As per our customary summer transfer escapades of signing absolutely no-one, the latest name to be linked with Newcastle United is Andre Ayew. NUFC are apparently readying a bid of £8.5 million, and that is said to be enough to persuade Marseille to do a deal. Whether that happens remains to be seen, but with the second game of the season, and no further signings coming in, we are quite literally at the barebones in terms of players.
Of course, this could all be a load of bollocks. Time will tell. Glad to see our Director of Football earning his keep!
