Italian youngster Giuseppe Rossi has moved to Newcastle United on loan until the January transfer window.

With Shearer retiring, Michael Owen injured, Martins injured, and Ameobi crap, the Magpies were in the market for a striker, and it appears they have no money to do anything.

In a bizarre move, considering we’re a little bit short on attacking players (even with Smith coming back) Rossi will make the move to the North East until January 1st.

Even Sir Alex thinks it was a bit silly:

‘It was a big decision for us especially as we don’t have the choice of strikers.’

However we’re not doing this to help them, more to help the player gain valuable Premiership experience. Just as long as he doesn’t do too well for the Barcodes, it’ll be a good move!
