Information On Loan Target Ignacio González


We reported on Friday, that Newcastle were trying to do a one year loan deal with Ignacio González, who is a Uruguayan international midfield playmaker.



Ignacio González – Blog reader Dani thinks he’ll be good at Newcastle

We have since had some information from a Uruguayan reader about the player, and we’d like to pass it on from somebody who knows the player well.

Here’s what one of our readers, Dani, told us about González:

He is a classic South America number 10.

A pure playmaker, with the added bonus he is a great header.

I would say the closest player to him is Michael Ballack – or should I say, in Europe.
I see Nacho as Ballack as you guys don’t seem to play with 10s.

He has spent his entire career at Danubio, and is a guaranteed starter on the National Team, although he will not be playing in next match due to his recent inactivity.

The Big Question – Can he adapt to be our Ballack?

YES – he has a good physique and won’t crumble in the middle. His passing versatility doesn’t get hindered being pushed a few meters back.

He also plays that position on the National Team, where he has 3 strikers to play off, nestled in between the defensive midfields.

If given confidence and with two Argentines already in the squad to reduce anxiety, it should be a good move.

Especially if on loan, free chance, with a good buy option!

That’s a good overview of the player, and to us he seems the exact type of talented creative midfielder that Kevin wants in before Monday night, even if it’s just a one year loan deal.

We hope we can get him – and at least three others.

And there’s only about 42 hours left of the transfer window. 🙁

Comments welcome.

    Didn’t KK say he didn’t want South Americans when he first came? We’ll end up being South America United at this rate, not that I mind.

    Went to Arsenal games yesterday and spoke to Mike Ashley before the game. He told me 3 players are more or less signed, 2 of them are awaiting medicals & 1 is waiting to be confirmed!!
    He also said there will be 1 more signing on Monday PLUS a signing that will shock the world late on Monday!!

    When i asked him if 1 of the players having a medical was Atouba he smiled and said we’ll see soon!

    Coloccini’s curls is a liar. As if Ashley would reveal everything we have planned to a random person.

    Still not convinced on this lad but we need to fill the squad with as many bodies as possible.

    This guy looks like he could be good for us, a creative midfielder we are crying out for, even if we only have him for a year! He can’t play left back, thats a different Ignacio Gonzalez, an argentinian.

    Colo’s Curls…Mate I saw Fat Ashley downing his pint yesterday at the game but how much have you had to drink! I guarantee you that the rest of the signings we will make this summer shall be loan signings…quite pathetic for a club of NUFC’s stature…And this WOW signing is not going to be a player…believe it will be some form of a commercial deal or along those lines…because lets be honest we simply cannot call a Malouda or a Saviola or any other player we have been linked with a WOW signing that will take the world by storm…its pathetic!

    In terms of the game we only had two players yesterday who turned up for us and that was the two Gs (Guthrie and Guti). For me personally I think Guthrie is an unbelievable signing. The best of the summer and trust me if he continues the way he is he could become England’s saviour in centre midfield!!! Absolutely brilliant!

    As for the other guys they had no commitment yesterday…they were in awe of Arsenal and naturally were dumbfounded.

    Shut up you deluded idiots, it won’t be Henry. It’s people like you who get Newcastle fans the reputation of being unrealistic and uneducated. I suppose you also think we’ll be challenging the top 4 this season.

    Was on holiday recently and Dennis Wise was there. He reckons “there is no way we will be signing Henry as he has Sciatica and would want astronomical wages, but that’s who Kevin would love to sign”. He also told me that we were making a signing that the next day which turned out to be Guttierez, although he couldn’t pronounce his name which was quit ammusing! We shall wait and see…….

    Some people on here live in cuckooo land…I spoke to Mike Ashley etc utter bullsh@t go and boil your head mate.

    I think a loan signing does reek of desperation I said weeks ago we will end up desperate towards the end of the window I am not saying he is a bad player because I don’t know him but surely we need players that are on the books properly.

    I also can’t believe people wanting Heskey he is a complete tool and Ashton is a sicknote.

    Gripe aside got my fingers and toes crossed that the signings are “quality”but I am not over confidant as we seem to be told a load of lies from the club.

    Mag1 – I agree with all your comments. We gave Arsenal too much respect, too much space, whereas they were in our face the whole time.

    As for the signings – its nice to dream when we only have 1 day to wait.

    Just back off you tube this lad looks a good player! hope we get him. Whether colo’s curls is talkin bull or not he’s trying to lift the doom & gloom! If henry is playing 2nite then we can put the rumour to bed but until then we still w8 & hope! these 2 players could transform our side, Gonzalez creative mid & Henry still one of the very best! i’d be happy with them. But more realisticly we’ll get Heskey! lol! but i’d still take that although Ashton would be my preferd choice & he’s much younger than both Henry & Heskey!
