Newcastle Attacking Midfield Target Available This Summer

Football Insider 247 have reported that club sources have told them Everton midfielder Nikola Vlasic wants to leave the Merseyside club. Vlasic was heavily linked with Newcastle last summer.

Nikola Vlasic– wants to leave Everton for first-team football

Nikola Vlasic had an outstanding loan spell at CSKA Moscow last season. He made 31 appearances for the Russian club with 8 goals and 7 assists.

Vlasic joined Everton for £10M from Hajduk Split the summer before but found it tough going his first season in the Premier League.

When new manager Marco Silva arrived it got even tougher for the young Croatian as he found himself frozen out of the squad.

Below is a tweet from The Times Journalist Paul Joyce from last August:

This past April, Silva commented on Vlasic’s situation and progress with the following comments:

“We wanted Nikola to play as much as possible to demonstrate his best qualities,”

“We are watching him very closely.

“When the right time comes, we will make a decision for him. I am pleased that he is playing regular football, that’s the reason why we sent him to Russia in the first place.”

Despite these comments, it appears as though Vlasic wants to leave Everton permanently and Everton’s Director of Football Marcel Brands is actively pursuing a deal. The report says that Everton values Vlasic at £12M.

With CSKA Moscow likely unable to afford that price tag, we wonder if Newcastle would be interested in Vlasic at this time. He obviously has ability and would fit Newcastle’s current system.

At just twenty-one years of age, he has his entire career ahead of him. We really rate Vlasic and think he would be a great fit at Newcastle.

Here is a look at his fantastic goal against Real Madrid in the Champions League. It is the opening goal:

    From previous thread, I may be wrong, but don’t the Heads of Terms identify the items ‘on the table’, the subjects to be negotiated and agreed to form the Sale and Purchase Agreement which is the document that formalises and finalises the sale?

    lesh, as far as I understand it you’re right. Heads of Terms is essentially a list of what has been agreed as part of the sale. However, there’s been a lot of negotiation going on in the background to get to this point, it’s unlikely that Heads of Terms is the full extent of what has been agreed on, even if that’s the only piece of paperwork that’s been submitted to the PL / FA.

    I probably confused things saying ‘Heads of Terms has to include all the financials’ when I meant ‘assets’. I’m not a financial professional, I’m just bumbling along trying to get my head around things.

    What I was trying to say is that if the club and the BZG have submitted jointly signed paperwork to the PL, they must have agreed on a sale. If they have done that, they must have agreed a price based on all transferable assets, with only the fine detail (date of transfer of ownership and balance of funds in accounts etc) needing to be finalised, something which cannot happen until the PL / FA give their consent in the form of the owners / directors test.

    Obviously it only becomes binding when incorporated into a sale contract, but if Ashley tries to move the goalposts at that point, I think he’d be inviting litigation from the BZG and righteous indignation from all NUFC fans and the media.
