Newcastle Moving In For £8M Blackpool Winger – Money Available


The Mirror is reporting that Newcastle are about to make an £8M move for Blackpool winger  Tom Ince, and Tom was simply outstanding in the second half of Newcastle’s game at Blackpool last week, when we won 1-0.

Tom Ince – a Newcastle £8M target

Everton are also said to be interested and a couple of weeks back Cardiff City had an £8M bid accepted by Blackpool for the player, but Tom didn’t move to Wales after an agonizing wait and decision, citing his new baby and that he wanted to stay near Blackpool.

The Mirror is reporting that even with £8.5M being paid out for Bafe Gomis and a loan deal for Loic Remy,which is a  £2M fee plus his wages, which could all add up to  £5.5M for the  Remy loan next season.

And Mike Ashley is reported to have given the go ahead to Joe Kinnear to go after Tom Ince,  and the money is available.

Everton and maybe Tottenham are also interested, but if Spurs sell Gareth Bale to Real Madrid for a ridiculous £105M, they are going to be linked with every player available.

And Madrid are also said to be after Luis Suarez after they get Bale – so how do they meet the Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules?

They don’t, and if the FFP means anything at all, that should become a problem for the Spanish club.

While Ince turned down a move to Cardiff  City for personal reasons, it is thought that Newcastle would be a different proposition.

And after possibly bringing in seven Frenchmen this year, if we get Gomis and Remy through the door, then Newcastle want to bring in an Englishman – for a change.

Tom Ince would be a great signing for Newcastle United.

What do you think?

    Why go for Ince when Sinclair is available and PL proven ? . The only thing I can think of is wages.

    Ince is definiteley talented but how much of the hype is because of his surname ?

    Ince Gomis and Remy would blow most people away I think, though Jonas will still start every week 😉

    The perfect signing for Newcastle is someone called Javier Hernandez! He would be perfect for us, but I understand Newcastle dosnt fit his bill..

    @Big Pappa – I actually think that his surname may have gone against him because a lot of people have thought similiarly to you. Ince and Zaha were probably the 2 best players in the championship last year- or atleast the 2 most exciting.

    I don’t think he’ll ever be top, international class but he does look a promising winger.

    With the squad nowadays, this is what I think is our best starting XI:

    Krul
    Debuchy-S.Taylor-Coloccini-Santon
    Tiote-Cabaye
    Sissoko
    Hatem Ben Arfa- Cissé-Marveaux/Gouffran

    If the fee is about the same then Ince is 3 years younger and don’t have Man City wages…also Liverpool will be piss off everytime he scores and buy him for crazy money.

    Liverpool would be happy with the deal as they will get around 2 million of it, so thats only 33 million owing 😀

    Beattie,

    Cheers for the link. Did a bit looking around elsewhere as well and apparently had a season ticket from 99 to 02. Must have witnessed some good footie under SBR. Think we’d be happy chappies if he ousted Chunky.
    I see he’s a Bilderberg member to boot, he wouldn’t have to invest a penny cos we would just win everything if you know what i mean!

    about the poll. If we sign Gomis+Remy top10 should be a minimum for AP imo. Anything more would be nice and a bonus and i’d love to see us fight for EL but seriously our squad has the ability to be top 10.

    Also about ffp and Real Madrid. They wont have a problem, because if they sign Bale+Suarez they will most certainly sell some more players and they havea certain player who if needed can be sold for more than enough.

    about Ince. Can we really sign him and keep people happy?
    Cisse, Remy, Gomis and Ince all want first team football. We would most likely promise the new 3 first team football (if they keep form). without ince you can play Cisse and Gomis upfront with Remy on the LW if needed. But with Ince on the LW where does Remy go? Better than both the other STs imo so who gets dropped?

    Has anyone seen Dummet play? most of our preseason hasnt been on TV so I havent seen him play lately but people who saw him live keep saying how good he looked and might even take santons place vs City. Does he really look that good, or are people over excited? Would like to see santon tried on the RW and hba LW but that will never happen

    Why are people worrying where everyone will play?

    We have the worst injury record in living memory so we’ll lose half our squad by October

    Hernandez has bean treat like garbage at Man U. Has one of (if not the best) conversion rates in the PL yet sits on the bench the majority of the time.

    He would be my number 1 target, followed by Doumbia. I would even pay £ 20 million for Hernandez he is that good. Good pace, runs the channels, works hard and is a brilliant header of the ball despite his size. But it will never happen under Ashley 🙁

    Ince is a top fella and player and would love to see him in a Newcastle jersey. His missus and kid lives across the road from me and he visits at least 3 times a week. I’m sure a helicopter from Newcastle to Hazel grove won’t take too long and he can still see Hallé.

    At least we know he hasn’t got a problem wearing the wonga shirt!

    I’ve watched him quite a bit over the last few years as we were linked with him when KK was here on his second stint.

    He’s a good player, very strong, good in the air, strong on either foot and is technically a very good player, but…………….he’s no world beater, he’s never going to be a 20+ a season goalscorer and can be very frustrating to watch as he doesn’t seem to understand the offside rule at time, but he’ll be a step up on Shola and will link well with the midfield, something we haven’t have for some time now

    hello everyone.

    recently Ive posted info I received from players, their wives or indeed the manager as I am often speaking with them. Everything Ive said has been true and posted honestly. But each time I have received some abuse which Ive noticed is the way this blog seems to have gone. So I decided not to post what they tell me anymore. And I haven’t.

    But then I couldn’t resist this post as I was speaking with Pardew earlier today and 2 players are arriving in Newcastle tomorrow with the intention of signing.

    He didnt give names but I could tell from his smile when I mentioned Gomis that he is one of them. The other is most likely to be Remy but he didn’t give that away.

    This is the first time I have heard of this business happening on a Sunday so that is very interesting.

    You can start firing abuse now.

    dont worry Sausage people will judge you tomorrow. If you’re wrong people are gonna abuse you if not they probably wont. Since you have said a date, most will wait before the abuse comes.

    One of the French news papers said earlier on that Gomis had said his good-bye’s at Lyon and was expected to make the journey to NUFC for his medical sometime tomorrow or Monday, also rumours of Remy being on his way are rife after he was left out of the QPR squad for their opening game

    t00ntime, Dummet is a really good kid, captained the reserves always got Sammy ameobi out the crap when he lost the ball playing in front of him I watched all his games and can tell you he has a terrific left foot, puts a great cross in as well, hard as nails and has an eye for a goal, the kid is improving all the time, wont let us down in any way if called upon.

    I’ve been curious where notion of signing Chicharito has come from. If he was labeled available he would have a queue of solid European clubs seeking his signature. Out of our reach IMO.

    Last time player SS said someone would arrive one person actually did so. He couldn’t say name so they though it was big player but it was player we already signed Kemen joining the club.
