Newcastle Bid For Bas Dost Nowhere Near Wolfsburg Valuation

Monday, June 29th, 2015 · 30 Comments

Wolfsburg Sporting Director Klaus Allofs at Bundesliga club Wolfsburg has given his opinion on the Newcastle offer for one of our top targets Bas Dost – and it looks like Newcastle are going about their business a sin the past by putting in very low bids – and sometimes the bid is so low that they start to lose credibility with the selling team.

That may have happened with our offer for Bas Dost, and Klaus Allofs has talked to SoccerNews and what he’s said doesn’t sound too good for Newcastle, and he compares the Newcastle offer to Liverpool’s offer for Roberto Firmino which was a massive £29M and successful:

Newcastle Face Tough Competition For International Center-Back

Monday, June 29th, 2015 · 202 Comments

Aymen Abdennour’s agent Abdelkader Jilani has again been shopping his client around, and the 25 year-old Monaco center-back who was impressive last season in guiding the club to 3rd place in the French League, has said more than once that he would only leave Monaco for a club that plays regularly in the Champions League.

That’s why clubs like Newcastle will not have much chance of signing him – even through we are said to have put a formal bid in for him last week, and West Ham supposedly have recently bid £13.5M for him.

Charlie’s Decision Could Well Depend On Mrs Austin

Monday, June 29th, 2015 · 185 Comments

It looks like Charlie Austin will not make a decision on which club he will join for another two weeks.

Charlie has just been married to his long-term partner Bianca Parker, and they are off to the Maldives for their honeymoon – so it’s first things first – and the clubs after him such as Newcastle United – will just have to wait for his decision.

Chelsea seem to have switched their attentions from Austin to another Newcastle target – Anderlecht’s 20 year-old Serbian International Aleksandar Mitrovic – and they have dropped in the betting for Charlie to 4th favorites at 5/1.

Ian Cathro Ready To Build Newcastle Into Top Team

Monday, June 29th, 2015 · 56 Comments

We got very close to 100% proof that Ian Cathro will indeed be part of Steve McClaren’s coaching staff that will be getting together this week to prepare for the players arriving back at Newcastle for the start of pre-season training.

And it seems like Steve had brought off a bit of a coup for the 28 year-old Scottish coach, who is extremely well though of and his interview in the Sun today has said that Newcastle indeed are a club that now wants to push itself once again after eight years of almost being asleep under Mike Ashley.

Newcastle Ponder Second Bid For Top Target

Monday, June 29th, 2015 · 166 Comments

If the news is to be believed then Newcastle have already bid €15M (£10.6M) for Marseilles French winger Florian Thauvin, who has been a long term target of Newcastle’s over the last three years, with Graham Carr really liking the player.

But there is news today in the Chronicle today that Newcastle will need to go higher than £10.6M to get their man by another £3.4M.

The news is that Marseilles want around £14M before they will sell.

Newcastle Star Likely To Leave This Summer

Monday, June 29th, 2015 · 18 Comments

The players return on Wednesday for pre-season training,  and we expect Steve McCall to be a busy man for the next few weeks, as he gets to grip with the training at Newcastle and has a look at each of the players Newcastle currently have and decide which of them can leave the club.

But the Chronicle is reporting today that Steve will be making a quick decision on Cheick Tiote
