There are three weeks to go in the summer transfer window and Rafa has not used a number of players who he will now try to move out of the club either permanently or on loan for the coming season.
Players like Emmanuel Riviere, Sammy Ameobi and Haris Vuckic have no future under Rafa and should be moved out.
Haris Vuckic and Sammy Ameobi – no future on Tyneside
There are other players like Siem de Jong, Cheick Tiote and Yoan Gouffran who could possibly do a job for Newcastle this season if they are not moved out.
And then there is Moussa Sissoko who most fans are hoping will leave but for big bucks,
Here are the players Rafa could move out of the club permanently before the end of August:
- Moussa Sissoko – depends on Newcastle getting £35M so Moussa can join his dream club – whoever that is these days
- Siem de Jong – season long loan to PSV to join his brother Luuk and there should be an option to buy
- Emmanuel Riviere – sold permanently – most likely to Hamburg
- Cheick Tiote – permanent move likely to some far east club
- Yoan Gouffran – sold or loaned out for last year of his contract
- Sammy Ameobi – sold or loaned out for last year of his contract
- Haris Vuckic – sold or loaned out for last year of his contract
And there could be loan moves for these two young players with Mbabu having just signed a two year extension to his contract in the summer and a loan move will help him progress and hopefully prove he can last a season without too many injuries.
- Adam Armstrong – a season long loan somewhere, even though he wants to stay on Tyneside
- Kevin Mbabu – a season long loan to for his development and prove he can last a season uninjured
Note: The initiative “It’s Not Just Black and White” was partly inspired by the recent sad paparazzi photos of Paul Gascoigne, and a number of supporters have banded together to draw attention to the complexities of mental health and alcoholism – their action line is “It’s not just black and white”.
The group is not asking for donations but is simply keen to raise awareness of the problem through their web-site here.
