Transfer Interest In Damien Duff Grows


Damien Duff is attracting attention in the transfer market, and it appears that Burnley are the latest Premier side showing  interest in the Irish winger (or full-back).

Damien Duff – attracting interest in transfer market


Duff  said he would want to stay at the club, immediately following relegation but since then Ashley has put the club in jail, and nothing has been done.

And amazingly the Tyneside club has been without a manager since May 24th, the day the club was relegated.

But Duff said in the aftermath of relegation. following the Aston Villa terminal defeat:

“I’m as loyal as they come, whether the gaffer stays or goes.” “I’d love to try to get us back up.”

“I’ve loved working with him (Shearer).” “It’s been a proper football club for eight weeks, and it’s about time.”

“It’s just disappointing that we couldn’t stay up for him and the fans.” “I think he’s been brilliant, even though we haven’t got the results to keep us up.”

“It’s the first time in a long while that this place has felt like a proper football club.”

“Things are done right, and it’s been a breath of fresh air. If there’s one man to get us back up, it’s him.”

And of course Giovanni Trapattoni, Ireland’s 70 year-old manager, has said players remain great wherever they play, and he classed Duff as a great player.

So if he stays at Newcastle United,  Damien will have little danger of losing his position in the Irish team, that’s for sure.

We’d like to see Duff stay on Tyneside.

    if he satys, he’d need to take a pay cut. if they’re loyal, the vast amounts of money wont matter as much

    Hope he stays. In the Coca Cola I think he would show some class others do not have.

    Agree Ryantoon, last seasons sicknotes are all beating the drum now… a pity they didn’t show the same fighting spirit month’s ago, their wives and girlfriends will be crapping themselves as they’ll now have to shop in Aldi’s like the rest of us.

    No offence Aldi goer’s…..

    Sort of related but can anyone answer this, Mike Ashley says he wants 100 mil. Allegedly all our players are up for sale. If for example we sold Duff for lets say 3mil, would the asking price then be 97mil. And so on and so on? And who exactly is brokering these supposed deals, I think personally no one will be sold, or bought until the new owners are in situ.

    Tel, it’s a good question along with has the owner DEFINATELY written off the loan?

    and

    Is he seriously selling?

    How did he get so rich?

    Does he actually know what he’s doing/done?

    Does he care?

    As for Duff, I can imagine him and Oba are on similar wages and given the choice I’d know which one I’d rather keep.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if, with a new owner in place, some of these “responsible” for playing so poorly last season say …. hey, drop my wage, I’ll be happy to play and get you back up and then re-negotiate contracts then!

    Ha ha and pigs might fly :/

    Shoot 5 mobiles, hope you’re getting lots of cash for that ad Ed because I keep doin it without thinking 🙂

    Put the owners and lamearses faces on instead of the phones and if you do get money each time we hit them you’d be able to buy the Toon within the week 😆

    Why do people want Duff to stay?

    He has done nothing for this club yet as soon as he comes out and pledges his loyalty everyone is his biggest fan.

    Yes he would probably do well in the championship, but remember he is on 70k a week.

    Offer him a paycut and then see how far his loyalty stretches.

    Spoonman,

    ….”Offer him a paycut and then see how far his loyalty stretches.”

    I think most of our high earners realise that if they DID go elsewhere they’d have to take a pay cut anyway, as nobody else would be stupid enough to pay them what we are.

    i think the top line is really nobody can be sold or bought yet. simply down A we dont have new owners in place or a manager. i really hope we are took over before the begining of july. not only will fat twat get his 100 mill, he will pocket the transfers, plus leave us with half a squad. i can see it coming. he is trying to run us into the ground. a just hope everything is agreed before the transfer window re-opens in 19 days time.

    people slag duff off saying hes only stayin for the money, but the fact is, him along with stevey taylor were the only players who showed any really pride and passion and fight for the club at the end of the season. IMO he is actually one of the players who wants to stay for the right reasons, and i think he is one of the ones who will be gutted 2 hav a relegation on his c.v, not one of the ones who were busy talkin about there holidays after the villa game
