Newcastle Told To Increase £2M Offer For Chimbonda

Pascal Chimbonda£2M bid turned down by Spurs

Newcastle have been told to increase their offer for the French International, if they want the deal to be completed.

Ever since Juande Ramos arrived at Tottenham last year, it seems like Pacal’s days at the club were numbered, although he still put in some good performances for the side.

Even in January, there was news that Chimbonda was on the verge of a move to St James’ Park, but it failed to materialize before the transfer window closed.

The 29-year-old right-back, who stands at 5’11” tall, can also play at left back, and would need to compete with Habib Beye if he does move to the Newcastle club.

But he may also be able to tie down a spot at left-back if Newcastle fail to secure a top left back, like Nicky Shorey, in the summer.

Currently 22 year old Spaniard Jose Enrique held down the position once Kevin arrived back at the club, and looks a promising prospect.

But at the very least Chimbonda will add some competition to the full back spots, which has to be a good thing.

We don’t think it will take too much more to secure Chimbonda, but Newcastle cannot let things idle, if we are to bring new players in during the summer.

Aston Villa are also said to be interested in acquiring the player, but Newcastle seem to be in the driving seat, with Chimbonda only too willing to come to Tyneside to join the new Kevin Keegan revolution.

Comments welcome.

    i seem to remember back in january he turned around and said, ” if things dont work out here (spurs) i will go to newcastle, Keegan wants me and they will pay me more money”

    also, an elephant never forgets and I remember him slapping nicky butt!

    He’s not good enough to lace Beye’s boots. Why do the papers believe that we will believe this rubbish? Why buy another Right Back when we need at least 4 Midfielders, 1 Target Man, 1 Centreback and 1 Left Back before we even look at any other position.

    Hopefully tabloid speculation am sure KK is setting his sights higher than him.
    Why disrupt the dressing room which has just recently recovered from the fat mans era.

    Don;t shoot him in the hands cos his gloves will probably be bullet proof.
    Anyone recall him refusing to play at Wigan cos he wanted to go to Spurs.
    Need anyone really say any more on the matter.

    NO!!……….NO!!……… Just NO!

    I wouldnt pay 1m for him let alone 2m +. He’s just a useless whinger.
    Did these useless hacks (plus chimbondas agent) that are banding this story around not see his terrible comedy defending last season? Plus his general whinging attitude. Keep him away from SJP!!!

    sas; arent we already?

    I actually sent an email to the sun on monday asking if there journos make things up or get bad info. I said if they were making it up surely they should be sacked. I have yet to recieve a reply.

    I think this story is rubbish. Are we to believe that chimbonda wants to leave spurs cos he cant get a game and join newcastle to sit on our bench instead. He turns out in gloves down there, whats he gonna wear up here. Ear muffs and a feckin balaclava?

    He’s a decent player who was excellent for Wigan but could be seriously bad news.

    I wouldn’t risk more than £2m. Look elsewhere KK.

    Anyone else like the look of the Turkish left back? Think he’s called Hakan?

    Does anybody know which council flat NewcastleUnited-mad.co.uk is run from?

    If so, can you let broon ale know, so he can send someone round with a shovel.

    I hate than site. It’s like rehashed stories (GOSSIP) a few days late, but with a hint of anger to it.

    Why are we trying to sign up so many defenders when we don’t have a World Class striker at the club? We are at our best when we’re scoring goals and I can’t see that happening with an ex-England player who can’t make a goal for himself and little else up front. Score more than they do, that’s how you win, not by stocking the defense up with a bunch of unrated, untested players.

    So all of the good players we sign will be Keegan’s signings and all of the poor ones will be down to Wise?

    You really couldn’t make this up.
