Nile Ranger To Be Offered Improved Long-Term Deal At Newcastle

19 year-old Nile Ranger seems to be coming through the ranks quickly on Tyneside, and that’s one reason Chris Hughton seems unwilling to loan the player out, to the many Championship clubs that would take him in a New York minute.

Nile Ranger – to be offered a new contract

And news today that Newcastle are to offer the youngster a new and improved contract on Tyneside, and that’s good news.

It was back in mid-April of 2009 that Nile Ranger signed his last contract, which was a three-and-a-half-year deal, and that back then was just reward for the excellent start he had made to life at St. James’ Park.

And manager Chris Hughton is of course a big fan of the youngster, and certainly Chris has brought along the youngster in fine style, and Nile keeps improving all the time, and the club have obviously thought that the Londoner was worth a new improved and extended contract.

The reports suggest Newcastle want the lad to sign a new 5.5 year deal, which will keep him on Tyneside until 2015, and he’ll then be a mature 24 years old.

Chris Hughton’s desire to keep the 19 year-old at the club suggests that he must be doing very well in training, and of course Hughton is a great coach, and he’s already brought Andy Carroll through the ranks quickly, to become a full International for England at just 21 years old.

There’s no reason whatsoever that he cannot do the same thing with Nile.

Maybe in a couple of years time we’ll have big Andy and big Nile terrorizing the opposing defenses – what a wonderful thought that is. 😀

    Big mistake Chris H about Ranger. Ranger needs to be loaned out to a championship club so he can play reguarly and add some goals to his goal-tally. The one thing Ranger lacks is goals and the only way he will get them is to play reguarly and that wont happen for Newcastle

    You just want a chance to crack that ‘Loan Ranger’ gag again, don’t you?

    Apart form Ranger being needed just now as our !st choice attacking sub, I reckon Hoots is reluctant to let him loose to make headlines at the wrong end of the newspaper. With what has gone on with Carroll (not to mention 3 violent conduct charges) any tabloid fuss would about be as welcome as a fart in a phonebox.
    But I liked seeing Ranger play on the right against Arsenal and I’ve just about given up hope of Routledge making that his own now. So in the meantime, I’d like to see him get games there.

    Keep in mind that Routledge played against Villa and had a great game. He was only dropped in favour of Ben Arfa and now we’re back to last season with square pegs in round holes.

    Agree too, all wingers are inconsistent : Lennon, nani, Walcott etc bit he’s not gonna get any better or confident if you don’t play him for a centre midfielder. It’s my only gripe with Houghton, Guthrie is a centre mid, end of, he should have had his chance saturday instead of smith with routs on the right. Same with ranger, forward not winger, he will never get the goals he needs out there. It’s all about waiting for the oppurtunity. That should have came for both him and Guthrie in their right positions last week.

    All these contract extensions has me thinking of january already what do you think will we be busy or CH will make his usual 1 or 2 shrewd moves… I dont think we can out right buy him but i would like to see us make a run at McGeady from Spartak bring him back home, to bad we couldnt swap forster for him with some cash we really could use another wing wizard… If we had him and HBA next year we would be pretty darn threatining… what do you think?

    Well Ranger has a high total in the reserve league on goals and has done since he joined our youth, maybe some championship experiance will do him well, For Jan we need someone who can set upgoals, with good strenght in the MIDDLE, yes Nolan can score and setup but he plays futher foward and from out CM region we dont create much we hope our wingers can cross and create ALL the goals we are pretty much cutting out 50% of the roots to goal by not using the middle as much as we should, a player like Fabregas who can do the deaftest touches to Andy or others but someone quite strong to help with Tiote, not sure who this guy is but hope we can get someone or hopefully this could be Dan Goslings place who will feel like a new player in Jan.

    I think Ranger’s likely to get games up front with Lovenkrands not really finding his feet just yet and Shola being as injury prone as he is. We should definitely be giving Routelidge more of a shot a his natural position, but with Barton showing just how dangerous he can be from that position, I can see why Hoots hasn’t given him a straight run. He should play out there against Chelski. Ranger as a sub for Carroll or Shola.
