Newcastle have had a very good window and we have lost no senior players in the final days of the transfer window.
Olivier Kemen signed on for Lyon for around £500K yesterday and that has been announced by the club, and Sky Sports are reporting that Haris Vuckic has been given an extension to his contract, which was to run out next summer, and he’s been sent out on a season long loan to Wigan.
Update: Newcastle have since announced this deal and Haris has been given a one year extension, so he stays at the club until the summer of 2017.
Mike Ashley – kept his promise and invested in the squad
Haris will be playing for Gary Caldwell, the former Newcastle defender who is now the Wigan manager, although that loan deal has not yet been formally announced by the club.
We imagine Steve McClaren and the coaching staff are taking a big sigh of relief, now they know the squad through the end of the year – and it looks the strongest for at least three years.
Newcastle spent £50.3M gross and £45.8M net in the summer, the most ever for Newcastle in any transfer window.
