    Official: Obafemi Martins to Newcastle

    Martins joins Newcastle – official
    Thursday 24 August, 2006
    Nigerian ace Obafemi Martins has completed his £10.1m move from Internazionale to Newcastle United.

    The 21-year-old has put pen to paper on a five-year contract after passing a medical earlier today.

    It is also official In newcastle website.

    NEWCASTLE new boy Obafemi Martins was afforded a rousing reception by the United faithful on Thursday night when he was introduced to the crowd ahead of the UEFA Cup qualifying game with FK Ventspils.

    The striker was at St. James' Park to finalise his move from Inter Milan on Thursday afternoon, and he was introduced to the crowd minutes before the game got underway.

    Martins walked out to the centre circle sporting a black and white scarf, and earned huge cheers from the stands when he twirled the scarf around his head to create a one-man repeat of the scenes from Alan Shearer's Testimonial game!

    The Nigerian international will train for the first time with his new team-mates on Friday, and will then be back at St. James' Park to be unveiled to the media.


    We will miss you Oba!

    OK, so it's official...... I still hoped that Martins won't leave, hoped until this moment... I will definitely miss him. Maybe he wasn't some hell of a player, but he was our on;y extra fast player. And he had those unique goal celebrations.

    GOOD LUCK MR. OBA OBA!!!

    I think this is a good move for both teams. Martins has talent and should help Newcastle, and now Inter doesn't have to worry about having too many forwards (and they kept Adriano, which is probably best for them).

    Adriano, Ibrahi



    It's a shame for him, now we will definitely have less options in attack since we lost probably the fastest striker in the world.
    Seeing Oba's face while holding the Newcastle scarf, doesn't lead me to a conclusion that he is too happy with leaving Inter.
    I know i will miss him, but I wish him all luck of the world and I hope that in his heart he will always be an interista
    Ma va bene, vinceremo insieme!!!

    Adriano - #10



    Sucks it wasn't Recoba instead, or even Cruz. But I guess it was best for him to leave cause things have gotten pretty tight for a starting job. Still though, he brought an fantastic element to our side, especially coming off the bench against tired defenses. He will be missed.
