Some of these players I personally had not heard of before we were linked to them; and that comes from a lack of knowledge about Ligue 1, but my initial reaction when we signed Haidara was 'Who?' It is good that we are bringing in players and players still want to join Newcastle. I'd just personally like to see more money invested into the English leagues and bringing in young players that way and/or older players already in the Prem that know what they're doing and won't have to adjust to the pace.
Don't buy into the British transfer policy we stocked up on Carroll, Henderson,Downing & Allen & look at all the good it's done us lol
