Newcastle In Talks With Kevin Nolan On New Deal

There is news that Newcastle have started negotiating with their captain Kevin Nolan, about a new extended contract at Newcastle.

Kevin Nolan – in negotiations with Newcastle on new deal

Kevin was signed from Bolton Wanderers just over two years ago for around £4M, and Kevin signed a four and a half year deal at the club.

So while he has a contract at Newcastle until the summer of 2013, the People is reporting Newcastle want him tied down to a longer term deal.

Kevin has been great for Newcastle, after a difficult first six months at the club, but in 88 appearances for the Tyneside club he has an amazing 29 goals

Kevin is currently joint  top scorer at Newcastle this season with 11 goals, and is joint top with the departed Andy Carroll, who left for Liverpool in January.

This may be a ploy for Newcastle to sign up those top players they can, and follows their successful signing of Cheick Tiote last month on a massive new six and a half year deal to stay on Tyneside, which Cheick seems more than willing to do.

The 28 year-old Liverpudlian has often talked about seeing out his career at Newcastle, and he is one of those emotional players who thrives on living in City that;s just mad on football and its football club.

And of course Kevin loves playing in front of 52,000 fanatical fans, at every home game for Newcastle at St. James’ Park.

Signing Kevin Nolan on a long term deal would be very good business by Newcastle.

    Nolan’s value to the club goes far beyond his goals.

    I thought Pardew had said we will be leaving all internal contract negotiations for the summer? Not complaining though, would be good to see the skipper tied up, hopefully would see others follow suit.
    That being said, I’m not convinced that he should get a pay rise though as he is already on big wages, so if we could convince him to sign up for a similar amount or slightly lower than what he is earning presently, then this will be a good deal.

    Nolan’s been a great captain for us. Best we’ve had in ages. I’d be more than happy for him to finish his career here if he continues in the same manner.

    I think the club are probably offering him a slighty lesser wage on a longer term, so he’s still got 2 years left at 65k/week, now, he’ll probably get 4 years at 50k/week, which I think for a 28yr old is still fantastic wages….

    I can’t see him getting the same wages for another 4yrs tho, as that wouldn’t be value to the club, as he’d have no sell-on value at 32/33yrs old!!!

    Hopefully Barton will follow suit & sign a similar contract too, followed by Enrigue & others 🙂

    so wait nolan gets a longer contract ( if he signs )
    but the cant give barton 3 years ( they only offerd 2 and he said he wants 3 and will even take a wage cut )
    so although this is good news i think this just make barton less likely to sign a 2 year contract knowing that he can probaly get a 3 year one :S

    Don’t think Nolan is a player to take us to the next level, not as a cm any way as he doesn’t have the fitness or creativity needed. Obviously goals are great, but you need more than that in his position, Don’t know why we would give him £65k a week till hes’s 33 !
