Tottenham Make Huge £12M Bid For Newcastle Target

22 year-old Danny Ings is a top target for Newcastle this summer, but it looks like we will miss out on the free agent with Tottenham having made a huge £12M bid for the striker,  who Newcastle were first interested in way back in 2010, when he was on loan at Dorchester Town from Bournemouth.

Danny Ings – Burnley striker – Tottenham bid £12M

Danny already has interest from Davide Moyes’ of Real Sociedad,  and it remains to be seen if Liverpool enter the market since his price has gone way up.

Although Danny is a free agent Burnley are due some compensation and  this is what the £12M is from Tottenham – and that is though to be higher than any compensation amount form an independent tribunal.

But that’s much higher than Liverpool expected, and since that bid has been accepted by Burnley then Tottenham now get a chance to talk to the player.

It’s almost like back in 2005 when Newcastle bid £17M for Michael Owen from Real Madrid,  which they hoped would put Liverpool off bidding for their former striker – which it did.

Danny is said to favor a move to Liverpool,  and he also said this summer that wherever he went he didn’t want to be on the bench – which we thought may give Newcastle a good chance of signing Danny.

The news is that Liverpool were only willing to bid around £4M for Ings – which would be close to what Newcastle would be willing to pay for a player  who is out of contract at the end of June.

So it’s strange that Tottenham should bid so much for the player – but it looks like they really want him, and are willing to pay over the odds to get Ings to White Hart Lane.

With Tottenham having made this move it doesn’t look good for Newcastle – but we still have other strikers we are after and some may come in on loan too.

Newcastle have been interested in 20 year-old Aleksandar Mitrovic – the Anderlecht and Serbian striker – and we are listed as odds-on favorites to sign QPR striker Charlie Austin in the summer.

Charlie would be a great signing for us and the 6ft 2ins striker scored 18 Premier League goals in 35 appearances for a struggling QPR side this season.

Newcastle have also been interested in 21 year-old Spanish International forward Juanmi of Malaga,  and it looks like we are very keen to bring 22 year-old Chelsea striker Patrick Bamford to Newcastle on loan for next season.

Patrick just completed a successful season-long loan spell at Middlesbrough, where he scored 19 goals in 43 appearances for the north-east club.

    Who ever made that decision from Tottenhams end deserves to be sacked. Absolutely no chance of having to pay 12 million compensation for him, probably not even half of that.

    Very strange.

    No ed I’m not positive, especially when you’re suggesting we’re after loan players after Ashley’s so called promises to invest.

    Spurs bid £12 million, my arse!

    5m hes a bargain. 8m he’s market value. 12m he’s a bloody rip off! Think he’d forge a great partnership with Harry Kane, he’s got great workrate and likes playing off a bigger striker but can’t see him ever getting more than 12 goals a season!

    Liverpool’s offer of 4 million is probably the most Burnley will be due in compensation.

    Because if the player is under 24 you’re entitled to compensation. It’s usually decided by a tribunal.

    @toon from leeds – they need to negotiate compensation as Burnley developed the player. If they can’t negotiate it it goes to a tribunal who decide whats payable! Happened with us with Jonas And with n’zogbia! Think in Jonas’ case we ended up paying about 6m and with n’zogbia we paid about 600k. Its a lottery if you let it go to tribunal though as you could end up paying vastly more than you’d like, pretty sure Chelsea have been burned by tribunal paying a fortune for the likes of Kakuta in compensation

    *The fee is usually decided by a tribunal* but Burnley could accept Tottenhams offer now if they wanted too.

    Wierd for Ings to wait for his contract to expire and then have Burnley get 12 m that could have demanded in his own pocket. If this was december the Spurs might have done this to get to talk with him early and the withdrawal from the deal and sign him on free. But the should already be free to talk to him.

    Anyone know how Micah Richards has done in Italy? has he stayed fit? Newcastles problem can be we gamble on injury prone players to get them cheaper.
    Also if he’s played, in what position? always thought he was a right back but I remember him saying he liked centreback? or did a city manager prefer him centre back?
    A fit micah Richards is exactly what we should be signing but he missed a lot of football in the last few years

    They would never have to pay 12 million for him in the tribunal. 4-5 million probably Sazzer.

    He’s probably told Spurs he wants to join Liverpool, and this is Spurs trying to turn his head.

    Look what we value you at Danny!

    So if they want to go FIFA on this is possible that the can agree a deal but then withdrawal last minute with Liverpool out of picture then go tribunal and get price down. It should not go well down with the tribunal.

    Yes but wouldn’t 12m in Ings own pocket turn his head more than 12 m to Burnley?
