Newcastle Keen On Dutch International Winger

1:59 pm, Monday, June 8th, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 132 Comments

There is news in De Telegraaf in Holland that Newcastle are watching Spartak Moscow winger Quincy Promes, with the news that Newcastle scouts were at the game on on Friday night when the US, managed by former German striker Jurgen Klinsmann,  scored three goals in the last 20 minutes of the game to come from 3-1 down and beat Holland 4-3 at the Amsterdam Arena.

Quincy Promes +Netherlands+U21+v+Scotland+U21+JYvs-M-C8qFl

Quincy Promes – Newcastle watching the Dutch winger

That was the 23 year-old’s 6th cap for Holland, and he was at FC Twente until last August, when he moved to Russian club Spartak Moscow for a transfer of €15M (£11M).

The link is that he was at FC Twente when Steve McClaren was there for his second spell at the Dutch club from January 2012 for about thirteen months.

McClaren gave the winger his debut at FC Twente in April 2012, when Quincy came on as a 81st minute substitute in a 2-2 draw with Alkmaar.

Speaking to De Telegraaf, Promes’ agent Ersin Akan has said the following:

“Valencia, Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are all seriously following him. Quincy has impressed this season.”

Newcastle may have a chance to sign some of Steve McClaren’s former players, and this lad may be one of them.

Quincy had an excellent season in Moscow last term and played 29 games with 13 goals and 5 assists for Spartak, and while at Twente he scored 11 goals and had 8 assists in 35 games.

He wouldn’t come cheap, but we are hoping that McClaren will be able to attract some good players to Newcastle who used to play for him at FC Twente – and other clubs.

Comments welcome.

    So the hope of Newcastle being a success is that Big Mc will come in and basically buy all the good players from Derby and FC Twente past and present in the hope of making a super team.. Newenterby UTD.

  • 3 welshgeordie9 // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:09 PM

    Never heard of him.


    Why have I got a bad feeling that I’m going to be saying those words right up until the transfer window shuts.

  • 4 Rotonda heights // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:11 PM

    Valencia, Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are all seriously following him

    and the point of this article was….?

  • 5 Zero // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:11 PM

    Zlatan is available for 11 Million apparently, I bet Newcastle are interested… what do you mean he wants to play champs league, pprrbbbsshhh

  • 6 Rotonda heights // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:13 PM

    we’re more likely to get bent.

    see what i did there. Oh please yourselves (said in a Frankie Howerd voice…!)

  • 7 Zero // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:14 PM


    We carnt even get Bent hes gone to a club with ambition… Derby.. see what i did there…

  • 8 Lindisfarne // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:15 PM

    65 PL out of contract players, I would take:

    Ron Vlaar to replace Williamson
    John Flanagan
    Richard White and sell Krul

  • 9 Bambams // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:15 PM

    At the end of the day Charnley needs to show he can sign these players. I unfortunately do not think he is capable.

    He is not a football man, needs to be replaced but who would ash bring in willing to work for buttons.

    Until ash starts to pay for the correct ‘board of directors ‘ this will be the way.

    Richards might sign for us if no other clubs come in for him. Then we might get a Derby player or Championship players.

    If mac does get the job watch out for him saying “There are fantastic players in lower leagues ”

    We will spend about 25-30 million if we are lucky. Forget the 60 million that has been suggested in the rumour columns


  • 10 Rotonda heights // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:17 PM

    yes viera may not have had experience but i bet people would be wanting to come here under him.

    Just who is going to sign for the terribly underwhelming SM?

    Maybe, just maybe, ash did want charmless to surprise him with a Viera type appointment but knowing nothing about football Ash has washed his hands of any decision making, with disastrous consequences.

  • 11 Zero // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:19 PM


    Players apparently really rate Big Mc as a coach… so im on the fence with his appointment, in all fairness he may have contacts to tap the dutch league… albiet that league is hit or miss but when its a hit its a real good hit.

  • 12 N1CK06 // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:21 PM

    I read somewhere that Jesus Christ from Bethlehem FC was available and Newcastle are keen.

    I heard Barca, Real Madrid, PSG, Juve, Chelsea, Man Utd and City are all keen. It would definitely take a miracle for us to sign him, but probably worth a post on here.

  • 13 jimmysmith // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:22 PM

    Bea, I believe in fact there’s only a handful of years that separates us, and I may well be the younger. I still play 5 aside once a week, although admittedly for a rag tag bunch by the name of “The Old Superbs”.

  • 14 Zero // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:25 PM

    MC should be able to get the best out of Anita, Krul, Janmaat, De Jong, Tiote… is he really that bad of an appointment those guys playing at their best would make a backbone of a decent team.

  • 15 JP...from The Rock // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:26 PM

    Where in the hell does it say we’re interested apart from the headline Ed??

  • 16 richyg01 // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:27 PM

    McLaren may be able to persuade this lad to come here.

    I would put an offer in for Charlie Austin and Jordan Rhodes. £20-25M should get them both.

    Bring in Richards at the back and this lad for the left wing, then we are looking a (little) bit better.

  • 17 richyg01 // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:28 PM

  • 18 richyg01 // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:28 PM

    Darren Bent is available on a free! Ca$hley likes his freebies!

  • 19 ToonFromLeeds // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:29 PM

  • 20 ToonFromLeeds // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:29 PM

    Bent has signed for Derby

  • 21 Zero // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:30 PM

    John Guidetti is on a Free this year as well, he was pretty decent in the dutch leagues, suprised we havnt been linked again espc. since our squad is going more french – dutch

  • 22 Ron Knee // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:32 PM

    Good news for once!

  • 24 Jail for Ashley // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:33 PM

    Did you really PYSL at squelches comment about Balotelli ?

  • 25 JamesToon // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:34 PM

    Another option for left back, tyrone mings. so quick for his height, not sure how much ipswich would ask for though

  • 26 Jail for Ashley // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:35 PM

    I noticed you picked up on Ed contradicting his thread about Remy, why does he do it, he has the most popular blog by far, he doesn’t need to spoil it with sensationalist and misleading headlines.

  • 27 ToonFromLeeds // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:36 PM

    Agreed Ron Knee

  • 28 ToonFromLeeds // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:37 PM

    JFA yes I did Ballotelli makes Riviere look like a world beater

  • 29 Ron Knee // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:39 PM

    Damn! Another one who got away:

  • 30 Jail for Ashley // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:42 PM

    Don’t get me wrong here but squelch said Balotelli scored 30 goals and that was enough for you to lose control of your bowels ???

  • 31 BandB // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:42 PM

    Newcastle now chasing Danny Simpson after Charnley mishears an instruction to sign a team of world-beaters.

  • 32 mindshaft // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:48 PM

    Toon to bid for England international midfielder…

    To be fair should be cheap…but will Liverpool sell to us???

    Fara Williams

    Age: 31 Caps: 139 Goals: 37 Club: Liverpool
    Sue Smith: “She’s got the experience and the quality. She’s been there and done it. I think she plays well as a deeper-lying midfielder in the formation that Mark wants to play. She can get the ball and spread it out wide so Fara would be the first name on the teamsheet for me.”

  • 33 ToonFromLeeds // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:49 PM

    ok JFA I didn’t lose control of my BLADDER but I thought it was funny

  • 34 welshgeordie9 // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:52 PM

    You just jealous jail because I’m funny and you are not, stop being a drama queen.

  • 35 jimmynotcricket // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:55 PM

    Looks like NUFC are already doing lots of “watching ” their top targets…but not much signing.

    You suggested the club might be ready to spend £50-60m (which is less than last season’s TV money – so much for “continuing to invest”) and that their could be additional funds from outgoing players. But given several releases at the end of the season there must be a need for at least 6 new players net, and these will have to be of first team standing.

    This means an average of about £10m each, and the Club has previously talked of packages including wages. Assuming wages of even £30k a week this leaves an average of about £5m per player in transfer/signing on fees….

    Doesn’t look good does it?

  • 36 optimistic prime // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:56 PM

    So the Dutch where 3-1 up and collapsed.
    If he can play well until Xmas sounds perfect, sign him up.

  • 37 Jail for Ashley // Jun 8, 2015 at 2:58 PM

    Yes squelch, green with envy that you have a new mate !

  • 38 stan anderson // Jun 8, 2015 at 3:02 PM

    I see it’s silly season again,all the speculation who we are in for ETC.
    We need to get a football person in before anything else,you know someone who understands a teams weaknesses and goes about strengthening those weaknesses,like maybe a few defenders who know how to defend.
    Carver has proved he cant do it so he will get the H.C. job full time when The Brolly man tells us to ferk off.
    You could’nt make it up.
    OMNISHAMBLES of a club.
    We are going to buy the bullshit again and carry on giving the slug just one more chance.
    Buy the S/Ts before they are all gone hurry,hurry.

  • 39 ToonFromLeeds // Jun 8, 2015 at 3:02 PM

    lighten up JFA, HoHoHo green giant

    still being mugged off eh

  • 49 Our Toon // Jun 8, 2015 at 3:26 PM

    I will support Scteve as an appointment even though I’d be disappointed because we could do better. Rumour has it that the announcement will be made on Wednesday, strange what’s the significance with Wednesday 10th June? Ahh that’s right

  • 50 ToonFromLeeds // Jun 8, 2015 at 3:27 PM

    deadline day for ST OT f**king penfold

  • 51 ToonFromLeeds // Jun 8, 2015 at 3:32 PM

    Do you think, the deadline for OT date was changed because McClaren told them he was going on holiday?

  • 52 ToonFromLeeds // Jun 8, 2015 at 3:33 PM

    *ST even

  • 57 BandB // Jun 8, 2015 at 3:44 PM

    So Newcastle have pulled out of the “race” for AndrewAyew, saying he represents “poor value for money.”
    He was on a lot of people’s team sheets for August.
    I wonder which words they will choose when they pull out of the “race” for Berahino?

  • 58 ToonFromLeeds // Jun 8, 2015 at 3:46 PM

    B&B it looks like Newcastle will pull out of all deals

  • 59 John Tudor // Jun 8, 2015 at 3:48 PM

    why pull out
    ashley is the finest contraception

  • 60 BandB // Jun 8, 2015 at 3:50 PM

    I suppose when when you are used to trying to work out how much change you can get out of a tenner for child labour all footballers must look like poor value for money.

    BandB…It’s really telling that even a free transfer doesn’t represent good value for money these days.

    Does he not carry re-sale value as a mid-twenties international player?

    I bet some club is going to get seriously burnt by offering him big wages…watch them do a Leeds 😯

    McClaren helping already

  • 71 lesh // Jun 8, 2015 at 4:27 PM


    The best cure for Welshy boy is an enema made of Firey Jacks on a cactus.

    That’d give him something to laugh about.

    He’s probably doing crosswords in a caravan in Skegness.

  • 82 Jail for Ashley // Jun 8, 2015 at 4:45 PM

    Very good to have you back. I don’t agree with your statement of if you can’t beat ’em join ’em when it comes to different accounts though. I don’t think you got any particular harsh treatment from any WUM’s either.

  • 83 Belfast // Jun 8, 2015 at 4:45 PM

    It’s been a few months from I told you to shut up.

    Now shut up ! 🙂

  • 84 ToonFromLeeds // Jun 8, 2015 at 4:47 PM

    reports on Twitter that Newcastle are in talks over a £5 million deal for Lee Cattermole WTF!

  • 85 BandB // Jun 8, 2015 at 4:48 PM


    This is how I see it.
    We have already released Jonas, Taylor Streete and Alnwick. And Ferreya.
    The Chronicle has also reported that none of the Rangers loanees are likely to play for us again.
    I can imagine us letting another goalkeeper and one of the present centre halves go because the lads coming in from Forest will be regarded as match-day squad players.
    We won’t have two reserve goalkeepers was well as a decent youth player. We can’t afford that sort of cover…they said it themselves.
    Then there is the question of those who can’t nail down a regular first-team place….Abeid, Gouffran, Armstrong, Sammi, Obertan and Marveaux.
    Then we have the definite want-aways who were promised a stepping stone and may feel its time the club let them “step”. Cisse, Sissoko, and Tiote.
    And what if we get an excellent value for money offer for Krul, Janmaat or Ayoze?
    I reckon Krul, Janmaat, STaylor, Coloccini, Dummett, Colback, Anita, Cabella, De Jong, Perez, Riviere, and the two Forest lads will be left by September. And a couple of the hard-to-shifts.

    With six new signings. Some of which will be loan deals. Others will be free transfers. There may also be a couple of Cabella-sized signings.

  • 86 barkel // Jun 8, 2015 at 4:49 PM

    TFL – you didn’t actually pee yourself!? what is the world coming too when you cant take what someone says on the internet literally! 🙂

    I wouldn’t think there’s too much behind the Cattermole link, besides he’s their best player so I can’t see them selling

  • 87 Belfast // Jun 8, 2015 at 4:49 PM

    So did you learn anything from your little experiment ?

    Did I pass or fail any tests ?

    Did being someone else do anything for you ?

    Did you see Jeffery anywhere on your travels ? 🙂

  • 88 ToonFromLeeds // Jun 8, 2015 at 4:51 PM

    Barkel would you take Cattermole though?

  • 89 Belfast // Jun 8, 2015 at 4:53 PM

    That’s exactly why you shouldn’t believe anything you read on twatter Leeds.

    A little digging will lead you back to an account called footballagent or something similar no doubt.

  • 90 ToonFromLeeds // Jun 8, 2015 at 4:55 PM

    this is from a sports writer from north east called Martin Allen

  • 91 barkel // Jun 8, 2015 at 4:56 PM

    He wouldn’t be my first choice but I do think he’s a good player, better than Colback and more consistent than Tiote. I’m surprised he hasn’t ever gotten an England call up to be honest. I think what goes against him the most is that he is a bit of a liability with a tackle. In my opinion he would be a starter for every team outside the top 6-7

  • 92 Belfast // Jun 8, 2015 at 5:08 PM

  • 100 Tsunki // Jun 8, 2015 at 5:42 PM

    Jail no I shouldn’t have put it that way, more like if you can’t beat them beat them from within 😉 if it’s any consolation I promise never to do that again. I did get some stick from wums but not in isolation. I felt that generally at one point they were hijacking the blog at one point, and a few of them were multiple posters. I just got sick of it.

    Belfast did I learn anything? That multiple posting is hard to detect even if you litter your posts with clues 😀 which means one wum can gang up on many others pretty effectively, which is what was happening. On the other hand I found the blog to be accepting of newcomers who talked a modicum of sense and with reasonable humour and that counters the argument that wums have on being ‘ ganged up on’ themselves. It served it’s purpose , there are a few notable idiots I really laid into that have gone or cooled off, but it’s not worth revisiting. They’ll always turn up, especially when things are dire.

  • 101 GeordieTwo // Jun 8, 2015 at 5:42 PM

    The top, top players we’re after is astounding. There’s Phil Gizzle from the Australian Division 2. There’s s Marco Stum from somewhere in Germany (I believe he even plays football occasionally), There’s Antoine Tookus from Austria. All brilliant, and all coming to us!!!

  • 102 GeordieTwo // Jun 8, 2015 at 5:45 PM

    I’m glad you’re back and talking a modicum of sense Tsunki mate. We’ve got a lot of work to do on here convincing everyone what a brilliant owner Mike truly is. After leading us to a brilliant 15th place finish after only 8 years in charge how can anyone really doubt that?

  • 103 GeordieTwo // Jun 8, 2015 at 5:46 PM

    If we get Gizzle and Tookus we’re bound to be top 17 next season, I’m sure of it!!!!

  • 104 Tsunki // Jun 8, 2015 at 5:48 PM

    Oh yeah belfast I’d like to think old Pokat threw a bucket of cold water on old jeff. 🙂

    Best one to follow for comedy value is still indykaila. Watching the KFC comments is a laugh. Also, follow cwarr07 and his parody cnarr07.

  • 107 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Jun 8, 2015 at 5:52 PM

    But do not take any of it seriously, it’s all mis informed BS (except for cnarr who does it on purpose)

  • 108 GeordieTwo // Jun 8, 2015 at 5:54 PM

    A lot of you have been asking can we really afford players like Gizzle and Tookus? Only if we sell! That is so very obvious. Sell Sissoko! Sell Tiote! Sell Krul! Then bring in top young stars like Riviere the wild one goal man. Or like that fiery, ferocious, fabulous Fererrya. Get nothing but the best for us Mike! We know you’re committed to winning something now. It’s incredible news Mike. I’m just going to calmly wait for the silverware to start piling up. Beautiful…..It shouldn’t take long now…..I’ll just sit down and rest a bit……Get ready for the silverware……zzzzzzzzz.

    What?? What’s that?? Did silverware come while I was asleep? I just nodded off….Surely there wasn’t enough time for the silverware to come yet?? Oh….I see it was just the postman dropping off my season ticket renewal form….Hmmm. Well since we are absolutely, definitely, going to win silverware surely everyone is going to renew their ST??? Beautiful.

    I did miss my smileys though!

  • 114 Tsunki // Jun 8, 2015 at 5:59 PM

    Yeah shame cos that Tsunki’ s a tool oh wait that’s me……

  • 115 GeordieTwo // Jun 8, 2015 at 6:01 PM

    It’s just amazing how good it makes me feel that Mike is staying until we win the silverware. It’s such good news. Will just forks and knives do for the silverware Mike or do you want to go the whole nine yards and get spoons as well?

    Your articles are becoming more surrealist by the day during this interregnum period.
    Quincy Promes – are you ‘avin a larf ?

    Tsunki…how was it in the unknown? Could you please take Belfast with you the next time, he’s been sulking for 3 month 😉

    …so where do you stand on the McClaren debacle?

    I’m nominating myself for the position of Senior Supervisor of Incoming Silverware Receiving, Unpacking, and Transfer to the Trophy Cabinet. I have a very strong resume and have listed several of you out there who know me well as references. I know you won’t let me down mates. I want this job badly.

    Rob Lee has right idea

  • 120 cyprus // Jun 8, 2015 at 6:10 PM

    Ok Mike,
    I’m assuming you have nothing much to do right now, what with LC running the show here and SD on cruise control to the next billion.
    So, man, read the blog posts above. People are still upset, despite your TV cameo. What to do you ask me. Well, two things for now. Bring in an HC (anyone will do, for now, even Mc, a one year contract… just in case, you know?) and THREE marque players, that’s, yes, the best part of 50 mil, sorry. But hell, we got plenty from that TV deal.

    All set.

    Then just sit and… Watch the wave shift.

  • 121 GeordieTwo // Jun 8, 2015 at 6:12 PM

    I’ve got my work gloves ready, my lifting belt, my steel toed boots. I’m working out regularly so I can lift the silverware. I feel good, I look good, I’m ready for this position!!! Don’t let me down mates. Write in and tell Mike I’m the man for the job!!! Huzzah!!!

  • 122 cyprus // Jun 8, 2015 at 6:13 PM

    you know anything about set plays?

  • 123 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Jun 8, 2015 at 6:15 PM

    Set plays? G2 knows nothing about set plays. Kicking the ball to Williamson 100% of the time is not an easy skill to teach or learn.

  • 124 ToonFromLeeds // Jun 8, 2015 at 6:15 PM

    Cyprus Bill Oddie knows more about set plays than piggin John Carver

  • 125 GeordieTwo // Jun 8, 2015 at 6:15 PM

    Did I mention I know how to lift silverware properly Mike? With the legs, not the back. I look very manly lifting silverware as well. The sweat glistening on my chest hair. Nostrils fully flared. Muscles rippling as I stride down the hall to the trophy cabinet. Beautiful.

  • 126 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Jun 8, 2015 at 6:18 PM

    I just don’t think G2 has it in him. Is he manly enough to teach colback to kick the ball to willo? Can he make him do it on every corner or free kick? No, i think G2 would crumble, and end up telling someone to shoot, or even pass it to anothwr player other than willo. We could end up looking at a situation where goals may be scored. Unacceptable.

  • 127 cyprus // Jun 8, 2015 at 6:18 PM

    G2, here’s a picture of our incoming silverware. You don’t need weight lifting… but do you know much about table setting etiquette

  • 128 GeordieTwo // Jun 8, 2015 at 6:18 PM

    You mean you want me handle set plays as well as silverware cyprus mate? Well, Harrumph, I used to train Messi to take set pieces. If we get Gizzle I can probably give him some pointers when I’m not busy putting away the new silverware…..Very well, I accept your offer kind sir!!!

  • 129 mickalfas // Jun 8, 2015 at 7:04 PM

    We need Paul McKenna in charge of transfers ,its the only way anyone with half a brain would join this circus
    Him and coco the fcuking clown to run the club
    Mcclaren if you have any sense ,don’t sign!!
    Ashley and penfold out NOW!!!

  • 130 Angryman the Angry fan // Jun 9, 2015 at 7:32 AM

    Newcastle Keen on Messi and Ronaldo no doubt but won’t do much about it if they are asking over 10m

  • 131 Lynxie // Jun 9, 2015 at 10:59 AM

    “Valencia, Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are all seriously following him
    Now I have read this a hundred times, and at no time, NOT ONCE, is Newcastle United mentioned.
    So, your sources please, or stick to the facts, and not a drug enhanced imagination.

  • 132 Lynxie // Jun 9, 2015 at 11:02 AM

    Paul Scharner is interesting Newcastle United.
    In a parallel universe(which exists only in Ketsy’s brain), Paul Scharner of No One Cares FC, is said to be attracting admiring glances from Ed Harrison and Ketsbaia, for no apparent reason whatsoever, certainly not for his availability nor his ability..
