Newcastle Considering Part Exchange Deal For Charlie Austin

Tuesday, July 28th, 2015 · 20 Comments

There were reports last night that Newcastle would be bidding for QPR striker Charlie Austin this week to try to get the 26 year-old on Tyneside, and there’s new news tonight in the Mail that Newcastle may consider trying to get Austin in a part exchange deal.

The Newcastle player mentioned is Haris Vuckic, the Slovenian International who turns 23 next month, has one year left on his contract and has never really fulfilled the enormous promise he had when Newcastle signed him in January 2009 from Domzale as a 16 year-old.

Newcastle made some efforts in the January transfer window to sign AC Milan midfielder M’Baye Niang, but we were not successful in signing the 20 year-old,  who is a French U21 International and well regarded by Chief Scout Graham Carr.

Lee Charnley Working Very Hard On New Signings

Tuesday, July 28th, 2015 · 24 Comments

One of the things that Lee Charnley is good at and effectively made his name at Newcastle for – is signing players for Newcastle, and he has been the man who has gone in and negotiated deals on behalf of Newcastle, and that was a long time before he was appointed the Managing Director about 15 months ago.

We still cannot believe  we have got Gini Wijnaldum and Aleksandar Mitrovic through the door this summer, and we should be able to sign Chancel Mbemba by the end of this week – so that’s £35.5M spent so far.

That’s a good start but we still need maybe three more players signed this summer.

Newcastle To Bid For Long-Term Serbian International Target

Tuesday, July 28th, 2015 · 22 Comments

Newcastle United were interested in signing Benfica and Serbian International attacking midfielder Filip Duricic eighteen months ago, and there were reports at that time that we had a €10M (£7M) offer for him rejected by the Portuguese club.

It seems that once Graham Carr has done his thorough scouting of a player, he doesn’t forget players – so it may not be too much of a surprise that we are reported to be interested in signing the 23 year-old, who has played 22 times for Serbia with 4 goals.

But he did train yesterday with the lads at Benton.
