Newcastle Transfer Target To Decide Future This Week

Newcastle target Andreas Wiemann of Aston Villa will be deciding his future this week, as his agents fly in to discuss terms  on a new contract  with Aston Villa on Tuesday.

Andreas Wiemann – agents meet with Villa this week

The 21 year-old had an excellent season and scored 12 goals in 38 games for Villa, as they just managed to beat the drop, and finally finished just above  Newcastle on  41 points, but with a better difference.

Andreas joined Aston Villa as a 17 year-old from home town club Rapid Wien,  and has worked his way through the ranks to become a starter for Villa, and he has so far played 79 times for Villa with 19 goals and 5 times for Austria.

Newcastle have been interested in the striker since January, and will be waiting to see if the lad extends his contract this week, and it has just one year to run.

Norwich City are also said to be waiting on the wings, and Sunderland too, as the 21 year-old forward has already turned down one offer to increase his wages from his current £15K/week.

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert wants to keep the youngster at the club, and he’s made that clear to the Villa Board, and after pulling Villa through a difficult season as manager, we have to think the Villa Board will now back their young manager and give the Austrian a decent contract.

But that would not be good news for Newcastle, who are watching developments and ready to step in to bring the lad to Tyneside, if talks again falter.

Here’s a chance to vote for Player of the Season, if you haven’t already done so.

    I’d still like mainly players from the prem league this summer.

    Not past it has beens or bit part players but 2/3 solid prem league players who have shown they can do it over the past year or two. (or at least played a few games)

    Weinmann would be good, benteke, remy (pending charge and/or verdict), samba, skrtel, townsend, danny rose, etc

    @GFN_France: TF1: Rubin Kazan have made a €15m offer for Pierre Emerick Aubameyang. #ASSE #Kazan

    @GFN_France: TF1: Newcastle, Inter Milan, PSG and Dortmund have all registered their interest in Pierre Emerick Aubameyang as well. #ASSE

    For me samba would be no where near that list, was shocking for QPR, 2 teams captained to relegation and a pure mercenary

    Ok so prem players??
    Long, benteke remy Williams McCarthy Townsend Allen (ready to sell Apparantly knows how to play the passing game) and Moses/Sinclair

    As exciting as Aubameyang is, I would rather have a go at Bony. His goals-to-game ratio is very good, and he seems to have excellent positioning and finishing skills. I would, however, have him and Cissè compete for the same position, as I don’t want to see us try a duo up front. We need a player just of the striker or behind.

    Nkoulou is also a Monaco’s target, so…


    Why not… Could bring a solution on the right, but it would be toatly useless to recruit such a player without tremendous change in the way we play.

    He’s Marveaux’s kind (in less gifted if you ask me), and Marv do not seem to be a valuable player in Pardew’s eyes.

    Is it 10 millions for him as a whole or 10 millions for each of his thigh?

    If the Russians are after Aubameyang then we can forget about him so the powers that be need to move asap to secure another striker before all the decent ones get snapped up. you would have thought after last summer`s mistake that we would be on this like lightening to get a deal done.
    Mind you Llambias hasnt come out with his list of excuses yet Agents fees player wages spent a lot already in January we have Shola etc etc .
    Would be great if I had to admit I was wrong and eat my own words.

    Yes, according to Cadena SER (and they are rarely wrong), it s done for falcao.
    Same for Valdes…

    everybody in France is stuned by the way they spend money.

    There’s a controversy about that, but not about financial fair play.

    THe argument is about the (huge) difference of taxe rate between France and Monaco. It’s not really fair for the others french clubs.

    But sure, for the Ligue 1 as a whole, it’s pretty good.

    Yeah they kind of seem like a kid has got hold of a football club and a copy of fifa and are trying to make there dream team, not doubting the leagues appeal but these players surely can’t be attracted by playing in front of 20,000?
    Money talks I suppose!

    Stade de prince? What are you talking about? MOnaco’s stadium is called “Stade Louis 2”. He could indeed hold 18,500.

    Le “Parc des princes” is PSG’s stadium with a 48,500 capacity.

    On bony
    He’s had a good scoring record for a few seasons now but no one has really ever gone in for him, his fee seems a bit excessive tbh and he’s a very limited player, he certainly wouldn’t seem to work as part of a forward 2 with cisse, he’s never played with a strike partner

    All right, will try to explain.

    In order to land 5 millions per year in the pocket of a player, a club will have to spend maybe 20 or 25 millions.

    In Monaco, there’s no taxes at all. So you spend 5 millions to pay a guy 5 millions…

    Except if the lad is french, for there’s special agreements between France and Monaco concerning french citizens.

    You can always find cheaper mate, but the club seem to be after some players from the prem to bring in some experience
    Good thing imo

    We desperately need wingers, being linked with ince again, be very happy with him and Sinclair

    I don’t get the fascination with how many seats a stadium holds.
    Imo no player at all is going to be thinking about stadium size when they are deciding which club to move to. Laughable in my eyes.

    Sounds like a very complex set up!!!
    Have to say I think Ze Germans have got there league set up spot on!
    Unfortunately I think the PL is in danger of becoming a bit dated

    A lot of players talk about playing in the best stadiums in the world, in front of 60,000+ fans
    Also the stadium size has an effect on finances so if you only have a 20,000 seater stadium then there is no way to bankroll players like falcao etc and be allowed to play in the CL

    Benteke Jump high…

    Better bring in Carrol for this kind of play, he does feel homesick!
