Newcastle Trying For Dramatic Signing Before The Deadline


We reported earlier today that Newcastle seem to be trying to bring in a full back come winger in 25 year-old Evian player Daniel Wass, who can play in either full back position and also on the right wing.

Daniel Wass – pretty in pink – Evian’s home colors
He’ll look much better in black and white!


Daniel is very versatile, but the main thing that shows through in his record is the number of goals he has scored and the number of assists he’s created.

This season he’s played 24 times for Evian in all competitions with 10 goals and three assists, and in his 30 months with the French club he’s played 135 times with 27 goals and 12 assists.

Evian are struggling this season and are 3rd bottom of the French league with 23 points from their 23 games.

We don’t know if Evian will be willing to let one of their best players leave in January – that’s something very few clubs do – with an exception to that being Newcastle United.

But Newcastle need players who can score some goals – even if Daniel is principally a full backs, and maybe brought in after Davide Santon agreed to a loan deal at his former club Inter-Milan earlier today.

In the past top clubs like Chelsea, Liverpool, Inter Milan and Schalke have all been interested in the player, who has 11 caps for Denmark.

But it seems like Newcastle are the only club in for Wass at the moment – if the initial report in the Mail is to be believed.

It has not been a good day for Newcastle fans so far, and we are almost certain to lose 18 year-old top young English midfielder Dele Alli to Tottenham – and how we managed to do that after being in the driver’s seat for so long – is a very good question.

Tottenham were credited with making a move for him only only two or three days ago, and seem to have won the race for the wonder-kid.

Maybe Newcastle were haggling to get the fee down to £4M from £5M – or some ridiculous thing like that – and maybe Spurs moved in and offered MK Dons £6M – just a complete guess on our part on what could have happened – but that’s based on some of Newcastle past dealings in the transfer market.

The more we learn about Daniel Wass the more we hope Newcastle can pull off what would be a deadline day coup for the club, and might raise the spirits of Newcastle fans.

But that would also be a surprise, given how Newcastle usually operate in these January transfer windows – with players generally moving in the opposite direction.

It also appears that as many as five of Newcastle fringe players could be moving to Rangers, to help them win promotion back to the Scottish Premier League via the playoffs.

Here’s some additional information on Daniel Wass:

  • Wass stands 5’11” tall and started his career at Brondy back in 2007, and he played 99 times for the Danish club with 10 goals and 7 assists – again a good return in goals and assists from the player.
  • Evian paid around £2M for him from Benfica, so he likely will not cost too much more than that to move to Newcastle United.
  • Daniel was born in Gladsaxe, Denmark in 1989
  • He has played for all the Danish Youth sides from U16 through U21,  and played 44 times in total, and 14 times for the U21 side

Here’s hoping.

    This originally came from an article about Fiorentina being interested in him, we were just a footnote as a possible other interested club. Nothing doing here.

    Signing a player from Evian? Just doesn’t hold water.
    He doesn’t have the minerals to play for us. Carver won’t have the bottle to ask Ashley for the money.
    Et.c.

    Rotonda,
    A few unpleasant posters such as yourself tend to have a go at me from time to time then there’s the lunatics like Ian Toon. I think I have enough people out there who enjoy my contributions not to let people like yourself make me want to change my style.

    Like you mate I’m at a total loss to explain it.

    Is Carr the main man, deciding who comes and and who leaves, Charley the tea boy who will occasionally take a note from Carr to Ashley begging for some coppers from the staff donations jar to get a player in.

    Mr (please pick me pick me) Carver, says he has nothing to do with it, so don’t blame me, I just want the job, so I can sit in the managers chair and park in the managers spot, did I mention I’m a Geordie, Transfers? What’s a transfer?

    I think I read it somewhere in one (or all) of his interviews, I know what he’s not, he not the man to take us forward, no spine, I would have Fatty and Charnley hanging by their toenails now.

    That’s because for the rest of the country it’s Transfer Deadline Day,

    If you support Newcastle it’s Transfer Depression Day. 😀

    Reckon a front six of these boys below will be absolute dynamite.

    ————————–Abied———————–
    ——Cabella—-Sissoko—-De Jong—-Aarons——
    ————————–Perez—————————-

    Tell me who we could now realistically sign to improve that. Granted we have no decent CBs mind. Amazing front line.

    Like a buch of spoilt kids whinging about signings, Aarons, the new Stirling and De Jong (Ajax Captain, rated better than Eriksen) are back shortly, might not be the shite end to the season people seem to want.

    UP THE TOON.

    PARDEWS GONE CHEER UP.

    Jail

    You see what I mean, everything is an insult. You just prove the point. Do you really genuinely think you are a pleasant individual? Remember you’re the guy who calls people tagnuts and auld farts.

    Anyone who has a different point of view is subject ot your negative abuse. Why is that exactly? You do seem terribly insecure. ”I’ve got mates, honest I really have, back me up lads”

    Check,
    Don’t you think that Carver has the job nailed on if he manages to avoid relegation, which imo he will. They will say ‘well John knows the club inside out and buys into our philosophy, after only half a season we think he deserves a full season to hit his target of getting this club a top ten finish’

    I don’t have any problems with Jail, in the same way I have none with you, if a poster insults me that’s fine I either give them some back or leave the bigger man.

    Sometime though it’s not an insult just banter taken the wrong way, and easily fixed if dealt with like adults.
