Alan Pardew Says Newcastle Moving Towards Two More Deals
Speaking to Newcastle’s media partner Sky Sports, Alan Pardew has said that the deal for Daryl Janmaat is, “pretty close.”
While when asked about Emmanuel Riviere (who is reported to have [intlink id=”44943″ type=”post”]flown into Newcastle on Tuesday night[/intlink]), the Newcastle manager said, “That is another one we are talking to.”
With[intlink id=”44917″ type=”post”] leaked photos circulating on Tuesday[/intlink] showing Alan Pardew and Janmaat pictured holding up a Newcastle shirt with the Dutch defender’s name on, it would appear that that particular deal is surely more than close.
With Newcastle heading off to New Zealand on Friday, it looks likely that United may be looking at making a joint announcement for maximum effect, with both Janmaat and Riviere presented at the same time, before the squad head down under.
This is what Alan Pardew said to Sky;
“That (Daryl Janmaat) is pretty close but that is about as good as I can say at the moment, I have obviously been involved in the game today, so I don’t know the details of it.
“That (Emmanuel Riviere) is another one we are talking to, it…it is difficult to say that they are not done.”
