Alan Pardew was asked this afternoon if the execution of plans for the summer transfer window have already started, and the answer was yes, and Alan has also talked about some of the youngsters at Newcastle, and whether they need to go out on loan and whether they will be good enough.
Alan Pardew – process for summer transfers already started
This is what Alan Pardew said today:
“Yes, it is. Our process has started.” “It’s important because I have to start planning for next year.”
“Is Sammy Ameobi going to be good enough? Is Armstrong going to feature next year, or do I loan him out for a bit more experience?”
“I have got Remie Streete, who is doing particularly well in the development group – is he going to get a game?”
“Does he need to go out on loan? Massadio Haidara has not had much action.
“They all need to be answered, those questions, in the next few weeks.”
We know 17 year-old Adam Armstrong, who was the Wor Jackie award winner a couple of weeks ago, is a potential youngster who can make the breakthrough to the first team next season.
Remie Street – 19 year-old center-back
And it’s nice to hear that last year’s Wor Jackie award winner – South Shields born center-back Remie Streete – is also looking good these days.
We also think that in the summer the Newcastle manager will need to make decisions on some of our youngsters who have been out on loan, like Shane Ferguson, James Tavernier, Conor Newton, Mehdi Abeid and Haris Vuckic – as to whether they have futures as Newcastle players.
Shane Ferguson has hardly been on the bench this year at struggling Birmingham City, and Haris Vuckic very rarely gets a start on loan at Rotherham United.
And it seems clear that this is shaping up to be a very important transfer window for Newcastle – with lots of players leaving the club and lots of news ones coming in.

This survey is for anyone who has been part of a construction project (past or present) that used some form of waste management on the project. See if you can help him with they survey here.
