Newcastle In Advanced Talks For This Excellent Striker


It looks like Chelsea’s Patrick Bamford is not interested in joining Newcastle on a one year loan deal, and he wants to stay at Chelsea and fight for his place there.

It could also be that Patrick didn’t like being played out on the wing when he was on loan at Derby County last season, under new Newcastle head coach Steve McClaren.

Bas Dost could be arriving at Newcastle
We hope he will be arriving at Newcastle

Newcastle seem to be struggling to sign some of our top targets, with Chelsea now favored to move in and sign our top target Charlie Austin, but there’s some positive news in the Chronicle today that Newcastle are in advanced talk with Wolfsburg for Bas Dost.

There hasn’t been too much news about Dost over the last few days, and that could be good news as hopefully Newcastle are working feverishly to get a deal completed for the giant 6’5″ striker, who would be a great addition to the Newcastle strike force.

There is a report in Dutch Paper AD that Bayern Munich have inquired about the striker, but Newcastle can offer Dost a starting position on Tyneside, which he would not get in Munich, and he wants to be playing regularly next season to get into the Dutch squad for Euro 2016 in France next summer.

And if we can get Dost in then we could always keep Papiss Cisse, if we cannot get another striker in.

Papiss is finally fully fit following his knee-cap fracture of fourteen months ago,  and Papiss was in excellent goal scoring form for us  last season.

Add to him young Ayoze Perez and Emmanuel Riviere,  and there’s four very decent strikers – much better than the players we had available last season.

And we still think 25 year-old Riviere has a good chance to come through on Tyneside, and he’s a hard-working player and will be a better player because of his experiences of last season.

The French U21 International missed a number of chances – including four in that final game against West Ham – but he got himself into position and all he needs is some goals to raise his confidence a bit.

There’s still lots of time for Newcastle to get players in this summer of course, and not many clubs have signed any players this summer up to this point.

Although it’s also true that this is a much more important transfer window for Newcastle United than for most other Premier League teams.

No other Premier League club lost nine of their last eleven league games, and went from 9th top to 4th bottom before our final game.

There’s still time and there’s still hope for Newcastle United.

Howay The Lads!!

    Dost is useless. No pace. Defenders will no fear him. If this is the best we can do, we’re in big trouble. Better off bringing back Ba.

    If we’re having a movie day the master multiple Jeffrey could do a film all by himself, the Fantastic 4

    Stretch Armstrong, most of what he says is a stretch of the imagination.

    The invisible girl, nuff said about Jane

    The thing, ye most see him as a thing from another planet.

    The human torch, he’d need a new persona for this one as nothing he says is enlightening.

    What’s the betting that we get to transfer deadline day without a single signing having sold Sissoko, Tiote and Krul etc.

    The only flaw in the Identity film is that (spoiler alert! ) although like Jeff they are all in his head, There’s no John Cusack character in his world.

    Maybe our new coach just took the slot since he was out of work. He now finds no coaches or players will come to Newcastle. This is tragic…..NUFC must look to the unemployed to field a squad.

    It’s funny how that the few left out there that seem to justify and defend whatever bizarre actions ‘The Board’ decide to take, when told that the scouting process is over a lengthy period of time and that the ‘Head coach’ doesn’t get the final say, proclaim what a great idea that is. Now that we are waiting for what seems an eternity for a much needed signing those very same people are saying the ‘Head Coach’ needs to make the decision despite the ‘The Board’ going to great lengths that it doesn’t work that way. The regimes defenders seem just as confused as to what policy to defend than the idiots making it all up.
