Players Who Will Be Leaving Newcastle This Summer

With everything that’s happened this season, and with Yohan Cabaye being sold last week without being replaced – which was simply diabolical – we can look forward to a big clear-out at Newcastle this summer, and hopefully some good players will be  brought in.

Loic Remy – will leave for bigger club this summer

Here are the players we think will definitely be leaving the club this summer:

  • Loic Remy – there’s just no way Loic  will sign permanently for a club that  lacks ambition like Newcastle, especially since we sold Yohan Cabaye last week to super ambitious PSG, and Loic has also become too good for Newcastle – just like Yohan
  • Jonas Gutierrez – time is up at Newcastle  for the Argentine International, who has given good service to Newcastle United since he was signed back in the summer of 2008,  and he will probably join Norwich
  • Gabby Obertan – Gabby has been a failure at Newcastle following his failure  at Manchester United –  and he will probably go back to the French League in the summer – and that will give the lad a chance to resurrect his career
  • Dan Gosling – another failure at Newcastle since he was signed as a free agent in the summer of 2010 from Everton, and he could join a Championship club
  • Sylvain Marveaux – the Frenchman could be picked up by a French or English club, although he looked good in his cameo appearance yesterday, and he should be given a chance before the end of the season by Alan Pardew
  • Shola Ameobi  – time is up for the big man who is now a Nigerian International, after 14 years in the Newcastle first team, but we hope he gets a chance to play in this summer’s World Cup with Nigeria
  • Conor Newton – the 22 year-old has never played for the Newcastle  first team and never will – Conor could join St. Mirren where he has played well there over the last two seasons

And here are the players who may be leaving the club this summer:

  • Hatem Ben Arfa – The French International has one year left on his contract in the summer, and Newcastle will have to decide whether to extend his contract or sell him before he becomes a free agent – and if Newcastle sell him watch for  some top European clubs being interested
  • Fabricio Coloccini – we don’t know what Colo is thinking these days, but he only committed to this season at the club, and he may want to solve a family problem by rejoining his family, who are now  in Buenos Aries
  • Papiss Cisse – the Senegal striker may not have a role to play next season at Newcastle, and may be moved on, and Newcastle will look for around £10M for the number 9 who started his career with 13 goals in the first 14 appearances for the club
  • Steven Taylor – time may be up for the local lad, as Newcastle may bring in a couple of top defenders and allow the Whitley Bay lad to move on – after he has failed to nail down a first team spot this season
  • Davide Santon – with Massadio Haidara, Yanga-Mbiwa  and Paul Dummett waiting in the wings for that left back spot, Newcastle may decide to cash in on Davide for around £10M after three years at the club,  and there will be  a number of top Italian clubs very willing to take Davide back home
  • Haris Vuckic – time may be running out for the 21 year-old Slovenian International – and it depends on he  performs on loan at Rotherham United for before the end of the season
  • James Tavernier – James is in a similar situation to Haris, and there’s no doubt that the 22 year-old can have a good career in football, but maybe not at the highest level with Newcastle

    “The Mag” had a good article today, but it was comments from one of the readers that caught my eye – does anyone know if this is true, or where it can be verified?? Quote-

    “Wish an investigative journalist would dig into MA as not only is he selling our playing assets but he is selling the land he inherited with the Club. This is all in the accounts and Mash Holdings (no prizes for guessing who this is) took the Pitt Street site out of the Club and it is now being built on as a hotel. This is not on the radar compared to the fact that the land above the St James Metro Station which the Club at one point was going to develop with MGM for a casino was also stripped out. This is now also up for sale and with it goes the chance to extend St James Park.”

    MA making hay while the sun shines????? I remember the so called discussions for the casino, then it all went quiet!!

    I think we should have Vuckic back and try playing him in place of Cabaye – I’ve always been impressed by him!

    Out of that list there’s only HBA and remy I’d keep. And even then HBA may as well be off as he can’t nail down a regular spot.

    I’d welcome a big clear out of the above players with a few quality signings to replace them.

    Yesterday was abysmal but I still think we’re only a few plYers short of a top team.

    Good article. Think you could be right with all of those above.

    Santon was found a bit yesterday unfortunately. Anita & Tiote pulled over to protect him, and gave colback the freedom if midfield.

    sorry I just don’t buy it,

    yes some should go, but all have these players have gone backwards, which means they have ability, under the right guidance these would once again look good players

    it will be a sad day that we lose up to 10 players because the manager has failed them

    please wake up before this happens

    there are 4 more- ferguson, good, the lad on loan to a greek club and the french lad back in france on loan.lets be honest none of the reserves are good enough time for a total clearout you can probably include campbell as well

    What is up with our owner, why does he continually rile the fans up, what is the agenda, why not keep pushing forward instead of grinding the club to a halt with these maddening decisions of his, we were going along very well, seeming to getting things right and yet again dosnt seize the chance (transfer window) i mean our midfield yesterday had no bite at all, sissoko, anita, are most the time lightweight and inconsistant to boot.

    would any of us fear playing against a sissoko or anita, i would relish it,

    Yea Yea Yea Mike you have got a big pair of balls in the business world, but we are continually getting kicked in them, this club has a massive beating heart and passion beyond anything you could imagine, we got digged in the pit of the stomach and kicked in the knackers three times over the last few days(no permanent signing, Cabaye going and the Mackem defeat, we are getting it big style, are you pleased with yourself, big man decisions that seem to hurt us all the time but raise your bank balance, what a frigan strange greedy man you are.

    By the end of the season old Mike could be a staggering 60+ million better through this club, any chance of us getting rid of him is gone

    Catchy, you’re going to cause yourself health problems with your obsession with Pardew, he isn’t going anywhere Malevolent Mike is more than happy with the job he’s doing and if he carries on like this he will see his eight year deal until the mediocre end.

    Mike will soon start to rake in the cash on his investment with Pardew hitting all his goals for the season, we are stuck with both of them for the long term

    Surely even his last remaining supporters have seen his hand now, they can have one more chance at we’ll see his ambition next window as the extra TV money will be there, I know and you know that there will be minimal investment until the assessment in January, this is as good as it gets.

    As Pardew the loser doesn’t like winning anything, but has the knack of collecting unwanted records such as yesterday’s 90years since the Mackems did the treble over us to add to his unenviable list of abject failure, the clown has to go.

    Keeping Pardew is like sticking two fingers up to the supporters.

    Ashley has done nothing but stick two fingers up to the fans since he arrived here.

    Why do you think that he would cut Pardew lose?

    his target was top ten, which we are on course to achieve plus the fat man stands to pocket 60+ million by the summer, so as far as he’s concerned every things going perfectly and the fans are the last thing thats gonna change that for him

    There won’t be that big of a clear out that’s for sure. Mash won’t do it he ain’t gonna spend that big believe me. He’ll be after a freebie or two.
    Don’t forget it’s Cashley in charge, survival is all that matters.

    So long as we get enough adequate replacements in I won’t cry about losing any of them.
    Remy I’d love to stay but never thought he would.
    HBA can be great but has never consistently done it for us. Plays best coming off the right but doesn’t offer enough protection to the full back. In the middle he doesn’t get enough space.

    I dont know how much I would need to hate myself to go to SJP and read somenthing written by JFK where he explains me that we needed to sell our best player. I would need to hate my life to do that

    The plus side of Ashley selling big and replacing low is that he could be banking the money to get his loan back, then he can sell the club at its correct price.

    Jail, i am a Toon fan first and foremost, i have stuck up for MA as you know but he is continually hurting and playing with emotions of us fans, and i cant accept that, financially as a club we are stable that cant be argued with but, he wants top dollar for players we sell yet wont pay going rates for players we weant, bloody annoying, got to be a middle ground hasnt there surely(not with him) he is just so single minded, he dosnt do feelings but we are getting stuffed by him all to often and that is unforgivable.

    Ed ..

    A lot of negativity is oozing from everything that is related to NUFC at the moment. Rightly so too!! 🙁

    We need something to left the spirits before the Chelsea match. Maybe the possible signings of the summer or the areas that need strengthening the most.

    I’m at the end of my tether with Santon. He has not improved in any department since arriving. I still have not seen any advantage of playing someone so right footed on the left, either.

    Comment #29


    The fact that both Santon and Saylor start ahead of Mapou and Haidara tells you just about everything you need to know about Pardew and when you realise that Obertans has made more appearances than Marveuax you have to resist the urge to slap him silly

    Comment #30

    Santon is another one of Pardews bum boys that never seems to do anything wrong . At the end of the day if Pardew doesn’t like you as a person, no matter how talented you are he will discriminate and use someone else .

    Total joke, Marv, M’biwa & Haidara should be in the team for Sammy, Taylor & Santon for sure as they are better PLAYERS ! .

    Ging, Dummet is a better defender than Santon imo and has a terrific left foot and a strong challenge in him and a very good left footed crosser of a ball, hardly ever put a foot wrong for theTtoon, a really good kid.

    I would welcome an owner who was ambitious and provided substantial funds, but do you think if we had man city’s squad under pardew we would score 4 or 5 goals a game. Not a chance.

    Anyone who plays saylor ahead of MYM or has no other plan than to belt 194 long balls to shola isn’t fit for purpose.

    Absolutely disgusted yesterday. 4 local lads playing (albeit championship standard) and no passion whatsoever from any of them.

    If we recycle out all the players mentioned in this article & bring in 1st team quality & better, I think Pardew can build a good team indeed. I think that will happen too.

    If Pards is the man to get the most of this team, well I’m not sure.

    Perhaps Ashley should rotate the coaching staff too. Still think Pardew can be good for another few seasons.

    Still gutted about yesterday. It really hurts 🙁

    @ JB

    Its laughable m8, I swear we could sign Messi and Pardew wouldn’t play him because he doesn’t work hard defensively FFS .

    Its not Marveaux’s or HBA’s fault that they can do things with ball Pardew could only dream of when he was a player .

    Fair enough if Marv had never done anything at NUFC and people were asking him to start just because, but he got more assists than anyone last season (more than Cabaye even) despite playing less than half of the games .

    At the end of the day Pardew is only good for two things :

    1) Setting the wors records NUFC have ever seen
    2) coming second to Gus Poyet with a better team (4 and counting)

    pardew has always had his favourites and never picked anyone on merit.

    Would be difficult to find a more repulsive, arrogant and totally up themselves triumvirate than Ash, JFK and Pardew
