In what has been a very good week for Newcastle United fans, Chris Hughton has said that Geremi may be on his way to Ankaragücü.
Geremi – wants to move to Ankaragücü
Newcastle and Hughton moved impressively to address injuries to key players Steven Taylor and Jose Enrique, by signing both Fitz Hall and Dutchman van Aanholt yesterday.
Apparently Enrique will not play until mid-February, and we have heard that Steven Taylor will be out for up to two months with a knee ligament injury.
Chris said today:
“Fitz is very good on the ground and has got good pace. He’s also a big, strong lad and I’m very pleased that we have him until the end of the season,”
“I certainly liked what I saw that night (Patrick van Aanholt playing for Coventry against us). I’ve also heard a lot of good things about him and is a player who is very highly thought of at Chelsea.”
And one more other bit of business that needs to be completed by Monday is to move out Geremi.
Geremi is expected to leave St James’ Park and the player is said to be in advanced discussions with Turkish club Ankaragucu.
But he will be the only player allowed to depart in January as Newcastle seem to have kept their promises to the Newcastle fans.
“At this moment we are just waiting for final clarification. The indications are that Geremi will go and he has been talking (to Ankaragücü),”
“No one else is leaving. That was something I was always very confident of and I think I had the feeling that here with this group of lads, there is no one who wants to go.”
Move out Geremi and bring in Moses, and it’s the most successful transfer window under owner Mike Ashley’s tenure – and we think Newcastle fans will be energized by the distinct improvement of our squad this month.
Chris and the Newcastle club have got the job done, finally.
