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 – 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 – €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.
Howay The Lads!!
