Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has talked about the signing of Nottingham Forest players 20 year-old center-back Jamaal Lascelles and 23 year-old goalkeeper Karl Darlow last night, but there’s just one problem – the deal has still not been announced officially by Newcastle United.
Alan Pardew – we have done good business
Alan was speaking after the 2-2 draw at Huddersfield Town, and he said this last night:
“Every time we sign a player we think it’s good business.” “We think it’s part of what we do.” “It’s our judgement. They are two great assets for Newcastle United.”
Everybody is talking about the two English players Newcastle have signed, and both Nottingham Forest Manager Stuart Pearce and owner and Chairman, Fawaz Al Hasawi have talked about their two players signing at Newcastle, and then being loaned back to Forest for the season.
Hopefully, Newcastle will officially announce these two young Englishman today (Wednesday), and that will make three Englishmen Newcastle have signed this summer, the other one being local lad Jack Colback – a free agent from Sunderland.
And the £7M fee for the two players will take Newcastle’s outlay this summer up to £35M for nine players, and if the news is to be believed, we are not finished yet.
