Kenedy Loan Likely Blocked By Conte – Newcastle Could Miss Out On New Signings Today

With just over 16 hours left in the transfer window, things do not look too good for getting new players into Newcastle.

We were hoping that Achraf Lazaar and Jack Colback could be moved out today.

But it looks like Jack’s loan move to Wolves which looked like it could happen yesterday broke down last night and Jack is now in limbo and Newcastle may have to keep paying his £70K/week wages.

We are hoping that Lazaar’s loan move to Benevento will go through today.

A swap deal between Tim Krul and PSV goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet was talked about a couple of days ago but nothing since then.

Newcastle still have Tim, Sadio Haidara and Henri Saivet to move out but nothing seems to be happening with them.

Kenedy – could now stay at Chelsea

If Tim is still a Newcastle player tomorrow he will be the third goalkeeper to fight it out for a first team place this season.

We have been linked with Independiente left-back Nicolas Tagliafico so it’s possible that deal could go through.

But with only 16 hours left in the window, these deals seem fairly weak in that they are not too far along.

And now there’s news in GOAL that Antonio Conte wants to keep Kenedy at Chelsea for the season, even though an agreement has been in place with Newcastle for a season-long loan deal for a few weeks now.

But one provision was that Chelsea could sign some new players and that hasn’t happened.

So the reality – if you forget the hype for a moment – is not good for Newcastle to bring in new players in the next 16 hours.

Comments welcome.

    Swansea signing Renato Sanchez is mind boggling.Just shows how far we have left behind and couldn’t compete with the likes of Westbrom,Swansea,Watford etc..

    guff/drivel/garbage about him.Just shows how narrow minded and know nothings some really are.

    Liverpool rumoured to splashing £175million today which suggest Coutino is history.
    Man City throwing money around.
    Man Utd already spent mega bucks.
    Arsenal buying to survive
    Chelsea rolling in money and maybe want to keep Kenedy.

    Looks like a cartel designed to stop other clubs encroaching on their and their European counterparts cozy patch.

    Welcome to the Premiership Category A and Category B clubs

    ‘Welcome to the Premiership Category A and Category B clubs’

    As we clearly can’t compete with Swansea these days I suspect a Category C or even D rating is needed for the Toon. Let’s settle on a C.2, eh? Or maybe Category YY (YoYo)?

    It’s a classic case of Catch 22 with regard to big money transfers.

    I’m not sure whether fair play rules still apply hereby owners can plough as much money as they like into their clubs irrespective of how well these clubs perform but certainly the big prize money income comes from finishing in the top 4 (perhaps 5 & 6 too) and competing in the Champions League.

    Only with that consistent level of income and success year after year can these clubs afford the huge transfer fees and the excessive wage demands.

    It’s noticeable that although Leicester won the Premiership and received the most prize money for that year in itself is not enough to fund big money transfers. They would need to repeat their success year after year to build up a money chest.

    The Premiership is tiered and almost predictable in which teams finish where and therefore how much prize money they receive.

    We are in the lower tier and will be dependent upon Benitez to spot exceptional untapped talent and modest prices. Merino, Lejeune and Atsu look good. Not so sure about Manquillo, Murphy and Joselu but there are many games to come for them to prove themselves.

    10 years of no ambition, no vision, no desire, and no interest in Newcastle United from Mike Ashely, he only uses Newcastle to promote and advertise his company sports dirrect through Newcastle, he has no interest in making Newcastle into a good team who can compete Newcastle in the premier league, to any Newcastle fans who are a little deluded or a little slow in the uptake, its well past time to wake up and smell the coffee, yes we have a great club, yes we have amazing and loyal fans, in my view the best fans in the land, yes we have a fantastic manager, but nothing is ever going to change under Mike Ashely, except in the near future we will probably lose Rafa, the man who give everyone hope, but the way things stand under Ashely the only hope we have is = Bobe Hope, and no Hope.
