Newcastle Veteran Due In Hull For Medical Today

8 years ago

A deal that has been on the cards for some days looks likely to be concluded today.

The local press in Hull are reporting that Steve Harper is set to take his medical in the next few hours and then sign a one year contract.

Steve Bruce had said he wanted to add an experienced keeper to make his strength up to three in the between the posts department.

It looks like a good deal for everybody as Harper can just commute from his family home and it extends his playing career, something which players can live to regret if they pass up the chance to do so.

How big a playing part Harper will actually play is likely to depend on fitness and injuries to his competitors.

Whatever happens he leaves with our best wishes and good luck for the coming season, though I can’t quite find it within me to wish his Steve Bruce managed team the same.
