Alan Pardew has said at his press conference today, for the important game at home to Aston Villa on Sunday, that he thinks that could be it, and Newcastle have not lost any of their top players, and haven’t brought any new players in since we got Vurnon Anita through the door from Ajax for £6.6M.
Newcastle paid £6.6M for Vurnon Anita from Ajax
There’s always the possibility that something can happen today, and Newcastle are probably now checking around to see if there is a suitable defender they can bring in to fortify the defensive ranks, after Ryan Taylor suffered what looked like a serious knee injury last night.
But it’s very unlikely any new player will now arrive, and if a big club was going to make a move for one of our top players, you would have thought they would have made their move by now – with just under nine hours to go before the window slams shut.
So it seems Newcastle have a net spend of £3M, and here are the major players who have left the club, and come into Newcastle this summer.
|Alan Smith||MK Dons||Free||Out|
|Tamas Kadar||Roda JC||Free||Out|
|Leon Best||Blackburn Rovers||£3M||Out|
|Gael Bigirimana||Coventry City||£1M||In|
|Curtis Good||Melbourne Heart||£0.4M||In|
We think the four players who have been brought in – Romain Amalfitano, Gael Bigirimana, Curtis Good, and Vurnon Anita – are all very good value, and will only improve on Tyneside.
How do you think this window has gone this summer?
