If the betting odds mean anything then Newcastle are getting much closer today to signing the player who seems to be our number one center-back target – Grant Hanley of Blackburn Rovers.
Odds have been tumbling all day on Hanley signing for Newcastle and he’s been quoted from many sources as being keen to join the Magpies under Rafa Benitez.
Grant Hanley – Newcastle’s next signing?
The Chronicle are reporting the only thing holding things up is for the two clubs to agree the actual fee.
Rafa set to make another signing?
