There was news yesterday that Newcastle may be interested in bringing 21 year-old Sunderland striker Connor Whickham to Newcastle, but how accurate that story is we don’t know but it’s true the striker could be leaving Sunderland this summer, if he doesn’t sign a new deal at the Black Cats, with only one year left on his current four year contract.,
Jamaal Lascelles – Nottingham Forest central defender
And last night there was news we were after Nottingham Forest central defender Jamaal Lascelles, along with Forest’s young goalkeeper Karl Darlow.
And yesterday, Alan Pardew was positive on the fact we may still be signing players this summer, as he had this to say:
“We have always maintained that we will watch the window right up until the last hours.” “I think we have done some terrific business this summer.”
“It must please the Newcastle fans that we have signed some exciting, offensive players.” “And, for me, I feel far more comfortable with the team and that we can play a brand of football that is expected of us.”
Newcastle still have some players they would like to sign this summer if they become available.
They include Clement Grenier and Alexandre Lacazette at Lyon, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at Borussia Dortmund, and it’s still possible one (or more) of these players may become available late in the transfer window.
And we have paid out (only) about £28M for the seven players we have brought in so far, and since we got around £32M for Yohan Cabaye and Mathieu Debuchy – Newcastle still have (plenty) of transfer money available, if the right players do become available.
