Newcastle To Sign Three Players This Week For £20M


Newcastle United should be able to get Daryl Janmaat of Feyenoord signed up today, with the player reported to be jetting into Newcastle to complete the formalities of the deal today – and that will include him having a medical at the Tyneside club.

Daryl Janmaat – expected to sign for Newcastle today

The fee is said to be around £5M – which seems a good price for a player who looked good at right back for Holland in the World Cup in Brazil, and the deal was delayed from being completed yesterday, because Daryl has been unwell.

But reports in Holland are that the striker will arrive today on Tyneside and the deal will be tied up with terms having been quickly agreed with the player and his representative – once the fee was agreed with his club.

And hopefully before the end of this week we will see former France U21 striker Emmanuel Riviere sign on the dotted line for around £6M.

This lad has been playing well for Monaco and last season he scored 13 goals in 36 total games for the French club – who finished second in Lique 1 – and latest reports suggest he will be on Tyneside tomorrow to complete the deal.

So if we can indeed sign Daryl and Emmanuel this week, along with the already singed Remy Cabella, Newcastle will have signed three good players for about £20M, and certainly the mood on Tyneside will be lifted – at least a little bit.

Comments welcome.

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

    Repost:
    On Valencia, having watched his games, he seems almost a like for like with Cisse. Apparently Cisse’s recovery is coming along better than expected and may return closer to November/December.
    I think Remy is still our No.1 target, with Riviere coming in as the third striker and Gouffran the fourth striker, we are looking good. Pardew will need to start bringing Campbell or Armstrong through this season, I think Campbell will get his shot in the pre-season and perhaps Armstrong is off to St Mirren for the season.
    But with Cabella and De Jong in, there is a little more optimism.
    Hopefully we can secure Caulker as Mbiwa’s apparent replacement, we need a player who can fill the void of Colo and having Caulker, a future club Captain, in this season will be ideal. Williamson you would think is the Defender likely to partner Colo if we don’t secure anyone and Curtis Good to get his chance, considering Good was already on the plane to Brazil before injury. The money may be there but we are still sticking to our valuations and not paying overs. Frustrating as always!
    Also, is it just me or can you see Ben Arfa on the RW, Cabella on the LW and De Jong playing just behind a striker? with that much attacking threat, having Tiote and Sissokho in midfield would actually make a lot of sense. Both don’t need to create but be able to distribute to our 3/4 set of 3 and ensure they play fluid and in motion, could cause a lot of problems for a lot of teams.
    My 2 cents worth as always!

    I hope Raylor plays many games. I missed his free kicks.
    He could be the answer of our poor record from corners and set pieces last season.

    Personally I think both Armstrong and Campbell need to go out on loan yo a good Championship side.

    …they need to show they can cut it. We are not in place to take those risks. We need to be sure.

    Apparently Emmanuel Rivière is very good at heading the ball and rumour has it he will be signed this week, albeit there is very substance filtering through the media about it.

    I don’t think we will ever sign Lukaku. I don’t mind with Riviere as target man. I don’t see any harm getting Carrol back. Especially if we get him under 10mil and cheaper wage. Having Carroll for corner kicks is better than what we have now, I mean “now” as current strikers, before we get Riviere (if we get him).

    Sydney,
    Neither HBA or Cabella are left wingers. HBA will be off, or right at the back of the queue for games if no club shows an interest.

    Wouldn’t want Caulker either, for the £8million you are talking for a defender who didn’t excel last year we could have a very promising Englishman from Sporting who is big, strong, quick and technically good, plus £3million leftover.

    I think it is time for Good to start being integrated in, if he isn’t this season then it will start to look more and more like he won’t cut it here. The club have said that they will look to the Championship for both Arma and Campbell to go on loan this season, provided the players are in I guess that is.

    Even if we sign Riviere, we still need a lead striker

    Aubameyang/Remy or Lacazette.

    I also reckon we need a target man

    I just see Carroll as another option, very little chance that we will sign him, I’m aware of that. I just don’t see any harm if get him less than 10mil.

    Don’t really want to be too pedantic but is not a ‘lead striker’ also the ‘target man’ ?

    I see that Connor Wickham still hasn’t signed his contract at the virus carriers. Looks like he is waiting for a club to come along. Newcastle perhaps?

    Slank,
    This is basically a story that came out over the weekend on HITC or some similar awful platform. No basis other than rumours and stories. It all seems to have gone very quiet on Riviere now.

    Santon,
    I agree, Lukaku is supposedly available for £20million and wants to stay in the Prem, but it is highly unlikely we will stump up £20million for him. Would sooner do that than £15million for Remy though! My point was more that why get Carroll, who is very injury prone and no more than decent on the ground, when you can get a far better all round footballer who is good in the air.

    Riviere is also supposed to have good pace, something Carroll lacks. The fee being bandied about for Riviere is around £5million. The harm in bringing Carroll back at near £10million is that it takes £10million out of our budget which we could probably use better on an actual goalscorer.

    Journal reporting – tomorrow TOON are set to clinch a deal for 12-goal Monaco hitman Riviere, who will join a striking pack that will be beefed up further by Newcastle in the coming weeks.

    Even if we do get Carroll, it’s not like he is going to play as starting eleven every match unless pardew plans to play hoofballs from the back bypassing SDJ and CAbella.

    Slank,
    I sai last summer I wouldn’t mind taking Wickham. He still has potential, and could probably be picked up for a reasonable fee now. He went to Sunderland far too early, and with the weight of expectation on him. I think he had only played something like 16 games for Ipswich before that.

    Ben3Arfa,
    We need a goalscorer to go with Riviere, if indeed he is the striker we are after. Target man is a lazy word in football now, any strong centre forward can be used in a target man role, but rather than looking for a target man, look for a good centre forward. Personally, I think the club will see Riviere as the one who can play as a target man.

    Having watched a lot of the video packages of Cabella, he appears to play on the left or right and with De Jong in the middle, it seems likely to me that Cabella will be used on a wing. We have seen Ben Arfa play on the left side a few times and can cross really well, both can interchange through the game…. Hang on I keep forgetting the issue here, Pards and his rigid systematic tactics! I don’t mind Pardew, he is a decent manager, nowhere great though.
    Both Campbell and Armstrong need game time, so hopefully they get good sides. And on Good, there are many judges here in Aus that rate him extremely highly, and Pardew speaks highly of him. He had a great run of games for Dundee before the world cup, could definitely rise to the occasion, he is an Aussie after all, we seem to punch above our weight
    Slank – I would like Wickham, his form for the scum in the last two months of last season was very encouraging!

    @slank

    no with target man I meant a tall physically imposing striker. I think the club had Lasogga lined up for that but the deal obviously didnt materialise.

    The lead striker would be someone who the club can rely on for 12-15 goals per season, somehow dont think Riviere is that guy even though he is a good player.

    Can`t see us paying 15m to sign Remy even if his goals just about saved us last season from another relegation dogfight.

    With his added weight (allegedly) the rest of the team will have no difficulty spotting him lumbering around up front !

    I like the look of this Riviere from what i have seen of him. He has good pace, skilful with the ball at his feet, can finish really well, and is a good header of the ball. I can see goals developing from various positions on the pitch. Cabella, De Jong, Riviere, Sissoko, even Janmaat knows where the goal is.

    On Carroll, I think it would be a mistake to bring him back, as it has already been said he is injury prone, but more than that our team has moved on from the type of football that would suit him, (well it would if we can get rid of Pardrew), I’m looking forward to seeing us play the ball on the ground and passing it through the opposition rather than last seasons hoofball.

    Would be nice to see Gouffran get a chance in his natural striking position, just to see what he can do.

    At the moment Newcastle, if Janmaat signs, will have spent the Cabaye money (£20m) for total of three decent quality players and that is without the £10/£12 m for Debuchy, so there is enough funds available to go out and buy two strikers and two more defenders. The signing of Janmaat should see the Debuchy move go through today and who knows, part of that deal may be Campbell coming in. Newcastle also need to replace existing lesser quality players if they are to stand a chance of finishing higher than 10th spot this season. Hopefully Ashley has learnt from and listened to his customers this time and realises that such a great club as Newcastle has to get back it’s reputation in the world and begin to show ambition and challenge for every cup in our league and those in Europe. Finally and hopefully Mike Ashley will have a replacement lined up for Pardew for when he fouls up, because there will be no excuses this time for losing three games in a row and the fans will not accept it !
