Brazilian Has Heard Nothing Of Potential Newcastle Move


We haven’t heard much about the proposed Newcastle move for Douglas this week, other than the Tyneside club were supposed to bid around £4M for the big Brazilian center-back last week, if reports are to be believed.

Douglas – has heard nothing from Newcastle

But earlier today, Douglas told Eredivisie Live that his future is still undecided, and he could still stay in Holland for another year, and see out his contract at the Dutch club:

“It’s still not sure that I will stay but I am very happy here and basically I will stay another year.”   “I will focus on FC Twente. Nobody knows anything of Newcastle United.”  I have not heard anything, nor have the club.”

Douglas has said many things in the summer, and some of his quotes include that he definitely wants to move on to a Premier League club, and then this quote is not the first time he’s said he’s thinking of staying at FC Twente until next summer.

But since Douglas has to remain resident in Holland until late August, to meet the FIFA requirements to play for Holland, maybe Newcastle will make their move for the player at that time.

There’s nothing to say that Newcastle cannot sign him now, and then have him move over to Newcastle, after he has seen out his residency requirements in Holland.

Douglas is hoping to be able to play for the full Dutch side soon, and with the residency requirements completed, he will qualify for a Dutch passport and be eligible to play for the National side.

But if  the 6’4″ Brazilian does decide to stay in Holland and see out the final year in his contract, the local papers on Tyneside are suggesting that Newcastle would remain interested in the player,  and could sign him for a small fee in January.

If that isn’t possible,  Newcastle could sign him as a  free agent next summer, if  the club are indeed willing to wait that long to bring in another experienced center-back into the squad.

That would essentially be what Newcastle did last summer with a striker, when nobody seemed available last summer, and they brought in nobody, but they signed Papiss Cisse in January for about £9M, and that has turned out to be a stellar buy  for the club – wuth the emphasis on stellar.

It’s a bit of a mystery what the real status of Douglas’ proposed move to Newcastle really is, but so are all the other potential moves of players linked with Newcastle this summer, including Mathieu Debuchy, Andy Carroll and Vurnon Anita of Ajax.

Surely Newcastle will get a senior player through the door shortly?

    Maybe he’s trying to keep the whole thing quiet as it has some sort of impact on his residency? Clutching at straws here.

    and thus was the end of the blog killer. Reborn as the thread killer. Not quite the same impact, but more factual. And we all love a good fact on here 😉

    786…We certainly do see a few that must’ve taken a good long while to construct. Christ, it can take me 5 minutes to string two sentences together at times. Especially after a drink or two.

    Cheik tiote once entered a black hole just to see what was in it. Dissapointed, he then walked out.

    If we nap Toulalan we wont need any centre backs…tiote alongside toulalan would be a brick wall, add cabayes vicious streak to that as well.

    Not that i can see if getting toulalan, but he is defo the sort of player we could use to bring experience to the team.

    he never wanted him to come anyways, move on,

    everyone calling for anita, or any other centre midfielder, please shut up!

    we have cabaye tiote bigirimana amalfitano gosling vuckic abeid taylor perch, only 2 of which can play so hush we wont be signing another centre midfeilder for any sort of money like the speculated 6-8 million for anita

    I will eat my hat if we sign another centre midfeilder, it makes no sense why we would.

    only 2 more players will come in that is it regardless whether simo stays.

    a top fullback and a quality striker

    colo tayl willo good and perch is enough to cover centre half (noway taylor will get injured so bad again…..right) so douglass can shoe off, dont need him, he doesnt want to come.

    can only predict debuchy and carroll
