It seems to be a three club race for Blackburn winger Junior Hoilett, and although the news is that Borussia Monchengladbach had withdrawn from the race, news today that the Canadian is flying to Germany for talks with the German club.
David “Junior” Hoilett – flying to Germany for talks
We don’t feel too confident that if it’s left to which club offers Hoilett the most, that Newcastle will win this race to sign the impressive young winger come striker.
Certainly QPR, who are the other English club in with a big interest in the player, will likely offer the 22 year-old a big wage to entice him to the club, with manager Mark Hughes desperate to improve the QPR squad, so they don’t fight relegation again this coming season.
If the recent news is to be believed, then Hoilett has already discussed terms with both QPR and Newcastle United, and he previously discussed a move with Burussia Monchengladbach.
There’s no news of what compensation the signing club will be willing to pay to Blackburn Rovers for the 22 year-old, whose contract ran out on July 1st, but since he’s under 24, his club are due compensation.
The amount is usually agreed between the two clubs, but if there’s disagreement it will be sent to an independent arbitration board, who will set the amount.
We think the chances of Newcastle signing the 22 year-old are receding with this news, and the rumors that that QPR say they have already beaten Newcastle in the race for the young Canadian, who was born in Brampton, Ontario.
