The Director of Football, Joe Kinnear, who on his appointment accepted the club needed to buy attacking players, has not done so. Nor has he sold anyone for a significant fee. Yet.
His major act in the transfer window was to pull the Douglas deal which led to the resignation of Managing Director, Derek Llambias, who has not been replaced.
The club accounts state that Mike Ashley has an intention to take back £18m from United up to June 2013. This would add to the £11m taken out in the previous accounting period. Repayments of the loan to Ashley are structured around the new TV deal.
We now want you to tell us what you think about this transfer window and what this says about the direction of Newcastle United under Mike Ashley’s ownership.
