Newcastle End Interest In Cisse – Maiga And Ogunjimi Bids Next?


The Daily Mail is reporting that Papiss Demba Cisse’s move to Newcastle has fallen through.

Papiss Demba Cisse – Newcastle end interest?

The chances of Newcastle pulling off this deal were never bright, although they did go in with a reported £10M offer for the Senegal striker on Monday.

The Freiburg club rejected that  £10million offer from Newcastle and boss Alan Pardew seems to have now ended his interest in the top striker.

We suppose Newcastle will now bid again for Sochaux striker Modibo Maiga, although the chances of doing that deal seem equally small, with Sochaux understandably unwilling to sell,  unless they can get a replacement in today.

If Newcastle miss out on these two strikers there was news earlier today that they may bid £5M for Genk and Belgium International striker, 23 year-old Marvin Ogunjimi.

That news was also reported by the Daily Mail, and we’re not sure if there is much truth in the report, but it would appear that Marvin was low down on the totem pole.

If Newcastle’s bids for their striker targets are not successful today, we suppose Newcastle will wrap up a season long loan deal for 20 year-old Italian striker Frederico Macheda from Manchester United.

But Newcastle should really have brought in another  permanent striker during this transfer window to replace the departed Andy Carroll, and that player should have been good enough to wear that famous number 9 Newcastle shirt.

    Anyone think DL is in talks with Honda?

    Honda is meant to be in London for talks with an unnamed club, but his agent has said its not Arsenal

    As I’ve been saying all along, Sochaux will cave in and we will get Maiga.

    Getting a bit twitchy now!! We won’t go down or anything like that if we don’t get a pacy striker but it would just be a massive missed opportunity, with teams like Everton treading water we could easily hit top 8 with 2 more good additions. don’t blow it Mike, this is the best chance you will have to take us forward.

    We got Cabaye, Abied, BA, Marveaux, Obertan, Santon and Elliott for 1/2 of what Liverpoo paid for Carroll – That will cheer us up while we wait for a new number 9… 🙂

    Of all the rumours regarding strikers Cisse was the one I hoped for the most.
    Now would rather see Nolan Roux than Maiga.

    MA had been reluctant to pay out reasonable transfer fees for months now. What makes anyone thing that now–in the closing hours–when fees are inflated above the norm, that he’ll do anything worth squat? Here’s what he’ll do: MA will bring in “someone” who is technically a striker. Pardew will say something like this:

    We have some excellent young players at Newcastle blah blah blah we are perfectly capable of scoring goals blah blah blah and that this last minute 3-5M transfer fee pig is actually quite lovely when you add some lipstick, blah blah blah.

    I’ll get my can opener out…

    Imagine we can go back in tim to the opening of the window before all of the Gervinho and Gameiro rumours…

    Would you pay:

    £10m for an unknown talent that will leave for the ACN and have to more than likely take time to adapt to the PL?

    OR

    Sturridge for £12million…

    All of a sudden, the extra £2 million doesn’t seen such a high price if you ask me…

    N.B. – This deal could have been done before AVB came in and said that Sturridge was part of his plans etc.

    Wonder what has happened to Roux? Not convinced that Macheda will add value to our team. Starting to doubt that we are going to get a striker in. Happy with all our transfer work to date, but a decent striker will be the cherry on top.

    Do people not understand that Sturridge is NOT FOR SALE. Jesus christ, anyone would think he is Henry circa 2002. Sturridge has had half a good season! That is all!

    Do we really need someone to wear #9? This is special shirt, a player must prove his worth first before wearing it.

    Maybe someone bought our £35 million for £10 million as it was in its last year of its contract? Mike took the deal before it went to another club neaxt season on a free???!!!!

    Seriously though, 8 months we have had to get a striker in.

    £7m for Roux & £7m Maiga = £14m – £1m more than they wanted for cisse but 2 brilliant young players.

    RE. NO 9 – NO NEW SIGNING SHOULD GET IT!
