We knew nothing about Newcastle being interested in either Mo Diame and Ciaran Clark on Sunday night, but both could become Newcastle players today – less than two days later – as Newcastle seem to be moving at whirlwind speed to get the two experienced players signed today.
There are multiple reports today that both players will have their medicals today at Newcastle and hopefully when those are successful they will both become Newcastle players.
Mohamed Diame – a Newcastle player today?
Players don’t come in for their medical unless terms have been agreed with the player and his agent, so it seems the only thing left to complete.
It looks like the release clause in Ciaran’s contract is £5.1M and in Mo’s contract it’s £4.5M – so for a very reasonable £9.6M we will get two experienced Premier League players.
You cannot accuse Newcastle in this transfer window of not being aggressive and getting some very good deals for the club.
We have looked very good this summer with the way we are handling transfers both into and out of the club.
Newcastle have already brought in six good players and with Ciaran and Mo that will become eight – and we’re sure Rafa wants at least three more players to make it a full team!
This is very good business for Newcastle United.
Wonder what the status is on Anthony Knockaert.
Newcastle really need to get going and sign this player – what’s holding them up?
