What’s The Deal For Newcastle United On Celtic Goalkeeper?

8 years ago

Following hot on the heels of Tim Krul’s amazing heroics at Tottenham, I see Ex-Mag Fraser Foster looks like making his England debut, and good luck to him too because I think the England jersey is up for grabs following Joe Hart’s recent performances.

I must admit I thought it odd Fraser was allowed to sign for Celtic, because he was obviously a major young prospect, AND the fee of I believe £2million seemed meagre.

Clearly if he make a success of his England opportunity, big Fraser is almost certain to be sold for a seriously large fee and that then begs the question; did the administration at Newcastle have the sense to build in a sell on clause into the contract with Celtic?

As an optimist I would like to think we have a 20 per cent plus deal in place which could turn into a handy few million towards our transfer fund, or even Joe Kinnear’s severance pay if we were lucky.

Unfortunately, my pessimistic side takes over and makes me think we will get a nice big pat on the back from Celtic for handing them £££’s on a plate and  a big fat nothing.

Could someone ask Mr Pardew, I’d be very interested to know.
