Jermaine Aliadiere - possibly Newcastle signing
Short-term solution?
Thierry Henry looks like being a non-starter but Jermaine Aliadiere might be an option to shore up Newcastle United’s striking options.

According to some press reports Jermaine Aliadiere is in talks with Newcastle about joining the club until the end of the season. Admittedly the reports seem to have started in the Daily Mail as far as I can tell, but if they can spare column inches from telling us we’re all going to perish horribly then maybe there’s something in it.

Thierry Henry was allegedly a target to bolster our depleted striking options but Alan Pardew has pretty much written that one off, saying:

I don’t think getting Henry is possible.

I haven’t even thought about it, if I’m honest, but we will do over the next 48 hours.

There are one or two players we are looking at.

I don’t think we are going to get anyone who could impact on the first team, but on the bench, I need to turn round to that bench and have people who can affect the game.

We will look, perhaps, to that market for maybe one or maybe two if necessary.(more…)
