Newcastle Close To Two More Signings After Cabella

8:27 am, Sunday, July 13th, 2014 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 8 Comments

Newcastle seem to be pressing hard to get new players through the door  during this coming week, and the side will travel to New Zealand to play their first game against Sydney a week on Tuesday, and four days later we take on Wellington Phoenix.

Emmanuel Riviere

Emmanuel Riviere – Newcastle close to €6M deal?

So there’s hope we can get three players in before that trip, with Remy Cabella hopefully being signed tomorrow for around £12M (€15M) – which is essentially what the Montpellier club were asking for their right winger.

There has been news over the last few days that Newcastle have put in bids for Feyenoord right back Daryl Janmaat, the Dutch International right back, who has looked good in the World Cup in Brazil and Monaco striker Emmanuel Riviere.

Daryl Janmaat

Daryl Janmaat – €6M bid turned down?

Daryl turns 25 on July 22nd, and the news is that we have bid around €6M (£4.8M) for the defender and there are differing reports out there, but GOAL is reporting the offer has been turned down by his Dutch club.

But we would expect Newcastle to continue the negotiations, and hopefully sign the right back up before Manchester United make a move for him.

The French press are reporting that Newcastle have bid around €6M (£4.8M) for Monaco striker Emmanuel Riviere, and the reports say the negotiations are at an advanced stage and that a deal is imminent.

It seems the bids for both players are for the same fee at the moment, but we may have to raise our bid for Daryl to get him on board, and while it’s hard to know if the reports are true – both players are said to be keen to join Newcastle.

If we can get Remy Cabella, Daryl Janmaat and Emmanuel Riviere on board over this coming week – the mood on Tyneside will definitely be lifted.

We hope that’s exactly what happens.

Note: Sean Borland has a student season ticket and since he will be away in Calgary studying for a while he wants to sell his season ticket for the first half of the season. The price is £140 – which is what he paid for it – you can contact Sean at s.borland@ncl.ac.uk

    Ed it would be cracking business to bring all these lads in next week. And I know I harped on about it yesterday, But im not as yet sold on Riviere being our main striker.
    I would have sooner kept Mapou over Saylor or Dummett and Willo. But if he is to leave us then maybe a PX deal could be struck with Lyon for Lacazette or Greneir

    So we are in pursuit for 2world cup stars and one rising fella.IMO all are excellent signings.never saw janmaat crossing from the right for strikers, is that bcoz the way dutch playing or something else?
    What happened to that hadzic fella and why is this site blocked by news now?

    Riviere won’t be signed as the main striker. That will be one from lacazette, Remy or ba.

    If we don’t get grenier, I think wijnaldum could be the one to go for, can play anywhere across midfield, runs at players, good on the ball. Scores goals, tracks back and is decent at passing and crossing. Plus he’s the type Ashley could make a big profit on.

    Janmaat showed lots of energy down the Dutch right last night, played some nice one twos and put a few decent balls into the box with one being an assist for the goal. He’ll be more defensive minded than Debuchy but he won’t panic when crossing the half way line like Simpson did.

    i dont thin we will get anymore midfielders as we have far more than enough now esp with anita/bigi/rolando/goofy/abied/arfa/guti/ober and marv who cant get in the team and are still on the books wasting wages.

    imo a rb and a striker maybe and thats if perez is not going to be used as backup to cisse/siem/cabella in a front 3

    Does anyone think that we will still try to sign Grenier? Or do you think that it was always Cabella or Grenier not both?

    I’m getting a little worried at the moment about Mr Ashley.

    After a couple of transfer windows of relative inactivity, he seems to have opened his wallet and is attempting to revitalise the squad.

    If everything pans out the way Ed is suggesting it might, namely more signings arriving I’ll have to reappraise my opinions of our owner.

    Lets hope that all of our signings turn up trumps, but if they don’t it won”t be Mr Ashley’s fault as he simply signed the cheques going off other’s recommendations.
