Newcastle Make Approach For New Winger Target


There was news yesterday that Newcastle are interested in signing Hull City’s 28 year-old Polish International winger Kamil Grosicki.

With Hull being relegated they are trying to offload some of their players but it doesn’t help that they don’t have a manager at the moment after Marco Silva activated the release clause in is contract and is now the Walford manager.

Silva brough Grosicki to Hull in January when the 49 times capped Polish International (9 goals) signed a three-and-a-half year contract.

Silva tried to strengthen the side to avoid relegation but he was in the end unsuccessful but at one time he looked like he could save the Tigers.

So it’s not too surprising that Watford would be interested in signing Grosicki now.

Polish media outlet Sportowefakty is reporting that attracting both Newcastle and Watford are looking to activate a release clause in the winger’s contract.

Grosicki made 15 appearances for Hull City with no goals and 5 assists.

Since Marco Silva brought Grisk=cki to England in late January we have to think he is in the driver’s seat for signing the Polish International for Watford.

Marco must strengthen the Watford team for next season after they finished 4th bottom of the Premier League on 40 points, but that was a full 6 points above 3rd bottom Hull.

It might help if Watford keep with one manager, since Silva is the 8th manager the club have had since December of 2013.

🙂

Newcastle definitely need at least two more wingers brought in this summer and here’s yet another one we have now been linked with.

Is that 22 or 23 wingers we have now been linked with this summer – I’m losing count.

🙂

We’d be surprised if Rafa signs this player for Newcastle

What do you think?

    Been working in Korea and Japan the last couple of weeks and had a chance to watch a few games in FIFA under 20 WC

    Currently watching Japan for the second time.

    Ritsu Doan has been the most exciting player in the tournament, having another great performance today.

    We may be targeting better quality players than what we have targeted in our recent past which naturally means that they are a bit pricier and with possibly £100+ if we include player sales cash going into the pot then we can and should target better quality, but even so, Carvalho is surely still out of our price range.

    This fellow however did look half decent and would be affordable.

    I’m always a bit worried about buying players from relegated teams as they’re the reason they were relegated!

    I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Grosicki play live before and he is a handful and very fast. Always a threat on the ball. Would love to see him at NUFC.

    Grosicki – looks like Bergatov and what I saw of him for Hull would be a excellent buy

    Considering the 25 man squad limit I’d be interested to see who people believe we will hold on to and indeed who you think we could actually sell to make room for new signings.

    Currently we have 4 senior keepers when krul returns and you would have to assume 2 would be sold leaving 2 senior and woodman (who doesn’t need to be registered) you would assume at the very least Hanley, either gamez or lazzar to go plus massadio but there’s plenty more players probably not up to the grade but can we sell them? The likes of Colback for instance? Or does Rafa want to keep him.

    ShirebrookToon @7 – Interesting article which seems to conclude all transfer rumours are b*ll*cks until we near the transfer window opening. Did we decide if that’s July 1st or mid June?

    Ron Knee, SPRINGY – Thanks guys, just done a bit of Googling and it seems to be July 1st every year in most countries – only France seems to have a mid-June date for some inexplicable reason. Not sure why Sky has June 9th unless they think we are French? 😀

    According to this
    http://www.skysports.com/football/news/12691/10862752/when-does-the-transfer-window-open
    it is June 9th for English clubs but everywhere else it says July 1st. Unusual for Sky to make such a blunder – I wonder if they mean June 9th between 2 English clubs and July 1st all others – it is very confusing though?

    I did find this on Wiki “Although, in England, the transfer window formally opens on 1 July, transfers between clubs in the same league can take place as soon as the last competitive fixtures for the season have been played. However, many transfers will not be completed until 1 July because many players’ contracts expire on 30 June. International transfers cannot be made until the window has opened on 1 July”.
    So maybe it is transfers between English clubs that June 9th refers to?

    Man city seem to be signing up lads now for big money before the transfer window even opens. So is the window opening date not just a mockery much like the supposed transfer embargo’s implemented against teams spending more than they financially make

    Maybe Valencia might go back in for Mbemba if the transfer fee for Mangala proves to much.

    Newcastle United defender Chancel Mbemba is wanted as a permanent transfer by Spanish club Valencia.
    The Daily Star reported that the La Liga outfit are prepared to offer £7m for the former Anderlecht player, who cost the Magpies £8m.
    Toon manager Rafa Benitez is unlikely to accept such a lower offer for one of his stand out performers, and is prepared to play hardball over all negotiations.

    Pretty sure deals can be put in place at any time, the player can’t officially join until July 1st.

    So many stories flying around its hard to keep track or make sense of it all tbh….see boubedouz(excuse the spelling) is the latest “nearly there” transfer along with the big double swoop for the 2 lisbon lads..how true..who the hell knows! … anyone heard a price for grosicki.tgink he would be decent addition to the squad as he has plenty pace.

    Am quiet excited at the thought of completely new purpose built team for the PL, but I will not hold my breath. Plus I would not be too disappointed if the team largely stayed the same with a new striker & #10.

    Seannufc,

    It’s difficult to know what Rafa thinks of Colback.
    We know he likes players to play as he has told them to. In which case, all the sideways and backwards passing which brought such abuse on his head during the past season, could be simply that Colback was acting under instructions, and doing the job exactly as Rafa required. In which case he might well be on the ‘must keep’ list which the manager will have drawn up.

    That’s not forget that we still need another striker I just can’t see Gail or mitrovic cutting it, we badly need a Premiership standard striker someone like Sturridge Or ihanacho. We need to get shot of average plays and we have allot of them, gouffran needs to go Anita, sels, Hanley, ameobi, colback, and the likes all need to go, we need to build our team around Shelvey and form a basis from there
