Newcastle Will Wait Until The Summer for Edmilson

Newcastle manager Sam Allardyce has confirmed that he is content to wait until the end of the season to sign Barcelona defender/midfielder Edmilson.

The Premiership side had been expected to make a move for Edmilson in January, but concerns over his fitness have necessitated the wait until the end of the season.

Allardyce explained:

"I am afraid he is now not an option for us in January. He has not played at all this season and it would be too much of a risk to bring him here next month."

Edmilson, 31, will be available on a free transfer in the summer when his Barcelona contract expires and Newcastle are likely to face competition from a number of sides for his signature at that time.

It's not intrusion but an humble request to the community here.

I have recently started an articles website and would request you (I will appreciate if you can) to please spare some time and post articles about soccer at my site.
