Newcastle Bid Again For Hanley – Hayden Passes Medical

The Chronicle (Lee Ryder) are reporting that Blackburn Rovers have already turned down two bids for Grant Hanley from the Magpies.

Newcastle are still negotiating however and will go in with a fresh bid today – so let’s hope that bid is accepted by Blackburn Rovers.

Grant Hanley – two bids turned down by Blackburn

With Coloccini having already been released to join San Lorenzo last week, you have got to think Rafa was confident of getting a center-back through the door and it seems that Grant is the number one target.

And the news from yesterday is that terms and everything else seem to have been agreed for the deal, with the stumbling block being the transfer fee.

Blackburn are holding out for a bigger payout from Newcastle.

Here are the tweets send out by the Chronicle’s Lee Ryder earlier today:

And the signing of Isaac Hayden from Arsenal – on a permanent deal or a loan deal, we don’t know what it will be – seems to be imminent with the 21 year-old reported by the Chronicle to have passed his medical today.

Comments welcome.
