Newcastle Keen On Dutch International Winger


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 – 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.

    Never heard of him.

    Next.

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

    65 PL out of contract players, I would take:

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

    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

    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.

    Rotonda,

    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.

    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.

    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”.

    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.

    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.

    Rotondo,
    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.

    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.”

    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?

    If he can play well until Xmas sounds perfect, sign him up.

    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.
