Marlon Harewood Newcastle Bound
Sky Sports have Marlon Harewood's agent quoted confirming that the big man is now over his injury and should be on his way to Newcastle United on loan.
The Magpies are looking to Harewood to cover the injury of Shola Ameobi.
The agent told SkySports.com that things are close to being agreed and he hopes the move will happen before the week is out.
'Talks are ongoing between both clubs and I think they are keen to get it resolved. Marlon is back to fitness now and he is ready and raring to go. Marlon is very keen on going to Newcastle and playing regular first-team football again.'
Really hope it works out for him, I think I'm not alone in being surprised no one bought him this summer and although he was never really the sort of player we needed, his attitude appears to have always been right and I did used to enjoy his super sub appearances, if not for the football at least for the enthusiasm!
