Top Newcastle Youngster Still To Sign New Deal


James Tavernier was one of only five Development squad players  who have been offered a new contract, once his current deal expires at the end of this month.

James Tavernier – while on loan at Carlisle United

Nine of the Development squad were released a week or so ago, and the other four who have been offered new contracts are Paul Dummett, Brad Inman, Conor Newton and Michael Richardson – and all have signed their deals.

But James has not yet signed the deal that’s on the table for him, with rumors that Sheffield Wednesday are interested in signing the player.

But James has told the local papers today that he wants to stay on Tyneside:

“I want to stay at Newcastle – it’s obviously a massive club.” “At the moment it’s between the club, myself and my agent but I want to be here. My main aim is to have a really good pre-season and make sure the manager knows that I’m playing well.”

“And hopefully I can keep myself in his thinking for next season, and obviously there’s going to be more games next season with the Europa League and hopefully that means more chances for all of us in the squad.”

“It was great to hear the manager saying those things about you,”   “It gives you so much inspiration when you hear the manager praising you but there is still a lot of hard work to do and I know next season is a very big one for me personally and for the club as a whole.”

Newcastle will be bringing in at least one top full-back over the summer, and that could be a right back, and French International Mathieu Debuchy and Crystal Palace England U21 International Nathaniel Clyne are two who have been mentioned prominently.

In the poll we are running between Debuchy and Clyne, 70% want Debuchy to join Newcastle compared with 25% for Nathaniel, and 5% undecided.

Here’s that poll, and it’s still open if you haven’t yet voted.

Who Would Be The Better Buy Between These Right Backs?

James will be in the first team squad next season, but if he does not get enough games, we wouldn’t be surprised if  Alan Pardew sends the lad out on loan again, maybe even for the season, since he’s still only 20 years old.

We expect James to sign on the dotted line for Newcastle, and he is one of the most promising youngsters on Tyneside at the moment.

James has played twice for the Newcastle first team, and should be able to add to that total next season.

Comments welcome.

    Being trapped in a lift with an unmedicated Bills son is too good for Ashley.

    Tav will sign up, i reckon he just wants to make sure what sort of role he’ll be playing for the club and knowing most agents his agent will probably be trying to bump his wages up another £1000 or so.

    If Tav doesn’t sign though and with Simmo looking destined to leave i would expect we’d go after both Debuchy and Clyne so it wouldn’t be the end of the world if Tav decided to move to a side like Sheffield Wednesday for guaranteed starts.

    Oh yeah who was that muppet on here saying we should try and sign Kagawa as he’ll be cheap. Well he’s just signed for Man Utd for £17M. That’s not exactly a bargain bucket deal is it!

    It would probably make sense to sign Debuchy for the “now” and bring in Clyne for the future. Maybe too much money involved for Toon to do it, but it would certainly add strength to the squad!!

    Why do we need Clyne as well as Debuchy surely we have Tav to bring through the ranks how can we develop him if we have Clyne on the books playing in the cups and Europe unless of course were changing tact and having four players in each slot :0

    JFA i think were bringing in players who can play 2-3 positions and moving players like simmo who can just about manage the 1 position out so clyne can and has played rb/lb/rm and a couple of games at cb although i dont know how that went! And debuchy i think can also play midfield?

    Jail for Ashley,
    Your comments are getting seriously boring now, in fact your one of the reason myself and a few others decided not to come on here too often.

    We wouldn’t have a club now if Sheppard and Hall was still on the board, your either are brain dead or you just have nothing interesting to say either way it’s becoming tiresome reading

    @Supa We would have signed Debuchy by the time you return – by Transfer Sage 😉

    @JFA Tav will most prob be loaned out for the season. Dev squad players can’t match upto quality first team players like Debuchy (Ligue 1 winner infact).

    Clyne is what we all talk nowadays. What happened to Rosales?? or Douglas?

    TADS….i think he means the “….is too good for Ashley” comments.

    Portslade…..Come on now. It is merely a joke and JFA, like most of us, has started to see the light at the end of the Ashley tunnel. There is some serious rubbish written on here, so to pin point JFA’s comments as part of the reason you don’t post anymore is a little bit ridiculous imo.

    Duno what the fuss is over the Rb POSITION were crying out for a LB and were after RB’s we have Santon who’s best position is RB we also have ST JP, RT and Obertan who can play their if needed all we have at LB is right footed players playing LB doesn’t make sense Neil Taylor from Swansea would be my bet for LB slot.

    @davybtoon
    That’s a great post man,very observant.
    I agree that these ads turning 21/22 need to get playin time and if they’re not 2nd choice or even 3rd then they must wonder why they’re at the club.
    Many Pl clubs put their boys in thru the season and the reason Clyne is being looked at is tat he’s been playin 1st team football for a while as thats all the lower league teams have
