We think there could still be lots of transfer activity involving Newcastle United before September 1st rolls around.
Jonas Gutierrez – Stoke interested?
Stoke City are after Joey Barton and news in the Daily Mail today that Russian club, Zenit St Petersburg, are ready to make Barton a £68K/week offer to join them.
So it could well be that Joey will leave Newcastle, and if he’s not willing to row the boat in the same direction as Alan Pardew and the rest of the Newcastle players, that’s exactly what he should do.
News today that Liverpool have tied up a deal at £5.5M for Jose Enrique, but you cannot trust these reports, because they’ve been like this for months and months about Jose. We’ll wait and see if this is the real deal.
Newcastle are after Dutch defender Erik Pieters and the deal could be completed soon, and it seems Newcastle will buy him independent of the status of Jose Enrique.
And with Newcastle having so many new wingers in Marveaux, Obertan, Gosling, Ben Arfa and young Sammy Ameobi, Newcastle may want to sell Jonas Gutierrez to get his high wages off the Magpies’ wage bill.
And there is news today that Stoke City may be interested in Jonas, but we don’t know if there is any truth in this news.
News today that Newcastle are back in for Eren Derdiyok, the 23 year-old Bayer Leverkusen striker, so things could get very busy on the transfer front, in these last 20 days of the window for Newcastle.
But it could also be that Newcastle lose Joey Barton, Jose Enrique and Jonas Gutierrez before September 1st rolls around, and they have been three very good players for the Magpies over the last couple of seasons.
What do you think about this?
