Newcastle Already Have One Striker Signed On

We cannot get too serious about who Newcastle are after in the transfer market this summer, until we know we are safe in the Premier League, but there are reports coming in that Newcastle are fairly busy in the transfer market right now.

Yesterday there were reports Newcastle wanted 19 year-old Manchester City Belgian International center-back Jason Denayer, and there is a report in Spain that Newcastle have agreed to sign up 19 year-old Barcelona striker Sandro Ramirez for a season long loan deal.

Sandro Ramirez – 19 year-old Barcelona and Spain U21 striker

Sandro has played 12 times for the full Barcelona side with 4 goals, and he is certainly a top young striker who has played for all the Spanish youth sides including 3 times at the U21 level.

The report is in the Spanish daily sports newspaper Marca, and apparently his agent Gines Carvajal has been in talks with the Tyneside club in the past week, and the report suggests an agreement has been reached.

But any deal will not be signed, sealed and delivered until Newcastle are definitely in the Premier League next season, so let’s hope we can wrap that up at QPR on Saturday.

It will be a huge relief if we can do that.

Sandro was born in Las Palmas in the Canary Islands in 1995 and joined Barcelona back in 2009, and he has played 50 times with 13 goals for the Barcelona B side, but is now thought to be ready to play first team football elsewhere next season in his development as a footballer.

It seems Newcastle are determined to bring in a young striker for next season on loan, after we have been heavily linked with young 19 year-old Manchester United striker James Wilson.

But that deal presumably fell through for a couple of reasons , one is that we are not yet sure of being in the Premier League and Newcastle have been in disarray this season on a number of fronts.

The Red Devils prefer to send their top young striker to a more settled club.

Sandro Ramirez would seem to be an excellent signing for Newcastle, and it seems it’s all wrapped up – once we gain Premier League survival.

    nice to see the club learnt there lesson with chucky

    these loan links are a concern
    if we loan them in so we can send our own players out onloan to improve then that’s not to bad

    but whats the point in bringing a striker that’s plays in barca’s b team what do we think he is going to do

    i don’t see a loan signing from barca b team as a way to get people to buy a season ticket
    did any1 rush out and buy a season ticket on the strength of chucky coming in

    Probably not but they will not buy a ticket with no activity, or who they are really after. the next excuse will be we could not get anyone over the line as no one knows where Alan kept it.

    Although it is only a loan deal the Barcelona B team is packed with class players. If it is with option to buy with a fixed price then it’s a good deal. He could link up very well with Ayoze Perez.

    His not small and dont let his Wikipeadia reported heigh of 5ft9 put you off, he is defo taller and bigger than most 19 year olds, He is strong, good feet and has scored powerful goals with both his left and right foot. He appears to be built for the PL,

    The only issue with loan deals are the ones where a fee isnt agreed to make it permanent at the end of the deal. If we could get that in place, or a first refusal, I would be over the moon

    I will believe this when i see it, and Barca would more than likely sell one of their youth talents outright any way?

    We should be concentrating on getting in a decent Head Coach before doing any business for Players!
    Carver is WAY OUT OF HIS DEPTH ! God help us if he gets the job permanently!

    The only problem I have with these reported deals is that we don’t seem to be looking at players with any experience. With all the talk of Gutierrez, tiote Collocini Ryan Taylor all moving on, we need to be looking at players with experience. You need to have a mix of youth and experience. As the old saying goes, you don’t win anything with kids!!!! Did I just say win there????
