One Player Offered New Deal – Four Others Leave


A little bit of a surprise tonight that Sammy Ameobi has been offered a new deal at Newcastle when his contract runs out at the end of June, while Jak Alnwick, Adam Campbell and Remie Streete will – as expected – not have their contracts renewed.

Facundo Ferreyra has completed his one year loan deal at Newcastle from Shakhtar Donetsk, and he didn’t play for the first team at all, and was hardly ever on the bench – so how much did that cost us?

Sammy Ameobi gets new deal

Here is the statement just issued by Newcastle United.

=========

Newcastle United striker Sammy Ameobi has been offered a new contract at St. James’ Park.

The 23-year-old, who sees his current deal expire at the end of June, played 25 Premier League games last season.

Whilst Ameobi has been offered a new deal, three other players who are also out of contract will leave the club when their contracts expire on 30 June.

Jak Alnwick, Adam Campbell and Remie Streete will all be seeking pastures new next season, whilst Facundo Ferreyra returns to Shakhtar Donetsk after completing his one year loan deal on Tyneside.

=========

With Sammy not being able to make the team in the last few games of the season, we didn’t think he had done enough to warrant a new deal but he’ll be given another chance – maybe for two years?

Sammy has played 66 times for Newcastle in total with four goals since he made his first-team debut in May, 2011 as a second-half substitute against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. His older brother Shola also made his Newcastle debut against Chelsea at home in September, 2000.

Both Adam Campbell and Remie Streete were at one time top youngsters at Newcastle United, but they are two more in a long list that didn’t make the grade on Tyneside.

Jak Alnwick played eight games for Newcastle this season when both Tim Krul and Rob Elliot were out injured.

Comments welcome.

    I think Tiote is on a good contract as well when we gave him that extension I think Obertan and Cisse are on good wonga as well although they could all be gone soon

    Blackley said earlier that Sammy is a half decent player. We have many worse players on the books.

    Blackley’s been saying from the off that Campbell wouldn’t make it. Can’t see Armstrong making it either.

    if we really wanted to keep Sammy why does it take till the last min to offer him a deal
    has some1 better maybe on a free turned us down ?

    I don’t mind Sammy getting a deal he will benefit from better coaching but also loaning him out for a season as well
    we really seem to do stuff arse about faced

    Toon Prodigy,

    I would imagine de Jong, Sissoko, Cabella and Cisse being on decent wages as well. at least 45+.

    Wonder what Janmaat would be on.

    I’d be gutted if I was Jonas like, I think he looks a different player, like he has a new lease of life at the minute.

    Sammy has turned down offers earlier in the year, maybe they just wanted to get over the end of the season stress and relegation fight before they got back to the table.

    Further, if you are in the Championship you might have a different plan altogether. If there ever was a plan that is…

    Jonas was a decent full back but a terrible winger
    Sammy deserved his new deal
    He was among our best players on the squad
    great decision Carr and Charnley

    Would only give Ameobi a 1 year deal.

    No real surprise with Alnwick, Streete and Campbell, the latter two got over hyped but you could say they were never developed properly either. Streete should find a league 1 quite easily, did quite well once he settled at Port Vale.

    Good luck to them and Raylor & Jonas.

    Is Ferguson not out of contract yet! clear him, Obertan, Williamson and Tiote next.

    If we get good quality in, Gouffran and Cisse can follow.

    Lads I was thinking more like Colo 70 grand upwards, which I think is pretty standard in the Premier League. Could be wrong on that like. It’s amazing how we are 8th in the League at paying out wages, sure I read that somewhere like. All we ever seem to do is lower it.

    Well, I can only hope we are freeing up all these wages to get some good players through the door and tie Arrons down.

    I’ve heard bad reports of Carlisle’s academy. My friend’s son (aged 17) was released recently along with everyone else bar one. He tells some sorry tales. I know Andrew Lapping the guy who was leading the consortium and will mention it to him when I see him next. It seems like Newcastle’s and Carlisle’s academies need a root and branch review.

    @toon-prodigy

    Pretty sure Colo is our highest earner at about 70 or 80 ? Mbiwa and Santon were on really good wages as well

    So technically we could afford to up our pay scale and get a couple more 80 or 100 k a week players as thats the bracket were you start to get real quality

    Quite a lot of players gone lets replace them with:

    Ayew Free
    Richards Free
    Schar Free
    Austin
    Trippier
    Robertson
    Wijnaldum
    Sandro
    Mings

    Replaces every player with a better player and also a good mixture of cover in positions

    LCBP,

    Aye, if possible I’d love to see some proven Premier League players through the door. Don’t know about anyone else but im tired of waiting for these imports to settle. It would be decent to see some ready made players come in to bolster or go straight into the first 11.

    Indeed we must have cleared quite a lot of the wage bill with those players, specially M’biva I think was on hefty wages.

    I imagine Ayew will not come to play for 10,000 a week, more like 70-80,000. He is a class player and could really make a difference, explosive.

    Yep I think a 442 with Ayew and Sissoko on the wings with Austin , De Jong as the front 2 would be pretty damn exciting

    Surely Gutierrez did enough to earn a 1 year extension? His experience and passion for this club is invaluable not only for the club itself but more importantly for the younger players. The passion he showed against West Ham was exactly what we have been missing this year, especially in the derbies. Im not suggesting he should be in the first team but more a squad player. I would have put his name on the team sheet first for derbies and important matches because he knows what it means for the fans.

    But the club manage to make a fool of themselves once again, all the respect this club had, if any, has gone because all they’re going to see is the contract of someone who singlehandedly (well almost) ensured our safety in this division terminated. It doesnt look good.

    How’s half-term going boys?
    I’m rather enjoying mine, and it is very good to see the blog returning to it’s default state, I have to say.
    Did Ashley.Out cock up, or what?

    Ashley SPOKE!
    It’s rather like one of those old-style platform games where you suddenly find the level boss has emerged from his lair and is lumbering towards you.
    He doesn’t leave his lair unless you have beaten the level and are getting too close. I would call that nearly completing the level. Well done us!

    He initiated diplomacy…diplomacy being the cheapest means of continuing warfare. Nothing he said was anything other than a new negotiating position. It is a new way of achieving his goals.
    All we can do is play the game. You can’t really stand on your chair and scream LIAR! at him. You have to wait and see (wait and see) whether he acts in good faith.
    In a week, I can’t detect any change of direction. Everything that has happened so far is exactly what we might have expected if he hadn’t made his little pre-arranged speech last Sunday.
    The only difference is that it is taking place against a background of relief and hope.
    So enjoy the half-term kick about while it lasts.
    Double maths and back to earth first thing on Monday 🙂

    Ayev and Aarons on the wings. de Jong and Perez attacking mids and Sissoko as Defensive/Box to box mid would do.

    Would like to see us get Elmohamady and Brady from Hull.
    They are two of the best in the PL at delivering a good ball in the box.
    Brady is also quality at dead ball opportunities

    Brady puts in some seriously amazing crosses if Hull had Cisse and Perez up front instead of Jelly Bitch and Hernandez it would have been us in the championship

    Get Brady for about 3 or 4 million would be a bargain

    Offered a new deal because they don’t get compo if he leaaves without them offering him one, that’s how we got Dan Gosling without any compensation due.

    We need squad depth Brady is a serious step up on Obertan , Ferguson , Marveux and Gouffran in that he would contribute assists and chances if he played not mope about doing nothing

    Wingers who can cross are something we dont really have at the club he would make a big difference to our goals especially if we get Austin

    I would of liked to see Defoe and Lennon come in when they were available.

    2 experienced and decent players of the Premier League.

    I really hope we change the age of that silly transfer policy that’s in place.

    If Jonas was a player on trial at the club on the basis of those last few games where he was one of less than a handful who saved the club from going down, giving him a contract offer would be a no brained but hey what do the entire footballing public know about football eh? Thank the stars I say for the coaching and tactical nous of Carver and the keen insight of Rosie Lee the Charlady. We’d be in such a mess.. er.. without..errr..wait wait..

    Bandb I for one will believe what Ashley says when something actually happens. I am doubtful. What I do believe with little doubt is that Steve Mc and Johnny C will be swapping cone stories while our new batch of crocks and bargain bin budget “prospects ” are being spanked 6-0 by half time in a preseason kick about at Leigh RMI.

    Some of the craic about the horse and cart made me chuckle, particularly the one where it was heading to Appleby.

    I’m actually in the horse business, so it did tickle me.

    Just shows you have a sense of humour, you must have to have worn that parrot jacket.
