Nile Ranger Attracting Premier Interest


Newcastle fans will realize that when a player at the club signs a long term deal, it has little to do with how long the player will remain on Tyneside.

Nile Ranger – allowed to leave Newcastle

Andy Carroll signed an improved five year deal last October,  but he was out of the club in January.

And Nile Ranger, the promising 20 year-old old striker, signed a new improved five year deal shortly after that, but was put up for offer a week or so ago by manager Alan Pardew.

Long term contracts are more to protect the club in case the player should be sold, because it ensures the Magpies get the maximum transfer fee, and it’s not reduced because the player has one year or so left on his contract, as an example.

If the player has no time left on his contract, it runs out in other words, then he’s a free agent and the club gets nothing for him.

Nile Ranger is attracting the interest of a couple of clubs, Bolton and newly promoted QPR, and a few more clubs based in London are also said to be interested the England U-20 striker.

We expect Nile to be linked up with another club this summer, but of course that club will need to at least match the contract terms he is getting on Tyneside.

Ranger got into a bit of trouble as a juvenile in London, and it may not be best for him to move back to the Capital, and certainly when Chis Hughton was considering moving the youngster out on loan last summer, he didn’t want to move him to a London club.

Nile was signed from Southampton in 2008, and in fact he was almost fired from the south coats club,  because of his behavior off the filed.

Since Alan Pardew arrived last December, the new manager was less than impressed in Ranger’s training and his overall professionalism, and although Alan said Nile had improved, it seems it wasn’t enough improvement  to convince the manager he had a future at Newcastle.

Nile has represented England at both the U-19 and U-20 levels, and we have to hope he gets fixed up with another club this summer.

    If Ranger is on his way out I reckon it’ll be more to do with his attitude than his playing quality like.

    Just read your personal note Ed and I guess that you will be treated with chemotherapy now. My mother was diagnosed with breastcancer a couple of years agao and the chemotherapy was probably the worst part of the treatment.

    HOPE YOU WILL GET THROUGH THIS AND WE WISH YOU ALL THE BEST OF LUCK!!!

    We ship him out on loan for 2 years.
    They pay his wages.

    We sit back and hope he grows up and fulfils his potential.

    But we don’t sell him!
    It really does not make sense.

    Ranger really seems to have some attitude problems but I would rather like to see him loaned out for a year to a Championship club and see if he mature….. and start scoring goals.

    My Info is that Barnetta is not as good as you think mate….Thats from someone Living in Germany and football daft and gives honest neitral opinions on German based players!

    So this signing is not exciting me tbh.
