Unexpected arrival 

Having confirmed the patently obvious need to recruit a goalscorer and a left back before the transfer window closes, Alan Pardew is set to make a further dip into the transfer market - to sign a goalkeeper.... 

Charlton Athletic 'keeper Rob Elliot is expected on Tyneside soon to complete a permanent transfer.

25 year-old Elliot -  linked with West Ham recently - is in the final year of his current contract and turned down a new deal at the League One club.

That prompted the recent arrival of Ben Hamer from Reading who took squad number 1. However, Elliot has played in all three of Charlton's league games so far this season.

Signing his first professional contract at The Valley in 2004, Elliot debuted in March 2005, while on loan to Notts County. A season and a half with Accrington Stanley then followed before he an Addicks debut in April 2008 - the first of three games he played before their boss Alan Pardew lost his job as Charlton manager. 

Charlton fan sites first linked Elliot with a move to SJP back in May of this year, claiming that the Kent-born former Republic of Ireland youth international was set to link up again with ex-Addicks goalkeeper coach Andy Woodman, now fulfilling that role at Gallowgate.

This looks to be another nail in the coffin for Steve Harper, while Swedish U21 international 'keeper Ole Soderberg obviously has no future on Tyneside. And presumably Fraser Forster's return to Celtic has ended up as a loan due to the inability of the SPL club (or anyone else) to meet our asking price for a permanent transfer.

I just said a few hours ago that if we spend ANYTHING on a new GK then it would be the most pointless signing ever, and here you go.

They mistook him for Robbie Elliot, and thought they might be able to get a third stint out of him at LB.

We've signed Thomas Myhre's doppelgänger.
