Speaking about his recent deadline day move from the Wanderers, midfielder / centre half Abdoulaye Fate has revealed he`s made up about choosing Newcastle over the band of clubs from the northwest he had offers from. Speaking to the Gerbil, he said:

‘I had offers from other clubs, it wasn’t just Newcastle. Manchester City, Everton and Wigan all wanted me to join them, but I told them all, ‘No, I would prefer to go to Newcastle and work with Sam again’. I felt that joining Newcastle would be the perfect move for me because this is such a big club – it’s so different to Bolton. I’m pleased it all worked out. Newcastle is such a great club and things couldn’t have gone better.’
