Back in January Perch was mentioned alongside Danny Simpson as one the possible buys we could make and Sky Sports News have confirmed today that NUFC have signed James Perch from Nottingham Forest on a four year deal.
The product of Forest’s youth academy can play anywhere across the backline, and has played in midfield when needed.
James Perch represents Newcastle’s first foray into the transfer market this summer, and no transfer fee has been mentioned for the signing of the 24 year old.
This signing doesn’t really set the world alight, but it’s a shrewd bit of business by Hughton who seems to rate the defender highly. Toon fans, what do you think? Forest fans, have Newcastle signed a goodun’?
