Most Newcastle fans would like the summer transfer window to start, with Newcastle signing at least a couple of very good players early in the window.
Seb Larsson – coming to Newcastle once transfer window opens?
That would be good in a number of ways, because it would not only convince the fans that Newcastle mean business in the summer, but those players already at the club, wondering about Newcastle’s ambitions could also be persuaded to sign new contracts.
And there is some good news in the Newcastle Journal today on that very matter, and the Journal is reporting they have been told that two International players have already been tied up, and will be signed as soon as the transfer window opens.
That has to be good news, assuming the players have quality.
There is no clue as to which players they are, or in which positions they play, but we would think one of them could be free agent Sebastian Larsson.
The Newcastle club were negotiating with the Swedish International winger last January, before Birmingham pulled the plug on the player again, and said he couldn’t leave.
His agent said he was very annoyed at Birmingham, because they kept changing their minds, and he said the Birmingham club could become a bit more professional, and that he had been in negotiations with Newcastle when the plug was pulled.
Nothing usually happens in the early weeks of the transfer window, as most players are off on holiday, so this news could be a big boost to both fans and players at Newcastle.
Maybe the club have an agreement in place with Seb Larsson, and you would think they would have continued the negotiations to make a deal with the Swedish International, when his contract runs out at the end of June.
But of course none of these deals will go through unless Newcastle are playing in the Premier League next season, and the lads will have to snap out of their poor form of late, and at least get on their winning ways against Wolves in the next game a week on Saturday.
Larsson is one player we think could already have a deal agreed at Newcastle, and we have no idea who the other one could be.
Who do you think the two players are?
