Pardew – Magpies Not Interested In Mutu

While Alan Pardew obviously will not say which players  Newcastle are after, like Chris Hughton before him, he does say who the club is not interested in.

Adrian Mutu – Magpies not interested

And after yesterday’s reports that Newcastle may be after former Chelsea player, 32 year-old Romanian striker, Adrian Mutu, Alan has said there is no truth in any of the reports linking Mutu with Newcastle.


This is what Pardew said today about the potential Mutu deal:

“I can say 100% there is nothing in that one. No, make that 110%.” “We had the news about Andy and he’s still out.”

“We’re going to be sweating on him for Arsenal so that’s disappointing.”

“And we know that Dan Gosling is going to be out for a period too.”

The news from the local press in Newcastle is that Pardew has been working around the clock to try to get some good deals completed, but so far no deals.

And it seems as we’ve been told these last several days, there has been no progress on any deals Newcastle may be trying to do,  as Alan added:

“I hope so, that’s all I can say.”

“Nothing much has changed and we aren’t any nearer today.”

“But that can change at any stage.”

As we mentioned earlier today there’s  still a decent possibility that Newcastle could do a couple of deals, but they may be struck just hours before the window closes next Monday evening.

We’d be happy is we just got Stephen Ireland through the door, on loan.

Comment welcome.

    Starting to get boring now, is it all an act to make us think that they are working hard to get players in when in fact they haven’t got the money at all and there’s no chance of it happening .

    So has Shearer. He’s too old as well. Seriously, a 30 odd year old, (ex)drug addict with an attitude problem. I’d prefer a local honest Geordie lad.

    Judging by the sound bites coming out of the Toon there’s no signings on the horizon.
    Just another window leaving ‘squeaky bum’ time for the Toon supporters for the rest of the season but a nice little intriguing, exciting gamble for our Controller.

    So Adrian Mutu is not coming to the Toon eh? Ni big miss, he is just another Lovenkrands, but at Least The Danish Jock can keep his nose clean, so to speak.

    lovenkrands stands head and shoulders above mutu.
    a true professional and perfect role model for the youngsters at the club like adam campbell.

    Lovenkrands better than Mutu? I’m sorry but that’s not true at all. I like him but Mutu is a world class player
