SAM Allardyce has hailed the “crucial” deadline day signings of Habib Beye and Abdoulaye Faye and says that both players have a chance of making their Newcastle United debut at Pride Park on Monday.
Faye and Beye both has signed the contract last minutes before the end of Summer window transfer on August 31. Both players are being tracked by Allardyce for some time, but the deadline is just the right time for them to finally get the chance in three-years deal at Fortress St. James’ Park.
To have both Sengalese International players was a bonus for Newcastle United, as they are will often played together and they know each other well from their International experience. This year we are succeeded in developing the Great Newcastle Wall, as we have towering players to guard the defence.
Sam Allardyce is also very happy with his signings. “Abdoulaye Faye was training on his own at Bolton while the transfer dragged on, but he has huge experience in the Premier League,” said the 52-year-old gaffer.
“They will both be in the squad and have a chance of being involved because we still have long-term injuries which is testing the squad to the full.” Sam added more, “That's why it was crucial to add Habib and Abdoulaye when we did.”
Other players that have a slight problems for the upcoming Premiership match are Jose Enrique and Mark Viduka. Both have their respective hamstring injuries.
Jose has a slight hamstring problem while Mark Viduka is still a little way off because he hasn”t trained with the rest of the lads yet. Sam will have to wait until Monday morning before deciding if he will play them both.
