Newcastle To Make Assessment On Whether To Sign Striker


As we expected Northampton Town striker Ivan Toney was at St. James’ Park for the game against Borussia Monchengladbach, and it looks like he is still waiting for a decision to be made by Newcastle on whether they should sign him.

He has been on a two day trail training with the Newcastle Development squad and he will await the decision made by Newcastle.

McClaren has said that Newcastle are still undecided on whether to sign Ivan Toney but that they will assess what he did in training and decide whether to sign him.

This is what McClaren told the journalists after the game:

“Northampton have allowed him to train for a couple of days. He’s done that and we will assess that.”

“He has trained with Peter Beardsley in the U21s, now we just have to sit him down and assess what we are going to do.”

It looks like Peter Beardsley will have a big say in whether Newcastle will sign Toney, and he will have seen whether he’s better than the lads already at the club.

We suppose that’s the comparison Newcastle wanted to make, by having him train with the U21s for a couple of days.

Toney has played for Northampton Town 60 times with 13 goals and 6 assists since making his debut back in 2012.

We should hear very shortly what the decision is.

Comments welcome.

    Have to say reading through some of the comments from today’s game made me chuckle, especially the stuff about Obertan.

    It’s common knowledge that Obertan is good in meaningless games when there is no pressure, listen to what Fergie says about him, best player in training and friendlies but gets stage fright when its competitive games. He has a mental block issue and cant perform as he’s nervous. You still get some though who think he’ll finally come good….good grief!!

    I feel sad for supporters that want their team to lose but understand it happens but it’s not nice for supporters who want their team to win to be dragged down by hearing it especially in such a brutal way it’s not surprising it gets a reaction.

    If people want their own team to lose just to try and make a point then they are not real supporters, you should always support your team no matter how bad your team is playing.

    I wonder if our 3 new signings will not only get the best out of our 1st team players but also our fringe players, if mitrovic played up front with riviere he might get the best out of him, I hope so I would give him another chance I think he would do well and perez, Gini will no doubt get the best out of our midfield players, and hopefully mbemba will get the best out of the three stooges, if that’s the case we wouldn’t need any more players but that’s a big if.

    Colo away next week?

    I honestly can’t see Colo leaving this season unless it’s a move to Argentina. It just wouldn’t make sense for a player who’s desperate to get back to his family to move to London…..unless his missus amd kids will be happier there than up north with us.

    To the WUMS, the comment from tudor was to give Ashley a wake up call!!

    Our Toon, I was vigorously sticking up for squidward today because I believe he has all the ingredients to be a very good player. Stage fright as you say is a psychological issue which can be cured. It’s difficult to cure stage freight when you are jeered at every little mistake you make, of course your self-esteem and confidence will crumble, that’s natural, that’s human. Cisse makes mistake after mistake after mistake, can’t do ANYTHING apart be positional aware but he gets away with it because he scores. I would argue that Cisse is liable for breaking down our attacking threats the majority of the time. Obertan at least contributes to the attacking threat with his pace and agility. So by that logic I would rather have Obertan start than Cisse

    I really wish there had been some truth in the Shaqiri rumours… Nkoulou would be a good shout too! I would have to try & find room for de Jong in that line up though

    I was looking at McLarens comments about his preferred 18 to 20 players and came up with this

    Krul, Darlow, Janmaat, Colo, Mbemba, Dummett, Haidara, Anita, Colback, Taylor, Sissoko, Wijnaldum, De Jong, Cabella, Perez, Cisse, Mitrovic, Aarons, Riviere, Elliott

    Lascelles, Bigirirama, Woodman, Satka, Armstrong, Ameobi, Good, Toney etc…….development and back up or loaned out

    Tiote, Gouffran, Marveaux, Williamson, Obertan, Ferguson……..surplus to requirements

    I reckon, as Macca keeps saying, that if the RIGHT players become available, we will sign them. Clearly he very sensibly doesn’t wish to commit either way, because it leaves him wide open either way. This is better communication than we’ve had recently. It’s also abundantly clear he is is own man and not ‘owned’ by Ashley. His integrity, like most mens, is important to him. The idea of him conspiring with Ashley is, quite frankly, bordering on lunacy. A wealthy man in his own right who could retire tomorrow if he chose to. His work in getting his new footballing philosophy across is working well. It cost £15 to watch today and despite the result, I felt it well spent. From the last few seasons, the football was unrecognisable and will only improve with time. The introduction of the subs – all potential starters next week – stepped it up further. Yes, we still need a cb and out and out winger, but the window’s not shut yet and nothing is ruled out. A team that tries? Boxes ticked. The corner has been turned – now to build on it. Give the man a chance I say.

    James,

    Who is squidward?

    With Cisse, he thrived under a 4-3-3 when he was in the middle & Ba & Ben Arfa either side.

    Hasn’t done as well as a lone striker playing the 90mins but impacted well coming off the bench.

    People talk about Real Madrid BBC of Bale, Benzema & Cristiano Ronaldo, we had our own BBC of Ba, Ben Arfa & Cisse!
