Pardew Pushes New Contract For Guthrie – New Deal Imminent

We had an article out yesterday which basically said that Danny Guthrie had earned a new contract on Tyneside, because of his excellent play over the last  three games against Blackburn, Stoke and Everton, and that Newcastle should give him it.

Danny Guthrie – new deal soon on the table

Danny’s current four year deal he signed in the summer of 2008, when he arrived form Liverpool for around £2M,  runs out next June.

But there’s good news today that Newcastle’s Managing Director, Derek LLambias, has put together a new contract offer for the 24 year-old, and it will be presented to him imminently.

The Evening Chronicle  is reporting today that Newcastle will offer the central midfielder a new long-term deal, after he stepped in for the injured Cheick Tiote, and has played very well over the last three games.

Danny will likely come back to deputize again for Cheick when he leaves to play in the African Cup of Nations in January, so he’s an important player in the Newcastle squad, that’s for sure.

And it appears that Alan Pardew is behind pushing the Newcastle Board to get the offer ready for the Shrewsbury-born player. who has often shown he can get the job done at Newcastle, when he’s given a run in the side.

Danny did the same thing over the second half of the promotion season, and he showed what a good player he is.

Newcastle want to get Danny signed before the end of the year.  because in January he would be available to talk to other clubs, as he currently will become a free agent next June.

Newcastle do not want their players talking to the press about new contracts, and that seems fair enough, so Danny was just a little cagey when asked about getting a possible new deal today:

“I’m fine at the minute,” “I’m sure the club will sit down and talk about it at some stage, but right now I’m just concentrating on playing.”

Good words from Danny, who as well as being a good player,  is a first class professional.

Newcastle are also  still in negotiations with Fabricio Coloccini on his new deal, and it would be a surprise if a new five year deal for the Argentine International doesn’t get signed in the near future.

And the other deal ongoing is apparently l for Danny Simpson, and we’re really not sure what the deal is there (excuse the pun), but the local press keeps reporting that Danny has been offered a new five year deal at Newcastle, but he has not signed it.

On the other hand Alan Pardew has told the Salford-born player to keep playing well,  and he will likely get a new offer from the club, so those two bits of information don’t seem to completely  jibe.

But Danny Simpson has been playing very good football this season,  and Newcastle should be trying to get the player signed to a long term contract at Newcastle.

We hope that’s the case.

What do you think?

    Seems like he’s a very good squad player,so if he”s happy to be cover for Tiote for the rest of his time here get him signed up.

    Signing that Eric Pieters as cover for Ryan Taylor would be a great asset as well

    What has not gone unnoticed is that Guthrie is playing well above his normal standards. So too Ryan Taylor. Hats off to Alan Pardew.

    Now if he can manage to do that with with Shola………and the ‘lost cause’/’empty headed muppet’ that is Nile ‘gangsta’ Ranger, who knows?

    All said and done, I too would love it if Ranger finally came good under Pardew. Can’t see it happening though. Good news about the Guthrie and Simpson offers though. I rate both of them.

    @ Lynxie: indeed Pardew has done a fantastic job. It was stated a few times here before that he is a very good man manager and I think we all witness that. Raylor, average at best last season, doesn’t give a U21 Italian international a chance because he is doing a fantastic job.

    The players love to play for the club and are all showing it. And we have a few players on the bench who would walk into most of the EPL teams (Mareaux, Ben Arfa, Santon, Guthrie).

    Our current squad is strong, with a few good additions we can become a very good squad. I hope we can get Luuk De Jong he is very highly rated in Holland, but I think Twente will play a hard ball game to let him go.

    Ranger should NOT be given any more chances. He has allready blown away a handfull of them. We don’t need spoilt brats disrupting the brilliant team spirit that flourishes at the moment. Get rid of ASAP, for free, and if no suiters: if possible: sack him for break of contract. Not being able to go to work because of prison time, is probably reason good enough.
