This Would Be A Bad Deal For Newcastle

9:05 am, Thursday, November 26th, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 4 Comments

There are reports  today that Newcastle are very keen to get Andros Townsend to the club in January and it seems that Newcastle have already been in negotiations for the player and if he comes in on loan in January he has almost been guaranteed a first team starting place.

There are also reports today – once again – that Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino is very keen to get Newcastle striker Ayoze Perez to White Hart Lane.

Ayoze Perez – keep him

So we suppose it would only take somebody to put two and two together (and get five) to suggest there could be a swap deal for Townsend – with Ayoze Perez going the other way – but that would be a very poor deal for Newcastle.

On the other hand, it wouldn´t surprise us if Tottenham push for a deal like that – since Townsend has no  future at White Hart Lane and it would be a coup if the England International could be used to get Ayoze Perez to the north London club.

Yes, we need players like Andros Townsend at the club in January as a player who could immediately produce for the club given his experience already in the Premier League.

Townsend will also be motivated to do well in the second half of the season so he can make the England squad for the Euro 2016 Championships in France next summer – so that could be another advantage for the Magpies.

But it would be a bad deal for Newcastle to lose Perez to get Townsend in.

Newcastle shouldn´t even be thinking of doing that in January.

What do you think?

Comments welcome.

    two and two don’t get you 5 mate 🙂

    If this happens I’ll put up a big I GOT IT WRONG. There’s no way he will be sold in January, we’re in a relegation struggle, it makes no sense.

    Anyway Ed man, hold on to your posts (I know you heard it 100 times), because then posts go by unnoticed – unfair to your posters.

    It’s newspaper talk, but I hope he hasn’t requested British players. They do as well or as poorly as foreign ones, as our relegation squad can confirm.

    We need players who can deliver passion, skill, effort, leadership and a winning spirit and those characteristics don’t belong to any one people from any nation – sorry to break the news. A sxxxe player is a sxxxe player, simples. And the opposite.

    I don’t care anout your name. Just win me games man.

    Just a thought.

    Isn’t Mr ashley supposed to be a Spuds fan?

    If so it wouldn’t surprise me if a deal was done in January to get Townsend in and Perez out.
