Wednesday, July 1st, 2015 · 71 Comments

Steve McClaren got straight down to work at the first day of pre-season training today – but Newcastle fans still have to wait for the announcement of McClaren’s coaching staff and there was little communication form Newcastle today – other than four youngsters getting their first professional deals.

Those were striker Tom Heardman, midfielder Liam Smith and defenders Jamie Sterry and Macaulay Gillesphey, who were all offered terms back in March, and have all signed their deals today.

Congratulations to all four of them.

Player Gets New Deal But Little Chance Of Newcastle Future

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015 · 26 Comments

It was always going to be touch and go as to whether Sammy Ameobi would sign the contract he has been offered by Newcastle,  after another so-so season last term for the local lad and younger bother of Shola.

But it looks like Steve McClaren doesn’t think Sammy will play too many games at Newcastle this season, as it seems he will be shipped out to a Championship club – with the two who are currently after Sammy being Wolves and Cardiff.

Important Transfer Meeting Planned Today At Newcastle

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015 · 79 Comments

There is news in the Shields Gazette that Newcastle will hold an important Board Meeting today to assess their transfer options, with the club seeming to flounder in their attempts to bring is some of their top targets and not one player has been signed by Newcastle since the season ended 38 days ago.

There was a pledge at that time by the owner that money would be available and the team would be strengthened in the summer.

Newcastle would also be trying to win one of the cups next season for the first time in over eight years.

Newcastle Still In For Top International Defender

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015 · 78 Comments

Abdelkader Jilani is the agent of Newcastle center-back target Aymen Abdennour, and he is doing his best to get as many clubs in Europe interested in his client as possible this summer, so there can be an auction – the fee goes up – and Jilani looks to get a huge pay-day for himself.

Sorry – I should have said  he is looking to get a very good deal for his client.
