The Eagle Has Landed

Looks like Newcastle has wrapped up their bid for striker, Obafemi Martins.

From the official site, Thursday:

Obafemi Martins was heading for Tyneside today as Newcastle United looked to complete his signing from Inter Milan. The Magpies have agreed a fee with the Serie A giants for the Nigerian striker - a man Toon boss Glenn Roeder revealed was his top transfer target this summer. Martins was due to undergo a medical on Thursday, and all being well, he will be at St. James' Park to watch the UEFA Cup game with FK Ventspils."We have got club officials out there today in Milan trying to tie the (Martins) deal up.

Happy dance!
