NUFC Transfer Bits and Pieces

NUFC Transfer Bits and Pieces

As the window closes, we avoided the tedium of having to be glued to Sky Sports News for snippets of info regarding signings, which is a major achievement in itself.

Instead, we did our business earlier in bringing in Mathieu Debuchy, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa,Yoan Gouffran,Massadio Haidara and Moussa Sussoko whilst reluctantly allowing Demba Ba leave on that infamous transfer clause. *Thanks 'Arry.

However, some loose ends were tied up today with another signing for the development squad in the shape of Kevin Mbabu, who is a defensive midfielder and the Xisco saga finally ended earlier with his contract being paid up early instead of him dragging his stay here until July.

Overall, a more than satisfactory transfer window with some gloss took off with the lack of a quality striker coming in but we know the areas in which we will be busy for the Summer with at least two strikers needed now.
