Newcastle Could Make Move For Reading Winger

4:37 pm, Friday, June 12th, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 188 Comments

19 year-old Reading winger Tarique Fosu, who has played for the England U18 side seems to be attracting the attention of some Premier League clubs, with Newcastle one of the clubs said to be interested in signing the youngster, who becomes a free agent at the end of the month.

Tarique Fosu – Reading’s 19 year-old winger

He may be a free agent but Newcastle would have to pay Reading some compensation since he is under 24, but he could be one for Peter Beardsley’s Development squad for nest season.

Fosu made his debut for the Reading first team at the beginning of May in their very last game of the season, which was the 3-0 win at Derby County and was responsible for  Steve McClaren’s side dropping to 8th place in the Championship and out of the play-off picture.

Tarique looks to have a very bright future ahead of him – and of course Newcastle will be looking to bring in a number of younger players for the Development squad this summer, as well as six or seven top players.

And we saw last season with Ayoze Perez – if you are good enough at Newcastle you will get your first team chance.

Newcastle, Aston Villa and West Brom are said to be the interested Premier League clubs after the youngster, and he tweeted this a few weeks ago on his Twitter account.

Newcastle need to snap up some top youngsters in England this summer – and Tarique could be one of them.

Comments welcome.

    Even after today. Who’s worse? It or them lol.

    Baa baa black and white sheep do you have any cups?

  • 27 Tsunki // Jun 12, 2015 at 4:55 PM

    Hmm. Silence of the Lambs eh?

  • 28 croftus5678 // Jun 12, 2015 at 4:57 PM

    cisse will be staying imo and i cant say i’m sad about it either as he has been the only tried and tested striker we have.

    even with austin/arma/perez i think he’s more than usefull to us for next season.

    arma imo should go out on loan and leave perez as our current dev player breaking into the team for when cisse leaves next season then perez will be more established and arma can be the dev player breaking into the team.

  • 29 optimistic prime // Jun 12, 2015 at 4:57 PM

    I haven’t kept up today and things are afoot.

    Has Welcher changed his name?

    What’s been going on?

    not a right lot tbh OP

    Haha football fwiend!

    Welshie
    Just the one though isnt it…of the worst cup available where u beat Brentford in the final but hey better than us mianly because we dont even pretend to try in cups

  • 32 dok - the horrid colonial // Jun 12, 2015 at 5:02 PM

    my American calendar say its sheep’s head day in wales… so im being supportive without judgment lol…

    I assume it means be kind to your sheep, and welshies mouth is full… 🙂

  • 33 bettyswallocks // Jun 12, 2015 at 5:02 PM

    Welsh………. I know you are totally sick and tired of being referred to as a sheep shagger.

    If you hate it that much , just stop doing it.

  • 34 croftus5678 // Jun 12, 2015 at 5:04 PM

    my picks for strikers would be ;

    austin (ahead of dost because he’s english)
    dost
    berahino

    and i can only see one of them coming in as i doubt river/goofy/cisse will go.

    as for wingers i hope sammy doesnt sign tbh as i dont rate him good enough or if he does sign send him straight out on loan.

    i’d take;

    ince (again english,young,talented and would work very well with rolando)
    redmond
    thurvin (highly doubtfull as value too high after his drop of form)
    juanmi (last resort imo as a lot better than ober + co but not as good as rolando imo)

    nice big solid cb’s please after the first striker.

  • 35 Welshie's Sheep // Jun 12, 2015 at 5:04 PM

    We beat Bradford u gimp

    Fosu is the type of player we need to win things. The sooner we win something the sooner the owner will sod off. Now win something.

    you’d better not be telling porkies !

    i can take little white lies all the time but where mike leaving is concerned it’d be far too cruel to get the fans hopes up with something like that.

  • 42 Welshie's Sheep // Jun 12, 2015 at 5:12 PM

    Ahem Welshie my boy we are REIGNING bank balance champions

    Plus we have a little bit of history in winning trophies, now yes it is history, past tense, but hey history is remembered….does Swansea have a history of winning trophies? I shall have a little look give me 5 minutes

  • 47 croftus5678 // Jun 12, 2015 at 5:16 PM

    @44 tfl

    sweet if that is the case even though we’ve lost him it’s like a new signing for us 😉

    just colo/ober/goofy/anita/sammy/good/river to go and replace and i’ll be happy 🙂

  • 48 Welshie's Sheep // Jun 12, 2015 at 5:18 PM

  • 50 dok - the horrid colonial // Jun 12, 2015 at 5:20 PM

    to be fair to welshie, after his inflatable girlfriend commited hari kari with a safety pin, all he has is his sheeplove…

  • 51 dok - the horrid colonial // Jun 12, 2015 at 5:21 PM

  • 83 croftus5678 // Jun 12, 2015 at 5:53 PM

    @81 tfl

    there was james chester and micah richards (who is reportedly a done done at villa) also but i suppose we are expecting a bit much.

    if we was looking at cb’s i’m sure we’d be crying we need a striker as priority.

    i just hope its not a cover story and we are really after them and not trying to haggle them down too much that we lose out on them and other targets.

  • 98 GeordieTwo // Jun 12, 2015 at 6:12 PM

    So when does the rest of the clear out get underway Steve? The dead wood has really piled up with idiots running the club for 8 years now. Lots to do Steve. How long is it going to take before you realize Ashley is a born liar Steve? Probably some time during your first conversation with him. Oh and by the way don’t ask for any money for new players. You didn’t buy that bunk about the “football” board deciding who comes in did you?

  • 99 bettyswallocks // Jun 12, 2015 at 6:13 PM

    Yes that’s right Steve, the only person who decides what gets spent at the club is, you guessed it Mike Ashley. The rest is just a charade. Mike will decide how big the transfer budget is. Don’t get excited about the quality of players to be brought in mates. It will be much the same as previously. One decent center back and one decent striker, and a bunch of kids as usual.

  • 108 GeordieTwo // Jun 12, 2015 at 6:25 PM

    Oh and forget that bollocks about top 10 in Europe Steve. If we finish in the top 10 in the Prem after 2 years with you as head coach that will be considered an outstanding achievement by Mike (but don’t get us into the Europa league!). Nobody buys it. We’ve had nothing but brown stuff for 8 years now. All you provide Steve is a smokescreen so people keep renewing their season’s tickets. Ashley out.

  • 109 ToonFromLeeds // Jun 12, 2015 at 6:27 PM

  • 112 GeordieTwo // Jun 12, 2015 at 6:34 PM

    No, just realistic TFL mate. It’s important to see through the smokescreen. I do think we will improve under McLaren. How could we not? We had a head coach who won 3 games out of 20 with Carver. So if McLaren sticks to his overall wining percentage of around 45% we might win about 15 games next season. With a few draws that would produce 50-55 points. Nothing wrong with that to keep us in the Prem. But top 10 in Europe? Winning silverware? Absolute bollocks.

  • 115 lesh // Jun 12, 2015 at 6:39 PM

    Given the number of players we’re supposedly interested in or negotiating for, I wonder if our so-called Board appreciate that as far a ST holders are concerned, Carver out for McLaren in is only one part of the incentive for renewing tickets.

    We ain’t seen any players coming in yet and such activity might just be the catalyst that persuades fans to commit their cash?

    Oh, and they’ll be properly pi$$ed off if good players are sold.

    Come on Charnley, you’re the MD, get moving for players before fans’ good-will disappears altogether!

    I don’t blame you at all TFL mate. I hope I’m wrong as well. But we do have 8 years of history to learn from. Still a 55 point season would be a breath of fresh air wouldn’t it?

    As for silverware, well that’s an exciting area that Mike is now investigating. Harrumph. Bringing me in as Head of Silverware was Mike’s best move ever. I’m already looking into every aspect of the coming avalanche of trophies. From shipping and receiving, to unpacking, to polishing, to expansion of the silverware cabinet. Beautiful. Jackie Milburn would be so proud.

  • 121 Welshie's Sheep // Jun 12, 2015 at 6:45 PM

  • 122 GeordieTwo // Jun 12, 2015 at 6:46 PM

    Possibly we should send Mike some pictures of Jackie holding up actual trophies, actually won by Newcastle United lads? He could plaster the walls of the castle with them.

  • 131 Blackley and Brownlie // Jun 12, 2015 at 6:55 PM

    Since there’s nothing but wild speculation about transfers on this blog, Old Blackley brings you some hard news. A deer went into a shop in Heaton the other day. The Geordie shopworker interviewed on the radio said its not often we get a deer in the shop.

    Hahahahahahahahahah. It’s not often we get a deer in the shop. You couldn’t make it up.

    If you don’t think it’s funny it’s because you don’t know that Heaton is an urban area (Newcastle east). If you still don’t think it’s funny it’s because you haven’t imagined the Geordie voice of a dim shopkeeper. If you still don’t think it’s funny it’s because you have a crap sense of humour. What do you reckon, Welshie?

  • 132 GeordieTwo // Jun 12, 2015 at 6:56 PM

    Aye optimate I watched the season go by. It was like watching a slow motion train wreck with Carver as the conductor. Good day to you as well BigB mate. Yes we may well starve to death while Ashley is with us. McLaren should help take our minds off last season though.

  • 133 GeordieTwo // Jun 12, 2015 at 6:58 PM

    Yes, from what I hear the welsh think lambs can be dead sexy if you dress them up properly welshie.

  • 134 WWSBRD // Jun 12, 2015 at 6:58 PM

    Not sure it’s really bullying. Yes in the past there has been an air of that here and there against people for their opinions this though I’d say this is not similar

    This is rather a reaction to a long standing trolling venture…more those affected standing up and saying no more

    Personally I have had discussions in the past with Welshie boy when he offered more opinions than “Swanseas better than Newcastle” however those days seem to of drifted off into the beyond by all accounts

    Nay I say this is not bullying

  • 135 Welshie's Sheep // Jun 12, 2015 at 6:58 PM

  • 137 bettyswallocks // Jun 12, 2015 at 7:01 PM

    I do have a bit of an axe to grind as my holiday home was burnt down by Welsh Nationalists. Quite surprising actually being as it was in Spain.

  • 138 GeordieTwo // Jun 12, 2015 at 7:02 PM

    We were lost everywhere on the pitch wdftta mate. Playing Riviere, Cisse and Armstrong would be a disaster. McLaren won’t do that. Cisse still likes spitting on people, Riviere couldn’t hit a barn door, and Armstrong hasn’t proven he can play in the Prem. No, we need a lot more than one new striker. And a lot more than a couple of players elsewhere. This will be a multi-season rebuild with Ashley in charge if it ever happens at all. Ashley tends to sell players before or at their peak so there is never time to actually win anything.

  • 139 kevymartins // Jun 12, 2015 at 7:02 PM

    Just reading the comments on Bas Dost people saying “have you actually seen him playing?” He is Shyte he plays like Peter Crouch. Well I can tell you now I have seen him play a lot and he defiantly is not “shyte” nor does he play like Peter crouch, he is very good elegant and I would compare him more with Oliver Giroud than Peter Crouch. Now that being said I do not think he would get the service he is getting at nufc so would much rather have Austin that knows the very few chances he will get he will have to score like he did with qpr. Now onto berahino I don’t actually know how you guys even rate him. Now he is shyte and light weight and trust me if he joined us he would be behind Ayoze Perez who’s is 10 times the player. Perez beats him in every aspect of the game.

  • 140 GeordieTwo // Jun 12, 2015 at 7:04 PM

    The welsh often get confused about where they are bettyswallocks mate. I’m not surprised they blundered into Spain. They were probably trying to find Italy.

  • 141 kevymartins // Jun 12, 2015 at 7:08 PM

    Sadio Berahino = typicall English player over hyped.

    Any Arsenal fan would tell you they would rather have signed Javier Hernandez over Danny Welbeck any day of the week just saying the same wellbeck that went for £15m and the same Hernandez that is said to be up for grabs for £8m

  • 142 Blackley and Brownlie // Jun 12, 2015 at 7:08 PM

    Any wild speculation on who will be fool enough to take Rivi and Cabella off our hands, Ed? If Palace paid us good money for Percy, anything’s possible in football.

  • 143 Riviere Run Dry // Jun 12, 2015 at 7:10 PM

    Bas Dost is a crap Van Nistelrooy. Does nothing but score tap-ins and the occasional header if he’s unchallenged. Austin better in every department.

  • 144 Riviere Run Dry // Jun 12, 2015 at 7:11 PM

    Wouldn’t have Berahino for £10m, never mind £20m.

  • 145 Blackley and Brownlie // Jun 12, 2015 at 7:13 PM

    Ed, old Blackley’s bored today. He misses all your articles in which, no matter what the topic, a good few paragraphs were dedicated to traducing JC, highlighting his abysmal record.

  • 146 bettyswallocks // Jun 12, 2015 at 7:13 PM

    A sign of a changing world at the Wales match tonight.

  • 148 GeordieTwo // Jun 12, 2015 at 7:19 PM

    How many cones can a man buy with a £500k pay off? How far would they stretch end to end? Where’s the Leagues best coach going to rock up next? Just some of the questions old Blackley finds himself musing over as the rest of you compile your NUFC fantasy teams from the 100 players we’re linked with every day.

    Darlow (Krul leaves in disgust)
    Janmaat Lascelles Colo Haidara
    Cabella De Jong Sissoko Aarons

    Beautiful. Top 10 in Europe is in the bag lads.

  • 162 Blackley and Brownlie // Jun 12, 2015 at 7:38 PM

    Not only does the cones guy get a massive pay off but he’ll never be out of a job with all the road works on the A1 alone.

  • 163 GeordieTwo // Jun 12, 2015 at 7:38 PM

    I’m not sure we can afford Juanmi though. Harrumph.

  • 164 GeordieTwo // Jun 12, 2015 at 7:39 PM

    Personally, I can’t wait for Percy vs. the Wally.

  • 165 GeordieTwo // Jun 12, 2015 at 7:40 PM

    No, relations are pretty much normal Toon Tang mate. Why do you ask?

    Well as old philosopher Blackley said at 142 above, anything’s possible in football.

    Are you sure the vacancy isn’t for head cones manager? For the car park?

    RRD,
    I don’t think you have any right to slate other posters, even Blackley considering you’re hiding behind a new username.

  • 171 LGFUAD21 // Jun 12, 2015 at 7:50 PM

    Please refrain from feeding the troll.

    Thauvin is hugely overrated. At least Cabella had two stellar seasons before we signed him.

    Thauvin has been that perennial young kid with tricks and potential but has never lived up to it.

    Funny as I remember Jean michael Aulas saying that if thauvin was worth 15m (what Marseille signed him for) then Grenier is worth at least 20m.

    I do like the though of ince. Don’t understand what agent Steve was trying with him at hull. Gave him 3 starts including as a striker.

    I thought he was overrated at Blackpool but I think his direct style could be an asset in a 433 that mcclaren likes.

    I like that he is an inside forward rather than a winger meaning he potentially has goals and Lord knows we need to start getting a better spread of goals rather than relying on 1 or 2 players.

    Austin for me is a million miles better than Berahino (who will be overpriced) or carroll.

    Austins got that true grit a newcastle no 9 needs.

    YouTube arsenal Marseille and you’ll see probably his best performance ever (and he was mugging them off)

    Cabella is pants mate, as for that you tube clip against Arsenal, my only issue with that is Arsenal are probably the least combative/physical team in the prem….A class team but they won’t batter you hard with physicality. The other clubs in the league aren’t like Arsenal.

    All boycott plans have been mothballed indefinitely. A fresh breeze of renewed optimism has swept across the blog. Many long time malcontents are now happily compiling their fantasy NUFC teams to start the season based on nothing more than Mr Ashley’s inspired words, new faces in the boardroom and the departure of the cones guy. Come and join the party and share your hopes and wishes.

    Brings back memories of Supermac in full flight carrying Coin Waldren on his back to score.
