Ebondo expected as Toon tackle transfers

Words by Kevin Doocey on .

Ebondo - Expected in Toon soon

Albin Ebondo, Toulouse’s right back is expected to be a Magpie no sooner than tomorrow. Kinnear who identified M’Bia as a target also suggested that Albin was on their shortlist and that a deal could be in the works. Today Kinnear spoke openly about his attraction towards Ebondo and hinted that he could be a Newcastle player very soon indeed. It would be just what we need too as the transfer window hots up, with Given looking set for City and new rumours suggesting Michael Owen could be soon gone, us Magpies need reinforcements, sooner the better too 🙂

Joe said:

_’__A team from Newcastle has been over there talking to the club and the player and we’re confident he’ll be here on Monday,“We will work right until the final minute of the final day of the window to bring in the players we want.

‘We are working around the clock to get the players we need but it’s not an easy time of the year to do business and it’s been hard work.’

_‘I do feel as though we are getting somewhere and if I can bring in the two players we’re close to agreeing deals for then I’ll be feeling a lot happier about the state of the squad,’ added Kinnear.‘I identified Albin Ebondo when I went to see Toulouse play a few weeks ago and he will be an excellent player for us, I’m confident about that.

‘Hopefully he’ll be here on Monday and in training with the rest of the squad straight after that.’_

I for one would be happy to secure the signature of Ebondo, touted as a future French international (although 24 😀 ) either way I’d take him at Newcastle thank you very much and I’m sure most Geordies would like to see him in for the derby 😀

Comments appreciated 🙂

Ever seen a mackem in Milan?: ⏱ 26/01/2009

Nice website! :D Really hope we sign him Taylor is always being caught out of position at right back. Only 24 aswell so he has room for improvement. Any ideas on how much he would cost us?

Keep it up Doocey. Tis kidlooks a tidy buy as will provide cover for Beye and at the same time learn a lot from him. Which is what I feel is letting Jose down on the Left someone to push him and learn from. On the Given situation, I really dont want him to leave but it is a situation where we have more than adequate cover and will ensure Krul and Forster stay to fight it out for the bench place. Owen.----------BYE!!!!! I feel he has been almost as bad a buy as Luque never come to the plate when we really have needed him especially of late and at around £1.5 million per goal has been a disgusting return from the man we took back to England when no-one else wanted him.
