Newcastle Considering A Bid For Belgian International Forward


Newcastle have been linked with a move for 23-year-old Belgian forward Anthony Limbombe.

Belgian’s HLN (Het Laatste Nieuws) journalist Kristof Terreur is based in London and reports on Belgian players in the Premier League.

He has issued a tweet today saying that Newcastle are to bid for the Club Brugge forward, who usually plays on the wing.

Limbombe joined Club Brugge two years ago from N.E.C. on a four-year deal for a fee of around £2M.

Here’s the tweet from Terreur:

In his two years at N.E.C, he scored 23 goals in 70 appearances, and he has one goal in 28 appearances for Club Brugge.

He has one Belgian cap in a 4-0 win against Saudi Arabia in March and didn’t make the Belgian World Cup squad.

Comments welcome.

    “Newcastle are considering a bid”. Says who ffs? Belgian press in contact with Rafa then?
    Now, when he goes to Huddersfield you’ll hear “Newcastle miss out on yet another target, blah blah bloody blah”.
    Not to worry though, there must be at least another 260 were definitely in for yet. 🙂

    Honestly don’t think we’re close to signing anyone…worrying that theres been no Rafa quotes on the fixture list either, makes you wonder if implosion is about to strike… even more so when you see pictures of Alan Pardew and Justin Barnes socialising together…
    You see players like James Maddison going for 22m, Kramaric rated at 40m, Jorgensen at 20m and you just got to think, Ashley is never going to compete in this world, its too over inflated! Could see Rafa being seriously tempted by the Spain job.
    One thing is for sure, agents from the continent love name dropping Newcastle to try and run up prices.

    kc2012 from previous “Shelvey would’ve been a huge weapon for England”

    I think that’s exactly what Southgate is worried about.

    Jay, or maybe he’s just enjoying his holiday with his family and knows there’s plenty time to make comments when he gets back to work?
    With no money available until July he may well have decided to take a well deserved break and avoid all this nonsense that crops up season on season, having missed out on a holiday last season. Sometimes family comes before work, especially when there’s little he can do until the money goes in.
    He’s given Penfold his list and like it or not it’s over to him to do the rest.

    The thing about JonJo (and I’m a big fan of his) is that he hasn’t been brought through the modern England youth scheme via St George’s Park and the junior England teams of recent years. He’s almost certainly good enough to make a difference to England, but is a stranger to the current set-up which, rightly or wrongly, has a set way of playing with personnel they have been coaching to play that way for years.

    Time will tell how successful this approach is, but at least it’s a strategy which has some grounding in logic and sports science, rather than Hoddle’s reliance on Eileen Drury or Capello’s ban on butter on bread.

    Unfortunately, it’s an approach which is likely to see Shelvey, Lascelles and many others frozen out, despite how strong their claims may be.

    No way is this git worth 13M, maybe 6-8M, but you’d only really agree a ‘loan-to-buy,’ given his fairly ordinary output in a less than that competitive league. This is ‘agent-talk’ and gutter-journalism’s ‘bait-for-clicks.’
