Newcastle After This Full Back In Summer

On the final day of the January transfer window there was news that Newcastle were 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 out on the right wing.

Daniel Wass – pretty in pink – Evian’s home colors

Daniel is a very versatile player and can play in either full-back position or on the right wing, but this lad can score goals and that’s the major thing that comes through in his record.

This season Daniel has scored 10 goals in 25 total appearances for Evian in all competitions and he also has 3 assists – so he has as many goals as Papiss Cisse our top scorer, which isn’t too bad.

And in the 30 months he’s been with the French club, since he moved from Benfica he’s played 136 times with 27 and 12 assists.

Evian are struggling this season against relegation and are 3rd bottom of the French league with 26 points from their 25 games, and they are currently a couple of points form safety.

If Evian are relegated Newcastle could potentially move in and get a decent deal for the 11 times Danish International who has played 44 times for various Danish Youth sides, including 14 times at the U21 level.

One of the things Newcastle will be looking for this summer are players who can score and create goals and Daniel seems one of them.

Newcastle have scored only 31 goals in their 25 Premier league games this season.

In his career so far, Wass has played 238 first team games with 38 goals and 19 assists, and he started his senior career at Danish club Brondby.

It would seem he could be a good deal for us in the summer, and would help to replace Davide Santon, who is expected to sign full time for his former club Inter-Milan at the end of the season.

Wass cost £2M from Benfica when he was signed by Evian in June of 2012, after spending a season on loan with the French club, and his transfer fee to Newcastle probably wouldn’t be too much more than that.

    This is an interesting one.

    Apparently the transfer window in the UAE is open for a week yet.

    The Emirates of Dubai have made an offer too good to refuse for Pappis Cisse and he is on his way out of England

    Martoon, I agree, it needs a figurehead or group movement. There are the known groups which have organised things in the past, and I guess they are the most likely sources at the moment. I doubt if one ex-professional would be willing to put their name to such a course of action as they would be taking on a multi billionaire with multiple billions of resources.

    Whether people liked them or kept their distance, the Sack Pardew group had an impact which in only a couple of weeks put such an awareness out that it was being picked up by lots of media outlets and was repeated on Sky Sports bulletins etc.

    A similar push from them could see a lot more people get behind it. I was all for their anonymous approach as it is a group mindset being shown, not just one person with a forename and surname. We’re all in this together.

    Jail says he had no reply back from them, neither did I on another matter, but it takes a lot of organisation to put together something like that and they were at least replying to people’s tweets. They have said that they may well go after Ashley now Pinocchio has left, I just hope they do, I’m fully behind it immediately.

    Jeff wasn’t that the case last winter too?

    I doubt he’ll be away like, at least not til the summer. If he keeps putting the ball away like he has there will be far better options available to him in the summer.
