Newcastle Trying To Agree Deal For Ukrainian International


Newcastle look to enter the race for Ukrainian International Yevhen Konoplyanka, who is a left-sided midfielder and now a free agent, but is asking for huge wages.

Stoke City have balked at those wage demands.

Konoplyanka used to play at Dnipro Dnipropetrovs and 18 months ago he almost moved to Liverpool for the £16M buyout clause in his contact but Dnipro President Ihor Kolomoyskyi refused to allow the 25 year-old to move to Merseyside.

Yevhen Konoplyanka

Yevhen Konoplyanka – 25 year-old free agent

Konoplyanka has been at Dnipro all of his career and made his debut in the Ukrainian Premier League in August 2007, in a home game against Zakarpattia Uzhhorod, which ended 0–0.

At the time he was 17 years old and he has since played 210 times for the club with 45 goals and 37 assists, including playing 42 times last season with 8 goals and 7 assists.

Yevhen made his debut for Ukraine in May of 2010 and played the whole game in the 4–0 win over Lithuania in Kharkiv – and he had previously played for all the Ukrainian Youth sides.

Stoke have been trying to agree a deal with the 45 times capped winger (10 goals), but it seems they are unable to agree wages with the player.

Newcastle are reported as being one of the clubs who are keen to at least explore whether they can make a deal with the 5’10” tall winger.

The wage demands of the Ukrainian are said to be colossal so unless his wage demands come down then Newcastle will not be able to make a deal either – but he’s very keen to join the Premier league with some club.

His wage demands are said to exceed £100K/week – so he’s got to be kidding.

The player is due in England next week to talk to clubs who are interested – and that includes Newcastle – and needless to say this lad will go to the club who are willing to pay him the biggest wages.

So he’s after the money for sure.

Comments welcome.

    Multi-account? I have been reading but only vaguely since i just finished my first year at college today, is it something i need to be aware of?

    Yes, i guess that is a legitimate reason for not signing anyone. Must be hard selling the likes of Obertan and co… But that’s what happens when you give these players contracts that teams that are at there level cant afford. Really hope we get rid of the deadwood.

    I’m here. We need to get this chap signed up. Pay the 100k per week. He’s a great play. Him and thauvin on the wings would be great. The winajdum would be a decent coup. Reckon we’ll go for mdodji, van dijk and matip

    Remember when liverpool were after him, probably why he has such huge wage demands.

    Would love him here, but… Im guessing everyone is probably sick of hearing the second part of that statement so il just leave it 🙂

    I’m still trying to work out if it is just a few who have multiple accounts or whether it’s just 1 person with a severe case of multiple personality disorder who is just having one huge conversation with himself. If that’s the case, maybe I’m a rational side of him trying to reason with all the other personas!
    If that’s true………what a mind fk that is!!

    Six digits in his pay demands means he ain’t coming here unless the thought of not challenging for anything mean’s he’ll be happy to half his demands!!!!

    I really hope we sign Dost, we have needed a target man for ages. Perez and Cisse and maybe even Riviere would excel playing off of him.

    He’s 25 years old for christs sake…give him a 4 year contract on 100k a week and we’ll still be able sell him for 15 million in four years time so he’ll have cost us 5 million in four years which is like paying 25k a week

    This is a no brainer…we can’t lose on that deal for a player of his quality…someone somewhere will pay that for a player of his quality but unfortunately it won’t be us
