Krul And Cabaye To Get New Contracts At Newcatsle


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.

    dont know why people are having perch in their team for today, we were awful at blackburn, 1st and 2nd half, only reason we won was because blackburn were absolutely awful at finishing their chances off, worst we have played, my opinion of pardew will go up further if he plays Ba and Cisse from the start, but he wont.

    You can sing that.
    But there’s more chance of hell freezing over. Why on earth are you keep harping on about this? Ba would be crazy to sign with us when he can get a massive salary at a bigger club, surely? Ba is great, but he’s not daft.

    I’d like to know where all the extra money is coming from to offer better lucratuve offers to all these players that we didn’t have in the first place???

    Surely if we want to better the offers to Ba & Cabaye to put them inline with Tiote etc, then obviously we had the money there in the first place 🙁

    Is this the club holding on to players or making sure they get top dollar in the summer?

    i LOVE what Ashley’s doing with the contracts. new players dont get big salaries immediately, so they dont come here just for the money, like in old times, and if they come good, they get improved deals.

    us mere fans can never truly know ‘what Ashley’s doing’ since he has chosen to practice a regime of opacity however, it is fair to say that something isn’t right if we can’t tie up our captain and most important player on a new contract

    well yes, you’re right, but we don’t know what’s the problem with Collo’s deal, and I’m pretty hopeful we can tie him up as well

    If as you suggest Ashley is offering our top performers improved deals then I can’t see why he won’t sign. An improved deal in Ashley’s eyes probably differs to an improved deal in ours or indeed our players

    hdavid23 // Feb 5, 2012 at 11:31 AM – i LOVE what Ashley’s doing with the contracts. new players dont get big salaries immediately, so they dont come here just for the money, like in old times, and if they come good, they get improved deals.

    That is exactly the way to run a club and is part of Ashley’s strategy. It is a fact that many new players fail to justify their transfer fee and the more you pay for a player the greater that risk becomes. Torres £50M and Carroll £35M are prime examples. The bigger the fee you pay for a player the greater the wages – that increases the risk still further.

    This is exactly what happened with players like Guivarch, Luque, Owen, Martins, Smith, Boumsong, Xisco etc.,(I bet you could name 15/20 of these over the last 10 years) and the reason why we were near bankruptcy before Ashley bought the club. Far better to buy hungry talented players who will come for lower wages and THEN give them an improved contract when they prove themselves. Tiote is a prime example of that. Within 6 montjhs his money went from c£25K a week to £55K.

    Another part of the strategy is that finding gems like Tiote, Cabaye, Santon and HBA for less than £5M each means that their is plenty in the coffers to give these players wage rises and new contracts.

    In the past businessmen who have owned football clubs have been, rightly, accused of losing all business sense as soon as they walk through the clubs gates. There is no fear of that with Ashley in charge. At last NUFC have an owner with a plan and strategy for the club from top to bottom and the determination to see it through – no matter what the criticism from short sighted fans and the hyper critical headline seeking press.

    Is Ashley’s plan working? Look at the Prem table and the talent in our squad for the answer. It’s a no brainer in my opinion.

    And before the likes of solano jump on the bandwagon – I know that Xisco and Boumsong were signed with Ashley as owner. These two signings were a big learning curve for Ashley and made him dictate transfer policy rather than listening to so called ‘experts’ like Allardyce and Wise.

    Two things – until Collo publically says he isn’t signing a new contract any comment about him ‘not signing’ is irrelevant. Secondly,are you saying we should just pay whatever a players asks? That will never happen under Ashley – and dead right.

    Every player has his price whether its a price to buy him or a wage to keep him. Knowing your limits, sticking to them and saying NO DEAL if the other party doesn’t accept is the mark of a good businesman, not a bad one. If players and their agents think a club is a soft touch over wages it will cause more disruption than the ciurrent policy.
