News tonight from the Evening Chronicle that Geremi has finally left Newcastle.
Geremi – has left Newcastle
The Cameroon international has completed a move to Turkish side, Ankaragucu, after a deal was agreed with Newcastle.
Geremi was given the number 75 shirt at Ankaragucu, and met with the Turkish media, just like he did at the beginning of this month, when the Turkish club said they had a deal, when they hadn’t.
This time the move has been agreed with Newcastle.
Chris Hughton told the Evening Chronicle:
“We did not want to get rid of anybody but it was different with Geremi as he has not appeared in too many games and he has a World Cup coming up.”
It makes no sense to be paying Geremi £60K/week, when he cannot make the starting eleven in England’s second division, so this is a good deal for both the club and the player.
Geremi joined Newcastle in the summer of 2007, on a free transfer from Chelsea.
With just 17 hours to go before the transfer window slams shut, at the time of writing, we’ll have to wait and see if we bring any other players into the squad.
But there’s little doubt the club has had a good transfer window this time around.
It’s just a pity the team had a bad night last night – but it’s just one single game, after all..
