Newcastle Fans React To Potential Matt Ritchie – Joshua King Swap Deal


It seems a little bit odd if Newcastle are in negotiations with Bournemouth regarding a swap deal that would take winger Matt Ritchie back to Bournemouth and bring striker Joshua King to Newcastle.

Bournemouth would also receive some cash from Newcastle as part of the proposed deal.

We’re not at all sure about this one – always assuming the report in the Sun is accurate.

Matt Ritchie – fans don’t want to lose him

Here are some comments from Newcastle fans who took to Twitter on hearing the news.

    HITC reports … ?
    Would you buy s used car from them.
    No.
    Arthur Daly is more reliable.

    Not happening, just fiction, again.
    Ritchie to take a suitcase full of used notes on the train to Bournemouth with King bringing an empty suitcase the other way. Oh please.

    Ritchie and Kennedy feeding King up front might seem more interesting.

    I suggested I’d consider selling Ritchie the other day. I wouldn’t exactly say he’s impossible to replace and if Rafa has someone in mind like Rodrigues or JArrod Bowen then I say it’s the right time to cash in especially if we can get a decent striker from it. I think this King must be worth a lot more though.

    By the way, that Forsberg was good last night. Sure we’ve been linked with him before.

    Could someone write a story that The Sun and The Mirror are being taken over by The Shields Gazette.

    More plausible than the pap they write

    although King has only had one good season, you have to doubt he’ll have another one. he’s certainly no Aleksa…..

    I think it’s a load of tosh, if as reported, that Rafa/club is waiting for the Sky money before buying.

    If the right player came along and there was a danger of losing him to another club, surely it would be easy to get the deal done with a short term loan from the bank given the Sky money is guaranteed, or simply agreeing to pay the selling club on the 1st July ?

    One theory why it is so quite on the transfer front……. if Rafa has been offered the Spain job, no way would MA sanction any buys until a new manager was in place … just throwing it out there.

    We supposedly have new head scout Steve Nickson backed up with his team of top scouts scouring the world for unexposed talent as a new way to find talented players without paying ridiculous amounts for the obvious targets.

    What a fu…ng joke and complete waste of time and effort to send these scouts all over the kin place to compile a list of targets when we know the deals for these players will never be sanctioned.

    Keith, bonjour. How about this then. I was sitting in Percy street bus station the other day when I realised MA and Rafa were in the seat behind me, talking. I actually heard MA say, Rafa you can have every penny of the tv money if you can hang on till July.
    The only spanner in the wood….er…bine, was Pards lurking a couple of yards away shuffling his feet and giggling behind his hand. He kept waving a little card which had “I’m a better man manager than him,honest” written on it.
    Just then Rafa turned into a giant hot dog and MA ate him all up.
    Now that’s as true as I’m here floating round in space, with David Bowie!!

    Sevilla is the 4th club to express interest in Merino.

    I think the reason he is being linked to so many clubs
    is that Rafa is trying to broker a loan deal for a player,
    he would like to keep , but cannot currently be
    guaranteed playing time.

    You might be right there Jib. He needs playing time for sure but La Liga isn’t the PL and he needs to prove he can adapt to the English game and show some consistency here. Playing in Spain won’t help with that.

    I wonder if they will use VAR to sort out who did what in the big fight after the Germany/Sweden game?

    Well…they didn’t take long to blow your prediction out of the water Dubai….though I doubt you’re complaining about it. LOL.

    Great strike by Lindgaard, that was.

    Proof is in the pudding, though. Let’s see how they do against Belgium once this game is over. Just have to avoid any unnecessary injuries at this point.

    I had said to Bobby that Southgate is better than he is give credit for. Fair play because he is changing England’s style and shape. You boys have a decent chance in this tournament
