Newcastle United may have got all the players they are bringing in this summer, already at the club.
Chris Hughton – there may be some late developments
It seems there are some difficulties arising with the potential loan deal for Robbie Keane, and not the least of which is that it seems he doesn’t want to come to Newcastle.
And there was some doubts placed on strike target Ricky van Wolfswinkel of FC Utrecht, because Newcastle are unlikely to want to spend £8M on the 21 year-old.
There’s a chance Newcastle could get 19 year-old Greg Cunningham from the Eastlands club, as left-back cover for Jose Enrique, but no chance Newcastle will now get Roque Santa Cruz, who may even be on his way back to Blackburn Rovers on loan.
And the latest rumors concerning Robbie Keane is that Turkish club, Besiktas, have launched a surprise bid to sign the Tottenham Hotspur striker on loan, but there’s no way Robbie will go to Turkey.
Of course there are also the latest daft rumors going on at Sky Sports, where they are asking for latest news from the fans – and of course they are getting the usual stuff – like – I was at the airport today and saw Cristiano Ronaldo – and it looks like he’s signing for us. Yeah right, that kind of stuff.
Two silly rumors involving Newcastle are that Emile Heskey has been seen at the Benton training ground and that former Newcastle midfielder Jermaine Jenas, of goldfish bowl fame, is on his way back to Newcastle from Spurs.
As we said they are daft rumors – let’s rephrase that – we hope they are daft rumors. 😀
