Birmingham Back In For Nile Ranger


Sky Sports are reporting that Birmingham are closing in on a deal for Newcastle United’s young striker Nile Ranger.

Nile Ranger – Birmingham back in for him

Cameron Jerome is moving to Stoke City and former Newcastle manager Chris Hughton is trying to sign Nile Ranger as a replacement, since the lad seems to have no future now on Tyneside.

There was news that Blackpool were in talks with the 20 year-old a couple of days ago, with the fee already agreed between Newcastle and Blackpool, and thought to be around £1M.

But Blackpool have apparently switched their attentions to Sheffield United’s Daniel Bogdanovic, so we assume that once again terms could not be agreed with Ranger, who signed a five year deal on Tyneside only last October.

Hughton used Nile Ranger at Newcastle during the promotion season, when he was the Magpies’ manager, and he guided the well, and it could be a good move personally for the Londoner, who seems to have slipped back to his old ways recently.

It’s not the first time that Hughton has been after Ranger, but previously he had tried to get the 20 year-old on loan, but Newcastle would like a permanent deal for the player, who joined Newcastle from Southampton in August of 2008.

We would expect this deal to go through today.

Comments welcome.

    QPR could have Barton and Bellamy in the same team.

    Hope they kill each other!

    We should move for Onouha. Can play CB and RB, is available from Man city who want to get players off teir books. Yes he was on loan at 5under1and but always looked a good player and I’d prefer him at RB over Simmo and he could also help cover at CB when we end up with the nevitable injuries.

    Well, its official, QPR are insane.

    I’d still like to see him loaned out for a couple of years.

    See what he’s like at 22yo.

    He might get his act together, settle down and become a professional.

    He’s very immature, give him time.

    Why do we need another CM?

    Because we just sold Barton. Guthrie and Smith are garbage, and Vuckic is made of glass, so that leaves us with Cabaye, Tiote nd Gosling

    NUFC guide to ruining your team spirit:

    1) Sell your captain (Nolan) – Check!
    2) Sell your personality (Barton) – Check!
    3) Sell your local born star striker (Carroll) – Check!
    4) Sell your only left back (Enrique) – Check!
    5) Sign Balotelli – Check?

    Got to disagree with you on Guthrie.

    He’s a great little player.
    He always does his job and can make some quality passes.
