Hectic Transfer Day Next Tuesday At Newcastle

Newcastle United have said today that Kevin Nolan is not returning to the Reebok Stadium.

Kevin Nolan – lighten up –  you’re not going back to Bolton – honest

But Chris Hughton expects a very busy day in the transfer market next Tuesday, the day after we have added another 3 points to our league total against Leicester City – hopefully.

And it seems the prospect of Gareth Bale coming to Tyneside from Tottenham Hotspur on loan would depend on how much Newcastle would be willing to supplement his £45K/week wages.

The Evening Chronicle today is reporting that a return to Bolton Wanderers for Nolan, who has scored 2 goals in two games for the Magpies, looks extremely unlikely despite under-pressure Gary Megson’s hopes of getting him back on loan.

Nolan’s agent Mark Curtis said today:

“Kevin’s happy at Newcastle and wants to help them get back into the Premier League.”

And Hughton is also hoping he can keep Kevin on Tyneside, with Nolan captaining the side in the second half  last night.

Chris was asked if he thought Nolan would stay this season:

“I would be very, very hopeful of that.” “Come Tuesday at 5:00 pm we are looking to have a squad that is able to compete.”  “I suppose you look at the squad today and you think if you get a couple of injuries it will test the squad even more so.”

“But everybody is braced for a hectic day on Tuesday – some more than others.”  “It will also settle the players down as well.”

“Some will have had their names bandied around or there is speculation whether they are staying or going, but come 5pm on Tuesday, we’ll know whatever group of lads are in there are the ones who are fighting to get out of this division.”

Hughton is trying to keep Steven Taylor and Fabricio Coloccini at the club, and both players were rested last night. And of course we had to read into that they may be on their way – but not so.

Hughton said:

“I can tell you 100% there is nothing to read into that.”

And late news from Spain today that Racing Santander are keen on taking Xisco on loan, with the striker also left out last night.

We think Xisco has no future on Tyneside, not at £ 50K/week for sure, with Carroll, Ameobi and Ranger all preferred to the Spanish U21 International, and another striker soon likely to be drafted in.

It would be best for Xisco to get regular football elsewhere, but just how much Racing Santandar are willing to pay of his rather high wages is a good question.

    Dont understand how a guy like Carroll can get a game but we have seen almost nothing of Sisco ?
    Ameobi had some horrendous games, untill he got to play regularly now he`s doing good.
    The Sisco Kid should have been allowed at least a chance to show if he has it or not.
    You dont get to play for the spanish U21`s without some talent, No?
    Guess it has to do with wages and some kind of bias ?

    I agree, Xisco he has been left out in the cold by all the managers, I can only guess he is not doing the business in training, but thats hard to believe… Still not conviced by Ameobi, I do think his experience will be vital this season though as our most senior forward…

    Ryan – Kids are more intelligent than you think – stop trying to repress them as you repressed yourself.

    Id rather be accused of “writing in a clever way” (if thats meant to be an insult where you were dragged up) than using the vile language as yourself and Stuart do continuously.

    Its not neccessary, warranted or needed.

    Like I said , some are just lacking class.

    Don’t talk to Stardust he’s in a bad mood.

    He’s been going round telling everyone it’s Moat who is selling all these players not Ashley.

    I mean it’s more than obvious there is to be no sale at all, so that’s why were selling the players so numb nuts doesn’t have to put his hand in his pocket over the next year.

    can anyone who wants hughton as permanent manager go to this site and then you might understand why its a bad idea repeating past mistakes, then sacking a good coach, hughton is using shearers routeen on the training ground that’s why thing are going well when he ran kinnears routine we were unfit and useless, we need shearer or a good manager, not a failure like we usually get and not our coach he needs to carry on doing a good job as what he does is just as important, if not more so.

    The plot thickens..here is another rumour from SKYby a bloke named John Holliday….FFS back…again???

    Mike Ashley is a man on a mission. He wants to sell Newcastle United. He wants £100m. But he has, as yet, been unable to find a buyer. Is it becoming mission impossible?
    I think not. There are THREE parties speaking to the owner of Newcastle – not two as reported by many media organisations.
    Let’s start with north east businessman Barry Moat. Ashley, I’m told, quite likes Moat. He’s a local lad done well and a chap he’s very happy to have a beer with. But Moat is struggling with one vital aspect of any deal. He’s struggling to come up with the money. Will he? A source, close to the negotiations, tells me it’s doubtful.
    Then there’s Geoff Sheard. He claims he’s leading a bid by an unnamed American company to buy Newcastle. Sheard is a bit of a red herring. He’s the man who once tried to buy Sheffield Wednesday. He also once ran the club shop at Preston North End in the 90s. Has he got £100m under his mattress? Nope. What Sheard wants is “exclusivity” – an agreement with Ashley whereby he can approach rich businessmen and try to sell the dream to them. He’s a long shot.
    The THIRD party involved in talks is an unnamed consortium from Ireland, who’ve got former Newcastle chairman Freddie Shepherd involved. They certainly have the cash and are major players. I’m told they will show Ashley they have proof of funds by close of play today.
    So why is it taking so long? And will Ashley sell?
    Ashley bought Newcastle for £130m two years ago. He wants some of that money back. He wants £50m upfront, with a further £50m deferred for a couple of years.
    The club is forecast to lose £57m this year. It has an overdraft of £39m with Barclays, which the bank hopes to reduce to £10m – a par figure for a Championship club. And Monday is the day when Barclays want to do it – so the rush is now on.
    So who will get it?
    My bet is with the Irish. If not them, Moat. Even if he can’t find the £50m upfront figure, I’m told Ashley could yet sell it to Moat by loaning him the money.
    In the world of football finance, nothing’s impossible is it…

    It would completely idiotic to let Nolan go or loan him out!

    It’s irritating that clubs try to get our players on loan or cheaply, though understandable I suppose.

    If we HAVE to let anyone go let it be Colo (but 4M plus or a loan with the other club paying his full wages), Geremi and Butt.

    Would love to see IN (loan or otherwise) 2 defenders, one mf and one striker (Lovenkrands would do). Good to see some of the kids wearing war paint at last, against Huddersfield. It would be great to try out, say, Donaldson and Baheng with sub appearances in the first team very soon too so as to bring in other fringe players.

    Yeah I know Hitman but we shouldnt let our standards fall down a slippery road – just because some kids from certain areas swear more – not all do.

    A friend of mine recently moved from Four Lane Ends to Hexham – his kids went from broad Geordie to the Queens English in a year. I am not saying theres anything wrong with a Geordie accent – I am just pointing out if kids see swearing as the norm they will do it and society is worse of for it.

    So if we set the non swearing standard – we dont help the kids fall down the slope – time to get off my high horse – ive got vertigo lol

    They have found their level so are playing well.
