Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern are hoping that their side is going to sign some really top players in this summer window.
Indeed, with the Magpies back in the Premier League the men from Tyneside will be eager to bring in players that help them stay exactly where they are in the top flight.
Rafa Benitez, then, is the man who needs to oversee just that, then, but whilst we wait to see who arrives it appears as though the wait for Florian Lejeune is going to continue a little bit longer.
Indeed, according to Chronicle Live, all hopes of the deal being completed this week are now as good as over and it will not be until after the weekend when things get sorted.
Certainly, that is not a cause for panic but it is frustrating with the club naturally wanting to get players in before the pre-season schedule gets underway.
It remains to be seen, then, as to how long Magpies fans have to wait now.
