Newcastle Keeping Tabs On Burnley Right Back?


Newcastle were linked back in April with Burnely’s England U21 right-back Kieran Trippier, but with the £7M sale of their striker Jay Rodriguez to Southampton a few weeks ago, Burnley are now in decent financial state, and will not need to sell any more players this summer.

Kieran Trippier –  Newcastle keeping tabs on this youngster

Newcastle are interested in a number of young players in England, including Nathaniel Clyne, who is also an England U21 right-back at Crystal Palace.

French international full back Mathieu Debuchy is now Newcastle’s number one target, and we just hope Newcastle can get him to Tyneside, and that the fee his French club Lille wants, is not too high.

Kieran is a player Newcastle have kept tabs on last season,  and he started his career at the once famous Manchester City Youth Academy, which has been in decline since Sheikh Mansour bought the club in August of 2008, and basically brought in a couple of teams for around £800M for players.

Trippier joined Burnley on loan last year, after being out on loan at Barnsley since February of 2010, and he made the move to Burnley permanent last summer.

He never played for the Manchester City first team, but made 44 appearances with two goals for Barnsley, and has made 50 appearances for Burnley with four goals.

Kieran has played for all the England Youth teams from the U18 level, and has two appearances for the England U21 side.

He looks a decent player and is on the Newcastle full-back list somewhere, but probably not near the top of the transfer targets, at least for the moment.

    Perfect… after we failed with our top targets now it’s time for the replacements. With a week to start the pre-season we bought only one player for League 2 in France… at a boy.

    We still have a couple months til the season starts.

    Clubs dont sell top players early as they need to find replacements first and want to get as much as possible for their players.

    There is no need to worry, we all thought nothing was happening in January then all of a sudden cisse was here.

    Plenty time yet and all these stories are unsubstantiated claims by journos trying to flog their poorly written papers.

    Also people want movement right away. It has advantages but also disadvantages.

    We could spend 12/15 on de jong, spend the majority of the budget then find a few other top targets become available.

    Just let the club worry about signings and we can enjoy the football.

    Don’t know why people think the likes of lovenkrands and Guthrie etc will be replaced with new first team players. The likes of gosling,vukic,abeid and Sammy will replace them and most of our new players will be youngsters to back up the first team

    It’s vital for the new players to be with the team at the start ot pre-season. Otherwise they must be adapt to our style of play during the season which is not good at all. I just want the main busines to be finalized before the start of pre-season which means a week.

    Sorry spitfire. I agree with rich. Other targets may become available.

    I understand where ya coming from with getting new players in and settled but that is looking at short term. Would you rather get a mediocre player now and get him settled or wait till the end of the window and get a top player that might take a few games to bed in? Long term……… I would rather wait. Would be more beneficial to our club.

    Remember spit fire we have a good starting 11 already and a bench which is ok and familiar with the team and system we use.

    So if new players come in late they can still be introduced slowly. There will also be one or two that will just fit in right away and wont need much time. Like cisse did.

    I don’t want to buy mediocre players neither and thats why I was a little bit sarcastic in my first post for the replacements bcoz the replacements of our prime targets means exactly that they are not good as the players on top on the wish list… they looks like some compromise version.

    Cisse was fast introdused in first team because Pardew didn’t have a option… Remember what happend with Santon? He came in the last weeks of august and first months he was on the bench… to adapt english style of play but this happend because we have a options for LB and RB. If wasn’t Best injured Cisse will have to wait a few weeks.

    rich – our bench is very poor IMO, and that is the reason we fell short last season, our starting 11 can hold their own with most, but we have nobody to come on and change a game, we seem to be able to bring Perch, Shola etc on to see out a game in which we’re leading, but when we’re behind who do we have that can change it?? we only got like 3 points or something last season when we conceded first

    I don’t know who the hell is our #1 target anymore for any position. Everything is just media speculation as always or agents trying to push through a deal.
