It looks like Andros Townsend will be a Newcastle player within 24 hours as he has given an interview with Sky Sports and Newcastle fans are just going to love this guy – he has said he only ever wanted to join Newcastle once he heard the famous north-east club wanted him.
Andros Townsend – a Newcastle player within 24 hours
Andros has given his first interview since he has agreed to join Newcastle United and this is what he said to Sky Sports:
“As soon as I knew of Newcastle’s interest, they were the only club I wanted to join.” “I can’t wait to play my first game at St James’s Park.!”
“Two of the best positions you can play in football are center-forward and left-wing at Newcastle.!”
“I’ve got the chance – I could never turn that down.!” “I can’t wait to play my first game at St James’s Park. I’m excited!”
A fee has been agreed between Spurs and Newcastle and it seems it’s an initial £10.5M then bonuses that could bring the fee up to £12M.
It also looks like terms have been agreed and Andros will be on Tyneside tomorrow and the deal is expected to complete within 24 hours once he successfully completes his medical.
Andros has a fantastic chance to become a hero on Tyneside, because if he can come in and play well for us and help us survive this season – then he will be a real hero on Tyneside.
This is a great signing – assuming it goes through – and Lee Charnley and the recruitment team deserve great credit in difficult circumstances for getting this one over the line.
Now to get a top striker through the door.
