As we were told yesterday Kevin Nolan’s deal to stay long term at Newcastle is almost complete and ready to be signed.
Kevin Nolan – a great captain for Newcastle
Kevin has been in advanced discussions with the club for a good few weeks now as Alan Pardew is hoping to build up some momentum to keep all his good players at the club on long term deals.
Kevin is Newcastle’s top scorer with 12 goals, and he is the lifeblood of the side, and we think could turn out to be one of the best Newcastle captains for a long long time.
This is what Kevin has told the local Newcastle press:
“Most things have been agreed and I would think I will sign next week or the week after,”
“The gaffer and the board have been great about it. It’s almost done and dusted.”
Most Newcastle fans are hoping that once Kevin signs, the n the other leader on Tyneside, Joey Barton, will do exactly the same thing, and then whether Jose Enrique will elect to stay at Newcastle longer term is a very good question.
The odds at the moment are probably against that happening, but we hope he does.
For the record Kevin so far has a fantastic record at Newcastle, with 89 appearances and 30 goals – long may he continue leading Newcastle United. 😀
