We see that Newcastle are now the only Premier League club who have not signed a senior player this summer, but how many Premier League clubs brought in five top players in January? The answer is only one – Newcastle – and many PL clubs brought in no players during January.
Darren Bent – available for around £6M?
So we have to realize that two or three of the players we brought in during January were meant to be summer signings, if we hadn’t been in such dire trouble in the league.
Of course we still need to bring in some players this summer, and two strikers seem to be the priority, and news that Joe Kinnear will go into action to get Darren Bent and Loic Remy, when he returns from his oddly timed holiday and is back at work on Monday.
Manager Alan Pardew has kind of spilled the beans already, when he admitted that both Darren Bent and Loic Remy are Newcastle striker targets.
Loic Remy – Newcastle target
Newcastle fans are getting a little restless right now, and it would be good, very good, if Kinnear can have some success early next week, and get at least one of the two strikers through the door, or another striker we are not aware of at the moment.
