Newcastle United Reported Back In For Gomis

8 years ago

I don’t care whatever it takes but Newcastle have to bring in extra players before the transfer window slams shut.

With the time left reduced almost to counting hours now, it is reported (yet again!) that Newcastle are now in talks once more with Bafetimbi Gomis.

Sky are reporting that the deal is back on, with the demands of the Gomis camp having slackened.

The player had previously been reported to be happy to see out his contract in the reserves and leave for nothing next June, or on the cheap in January.

Maybe though the brinkmanship is at an end and Mike Ashley may get his victory in terms of nailing down the transfer fee/costs as much as possible but it could prove a hollow victory after the chaotic and costly start to the season.

What difference another striker could have made we’ll never know.

Fingers crossed that this isn’t yet another (hundredth?) false dawn and Alan Pardew has at least some attacking options to play with.
