Newcastle have just announced that 23 year-old Haris Vuckic will be staying at Newcastle for another year with this contact being extended until the summer of 2017.

The club also announced Haris will be going on a season long loan to Wigan where he will be playing for former Newcastle defender Gary Caldwell.

Haris Vuckic on loan at Glasgow Rangers last season

This is what Newcastle put up on their web-site.

====

Slovenian forward Haris Vuckic has joined League One side Wigan Athletic on loan until the end of the season after signing a one-year contract extension with Newcastle United.

The 23 year-old has agreed terms to remain with the Magpies until the end of the 2016/17 season but will spend the 2015/16 campaign on loan at the DW Stadium, including any potential play-off fixtures for the Latics.

Vuckic joined Newcastle United from Slovenian PrvaLiga side NK Domzale in January 2009 and has made 20 senior appearances in all competitions during his time at St. James’ Park, scoring once.

Capped once at full international level, he has previously spent time on loan with Cardiff City in 2012, Rotherham United during the 2013/14 campaign and Glasgow Rangers last season.

====

Haris has been given another chance to show what he can do at Wigan – and we wish him the best of luck and hope he has a great season with the Latics.

    Voted yes

    4 potentially huge players signed
    No one sold
    New coaching setup

    Yes we need further investment in Jan and next summer, especially in defence and attack, but as stage 1 of the 3 window plan then i think we are in a better position now than we expected in May.

    Can’t be satisfied with the window until all the fringe players are off. At least three should be sold which would be enough to bring in a decent defender.

    As the first of three big spending transfer windows, i’m happy. Taken as a window in isolation, not so much. At least this time we have some promise that there will be more signings to come both in Jan and next summer. Previously we have been left with signing free barren spells.
    First XI replacements required for Colo, Anita & Colback in Jan and we go from there

    Would rather have the fringe players as just that then only have 1 starting 11.

    Our strongest 11 last season will likely be our cup squad this year. That signals we’ve improved to me.

    We played two tough fixtures without conceding. Now time to put the pieces together and get it working together.

    As for being satisfied with the window, well the fat man has spent 50M so fair play to hm, certainly can’t grumble with that, just can’t understand why a defence that has leaked 60 goals in its previous season only had a 20 year old kid with no PL experience added to it.

    It’s good to have a decent squad but there are some (Marv) that won’t ever contribute so what’s the point in having them?

    Yeah, i would have liked a CB, since both full backs are covered by players I consider better as CBs (Mbemba and Dummet).

    Nope. Probably spent enough for last seasons relegation fodder to finish mid table this season.

    Although an injury crisis and mid table could become relegation fodder once more.

    Keeping Cisse fit will be key. Don’t see where the goals are coming from otherwise.

    Wini and Mbemba look the part and Thauvin has shown some early promise, but the Serbian bloke looks a pony to me. Sorry

    I voted yes.. but with reservations. Mainly due to Mitrovic not settling in after the games he has played, 2 yellows and 1 red is worrying, but at least we have retained Cisse who is prolific. Mbemba, Wijnaldum and Thauvin seem outstanding and have hit the ground running but I would have been much happier if we had signed another centre half. Overall: 70/100 for tis window. Hopefully any problems can be revisited in January.

    It looks like ourselves and Man Utd could get relegated this season. We haven’t signed enough and we’ve sold our best players in Cabella and Abeid.

    Santon and Kemen should still be at the club. Kemen will be the new Pogba.

    £1.5m for Abied is a joke when championship club are signing Bradley Johnson for £6m.

    We should’ve sold Dummett for £8m. I’d even accept £1.5m for him. He’s pathetic. Santon is much better and we sold him for £2.5m. The clubs a disgrace.

    We could’ve got £20m for selling Dummett, Obertan, Gouffran and Williamson. Colback can go as well. That’s 5 that definitely shouldn’t be here. Lascelles is useless.

    I particularly enjoyed the part where you said “we’ve sold our best players in Cabella and Abeid.”. Bravo

    Blackley’s deadline day verdict
    In 40 plus years of following Newcastle, I always look first at the striker department. Who is the No 9 to guarantee you 15 to 20 goals? Verdict: £50m spent and we haven’t got an in-form striker. I wouldn’t be surprised if we have to recall Armstrong because of injuries, suspensions or just lack of form. I just hope I’m worrying unnecessarily and Graham Carr has got this right.

    The defence is still pants. Mbemba is a good addition but Colo is a liability. I predict Makro will promote Dummett at some point. We need three quality defenders unless Janmaat and Haidara can very much up their games.

    I worry about relegation and predict a bottom half finish. Winners of the trap door cup perhaps. It will all turn on whether Mitrovic comes good. If he plays well the team will. All I know about this kid is what I’ve seen. He’s very young and looks raw. So far he’s been slow and lumbering and a yard off the pace. Why? He hasn’t been injured.

    We will top the injury charts again no doubt. We always do.

    A most definite NO.

    I think we might rue not getting a good CB unless Good turns out to be very good along with Lascelles who could turn out to be good as well.

    The strike force will probably be ok but only if they are not having to track back all of the time to help the defence out which isn’t good.

    I’m actually pleased we kept Williamson it could be a good thing as well once injuries and the inevitable suspensions crop up.

    Just thought of a song for Aarons to hopefully kick some sense into him.

    Ro ro rolando
    Play him on the wing
    He tried to cross, he scored a goal
    Now hear the Geordies sing

    Quite clearly to the popular tune “row your boat”

    I’m really wanting Sissoko to play DCM where he played before we signed him and I believe he still has this role with his National side?

    I just can’t help thinking that his lung bursting power runs from deeper would help us break better linking up mid to attack and having either Anita or Colback beside him to do the donkey work and give him the ball.

    IMO the issue we have is the transition from defense to attack is not smooth at all, actually bordering on lethargic.

    If he goes DCM then the AMR in a 4231 comes up for grabs to further the progression of both Ayoze and Aarons (Perez was scouted as an attacking wide man) who have both got far superior attacking abilities than Sissoko.

    Well for me it’s been a very disappointing transfer window, given what Ashley said last game of the season.

    To start off with we brought in an average manager, nothing special. A bloke who did reasonably well with Boro and Twente but has pretty much performed below par everywhere else.

    In terms of players it’s good we haven’t let any of the better ones leave which makes a nice change, shame we couldn’t shift a bit more of the deadwood but that’s probably down to us not buying cover.

    We have bought good, promising, young lads but again nobody who is in their prime with experience (especially in the prem league) and as such as the season goes on I feel we might struggle.

    The 4 main players we bought look good so far but it’s hard to judge yet until we see them more regularly.

    However we haven’t really added any pace into the forward line which is the main thing I believe we are lacking and have been lacking for quite some time.

    Overall looking at our signings, in comparison with how many other clubs in the league have spent their new TV money I think we will have to play exceptionally well to get top 10 and as such I revise my expectations for a finish between 12-14th.

    Voted No. Can’t understand why we didn’t strengthen with a commanding centre back, I am worried that we are a couple of injuries away from a relegation scrap. Can’t fault spending 50 million but let’s hope Schteve knows what he is doing.

    I would want Sissoko to improve on his passing and tackling if he was going to be a DMC in the prem. Not saying he cant do it, like. Quite a few of our players lost form and a bit of spark in recent times.
