Why Are Newcastle Not After Inter-Milan Star?

Saturday, July 4th, 2015 · 127 Comments

Stoke City reached an agreement with Inter Milan about three days ago for the transfer of 23 year-old Swiss International Xherdan Shaqiri, but Stoke are said to be dubious as to whether they can persuade Shaqiri to join them.

Shaqiri was born in Gjilan, in the old Yugoslavia but emigrated to Switzerland with his parents back in 1992,  and joined FC Basel in 2001 and is a product of their Youth Academy.

It’s not always easy to go in front of 1.000 people in a ballroom and give a one hour presentation on your stuff, but when you an executive at a company, that’s part of the job and it’s what you are expected to do.

New Player Sets Sights On First Team Place Next Season

Saturday, July 4th, 2015 · 31 Comments

We watched Karl Darlow’s nufcTV interview yesterday, and the 24 year-old came over very well – and he’s positive but also down to earth.

It will be a big challenge for the goalkeeper who played 111 times for the Nottingham Forest first team, and 18 other first team games while on loan at Walsall and Newport County.

Karl will now go up against Tim Krul and Rob Elliot to be the number one at Newcastle United in the coming season.

We reported yesterday that one of Newcastle’s targets this summer –  25-year-old Yevhen Konoplyanka – who is a Ukrainian International winger who was at Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk,  has agreed to sign for Sevilla.

Leicester Could Beat Newcastle To Charlie Austin

Saturday, July 4th, 2015 · 29 Comments

Leicester are after QPR striker Charlie Austin and put in a bid of £12M for him in the last day or two, which was turned down, but they are reported to be ready to go back in with a higher offer to get their man.

Newcastle seem to be waiting in the wings unwilling to bid that kind of money for the man who scored 18 goals in only 36 appearances last season.

If Newcastle cannot get some of their top striker targets through the door this summer don’t be too surprised if Steve McClaren goes after his former striker at Derby County – 26 year-old Scottish International Chris Martin.

Chris was born in Beccles, Suffolk and joined his home town club Norwich City back in 1998 as a 9 year-old and came through the ranks at Norwich.
