Newcastle Have Lodged A Number Of Transfer Bids


A report in Get French Football is saying that Newcastle are one of three Premier League clubs who have put in an offer to get free agent Bafe Gomis to the club this summer.

Bafe Gomis – Newcastle have na offer in for the Frenchman

That”s consistent with reports a week or so ago that said that Newcastle had offered the player a massive £2M signing on fee and wages of £70K/week – probably in a three-year deal.

Lyon wanted to sell the player last summer to Newcastle, and at the time Bafe Gomis was willing to play out the last year of his five year deal at the French club,

But Newcastle, for whatever reason, were unable to close the deal and Gomis has now run down his contract and is available as a free agent.

But the latest rumors coming out of France are that Gomis would like to play in London, and it’s said that both West Ham and QPR have also offered him good deals, and it’s clear both London clubs are willing to overpay for their players.

As one example West Ham paid £17M for Andy Carroll and gave him £100k/week in a six-year deal, and last season he played only 12 times with two goals because of injury, and in the last two seasons at the Hammers (he was on loan there in the previous season) he played only 40 times with 9 goals.

And that’s a lot to pay for that kind of low production.

And QPR are in £170M of debt and lost £65M in their last financial year through the end of last June, and the club will be heavily fined for their over-indulgence so to speak by the Football League.

However that may not prevent them spending money they don’t have.

It’s touch and go whether Gomis will sign for Newcastle when he returns from his vacation, but if he sign for one of the London clubs it looks like he will get a good deal there too.

And according to the Chronicle,  Gomis is not high on the list of strikers at Newcastle, and is simply a backup in case we cannot get our top targets.

Newcastle are also reported to have a bid in for 22 year-old German striker Pierre-Michel Lasogga of Hertha Berlin, and 23 year-old play-maker Clement Grenier of Lyon, so we should be hearing some news – hopefully on some successes for Newcastle – maybe even this coming week.

Hope so.

    Its a goal. The ball doesnt go out of play from the first ‘no goal’ when it rebounds off the post. Since the ball doesnt go out of play, the fact that it bounces off the keeper into the goal should therefor be rules as a goal.

    Don’t see how the Hondurans can possibly argue that it is not a goal.

    Who dafuq does this commentator think he is? Bacary Sagna more of a man then Debuchy? I suppose by that logic, Shola Ameobi is a better striker then Suarez.

    @ Anita

    I heard that m8, “more of a man” ? . Keown hasn’t got a clue. If he actually did sime research he would know Debuchy was statistically the best right back in Europe last season.

    Commentators & Pundits should be picked on their ability rather than “oh, he used to be a footballer, giv him a mic” .

    @ Jail

    We certainly do m8 or we won’t make it out the group. We definatley have the talent but I think the pressure will get to the players and Hodgson hasn’t got a clue so I am not confident.

    He needs to get the Ox & Barkley in the starting 11 and play rooney in the middle of the park or drop him.

    BPC,
    I think it’s finally time for those that call Rooney world class to call it a day, as you say the elite players turn it on at the big stage, Rooney consistently hasn’t and that miss last night when compared to Robbens goal showed the difference between avgood player and a world class one.

    Our owner’s obsession with under-bidding for players is likely to result in yet another unproductive window.

    He can make as many bids as he wants, but if they’re too low, then they ain’t gonna pay off.

    This pi$$Ing about must be costing a fortune in both time and money but and more to the point, Newcastle United’s credibility moves closer to rock-bottom.

    How much longer can Ashley carry on the way he is? It’s sickening to say the least.

    Its a case of massiveley over-rating english players again m8.

    At one point in time a few years ago Rooney was truly world class, but now he doesn’t work as hard as he used to and his pace is gone and only getting worse.

    Watching France there now makes me realise more than ever what a complete and utter waste of space pardew is when you think what could and should have been..

    We had virtually half the French national team.

    1) Ben Arfa ruined
    2) MYM ruined
    3) Cabaye couldn’t get away quick enough
    4) Remy ditto
    5) Debuchy allegedly wants out too.
    – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
    Marv not even in the squad
    Haidara behind Dummet
    Gouffran a striker played as a defensive left mid

    We could have been the number 1 club in France and enjoyed all kind of contacts and production lines of talent for years.

    Now no one will play for Pardew and Ash just habitually low balls French clubs. What a totally useless pair of human beings.

    I don’t buy that argument m8, same goes for people that Ronaldo or Messi can’t be called greatest ever because they haven’t won a World cup medal. Despite them breaking all kinds of records in a time where the overall quality of football is better aImo.

    Even Ronaldo & Messi only have a couple world cup goals between them. Fair enough if Rooney never scores in a world cup but there is still time.
