After Cabella Capture – Another Top Signing Imminent

It seems that Newcastle United – led by Managing Director Lee Charnley – are starting to produce the goods in this summer’s transfer window, and after yesterday’s fantastic capture of Remy Cabella from Montpellier, the news is that Daryl Janmaat is jetting into Newcastle to have a medical and sign along the dotted line.

Daryl Janmaat – signing for Newcastle today

We had the news out earlier today that Dutch reports had Newcastle agreeing a £5M fee with Feyenoord for the right back, and we have to  believe the wages have been agreed and therefore the next thing is for Daryl to take a medical and then sign along the dotted line.

The news is now being reported by the Shields Gazette and Daryl will become Mathieu Debuchy’s replacement.

It also looks like Newcastle have held the deal up with Arsenal for Debuchy until they have a replacement signed, and that’s another good and sensible move by Newcastle.

The news in the Dutch press is that Janmaat will sign a six-year deal with Newcastle, as Remy Cabella did yesterday, but there could be a hitch as Daryl is currently sick – so the actual medical may not take place until tomorrow.

Daryl played well for Holland during the World Cup and although he doesn’t have the same experience as Mathieu, he will quickly learn the ropes in the Premier League – and £5M is an excellent deal that Newcastle have negotiated with his club.

And keep your seat belts fastened, because we could see 24 year-old striker Emmanuel Riviere of Monaco as the next one through the door before the end of the week – if not sooner.

Things are starting to look up a bit at Newcastle. 😀

Comments welcome.

Note: Sean Borland has a student season ticket and since he will be away in Calgary studying for a while he wants to sell his season ticket for the first half of the season. The price is £140 – which is what he paid for it – you can contact Sean at

    Being battered about the head with his empty cheque book is too good for Ashley.

    Not sure who the posters were that said there wouldn’t be any signings this summer, must be those of below average intelligence that TDSarf was slagging off yesterday on his new blog.

    it could be with the coaching staff that we will there contracts expire and replace rather than paying them off

    they said in one of the fans forums a while ago they were looking to overhaul the coaching and they seem to have made a start

    but getting info out the club is like getting blood out of a stone

    So, turns out we’ve paid £7m for Cabella with no add-ons. Now get a ST worthy of his supporting cast, the money is there!

    So at long last we welcome Remy Cabella to SJP.

    What’s the current situation with Loic Remy? Last I heard / read, Arsenal had lost interest in him. What chance do you think we have of maybe either getting him on loan or even signing him now? For one, I’d welcome him back with open arms.
