Last Player Wanting Out Could Still Leave Newcastle

2:28 pm, Friday, September 9th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 19 Comments

We knew the transfer window in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is open until the end of this month and that Cheick Tiote’s agents were talking to a couple of the top clubs there about taking Cheick on board.

At the end of July, Sky Sports were reporting there were advanced talks going on between Cheick’s agents and Al Jazira, who finished second last season in the UAE Pro League.

Cheick Tiote – could still move to UAE club

But that deal didn’t happen, but Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez in his press conference today said that Cheick could still get an offer from a UAE club:

“The transfer window in UAE is still open and there may be an offer for Cheick Tiote.” “We are waiting and he is training with us and we will see.”

There is still time for Cheick to catch the train out of Newcastle and with Rafa having brought in a couple of good central defenders in the summer there is really no future for Cheick at Newcastle.

It would be a good deal for both parties – Newcastle and the player – if the Ivorian could get a deal to leave the club.

That would take his wages off the wage bill at Newcastle and the transfer fee Newcastle want is low at only £1.6M and Cheick could start to play regularly again.

Sounds good to us.

Comments welcome.

    Bloody phone, I used to have a red underline function but it’s stopped working so I’ve gone for the lesser of the two evils, I was sick of fat finger spelling mistakes so have had to go predictive instead 🙁

    Why take Shelvey out? Fool. Clearly an important member to our team this season, you expect Hayden to Start playing those passes?

    My own feeling is that changes will be incremental, based on form, fitness and development, with any surprise choices picked for plausible tactical reasons.
    The aim, I think, is to create a team that works hard for one another and is fully committed to the squad ethos.
    If we get promoted, I expect the upgrades to come in key areas only and not necessarily be huge names on the radar.
    Leicester just showed what could be done with a workmanlike team designed to feed creative players and goal scorers who are not over-exposed and who other sides might take a season to work out.
    Or something completely different might happen….
