If it's £12.5m that's ok business, we'll be happy enough, though i think a real win for us would have been £14m+. They are taking a risk at that money as I'm not sure he's up to regular starts at PL level, that's not sour grapes to any Newcs readers, I think you've got a potentially cracking player, I think he will be better than Redmond, the plus for us is I believe Josh will too. I hope he does well. I'm happy though, that money is more valuable to us than Jacob given we have Josh and all the other capable players for his position. If we spend even two 3rd of that to further strengthen I reckon we'll be ready for a tilt at the league. But who bloody knows, it could be a monumental clusterf#ck of a season just as easily! Bah!
