Florian Lejeune In Newcastle – Undergoing The Formalities Of His Medical


There’s some excellent news coming through tonight from a couple of local north-east journalists that Florian Lejeune is in Newcastle and he is undergoing his medical, which is expected to go through as a formality.

Being the first day of preseason is a great time to get our second signing through the door this summer and we have been after the 26 year-old Frenchman for weeks now.

The news was out earlier today was that Newcastle Managing Director Lee Charnley had told the Fans Forum members on Thursday night at their meeting at St. James’ Park,  that Newcastle had several signings to be announced soon and Florian looks like he’s the first one over the line.

26 year-old Florian Lejeune – in Newcastle undergoing his medical

Keith Downie of Sky Sports and Lee Ryder of the Chronicle have given the news that Florian should be signed soon and will probably be announced tomorrow.

So what we need is for Florian to be announced tomorrow – maybe even later tonight – and then a couple more signings in the next few days and we will be in much better shape as far as incoming transfers go.

Howay The Bonnie Lads!!

Comments welcome.

Note:

One of our readers Alex Wannop is completing in the GN 10K next Sunday and also the GN Run to collect funds for Tiny Lives, because the Trust provided lifesaving care for his son Isaac, when he was born by C-section and in some distress.

The Tiny Lives Trust funds the Special Care Baby Unit at the RVI where Alex’s son Isaac spent the first few weeks of his life.

Alex is appreciative of the work the great doctors and nurses did to save his son’s life and that’s why he’s raising money.

Please support this very worthwhile charity on Alex’s Just Giving page where there are pictures of his son Isaac – thanks.

    @loch: nah mate, even sneaker than that – arrived at Hartlepool airport in a Flybe, then one of NUFC’s cars (a Blueline) took him to Hartlepool bus terminus so he could get in.

    A very complex operation which saw Barletta escape the opposite way after a cleaner went rogue and refused the strict orders not to leave the door unlocked.

    Can’t get the staff these days.

    Well, that’s one conspiracy theory done away with – we won’t start next season with the same team! 🙂

    Sing, Tbf mate, look at Rio Fernando. He looked like Plug from the Beano, but a canny enough defender all the same. 🙂

    I’d love to see this

    Hart
    Chambers
    Lopez/Mangala
    Lejeune
    Gibbs
    Ritchie
    Shelvey
    Acquah/Samaris
    Grosicki/Bouderbouz
    Gray/Carroll/Bakambu
    Iheanacho

    We have to get some real quality in. 4 or 5 signings will not be enough. If we could line up something like I’ve shown with the competition in the squad coming from the first xi from last season. We look static right now and woefully short on experience/leaders.

    Kamil Grosicki sounds good. I did suggest a pole a few weeks ago, but we ended up with a Pole changing the Blog

    There was obviously truth in the Lejuene link mate. So maybe you might get your wish on some of the players you have listed

    I honestly suggested Grosicki well before being linked. He stood out at Hull and for Poland. Got the right work rate and quality for us in my humble opinion.

    Koeman is shaping them into a top team.
    If they can keep lukaku then there gonna be challenging the top 5 before long.
    They seem to have a lot of youngsters coming through there ranks as well which is always a bonus for any club

    Everton have a problem already – its called Liverpool. That’s the monkey on their back and they’re trying to buy their way past it. Remains to be seen if they can but somehow doubt it.
