The Football League loan window opens next week, and Newcastle will be hoping to set up loans for even more of their fringe players, after we saw Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa and ben Arfa leave the club on loan last Monday.
Jonas Gutierrez – could go out on loan
The most experienced player who is still not part of Alan Pardew’s first team squad is Argentine International Jonas Gutierrez, and he would be an excellent acquisition for a Championship club pushing for promotion this season.
Jonas also happens to be on big wages at Newcastle, which is even more reason Newcastle will want to get him out on loan and off the wage bill.
It’s nothing personal with Jonas, as it was with Ben Arfa and Alan Pardew has relegated him to the Reserve team squad because his contract contains a clause which says he must be given a new deal if he plays maybe six more games for the club – and Newcastle don’t want to do that for a 31 year-old.
Why Newcastle allowed that to be put in his contract is the first place is a good question.
Other players who Newcastle will be hoping to move out during the upcoming Football League window are Shane Ferguson, Sammy Ameobi and Haris Vuckic – who have not made it at Newcastle.
And then Newcastle will probably want to get loan spells for young players like Adam Campbell, who is currently on a short-term loan at Fleetwood Town.
Adam Armstrong is also a possible loan candidate – if Pardew thinks he will not be involved with the first team through the end of this year, and that’s also true for promising center-back Lubo Satka.
Remie Streete could also be loaned out, and we wonder what the status of Curtis Good is these days – he’s had a hip injury since making his International debut for Australia back on March 5th, and he could even do a job for Newcastle this season?
What do you think?
