Are You Satisfied With Newcastle Transfer Business So Far?

The poll was published back on July 5th, and if you haven’t voted yet the above poll will show up asking for your vote – and for those who have voted the results will be shown.

The poll shows that 54% of the votes – and one reader had one vote – were satisfied, 33% were not satisfied, and 13% were unsure, which is not surprising since there is still over 7 weeks to go before the transfer window closes.

For the record,  here is the business that has been done so far, and at the time the poll was published last week, and all incoming deals were completed by June 18th.

Newcastle Transfers:

OUT

Sol Campbell – released
Shefki Kuqi – released
Kevin Nolan – £4.5M – West Ham

IN

Yohan Cabaye – £4.5M – Lille
Demba Ba – free agent – West Ham
Sylvain Marveaux – free agent – Rennes
Mehdi Abeid – free agent – Lens

Basically, one way to looks at it is that Newcastle have a net zero transfer fee outlay in the transfer market so far,  and have brought in Yohan Cabaye, Demba Ba, Sylvain Marveaux and 18 year-old Mehdi Abeid.

It’s very clear that Mike Ashley likes a good deal, and every summer we will see some free agents coming to the club.

But we have yet to see a player come to Newcastle this summer for a sizable fee – something approaching double figures – although Newcastle were reported to have bid £10M for top target Kevin Gameiro of Lorient, who ended up at PSG.

It looks like Newcastle have missed out on Turkish striker target Mevlut Erdinc, and it seems that players who could still come in are Neil Taylor of Swansea, and there is an outside chance Newcastle could bring back former winger Charles N’Zogbia.

But Newcastle are not linked with too many players at the moment, although there has been a link with St. Etienne defensive midfielder Blaise Matuidi, but his release clause is set at £14M – which seems a little high.

Players who could still leave Newcastle this summer include Wayne Routledge, who is linked with both top Welsh clubs Swansea and Cardiff today, after being linked with Nottingham Forest last Friday.

Nile Ranger is today linked with Blackpool, and Alan Smith may leave, but his wages (£60K/week), may be a problem for him ending up at Leeds United.

Jose Enrique, who’s part of that long running soap opera could still leave, and there is a chance Newcastle will try to unload Joey Barton this summer too.

If there is any way Newcastle can unload Xisco to his former Spanish club Deportivo – they will jump at the chance – since the lad is still getting an amazing £50K/week from Newcastle.

We’ll leave the poll open – so if you haven’t yet voted – now’s your chance.

Comments very welcome.

    No left-back

    Wenger, meanwhile, revealed that he does no intend to sign a replacement for Gael Clichy – who he sold to Manchester City.

    The Gunners boss says he is happy that he has Kieran Gibbs and Armand Traore, along with Thomas Vermaelen, who could also play there if required.

    “The plan for left back is that we have Kieran Gibbs, Armand Traore and Thomas Vermaelen can play there too. So we have what we need,” said Wenger – who admitted that new signing Carl Jenkinson will be involved with the first team.

    “Jenkinson is an interesting buy. We bought him from Charlton and hopefully he will push Sagna,” he said.

    Undecided – Yes, happy with the guys we’ve brought in, all look good, but I’m very disappointed no new striker has been brought in to partner Ba. I thought this would be high on Pardews list.

    We have to wait for the CL teams to buy their strikers.

    They will then release strikers further down the pecking order that are in our price range.

    Sturridge for example … hint Mr Ashley.

    Unfortunately even if Liverpool or Arsenal don’t sign Enrique this summer I think he’ll see out his contract and leave on a free for a massive wage.

    davybtoon Yer a think 12m combo would get them WOULD we get them is the question cause cant see us signing them good players but still a think we will move for diff types of players and a think we might get a forward in before Friday and a think we will sign Naylor this week and Jose to sign new deal.

    Sky Sports: Your Rumours…

    ” The local radio station have had it confirmed on their football talk in that jermaine defoe come into Newcastle airport this afternoon. Mags will be claiming it is to sign for them but another call came in to say he was now at seaham hall along with n’zogbia. This is the same hotel where vaughn, o’shea and brown have been. 2 have signed today, vaughn tomorrow by all accounts, could this be steve bruces icing on the cake? ”

    Forget about Defoe. Not going to happen. He’s nearly 29 so doesn’t have a sell on value and is on big wages. No way Ashley will sanction a move for him.

    Seeing as it looks like Ranger will be going to Blackpool does anyone think we should do a swap deal with them for DJ Campbell? He could be a decent squad player for us, he’s younger and quicker than Loven.

    He’s available for £1.5m but apparently qpr are close to signing him.
