There is a report today from Spain’s Mundo Deportivo which details the recent transfer news for La Liga club Alaves. One name at the end of the report that has significance for Newcastle United fans is that of Joselu.
Joselu– could this be goodbye?
The report states that the striker is leaving Newcastle for Alaves. This has been a growing rumour of late which we reported on last month.
The last paragraph of the report translates to the following:
Up front, the Swedish Guidetti already has a first companion with the signing of Lucas Pérez. It is a matter of time before the arrival of the Spanish-German Joselu, who flees from the Premier League, due to the lack of opportunities, in search of regularity and opportunities that he has not had under Benitez in Newcastle. It remains for a time how Garitano will mix so much talent in the line of attack and if there can be any exit movement in the case of the Swede, after his bad season last year.
Even without the coming takeover by BZG, Joselu was most likely on his way out of the club. He featured very little this past year and seems to realize that his future is no longer at Newcastle.
We have admired Joselu’s determination and willingness to give his all. We wish him the best if this latest news turns out to be true.
