Newcastle Linked With Four More Players After Shelvey

3:55 pm, Tuesday, January 12th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 214 Comments

We reported earlier today that Andros Townsend had turned down a move to West Brom because he wants to join Newcastle and there seems to be interest from the Newcastle side with the Mail reporting that Steve McClaren is keen to bring the England winger to Newcastle this month.

In fact the Mail reported in late November that McClaren wanted both Jonjo Shelvey and Andros Townsend in January, so maybe the Mail were accurate in their reporting, with Shelvey now on  Tyneside having his medical after a £12M deal has been agreed with Swansea City.

Maybe Newcastle could get Andros on loan with a potential to make the move permanent in the summer, but it’s good news the England International wants to join the Magpies.

Andros Townsend – arriving at Newcastle this month?

We also reported that Nicklas Bendtner was keen on a move to Newcastle and there’s a report in German magazine Bild that Newcastle may be interested – but he returned form the three-week winter break overweight and unfit.

But why would Newcastle want Bendtner on Tyneside when he is nowhere near the form he showed in his early years at Arsenal and has been poor at most of the clubs he has played for since then?

And the third player we are being linked with today is 24 year-old Burnley striker Andre Gray and the Wolverhampton-born Gray only signed for Burnley in August for around £6M.

Before the transfer he had played a couple of times for previous club Brentford (with two goals) before that.

Andre Gray – Burnley striker

Newcastle could sign the striker, who has 13 goals in 20 appearance so far this season for Burnley – but he cannot play for three clubs in a season.

So we could sign him, but he wouldn’t be able to help us in our relegation fight.

If we are interested in the player then maybe we could make a move for him this summer.

Finally the Chronicle is reporting that Newcastle still want to sign Loic Remy on loan for the rest of the season and he’s a proven Premier League goalscorer, who would be a great signing for us – even on loan for five months.

If Loic would come and help score the goals to save Newcastle this season – what’s wrong with that – even if we he wont sign for us full time.

And why wouldn’t we go after Charlie Austin of QPR and offer say £8M and he should be fit again early next month – so we would have the striker department covered – although that may be a bit of overkill if Papiss Cisse is soon to be fit.

If Newcastle don’t want to sign Charlie in January we should get him to sign a pre-contract agreement so he signs for us permanently in the summer on a free transfer.

We expect Papiss Cisse to leave the club this summer and it looks like once Jonjo Shelvey is in – and we have two central midfielders already signed this month – then Cheick Tiote will be allowed to leave.

What do you think?

Comments welcome.

    Saivet I’m not convinced by and I think willl be another Graham Carr clanger. Shelvey is where it’s at, good range of passing and the vision to make things happen, knows how to boss a game at a relatively young age and can crack shots from outside the box with good consistency. hopefully his character will mature as he comes in to his mid-twenties.

    Still, need a LB and a ST as top priorities now.

  • 2 SPRINGY // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:00 PM

    pacey striker options looking bit thin…hope they dont opt for bendtner??

  • 3 Jail for Ashley // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:01 PM

    Seven hour time difference sucks, game starts at 03 00 and bars close at 04 00 so even if I did manage to stay sober enough to watch the game it would be over at half time, just have to check the result with one eye at 04 48 🙁

  • 4 West Lancs Geordie // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:03 PM

    Club just announced that tickets for tonight’s game on sale at the gate. So obviously signings created interest

  • 5 Jail for Ashley // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:03 PM

    That’s very positive of you HWA

  • 6 Hail Wor Ashley // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:05 PM

    Well, Jail, I’m sure you’ll be able have a nice uninformed talk with your fellow casual, Jesper, when it’s all over. So there’s that.

  • 7 ronaldo aarons // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:06 PM

    The only pacy premier league strikers that seem to be available are berahino or gayle. I don’t think remy is available if I’m honest.

  • 8 SuperShearer // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:08 PM

    Inter have terminated Vidic’s contract. Am I the only one who thinks he could do a hell of a job for us… if only for the remainder of the season. Natural leader and can organise a defence + can score from corners. Something we’re sorely missing.

  • 9 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:08 PM

    Out of those four i would take Remy on loan and take a punt on townsend. Bendtner is long past his prem best, and we have no room for another untried striker at the moment.

  • 10 SPRINGY // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:08 PM

    might be a bit of a waiting game to see if chelsea sign another striker….not sure gayle would score enough

  • 11 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:10 PM

    SS

    Vidic short term is certainly worth thinking about. Can’t see this lot up here going with it, though

  • 12 banjax // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:10 PM

    Why buy Gray from Burnley when we have Armstrong at Coventry scoring goals for fun ?

    Can’t see Remy coming to NUFC if there is a chance to stay in London or the South.

    Where abouts are you staying in the land of smiles?

  • 16 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:12 PM

    7hrs difference? So guessing china-ish?

  • 17 SuperShearer // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:13 PM

    @YCMIT – even if just till the end of the season I think he would do wonders for our squad. He’d organise, motivate and terrify and we’re in desperate need of that in this squad.

  • 18 croftus5678 // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:13 PM

    andre grey is a realistic target and prob the best option we have tbh that we know can score in england.

    bos dast is a great option that has more risk’s with it also.

    but would any of these have a better chance of getting us the goals and come with less a risk than arma would do if we simply withdrew his loan deal ?

  • 19 ronaldo aarons // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:14 PM

    I don’t think vidic has played all season, I’ve not seen him play but I could be wrong and I watch a fair bit of serie a.

  • 20 Belfast // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:14 PM

    I’d rather eat a dog shite sandwich than sign Bentnder

  • 21 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:16 PM

    Totally agree, SS. NUFC need to forget policy for the rest of the season, and roll the dice on a few transfers and loans. They wont all fail, and like you say, Vidic surely has the qualities we need at the moment.

  • 22 SuperShearer // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:17 PM

    @ronadloAarons – fair enough. Still think given the lack of motivation from some of our players and their lack of drive he could come in and light a fire up under them. Frankly I’d be scared not to do as he said, looks like he kicks through brick walls when angry.

  • 23 SPRINGY // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:17 PM

    croftus
    we could sign him but he could’nt play….3 club 1 season rule apparently

  • 24 lukes26 // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:17 PM

    I still believe in Carr. His successful/failure rate is worse than most other EPL teams. This is certainly true.

    However, he finds some real gems that you don’t see other clubs finding with regularity.

    Cabaye, sissoko, tiote, ayoze, Ba..all were incredible bargains. I think we’ll be saying in a couple of years that haidara and mbabu were also bargains.

  • 25 West Lancs Geordie // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:17 PM

    Super Shearer I know Mackems are doing nowt with Man U rejects but he must be better than the shower of CBs we’ve got apart from Mbemba

  • 26 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:17 PM

    Colourful, Belfast. But, if it means not signing Bellendtner, order me a dog sh1te sarnie, too!

  • 27 Dennis Twice // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:19 PM

    …Thailand…same attack problem Ashley!

  • 28 ochytoon // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:22 PM

    People really want Vidic?

    He’s been awful at Inter. He can’t handle the physical nature of the game any more and has struggled in Serie A, a much slower league. There’s no way he can handle the prem now.

  • 29 West Lancs Geordie // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:22 PM

    There you go Springy on top of his game again. Nowt much get’s passed him.
    CB then Springy

  • 30 will die for the toon army // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:22 PM

    Remy and Townsend pliz. And make Mbabu a starter.

  • 31 Pottsclock // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:23 PM

    Very pleased with Shelvey. I’ve hated him in the past for being able to control games against us and for having a bit of a nasty side when necessary. We desperately need someone like him for set pieces too. Still young also for that position.
    On Saivet I have to feeling he is a replacement for an outbound and it looks like Tiote. I am sad at that because whilst we have seen mixed form in the last 18months, Tiote has also proven in the past that he can be at a level above Colback and our other DM options.
    On Townsend, as well as cutting in from the right he can also cut in from the right. He’s pretty good at cutting in from the right too. However, it’s quite encouraging that SMc’s coaching skills actually making us a preferred choice for some players

  • 32 will die for the toon army // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:24 PM

    We should give Perez and Mitro one more chance for these two games before we rush.

  • 33 West Lancs Geordie // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:26 PM

    I’d much rather bring in Crouchie than Bentner or even Richie Lambert if we are looking at past their sell by dates

    Aye Springy I was wondering about you at No 5 as nothing seems to get passed you but the Lorient lad didn’t we have an interest in him a season or so ago. If not it was somebody else from Lorient..Still hoping we’ll bring in LB & CB

  • 51 cyprus // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:38 PM

    Wow, lots of action since I’ve been gone. Hope these players are signed AND that they do well for us. Shelvey I’m not convinced by, hope I’m dead wrong. Anyway, most people here were saying no way, he’s too good, won’t sign for a scum like MA and a non-manager, maybe they’ll offer a mea culpa now.

    I really hope we can somehow win tonight. My Man utd mate (fanatic, with red devil tattoo on his arm) says so. Probably a draw.

    wouldn’t like to say what you might have to do
    but its for the toon and as my brother Is fond of saying any holes a goal

    on a serious note with shelvey and savait coming in and maybe tiote out the door will we be looking to offload anita
    cant see us getting rid of colback the old home grown rules if we get rid of willo and bring in shelvey were ok but lose colback and we don’t have enough do we might be wrong there

  • 63 Mister Tuff // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:45 PM

    Without a doubt Shelvey is a decent player. The only doubts I have is his attitude -why did Liverpool let him go – is it true what Curtis said that he gets the lip on if things do not go his way.
    Whilst he is young – hopefully he will mature and blossom at SJP.

    Please no to Townsend/ Bendtner – not good enough players.

  • 64 dok - the horrid colonial // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:47 PM

    springy,

    imagine signing kone… and have him derby ready in march… hehehe, like to think hed get a brace of us vs them bahstahds…

    well worth 5m, imo….

  • 65 West Lancs Geordie // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:48 PM

    That’s probably why another £15M is going to go on an British Striker or am I just in dreamland now?

  • 66 Mister Tuff // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:49 PM

    And no to Remy – he’s denied us twice -does not want to commit at all. Whilst he is a good player why whould we facilitate his dreams of playing for France. I would look elsewhere – his last loan period cost mega bucks – use a similar amount to actually sign a player.
    It might be expediant to utilise Remy in our dire situation -but he’s a Tw*t – look elsewhere.

  • 67 archaeomag // Jan 12, 2016 at 4:49 PM

    “Please no to Townsend/ Bendtner”

    Anybody noticed we cannot score? 6 away goals in 20 games. Chronic. Our strikers are were than poor. So whats the betting we do not sign a striker of proven quality? Hot off the press… Graham Carr” We are well stocked in the striking department with Perez and Mitro and we have Riviere returning from injury and is like a new signing.” Only joking lads but I bet we get Bentner. Panic buys but thats the way a gambler runs a club.

    Shelvey will be a top signing. Wanted him for over a year now didn’t think it would happen. He’s got great passing ability and vision, hopefully he can be the long term cabaye replacement we’ve been looking for. Now get him, Townsend on loan (why not give him a chance and see what he can do) a decent left back like Willems or Robertson, possibly a centre half and any striker out of Remy/Berahino/Gray

  • 90 Tsunki // Jan 12, 2016 at 5:01 PM

  • 95 jimiley // Jan 12, 2016 at 5:02 PM

    If we spend 30 million in January and 50 million last summer that makes 80 million in 6 months. But I d not think the team is getting any better for 80 million. A blinding start would be a good manager.

  • 96 brklyngeordie // Jan 12, 2016 at 5:04 PM

    And for the record I would take Gayle think he is very similar to Remy as far as pace and flexible at position and English which is something I’d like to see us bring more in totally for us signing him

    On Kodi: I have a Kodi box, and also Kodi on my pc, but the best streams for me have nothing to do with either of them.

    I have Aceplayer and Sopcast installed, so all I do is go to the sopcast channel page, select the match I want to watch, and then select a suitable Acestream or Sopcast link, to be fair it has never failed me yet.

    The other potential about the Shelvey signing (hopefully) is that it could just be the thing that convinces any waverers we approach to sign up.

    The midfield should be running their socks off tonight to hang onto their shirts with Saivet and Shelvey in the wings.

    This game has 3.0 either way written all over it.

    Both teams can’t score and both getting hammered by the fans.

    My feeling is one of us is going to get a big break tonight and I hope we have a repeat of that fantastic 3.0 win against Man U from our 5th finish season.

If Austin doesn’t want to leave London then a possibility exists where Austin becomes a hammer and the prodigal son returns if the money is right.

    He’s never played better for any other club regardless of the wages. Yes the sentimental amongst us would welcome him anyway but he could help Mitro develop his game as an aggressive No.9 beasting defenders.

    There is an app called TuneIn that has over 100,000 radio stations worldwide, I would think it would work with any android phone, and out of that amount of stations you should be able to find the match.

    Springy – not sure about soccer sauce breaking that bendtner is thankfully not coming as the Ronnie broke that this afternoon via twitter.

    I’m chuffed with shelvey signing just hope the signings keep coming. The current first xi looks so much better on paper now:

    Elliot
    Janmaat-Mbemba-Coloccini-Dummett
    Saivet-Shelvey
    Sissoko-Wijnaldum-Perez
    Mitrovic

    Both the back 4 look better protected and the front 4 to get better service. I’d possibly still go 442 with that or even 352 again.

    You’re curious about what Welshyboyo thinks? Does he do thinking?

    Welshy, 😉 and I trust all’s well on all fronts.
