Newcastle To Bid £8M For Chelsea Striker


The Sun are reporting today that Newcastle will launch a bid for 21 year-old Chelsea striker Patrick Bamford who spent last season on loan at Middlesbrough, where he did very well and in 43 games he scored 19 goals

In the previous season from January of 2014 Patrick was on loan at Derby County and played for Steve McClaren, the Newcastle head coach and in 23 games he scored 8 goals.

Peter Bamford – 21 year-old Chelsea striker

In the first half of that same season he was on loan at MK Dons,  and in 30 games he scored 17 goals, so in that season in various divisions he played 53 games and scored 25 goals.

Patrick’s had three good loan spells over the last two seasons, and the news in the Sun is that Newcastle will bid around £8M for Bamford, in an attempt to get him permanently to Newcastle this summer.

Aitor Karanka’s Middlesbrough only just missed out on promotion last season, and they are also keen to sign the youngster, but with Newcastle interested in taking him to the Premier League it lessens Boro’s chances of signing him.

£8M is a lot for a 21 year-old, but given today’s prices that may not be too high, although he’s unproven at the top level, and it would still be a risk for Newcastle.

Normally in these circumstances, clubs would tend to take the 21 year-old on a season long loan deal, with a chance of signing him at the end of the season – depending on how he does – and that lessens the risk.

But the Sun is reporting Newcastle will now try to sign the Grantham-born youngster permanently this summer.

In all his five loan spells he’s played 112 total games with 48 goals – so he looks like he could turn into a first class striker.

While Bamford says he wants to stay at Chelsea and fight for his place, Jose Mourinho may have other ideas, and Newcastle will test the waters with an £8M bid.

The news is that Newcastle will make every attempt this week to bring some players into the club before the players start returning in stages starting in nine days time.

Maybe Patrick Bamford will be on of them.

What do you think?

    Continuing with the discussion from the previous thread, would it not make sense, in order to try and combat the issue of the top teams buying up young British talent to comply with the homegrown quota, to introduce the purple policy all across the PL?

    What’s that saying about misery loving company?

    I thought he wanted to stay at Chelsea & didn’t want to play for Mcclaren again…Think this one is unlikely.

    I can honestly see us struggling to sign anyone Ashley and Charnley still want to pay bargain basement prices

    Well the new cheap deal is 8 or 10 million not 4 or 5 which we previously used to pay

    You could get Hernandez for about £6M. EPL/La Liga and international experience and goals at all levels

    I don’t feel comfortable posting on here now with jibs, janes , dry rivers, Welshmen and welshmens sheep all clamouring for attention.

    Sad really , there is good input from many posters and genuine passion for our club.
    But how can you work out who s who and what their agenda is.

    Just read the link about the purple players
    The fact that he released a statement about the policy ,shows what utter disregard they had/have for the club
    Scumbags of the highest order
    Hope that cnut doesn’t end up back here now we need a finance director
    With these in charge I’ll be surprised if we get anybody in ffs
    Mcclaren needs to be a man ,speak up and tell them who he wants ,or become part of a bigger problem ,don’t go over to the dark side shteve ffs

    Interesting article in the Independent yesterday and covered later on by the Mag.
    Gist was in respect of the preferred media partner carry-on. The Mirror would not disclose what the arrangements were with the Toon – which left open the possibility that the Mirror might give free advertising to Sports Direct – not not NUFC – despite them being allowed access to the players and fed club stories.
    So there was the suggestion that SD would be benefitting and not the club.
    Really these links with the media are a bad state of affairs.

    I’m with you there mate, been trying to get some footy talk going but as usual the wums and trolls divert the conversation, I used to post regularly on here, but really find it’s not worth the effort.

    My guess is they are mostly Makems, or attention seeking idiots who have nothing better to do with their sad lives.

    One day the blog will be a good place to debate again, but not today.

    Belfast wind it in you troublemaker Pokat came about as a result of this so stop trying to blame it on me! This would have happened anyway and probably Pokat engaging wums robustly probably kept them at bay. The tide is inexorable though. Slow news month and a lot of idle schoolkids and jobless trolls who have nowt better to do.

    austin would be a good signing and worth 15mil imo !

    cant see it happening though as he’s rather stay in london and we cant really offer him anything the likes of west ham ect can.

    lets not waste time far too many times we wait too late and try squabble over pennys for players until all the main targets have gone to other clubs.

    if they want to wait to see what offers come in before they decide lets just move on to someone who wants to sign for us ! we may not get the very best players but at least we will get some players without wasting time on someone we will never get.

    Ah but Mr T you’re wrong there because the preferred media partners illuminate the common man with glorious rays of shining truth! No more random stories of wanting gossip and scurrilous defamation! Death to the opposes of Truth! Sports Direct shall prevail!!!!

    So anyway you’re wrong. There.

    Firebug – if Ed could get a proper grip of the ip credentials of people who attempt to create accounts, and even just the basic blocking of duplicate names it wouldn’t be so bad. I sometimes find myself cynically thinking he prefers the volume of traffic….

    YES! managed to unstick the scroll button momentarily. Its all gone a bit quiet on Austin. His lass is no doubt the one who’ll decide if / where Charlie goes. I read someone say earlier that the other suitors were pulling out of the ‘race’ for his signature. Talk about a massive slap in the chops if he decides to stay at QPR rather than sign for the only team left in for him…Us.
