Newcastle have made just one signing this summer so far, and the lad is a junior – 16 year-old Olivier Kemen from Metz – and as well as at least two good strikers being signed up this summer, we expect Newcastle to bring in some top youngsters too.
Jeroen Zoet – Newcastle seem still interested
But news yesterday in Voetbal Intentional that Newcastle may not yet have finished with their bidding for Dutch U21 International goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet.
Here is some of that article – with a decent translation using Google translate:
“PSV goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet (22 years old) can count on Newcastle United in the coming weeks to make a second attempt to try to pick him up.”
“PSV received a bid of €2.5M (£2.1M)from the Magpies two weeks ago , but the club manager Alan Pardew still has Zoet high on the list.”
“The keeper has a contract until the summer of 2014, but PSV has an option of an additional year.” “This still relatively short-term agreement ensures that PSV cannot ask a high price for the young keeper.”
They then talk about Tim Krul, the Dutch International goalkeeper already being at Newcastle, so it seems that Alan Pardew still wants a third goalkeeper brought in this summer, and maybe Jak Alnwick can then be sent out on loan to get some first team experience.
But we expect the priorities in the transfer market is to get two strikers in a soon as possible – preferably Bafetimbi Gomis from Metz and Loic Remy from QPR, although it seems we have new competition for the striker from Tottenham and West Ham respectively.
And with news this morning that 18 year-old Adam Campbell will be going out on loan – we have to think that Newcastle (Joe Kinnear) must be close to a signing or even two signings.
We hope Newcastle are close to two signings.

We are trying to help Ingo Hagemann who is an International student at Northumbria University studying for an MSc in Sports Marketing, and he’s doing a survey as part of his Masters dissertation. The survey is on the controversial sponsorship between Wonga and Newcastle and it takes only five to ten minutes to complete.
Please help Ingo by taking the survey here – many thanks.
