Reports – Multiple Signings To Be Made By Newcastle

Since Newcastle have had no success so far this season,  it would be good if we can do a double signing next week,  before we play our first pre-season game at Gateshead on Friday night.

And we reported earlier today we have  bid 15M for Charlie Austin, and with Sunderland having dropped out of the race for Georginio Wijnaldum Newcastle are in pole position to sign him.

Charlie Austin – can we rally get this striker in?

We are also supposed to have had a bid lodged for long term target Florian Thauvin, plus his team-mate at Marseilles – 22 year-old French U21 midfielder Mario Lemina.

We hope those reports are true, but of course it is Sunday, when we tend to get a lot more stories on transfers about to be completed – to help sell the Sunday papers.

But Sky Sports reporter Pete Graves is tweeting that it’s his understanding that Newcastle have made some very good progress in the last few days, and could announce more than one signing next week.

Here’s Pete’s Twitter account and most of his tweets are associated with Newcastle so you can read them there, and even Luke Edwards of the Telegraph is getting involved in the tweets.

Here are just three of Pete’s tweets – although he is getting challenged by fans that he’s just making these up.

It would be a huge plus for Newcastle and the fans if the club can indeed get two or more top targets into the club next week.

It can happen – keep the faith – even through it’s difficult.

Comments welcome.
