There is news coming through that Newcastle United have agreed a loan deal with Shakhtar Donetsk for their 23 year-old Argentine striker Facundo Ferreyra.
Facundo Ferreyra – coming on loan to Newcastle
Goal is reporting that Ferreyra has spoken with Newcastle captain Fabricio Coloccini, and the Newcastle captain recommended that he join him at St James’ Park, and not surprisingly we suppose, the 23 year-old has taken the advice of the 38 times capped Argentine International.
Newcastle are now ready to complete the loan move in the next few days, and the famous Tyneside club hope to confirm his arrival early next week.
Ferreyra is one of a number of Shakhtar Donetsk players who want to leave the club – either on loan or permanently this season – because of the fighting going on around the Ukrainian city.
And the loan deal will include an opportunity for Newcastle to sign the player permanently at the end of the season if he does well while on loan on Tyneside.
But this is not the end of Newcastle’s pursuit of strikers.
And it seems we are also after Loic Remy – whose deal to join Liverpool fell through last Monday when he failed his medical – and if the news is to be believed Newcastle are now in negotiations with QPR to get the player on Tyneside – either via a loan deal or on a permanent deal.
