Vladimír Weiss Would Be Terrific Loan Signing For Newcastle

Good news this morning that Newcastle could turn to Vladimír Weiss, the Manchester City 20 year-old Slovakian winger for a season-long loan deal.

Vladimír Weiss – Newcastle loan signing?

In fact we are watching the New Zealand – Slovakia game as we write this piece (multi-tasking), and Weiss is on the right wing for the Slovakian side in the  Group F game in Rustenburg.

Apparently Chris Hughton had the 20-year-old on a  list of options in January during the transfer window, but Weiss joined Bolton Wanderers and made 13 appearances with no goals for the Lancashire side.

But now that Newcastle are back in the Premiership,  the Tyneside club would seem to be a good available option for the youngster.

Vladimir comes from a real footballing family, as his father, Vladimír Weiss, is currently head coach of the Slovakia national football team, and his grandfather, also named Vladimír Weiss, was a very good player who represented Czechoslovakia.

And Newcastle chief scout Graham Carr knows all about Weiss from his time at Eastlands, and when we watched the youngster last season several times, he looked a great young player in the making.

Just the type of player we need on Tyneside.

The youngster has played 5 times with a single goal for Manchester City and he would be a terrific season-long loan signing for Newcastle, so we have to hope there is some truth in this report today.

The Bratislava, Czechoslovakia born youngster was at his local club Inter Bratislava until he joined Manchester City back in 2006, as a 16 year-old.

He looks a smashing winger in the making and has played 10 times already for his country, and would be a terrific loan signing for the club – if we can get him.

Comments welcome.

Note: Slovakia have gone ahead 1-0 after 50 minutes-  with a terrific cross from Weiss which Vittek headed home in style – we told you Weiss was good. 😀

    Yes please!

    Get him, Wilshire, Cleverley and Welbeck (or Macheda, although I doubt ManU will loan him out) and we almost have the squad width we need. Add a versatile defender in there and a top striker in there and we can stay up.

    welbeck??? he has been dreadful on loan in the fizzy pop league, cleverley would be a good loan signing, wilshire is going to be a top player, but plays centrally and we dont need another central midfielder, and we have vuckic coming through, the last thing we want to do is prevent our younger players development by signing to many players

    geordielad – our central midefielders are not good enough as nolan has lost his legs and smith will struggle against the premierleagues best
    Barton will be good cover next season if we play guthrie in the middle with a new signing
    sell nolan and keep smith just for extra cover

    Weiss looked quite good today and I think we should buy the experienced rommedhal who looked terrific against holland
    Podolskis at Cologne who are crap so he could be one to go for on the sly but he will probably step back up to a biggish club after the WC

    No go for me. He focus too much on dribbling past defenders instead of actually putting good crosses into the box. Struggled to gain first team for Bolton and would not do well for us. I prefer Cleverly.

    weiss is a decent player, but is quite lightweight, I think barton should play with guthrie next season. I agree about nolan, but he never had legs to lose, he has never had pace, he is the same player now, as when he played at bolton. And I would sell smith, he aint good enough, and never was.
    Rommedhal is 31 nearly 32, and is not what we need, we dont want to start signing average players who are over 3o, he would be another geremi, we far better sign players like seb larrson or stephen hunt, right age, premiership experience, right attitude and price.

    fair enough geordie lad i agree on seb larsson defonitely

    Cleverly is not a premierleague standrd player yet and when he is, roll up fighting for his place in one of the worser teams in the league – not good enough, at least Weiss has something more about him

    i been a fan of weiss for the last 2 season but too bad he dont play much game for man city, its possible for a loan signing – even a permanent deal is also possible.

    he can play on the right and even the left. good player GET HIM !
