Romain Amalfitano - Latest Toon signing?
Amalfitano: Bringing "Champagne football" to Newcastle?
As regular readers of this site will know, we usually bring you the hottest Toon news first.

Well, back in early March, I wildly speculated reported that Stade de Reims midfielder, Romain Amalfitano, had signed a pre contract agreement with Newcastle United. In truth, I wasn’t quite the first to report it. The Independent ran a fairly insignificant story reporting that Derek Llambias was “happy” with the club’s latest set of accounts, but tacked on to the end was this:

“The club yesterday completed the signing of the French winger Romain Amalfitano from Reims on a three-year deal.”

Which was odd. No one seemed to take a blind bit of notice of it at the time apart from yours truly, so I did some background research on it, eventually tracking back to this story from the in France sports journal, “L’Equipe”, which went as follows (according to my rough as a bear’s arse French translation):

“Scoring three times this season with Reims, who will rise, Romain Amalfitano will have caught the eye of recruiters from Newcastle, who will recruit for next season. According to our information, a three year contract has been proposed to the young attacking midfielder (22 years old). He arrived in Champagne in 2010 from Evian Thonon Gaillard F.C. and will be out of contract in June.” (more…)

Romain Amalfitano signs for Newcastle United?
Another French fancy signed by Toon?
As you might surmise from the question mark in the title, there has been no official announcement or anything like that, however, the Independent newspaper are claiming that Newcastle United have now signed a three year pre contract agreement with Reims midfielder, Romain Amalfitano.

Strangely though, it was just tacked on to the end of yet another story announcing that the club have filed their annual accounts at Companies House. This is what they wrote about the signing:

“The club yesterday completed the signing of the French winger Romain Amalfitano from Reims on a three-year deal.” (more…)
