Deal Set Up To Bring Centre-Back To Newcastle Now Blocked By Joe Kinnear
An interesting transfer story has just been broken this morning.
With Newcastle United fans awaiting the first (first team squad) signing of the Summer, it is now reported that United had a deal set up before Kinnear’s appointment and he has now put the block on it.
Sky Sports are saying that their information is that a deal was in place to bring long-standing speculated target, Douglas, to St.James’ Park. The player available for free after seeing out his contract at FC Twente.
However, Sky have reported that the move which was expected to be concluded this week has now been blocked by Joe Kinnear.
The 25 year old defender was apparently due to fly in with his representatives on Thursday but they have now been informed not to bother, with Kinnear apparently having other targets in mind.
It would be cruel to say (but these are desperate times) but we understand that Joe, using all of his knowledge and experience, has instead decided to bring in Terry Butcher and Warren Barton.
