Newcastle’s Net Outlay On Players This Year Is £3M


This summer transfer window has already got to be one of the best we have seen at Newcastle for many years, and if we can get say a top striker and a top center-back through the door before the window slams shut on September 1st  – Newcastle will have done some great business.

Karl Darlow and Jamaal Lascelles – Newcastle’s latest signings

We have now brought in nine good players to Newcastle, and all for about £35M, and that means Newcastle have spent a net £3M on transfers this year, after selling Yohan Cabaye and Mathieu Debuchy for about £32M this year.

That outlay is probably a little more because we also brought in Luuk de Jong on loan in January.

Here are the incoming transfers so far this summer, with a best estimate on the transfer fees:

PlayerFeeClub
Ayoze Perez£1.4MTenerife
Jack ColbackFreeSunderland
Siem de Jong£6MAjax
Remy Cabella£8MMontpellier
Emmanuel Riviere£6MMonaco
Daryl Janmaat£5MFeyenoord
Facundo Ferreyra£1.6M - Season LoanShakhtar Donetsk
Jamaal Lascelles£4MNottingham Forest
Karl Darlow£3MNottingham Forest

And here are the players who have left us permanently or on loan:

PlayerFeeClub
Conor NewtonFreeRotherham
James Tavernier£400KWigan
Mathieu Debuchy£12MArsenal
Sylvain MarveauxSeason LoanGuingamp (France)
Shola AmeobiFreeGaziantep (Turkey)
Michael RichardsonFree
Adam CampbellOne Month LoanFleetwood Town
Jamaal LascellesSeason LoanNottingham Forest
Karl DarlowSeason LoanNottingham Forest
Mapou Yanga-MbiwaSeason Loan £600KRoma
Hatem Ben ArfaSeason LoanHull City

So Newcastle still have some money to spend, and in the financial year ended on June 30th, we should make some big profits – because we only had two loan signings and no permanent signings during that time.

We brought in Loic Remy and Luuk on loan, probably for around £3M or £4M for the pair, but Joe Kinnear made no permanent signings, and the revenue should be close to £135M.

Newcastle are trying to bring in one more top striker, but we also hope they go after a top center-back – so our defense is strengthened from last season when we conceded 59 goals – which was far too many.

Newcastle could show their ambition by still signing a couple of top class players before September rolls around – and that would be icing on the cake.

    And we still need a top class centre forward and centre half. Having signed nobody in the last two windows and received all the extra tv money, yes, we can afford it.

    What happened to Michael Richardson I thought he was gonna be our Gerrard, now he’s been released. I hope that doesn’t happen to Armstrong. It would be such a bonus if we brought a great player through from the academy as you just don’t expect it these days!

    ed that is quite naive of you, I remember dick dastardly saying free transfers were expensive , they add agent fees and salary into our system of buying players
    I reckon we have spent at least 120 million

    Add on the Frasier Foster sell on fee of 2 mil and wev spent 1 mil…..good business but shows how things are in reality.
    Cashley will be waiting till the end of the window to save the new strikers wages for a few more weeks.
    Im looking forward to the beginning of the season, before Xmas( when the new players will be Fraudewed )

    What are these players like? I don’t follow Forest, so my pulse is hardly racing for the following season when they’ll get here.

    I’m guessing the wages have gone up 8-10m a year & agent fees for all those players will be at least 10m. Its not as simple as deducting transfer spend against gain, especially as player wages dwarf what is spent on transfers these days. If we sold Tiote for £10m and bought Messi, Ronaldo, Rooney, Neymar, & Toure on free transfers & gave each the wages they currently get some people would complain that we still have 10 million in the bank.

    I think you need to come to terms with the fact that more or less all the youngsters coming through at this club won’t amount to anything!

    …we will of course build them just so we can take them down again. Remember what many were saying in here a year ago or so about Adam Campbell.

    It’s the same every season the names just change.

    You need to add in agent and signing on fees which could be as much as 7 million pounds based on previous deals.

    we do build them up
    but then so does the manager pards has done it with streete cambel Armstrong and now Aarons
    he comes out tells us how great there doin and there not far from the first team he then also promises them game time of which they might get 20 mins in a season instead of goin out on loan and carry on developing

    we have a pretty good group of youngsters about to come through but where the first team is concerned we don’t have a plan to bring them through pards will only use them if were up shit creek on the injury front

    Aarons this season should be getting sub appearances and depending who we play cup starts towards the end of the season we should be looking to start the odd prem game

    Yes. We use kilometres, litres etc etc and are more up to date and modernised than medieval thinking SAFC supporters like Tuff.

    By the way TUFF, how is your uncle Charlie Hurley.?Is he still alive?

    2nd day of the FL Season and the 1st Manager has been sacked!!
    Huddersfield sacked the Manager after an opening day 0 – 4 loss to Bournemouth!!

    They obviously dont have the same sort of patience as we do when it comes to removing non-performing staff!!

    You can sit and count what money did and didn’t come into the club, no one other than MA select few know the financial status or figures that have been received or spent. For starters we’re reported to pay transfer fees up front, never heard it said that’s how we receive them! there fore the initial financial outlay may be greater than being reported. For me the importance is not what has been spent but the fact we have acted with ambition and players inside the club are talking with ambition, I had to look the word ambition up it has been that long. Further more this ambition may prove just how how good/bad Pardew is.

    I cannot help thinking if you get sacked after the first game, maybe you should have been sacked all along!

    Jail – its not “Pro” anything but NUFC. He was on the inside, became Chairman, resigned as he considered the return of Shepard & Hall as intolerable to the PLC.

    Its as honest an account of the inside workings of NUFC as you are likely to find – the 1 you have ordered is, I think, the 2nd of 2 books he has written about NUFC, but it is the most up to date.

    He tells it like it is.

    Could do with Lascelles available this season because Streete, Good and Satka are all too inexperienced even as back-up.
    I suppose we are to be grateful that Monster Mash isn’t actually raking off the transfer profits this term. Now that he has the increased TV money to go with the free advertising.

    There’s an interesting article from Simon Bird on the club deal with the Sun newsrag whereby that paper gets exclusive pre-match access to players in exchange for a) sychophantic reporting and b) special advertising for S**** D***** in the paper. Other papers attending the weekly press conference, of course will continue to snipe at the Toon all the more, assuming their staff aren’t barred altogether.

    Next mike Williamson

    You’re right about the wages needing taking in to consideration.
    However including the list of outgoings above plus Remy and LDJ, I make that about the same amount on ins and outs.
    Obviously I don’t know the exact amounts but I’m guessing they’re roughly similar.

    I’d love a striker but if there’s only enough for 1 more player I’d rather a top cb and take the chance with the strikers we currently have.
