The Northern Echo is reporting this morning that the deal to bring Daryl Janmaat to the Tyneside club has been completed and it will be announced this morning by Newcastle United.
Daryl Janmaat – deal done!
Newcastle seem to be making some excellent progress this week on some of our transfer targets, and Emmanuel Riviere will be next through the door, with the Monaco striker already on Tyneside ready to complete his move.
Janmaat is no longer in Newcastle and according to the Echo flew back to Holland last night after completing the deal, and we assume that nothing was announced last night because of the pre-season friendly with Oldham – we lost that game 2-1.
And Janmaat’s signing will now mean that Mathieu Debuchy’s deal with Arsenal will also be completed.
And with the deal for Debuchy being close to the £12M Mike Ashley wanted, we get a like for like replacement for Debuchy and are also left with £7M – not a bad deal by Newcastle’s Lee Charnley.
Neither Janmaat nor Riviere will be on the plane to New Zealand for our two pre-season games that will be played next Tuesday and the following Saturday.
And assuming we can get Janmaat and Riviere through the door that will be six signings already this summer – Ayoze Perez, Jack Colback, Siem de Jong, Remy Cabella, Daryl Janmaat and Emmanuel Riviere.
So far so good for this transfer window. 😀
