As we had suggested yesterday, Manchester City and Slovakian International winger Vladimir Weiss has joined Rangers on a season-long loan deal.
Vladimir Weiss – completes season long loan deal to Rangers
The Slovakian, who was also wanted by fellow Glasgow club Celtic, completed the switch earlier today in Glasgow, after undergoing a medical at Ibrox.
Weiss, who is just 20 years old, will likely make his debut for Rangers in their Sunday SPL match with Hibernian at Easter Road.
It’s a pity that Newcastle couldn’t have captured this winger, as he provides the spark and the class the Newcastle squad desperately needs for the coming season. Vladimir was just one of the players rumored to be a loan target at Newcastle this summer.
And it looks like Newcastle reported top loan targets this summer of Jack Wilshere, Tom Cleverely and Vladimir Weiss will not be arriving on Tyneside, as Wilshere and Cleverley have been so impressive in pre-season they are staying at their parent clubs for the season.
However, we still expect two loan moves to be completed within the next 11 days by Newcastle, and don’t be surprised if we still get Ben Arfa on Tyneside.
We certainly hope we can get Ben Arfa to Newcastle for the coming season.
