Espanyol accept Newcastle bid for Finnan

Espanyol accept Newcastle bid for Finnan

According to news coming out of Spain, Hull target Steve Finnan is set to become Joe Kinnear's first signing after his club Espanyol accepted a bid of £1.3 million from Newcastle United.

Reports in the British press suggested that the former Liverpool man was headed for the KC Stadium, but Espanyol did not agree to the terms offered by The Tigers, and accepted an improved bid from The Magpies.

Joe Kinnear has been scouting the league looking for an experienced right-back to step-in in place of the injured Habib Beye, and Steve Finnan seems to fit the bill perfectly.

Espanyol's decision came after being dissatisfied with Hull`s proposal to pay the transfer fee in installments, over three years.

There were rumours circulating around that Finnan had failed a medical at the KC Stadium, but that has been deemed to be an inaccurate assessment of the situation by the Spanish club.
