£10M Janmaat The Next High Profile Player To Leave Newcastle


Daryl Janmaat will be leaving Newcastle in a day or do with both Watford and West Ham said to be interested in him and it seems the interest has turned the Dutchman’s head and he now wants to leave Newcastle, after only two years at the club.

It is believed Newcastle have accepted a £10M offer for him and he’s gong to leave – the only question is which club will he join – it seems like it’s neck and neck between Watford and West Ham.

Daryl Janmaat – will be leaving Newcastle

However Janmaat will definitely be the next high profile player to leave Newcastle after our valuation of the player has been met by both clubs.

We paid Feyenoord £5M for him two years ago, but we have since had two of the worst seasons ever in the Premier League under John Carver for half a season and then Steve McClaren for 28 games.

In the 43 games they managed the club, we got a very measly 37 points and only 8 wins but a massive 25 defeats – and John went 8 Premier League defeats in a row – the first time that has ever happened.

I’ve got the stats in tables for each manager but I’ll get depressed if I put them on here – so I’ll refrain from doing that – I’m not daft.

🙂

The Shields Gazette’s Miles Starforth thinks Daryl’s off to the Hammers and if he gets a choice he will probably join West Ham, who are in the Europa League this season.

As usual Rafa Benitez is bringing a player in – DeAndre Yedlin – to replace Janmaat before he leaves and the 23 year-old American is on Tyneside for his medical and is at St. James’ Park tonight watching the EFL Cup second round tie against Cheltenham.

There will not be too many big name players left at Newcastle come September with Andros Townsend, Gini Wijnaldum, Florian Thauvin and Siem de Jong all having left and Moussa Sissoko almost certain to leave now.

Goalkeeper Tim Krul is expected to go on a season-long loan to Ajax this week and of course Coloccini left a while ago.

Such is the price of relegation that all your big name players want out – but Rafa Benitez has reduced the wage bill significantly and the average age of the squad has been brought down with some very good players for the money.

At least we will only have players who want to be at Newcastle – just like back in 2009 – and are willing to fight for the cause this season.

It’s just  a pity that most of those who have left or are leaving the club were not willing to do that last season.

The good news it’s a new era at Newcastle and likely to be a very successful one under Rafa Benitez.

If Moussa goes, Newcastle will be flush with money and will be able to spend in the January transfer window if that is necessary to guarantee our promotion back to the Premier League.

    Cheltenham continuing to look by far the more threatening team here – #NUFC haven’t had an effort on target yet. 0-0

    Aarons has been pants for a good 2 seasons now. That performance against Chelsea last season was as bad as his first half performance against Huddersfield this season

    Is it half time yet. I ain’t got a clue because of time difference lol.

    If not then mitro going off beforehand is a worrying sign, thought he’d tear up the championship.

    If anything this makes it more clear that creativity is the thing we lack massively, if you can’t create chances you can’t score

    So their game plan is to injure all our players in the first half so they can reduce our numbers in the second and win the game then.

    Woo hoo Perez, finally. Hopefully this sparks him to life this season

    Aye, some say why would rivals sell him to us?

    Wave £12-15m a piece in front of them and they’ll soon soften to the idea of letting them go, managers probably not, but they don’t call the shots, Brighton in particualr couldn’t turn that kind of money down.

    ‘Overpaying’ by £3-5m each is no problem should we get £25-30m for Sissoko.
