Rumour mill will be going mad for us from now on I guess.

Anyone know much about this lad??


Juan Albin insists he will not decide on his future until the end of the season, amid speculation he has agreed a deal with Newcastle.

The 23-year-old Uruguayan forward has been with Getafe since 2006, after moving from Nacional.

Newcastle are understood to have been keeping tabs on Albin for a number of months, as they look to plan for life back in the Premier League.

Now Spanish sources claim that Newcastle have offered Albin a three-year deal to move to St James' Park on a Bosman transfer in the summer.


Getafe have offered Albin fresh terms in a bid to stop him leaving for free, but it now seems he is set to leave the Madrid-based outfit.

Interest

Speaking about Newcastle's potential interest, Albin insisted he was focused on trying to win a place in Uruguay's World Cup squad.

"This year is very important to me," he said.

"I attend to announce what my future is at the end of the season.

"Like any professional, I don't reject any offer - and Newcastle are an historical club that will return to the Premier League.

"But I will keep calm and study them."

His goal scoring record is not the best but we shall see. We don't have a good record of buying forwards from Spain though.

there is a YouTube of him on that link, he looks half decent for what that footage is worth like, is that the real and barca first teams he is playing against??

Either way it's good to know we are trying to get in early on players.

If it's true we have enquired anyway...

They reckon he's a second striker, so he must be more of a provider than a clinical goal scorer.

Plus he plays for Getafe, and they are quite a handy team.

NEWCASTLE United boss Chris Hughton has played down reports that the club has made an "offer" for Getafe forward Juan Albin, who is out of contract in the summer.
"There is nothing in that one – I can categorically tell you that," said Hughton. "I'm not aware of any move like that."

Albin had been quoted in Spain as saying: "I intend to announce what my future is at the end of the season.

my god his vital statistics are worse than my fat aunty's! He's fucking shite!

Agents will start sniffing around us now and we'll be linked with loads of players - bound to be as we are still one of the biggest clubs in the Prem. I mean, I couldn't give a fuck what anyone says, if a player had a choice between us and the likes of Wigan or Stoke they would rather come here.

If Hughton had the say-so over his signings then my guess is we will get players we never suspected of coming - the signing of Routledge come out of nowhere with little media speculation. That is the way signings should be.

exactly! (I'm on a roll now, 3rd glass of Rioja!) Don't remember KK's signings taking weeks of paper talk.

How fuckin cool would it be if Hughton was the new Clough and bought loads of great players on the cheap and we finished top 6!

Bloody drink...

stats are shite
