This is A Blow To Newcastle’s Transfer Hopes

News today from Burnley boss Sean Dyche, that the club is involved in “ongoing communication” with striker Danny Ings over a new contract.

Danny Ings – signing a new deal at Burnley?

Danny’s contract runs out in the summer, and Newcastle were hoping to either sign the 22 year-old next month for a nominal fee, or bring him in as a free agent in the summer.

But those plans could be blown apart if Danny signs a new deal at Burnley, who we will host at St. James’ Park tomorrow afternoon in the first game of 2015.

This is what Dyche  has said today about his star striker:

“We have had ongoing communication with him and his agent as we do with every other player – Danny is just one of those we talk to freely.”

“Danny has assured everybody that he will be here so I don’t need to speak on his behalf.” “It is an ongoing situation that we have had many times since I have been here.”

“It is tough in the Premier League but we are making a good fist of it at the moment and if there is interest in your players it usually means there is life in the club.”

“I only speak to Ings about his performances and how he is doing. The signs are good about him learning and adapting to the top level of football and even more so as a striker who has top international defenders against him.”

“Every manager wants players who are settled where they are and ours are settled as a group and they want to play well at this level.”

Any club is allowed to speak to Danny starting tomorrow, because he has only six months left on his contract – so Newcastle could still get in there with an offer – if we are interested.

You would think we would be –  because top scorer Papiss Cisse is out for the next six weeks or so.

Danny has had a good season at Burnley,  and he’s been playing well with four goals in 17 appearances this season.

The England U21 International striker will be Burnley’s main threat tomorrow at St. James’ Park.

What’s the chances that Newcastle will not bring in one player in January – which may have been one of the reasons Alan Pardew is leaving the club.

He may know something we don’t.

    How can we judge Carver yet? He didn’t pick the team last season, did he? Let’s see what he does tomorrow.

    The sooner confirmation arrives of the serial conman going to Palace the better.

    I’m trying to not get too pleased until then.

    If Ashley gets the managerial list from Carr, I hope there will be some player-equivalent names on there rather than the British merry-go-round dross who we usually see playing musical clubs (chairs).

    Carver seems to have forgot all what he had learned, and as we have seen recently he can’t control his temper, or maybe he’s just been Pardewed!

    Ings will leave Burnley but I doubt it will be for us, maybe Palace will snap him up.

    He may well sign a new contract but I’m pretty sure there’ll be a relegation clause in it.He’s got ambitions to play in the PL & for England.

    Who exactly firmly believe that the club who is fight for his survival, will be ready to sell his goalscorer on cheap? Get real!

    The ones that tell us MA is the problem are the ones that have just realised it. I’d like to think most of us know he’s always been the problem.

    I’d rather finish 16th playing attacking football that finish 9th playing hoofball

    Ashley Barnes has the same or more goals than the mightily overrated Ings

    If Mashley stitches us up this time, we should forget about targeting his inept choices and target SD instead, that will be the only time he will notice us.

    Sky sources say Pulis was never approached and neither Bruce or Sherwood will be considered. Sounds more promising

    Carver’s attitude and Contempt towards the fans is as bad if not worse than Pardew’s.
    Last season at the Villa and Chelsea game he had words with fans because they had an opinion, Same again this season. He was in constant disrespectful banter at the first game of the season against Citeh.
    I for one was hoping this guy would have been he would have been shipped out with the silver fox.

    Houghton back in job at Brighton.
    Bruce says not available for NUFC.
    Ings – no thanks anyway.

    I think we have a clean sheet of paper to work with.

    This guy was never in our sites…

    The new manager will be our transfer this January. And, no one will leave. Unless he pulls off a Cabaye-like tantrum.

    When that happens, there’s not much you can do. If someone wants out, get rid, fast!

    Ings would be a good addition, still improving, works his socks off, missed part of the season so took a few games to get fully fit and then started adjusting to the premier league.

    Off subject but with Leeds struggling and us a little short of cover for Janmaat Jan might be a good time to try and get Byram in, don’t think he’d cost stupid money either.

    Hope Charnley’s shortlist is a good one.

    career games goals assists
    Barnes 239 62 25
    Ings 139 44 16

    yes your right but it’s took him 100 more games to do it.

    Selling Sissoko, Tiote and others in the window would be good. Strong indication of asset stripping before sale.

    Can’t wait to see who we end up with, but going by the latest odds I’m not going to be impressed
    1) Bruce
    2) Sherwood
    3) Pulis
    4) Worthington
    5) Galtier
    Be still my beating heart!!!!!
