Reports – Turkish Club Outbid Porto For Chancel Mbemba


Portuguese outlet O Jogo is reporting that Chancel Mbemba is still not a Porto player yet.

Chancel has agreed on a contract but Porto have yet to agree with Newcastle on a fee for the 23-year-old DR Congo defender.

This move has been dragging on for a couple of weeks now and it could be that Chancel has set his heart on playing at Porto and in the Champions League.

It seems an excellent move for the talented defender.

However, until Newcastle get the fee, they want this deal could be held up for some time yet.

Chancel Mbemba – Turkish club Trabzonspor interested

Desporto are reporting that Turkish club Trabzonspor have come in for Chancel Mbemba and lodged a bigger bid than Porto.

However, the deal with Porto is reported to close by the end of the week – but we’ll believe it when it happens.

Newcastle want £8M for Mbemba and Porto are said to have bid 6£M so a bid of around £7M could possibly close the deal for Porto.

Chancel Mbemba has been at Newcastle for three years and we signed him from Anderlecht for a fee of around £8M.

Comments welcome.

    Swemag, very decent player mate. I posted a video of his a few weeks back when we were first linked to him and his range of passing is exceptional.
    Of the players we’ve been allegedly linked to, Sisto is top of my list, but as, with the rest, it’s probably not real. Shame though, I’d take him in a flash.

    A reminder of Sisto and what he could bring to SJP.

    Sisto was quick no doubt.
    Daniel Arzani was the highlight of the match. I’ve mentioned him before on here, sign him up now Rafa?

    Arzani has the potential to be better than hatem on the ball without the attitude

    Afternoon all, with it being silly season and being linked with 2668495 different players, I think genuinely no one has a clue who Rafa is truly after this summer.
    However after doing some digging on previous players he has been linked with across his times at Napoli, Real and us are any of these players realistic targets for us:
    Hector Herrera
    Marouane Fellaini
    Javier Hernandez
    Thomas Vermaelen
    Maxime Gonalons
    Andre Shurrle
    Pepe Reina
    He’s been quoted saying he wants to add experience to our current squad this coming season, all these players would cover that and whilst not any being world beaters, I think they would all add another dimension and quality to our current team.

    Wow, the blog never ceases to amaze. Jiblets, despite spending most of his tome installing satellite dishes in Denver, living in Benidorm, Marbella and the North West of England just happens to be in a restaurant at the same time as Charnley, Jonas and Collocini and sitting so close to them he can hear what they’re talking about. Was he translating for his guests Stephen Hawkings and Bryan Ferry?

    My only question today is, why is a classy bloke like Jonas doing hanging round in the same establishment as shit heels like Charnley Colo and Jib, was his illness not punishment enough?

    Charlie, my favourite Motown record is between Barbra McNair ‘You’re gonna love my baby’ and a record I broke on the scene Martha Reeves – ‘No-one There’.
    First played it at Aycliffe all nighter around 75/76. Kept persevering with it until it really took off at Warrington Parr Hall in the mid eighties! Took some breaking but it’s massive now.
    My favourite all time record is a very obscure Jimmy Rae track ‘For the sake of love’.
    I’m enjoying the more obscure stuff now from the early sixties, what’s being described on the Northern scene as R&B.
    I believe the final all dayer at the Lancaster Suite is on later this year, so I’ll probably show my face there for as long as possible. They play oldies in the main hall but there’s a side room upstairs for the more obscure rarities and R&B as they call it. Probably find me up there with big Hoss and Trusty.
    Started going to Wigan about 73/74 and just carried on. Don’t get to many venues now because of my physical issues but like to show my face here and there when I feel up to it. 🙂

    Bobby/Ron/Micky et al. Dammit, I’ve been out and missed a great discussion about the days of my youth. I was (am) a great fan of soul and collected a lot of 45s from the 60s. I tended to buy the more remote tracks because I got fed up with the stuff that got thrashed to death on the radio, (wireless) I found I preferred the more obscure ones anyway. Brenton Wood, Major Lance, Chuck Wood, Darrell Banks etc. Strangely, one of my favourite tracks was a mix of “The Night” by Frankie Valli. Who’d have guessed. The Cellar Club in South Shields was a great place to hear Soul, especially if you caught a lad called Ian Hart. He had a great collection. I was (am) a fan of all sorts of music and me and my pals used to get to the Mayfair quite a bit. We saw the “New Yardbirds” on their return from the States in Oct 68. It turned out to be the First British Gig of Led Zeppelin. Mind blowing.
    As it happens, the Cellar in Shields was a terrific venue for 60/70s groups too. We saw Cream,Jimi Hendrix,Taste, Soft Machine, The Who and more. Great Days. Mayfair,gone,Cellar Club gone. It’s sad.

    Tosun, The Night, Frankie Valli, on Mowest Records, another Motown subsidiary label.
    I saw Major Lance at Wigan Casino in 75. He wasn’t meant to be on but they had the licence for a live act that night and brought him on as a surprise guest. Brilliant performer.
    Frankie Valli was one of only a few white acts to perform for Motown. Kiki Dee was another – the only English performer to sign for Motown Records. (Bit of useless information for you!) 🙂

    Just googled it. The Some Other Guys were regulars at Burn Heads Rd, Hebburn. They played R&B, then changed their names & played blues à la Fleetwood Mac, Chicken Shack, etc.

    So, from the past month or so’s conversations, it would appear that we’re all 50+ “gammons”, who think the 60s/70s/80s were the best.

    Great banter marras.
