Everton Move In For Newcastle’s Top Target

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015 · 33 Comments

The longer you spend in negotiations when the word is out you are after a top player, the more likely it is that good clubs will move in and try to do the deal with the player themselves.

That’s what seems to have happened at Newcastle, who have presumably been negotiating with PSV for the transfer of midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum since the weekend, with no apparent success or progress.

Dutchman Trying To Emulate Sebastien Bassong

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015 · 43 Comments

Newcastle are giving a one week trial to 17 year-old Dutchman Dani Koks on trial, so he will have a chanced to impress the new head coach Stave McClaren, who will be off with the first team to America this weekend.

We remember seven years ago when 21 year-old Sebastien Bassong came in for a week-long trial from Metz when Kevin Keegan was at the club,  and he was signed on and not only that but he was easily Newcastle’s best player in that relegation season.

Sebastien was our Player of the Season with a massive 67.9% of the vote.

Newcastle Line Up Shock Move For Defensive Midfielder

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015 · 23 Comments

Newcastle United are interested in signing midfielder Ergys Kace, who plays for Greek club PAOK (Panthessalonikeios Athlitikos Omilos Constantinoupoliton) and he’s played 12 times for Albania.

Kace is very short – standing only 5ft 7ins tall*** – that’s a little taller than Vurnon Anita – so that may be a problem, and he plays as a defensive midfielder.

Newcastle have never been linked with this player before.

Dutchman Has Some Doubts About Joining Newcastle

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015 · 94 Comments

Newcastle are busy trying to negotiate a deal with PSV for Georginio Wijnaldum, but still have to agree a fee for a player who turned down French giants PSG last summer to stay in Holland.

And some in Holland are now wondering why he would now want to join Newcastle, who are not even playing in Europe and nowhere near the team that PSG have at the moment – and he turned them down last summer.
