Newcastle Waiting For Responses To These Four Offers


Rafa Benitez has already said that he doesn’t expect any deals to be made early in the January transfer window, but that he is expecting arrivals during January.

It seems that Newcastle have done all they can before the window opened and have put in loan offers for three central midfield players.

They are Chelsea’s 20 year-old Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Manchester City’s 27 year-old Fabian Delph and Everton’s 27 year-old Tom Cleverley.

Rafa Benitez and Lee Charnley – put four offers in for players

Now there’s not too much Newcastle can do about those players until they get responses back from their respective clubs.

It may be the clubs aren’t too willing to respond early as they wait for other potential offers coming in – maybe from Premier League clubs.

We also have an offer in for 24 year-old striker Callum Wilson of Bournemouth, but manager Eddie Howe doesn’t want to sell.

But he didn’t want to sell Matt Ritchie in the summer either, so this one to a large extent depends on what Callum Wilson wants to do.

Certainly he will get higher wages at Newcastle and we have the draw of Rafa Benitez,  but he will have to take a drop down the leagues.

But it looks like that will be for this season only – with Newcastle looking good to get promoted.

And it’s certainly an easier sell than it was for Matt Ritchie since we are now top of the Championship and 9 points above third placed Reading who have a game in hand on us.

We just have to keep taking one game at a time and not get carried away …..

So that seems to be the current situation with Newcastle’s transfer business  – we are waiting on responses to four offers that have been put in.

Rafa Benitez and Lee Charnley have done their work early and the four offers are all in at the very start of the transfer window.

That’s as much as they could have done.

What do you think?

    score 2-1 to us

    Could be a really tough game or we’ll thrash them.
    Bit of an obvious thing to say I suppose. 🙂

    By the way I’d just like to say well done to Jail for coming out with the great idea of Rafa (all hail him) bingo. That is a genuine comment of praise and not irony.

    Gives a bit of of extra interest to Ed’s fine blog.

    The handbags and eye scratching is the icing on the cake which livens up the dull periods. 🙂

    Also

    It could be cloudy or it may be clear

    It could be rainy — there again it may be dry

    Blackburn could KO off with their backs to the Darwen Stand there again ………..

    Quick thought

    Do you think Wilson might think twice coming here, knowing that Rafa only plays one up top, and seems hell bent on not rotating gayle, so he could sign for us and literally not start for god knows how long due to dwights incredible record at the moment

    If Armstrong comes back off loan, can’t see the point in signing him.

    Wonder if Murphy will be on the bench today?

    Essex no worries mate, don’t think arma will come back anyway til the summer to be honest

    Rotonda not my place but don’t think Essex is taking the p1ss tbh, makes me chuckle a bit when I read it. So can’t speak for others but for me there’s no malice intent whatsoever

    Watching Leicester and Boro and they are not that much better than us at the moment(debatable if they currently are) if we improve the left hand side and no 10 role next season we would be able to beat a lot of these teams comfortably, we totally dominated Hull as well they would have had no complaints if we had won 2 or 3 nil but with the players we can sign next season I expect we will be streets ahead of a few of these teams straight away

    Just watched Rafa’s interview on sky sports, And the guy eats sleeps football.
    He sounds like he’s here for the long haul,And says exciting times are ahead for Nufc.If the little things can be put right at the club,There is no reason the club cannot be successful back in the Pl winning trophies.
    The future looks bright… the future looks Rafa

    If Mitro hasn’t travelled, it might be reasonable to think he’ll be away this window?

    I know, highly unlikely he’ll change formation but one can but hope. Two wingers is crying out for a target man and as I never win, wtf? :). Going for 1-3 scoreline if he listens to my common

    I don’t think selling Mitro would be any great loss pal do you ??
    If he’s playing third choice in the championship then what chance does he have back in the Pl.
    It tells me everything I need to know when Rafa persists with Perez… who incidentally I would 100% sell

    Rumour has it that Mitro has been suffering with a bug since Saturday. Have to admit my first thought was he’s gone too.
