Cleverley Loan Deal Now In Doubt Because Of Starting Demand

News in the Sunday Sun yesterday that Newcastle face a fight with three other PL clubs to get Tom Cleverley to the club on loan for next season, but that’s not the club’s only problem concerning getting Cleverley on Tyneside.

Tom Cleverley – looking at Bolton and Wigan now?

Bolton, Wigan and West Ham are the other clubs interested but the news is  that Tom would prefer to play his football at Newcastle next season, if something can be worked out with his parent club, Manchester United.

Alex Ferguson is not surprisingly insisting that  Cleverley be guaranteed a regular starting place this season.

That demand probably comes from when Newcastle  had Giuseppe Rossi on loan for the start of the 2006-2007 season,  and Glenn Roeder hardly played the youngster – and the Red Devils took him back in January of 2007, and Alex was not happy with that loan deal.

Just like we want our loan players to play regular football when we send them out on loan – that’s the reason for a loan deal after all – so do other clubs who send their players to Newcastle.

Hughton has admitted that Ferguson’s stance on Cleverley could be a problem – but that surprises us a little – because any loan players we get have to be played regularly – although maybe not a regular starting position –  which is the problem for Chris.

Of course we have Jonas Gutierrez and Wayne Routledge, who are the likely starters on the wings for Newcastle next season, which is probably where Chris is  coming from.

Tom Cleverley would like a move to Newcastle, but because of the uncertainty, has also already had talks with Bolton and Wigan.

We’ll closely follow the situation, but it may be that bringing Tom Cleverley to Newcastle on loan next season will just not happen.

What do you think?

    What have I said recently about loaning Cleverley?
    Ferguson is dictating terms about when the bloke plays. Hope we beat your side on the first day – would just love it, love it!!!!! Go for Guzman please.

    I’m with WesJameson on this, why do we want to give playing time to a Manc Usa player when we can’t give any to our own young players???

    As for the players you’ve mentioned Rotonda, I don’t think any of them will want to play for a club who’ll likely be in the relegation battle this season & plus we won’t be paying as much in wages, so I’d stop going on about them, because thats all you seems to post about, no matter what the subject is…. 🙁

    If the Daily Telegraph is anything to go by it looks like problems arising about Ben Arfa too. Seems JLoyd Samuel may be a stopgap but perhaps Tavernier could also step up to the plate after all the praise he was given.

    If we are in for a scrap I would rather have us do it with our own signed up bought and paid for players and not loanees. If it is going to be a battle then let it be fought by players who will not be leaving us when their stint is over. Still think we will avoid relegation with a few bruises and a lot of pride in bloodied youngsters.

    In view of Taylor being injured for such a time perhaps Campbell may now be a good option? De Guzman would be a great addition as would ben Arfa. Van Anholt on loan with an option to buy would be a good one too. Koren could give some good service and be a mate for Vukic.

    Good why do we want him for when we have:
    Who can all play in his postion would much rather see Haris Vuckic get given a chance rather a Man utd youngster !!!!

    I am all for hughton targeting players thats are:-
    *the right age
    *have the right attitude
    *and have something to prove

    I was more thinking along the lines of sidwell, gunter, curtis davies, etc

    Not players like perch, j lloyd samuel etc, I think perch is ok as a utility player, but if he is going to be our first choice right back, then we will seriously be struggling this season.

    If we had signed onouha, sidwell, s.campbell (1year) weiss (loan) and another striker on loan I would have been happy and it wouldnt cost alot, probably 10m tops

    Haris Vuckic is our future star to wear the black n’ white. He is gonna be a star everybody has seen that. He is super strong, has a blistering long range shot, and picks the perfect person to pass to with a thru ball. Why do we need Cleverly.
