Newcastle Told To Raise Their Bid For Dutch International


Newcastle have bid €6M (£4.8M) for right back target Daryl Janmaat, according to reports in Holland, and that’s not too bad a first bid by the Magpies.

Daryl Janmaat – Newcastle bid close to £5M for right back

Newcastle usually go in with a low bid to test the waters, but with Manchester United also interested in the Dutch International, who impressed at the World Cup – Newcastle will have to raise their bid if they really want the player.

The news is in Voetbal International but Newcastle could walk away from the deal according to the report, and one worrying aspect is there was news a week ago that Newcastle and Feyenoord had already reached an agreement for the player.

So it could be that Feyenoord have moved the goal posts,  and now want more money for their right-back.

And the Journal is reporting that Newcastle haven’t made a move yet, but are ready to bid around  £5M for the Dutch International.

From the Dutch report the difference in valuations of the Dutchman is a not a lot, with Newcastle bidding close to £5M and the Dutch club wanting £6M.

So why don’t we go in with a bid of around £5.5M (about €7M) and try to sign the player quickly, before Manchester United make a move?

That’s an increase of only €1M to potentially get the player – and you cannot say that’s a lot – not when we have so much money available to spend this summer.

If this news is correct, here is a case of a little bit more would see a deal agreed between the two clubs, and then we can talk to the player about compensation.

We have to hope that Newcastle quickly increase their offer by (just) a little bit to get the deal agreed.

What do you think about this?

    Campbell needs to go out on loan to prove to the club that he is worth persevering with as his last stint was not very successful. His then manager made less than flattering remarks about his attitude.

    Slank,
    The bloke who made less than flattering comments re his attitude also said he had all the qualities of a very good striker. He only became manager at the end of the season as well. I think he was assistant before then.

    As for going out on loan, I fully agree. The same could be said for Armstrong, and probably Perez as well. Unfortunately if we do that we only have a crocked Cisse at the moment, so we can’t really afford to until someone is through the door, probably 2 through the door.

    He gave the ball away a lot but a decent defender

    The ba & remy story is from the daily star! Believe anything from that piece of sh2te paper and you must be thinking BG we’re winning champions league next season.

    Ed,

    The press / rumours are saying that ManU are not interested in Janmaat.

    They would prefer to bid for the first choice Dutch right back de Vrijj just as well as there is no competition between us and ManU when it comes to which is the more attractive.

    Slank,
    As for not successful, he actually had a decent record of goals to minutes played. Let’s not forget that Carroll when he went on loan got as many red cards as goals (1 of each) in 19 games for PNE. The following season he scored a few for us in the Prem coming off the bench.

    As for his attitude, the St Mirren guy is the first person to question that. England youth coaches and all through Newcastle they have said he has an incredible appetite for the game and huge enthusiasm. I’d put it more down to St Mirren not being a good fit for the lad, and possibly him thinking he could have had a shot at SJP last season given our striking woes.

    I’m assuming (forever the optimist) that we will get in a striker. He will be first choice followed by Cisse and then Armstrong or possible de Jong in an emergency.

    Campbell is likely to be at the back of the queue with little or no chance of leaping up the pecking order unless he suddenly has a footballing road to Damascus moment or two, many probably as one isn’t enough nowadays.

    Slank, if we dont bring in a 15 – 20 goals a season striker, we would be in serious trouble. Cisse, with his knee probs, could be out for a while yet so what does that leave us with?? Not a lot if we are honest!!

    We appear to be looking at some half decent mid-field players who should be able to provide the service so badly lacking last season. If it comes off then a Striker would probably have something to work off – which has to be advantageous!!

    Slank,
    I expect we will get in at least 1 striker. Not sure that is enough though. Armstrong playing 3rd fiddle isn’t going to help him though either. Both need to be on loan in an ideal world. I still think Campbell has a decent shot here, he is still very young 19 I think. He scored some good goals at St Mirren, good movement, good interplay and cool finishing.

    Both he and Arma will get there chance in pre season I expect, mainly because there isn’t anyone else at the minute. Anyway, like I said, they both need to be out on loan in an ideal world but neither should be allowed to leave until we have at least 1, preferably 2 through the door.

    Maybe Campbell just didn’t like the Jockanese, perhaps there were some McDonalds at the club.

    The Jocks have long memories as I should know as I was once berated because my clan killed 300 of a neighbouring clan in 1603.

    Has Debuchy signed yet?? Considering this is all meant to be done and dusted it is taking a while for confirmation to come through. Any idea what the hold up is? Surely we aren’t waiting to bring in a replacement before selling him, that would just be way too sensible for Newcastle!

    Yes they did as they started it.

    There is a lovely hotel on Loch Lomand which bans members of our clan because it is owned by a member of the other clan.

    RB is not worrying position at the moment
    The worst thing that will happen is playing santon at RB.
    Van Rijn,isla,jenkinson or Richards are not bad either.
    The focus should be MF and striking.
    Good to hear the delegates are monitoring
    Ba and Remy.
    Other exciting players nu ‘d look at
    Jordy clasie
    Luis Muriel
    Hoilett
    Taraabt
    Holtby
    Fofana
    Sertic
    Vincent abubaker
    Marvin martin

    Slank,
    If a player were to choose Man U over us it would be for wages, trophies and the prestige of playing for one of the worlds most renowned clubs, will you let up slating the people and constantly belittling the North East, like I said you’re no better than the people you left behind.
    Lil,
    If we go back after Remy it makes a mockery of this scouting the right personality policy.

    Slank,
    Ha, shouldn’t have messed with their stronger neighbours then!!

    I see it is being reported that Ferguson is training with the outcasts as well. While he is rightly being classed as surplus to requirements is making players train with the kids the best way to do this?? In Ferguson’s case would it not just be better to allow him to leave on a free and discuss compensation for the time left on his contract, rather than keeping demoralised player around the other kids?

    Jesper,
    The North East may be where gingers make their last stand! I don’t know if you saw, but there was a report recently that because of climate change gingers could become extinct!

    Jail,
    It certainly does. Particularly after his out burst after the season which was quickly rebuffed by the club. If a journo had made such claims without a Remy quote they would have found themselves barred from SJP and asking questions to club officials.

    Let’s see now.

    Each prem place is worth about £1m and the difference in valuations is said to be £1m.

    It’ll seem like a no-brainer to most, but to Ashley having to pay a realistic fee and wages would see him reaching for the smelling salts!
