge (signed) and one month loan signing 19 year-old Patrick van Aanholt from Chelsea, who is cover for the injured Jose Enrique.
Not many fans expected this level of activity in January, we didn’t, and remember the club is still in with a chance to get Victor Moses from Crystal Palace, which would really be something.
A win tomorrow at Leicester City, and the acquisition of James Vaughan from Everton and young Moses from Crystal Palace, and we’d have to get out those blood pressure pills, we’d be so excited. 😀
