Newcastle Want Manchester United’s Darron Gibson


There is news in the Sunday Mirror today, that Newcastle are ­attempting to hijack Darron ­Gibson’s  potential £5M move to local rivals Sunderland.

Darron Gibson – Newcastle and Sunderland interested

But if you believe all the news reports about Newcastle in the transfer market these days, the club must be working 26 hours a day on transfer activity alone.

😀

We’re not sure if this report is accurate, and we wonder if Gibson would even be a good buy for Newcastle – at £5M.

If you are talking about home based central midfield players, we’re be more interested in trying to get 24 year-old Craig Gardner from Birmingham, who Sunderland are also said to be after.

The 23 year Londonderry-born Irish International (he opted not to play for Northern Ireland even though he was born there) has been at Manchester United since 2004 when he was 16, and apparently the lad has been given permission to open personal talks with Sunderland.

A Sunderland offer for the player has been accepted by the Red Devils, so if Newcastle are indeed interested in Darron, then presumably they could match the Sunderland offer, and also be allowed to talk to the player over personal terms.

And that’s exactly what the Sunday Mirror is reporting today – that Newcastle manager Alan Pardew will match ­Sunderland’s offer in the next 48 hours, and then attempt to persuade Gibson to join the most famous and successful North East club – Newcastle United.

During his time at the Red Devils, Gibson has been out on loan at Royal Antwerp in Belgium, and Wolverhampton Wanderers, and could join his former team mate Danny Simpson on Tyneside.

He has played 115 first team games with 12 goals, and of those he has made 58 appearances for Manchester United and scored 10 goals – and Darron has so far played 16 times for Ireland with one goal.

What do you think?

    Not always the case but we should have learned from buying Smith from SAF, he seems to know when to sell and got a good eye when buying too.

    Atleast Gibson isn’t the worst around but would he be happy leaving a bit part for Man U for a bit part with the Toon.

    NuFc TuRnEr, failed on 2 counts 😆

    If we are going to pick a MF for depth, grab Michael Bradley. Could be had for around 2 mil.

    agree with furrygiblets, dont believe this one for a second.

    every time a story comes out they link clubs based on rivalry or fixtures as a way of selling the paper.

    I’m sick of hearing this “he’s better than what we have shite” as well. There is a reason we are trying to offload the likes of Smith and Guthrie. They are crap! What is the point of replacing like for like in terms of quality? We have already seen the bargains we can pick up in the mould of Tiote and Cabaye.

    Off subject. But why can’t we offer Barton a rolling contract? If he’s as good as he says. Where’s the problem?

    Nufcgaz,
    with your contribution of just saying’ I’m here again ‘is as bad as nufc turner going for ‘1st’.

    Gibson isn’t that bad of a player, but only good enough for our bench, so If the fee was low I’d be happy to have him as cover for Barton. Assuming he will still be a NUFC player that is..We need numbers in the team and need to strengthen in every position accept Goalkeepers.
    I expect to see some transfers done this week, since the fat man was back in Newcastle and it seems that he is only up there to do business. Our preseason isn’t too far away and they know they need their first team squad sorted by the time they jetset off to the States. We’ll start to see some of that AC money finally being used on transfers, we got our freebies and still working out Naylors release clause. And since this week was quiet next week we should have atleast 4 new players that have signed on to this project. Fingers crossed!

    I’m with you on that one FloridaToon, but he wouldn’t make the starting team when Cabaye and Tiote are definitely on the team sheet, plus it would be detrimental to Bradleys career sitting on the bench, he needs more games under his belt. But, it’d be nice seeing an American in the team. G Rossi and Gooch Onyewu were only on loan
