If Newcastle want to bring in a striker during the January transfer window, there’s certainly players either to be signed permanently, or are available to come in on loan through the end of the season.
Ola Toivonen – available in January for just £2.5M
One of them is Dutch striker Luuk de Jong on loan, and another is PSV Eindhoven striker Ola Toivonen, and it seems he wants to leave PSV, with his contract running out next June.
There was news a few weeks back that PSV were hopeful of getting the 35 times capped Swedish International (6 goals) into signing a new deal, but it would appear he is open to moving on.
This is what Ola has told the Swedish press about a possible move:
“It looks good, it expires in June,” “We have had a meeting with the club and I told them how I feel. It was an open and honest talk.”
Newcastle, Norwich and Fulham have all been told that Ola is available in January and the fee is only around
£2.5M, so that would be a decent deal for Newcastle.
We’ll have to wait and see if Director of Football Joe Kinnear is now more proficient in bringing in players to the cub in the upcoming January transfer window.
We hope so.
