Newcastle Striker Target Gets Big New Contract


Well, would you believe it, a Newcastle striker target on the last day of the transfer window, Papiss Demba Cisse,  has just signed a big new deal at his German club,  SC Freiburg.

Papiss Demba Cisse – would be great at Newcastle

But that could be a good move  by the Freiburg club, because in today’s market it almost guarantees they will get the full transfer value of their striker, if he should be sold in January or next summer.

As players run down their deals at clubs, they tend to become cheaper in the transfer market, as they approach the time when their contract runs out and they become free agents.

Papiss had a great season in Germany last season, and hit an impressive 24 goals in only 34 appearances for the German club,

But Freiburg could want up to £12M for the striker, and we think owner Mike Ashley would not be willing to pay that amount, even though we got £35M for big Andy Carroll in January.

Cisse has also made a great start to this season,  scoring 5 goals in just six appearances so far, so since Cisse has been at Freiburg, whom he joined from FC Metz back early last year,  the Senegal striker has hit 35 goals in just  56 appearances for the Bundesliga club – a very good goal scoring record indeed, and in a top league too.

Freiburg Sports Director Dirk Dufner has this to say:

“After many conversations we have found a good solution for both sides.”  “He is now at the top of our structure. For us it was extremely important that he stays with us for another year.”

Cisse is now the club’s top wage earner, but Freiburg have also said that they would be willing to sell Cisse next summer, if they get offers that are close to what they value him at, which is though to be around £12M.

But  of course by then Newcastle may have already signed the striker they need.  Newcastle fans are hoping that Mike Ashley and the powers that be at Newcastle,  will bring in a  striker early in the January transfer window, and way before the deadline hour on January 31st, and that player could be Sochaux’s Modibo Maiga.

Of course,  it’s always much more difficult for a player to produce immediately, when he arrives in January, because the  player does not have the benefit of a pre-season, and sometimes they don’t do well until the following season, and Kevin Nolan is a great example of that.

London clubs Arsenal and Fulham have also been linked with the 26-year-old, and of course Sunderland, but that’s only because Newcastle are linked with the striker.

😀

There’s little doubt this player would be a great signing for Newcastle United, but of course whether we can get him and whether Mike Ashley will pay the required fee for him is very debatable right now.

    i think we will depond on Best and Ba for the rest of the season.
    They may not be the number 9 striker, that we want, but they can get us the goals we need.
    On the other hand, we lack in defence, and i my guess is that that is the area we are looking to strengthen firstly.
    one LB to fight for the spot with Santon, two back up CB´s and one RB, to put Simpson as back up.
    IMO

    no, i am not expecting 4 defenders to come in.
    But it is obvious for everybody, that that is where we lack!
    Pardew knows it.. MA an DL knows it.
    We will be getting 1 or 2 defenders in january…
    I am 100% on that.
    Regarding the striker area.. If Best has knocked in 6-7 goals, and Ba the same, we will not be looking for another striker.
    And.. Why should we? I was disapointed as many others not getting a striker in, but to be honest, the two top strikers we have in our hierarki, are not so bad IMO.
    With Ben Arfa back, they will get more chances, and the goals will come.
    But if we get injuries in the back four, we are in trouble. At least 2 defenders in january.. hopefully 4

    darlo…
    1 goal in 4 games.. ? i know, but if we had not been lucky, that number would have been 5 or 6!

    I for one think that S.Taylor and Colo is one of the best CB pairs in the league, but if one of them gets injured, we have to put Perch in…
    As i wrote before.. We need back ups for CB, not better CB´s, than the pair we have already

    Fella I think we will be lucky to get in 1 CB, won’t get a RB got Perch Simmo Raylor Tav. And we got our LB in Santon and Raylor and in fairness of Colo and Saylor stay fit we won’t get another CB

    Am not arguing Danish, dont get me wrong we really do need some depth in defence and attack…. I really do believe that Cashley is now beginning to feel the heat off the masses turning against him, like lambiase said if he is getting threatened by the fans then his drive to re- invest has gone, that can explain why his net spen over the last year or so has been + 30 odd mil. profit may i add

    In previous seasons we have never had luck on our side, which is one of the assets we have this season, which can explain our high league position.

    I for one will continue to support Pardew and the team but i now view Pardew and the team as a seperate entity to the owners…. there is a large rift that needs to be filled and if lambsarse thinks a simple 300 word appearance to the fans can bridge that gap then he needs to go back to uni and get some management education…

    darlo…
    I have been a fan of Pardew for a long time.
    He came to the club facing some big names, and he soon let all of them know he was the boss.
    In the recent summer, he let Nolan, Enrique and Barton go, which did hurt. But it was for the best, i think.
    Nolan Would not fit the new type of game Pardew wants to play. He would have been benched.
    Enrique did not want to stay, well then fuck off.
    Barton has a big mouth, but what a player, and what a character.. I do miss him, he is a big loss.
    I think that Pardew feels the same about him.
    I have had my doubts about MA and DL, and still do..
    The biggest problem they have, is the lack of comunicating.
    The way they run the club otherwise is.. i dont know.. mayby not to daft. Financialy it looks very very good, and the youngsters are looking better and better.
    If the right number 9 is available at the right time, he will come in.. None of the strikers we were linked with this summer, were number 9 candidates IMO.
    The money is there, and will go for the right player.
    I only wondered about one player.. Pieters.. Why did he not come in? The price was good, the wages was sane, his age was perfect and his abilities are superb. Mayby in january.. I dont know

    Thanks you for the link

    thai…
    I have been thinking of going to Thailand, and in a couple of years, when our youngest is 4 years old, we might will.
    Went to Goa in India before we had children (7 years ago), and we loved it. Others down there said that Thailand is better, so eventually we will go to see the beauty of Thailand.

    Also I think Agbonlahor will likely be playing out wide, he seems to do it these days. I think they will play a 451 but with Zog and Gabby pushing uptop.
