Guthrie To Get New Contact – Pardew To Meet With His Agent


The People is reporting today that Danny Guthrie will be given a chance to stay on Tyneside.

Danny Guthrie – Pardew to met with his agent this week

Danny’s four year contract he  signed when he came for  about £2.5M from Liverpool in the summer of 2012,  runs out this June, and it would appear that Newcastle will offer him a new deal.

Alan Pardew has been impressed with the midfielder who came in for Cheick  Tiote for six games last year and played really well, and so much so that the Ivorian was hardly missed.

This is what manager Pardew said about Guthrie:

“When Cheick Tiote came out of the team injured and Danny came in it was seamless.”

“That says it all about Danny Guthrie. Hopefully he can continue that if he gets an opportunity on Sunday.”

“I’m sitting down with his agent this week and we’ll have a cup of tea and see where we are.”

That’s strange that Alan is meeting with Danny’s agent, because the contracts are the work of people like Derek Llambias, and usually the manager these days doesn’t get involved in the financial details of contracts or transfer fees.

We expect Danny to return to the side this afternoon in place of young Mehdi Abeid, who stood in for Cheick Tiote last Saturday in the 2-1 FA Cup win against Blackburn.

Of course a new contract will depend on just how much Guthrie is looking for,  with the wages being paid out at Newcastle these days less than they were when Freddy Shepherd was running the club, and spending money the club didn’t have.

But Danny definitely wants to stay on Tyneside,  as he said only last week that there were only good things  happening at Newcastle.

We hope he’s right on that one – starting with a win against QPR this afternoon – which would take Newcastle up into 6th place in the league table, and above Liverpool in the table.

That would be great.

    Deserves a contract,vital squad player who would be 1st choice at a number of PL teams. Hope he starts today,good combination with Cabaye especially when they start zipping pinpoint diagonals across the pitch.

    Obviously our resources are stretched regarding new signings. Pardew will probably do just what he says he’ll do. Have a sitdown and see where they are at.
    He’ll bring the info back and they’ll negotiate after the window.

    Great news, have been hoping for a little more haste on this front.

    To the match today. Possible QPR line-up:

    KENNY

    YOUNG FERDINAND HALL HILL

    SWP DERRY BUZSAKY MACKIE

    MACHEDA HELGUSON

    SUBS:

    CERNY
    GABBIDON
    CONNOLLY
    SMITH
    ANDRADE
    CAMPBELL
    BOTHROYD

    That’s a Championship standard team, but we have to burst out the blocks like against Man U. That match should be our benchmark.

    guthrie has always been a good servant. he will play anywhere hes asked. i like the lad hes neat and tidy, keeps it simple and has an eye for goal or a killer pass. i hope we can keep him. my only worry is he deserves first team football and he has the ability to do it for a good team. will he be happy to play from the bench for us. at this stage in his career he needs 1st team football. if he leaves i will be sad for us but happy for him

    Lets hope Danny’s agent does not get too carried away and takes plenty of biscuits, because this ‘cup of tea’ might last a long while, knowing the way our contract renewal talks have gone so far…………….

    kids i was joking about barton and carroll.
    there is no way i would have barton back at our club. he engineered a move away and didnt have the bottle to ask 4 transfer. he dragged our club through the crap to get a pay rise and still continued to do it when he was away.
    he loved the toon army but treat us like crap to get what he wanted. i would not go back to sjp if he returned

    Guthrie deserves a new contract.
    He’s a fantastic passer.

    I hope he’s offered a deal he can sign …
    Still no news of Simmo & Colo signing.

    Ameobi & Jonas are the only players who have signed a new contract. All the rest have stalled and moved on.

    Lol, couldn’t resist trying.

    Actually think it could be difficult today. AP tends to plan his tactics and selection based on what he knows for sure about his opponents. With the core if the QPR team absent, and a new manager in place, they’re something of an unknown quantity.

    Pards will almost certainly stick to the same formation, and the most obvious players in that formation. This means Hughes will have a fairly good idea how we’re going to play and will respond according to how predictable we’re gonna be.

    Basically what I’m saying is that it’ll be a close game; we’ve got to hit them hard and hopefully score early to get them on the back foot. Fingers crossed for a win, but it’s tough to call.

    pardew said everything to do with transfer will be done in house to keep position in negotiations, so there is no way lee ryder or any other english journos know whats happening at the club, the only way a story may break is if it comes from the other side e.g cissokho and the french media

    Guthrie is the absolute boy man, it’s absolute hilarious that last season when he didn’t get a chance at all, everyone was slacking him off… now everyone’s licking his loop clean out. I’ve always been a huge fan of wor Guffaz, so much so, I’ve had him on the back of my last two toon tops! Technically he’s as good as anyone on the ball, maybe not Messi, but you get what I’m saying, and his rage of passing is second to non, get him signed up asap!
