Newcastle To Sign Kevin Nolan Long Term At Newcastle?

Kevin Nolan has been a huge player in these last two seasons for Newcastle.

Kevin Nolan – scoring Newcastle’s first goal Saturday

And with Kevin’s skills and goal-scoring ability, he has helped Newcastle come back from the dark days of summer, 2009, to where Newcastle are right now, in  9th place in the Premier League and only 2 points off 7th place.

There are rumors that Alan Pardew is trying to get Newcastle to tie down Kevin to a long term deal,  which will keep him at  the Newcastle club for say the next five years.

Thats sounds good to us.

Kevin is one of those guys who is just a born leader, and while he did have a tough first six months at the Tyneside club, he’s turned out to be one of Newcastle best ever buys at just £4M from Bolton Wanderers.

And of course he was given the captaincy last summer by Chris Hughton, and Alan Pardew has already said he will remain his captain at Newcastle.

Kevin Nolan’s goal after 22 minutes on Saturday was  his 12th goal of the season, and as usual he scored a vital goal in what was a vital game for the Magpies, and is now Newcastle’s top scorer.

Peter Lovenkrands also praised his captain today:

“Kevin has also been scoring more than his fair share, which has helped massively.”

“It was an even more important win afterwards when you look at the results of West Brom and Birmingham.”

“We could have been right in it. It was important to get the result and it looks to have been a crucial win.

Unfortunately Kevin received his 10th yellow card of the season, and will now miss the next two games on Saturday at Villa Park and two weeks tonight at home to the red devils.

Kevin has often waxed lyrical about everything Newcastle, and it would be great to see the Liverpudlian sign a new extended deal to stay on Tyneside.

Kevin’s record at Newcastle is 88 games played and 30 goals scored, which is just phenomenal goal-scoring for a central midfielder.

If Newcastle can also get Joey Barton and Jose Enrique to commit long term to Newcastle, as we suggested yesterday, Newcastle fans would be flying, as would Alan Pardew too.

    I think people will have to start cutting Pardew some slack if he gets Nolan, Barton and Enrique to commit. These are all lads who have pledged the rest of their careers to Newcastle, but two of them have wavered recently. There’s been a lot of talk of selling Jose in the summer, so if Pardew can hang on to him in particular, he’ll have done a very good job. I think Barton will sign up again anyway and I’ve never had any doubts about Nolan.

    Talk ’em round AP.

    I agree, we need to tie him down but I wouldn’t offer a 28 yr old a 5 yr contract, maybe 4 with the option of a 5th but it would also have to be a reduced wage if he’d accept that because we need to try & keep all the players on 50k/week or less, so that we don’t end up in the same siu as we did under FFS… in debt up o our rafters… 🙂

    I expect Barton and Nolan so sign up however Enrique I can see leaving for SerieA or LaLiga and I wouldnt begrudge him it.

    Whether Enrique stays or goes Pardew has done nothing at Newcastle that I can dislike him for and I hope that continues

    I think all 3 were always going to given and sign new contracts as soon as prem safety was made. All the crap comes from the london raggs who are gutted that they dont have any real bad stories to print about us and lost of nufc fans buy it every time belleving every story.
    The current managment have made some big mistakes in the past but they run a tight ship now and i think nufc will be a very strong club both on and off the pitch in the next few seasons

    yeah looks likely we will avoid the drop, but to give credit to Pardew is a mistake, IMO he`s the one who put us in danger of relegation.
    Guys, tacticly naive, how can any major club manager play three across the back, it`s football suicide.
    As for getting Enrique to sign an extension, believe he`s already got a deal waiting elsewhere, so we better get on the ball and line up a decent replacement.
    Sure both scousers will sign and both will get three year extensions.
    The London rags ? grow up and lose that regional inferiority complex.

    WRONG !

    Pardwho was brought in before the Carroll sale so he could stand by and watch as AC was shipped out the door.

    Hughton (God bless him) would have made a stand and exposed the Fatman’s lies.
