Report – Newcastle Have Completed Doumbia Loan Deal


Agent Oscar is a football agent said to have reliable contacts in Europe and he is saying the deal to get Roma striker Seydou Doumbia to Newcastle on loan is done – his tweet was posted about 25 minutes ago.

We hope he’s right because we need at least one success today as we have missed out on both left back targets Valencia’s 26-year-old defender Lucas Orban and Atletico Madrid left-back Guilherme Siqueira.

If it’s true we may get something from Newcastle tonight.

    Based on Bera’s premier league career he’s a 1 in 4 striker. Currently he’s not fit. We have 15 games left so we could expect him to maybe get 3-4 goals if he plays every game. Personally I’d back Mitro to at least equal that. If Doumbia signs on then I’m happy enough to miss out on the overpriced Bera

    There is a bloke on twitter stating he was doing a stadium tour and couldn’t go to pitch side because Doumbia was having photos taken…
    Time will tell if he is honest

    It’s just normal wheeling and dealing brinkmanship.

    WBA know we are desperate for a striker and will hang out for a higher bid knowing that we have the money.

    This new lad looks canny, move on if the kid from wba is a non starter… Don’t waste time on ghost signings and finish off what could be an awesome window

    We will have to wait for an official announcement mate, he has to get clearance to play in the Premier league first.

    If fans are waiting on the announcement of Seydou Doumbia, the club are waiting on international clearance to come through. #NUFC

    Good. Don’t need Saido, it’d be at least a couple weeks before he could even be up to match fitness so I don’t see how much help that would be for 25 mil

    If Doumbia has been at St. James’ then fair enough. If not though the lad must know he’d get an onslaught. Same as the lad who set up a fake Lee Ryder account. Crackers man.

    6 month loan deal with an option to a permanent deal.

    Best option for both parties I would say

    Im sure I’ve read that Satka has gone to York on loan. Hopefully the lad will get a bit of experience. I’ve seen him play for the young’ns, looked a solid player.

    He will certainly give us the pace and goals that we have been lacking. I said earlier that his style reminds me of Aspilla, with quick feet and the way he muscles defenders out of his way.

    Good news. Still want Berahino too and Doumbia will provide bera the time to get fit. Quality young englishman who we won’t be able to get in the summer IMO..

    Cracking player if he’s the same player I watched a couple seasons ago in the champions league.

    Regardless of how well he does he has the attributes and top level experience we have been shouting for. Should go well with the others signed as well.

    Very pleased with this window, hopefully we keep going every transfer window and it’s not another false dawn.

    Right £21 million for a decent cf…
    If we get Doumbia with Mitro and Perez…..suggests goals IF we have the assists from our new midfield !
    £21 million would get a cracking CB and LB .
    Why did we not buy in the summer, Smc said he would rather spend the lot in one window.
    Bloody hell I don’t know what’s best, 3 × windows or what.
    Nowt easy supporting Newcastle.
    Falcons played well today, thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Yay ! Good news at last (assuming it’s not just a twitter storm)
    Doumbia is a cracking signing IMO.

    Sutty – reckon Mitro will get a lot better service from Townsend and JJ – and could reach double figures for this season

    I’d love to get Berahino in but if we don’t I won’t lose any sleep (as long as we have Doumbia). With him, Townsend and Shelvey in the team now I’m confident that will see is ok.
    Then we can get a big name striker in the summer to replace Cisse.

    I think Mitro will score a lot more with the new additions to help him out.

    I also think Berahino would be a cracking player, he had a good record last season and was improving until Pulis spat his dummy out and wouldn’t give the lad a proper chance after the summer.

    Berahino didn’t help himself but the club should have sold him or played him, wasting everyone’s time currently.

    My god. This blog has spent many months wasting words on Charlie Austin. Time in your lives you’ll never get back. Do we really need to eat, sleep and breathe every second of the Berahino saga?

    Fingers crossed. Hopefully the signing is announced shortly. He’ll definitely add pace upfront. Would take the pressure off Mitro too. Would love to see them play in a 442.

    Little else to discuss at the minute, no game this weekend.

    Hopefully this doesn’t rumble on until the summer like the Austin saga did for 6 months.

    Apparently the bid for Berahino is £24 million up front, with £25 million predicted to seal the deal tomorrow.

    Look on the bright side, at least we’ve strengthened, if no one else comes apart from Doumbia we’ve still had good window, any other signings are a bonus.

    Ashley is a highly competitive egomaniac who hates losing. Hard to say what that will mean for this Berahino deal tomorrow. I must admit, having been reasonably sceptical even at £18m, seeing us pile all-in on a transfer for the first time in a generation is pretty exciting stuff, and on balance I’d welcome the adrenaline shot that it’d provide.

    He can’t possibly be worse or as ineffective as Sissoko, so if we can bring in a big fee for him in the summer, then it’s effectively risk-free. Contrary to a couple of earlier posters, I really do think this guy’s the cancer in this team. We can start to compete again when he’s gone.
