Alan Pardew has come out today and said that three deals are being worked on by the club as they look to add depth and quality to the squad in preparation for the new season.
Naturally the naming of names is something that has been avoided although I’d imagine we can pretty much guess who the three players are – Andy Carroll, Mathieu Debuchy and either Vurnon Anota or Douglas. Or maybe it’s none of them?
The other pleasing thing is that Pardew says we are considering all players who become available over the summer. That’s not to say we’ll suddenly be spending swathes of cash, but instead we will consider of a player is of any value to us and whether it’s worth trying to make a deal happen for.
“Any big player or good player that comes to the table, we need to be involved in it,” Pardew told The Chronicle.
“We need to know what is going on. What is the price? Can we do it, can we afford it? If we can’t we go somewhere else.”
“We want the best quality players and at the moment we have three possible transfers actively being pursued in terms of bids and trying to get a deal where the other club gets what they want and we get what we want.”
As it should be, only the best for Newcastle United, and if they can pull it off I’ll be happy enough with what has been achieved in the transfer market.
Anyway only a short one today folks as I’ve got a bit on today. Who are the three and have we a chance of actually seeing the turn up at St James’ Park? Is three enough?
