N’Zogbia Moves To Wigan For £6M Plus Ryan Taylor


The Daily Mail is reporting that England Under-21 international Ryan Taylor has joined Newcastle United, in a deal which sees Charles N’Zogbia move to Wigan Athletic, and Newcastle also get an additional £6M.

Ryan Taylor – Newcastle get him plus £6M for Zog

We don’t know if this story by the Mail is true, but if it is it would mean that Charles was valued at around £8M, which would be a good deal for the Tyneside club.

We got the lad for around £400K from French club Le Havre in August, 2004, which is another way the Youth strategy can work at Newcastle, by bringing money into the club for those we elect to sell.

Taylor, who was out of contract at the JJB in the summer, has scored 6 goals in his 56 games at Wigan, but of course 4 of those goals have been in successive games against Newcastle.

Joe Kinnear said yesterday about Ryan:

“Ryan’s very versatile, and that’s the reason why I went for him.”

“He’s got a long throw and he’s also excellent at set plays.”

“He scores goals from dead ball situations. He can play wide left, left-back, right-back and wide right.”

“If we have injuries in those areas, the boy’s capable of doing exceptionally well.

“He played for England’s Under-21s, and I think there’s much more to come from him.”

We have to hope this news is true, because Joe said that Ryan coming to Newcastle was dependent on Charles going the other way.

If it’s true then Ryan become the 3rd player through the door for Newcastle in this winter transfer window, and it seems another great deal for the club.

Comments welcome.

    Glad to have the Lads that we have bought so far BUT the rest of the transfers have gone a bit T!TS up now

    Just hope that Johnson & Veloso were smoke screens for M’bia BUT it will be same ol Newcastle if we dont get any of them

    With NUFC everything always starts out so brilliantly & ends up in misery EVERY F**KING TIME

    I wouldnt do this deal until we have already signed a goalscorer.

    We havent signed anyone who scores the same number as Zog in total, let alone one player.

    We are fighting a relegation battle here and now, not safe half way up the table and adding a few extra players for the future.

    Other teams have made some sensible changes.

    There is a small rumour going round about Cisse and us, his wife has opened a boutique in Newcastle, the Sunderland deal isnt working out, but I amnot sure if that is for the Summer or now, anyone else heard anything similar?

    looks like michael johnson is not coming because i was just listening to sky sports and it sed that man city will not let michael johnson leave because he is inaspensable to the club and has great future, and they also claim that they have come for him to late in the transfer window! but the reporters also claimed that all the newcastle representives including mike ashley are sat down in the transfer cabin and are discussin player and calling up lubs for enquries.

    The Times reported this (practically the same article) about ten minutes before the mail did, so there may at least be some truth to it.

    We didn’t know much about the Nolan deal until it happened, so hopefully they’re keeping their cards close to their chests on other transfer possibilities

    Hi Guys,

    Been reading this blog for a good while (good work Ed) and find some of the comments interesting if not a little too negative at times.

    Anyways I think that by the end of the day we’ll have R Taylor, D Fox and a striker (Bent) signed. Ps this is an educated guess and not wanting to misguide any1 thinking I have inside info, though I wish I did.
