Newcastle Linked With Former Liverpool Midfielder


Since Newcastle have to replace Gini Wijnaldum and probably also Moussa Sissoko this summer, we will be linked with a number of midfielders for the rest of the transfer window, which still has five weeks and one day to run.

talkSPORT is reporting today that Newcastle are one of the clubs interested in Wolves midfielder Conor Coady, who was signed last summer from Huddersfield for £2M, and he generally plays in defensive midfield.

Conor Coady – Wolves midfielder available

Last season the 23 year-old played 39 games for Wolves and he’s been capped at the England youth level from U-16 through U-20.

The report is that Wolves new owners – the Chinese conglomerate Fosun International – want to bring in some new players like Benfica’s 22 year-old Brazilian attacking midfielder Anderson Talisca for £20M, although Liverpool are also after the 6ft 3ins player.

It seems that Conor is available to leave Molineux this summer.

The two other clubs said to be interested in the 6ft 1ins tall midfielder are Queens Park Rangers and Sheffield Wednesday.

Conor was born in St. Helens and is a Liverpool supporter and came through the Liverpool Academy.

He went on loan to Sheffield United for the 2013-2014 season and he played 50 games for the Blades with 6 goals in that season.

Conor finally left Liverpool in the summer of 2014 at age 21 and signed on for Championship side Huddersfield Town on a three-year deal for a fee believed to be around £500K and made his debut against Bournemouth that August.

Conor ended up playing 48 games with 3 goals and 3 assists before leaving the Terriers last summer for Wolves.

We think Rafa Benitez is on the lookout for good young players who he can bring on at Newcastle, maybe Conor will be one of them?

And with defensive midfielder Cheick Tiote being reported about to leave Newcastle for UAE Pro League club, Al Jazira, maybe Rafa is looking for a young replacement for Cheick?

What do you think?

    In the last two games, rafa has experimented with the right wing, and both players have scored. He cant seem to do wrong “-D

    Just seen the strap at the bottom of the SSN screen, apparently Pogba has scored for Stenhousemuir tonight. Looks like he’s flipped the bird to Mourinho.

    YCMIU, he’s probably doing it to show chequebook Charnley that we are short of wingers, backfiring a bit isn’t it!

    Sutty

    Haha yeah could be.
    Seriously, though,he just seems to know how to use his players. Anita actually has the atributes to play there imo. He is a good passer, quick and decent on the ball. Has a canny shot on him too when he feels like it.

    I could switch Anita with Janmatt. Janmatt has poor positioning. Aninta is a better RB. I wld feel safer with Janmatt as RW

    i think Gamez stole Anita and Janmaats position & rafa’s giving them an opportunity

    we need at least one more winger ..ayoze wont cut it there, even in the championship

    I have watched the match on that -periscope site….

    It’s not ideal but fair play to the lad for offering live footage.

    From what I have seen we are still bloody rubbish at corners !

    I think perez’s best position is centre of the three behind the striker,i think. Either there or as a second striker.

    Ayoze is quality but there is something he lacks. He isnt a player to rely on. He can be a Wijnaldum, disappear when the tough gets going.

    Hanley on, Mbemba off, Sterry on, Janmaat off, Armstrong on, Aarons, Gayle off, Gouffran on and Colback for Hayden

    Anita has proven his value to the club over and over again. His performances late last season at RB were excellent.

    i agree about perez,shoe horning him into a wing position is stunting his ability,jack of all trades master of none comes to mind…needs to be played in either of those positions or not at all if not good enough… i believe he is….just needs games to get used to one position….just my opinion like.

    I think with gini gone and sissoko probably going, perez, sdj and arma are the only 3 that can truely play well there. Id say thauvin is more suited wide, like ritchie and aarons.

    Rotonda – follow the lad who is streaming the game. Sometimes his stream stops and he needs to start a new one. It shows up on his periscope profile

    hope so,the lad has talent and skill but if he continues to get spread about the place,lw rw,st,2nd st..his game will go to pot,needs to pick a position and graft at the one position instead of just being happy to graft anywhere…..hopefully your right.

    i’d like to see thauvin get some games tbh….lets have a good look at him against slightly less talented but more aggressive champ players and see how he does,he’s got talent,he showed it in small glimpses in the cup and especially the arsenal game….just needs to grow a pair and want to be succeed here….for a start.
