Newcastle Favorites To Sign Current England Striker


Leicester City may well try to sell their England striker Jamie Vardy in the summer,  with reports that the Leicester hierarchy are not happy with his form this season – he has only scored 10 goals in 36 total appearances.

He got a new contract at the Foxes last summer after scoring 24 goals in 36 Premier League games last season when Leicester were the Premier League Champions for the first time.

Ladbrokes have Newcastle as 9/2 favorites to sign the 30 year-old 16 times capped England International (6 goals).

Jamie Vardy – linked with Newcastle?

That deal will obviously depend on Newcastle getting promoted back to the Premier League this season but we would be very surprised if Jamie is one of the players Rafa Benitez wants to sign for Newcastle this summer.

Everton are second favorites at 5/1, but we don’t think Rafa will want to bring in a 30 year-old striker to Newcastle this summer.

Vardy had a £20M release clause in his contract before he signed a new deal, but he’s not worth £20M to Newcastle – not in our opinion anyway.

Maybe he will come a lot cheaper than that after a poor season?

We’re not really sure who the target strikers for Newcastle will be in the summer if we do get promoted.

Rafa may surprise us all with the two strikers he wants to bring into the club this summer.

What do you think?

    Why Mitrovic isn’t given a chance up top with Gayle instead of Colback or Diame is beyond beggars belief.

    Very disappointing

    Why would Vardy come to us and 20million for a player who will not be worth much in a couple of years.

    I just don’t like the attitude of Vardy.

    Don’t really want to see him in black and white stripes.

    BUT – if Rafa thinks he can change his attitude but maintain
    his form – so be it.

    Vardy, no!

    However it seems that Chelsea would like to off load Costa?

    Why not go for Defoe AND Vardy? Ashley’d be very happy to sign those one off. Harrumph.

    What tripe

    Your referring to MD as HT is getting somewhat tiresome.

    I’m disappointed Diame is starting, very average player imo.

    Not saying it doesn’t, but it’s too obscure and you’ve only
    explained it once (I think)

    WHY IS DIAME STARTING AT HOME WHEN WE NEED TO TAKE THE GAME TO THEM?!

    I don’t get this at all – It should be Perez, Mitro or Murphy instead!!!

    EGB, I am getting the same. I was complaining about it a few weeks ago, the problem seemed like it was revolved, now it’s back. Listening to radio that breaks up every 5 seconds is unbelievably irritating.

    NUFC official has not figured out how to Tweet yet, never mind a stable radio link. (Checking if it’s actually the year 2017)
