Burnley In For Newcastle Goalkeeper Fraser Forster


News today that Championship club Burnley FC are are close to getting Newcastle United goalkeeper Fraser Forster on loan for next season.

Fraser Forster – Burnley interested – if he’s allowed out on loan next season

Wallsend-born Burnley boss, Brian Laws, has been looking for a new goalkeeper for a while, and the reports suggest he is now looking to take Forster to Turf Moor for a season-long loan deal.

Forster was at Norwich last season, and got rave reviews for his performances at the East Anglia club, and kept 21 clean sheets in 42 total appearances, and is likely to be capped for the England U21 side shortly.

Our information is that the Newcastle manager is still to decide whether to send Tim Krul or Fraser Forster out on loan next season, as both 22 year-old goalkeepers will not be staying on Tyneside next season – but Chris Hughton has still not decided which goalkeeper will be available for a loan deal.

Whichever one goes out on loan will get more first team games, and the one who stays will have an opportunity to fight 35 year-old Steve Harper for the number one position on Tyneside.

Comments welcome.

    I thought it was Krul that was going out on loan and Fraser was to be our No 2 stopper. Very confusing all this.

    Off the subject a bit, but for all those Ashley lover’s out there, our new replica junior kit, is the most expensive in the premiership rrp £40, everyone else £25 – £30, their seems no depth to this man’s greed…….

    From Soccernet “Warning: Any Bolton Wanderers forum users may want to prepare for the predicatble barrage of abuse that will come from confused Newcastle, Everton and West Ham fans.” What a load of bull… !

    Toon1978, a blog post doesn’t mean it’s real but yet again if he doesn’t wanna play for the Toon then fair enough!

    Ashley’s penny-pinching aint gonna help with new signings though.

    It’s Krul who needs to get match sharp after a year on the bench. Forster had a terrific season for Norwich, he’s ready, Krul would do well to get some similar experience marshalling a defence week in week out.

    It’s quite nice to see everybody saying “Who would chose Bolton over Newcastle?” on that site. I wouldn’t read too much into it, though. If he doesn’t come then he doesn’t come – plenty more fish in the sea.

    @HTL: Agreed 😀

    Just read on a website that we’re close to signing a guy called Alexis Burdisso from Cruz Azul Jesso in the Mexican Division 2.

    The person saying it says he knows Chris Hughton and that the guy scored 23 goals in 19 games last season.

    Smells of sweaty bollox to me 😆

    Thump, looks like no-one else will read this, so I’ll let you into a secret. He’s not real! 😉

    Spread this shit though. I want to see how gullible the press are 😀
