Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson seems to have thought that Newcastle did great in the January transfer window and has given the club an A+ for their transfer window and on contrast he has given Sunderland a C.
Seydou Doumbia with Steve McClaren yesterday
Newcastle did well to do the following deals in the January transfer window.
|Seydou Doumbia||Loan||AS Roma|
|Transfer Fees Out||£29M|
|Adam Armstrong||Extended Loan||Coventry|
|Gael Bigirimana||Extended Loan||Coventry|
|Transfer Fees In||£0.5M|
Newcastle were also the biggest spenders in the January transfer window.
This is what Paul has said about the Newcastle transfer window and the players we brought in:
“They have had a right go in the transfer market and it was 100% the right thing to do.”
“I like what they’ve bought; Andros Townsend and Jonjo Shelvey have played in the Premier League, they’ve played international football, they always want to get on the ball and I really like that.”
And most fans think we have done well also.
Now we have to start winning and Steve McClaren has to start producing – we have a tough game at Everton tomorrow night.
