Chris Hughton is on vacation again this week, but with email and cell phones available these days, things continue to move forward with the Newcastle transfer targets.
Chris Hughton – still working on transfer business on vacation
Newcastle are reported to be in the market for a striker, a right-back, a center-back and a central midfielder, although we’re not sure why we need a center-back – and surely we need another winger.
Funds at Newcastle are limited, but it appears that permanent signings could still be made if Hughton can come up with a good player who is available in the transfer market.
Bit no big transfers will be paid out – and Newcastle again are on the look-out for some real bargains.
Chris Hughton said this morning:
“The phone doesn’t stop ringing just because I’m away on holiday and it is a constantly changing situation. I’ve got to keep up-to-date with what is going on and even though I’m not in the country, I’ll be working on things.”
“One thing I’m positive about is, come the start of the season, we’ll have the amount of players we need to be able to compete.”
“What I’m very conscious of is that we need to add to the squad. It’s something we’ll definitely do.”
“What’s more important is to make sure we bring the right players in.” “If I look at some of the big-name signings this club has made in the past for big money, there’s a realisation that we’re not in those times now.”
It will be very nice once we get the first break-through in the tansfer market – whether it’s a permanent transfer for a fee, a free transfer or a loan signing.
The sooner that happens the more relaxed we will become.
