N’Zogbia Hints He’d Like To Return To Newcastle


It seems that Charles N’Zogbia would welcome a move back to his former club Newcastle United.

Charles N’Zogbia – he saved Wigan last season

Newcastle were keen to sign Charles in January, after they had sold Andy Carroll to Liverpool, but with just hours left in the window, Wigan asked for a ridiculous fee for their player.

If they were going to lose their best player they wanted big compensation for him, just like Newcastle had received from Liverpool for one of their top players – Andrew Carroll.

The news is that Newcastle went in last week with a low first offer of 5M for Charles, and we expect an increased bid from the Magpies.

Charles also has a Twitter account and he tweeted this yesterday:

“Newcastle is a big club and a great atmosphere to play at St James’ Park!”  ” I enjoyed the time I had playing for NUFC.”

The one problem with Charles is how he would affect the team spirit at Newcastle, since when he was last here, he went in the huff more than once, and seemed to be in his own little world at times.

But since he left Newcastle he seems to have become a better player, if anything, and we are also hoping he has also matured.

If that’s the case,  he would be a tremendous acquisition for Newcastle, and probably worth up to £10M.

It also seems that manager Alan Pardew is a big admirer of N’Zogbia, and of course given the squad Newcastle currently have. the French International would fit right in on one of the wings.

That’s an area Newcastle are planning to strengthen in the summer.

What do you think?

    Who’re we gonna get instead of gameiro? cos he seems pretty sure he doesn’t want to go to a team that is not in Europe, Sturridge is probably unlikely and Ba seems likely but I think we need more than just Ba for our strikers. any ideas on who else we should get?

    I’d definately take Zoggy back like, would be a demon down the left wing.

    As for strikers I can see it being someone none of us expected. Someone like Loic Remy as belmonter mentioned earlier.

    I also think Ba will come in aswell, although I don’t want him because of his knee.

    My realistic first choice however would be Sturridge but I can’t see it happening.

    N’zog and Sturridge would be a good start, if we can hold onto our current players. Add one more good striker to that and we have a very competitive team. Of course the squad would also need increasing via a new batch of young talent being shipped in.

    How in any way does this indicate he would like to come back. He isn’t going to say, my time at Newcastle was shit and I hate all the fans. He is a professional.

    Last stuff I heard :-
    Bid refused for m’bengue but he still expected to sign.
    Gervinho still likely
    Toon will withdraw bid for gameiro if he doesn’t decide soon, still small chance
    Erdinc a target if gameiro doesn’t come
    Jose and Barton both played their last game for toon, club trying to broker good deals in selling them.
    No idea how true this all is.

    I’m not sure we’ll sign anyone that’s being mentioned. There’ll be a sudden anouncement about a player we haven’t actually been linked with yet (if there are still any out there), that seems to be the current trend for the club. I think Zog would be a decent buy though.

    It’s true, we all seem to be forgetting about Jonas, who seems to be getting better, and what about Nolan, he did manage 12 goals last season… not too shabby.

    I would love n zobia back and i dont want a players who dosent want to play for NUFC and Tats gameiro he completely ignores us and tells tat Valencia and PSG are better clubs than NUFC indirectly let this guy go where ever he want s and bring in a player who would like to come to NUFC sacrifiesing champions league look at ben arfa and Tiote they are now stars of NUFC they even left champions league to join us and they are now the diamonds of NUFC fans so i want the players who wants to play for NUFC rather than the one who says they want champions league FOOTBALL or the one who say s we are POOR gameiro and owen u guys suck K

    I hope we withdraw the Gameiro bid. He clearly does not want to come and we want players to play for the shirt.

    roshan Magpie, couldn’t acgree more. If Gameiro doesn’t want to come, then we shouldn’t be pulling out all the stops to get him. Let him go to his Champions league side, we’re better off with someone who really wants to pull on the stripes (and who isn’t 5’5”, unless he’s called Messi)

    I think we are forgetting about the future here guys N’zobia is a hot head and will not stay at one place for more than three years we need to be investing in youth for the wing preferably someone English.

    1 way or another we are going to be a much stronger team then we were last year. Like I’ve said before even the the freebies we’ve been linked with aren’t shaby 🙂

    ——————-Krul——————-
    Simpson–S.Taylor–Collo–Enrique
    ——————-Tiote——————
    ———Barton———Nolan———-
    N’Zogbia————————Ben Arfa
    —————–Sturridge—————-

    Subs-
    GK: Harper, Forster
    RB: R.Taylor
    CB: Williamson, Kadar
    LB: Ferguson
    RM: Jonas
    CM: Guthrie, Vuckic
    LM: Lua Lua
    ST: Ranger, Best, Loven, Ameobi

    So imo we need to buy N’zog and Sturridge, buy better back-up for RB and ST, and bring in a new load of talent that could step up into and of the back-up positions if necessary (ie like Ferguson and Lua Lua have done this season).

    OH, and don’t we have a certain ‘Gosling’ who’s now almost back to full fitness. Having Ben Arfa and Gosling back will be like having two new signings straight away.

    We’ve given gameiro a deadline, I think we’ll pull out in the end. Agree with most on here we shouldn’t get him if he wants to be elswhere.

    He’s a talented, over rated and priced arrogant little cu*t, remember we got Ben Arfa who is 10x the player for only 5M. That is why we should keep looking abroad.

    Think out of the box guys, our targets don’t have to be in the prem nor do they have to be ex players ie. N’zog, Bassong etc!!

    Lads look like Gameiro would rather move to PSG according to Sky sports:
    http://www.skysports.com/story/0,19528,11661_6962983,00.html

    I for one am not to fussed about him he never wanted to be here in the first place!

    So hopefully we get Nzog and gervinho as the wingers…BA on a free and someone like sturridge or podolski someone of that mould!

    At this rate we could just go all gun-ho and stick one GK, 8 midfielders, and a striker. Our current midifield + rumours: Guttierez, Nolan, Gosling, Tiote, Cabaye, N’Zogbia, Tiote, Lua Lua, Guthrie, Vuckic, Pratley etc etc. Be like the entertainers all over again, except with a few more goals against 🙁
