Kinnear Wants 4 Players Through The Door Today


We had wondered last night if Joe Kinnear wanted to complete four incoming deals for Newcastle or that number of deals included Given and Zog leaving Newcastle.

charles-nzogbia-381

N’Zogbia – move to Wigan determines if Taylor comes the other way  🙁

But in a new interview in the Newcastle Journal this morning, it looks like Joe wants four players coming in today, including Ryan Taylor of Wigan Athletic.

Joe said last night:

“We’re looking to add four players before tomorrow,” “One of those is a striker.”

“And we have tried for one center-half, Sammi Hyppia, but Liverpool are not prepared to let him out.”

“I want to get somebody with experience because of the position we are in. “

“We have a very young back four and I just want somebody who is a good organizer.”

Kinnear was due to meet Mike Ashley after the game yesterday afternoon to finalize the finances available, and we assume that has been sorted out last night, with Joe and Dennis Wise presumably going all out to get their men today.

But of course Joe is always a little too optimistic and he admitted that some of the deals may not go through today:

“There could be a chance that the deals will break down but I don’t know.”

And as far as Ryan Taylor is concerned, he’s already on Tyneside, as a number of our readers had mentioned yesterday.

Joe talked about Ryan this morning:

“Ryan Taylor has been here for the last two days. He can play both full- back positions, wide positions and is a good player.”

“I’ll be disappointed if that falls through because we can’t agree a deal for Charlie.”

Whoops, so we were wrong in our earlier report when we said the Ryan Taylor deal was not dependent on Charles going the other way.

Well, Charles will be doubly disliked now, if he pulls out of the Wigan deal, so  somebody please call him and tell him he’s right that Wigan is a much more ambitious club than Newcastle and are destined for the European Champions League.

Of course Wigan are way above Newcastle in the league right now and Geordie manager Steve Bruce has done a tremendous job for the Lancashire club in the last 12 months.

We’re hardly in any position to criticize Wigan, which we think is great little club, and very well run too.

Comments welcome.

    Coventry just signed a defender so I think it may be a replacement for Fox and therefore a slight chance of Fox coming to the toon?

    Seems rather unlikely we’ll get 4. But that would be great!
    Taylor sound like a good deal, as does fox as a young defender. But I though Jow said he wanted experience for the back line?

    Surely if the n’zogbia move falls through we would sign taylor for about 1.5m!?
    Still got a feeling with Saviola – could be scuppered by liverpool though 🙁

    hi guys,
    my 1st post after years of reading nufcblog.
    cant help but get the impression zog has shot himself in the foot by claiming to be so desperate to leave. think he is more than reluctacnt to join the laticks but cant go back on his word so dont think we need to worry about that deal falling through. as much as i liked to watch him play i will be glad to see the back of him

    Saviola
    Veloso
    Taylor
    Fox

    That would be perfect though i do admit i have seen nothing of Fox but i am thinking more along the lines of QUANTITY rather then quality with Fox.

    10.37 A further update from Sky Sports News on Robbie Keane who believe Real Madrid’s Argentine striker Javier Saviola has been in discussions with Spurs over a loan deal. However, if Tottenham’s move for Keane is sucessful then Saviola could make the switch to Anfield.

    Looks like Saviola could be off to Spurs or Liverpool depending on what happens with Keane. Forget Saviola we aint the time to mess about.

    NUFC have struggled to get two players in all month so the prospect of us getting four in one day is preposterous lol but you never know.

    Veloso-12 mill
    Gomis- N’Zogbia+ 3mill
    Taylor-2 mill
    Garcia-straight swap with Enrique
    Fox-2 mill

    Geremi-to Besiktas for 1.5 mil
    Smith to WBA for 3 mill

    This is how imagined the transfers…..but the problem is that we don’t have enough time to realize them.

    JFK hasnt been around NUFC long enough to know that we will end up with nowt lol… Nah, lets keep the hopes up that something like that could happen. I dunno who would be the central defender he talks about tho, but it would surely be somebody already in the EPL. Veloso would be one of the other if we beleive his earlier statement and then there is Taylor ofc… About the forward? who knows…

    Looks like its going to be Gomas if a striker is purchased/loaned.
    I also have a feeling Barry Ferguson may come with Smith going the other way.

    Jk would be off his head to bring Ferguson in, he is 30 years old, was not good enough when he was playing in the EPL when he was in his twenties so why go for him now, would be madness i would rather have Smith.

    8m for Given+6m for N’Zogbia=14-4 for Nolan and 1.5 for Taylor thats 8.5m for the roulette wheel then.
