Newcastle Have New Center-Back Target At £10M

6:37 pm, Saturday, June 20th, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 235 Comments

New today that Newcastle want to sign 6’4″ center-back Joel Matip of Schalke, and Joel who was born in Germany to a German mother and a Cameroonian father, and he has played 26 times for Cameroon.

Joel Matip 23 year-old 6’4″ defender

McClaren has a short spell at Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga so he may have watched the big Schalke defender a few times.

The news is in the German magazine Bild, and they are reporting Matip is now Steve McClaren’s top priority and that Newcastle are willing to pay €14M for the 23 year-old,  who can also play as a defensive midfielder.

€14M is just a little less that £10M with today’s exchange rate.

Bild are reporting that McClaren has made his own inquiries to his contacts in Germany about the defender, and he has asked various people who  know the player various questions.

What’s his best position, does he have a good character, and would he be a good player in the physical Premier League, are three of the questions mentioned.

Matip has been at Schalke since 2000, when he signed on for them as a 9 year-old, and he has only one year to run on his contract, with no signs that he wants to sign an extension.

So this summer (or January) would be a time for the Bundesliga club to cash in on him before he becomes a free agent, although they would still be due some compensation next summer.

Matip made his first team debut for Schalke back in November of 2009 as an 18 year-old against Bayern Munich, and since then he’s appeared 211 times for the club with 18 goals.

Germany were keen for him to play for them but Matip decided he wanted to play for Cameroon, and he made his debut for the African side in a friendly against Italy in March, 2010.

Matip was in the Cameroon squad for both the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa as a 19 year-old, and in last year’s World Cup in Brazil.

He would seem to be a good buy for Newcastle, and we would assume he would assume he’s be brough in as a center-back next season if we can him across the line.

The fact he can also play in defensive midfield is another plus.

What do you think?

Comments welcome.

    That’s far too much money for us to spend on one player. He’ll have to agree to pay half of it back to the club from his wages. And his wages will be low so it will take a very long time. Lee is so clever with the add on clauses.

  • 2 Tsunki // Jun 20, 2015 at 6:41 PM

    Welcome one and all to Repostville!

    On a serious note Riviere’s work apart from his actual getting the round thing into the stringy thing is pretty good and he does help to create some nuisance to the opposing defence. He seems strong and positionally he shows the right instincts. His control isn’t bad either. Apart from when he enters the antimagnetic 6 yard box thing. If he could actually score a goal or two with his foot or head we’d think an awful lot better of him

  • 3 ilovetoon8788 // Jun 20, 2015 at 6:42 PM

    We can’t even get Austin. Dream on for matip. Lascelles is a new signing. There will be no new centre backs signed.

  • 4 Welshie's Sheep // Jun 20, 2015 at 6:43 PM

    He’ll come to Swansea too

  • 5 Jib // Jun 20, 2015 at 6:44 PM

    Matip’s agent is Alexander Schutt and every time we are linked with a player in the Bundesliga they seem to be one of Alexander’s,
    Cynique ?
    Moi ?
    Jamais !!!!

  • 6 Lee Charnley Bunga Party // Jun 20, 2015 at 6:44 PM

    This boy looks pretty decent if we got him and Dunk with Lascalles and Dummett that would do me for next season

    Then buy a new left back as well

  • 7 Tsunki // Jun 20, 2015 at 6:44 PM

    Are we REALLY after him, or anyone else of note? Is McLaren really identifying players to buy without his trusted team of advisors gathered to his side? Maybe Ed should put out all his articles with two polls on them, one being a yes / no vote for suitability of the player, the second for likelihood we will get him. There’s an idea Ed.

  • 8 Lee Charnley Bunga Party // Jun 20, 2015 at 6:44 PM

    Sorry meant that would do me for defence !! We still need midfielders and strikers by the bucketload

  • 9 Belfast // Jun 20, 2015 at 6:46 PM

    Hi Skunki

    Regarding the Pokat thing a few threads ago. Yep your name is now muck. The Pokat experiment blew up in your face.

    I still think you’re a decent bloke (sometimes)

  • 10 WWSBRD // Jun 20, 2015 at 6:50 PM

    How is this a new link? We heard this weeks ago

  • 11 Tsunki // Jun 20, 2015 at 6:50 PM

    I know defence has been the big gaping issue but for me I agree with a few posters on here that midfield is the most important issue by a country mili. We’ve had the worst, most uncreative mid for years now, no service forward making our strikers frustrated and look terrible, and no cohesion to cover the back line leaving our vulnerabilities ( Willo and the lb’s) horrendously exposed. The inept tactical fudging of Pardew and his crew merely disguised this by randomly shuffling our team around game by game.

    We need a new approach to a creative midfield with a proper enforcer in the middle to glue it together.

  • 12 Jail for Ashley // Jun 20, 2015 at 6:51 PM

    I’d be over the moon if we signed a quality CB, although admittedly I’ve never heard of this fella except for on here.

  • 13 Belfast // Jun 20, 2015 at 6:51 PM

    Swansea paid Ayew a 5.7 million sign on fee. Wow.

  • 14 Tsunki // Jun 20, 2015 at 6:51 PM

    Belfast. I’ve ‘ad worse. What’s done is done.

  • 15 Jail for Ashley // Jun 20, 2015 at 6:53 PM

    Belfast,
    I once started a bring back Tsunki campaign once, did I get any thanks, no, then he goes and does a multiple.

  • 16 Welshie's Sheep // Jun 20, 2015 at 6:54 PM

    Thats because the mighty Swans want to sign quality players who will win us the league

  • 17 Jail for Ashley // Jun 20, 2015 at 6:55 PM

  • 18 Tsunki // Jun 20, 2015 at 6:55 PM

    Jail I missed the campaign because I really wasn’t going to come back. Then I had this great idea…….thanks for the thought though. Although what’s that you’re holding behind your back?

  • 19 Jib // Jun 20, 2015 at 6:56 PM

    This is Bas Dost’s agents

    I would take him even though he is 30

  • 20 Tsunki // Jun 20, 2015 at 6:58 PM

    When Beattie did it it was funny, everyone laughed HA HA HA THAT WAS FUNNY Beattie they said whoever they were. But I do it and OWN UP mind you, not just found out, well…. it’s not fair. Just not fair.

    Where is Beattie by the way? He’s not here as someone else all this time is he?

  • 21 Jail for Ashley // Jun 20, 2015 at 6:59 PM

    Tsunki,
    A pair of scissors, and the bring back Tsunki campaign was way before your diabolical pokat experiment.

    Matip is wonderful on football manager if that helps

  • 28 Tsunki // Jun 20, 2015 at 7:07 PM

    Belfast actually that’s a scary likeness I have a white shirt as well and glasses and the same…. hair…. but of course I’m stunningly handsome whereas that guy sorry sorry fellow is just average. I’m worried your Jesper one is also close to the mark though.

  • 29 Jib // Jun 20, 2015 at 7:07 PM

    Tudor crisps
    Kinda funny that
    One problem
    Charnley has a quite pronounced Burnley accent.

  • 30 Wandering Geordie // Jun 20, 2015 at 7:08 PM

    Matip was at Darlington 1995-97 then Newton Aycliffe we could have had him for nothing had our scouting system had been working

  • 38 Tsunki // Jun 20, 2015 at 7:18 PM

    No belfast I think Jespers demeanour has definitely soured at your merciless hands. Lost in translation isn’t the half of it. 🙂 you’ve knocked all the innocence out of him ha ha. To think you give me hell for Pokat but you’ve wrecked that kid and somehow you’re still walking free. it’s just not fair.

  • 45 Belfast // Jun 20, 2015 at 7:30 PM

    Was Pokat around when Ibiza went all William Wallace ?

    I actually think when Pokat started arguing with Blackley pretty early on, I thought It could be somebodies new name. It never crossed my mind it was you though.

  • 46 croftus5678 // Jun 20, 2015 at 7:31 PM

    anyone else get the feeling we wont sign anyone ?

  • 47 Tsunki // Jun 20, 2015 at 7:34 PM

    William Wallace ha ha or a very angry smurf!

    Pokat is my curse. Talk about me and my shadow

  • 48 Belfast // Jun 20, 2015 at 7:34 PM

    Nothing to do with me.

    cisse is now fully recovered,theres not many better finishers than him around at the minute cant believe people want austin and think 15 million is an ok price then sell paps for 10 million are you for real,perez is top draw and will only get better,rivs has had a bad time but will come good, best of all the new coach will set up and encourage them to play to their strengths ,carver is highly thought of as a person in the game but some players lost all respect for him as a coach (his own fault) he went for old school management style,we all make mistakes, these players need to be moved on then this club can maybe start rebuilding again

  • 64 Belfast // Jun 20, 2015 at 7:52 PM

    You could be right, though I think most of the accounts that Ian is accused of having all speak very similar.

  • 65 optimistic prime // Jun 20, 2015 at 7:53 PM

    Don’t get me wrong I’m pleased we escaped relegation, but we don’t really belong in the premier league under this current regime. We’re still a business first so Mash still wants value for money, so the going rate for quality is too much.
    We’d be better off in the championship were we could compete on and off the field.

  • 74 lesh // Jun 20, 2015 at 8:02 PM

    Let’s not waste time on the players and backroom staff who’ve turned us down and cut to the quick.

    If Ashley wants to deliver in his promises, he’s got an MD who can deliver – clearly Charnley can’t.

    Charnley’s out of his depth!

  • 102 Jail for Ashley // Jun 20, 2015 at 8:52 PM

    Maybe five players signed this window, bearing in mind another four will have to leave as Jonas and RTaylor have already gone. If the new players are getting paid on average 25K a week, that’s over half a million pounds saved saved by getting them next month, brilliant !

  • 103 Tsunki // Jun 20, 2015 at 8:53 PM

    Yay! Jesper! Yeah I thought you were biting your tongue a bit I thought I said something out of turn, seeing as I’ve obviously rubbed a few up the wrong way of late I thought I’d wind my neck back in a bit. This is the new, contrite Tsunki! Better than the old Tsunki, not to be confused with the inferior Pokat! Washes whiter etc.

  • 104 lochinvar // Jun 20, 2015 at 8:53 PM

    If we sign Das Bost at 6’5″ and Matip at 6’4″ do you think we might score a header from a corner ?

    That’s easy. I was at the match when I heard about it.

    Benteke might fetch £12m but I wouldn’t like to pay that. There are some people in football who thought Carroll was worth £35m and Torres £50m! It’s crazy. To want to spend £32.5m for Benteke is up with that. Dear me, Negatron.

  • 118 optimistic prime // Jun 20, 2015 at 9:06 PM

    Austin to West ham, Carroll to us? I’d be devastated if this were to happen. I get the sneaky feeling NUFC do not want to go over 10m for a striker.

    Making me think, has anything changed with the recruitment policies? Bahhh.

    Where is this list of targets JC had seen months ago? They should be well underway by now.

    And Old Blackley thought the tea boy and the comedian’s dad were incompetent. That’s a comic statement if ever there was one. O dear me. It’s a good job the fans don’t own the club. Here’s £32.5m for Benteke. I dont care about the price. He’s better than Cisse.

    I think most would replace ST in a heartbeat, he contributes very little with his injury problems.

    I’m not so sure. Taylor is like Bramble. Crazy at times. Drives me mental with his antics. But this new lad from Forest didn’t look too clever when I’ve seen him and I’m not expecting much, knowing the tea boy and the comedian’s dad. So Taylor might be the better bet.

    The best I seen us play that season we finished fifth was the day we lost 0-3 against Chelsea and STaylor went off injured at the end, that and the 4-2 hammering off of Norwich done nothing to disuade ‘The Board’ that we needed a new CB immediately, nobody realised at the time that that after 11 games in we were probably safe and that the season was written off, Cisse was signed not for CL qualification but because he was meant to be sold for 15+ very shortly after.

    It will aye, both should be away. I think they will want ST off the wage bill anyway as he is on a canny wage apparantly, he’s been here since the academy.

    No doubt they would love to keep Willo though to fill one of the 25 because he is on alot lower wages I bet.

    For me, It’s all to do with wages this carry on, when it should be quality brought into the squad first and foremost regardless of wages. Have we even got a player on 80 grand a week?

  • 154 Tsunki // Jun 20, 2015 at 9:57 PM

    Belfast you better be glad you just better.

    Saylor is ok when he’s not injured, and has had a decent run of games in an otherwise solid defence. He’s a bit of a head banger but he should get more slack for just passion alone. He may be nuts but he’s nufc nuts, should count for something.

    I’m not that concerned about the inactivity in the market, I said at end of season it’d be around 4wks before any movement started.

    I’d have thought he’d had his staff sorted by now, it doesn’t fill people with confidence when papers are claiming this one and that one have knocked the job back. How much of that is true is anyone’s guess but I’d still like to have it sorted.

    For Schteeve to get his philosophy ingrained in the players he needs them ASAP, that included the ones already at the club. The more time he has to work with them the better IMO.

    I’d like to think main targets will be signed to arrive on July first ready to go, but I’m a fool NUFC don’t play that way.

    It’s not just NUFC who’s signed no one. Chris Powell also has problems getting players over the line.

    “We have made some headway but, of course, you want to get them over the line with medicals done and everything agreed – and we are not at that stage yet.

    “There has been a lot of dialogue but, like a lot of clubs at present, we are waiting for people to return.

    “That’s when the movement tends to start and, hopefully, our fans will see some movement from us and we can get some players across the line.

    “We definitely need to after rebuilding the squad through last season. We need to boost our numbers ready for the coming season.”

    I dont understand why the Ashley does,nt grasp it .
    All he has to do is splash a bit cash on some decent players and the majority of fans will toe the line and buy his S.T.s.

  • 208 Ibizatoon // Jun 20, 2015 at 11:26 PM

    OP…I wouldn’t say I was concerned either, was more to do with trying to gather some momentum.

    A lot is being left to the imagination. Given the last 8 years and overwhelming lack of faith, I just would have thought they’d have something prepared. Then again, I don’t often see eye to eye with NUFCs PR policies these days.

  • 209 Ibizatoon // Jun 20, 2015 at 11:28 PM

    Blackley…Sounds like he’s begging for a job at NUFC.

  • 210 Average_Contents // Jun 20, 2015 at 11:29 PM

    Definitely far too busy for the likes of you 😀

  • 211 Ibizatoon // Jun 20, 2015 at 11:32 PM

    Please tell me you’re not still here waiting for someone to ask you to stay?

    Go on Mr Busy, f*** off 🙂

  • 212 Blackley and Brownlie // Jun 20, 2015 at 11:40 PM

    Ibiza
    It’s the same everywhere – generally.

  • 213 Average_Contents // Jun 20, 2015 at 11:41 PM

    Nar, just getting pissed lol

  • 214 optimistic prime // Jun 20, 2015 at 11:42 PM

    Just thinking of past transfers and I think Rob Lee was our best pound for pound player. A steal at half a mil considering prices these days.

    Thinking of Lee made me think if the collision he had with Shearer, it was brutal. Shearer came back on but I don’t think Lee did. When you consider how they roll around now it’s like a different game.

  • 215 Ibizatoon // Jun 20, 2015 at 11:43 PM

    Blackley…Apart from the places it isn’t.

    I’m sure all will be fine. Steve and Bob will sort the other two out whilst Ashley provides the money.

  • 216 jane // Jun 20, 2015 at 11:45 PM

    just read this on Rob Lee’s Wikipedia page..

    “He moved to Newcastle after their manager, Kevin Keegan, told him that Newcastle upon Tyne was closer to London than Middlesbrough, the other club interested in signing Lee, and who were already in the Premier League.”

  • 217 Ibizatoon // Jun 20, 2015 at 11:46 PM

    AC…A going away party? As long as you don’t start sobbering and going on about how much you’ll miss us.

    OP…A lot of money involved these days. Don’t want peoples investments, I mean players getting crocked. Well, we do obviously, cheaper that way.

    Sorry, old habits etc.

  • 218 jane // Jun 20, 2015 at 11:48 PM

    “I’m sure all will be fine.”

    exactly not sure what all the fuss is about 🙂

  • 219 Ibizatoon // Jun 20, 2015 at 11:49 PM

    jane…I may even go as far to say what could go wrong?

    No seriosuly, should we do a list?

  • 220 jane // Jun 20, 2015 at 11:50 PM

    plenty could go wrong but we are going to be positive 🙂

  • 221 optimistic prime // Jun 20, 2015 at 11:53 PM

    If it isn’t fine it could be the perfect storm, there’ll be some awesome waves to ride.

  • 222 Ibizatoon // Jun 20, 2015 at 11:53 PM

    How many of you are there? Just wondering as we’re about to cut ACs cake. But don’t tell him, it’s a surprise.

  • 223 optimistic prime // Jun 20, 2015 at 11:54 PM

    Do mtiples get more than one piece?

  • 224 jane // Jun 20, 2015 at 11:55 PM

    at least it won’t be dull

  • 225 Ibizatoon // Jun 20, 2015 at 11:56 PM

    Gnarly dude.

    Probably should be bedtime now. Did I manage to type anything legible this evening?

  • 226 optimistic prime // Jun 20, 2015 at 11:56 PM

    If it’s one slice per account I’m making new ones

  • 227 optimistic prime // Jun 20, 2015 at 11:57 PM

    Apart from the football nothing about NUFC is dull

  • 228 Average_Contents // Jun 20, 2015 at 11:58 PM

    I’ll admit, it did and still does sound like I’m leaving forever but I’m really not ibiza. Honestly.

    For your piece of mind I’m going to suggest you go see the doc and request some tramadol mate. Might ease the pain of losing me Lmfco.

    Oh and I’m just waiting for the taxi, otherwise I wouldn’t be replying you fcukface.

    O

    Fcuk ewe very much you fcuking bawlbag

  • 232 Ibizatoon // Jun 21, 2015 at 12:06 AM

    AC…Will you not even consider it? 🙂

    Joking aside, hope all goes well. No doubt you’ll be on soon.

    OP…Imaginary cake, for imaginary people. They can have as much as they like. I wouldn’t want to appear greedy.

    Sleep well blog.

  • 234 Laurent Robert 32 // Jun 21, 2015 at 12:18 AM

    Matip to Newcastle is to stop messing about and sign a number of quality players.

  • 235 vipgreek // Jun 22, 2015 at 1:50 PM

    Signing him means Ashley Spending money do the people who write articles like this must be comedians coz im laughing , dont you guys realise that if he cost 10 million to sign , that is 10 million over priced for Ashley not that it matters as we the supporters are the ones paying as we still buy seasonal tickets , and merchandise . Ashley is going to go shopping in the championship and expect the signings to be ready made
