Both Dyer and Solano To Leave Newcastle

Kieron DYER is ready to move to West Ham United again, after Newcastle United brokered a £7M compromise agreement with the London club, as we reported yesterday.

It is almost two weeks ago that Dyer passed a medical at Upton Park after the two clubs agreed a fee in the region of £6M.

However, after a disagreement between the clubs, in which West Ham are understood to have been bragging about getting Dyer on the cheap, Newcastle owner Mike Ashley pulled the plug (good for him).


Kieron Dyer and Nobby Solano – both expected to leave for London

After increasing the asking price to £8M in light of that, renewed talks were concluded yesterday and Newcastle are now set to get £1M more than originally agreed. Good business by Newcastle.

The transfer is expected to be completed before the weekend and Newcastle manager Sam Allardyce will spend £2M of the cash on Bolton midfielder Abdoulaye Faye. But it now looks like Dyer will not be followed to East London by Nolberto Solano, who is thought to be interesting Portsmouth. Solano, like Dyer, has signaled his intention to move south, nearer to London, where his family now reside.

The Peruvian had initially been looked at by Alan Curbishley, but he has not followed up and that has left Harry Redknapp free to move in. Harry is an admirer of Solano but whether Portsmouth takes him as close to London as he needs to be is debatable. It’s a 3 hour ride in the train from Newcastle so there is a chance, although slim, that Solano may elect to stay at Newcastle.

We’re not sure Portsmouth, although a very good club, is what Nobby is looking for. There’s still time for another London club to move in and if we were betting men we’d expect Nobby to leave Newcastle before August 31st. We would expect to get at least £1M for 32 year-old Nobby, who has one year left on his contract. While that may not seem much, it’s still half of Abdoulaye Faye’s fee, so it would be good business again for Newcastle.

For the record Solano has appeared 312 times for Newcastle scoring 48 goals and Dyer has appeared 249 times for the club scoring 29 goals.

Comments very welcome.

    I can’t believe you believe that we were bragging about signing a player on the cheap. At £6million hardly cheap for a regular crock. Basically your new management screwed up with their own valuation and pulled a fast one on West Ham.

    Alan Curbishley said in all his years as a football manager “This has never happened to me before” . Just shows you are being ran by novices.

    I am really upset about Nobby leaving, but as a father of two children myself I can’t really argue with his logic.

    Mind you, if he trains in the morning what is to stop him catching a plane to London two or three times a week – he could be back in Newcastle at 21:30 each night and not even miss training.

    If he leaves, I will retain the affection that I have for him. Without doubt Dalglish’s best buy and obviously Souness’s as well.

    F*&^(k off “Just” what kind of post was that like? I think you will find BOTH sides made a mess of the business side with you guys letting something slip about signing Dyer then us saying screw you West Ham we want more money – I think you will find that we will get the extra cash we have said we want so how are we run by novices? Your chairman will carry all the egg on his face given recent comments about NUFC being embarrassed (Later unsuccessfully retracted) and also that this particular transfer “Shows we wont pay what other teams demand” when clearly that is exactly what you are doing MUG.

    Guy that is the most valid point that I have been trying to get accross to fellow mags that I speak to. You (Solano) can’t expect us to believe that for 9 months (Approx given the length of his contract) you can’t simply hop on a plane to see the children WHENEVER you want. These players are absolutely loaded with cash – It’s not like he has to wait for an Easyjet flight like us common folk – quite simply money talks and Solano would find it alot easier to do this compared to people who work normal hours. Lets not forget this is the guy that wanted, until recently, to play for his national team in Peru (Yes that is right the place on the other side of the world) but let me guess he’d take his kids out there to watch him play…………….NOT. Terrible lame “easy get-out” excuse from a player like the rest of us I had thought was a geordie forever but simply put he isn’t.

    interesting post by JUST. i agree that six million is a good deal on dyer. having said that, he is fit now and we have put up with him and fixed his various mystery problems for years and years. the only obvious flaw in your comment would be that you have slagged off the newcastle management. if you look into the history of the deal you will know that we pulled the plug cos it was YOUR board that were gobbing off about how they had pulled off a great piece of buisiness by getting dyer underpriced and on the cheap. we heard about it and therefore revalued him to what YOUR club had been bragging was the real value of him. now YOUR club have came back in with a 7 million up front deal for the bloke instead of 5 mil up front and a further 1 on apperances…………so tell me JUST……….. who’s board are the daft ones, in fact, let me give you a clue………its not newcastle.

    Hatem Trabelsi is available on a free? (apparently want to stay in england.

    Sell car get Hatem Trabelsi (as cover) and another RB and that would cover that position.

    Another free player – you think Sam could get a few good seasons out of Juan Sebastián Verón ?

    If anyone can Sam can…

    What you’s think?

    Got to admit Dyer has got a brilliant agent.

    Saw Sam was coming in and knew Dyer wouldn’t cut it with him so found another club to pay him 80k a week to keep their treament room warm (wasn’t he in there in the summer?)

    If Dyer was motivated by football he had the chance and the talent to be a real hero in Newcastle, but, if you believe the stories, the bling was the thing.

    It will be interesting when we play the Hammers with Dyer, Bowyer, Parker and Bellamy all playing (assuming Bellamy and Dyer are fit and Parker and Bowyer aren’t banned).

    To reiterate Alan Curbishley ” “This has never happened to me before” in his time as football manager and thats been a long time. This clearly proves that the Newcastle board made a mistake and it had nothing to do with spouting off about the fact we may of bought him cheap. which by the way isnt the case anyway!!!

    Basically your new management thought they had underpriced and changed their minds at the last minute….Thats what really happened.

    Its no big deal anyway I think we’ll get 10 games a season out of him which may or may not help us….The only real winner in this is Dyer, because you’ve been paying his wages for 7 years and thats not been cheap.

    @ Just 8=>

    my little ‘nob’ gag aside (see next to your name) are WHU not under investigation AGAIN with regard to underhand dealings and illegal approaches to players [not including Tevez/Dyer]. This would suggest to me that ‘normal business practice’ does not work for West ham and therefore shady shannanigans are the tipple of the day! Could just be me but the fact that you have taken time to post your comments on our NUFCblog site tells me that you are the one that is smarting about this whole affair. Bottom line is, you really are a championship side (ahem) and once Sheffield sting you for the cash you have spent on our rejects you ya board and ya players can send us a post card whilst on the same holiday as Leeds. I hear its nice at the Costa Conference.

    I for one will not lose any sleep over Dyers departure or for the extra money you lot gave us for him. Ding dong the witch has gone.

    JUST my opinion though! 😛

    I really cannot believe how clever Sam is, another waste of space leaves the club and for £7 million, God must be a Geordie.
    How many more to leave ? two possibly three in my view. Do you think the training is hard?

    Dingo ….erm ….what makes me laugh with people like you is that you say West Ham are a championship side….etc

    May I remind you that in the last 50 years what have you actually won?

    West Ham have won the European Cup Winners Cup and 3 FA Cups.

    So for you to say we are a championship side, is as comical as Newcastle believing that they should win the league every year.

    Get real…. pckir ouy (the clues in the letters)

    well i was not debating the amount of silver ware won by each club respectivly, just the fact that really this season you should be in the championship rather than the premiership. If you cant see that then I cant help you, obviously summink has got yer goat. Bad grapes mate?

    JUST – Is that the spound of a Hammer upset, here’s a bedtime song to cheer you up..

    “He’s only a poor little hammer,
    his clothes are all tattered & torn,
    he came for a fight,
    so we set him alight,
    and now he won’t come any more”

    If you’re too young to know about it ask your mockney father – if you know who he is.

    And The Toon isn’t? What a loser.

    When he was good, he was good, but sadly all too inconsistently recently

    Farewell sicknote, hope your new “ambitious club” does well
