In what’s got to the surprise of the summer, Kevin Nolan is having a medical at West Ham.
Kevin Nolan – moving to West Ham
Sky Sports is reporting today that Newcastle captain Kevin Nolan is having a medical at West Ham, after terms have been agreed with West Ham..
The Hammers have come back with an improved bid for the former Bolton captain, and Nolan is now talking to West Ham about terms.
This will be a hammer blow to Newcastle fans if Kevin indeed makes the move to play in the Championship next season with relegated West Ham.
Not only is he the captain of Newcastle, but he was the talisman of the side in the last two seasons, and scored 30 goals, 12 of them last season in the Premier League.
We wonder just what exactly is going on behind the scenes at Newcastle and certainly Alan Pardew will not be too pleased at this, but it’s obvious that Mike Ashley decides who comes and who goes at Newcastle these days.
If Kevin does make the move look for Jose Enrique and Joey Barton to also leave the Magpies this summer.
Kevin moved to Newcatsle in January of 2009, and played a total of 91 games for Newcastle with 30 goals, and it will be a complete shock if he leaves Newcastle for a second division side.
We are completely stunned by this news.
