Newcastle are in negotiations right now with Fab Coloccini’s agent, on a new long term deal for the Newcastle captain.
Tim Krul – could get new improved deal on Tyenside
And there will also be new deals offered to Danny Guthrie and Danny Simpson, and as we reported earlier today, for Demba Ba too.
Guthrie’s contract runs out in the summer and Simpson’s deal runs out in eighteen months time, and Demba Ba’s contract has that release clause in it, which Newcastle would like to eliminate.
Newcastle would also like to give the Senegal striker a better deal at the club, and that follows Ba’s wonderful scoring form for Newcastle, which has seen him knock 15 goals in so far in the Premier League this season.
And the report in the Sunday Sun today is that both Tim Krul and Yohan Cabaye, two top players for Newcastle this season, will also be offered new and improved deals.
With their good form, there have been rumors that other clubs are interested in the players, so new improved long terms contracts will do a couple of things.
One is to keep them happy at Newcastle by rewarding them with better wages, which they have earned, and the second is that if clubs do come after them in the summer, they will need to offer big bucks to prise them away from Newcastle.
Alan Pardew had this to say today:
“We have a squad doing very well and one or two players are coming to the end of their contracts and I think those we need to address.”
“If there are players who have done exceptionally well and have to be realigned if you like, that might need to wait until the summer.”
Players like Ryan Taylor may be offered new deals too, since we need top squad players like Ryan to stay at Newcastle.
Ryan and Danny Guthrie and James Perch recently, have all shown they can get the job done when they come into the first team, and they are important players for the club.
And from what Taylor, the 27 year-old Liverpudlian said yesterday, that would suit him perfectly.
Ryan was interviewed and said he was very happy on Tyneside, with his new baby boy changing his perspective on things, and he would love to sign a new deal at the club and stay on Tyneside.
This is some of what Ryan said yesterday:
“My patience has paid off this season,” “I have 18 months left here and I would love to stay here.”
“But I will just keep my head down, get on with things and who knows?”
Sign him up.
