Pieters In PSV Squad For Europa Cup Tie Tomorrow Evening


Newcastle left-back target Erik Pieters will be on PSV Eindhoven’s flight to Austria for their Europa League clash with SV Ried tomorrow night.

Erik Pieters – in PSV squad for tomorrow’s game

As we reported earlier today it seems the £6M transfer fee is holding up the move for Pieters, and Mike Ashley seems to be balking at the fee, and why that’s the case we have no idea.

The facts seem to be consistent that Pieters wants £30K/week in wages, which seemingly Newcastle are willing to pay, and PSV want £6M for their Dutch International defender, and Newcastle are not willing to pay that.

PSV Communications Manager Pedro Salazar Hewitt has told the Lee Ryder, of the Newcastle Evening Chronicle today:

“He is traveling with us to Austria.” “If nothing else happens he will be in the squad on Thursday night.”

If Erik plays on Thursday night,  even if he’s signed by Newcastle before the game at Sunderland at noon on Saturday, he will not play for the Magpies.

Newcastle had put a priority on getting a new left-back signed quickly, as Newcastle lost their third very good player this year only last Friday, when Jose Enrique finally got the move to Liverpool, ha has since said he craved.

Newcastle will have to sign Pieters by noon on Friday to be eligible for the Sunderland game, but if he plays for PSV on Thursday evening, he will not play against Sunderland.

Newcastle had an excellent chance of bringing in a very good replacement for Enrique, in the 10 times capped Dutch International, but the move seems to have hit a road block.

Ryan Taylor, James Perch and the fit again, Shane Ferguson, are all  now available to play left back against the old enemy Sunderland on Saturday, and we’d prefer young Ferguson to get the nod, if he’s fit enough.

We would just love it if Newcastle can still get Erik Pieters and Souchaux striker Modibo Maiga through the door before the end of the transfer window – just love it!

We think they would be two terrific buys for the Magpies.

Comments welcome.

    I officially hate Chris Waddle – What a Tw@t. His commentary on ESPN was so negative towards NUFC.

    @15 – Waddle is a tw@t and go back to whatever post-1990 rock he climbed out from. He is misinformed and his opinions is no longer valid as he did the same in the early years.

    For christ sake people, get a grip!

    Besides this blog, I haven’t seen any site that says the transfer is delayed due to the transfer fee. There have been no sources anywhere and the mail have only assumed we would go for Bridge if the Pieters deal falls through.

    We are never informed of what is happening in terms of transfers, that doesn’t mean something isn’t happening. Transfers don’t get sorted out over night!

    im gettin the hump with all this. I dont understand why MA is dragging his feet. We been a joke with the way weve dealt with transfers this summer. He seems to wanna make deals for players like were buying bulk dunlop t-shirts from china. Needs to understand these things need to be done quickly. AHHHH!!!

    I find it hard to put any blame on Pardew at all. He is a yes man and that’s just the way it is. He does what he is told to stay in a job that was ONCE regarded as one of the biggest and best jobs in the EPL. Its Ashley’s way or the highway its as simple as that. Like another poster said, there will be no more signings for the club this summer its as simple as that. Ashley has a problem and that problem is greed. He is obsessed by money and does not like to spend it. Somebody needs to tell him its no good being the richest bloke in the grave yard. He likes to make money not spend it. Owning a Football club is totally wrong for Ashley.

    I think here is what it is:

    We got 3.5m for Enrique with yearly payments and a sell-on clause and the £7m PSV always valued him at is now all of a sudden a little bit higher say same price a Cissokho £8m – so now I think its like AP get that Pieters price down or get someone else. Full stop. Plus get that Poor-mans Gangster Ranger out of here!!!

    Of course Pieters is in the squad, he is their best left back, why would they leave him out ‘just in case’ we decide to proceed?!
