According to The Telegraph, Bournemouth assistant Graeme Jones is on Tyneside and all set to be added to the club’s coaching team – and his appointment could be followed by the arrival of a mystery loan signing.
This comes from Luke Edwards, who claims that the club are ‘close’ to signing an unnamed player on loan, stating that the deal could be confirmed as early as tomorrow.
As for Jones, he watched the game at St James’ Park last night after Newcastle agreed a £250,000 compensation fee with Bournemouth, with his arrival now imminent.
Here’s what Edwards has had to say, confirming a double deal could be announced in the next 24 hours:
The fact Jones’ arrival is a ‘show of faith’ in Steve Bruce is pretty damning considering last night’s defeat made it ELEVEN without a win.
Bruce should be out of a job by now, not getting backed, however it is at least a positive to hear we are close to landing a player on loan.
Hamza Choudhury from Leicester, perhaps? Brandon Williams from Man United? Who knows, maybe even Jetro Willems?
All will be revealed in the next day or so, it seems…
