Sorry if already post it but here you go:
Newcastle United are reported to have accepted a £3.5 million bid from Town for striker Shola Ameobi. The 26-year-old has been widely tipped for a move away from St Jamesí Park during the summer.

we can afford 3.5 mil.....right???

Was probably the wage cut that killed it though.

3.5 mil would be close to the absolute ceiling for us, and that would need to be dollars - not pounds.

Yeah and the 7 mil is atransfer so salary will be much less than the 45 for "endorsments"/year. They just hid his huge salary with legalese. Don't kid yourself its 50 mill/year no matter the semantics.
