The Journal is reporting today that the first transfer meeting between owner Mike Ashley , Alan Pardew and John Carver almost two weeks ago was a positive one, and as expected Newcastle are expected to bring in around six or seven new players this summer.
Remy Cabella – Newcastle target
There will be a sizable change in the squad, with a number of fringe players and those not having their contracts renewed in July will move out of the club – such as Dan Gosling, Shola Ameobi and Conor Newton..
With Newcastle coming into some major money from the Premier League in May and in the last financial year the club making a good £9.9M in profit this news is not too surprising – and it’s good news.
And as expected after the game on Saturday, which was a welcome win for the lads, Mike Ashley was present and he did have a talk on transfer business with Alan Pardew after the game.
John Carver had said after the game that Alan was on his way over to St. James’ Park, since he was then allowed into the stadium, and with Mike being there it was all set for them to talk about the transfers again.
John did say it was good that Mike made the game on Saturday:
“It was great to see the owner here and show his support. Shows he is right behind us and supported us.”
That was the first time Ashley had been at St. James’ Park for a while and the club’s financials are tightly controlled by Ashley, but now Newcastle are in a very good situation financially.
And with big money starting to come in this season from the TV revenues, we should be able to make a lot more than £9.9M in profits, so the money will be there to spend.
From the Journal report today they say it’s going to be six or seven players coming in, and they are already working to try to bring Remy Cabella to the club.
And as we had pointed out yesterday it could be difficult for Newcastle to get both Remy Cabella and Clement Grenier into the club this summer.
But overall this is some good news on the transfer front.
