Newcastle Move To Bring Dutch International In On Loan


There’s a report in the Daily Mirror that Newcastle are after Dutch international winger Eljero Elia on loan.

Dutch International winger Eljero Elia

The 26 times capped Dutch International only joined Juventus from Hamburg last summer, but has only played three times for the Italian club.

Italy doesn’t seem to have suited the winger too much, and we suppose Newcastle are trying to get him on loan with a view to possibly signing him permanently in the summer.

And of course the 5’10” winger could also help Newcastle’s drive to qualify for Europe this season.

The 24 year-old is unhappy at not getting any playing time in Italy, and it seems there is a good chance the loan move will be completed.

The player started his career at Den Haag back in 2004, before moving to FC Twente in the summer of 2007.

He played 59 times for Den Haag with 6 goals and 3 assists and was at Twente for two seasons,  where he played 73 times with 15 goals and 6 assists.

Elia spent two seasons at Hamburg before joining Juventus last summer, and he played for the Bundesliga side 63 times with 8 goals and 11 assists.

Elia made his debut for Holland in September of 2009 against Japan in a friendly match, when he came on at half-time replacing Bayern Munich’s Arjen Robben.

He was named Dutch Football Talent of the Year in 2009.

Eljero Elia could do a job for Newcastle through the end of the season,  if we can get him in.

Here’s hoping.

    Untrue, we don’t do loans, no financial gain whatsoever unless there’s an option to buy at the end.

    Dannyo,
    Any way whats the latest news on the tweeter front,I’m going to abuse that ‘mikeashleyisamackem’next time he pops up for claiming to have a mate in the airport,at least Beattie25 has got a mate in EVERY viable mode of private and public transport keeping an eye out for him.

    Have I missed something?

    We are being linked with Morrison, Zaha and now Elia.

    Have we signed a centre half that I don’t know about?

    Hi guys. I work as an Air Baloon Driver and I’ve just been booked by ‘Richard ‘Dick’ Branson to make a return trip to Italy to pick up 3 men. There names were:

    Mr. Y Benalouane
    Mr. E Elia
    Mr. S Uper-Mario

    Very good player, really can’t see us getting him though, Juventus will want too much for him and we aren’t desperate for another winger so I can’t see Ashley splashing any cash on him

    this isnt true cause elia wud cost 10/12mil after the loan and we dont loan players cause we cant make money of em

    but Elia is a youg(ish) talent who is quick and can dribble has an eye for a pass BUT he does a walcot quite often where he does everything right but cant pass… unless we are selling ben arfa there is no point as ben arfa wont get a game anywhere else but RW
    we already know pardew said CF but he hasnt been good as CF pardew can see that too…

    elia wud take benny’s place on the wing… so cant see it happening

    Not much mate, the names i’ve seen pop up today are:

    – Faouzi Ghoulam
    – Virgil Van Dijk

    Otherwise nothing new really, just rumours.

    Would be a great signing. We signed Ben Arfa on loan so I don’t agree with the statement about us not signing loan players. With him and Cisee we’d have a lot more pace too.

    could happen if a choice of a perement deal at the end because he was bought for £7.5m and he will be “cut price” so maybe £5m which is possible

    This could be true… the financial gain wouldnt be on the player necessarily, but with our league standing at the end of the season.

    Maybe its a trade for HBA then surely the same argument could be applied to his situation

    Anyone watch the classico?

    Funny how Barcelona always try and take the moral high ground, yet Busquets is a terrible terrible human being.

    Fabregas faining injury as well? Absolutely pathetic.

    Lol, i may copy that one from u. Should shut her up for more than 5 seconds 😛

    @JB
    I don’t think a bid or two in the closing hours of the window would go amiss. For both Hoilett and Douglas. Both out of contract in the summer, clubs looking to get paid… Twente is in a poor financial position, and Blackburn is in a poor position overall. Better to do it now than wait and have 20 clubs swarming over them.

    Watford claimed our offer for Mariappa was ridiculous, insulting and way less than they’d ever accept.

    They’ve offered him an improved contract earning him a extra:

    800 quid a week.
    .
    He knocked it back. I’d find that quite insulting as a player.
