Wijnaldum Speaks About Newcastle Transfer

Monday, July 6th, 2015 · 104 Comments

The way transfers work is that the two clubs first agree a fee,  and when that fee is agreed the buying club can talk to the player and his representatives and they an discuss terms.

Once those are agreed to then the medical takes place – and if the player passes the medical he then signs the contract.

That’s that way it’s supposed to work,  but in these days of mass communications via  social media,  it doesn’t always happen that way but news today that Georginio Wijnaldum and his representatives want to play it exactly that way.

Newcastle Now In Danger Of Losing Top Youngster

Monday, July 6th, 2015 · 22 Comments

There’s no doubt that Newcastle have disappointed their fans so far in this summer’s transfer window, although there’s still time to bring in some good players.

But it’s clear that Newcastle have dropped down the ladder in terms of how big a club we are these days, and the drawing power we now have for top players.

We seem to struggle even against clubs like Swansea, Southampton and West Ham, who are smaller clubs than Newcastle, but are more ambitious and more willing to spend money in the transfer market, and subsequently have signed some very good players over the last year or so.

News today that Newcastle target Charlie Austin has now returned from his honeymoon, and the 26 year-old will be updated on the developments since he’s been away by his representatives, and also by his club.

So we could see some progress made on Newcastle’s  potential deal for Austin this week, with the latest news being that Leicester City had a £12M bid turned down for him, and it really seems that QPR will simply hold out and finally get the £15M they want for Charlie.
