Newcastle After Spanish U21 Midfielder In January

3:05 pm, Wednesday, December 16th, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 32 Comments

The Sun is reporting that Newcastle are keen on signing 21 year-old Spanish U21 International midfielder Victor Camarasa from Levante in the January transfer window.

While we expect Newcastle to sign players ready for the first team next month, there’s nothing wrong with signing younger players who are for the future and this would be one of those signings.

The signing of Ayoze Perez 18 months ago was also one of those signings that has paid off handsomely for Newcastle and Perez continues to improve as a potent striker in the Newcastle side.

Victor Camarasa – Levante midfielder

With the success of Perez it’s not too surprising that Newcastle are returning to Spain to sign some promising younger players.

Camarasa has played 52 times for Levante with 5 goals and two assists since joining them three years ago after coming through the Valencia Youth Academy – with Valencia being his home town club.

This season the youngster has played 15 games with two goals for his club who are right at the bottom the Spanish league with just 11 points from 15 games and 3 points from safety.

The 6 foot tall player plays in defensive midfield and has a contract at Levante that lasts through June of 2019.

We were first reported interested in this player back in March this year.

Comments welcome.

    Ian I hope the pop up pages in that liddle book don’t poke you in the eye.

    I have concluded you are in fact an insecure person with a pretence to some higher plane of knowledge few if any will be able to comprehend. I will leave you to enjoy that then, wherever it takes you. Adieu et bon voyage.

    heart you too tsunki, lol

  • 5 Tsunki // Dec 16, 2015 at 3:14 PM

    What a waste of time that was. I think I’ll go away for a bit and do something that doesn’t do my head in.

    pot calling the kettle there a bit
    Jib about nasty pieces of work

  • 10 Tsunki // Dec 16, 2015 at 3:22 PM

    Two / JT – it’s not fair to expose Jeff like that mate, it makes it very difficult for Ian Toon to jump to his hapless protégés defence 🙂

  • 11 John Tudor // Dec 16, 2015 at 3:22 PM

    Jib // Dec 16, 2015 at 2:58 PM

    The real B and B came out @ 40.
    Belfast is right she’s a real nasty piece of work.

  • 12 John Tudor // Dec 16, 2015 at 3:25 PM

    spit out the response Jib or ally welsh ian

  • 13 Tsunki // Dec 16, 2015 at 3:29 PM

    Here’s another approach you could try Ian before I go, it’s much less subtle but might get straight to the core of my slack jawed limp wit, you never know.

    ” I love Belfast. I don’t love Tsunki. I love Jib because he finds other people’s clever words and posts them like it’s his. I don’t love Tsunki because he thinks Jib is a nasty tool. I love being clever. I don’t love Tsunki because he thinks I am a chattering loon.”

    That’s the stuff that gets right to the issue. 🙂

  • 14 Tsunki // Dec 16, 2015 at 3:30 PM

    ….and rest.

  • 15 geordieboy83 // Dec 16, 2015 at 3:31 PM


    That may be so, but still think you were bang out of order.


    I have to admit I thought the blog might make for happy reading after the 2 results, but sure as sh1t come Tuesday or Wednesday its just back to blog one up man ship and down right nastiness. The sad part is I think the most of us are probably full grown mature adults.

  • 16 John Tudor // Dec 16, 2015 at 3:31 PM

    i don’t mind the f@ck off or c@nt its the association with die that’s the problem we all get scores in correct

  • 17 John Tudor // Dec 16, 2015 at 3:34 PM

    bang out of order
    are you for real

  • 18 welshgeordie9 // Dec 16, 2015 at 3:34 PM


    Way out order there, I want to talk to people that’s been in a similar situation, don’t ever say that I’m using my dad as an excuse, what, can’t have a laugh now, like I said what goes comes around.

  • 19 John Tudor // Dec 16, 2015 at 3:36 PM

    and someone telling someone else to fo and die c isn’t
    priorities and alignments we know the sides here

  • 20 welshgeordie9 // Dec 16, 2015 at 3:37 PM

    Can’t even have a pissing laugh now, I know I just sit on my sofa feeling grumpy for the next couple of months and wait for him to get better.

  • 21 geordieboy83 // Dec 16, 2015 at 3:41 PM

    John tbh mate I didn’t see jib say that, and you’re right there’s no need for it. And yeah I am for real I’m afraid I don’t agree with what BandB said, not one bit. No sides no alignment with individuals.

  • 22 welshgeordie9 // Dec 16, 2015 at 3:41 PM

    At the end of they no one knows each other on here, so whether you respond or not I don’t feel disrespected, talk great if not who cares, the only people I would be pissed off are the ones i see face to face everyday, friends and family, so to say I would have a cob on here if no one sends me a message is ridiculous.

  • 23 reilly // Dec 16, 2015 at 3:42 PM

    what ive noticed with this welsh lad is he comes on here to wind people up,and when something goes wrong in his life he comes on here looking for sympathy from the people he tries and winds up.
    sorry but jog reet on.

    as for jib hes just a grade A scumbag with his racist/ diabled jokes.

  • 24 John Tudor // Dec 16, 2015 at 3:42 PM

    just for you welshie

  • 25 geordieboy83 // Dec 16, 2015 at 3:46 PM

    Gotta say I’ve never heard of this Spanish fella, if he’s cheap he’s gotta be worth the risk, but unfortunately for every Perez we seem to have an amilfiltano.

  • 26 Hail Wor Ashley // Dec 16, 2015 at 3:46 PM


    Tiote – £5m max
    Cisse – £7m max


    Robertson £8m-10m
    Glik, exactly the type of CB we need – 18 months on contract, mid-table Serie A club – £10m max

  • 27 welshgeordie9 // Dec 16, 2015 at 3:48 PM


    Which part of I don’t want sympathy don’t you understand.

    Jog on

  • 28 reilly // Dec 16, 2015 at 3:51 PM

    if you were not looking for sympathy,why bring it to an open blog where noone knows each other.

  • 29 welshgeordie9 // Dec 16, 2015 at 4:08 PM

    reilly the only thing I’ve been asking thankfully I’ve got it and that’s advice that’s all I want.

  • 30 reilly // Dec 16, 2015 at 4:25 PM

    why not ask the docotrs dealing with your dad for advice,they would be in the best place to give it not total strangers on a blog.
    dont think im being heartless because im not,i just dont get why you would bring it here.

  • 31 goommy // Dec 16, 2015 at 4:53 PM

    This lad remind me of Steven Gerrard so Get him!!

  • 32 edtheduck // Dec 17, 2015 at 12:03 AM

    It;s been a while since I’ve posted but this one got me interested… he’s a very decent player and would certainly fit in… plus some company for wee Perez might not be a bad idea…
