One in, one out

Today saw confirmation of a deal which was reported as being done almost a month ago - less premature ejaculation, more tantric release - as Geremi has finally gone to Turkey, and thereby freed us from his whopping £58k per week salary which he's been merrily pocketing ever since Fat Sam thought he'd add something to the team.

Passing him in the revolving door at St James' Park is Coventry striker Leon Best, who joins us on a three and a half year deal for an undisclosed fee. With Victor Moses having gone to Wigan, Jermaine Beckford staying at Leeds and Homer injuring himself, Best's arrival finally allows Chris Hughton to bolster our pool of striking talent. His goals-to-games ratio doesn't exactly look amazing, but hopefully he can add some variety to our, at times, one-dimensional attacking play.

If he can get himself on the end of a few Wayne Routledge crosses to help us get promoted, you won't hear me complaining, that's for sure.
