It doesn’t look like we will be bringing in any players in this winter transfer window – so the bottom line is that we sent out six players on loan, and sold one player permanently.
Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa – sold to Roma
So that’s seven players we have let leave Newcastle in this January transfer window and not brought one in.
We lost out to Tottenham for Dele Alli and the deal was confirmed and he is delighted to join such a big club as Tottenham.
It may have been the speech he had made up on Wednesday, and simple replaced Newcastle with Tottenham?
Mike Ashley will be counting up the wages the club will save, with those players being sent out, and the loan fees the club will get, plus the £5.5M we got from Roma for Yanga-Mbiwa.
So it was a case of players going out, and the money flowing into the club in terms of one transfer fee, multiple loan fees. and saved wages.
And what did we do for the Newcastle squad – well we didn’t make it any stronger – that’s for sure.
Does this sound familiar?
And we almost forgot we got as much as £4M for Alan Pardew as compensation when he moved to Palace.
Have we said before that Mike Ashley only thinks about saving and making money at Newcastle United?
This is a good example of that.
Mike’s helped out his other club Rangers FC big time, but done nothing (what again?) for Newcastle United.
That’s the truth – at least in this window.
And the sad thing is there is no way things will improve one iota, as long as Mike Ashley owns the club.
