It looks like Newcastle have at least one new player in today as Sky Sports is reporting the Stephen Ireland loan deal has been completed.
Stephen Ireland – deal done according to Sky Sports
It’s good to have some good news in on this bad day for Newcastle – well at least so far.
News is coming through that Newcastle may be after 29 year-old Swedish Striker Johan Elmander, and being flush with cash from the Andy Carroll deal, the Magpies should be able to persuade Bolton to part with the player today, since his contract runs out in the summer, when he’ll become a free agent.
While he didn’t look too good initially at Bolton, Elmander has so far had a very good season under new Bolton manager Owen Coyle, and maybe could be a decent acquisition by Newcastle.
And there are reports that Newcastle are after Carlton Cole – so we have to hope these are not true.
We hope more players will come through the door then just Stephen Ireland, in the remaining three hours of the transfer window.
