And so, with the Premier League transfer window set to slam shut in less than a week, it remains to be seen if Newcastle United will be able to bring anyone else to St James Park.
With money tight and with Rafael Benitez having to ‘wheel and deal’ we’d be hugely surprised if any serious money was spent on bringing in new players and going some way to appeasing the disgruntled supporters.
However, according to the respected news source, Sky Sports, Rafael Benitez could be about to receive a little extra cash to play with.
According to our referenced source, our young striker, Adam Armstrong, is set to be sold.
The 21-year-old, who was on loan at Blackburn Rovers last season, is set to make a permanent move to Ewood Park for an initial fee of £1.75 million which could rise to £3 million with add-ons.
Now, we accept it’s not a fortune, but everything counts when you’re reduced to the level of ‘wheeling and dealing’ we’ve become accustomed to this summer.
