Geordies sign Georgian reads nufc.co.uk as Newcastle sign Blackburn defender Kisandfish...Khiszanish...Khizani...Zurab.
I jest, Khizanishvili signs on a three-month loan deal and I for one am ready to immediately overplay what is, at best, a solid signing.
Defensive reinforcements have been the order of the summer at SJP, or at least the only order that's been met as takeover turmoil continues to roll on.
Just in case anyone is keeping count the Takeover-ometer is registering 117 days without news.
The Georgian defender becomes the third 'new' signing on Tyneside this summer after Danny Simpson agreed a loan move from Manchester United and the inspired signing of Danish international Peter Lovenkrands (where did they find him hiding?).
Five clean sheets in a row before yesterdays defeat at Blackpool said a lot more about the poor attacks we have faced than the quality of our defending, in my humble opinion, and I'd be delighted to slot the Blackburn defender in the centre of our defence, right next to Tayls.
Take a rest Colo, you've 'earned' it.
