Alan Pardew will be keeping in close contact with Joe Kinnear this week, as Joe tries to bring in at least one more striker, a winger and a back up goalkeeper over the last three weeks of the summer transfer window.
Alan Pardew - relying on Kinnear to bring players in
Most of the transfers occur late in the transfer window, so we suppose we shouldn’t worry too much at this point, but at the very least Newcastle need to bring in one more top striker, and over the last couple of days there have been rumors Newcastle were after a striker in Belgium, but no real clue as to who that may be.
It’s an important week for the club, and with the news yesterday that Newcastle may have pulled out of the race to sign Lyon’s Bafe Gomis, things are not looking too great at the moment ion the transfer front.
This is what Alan Pardew said in the local press today about the transfers:
“It’s important that I know where he is on the transfer front and I know what chances we have of securing one or two others.”
“That contact is always going to be there now. I will speak to him throughout this very important week. He will do whatever he can to help me.”
And it’s looking like Jonas will miss our first game of the season at Manchester City next Monday, and Alan said this about Jonas’ injury he picked up against SC Braga on Saturday:
“It’s around the buttock. That’s where your power comes from. We need to be careful on that.”
Newcastle will play Liverpool behind closed doors today to sharpen up for the Premier league start, and we suppose if Jonas cannot play either Sylvain Marveaux or young Sammy Ameobi could get the start at the Emirates.
But the thing on the mind of Newcastle fans right now is who Newcastle will bring in over the three weeks still remaining in the transfer window – that’s the only thing that matters right now.
