Newcastle Offered Decent Player Exchange Deal

Newcastle have a number of players who need to be sold this summer, and quite a few Frenchmen such as Sylvain Marveaux, Gabriel Obertan and Hatem Ben Arfa will be leaving the club – so maybe Newcastle can do some player exchange deals this summer.


M’Baye Niang – French U21 forward/winger

And there’s news on Italian web-site Tuttosport, that AC Milan are really interested in taking Italian left-back Davide Santon back home to Italy, and they are willing to trade some players for him.

Newcastle owner Mike Ashley would want at least £10M for Davide, before he would be willing to sell the 23 year-old, who is already  settled on Tyneside with his Geordie girlfriend and their beautiful one year old daughter Sienna.

Tuttosport are reporting the Italian giants are willing to offer both Kevin Constant and M’Baye Niang in a player exchange deal for Davide – and Newcastle should at least consider that offer.

Niang is a 19 year-old winger/forward/striker (take your pick),  who is already a French U21 International and he stands 6′ tall and joined Milan two years ago from Caen, and he could be one for the future.

He’s already played 33 times for Milan, and while at Caen he played 30 times with 5 goals and 43 assists for the French club, so this lad could be a useful player for the Magpies.

Niang  joined Montpellier on loan in January and played 22 times for them and scored 5 goals and had 2 assists, and he helped the French club just avoid relegation last season.

However, he also got into some personal trouble, when had an accident in his Ferrari, and crashed into a number of cars and also a tree came speeding towards him – and for that he received a suspended 18 month sentence.

Kevin Constant – AC Milan left back

We’re not so upbeat on Kevin Constant, who can play both in defense and midfield, but usually plays at left back, and he joined AC Milan two years ago from Genoa, so he could be a direct replacement for Davide, and he’s played 21 times for the Guinea National side.

Kevin played 26 times last season for Milan, and in total he has made 57 appearances for the Italian giants, and he also stands 6′ tall.

We like the idea of bringing in M’Baye Niang, so maybe Newcastle could do a player exchange for him, and get some cash from AC Milan in addition to the 19 year-old.

And with Newcastle needing to unload a number of players this summer, part exchange deals would seem to be attractive to the Magpies – if we  can get the right players as part of the deal.

What do you think?

    mojo – thank you for considering me as a business partner -however I will have to decline your offer. Perhaps you may find willing partners elsewhere. Could I suggest the following to you:-
    Rolf Harris
    Gary Glitter
    last but not least Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs (if you team up will Bill you’ll need some night vision equipment).

    Got a lot of time for Niang, feel like he could be a goal per 2 games given 2-3 years of first team football, Constant on the other hand, just look at him – body language doesn’t give me the feeling he is the hardest of workers and seems quite dopey lol.

    Sad to Santon leave if he does. He’ll excel in Italy.

    looks a none starter to me
    are those stats right he got 43 assists in 30 games even taking all his first team games into account 43 assists is pretty good we could do with a player like that

    Laser Tattoo Removal – from only £60 (usually £120)

    If you have a tattoo that is outdated, unwanted or the regrettable result of a wild night out, get it removed now….

    Part -exchange deals are too complicated for our ‘intelligent’ owner who, of course, knows nowt about football.
    Taking a really good player (or two) for one you’re selling is one way of ensuring the deal is a good one and easily put through.
    It’s also a way of really pressurising and getting what you want in exchange if the buying club is absolutely desperate for your player.
    Like I said – too difficult to pursue for our useless lot.

    you keep grouping those three players together. Two have never made it. The other is our most talented player! With a new manager he’ll be at the very centre of the team, so please stop ‘offloading’ him.

    swap deals never hardly ever come off and teams want to choose there own players not get other teams rejects.

    niang is the obvious choice for us in this part but he’s too much trouble and not enough talent to put up with it (reminds me of ranger)

    Niang has insane talent for 19 years old. He is basically a 19-year old Balotelli. Same profile, pacey, skilful, on his day he us top-notch… But he’s volatile too, just like Mario.

    Mario didn’t really make it over here, although he probably wasn’t given enough time to grow-up in the end. (Or even enough starts in a row).

    I’d take this deal.

    My question:
    Why would we sign Perez at 20 years old, for the development squad, but Nuang at 19 for the first team?

    We seem to go to a lot of trouble to find the right characters for the club, depending on what type of right character depends on your fee, divas with rape cases hanging over them are fine if the price is right.

    @26 sliema

    perez looks a real talent but tbf to the lad he’s not played against very good players like niang would have in his playing career and thats not to mention niang’s physique compared to perez’s.

    i got high hopes for perez same as with campbell/arma/rolando/bigi/abied/streete/good/woodman ect but all these players will be better playing competitive games rather than bench warming.

    yep as we all know remy is all about self worth and he will go wherever offers him the best deal but i still wouldnt have turned him down if we did sign him. (some players like remy/balotelli/ronaldo have too big of an ego and self worth but its prob what makes them better than most)

    come on mate you didn’t believe that liar did you? Remy isn’t good enough for a top 4 club. He’s decent but picks up injuries too easily, I don’t think going to QPR over us did him any favours either. On the other hand I can’t blame the idiot for not wanting to join us now though, we paid for him on loan and he proved his point! We show very little ambition to convince players like him we will ever try to compete for CL whereas spurs can show him that!!

    I won’t happen but Gomez went to Fiorentina and Higuain to Napoli so it’s not impossible unless you have an owner like Ashley then it is.

    No ToonFromLeeds mate. That’s not exactly correct. We’re after KAREN Benzema. She is the niece of the Montpellier president who likes us so much. A top, top striker in her own right as well. 😯

    I guess I shouldn’t really be surprised at you being reduced to making personal school ground insults. Your girlfriend and mother must be in awe of your sexist leanings.

    I guess being obvious is a cross you have to bear, as you seemingly have not grasped the complexities of post-neanderthal higher levels of discussion.

    A foreign diplomat was probably not an advised career option for you.

    I’m really sorry my lack of enthusiasm for Mr Pardew has upset you so much that you feel the need to display your articulate prowess and wordsmanship to such an amazing degree

    Could this work for you bud? New start and all.

    We’re apparently looking at getting a top under 10 player from France in exchange for Obertan. She is a very pacey winger on her school team and she doesn’t look like any of the characters from SpongeBob Square Pants.
