Newcastle are attempting to ship Nile Ranger out on loan before next week’s loan deadline rolls around.
Nile Ranger – Championship clubs interested
It seems that several Championship clubs are interested in the 20 year-old England U19 International, and they could offer to give him first team football.
The powers that be at Newcastle think it’s important that the 20 year-old gets away from the Newcastle area for the rest of the season.
The Newcastle Journal is reporting that Watford and Bristol City have both made enquiries over the last several days, and Blackpool may become interested again.
Blackpool failed to sign Ranger last summer on a permanent deal, after a reported £1M deal has been agreed between the clubs.
Nile’s wages were the stumbling block at that time, but the Seasiders may be back in, since he is being made available by Newcastle, if only on loan.
A source close to Ranger had this to say today:
“There is a good chance of Nile going out on loan before the deadline but it just depends on whether they are willing to take a chance on him now. The next day or so will be important.”
Birmingham City and Chris Hughton had been interested in taking the player, but it seems their interest has now come to an end.
Nile played 58 times with 3 goals for Newcastle, but with three arrests all happening over the last few months in the Newcastle City Center, he has found himself in deep trouble at the Newcastle club.
We expect Nile to be shipped out on loan, but then the bigger question is what happens to Nile Ranger in the summer?
We’d be surprised if he is given another chance at Newcastle.
