Newcastle Striker Could Be On His way


The loan window will open tomorrow and it seems that Nile Ranger will be a player targeted by a number of clubs.

Nile Ranger – in action at Aston Villa

Newcastle have said they would prefer to sell the player, and the asking price is said to be £1.5M for the 20 year-old, which seems to have put off a number of clubs.

The Tyneside club have said they will only loan the player out with a view to him leaving permanently, so we suppose that means if he is sent out on loan, there will be a clause in the loan contract that the club he goes to can then buy him in the summer for a stated fee.

But they don’t have to pick up that option, so we’re not sure what it really means, other than it’s clear Newcastle would have preferred Nile to  leave the club permanently.

Nile seems to have missed his chance at Newcastle, and it’s clear Alan Pardew has now given up on him, because of his lack of professionalism, and the fact he has started to get himself into trouble off the field again.

But former manager Chris Hughton, now at Birmingham, seems the favorite to land the England U19 and U20 International, and of course he was the manager who brought Nile through at Newcastle during the promotion season, and gave the lad his big chance.

The Newcastle striker was in talks over a move to St Andrews this summer, but Birmingham and Newcastle could not agree on a deal because the Midlands club wanted a loan deal only, and Newcastle wanted to sell.

Birmingham lost Cameron Jerome to Stoke last Wednesday, and we think it’s very possible that Ranger will be sent out on a season long loan deal to Birmingham.

There was news over the last few days that Leeds United were interested in Ranger, but manager Simon Grayson said that was simply not true, and they were not even in the market for a striker, after they had brought in striker Andy Keogh a few weeks before.

Somebody must have just made up the story we suppose – that’s unusual.

We don’t expect any other Newcastle players to leave on loan, but you never can tell, and some of our youngsters may be sent out on short term deals, to get first team playing time.

Comments welcome.

    Nope toon army, prem teams cant loan players, we can only loan them out to other clubs.

    Only way we could sign someone would be to get a free agent, and theres always a good reason a player has been made a free agent, and its usually coz they’re sh1te lol.

    I’d be massively p1ssed off if we signed Diouf, he is without doubt the biggest prick in professional football like.

    if pardew was indeed at swiss match to watch derdiyuk that surely means we have changed our target again as we were after pappis cisse and modibo maiga both of which are willing to come so if we do not sign one of them it means one thing and one thing only we wont pay for them tight c.u.n.t.s.

    Ranger’s stupidity, immaturity, “gangsta”-mentality will always be there. He’s too DUMB to see where its all heading.
    Everything is laid out for him.
    He should be thankful, and knuckle down and be a success.
    Instead he’s a complete turd and a liability who isn’t learning.
    Get rid of the tosser.

    @ joppadoni no you are wrong a player can go down divisions on loan but not to a prem league team its a rule thats designed to protect the intrests of lower league teams.

    When you think of how Shola and Sammy’s mam and dad have been praised by Pardew and others – you wonder whats happened to Ranger’s. Are they so bad he’s turned out the creep he is ? Or did they do their bit and give up because he’s such a knobend ?

    Nope, prem teams cannot loan players now, thats why sunderland had to rush through the bendtner deal on deadline day.

    Prem clubs can only sign free agents until January.

    Only championship and lower teams can loan players now.

    I always thought Ranger has the potential to be better than Carol, however he does not have an organ between his ears that allows him ti think.
    Maybe it would be cheaper to arrange an organ implant allowing him to grow up and think, rather than buy someone; after all there must be loads of experts in transplanting thinking organs into maccums that want to emigrate north of the Tyne.
