Has Jack Colback Been Signed By Newcastle?


The NUFC Fans web-site is reporting that Jack Colback may have already signed a contract with Newcastle, and if that’s true – that would be great.

Jack Colback – has he already penned a deal with Newcastle?

There is West Ham fans web-site Claret&Hugh here and they are reporting a West ham insider has exclusively told them they tried to get Colback, but they were not successful.

This is what the insider has exclusively told them:

“We did our best but sadly there’s no way out of the contract he signed. He was keen to join West Ham.”

There was news yesterday that West Ham had offered Jack a four year deal at £50K/week, and we thought Newcastle would be very hard pushed to match that.

But Jack is also newly married and money isn’t everything, and perhaps Mrs Colback wants to stay in the north-east.

Of course this doesn’t necessarily mean he has signed a deal with Newcastle, although that’s what the Claret&Hugh web-site is reporting, but don’t forget that Sunderland have also recently offered him a much improved deal.

But if we have the Killingworth lad locked up in a deal (so to speak), it would be good if Newcastle can announce it soon.

Newcastle fans need to some good news – soon.

Comments welcome.

    Why would he sign for the Toon if he “was keen to join West Ham” or why would he be “keen to join West Ham” if he’s already signed for the Toon?

    so Liverpool will spend a lot of money to get in good players and we will show our ambition by getting loan players in as well as players on the free.

    Way to go Ashley

    He’s a very good player but just not quite sure if he is first team material for nufc. Either way he would be a great squad player for us and we need to fill that training camp up.

    tbh we need to forget about the fee if he does sign !

    fee’s mean nothing its quality and the right type of players we need not expensive flops.

    same with gomis who would provide goals (which we currently dont have) free but who cares its what we need / colback will bring not only half decnt quality (granted he’s not world class) but he brings passion and hard work which we could have done with on many occasions last season.

    lets not forget what nolan gave to us and he was no world beater also.

    Is Colback good enough to be on the same pitch with Cacapa? We may get to find out if these Colback rumours are true. The4y sound like bollocks to me though.

    Shocking turn of events in the Remy Cabella saga

    31 May 2014
    Information is filtering through from France about just what happened on a hectic day of transfer dealings for Newcastle United yesterday.

    According to reports in France, Remy Cabella was all set to get on a plane to Newcastle yesterday when Montpellier pulled the plug at the last moment, leaving the newly-capped French midfielder astonished.

    It is understood that he had reached an agreement with Deputy-Chairman Laurent Nicollin to talk to Newcastle, after a bid of £6.5 million was deemed sufficient.

    But at the eleventh hour the club owner, Louis Nicollin, ordered a halt to negotiations, saying he believes Cabella is worth closer to £12 million.

    This has put Newcastle in a very difficult position as their £6.5 million offer was believed to be a case of ‘take it or leave it’ – and we may not see another offer from the Tyneside club.

    The turn of events is also likely to enrage Cabella, who had been promised a move to a club of his choice this summer.

    You know if you lot just showed a little more confidence in Charnley it would be a big boost for him Here he’s already gone out and signed Cacapa but everybody continues to moan. Unbelievable!

    So wor lowball bid for Cabella didn’t work then? This is truly shocking news! I mean how dare they value their player at 12 M pounds! How can we turn a tidy profit if we have to pay reasonable amounts for top young players. Ridonculous I say!

    Hang on, there was a lot of media coverage of him being wanted by Big Sham.

    If, and I men IF, Colback had signed some form of “contract” with NUFC, then surely we would have nipped all speculation in the bud by making a quick press announcement.

    Also, from my reading of the situation, Colback has made no public comment concerning any dealings with us.

    If he is our player, why have we allowed this unseemly situation to continue?

    Average @ 12 – the really sad part is that none of us would be in the slightest bit surprised. Fancy them trying to play us at our own game – despicable behaviour.

    Now we hurry up and wait lol

    Geordie,

    Everyone seems to assume Ashley and Nicollin are like Punch and Judy.
    Personally, I’m becoming rather suspicious of this little sideshow.

    @17 toonluva

    its because 99% of what we are talking about day in and day out on transfers is utter rubbish and made up to sell papers !

    unfortunatly our fans need to believe we are after players as our past records and way we do business show that these made up story’s could actually be true.

    us fans dont know where we stand as the club has lied to us that many times we have no idea what to believe anymore so you cant blame the fans for taking things a little too far as there only doing what the club has taught us to do.

    I say we immediately pull out of these negotiations! We already have Cacapa signed on the dotted line so that should pacify all reasonable supporters of the club. Bring on next season! We’re ready!

    They seem rather like kindred spirits to me.
    How about a nice little phoney war? Keep the Newcastle fans happy, run down the clock on a deal that isn’t going to happen and drive up Cabella’s price at the same time?
    No, no, no!
    We would never be involved in shenanigans like that.

    Ah! an easy question for your beloved Blog Hobbit at last from Siremre5 @39. It’s because we’re run by a bunch of twats mate. Because we never actually do anything or bid for anyone in a realistic way the journos run wild. 🙂 Ta for that lovely question mate.
