Vladimir Weiss Loan Deal To Glasgow Rangers Very Close


Sky Sports News is reporting this morning that Glasgow Rangers are closing in on the signing of Manchester City youngster 20 year-old Vladimir Weiss, on a season long loan deal.

Vladimir Weiss – loan move to Rangers?

And that will be bad news for Newcastle fans, as Vladimir has been one of the loan targets of the Magpies, and it’s now looking like the club will miss out on the 13 times capped Slovakian International.

Manchester City are ready to loan out their highly-rated right winger, as he will not make City’s 25 man squad for this season.

The news is that Celtic had also been interested in Weiss, but the skillful winger is set to make the switch to rivals Rangers.

Rangers manager Walter Smith is keen to bolster his squad after having to unload a number of his stars during the summer months,  because of money concerns at the club.

And Weiss is believed to be in Glasgow today to undergo a medical and have talks with Rangers, before tying up a move to the Ibrox club.

As we said, if that is indeed true,  it will be bad news for Newcastle fans.

Comments welcome.

    if weiss is 20 years old why does it matter to man city that he won’t make the 25 man squad? he would still be able to play as he is under 21 surely? not that i’m disputing the fact that loaning him out would probably be good for both weiss and city

    THere are obviously others above him in the pecking order, which inadvertantly means he maybe aint all that?

    The first three people through the gate on any match day would be better than Perch, my Granny included….

    Could it be that the majority of our targets do not want to come here? In the days of KK and SBR they would have flocked at the doors of St James Park. Not now. Why? Does the soccer grapevine say that NUFC under Ashley is a no go area? Have we, under Ashley, lost our kudos, been robbed of our heritage by a barrow boy from the concrete jungle of north London?

    hi im new to the blog, and i only just registered as i am sick to death of hearing our own fans slagging our own players off. Everybody needs to get off PERCH`s back and give the lad a chance, for christs sake man he had his baptism of fire against the potential champions of the league, of course he is going to be a bit nervous, some of you lot need to take a chill pill and start putting more effort into supporting and willing our players to do well, than you do slagging them off, no wonder every other club in the country contests that we are the best fans when they see the stuff we write and say about our own players. GET A GRIP!

    HOWAY THE LADS! LETS KICK THE VILLAINS BACK TO BIRMINGHAM!

    Us being relegated last season will have ht our street cred, and maybe players are afraid to come here incase that happens again this season.

    Newcastle isnt the major draw for players anymore like it used to be. We’re a newly promoted team, we have no money to spend and the fat controllers in charge. We clearly arent going to attract the same caliber of players as we used to.

    I’d love it if we made a few surprise signings before the end of the window, but can anyone still see that happening?

    Even the Ben Arfa deal has dragged on so long that it doesnt look likely anymore.

    Howay Cashlety and Hoots, prove me wrong…..please?

    i know its the same team we went down with, and we do need some new players, not squad players, first team players 2-3 i think

    But its the same squad that went down, fair enough, but the likes of enrique, collo, guthrie, carroll etc have improved alot with the experience, and dressing room morale is now good, so not everything is the same, im sick of pundits sticking their noses in, cant wait till we prove them wrong.

    Weiss is going to Rangers. Arfa is going to Italy most likely. We have missed the bus once again. Thanks Ashley – sorry about the birth certificate!

    I think everyone should wait till the window closes, then we can make all these statements, i know what everyone means, but we need to wait and see what happens, i thought we would let a couple of players go aswell

    I wouldnt want to play for newcastle atm and ive been a fan all my life. The current squad is Average no real talent and has a few thugs, The Manager is a rookie, The Chairman isn’t going to spend, Club is regularly in the Media for the wrong reasons. And the pressure of playing infront of a demanding 52,000 at sjp.

    @hitman

    It’s true but i can’t stand Garth Crooks

    here is the sort of player we need to get in, but newcastle wont of even heard of him, they dont even have a scouting network, seen him play a few times in the youth games on sky, he stood out so much, he reminded me alot of henry

    Getting closer to the window`s closing, with not a viable target in sight.
    ARE we gonna get anyone decent in? does`nt look like it.
    Should have been the top priority since last christmas, when promotion looked assured, to have compiled a list of players that would improve the side and ensure survival in this competitive league.
    And i`m not talking about a plodder, an injured unproven freebie and an ageing free agent(read Perch, Duckling and Campbell)
    We have been associated with a Portugese Striker, a power midfielder from Holland and of course Ben Arfa.
    All of which may have been decent buys, so what exactly are we waiting for?
    Were they too expensive ?
    Like most fans at this club frustration becomes part of the package and watching Man U. take a stroll in the park against us Monday only makes it clear what kind of a future this side has in the upcoming season.
    Even with a couple of decent additions, it`s my opinion it will still be a struggle to survive.
    So hopefully the club will get off the dime and begin to build a decent PL side, please no more cheapos or plodders, just a couple of decent young prospects that will be part of a decent future side.

    these are the players to take us forward, as wenger has done for years, rather than spending millions on overated players

    geordie lad why would we want another 6ft+ striker, we’ve got about 5, we need a small pacey striker that can play off of carroll, like a young lovenkrands

    exactly newcastle mole, thats the point, we need to be looking at players like this, having scouts assigned to holland, france, germany etc, we need to get decent scouts from european sides, our ones are useless! if they think players like adjei, spear, zamblera are any good, i have seen these kids, they are terrible, i dont know what anyone seen in them

    Nufc_Rychigo 13….Its not because we were relegated,many teams have come back from the lower leagues not just in England but also in Italy,Spain,Germany.

    Napoli and Genoa managed to get some cracking signings in their first season in the Seria A.

    geordielad, drogba is more power then pace, and personally id prefer a smaller striker as if we have two 6ft+ strikers, we will just play long balls all game and the two strikers will get the flick ons but noone will recieve them, we should look at someone like giovani dos santos from spurs to play just off carroll, he’s quick and has a bag of tricks and isnt likely to play a lot of games for spurs

    i know a scout that worked under ashley, and he says he found some amazing talented players, and passed on the info, and as soon as the toon top brass heard the clubs wanted 1-3m for the players, it was a none starter
