Pardew Confirms Shola Out Of Africa

8 years ago

Running alongside the usual transfer window charade, we’ve had the African Cup of Nations sideshow.

Now Sky Sports are claiming a final conclusion, reporting that Alan Pardew has announced that Shola definitely won’t be going.

Whether Nigeria will try and do anything through FIFA is another matter but hopefully this has put an end to a saga which could have seen Newcastle deprive dof their supersub for what could be a very tricky 4-6 weeks, with Cheick Tiote probably playing his last match on Wednesday before he heads off for the tournament.

We all wait to see what the outcome of the transfer window will be and while I’d love to see Newcastle retain Demba Ba AND bring in another quality striker, it would take a brave man to bet on Shola not being third choice striker at the very least, when the window eventually closes.
