Nolan bid rejected – Cabaye to complete transfer on Friday.

Nolan safe, for now.
Panic over. After my own initial fear that Newcastle would take the chance to cash in on Kevin Nolan it appears that the same newspaper that broke the story is now reporting that the bid has been rejected.

And quite rightly rejected for £3 million aswell. If Jordan Henderson is worth £20 million then Kevin Nolan is certainly worth more than £3 million, if anything just for the goals and leadership that he can, and usually does, bring to the team.

Of course it doesn’t mean that another offer won’t be made in the very near future as this initial bid could be the start of some more serious bids, and not just from West Ham either as other clubs will have no doubt been alerted to the situation regarding Nolan and his failure to agree a new deal at St James’ Park.

In other news, and more positive news, it looks like Friday is the day that Newcastle will confirm the signature of Yohan Cabaye from Lille. The Chronicle is reporting that Cabaye will fly into Newcastle and complete a medical before finalising a deal that will see him signed on at Newcastle for the next five years.

Completing the Cabaye signature would signal our first proper breakthrough in the transfer market this summer. There have been tentative rumours suggesting that French youngster Mehdi Abeid has signed for us, although with yet to be confirmed the capture of Cabaye would officially be the first bit of business with regard to transfers in at Newcastle.

It shouldn’t stop there though, and I don’t think it will. The club know what needs to be done, we know what needs to be done, now it’s just matter of the club coming up with the goods. That is where the philosophy could fall apart.

Plus I’m putting copyright on my headline from the other day: Cabaye the lad!
