It’s looking unlikely that Newcastle United will add to the five players they have so far brought through the door this summer, with the transfer window slamming shut in just over two hours time.
Tom Cleverley – joins Wigan on season long loan deal
Sky Sports is reporting that they understand Wigan Athletic have signed Manchester United youngster Tom Cleverley, on loan for the season.
It seems that Alex Ferguson has been persuaded by the 21 year-old, to send him out on loan to the DW Stadium, where he should no doubt get lots of games.
The signing is seen as a coup for Wigan’s Spanish manager Roberto Martinez, and Wigan certainly need some strengthening, but it’s not clear whether Newcastle were still interested in the player, once Ben Arfa arrived from Marseilles on Saturday.
However, if the Wigan signing is true, then Martinez beat out Bolton Wanderers, since Owen Coyle was very keen on the youngster, who is an excellent young player of course, and it’s a very good signing for the Wigan club.
No more news yet on any potential new Newcastle signings.
