One of the topics that he spent some time on was transfers and what sort of business Newcastle can expect to do in the summer.
Kennedy said: “Unless there’s a takeover before the summer, I really wouldn’t be banking on a lot of deals being done at Newcastle United. I think it’s going to be a real struggle.
“I mentioned it on here probably all the way back to the January window that I do not see them shelling out major money on anybody. I think any massive overhaul is going to be difficult.
“I think even your saleable assets this summer become uncertain because money isn’t washing around like it was last season or the season before or further back.
“Some clubs that may have quite willingly shelled out £35m for Miguel Almiron or Allan Saint-Maximin, or £25m for Martin Dubravka if you get relegated – I just don’t know if it’ll be there. You might find that moving players on might be quite difficult.”
Do you expect Newcastle to be active in the transfer market?
No, we will do nothing
Yes, I am sure we will make a few signings
TIF Thoughts on Newcastle’s summer transfer business…
Newcastle seem to be preparing for next season already by offering Dwight Gayle a new contract, even though he has only started two league games this season.
Judging by what Kennedy said, the Toon might even find it a struggle to sell the likes of Miguel Almiron and Allan Saint-Maximin if they go down.
This could work in their favour if they stay up because they are two of the Toon’s top goalscorers this season.
However, even if Newcastle do stay up, it looks like it could be a quiet summer on Tyneside, which could disappoint Toon fans.
