Nile To Go Out On Loan To Blackpool – The Loan Ranger

News last night that Blackpool will sign Newcastle’s 20 year-old England U20 striker Nile Ranger on loan.

Nile Ranger – on loan to Blackpool

Blackpool manager Ian Holloway has already signed former Sunderland striker, 37 year-old Kevin Phillips, and they are ready to sell their top striker, DJ Campbell.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the funds the Seasiders get from the sale of Campbell will be used to buy Leicester City’s Waghorn and take Nile Ranger on loan.

Apparently Nile Ranger’s proposed permanent move to Blackpool fell through yesterday, when the 20-year-old striker failed to agree personal terms with the Seasiders.

That was after Newcastle accepted a £1.5M offer for the player – this piece of news is being reported by the Daily Mail.

We don’t know if the loan deal for Ranger will be for the full season,  or initially through December, but we expect it is for the full season.

And Ranger signed a five-year contract at St James’ Park just last October, and now Pardew has allowed the Londoner to go out on loan,  where he will get some first team experience, after the permanent transfer fell through.

But this seems to us a good deal for Newcastle, because Nile will get regular games, and Newcastle can then see how he does at Bloomfield Road, and decide whether they will want to keep him on Tyneside.

Comments welcome.

    Great news, I think he is good just needs to add goals to his game, however having said that he never really got a chance.

    This Is good news., We don’t want to loose him. He has great potential and is still very very young., It would have been a big mistake to sell him ,sSo well done Newcastle United. .He is with a good club and a great manager that will do him real good.

    This is the best deal for Nile and Nufc. Blackpool play nice attractive football, it will be a great place to learn. They play in the championship so Nile will probably score a few goals and play a few games which will get his confidence and he will be working under a great manager in holloway who will help him a lot. It would of been tragic to sell Nile he has so much potential but it takes time and this should help him massively.

    If its true of course 🙂 is it actually true as the article makes out or is it just paper talk? A bit late for new transfer rumours though.

    The best news all day. He needs constant games and goals to improve as player, to improve his confidence, to improve his chances in the first team and to raise his value.Everyone’s a winner. I was always against the idea of selling him.

    best thing, being put on the transfer list hopefully shocked him into a change in attitude, none of this gangster 1st footballer 2nd bollocks, loan deal ideal as he obviously has a fair amount of potential.

    This would be a perfect solution all round. Ranger get to work with a great, no-nonsense manager, will play a lot more games and hopefully start fulfilling his potential without epl/nufc [ressure on his shoulders as well.

    Once he starts scoring a few goals on a regular basis, he should thrive and become the player most of us think he can be. Great move for all.

    glad it’s justa loan , there is no reason to sell the lad , his lack of goals was just a settling in thing i think , he had the chances and put himself in the positions he just fluffed them , every season prior he’s bagged goals there is no reason to think he cant do it in the premiership going off his all round performances .
    carrol took many a year to take off and if you ask me ranger has better all round ability than judas

    I was dismayed ( I still am) that Newcastle would even think of parting with Ranger and especially for a quick buck 1.5 million..
    Ranger may be as unruly as people say. He may make stupid choices. But the fact is Newcastle did not do right by this lad who needed careful handling, regular games out of the Premiership limelight to sort out his game and to show him the way to behave to become a proper star player. Instead he was kept hanging around with too much attention and too much time on his hands mainly because we failed to secure first choice strikers to allow him the loan spell he needs.
    More by accident than by design it looks like all parties may have just have got the best deal possible.

    Finally a sensible decision about Ranger!

    I never saw the sense in selling the sense in selling the kid for next to nowt.

    He’s obviously immature and a bit of a “gansta” pratt right now but his talent will come back to haunt us if we let him go, guaranteed.

    This way “mad man” Olly will sort out that attitude of his, give him plenty of games (hopefully) and send him back to us as Ranger 2.0-faster, better, more mature and hopefully with a map to direct him to the back of the net etched in that heed of his!

    Glad its only a loan as I’d like to hope he comes back a much better player.

    But is letting Ranger loose in Blackpool a good idea? I mean, didnt we shove him all the way out in seaham or something to keep him out of trouble here? haha.

    If we do loan him out it should only be until christmas, look at when we loaned Routledge out to QPR and then we got all of them injuries and we couldnt bring him back, we should just loan him until christmas and then if it ends up longer put a clause in the deal so that we can recall him at any time. Im only think of the ACON as well because Demba Ba will be go off to that after christmas and possibly Ameobi will be as well, so we will need all of the striker we can get after christmas thats even if we do sign another striker.
