We should expect things to hot up in the last four days of this summer’s transfer window, and it seems Newcastle are not letting the grass grow under their feet – or should we say Lee Charnley is not letting the grass grow under his feet – with news this morning that Newcastle have enquired again about Loic Remy.
Micah Richards – could be good signing for Newcastle
And there was news coming out of Italy (Tutto Mercato) yesterday that Newcastle have put in a formal bid for Manchester City’s Micah Richards, who apparently would be keen to come to Tyneside.
And with the news that Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa would be willing to move to Marseilles, Newcastle could try to make that deal a permanent one, and use the money to buy Richards, with the fee for Richards thought to be around £4.4M.
Micah is still a decent player and there are a lot of good players that cannot get playing time at City these days, and his vast experience in England could come in very useful at Newcastle, and the fee seems low if anything.
There was news a couple of weeks ago that Newcastle may have even signed the 13 times capped England International, who has played 245 times for City with 9 goals.
If Newcastle are successful in getting the 26 year-old on Tyneside it would be a good signing and he would be the fourth Englishman signed by Newcastle this summer.
And if we can get Loic Remy and Micah Richards through the door by next Tuesday, this will have been the best transfer window at Newcastle for many years.
