BUSY WEEKS FOR TOON
Newcastle United is going through some very busy few weeks not only inside the club but also outside of it as the Premier League club has had a change in their staff with Lee Charnley being promoted from being the club secretary of the club to having a step up as he now is the managing director.
Charnley voiced his emotions after the news was made public by the france equateur cote website.
“It is a real honor to be appointed as managing director. I have been with the Club for almost 15 years and have seen a great many changes in my time here. The Club has never been in such a stable and healthy financial position, which gives us the best possible platform from which to grow’’.
“I am confident that with our dedicated, hardworking and loyal employees, together with Alan Pardew and his backroom staff, we will progress the Club, both on and off the field over the coming years’’. Charnley said via the official website of the club.
Newcastle United also have their work cut out for them outside of the pitch as they are racing to sign Benjamin Stambouli from Montpellier but will have to act fast in order to avoid Everton from snatching the player first as they are also interested in signing the 23 years old defender.
The side of Alan Pardew are favorites on signing Manchester City’s Micah Richards in the summer. Richards is frustrated from his lack of playing time and this has attracted a number of clubs around the club including Ac.Milan, Liverpool, Manchester United and Newcastle United.
The owner of Newcastle United, Mike Ashley is willing to match the valuation of €8 million that Manchester City has placed on the English defender. Richards will also be offered a €72,000 a week deal in order to secure his services and bring him into the club during the summer transfer window.
