Newcastle will lose more players this month before the transfer season finally ends.
Jonas Gutierrez – on his way to Portsmouth?
It’s just a question of how many more of the squad we will lose this month, but once Duff completes his move to Fulham in the next 48 hours, it looks like Argentine Jonas Gutierrez could be the next to leave.
Portsmouth owner Al Fahim has said his club are in talks with both Zaki and Newcastle’s Jonas Gutierrez.
Dubai businessman Al Fahim has yet to complete his long drawn out purchase of Pompey, but he has lined up some additions to Paul Hart’s squad.
Portsmouth were interested in Jonas 18 months ago when Harry redknapp was manager and almost signed him that January for £8M from Real Mallorca.
Al Fahim told Emirates Business 24/7
“We are in negotiations with Amr Zaki to bring him in on a loan deal with a view to a permanent transfer,” Al Fahim
“We are also speaking to Newcastle about the possibility of bringing Jonas Gutierrez to the club.”
We think Gutierrez is expendable and hthe Argentine wants to leave the club in any case.
Certainly he will never score many goals in his career, as even yesterday he was straight through on goal in the first half, and didn’t even shoot, his confidence was so low. He has yet to score a goal for Newcastle.
But if Jonas does leave, that means Newcastle will have lost both our wingers and it seems we need to sign full backs and wingers and then a center back and an experienced striker.
How many we’ll be able to sign is anybody’s guess right now, but the squad we have must stand a decent chance of promotion on evidence so far this season, but it’s still far too small.
