Having fretted about Oba Martins heading for the Emirates it looks as if we might have been a little quick off the mark here at Vital Newcastle. Arsene Wenger looks set today to sign striker Rodrigo Palacio, who plays for Boca Juniors for a whopping £15m, ruling out any kitty money being left to hit Oba`s £13m release clause. Good news for the club who can now find sneaky ways to get rid of that clause in his contract and prevent any more hassle for when the window opens in January.
