Newcastle Announce Several Imminent Transfers To Be Announced Soon


At the Fans Forum meeting on Thursday night, 29th June, the members were told by Newcastle that some imminent transfers are soon to be announced by the club.

We trust that’s true (why wouldn’t it be?) because fans need to see some good players being brought into the club this summer and if we can bring say three good players in this week that would be very good.

Fans are getting just a little anxious at the moment by the perceived lack of signings.

But that can be solved by the announcement of say three good players this week and of course there is still plenty of time to bring in some good players this summer.

Fans Forum meeting in progress last Thursday night
Good to see everybody so attentive – they must have been talking about the incoming transfers
🙂


Here’s what Newcastle have just published on their web-site.

Newcastle United have revealed that incoming transfer news is expected imminently in the club’s most recent Fans Forum minutes.

A wide range of topics were discussed by supporters and the club’s senior management team when the Forum reconvened at St. James’ Park on Thursday, and details meeting minutes can be found here.

About the Fans Forum:

The Fans Forum is a body consisting of supporters and senior club officials which meets during the season to discuss all areas which affect those who follow the club.

It was reintroduced in 2013 to enhance communication between fans and the club, enabling fans to give those who make decisions and implement services a fuller understanding of their views and the issues which   affect them.

The result is constructive dialogue between those who are passionate about the success of Newcastle United.

Supporters can contact Fans Forum members here.

The actual statement to the Forum read as follows:

“The club reinforced its commitment to strengthening in positions identified by the manager and aims to deliver positive news in the coming days.”

“In a general discussion with the group, several factors that can impact upon transfers were explained and the club highlighted the limited amount of business completed by most clubs through the early stages of what are challenging market conditions to date.”

“The club explained that it had hoped to conclude some incoming and outgoing deals early and while sharing frustrations, there is confidence that the squad will be improved.”

“The club emphasized that rumors in the media had no influence on its operations.”

“The club explained that planning for a specific transfer window takes place well in advance, so the mutual decision by the club and Graham Carr to part ways would have no impact on current targets.”

So we expect 26 year-old Frenchman Florian Lejeune to be coming in – who do you think the other players are?

Here is where you can find the minutes in PDF format of last Thursday’s meeting – at the bottom of the page in the middle.

It looks like there are no immediate planned improvements to the Benton Training grounds but over time the club wants to vastly improve the overall training facilities.

Comments welcome.

Note:

One of our readers Alex Wannop is completing in the GN 10K next Sunday and also the GN Run to collect funds for Tiny Lives, because the Trust provided lifesaving care for his son Isaac, when he was born by C-section and in some distress.

The Tiny Lives Trust funds the Special Care Baby Unit at the RVI where Alex’s son Isaac spent the first few weeks of his life.

Alex is appreciative of the work the great doctors and nurses did to save his son’s life and that’s why he’s raising money.

Please support this very worthwhile charity on Alex’s Just Giving page where there are pictures of his son Isaac – thanks.

    Could easily be imminent bad news on incoming transfers. Assume nothing.

    England u19 winning. 1 up v Bulgaria after 1 min apparently.

    Where’s the several come from??

    As for Perez needs to push on. The lads played 100 games for the toon now and is still like a lost lamb on the pitch.
    I’ll never forget how pathetic he was against Oxford he was in the cup. That made my and many at the Grounds decision on him

    my bet is it’s Lejeune!
    Wouldn’t surprise me if we were in for Chalobah at some point if Rafa wants to use his contacts.
    The new head of scouting was at the u21s tournament too, any deals for those players probably happen after next week as they’ll be on holiday? Was some really good players there too! Few of the german and Spanish stars were at much smaller clubs! Best player there was Saul! what a player he’s going to be

    Yep I was expecting some sort of breakthrough today mate. Not just regurgitated bull shite.

    Thought exactly the same when the words imminent breakthrough came up. Are these the rabbits that Rafa is gonna pull from the hat.

    Sky sports think there is serious interest in Joe Hart from Nufc. And they tend to have at least a bit of truth about em.
    My first thoughts was the long protracted Leguene saga will finally be over then who knows.

    Would be mint if the transfer news blows us all away with Excitement… Carvalho… Zouma would be an amazing start

    Can see Everton have pipped us in getting Sandro and that youngster Henry. Really disappointed we did not follow out alleged interest, both would have been brilliant buys for us and both were under £10m!

    i just want a signing so we can see where we are aiming for in the prem !
    if we re sign goofy / huddleston then its survival / lower half or if someone like fernando / carvallho upper league or even lucas lieva / gibbs mid table.

    That’s exactly my thoughts pal. The standard of player we bring in is gonna say a lot where we aim for next season.
    I don’t believe for one minute Rafa would have agreed to stay to just be in another relegation dogfight

    ..and West Ham are about to go for Chicharito! FFS WHY ARE WE STANDING STILL!!?? Have always wanted Chicharito here and he’s available for only £12m!!

    We should be going all out to get him! Proven, quick quality player on the cheap and still only 29, go get him Rafa pleeeeeaseee!

    Just read that about Joe Hart mate. Gotta be summat in this one for it to make SSN. Be funny if the lejuene saga was smoke and mirrors for Carvalho and Zouma. That would be a mint start.

    I think we’re 4 or 5 Prem players away from a mid table position! That will do me for next season!
    Howay Rafa !

    “Dejong , Saivet ,Riviere and Krull returning from loan, like new signings and then we have AArons ,Sterry, Armstrong and Woodman coming through…….what do you peasants want, how many can we put on the pitch at one time again Penfold….?”
    “Er i think its 10 players and its either a referee or a keeper i can never remember which……i see what your saying Mr Ashley, why do they keep asking for more…….its like a dream i once had where you were in old clothes , but not rubbish ones like yo sell in your shops sir , no, these was good clobber, you were there , i was there and a whole load of kids singing songs to you………”
    “Get a grip penfold and go and get the biscuits, youve done knack all since Rafas been away you lazy good for nothing, just as well you make a decent cuppa otherwise youd be out on your ar$e, i dont care how good your lass`s scones are”

    Totally agree, I’ve been chanting his name since my very first post on the blog. When you consider that Gray is said to be on offer for £15M, it shows what a steal Hernandez would be
