Newcastle United – SALE NOW ON!

Hopefully nothing is at 70% off

Is it really time to hold our breath? Could the end really be nigh?

Sky Sports News is reporting that Wolfsburg have agreed a £9m fee with us for Obafemi Martins. Though it’s yet unconfirmed by Newcastle, Oba was left out of the squad for the friendly against Leeds, which has given credence to the claims.

Speculation is also mounting about an imminent agreement with Spurs to ship Bassong off to White Hart Lane. Habib Beye threw a paddy after being taken off in the game against Leeds and given his recent comments, he could also be on the way out. Guiterrez, Coloccini and Xisco are all being monitored by clubs in Italy and Spain and Krul is apparently being monitored by Arsenal.

So if the Martins sale becomes fact then it stands to reason the other speculation could materialise into reality. Of course, more pertinently or at least as pertinently, is the implication that if Martins is allowed to leave then the ’embargo’ placed on transfers has been lifted. Which means either new owners are now calling the shots and making their first business decisions. Or Mike Ashley is getting his fire-sale underway and it’s anyone’s guess what that could mean for us.

I guess we might find out more over the next couple of days but it genuinely looks like something is happening. SSN are generally fairly reliable when it comes to printing what they view as facts. We can lament the NUFC careers of those that leave us as and when but for now this could mean much bigger things for the club than saying goodbye to one or two of our players. This could be a fresh start we’ve been looking for or something entirely different and not entirely palatable.

Hold your breath I say…….
