Transfer Details – 12 Players In – 21 Players Out – £31M Profit


There news that Moussa Sissoko just got his deal done in the nick of the time and is now a Spurs player means that Newcastle get £30M for him.

Newcastle have had a terrific transfer window with 12 players coming in for a total of £54.5M with all but one of them  permanent deals.

The last player announced – Christian Atsu – has come in on a season loan and we have an option to buy him at the end of the season.

Newcastle also received £85.5M for six players sold this summer – Andros Townsend, Remy Cabella, Papiss Cisse, Gini Wijnaldum, Daryl Janmaat and Moussa Sissoko.

Notice that is more than we spent all of last season so we should be in really good financial shape  because the wage bill was also reduced significantly.

It’s been some great work done by Rafa Benitez, and he was helped enormously by all the hard work done by Managing Director Lee Charnley and his team.

They did all the negotiations and got all the many deals agreed and signed.

An excellent transfer window for the new Newcastle United.

    Out of the 21 out goings,only 8 or 9 of them had any sort of regular input. Id say we have covered that with the 12 signings, and scored for 31M ti boot.

    Result.

    Congratulations to Rafa and Lee Charnley. Excellent business for NUFC.
    Done in a professional and methodical manner.

    Just shows what we have been missing since SBR and KK.

    I’m far too old nowadays to wish for the suffering and excitement of transfer deadline day and thankful that they are now quite a predictable affair, for us at least.

    Of course we can question where player a or b might end up as we’re left gloating at fleecing Everton or is it now Spurs, surprised at Pochettino mind, for a player we found it difficult to take to our hearts.

    Onwards and upwards as we ride the Rafa for president train – Yee haaw

    Well, what a turn up.. first window I can recall where the final success is judged by a player leaving at the last minute and not one incoming.
    Remember when we just missed out on Bryan Ruiz ?

    Sissoko has no shame. He whore’s himself to everton, virtually begging them to sign him, then drops them the second spurs come in. Sign in haste – repent at your leisure. Bet he never mentions Arsenal again. Gone. Thank god. Worra plonka rod-er-ney!

    Good window, dead wood either gone out loaned out and great money for sissoko and wijnaldum.

    Assuming Tiote is staying put then, to be fair he should come in useful

    Looking at our championship rivals, Fulham have done some good business, surprised Pearson let Chris Martin go on loan. Wolves signing from Monaco could be a star but didn’t see Brighton or Norwich really strengthen over the last few days.

    There’s literally no one in the squad atm that I feel like we need to get rid of ASAP, like even Gouffran and Tiote i think we should keep them, whereas for years, we’ve always finished the transfer window and there’s still been players like Riviere, Coloccini, Taylor, Obertan that I think we should have just got rid of

    Sissoko had been available for £ 30 m since we played Spurs at the end of last season.

    The window is closed. The squad is in place, nicely balanced. Guided by a master tactitian and backed by 50k screaming Geordies, the juggernaut that was slow to start gathers pace. Let’s kick some ass! 😉

    Been exited for Markovic, too bad it didnt go through. Anyway, very good transfer window from Rafa and NUFC, the best thing is we get rid of Sissoko for a ridicously high amount of money. Howay the lads!

    Manxpie

    He’s been inconsistent all his career? Bold statement mate, we bought him, he’s a French international and has been for many years…..hardly inconsistency is the reason why he’s consistently progressed from a higher standard of football in all his moves. Unfortunately spurs are miles ahead of us both on and off the pitch.

    He’s been inconsistent for us no doubting that but he’s joined a team that finished in CL last and a manager in Pochettino who must rate him and a manager in Rafa who certainly rated him, a manager in Koeman who also rates him……not bad cv of admirers.
