Loan Deal For Ebondo And Newcastle Make Saviola Swoop


There seems to be a lot going on right now at Newcastle in the transfer market with owner Mike Ashley having joined Joe Kinnear and Derek Llambias on Tyneside, to plot the vital last 6 days of the transfer window.

Ebondo and Saviola – two loan deals?

It seems like Newcastle will do a 6 month loan deal for 24 year old Albin Ebondo, and that gives the club some leeway in seeing just how good the player is, before making the deal permanent potentially in the summer.

So that seems a wise and fairly safe move by Newcastle. and it gives the player some incentive to play well at the club, just as Peter Loevenkrands is also wanting to do well, so he can secure a permanent deal.

Good psychology here.

And there is breaking news that the local deal of Javier Saviola from Real Madrid to Portsmouth may not be as certain as it first appeared.

There are reports that Newcastle and Everton are still trying to do a deal for the player.

Presumably we would have thought it would have been advantageous to Javier to be able to join fellow Argentine internationals Coloccini and Gutierrez on Tyneside, but perhaps that’s just wishful thinking.

The other potential new news is that Joe Kinnear may be willing to let Charles N’Zogbia leave the club for Aston Villa for around £6M.

But we have to be very careful that we have at least four to five net new players into the club by next Monday at 5:00 pm, if we are to allow some to leave.

If Charles N’Zogbia does leave, we would assume that will be next Monday afternoon, once we know for sure we have all our players into the club.

And if time runs out on the deal for Charles, so be it – and then he’ll then have to stop all his complaining and whining and start playing football again – which is what he gets paid for.

And we wonder if  he really thinks he’ll get a regular place at Villa?

But we’ll certainly get rid of this lad at the very latest in the summer, because he’s become a huge pain in the rear end for most Newcastle fans.

Comments welcome.

    Saviloa would be a legend in a place like Newcastle. We could be a match made in heaven.

    But I can’t see it happening.

    Saviola for Owen would seem sensible.
    Selling players then not buying a replacement i.e Milner-not sensible.
    Loan deals before buying-a risk either way, if the player turns out to be good someone else can come in for him.

    If Given goes too then I imagine that most of or all of the fee will also go on the squad.

    Apparently a magazine in Italy says we have agreed a fee for Marco Donadel from Fiorentina!

    Were getting busy….ha 🙂

    @Brettoon – sh1tty spurs have spent nearly £20m resigning players they sold for £10m in total. How do you see that as good business? Get a grip mate!

    Simply we need in addition to our current squad a LB, RB, 2 CM, RM.

    If we sell Zog, Enrique and/or Given, then we need another LB, and RM.

    If we have the luxury of spending power then a ST and CB would be advantageous, but we’d be able to cope!

    The Magpie – I am sure the loan deals will be with “Options to buy” in other words the power and decision will be Newcastles at the end of the loan term. The option will include the pre-agreed purchase cost should things work out well – this is a must as clubs only allow players to go on loan who arent in their long term plans – that means their value at the loan point is low.

    Newcastle will only take up the option if the player does well – at which point as you point out the value may have gone up – its a win win for Newcastle.

    i must admit that im happy,we arent paying money hungry muppets too much money anymore(Kluivert,Luque,Boumsong to name but a few) instead taking players on loan is a great deal for both parties,if the player doesnt settle ,then he can go back after the six months or the other scenario would be (i.e – Lovendkrands, the player is going to play their heart out,to earn a prmanent contract

    Win Win situation for Newcastle Utd for a change

    The Magpie – usually the loan deals give the club loaning the player first option to buy them for a fee agreed at the time of the loan.

    Apparently we’ve agreed a £3.5m fee for Ebondo, subject to him doing well at the Toon

    brettoon,

    why do they have to be permanent deals? thats partly the mess we’re in cos we have poor players tied to lengthy expensive contracts!

    surely a “trial period” i.e. short term loans and contracts are just what we need. although if we can get a proven player permanently that would be different.

    It was allready spent on Coloccini-the net spent on transfers since Ashley took over is 10m. Nothing was spent in new money in the last transfer window and im very doubtful we will spend anything above the Given sale money this time round.

    Do any of you think that if Miguel Veloso is available for £12m, then that seems slightly cheap for aplyer who was rated around £20m not long ago? I think he’s a class act, and would be an investment!

    Haha! i cant beleive people are annoyed now that where signing someone on loan rather then permanent. I wish we had done it in the past with some of our other flops. If this fella turns out to be useless it will be a great move, if he turns out ace we will have first option so no problems.

    Ye im sure we have a 1st option but if a bigger champions lge club become interested the player is likely to do exactly as he pleases like they all do.
    Nevertheless beggars cant be choosy-the French lge has some gems and some right useless- like Kaboul.

    It’s all fair and good signing players on loan, but if we do not have these players in the summer and others go, does that just leave us in the same position that we are now.

    It will all start over again and I for one cant take a third window like that last two

    I agree with some statements about Zog, but has he not played LB for us which is not his position and who will be the fall guy for the position if we get injuries, just a thought

    Veloso is a good player but said he would only join a Champs Lge club.
    I will put forward a very good right winger-Sergio Garcia of Real Betis but a LB cant think of one.

    BRETTOON…….!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    FFS MAN…..HOW MUCH OF THE MILNER MONEY WAS SPENT????????????

    WE BOUGHT XISCO WITH HALF OF THE MONEY WE BROUGHT IN FOR MILNER!!!!!!

    WE ALSO PAID A FEE TO VALENCIA TO SIGN NACHO ON LOAN FOR THE SEASON!!!

    THATS POTENTIALLY AROUND 6.5 – 7 MILLION OF THE 10 MILLION WE RECIEVED UPFRONT FOR MILNER. THE REST IS 2 MILLION IN INSTALLMENTS!!!!!

    THATS AROUND 75% OF THE MONEY WE RECIEVED UPFRONT (NOT INCLUDING THE ADD ONS)

    It’s not a personal rant aimed at you…Its just my pet hate of a statment “We didnt spend the milner money”….We wasted it on a player who will never play more than 10 games for us!!! Why????

    We have to pay an installment of around 2 million to deportivo for xisco when he plays 10 games!

    Something else which has f@cked me right off is finding out that we are paying enrique around 40k per week! A combined fee off around 12 million for xisco & enrique and ridiculous wages for two players who are no where near good enough! players like this will take us down…

    Bolton are said to be in talks with Miguel Veloso, who’s said to be valued at 12 million… surely we should be going after him if Bolton are in with a chance.
