Onyewu going to Newcastle

France will not be the next home for US defender Oguchi Onyewu as some had reported. Instead, he will find his way to England's shores as Newcastle United have finished a loan deal with his current club Standard Liege. The deal will last till the end of the season.

The addition of Onyewu to Newcastle is going to give them some much needed support in their defense and, perhaps even more important, a wonderful target in dead ball situations.

Congrats to Newcastle for landing this talent. It would be great if he could see some action this Saturday when they take on McBride, Bocanegra and Dempsey at Fulham.
