There’s a chance that Alan Pardew will announce his second signing in January before the game at Stevenage on Saturday.
David Bentley – could be good signing for Newcastle – on loan?
Of course since the injuries picked up last night against West Ham, Alan is even more keen to bring in a new player before the FA Cup 3rd round game – but hopefully not Robbie for £7M.
But it’s important for Newcastle to bring in the right players, and we’d like to see some additional class in the squad.
Ben Arfa was a great signing and one player we really fancy is Spurs winger David Bentley.
But the London club seem to be asking ridiculous and unreasonable fees for their players – but a loan deal would suit Newcastle just fine, if they can persuade Tottenham to do a deal.
This is what Alan said today:
“We’ve made a few enquiries, and are talking to one particular club trying to get a deal done before the weekend,” “It think that’ll be quite important now.”
It will be interesting to know who that player is, and whether Newcatsle will continue to go after younger players, or plump more for experience in this particular transfer window.
