Newcastle Linked With Danish International Defender


News in the Daily Mail today that Newcastle are lining up a move for the exciting young Ajax left back Nicolai Boilesen.

Nicolai Boilesen – Danish International left back

This lad stands 6’1″ tall and has played for all the Danish youth sides, from U16 through U21,  and has two full caps too, getting his first cap just last year.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea were interested in the youngster back  in 2009, that’s when Newcastle were being relegated,  and he is  known as a top young player coming through the ranks and he turned 20 in February.

He started his career at Danish club Brøndby IF in 2004, when he was 12, which is situated on the outskirts of Copenhagen, and in January of 2010 he joined Ajax.

Daniel Agger, the Liverpool defender is the role model of Nicolai, and the lad is a left footed central defender or full back.

The Danish International tore his right hamstring back in September, putting him out for five months, and he has only appeared 6 times for Ajax, and 13 times in total.

There was big news that Newcastle boss Alan Pardew went to watch Ajax play De Graafschap last month, but Boilesen was ruled out for the rest of the season with hamstring problems and didn’t play.

Newcastle will need to make sure the lads recovers fully from his hamstring problems, but the news is they are willing to pay out £5M for his services, but that figure seems a bit high to us.

We expect some surprises from Newcastle this summer in the transfer market, and though we know that Alan  Pardew has been at a number of Ajax games and we thought he was after Jan Verthonghen, maybe it’s the 20 year-old Newcastle have been interested in.

Nicolai Boilesen fits right into the profile of young players Newcastle are looking to acquire, and he’s much like young Italian Davide Santon – a top young player who will only get better at Newcastle playing in the Premier League.

Sounds good to us.

    In an ideal world, we get rid of Xisco, Smith etc. and we complement them with players challenging for 1st team football, like this guy. But, we’ll have to be really tough in resisting approaches for our current stars… That won’t be easy. Teams like Real Madrid (see previous article, dismissed lightly by many bloggers) get their man. Just hope he’s not in their scopes.

    Cyprus, Xisco isn’t going anywhere unfortunately. On too much money.

    Talking of Cisse – Ba, I hope that they use this summer to become a deadly duo – together. Even though their sum of goals, – 30 at season’s end :), is great, too often their communication hasn’t been quite there, with the player running one way, the pass the other. Hence some people claiming it’s one or the other. I disagree. If they manage to get an understanding, with their talent, they’ll become the deadliest in the league, with 50 a season…

    Shouldn’t we play Xisco, may be he can prove himself instead getting paid for doing nothing?

    On Xisco,
    he never got a real chance, agree with both comments. There must have been something there for us to pay such crazy money, even if he got mixed up with the Keegan saga. And he certainly ain’t going anywhere. But can he make it ahead of Ba, Cisse, even Best – and Ranger?

    i think the best the plan with xisco is to put him up on a free as we did with barton, and just hope someone takes him, writing off the transfer fee [send the bill to wise]

    I’m confident that Boilesen is going to be an awesome awesome left back in just a few years! I been very impressed with his performances for the national team! This would be an immense signing, he will obviously need some time, but not that much. He’s an honest hardworking young man with bags of talent – but he’s a left back, will never be a CB in PrL. 5 mil is really a bargain!

    Yip, free transfer for xisco most likely way to off load the sponger. maybe instead of hoilett we should give the forgotten man at spuds a new lease of life i’m on about gio do santos. he’ll be cheap, he’s young still and he can play upfont or on the wing.

    On xisco
    Wasn’t there a story about Denis Unwise appeasing some agent by buying this lame duck?
    Wasn’t that one of the reasons Keegan walked?
    Ashley, I think, certainly learned from that mistake.
    Trouble is he will be hard to offload. Perhaps a free transfer to the Heed?

    @19 yes you are right this whole sorry Xisco saga was the reason KK walked,Ashley was a bit green in the transfer game & he had just brought Wise in as Director of Football at Toon & this was his deal the whole affair was a bit fishy from the start,buying players without the knowledge of the Manager was a no brainer,I actually think Wise had,nt even watched this guy play.i think he might of even pocketed a few thou himself.

    A player i would love to see us buy is Munain of Ath Bilbao looks similar to Paul Scholes good passer, strong shot & fast, might be out of our price range but would really love him at Toon
