Report – Newcastle Deal Now In Jeopardy Of Being Hijacked

The Sun is reporting today that Newcastle’s move to sign Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham could be in danger as Hull City look to seemingly hijack the deal.

Earlier this month we were hot favorites to sign the player but the deal has stalled,  probably because his agent is waiting for new improved offers (for himself) coming in before he OKs any move.

Such is the way transfers work these days, with the agents making massive money for themselves and controlling the deals and that is a huge danger to the game in England.

New Hull City manager – Leonid Slutsky

The Sun’s report is that new Hull manager Leonid Slutsky is said to be the key to any deal for Tammy.

He’s a 45 year-old Russian and said to be a good friend of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich and Slutsky thinks he can get a deal done with the Chelsea owner for young Abraham.

But Tammy has already spent a full season in the Championship with Bristol City last season and scored a massive 26 goals in 50 appearances.

Surely Chelsea now want him to have a season in the Premier League where he will start lots of games.

Rafa Benitez is said to have promised Chelsea manager Antonio Conte that’s what he will get at Newcastle United.

So it may be a nice story, but for the good of Tammy Abraham it makes absolutely no football sense at all.

But with his agent delaying any move until at least next month, these are the types of (daft) stories we will see about Abraham – all kinds of clubs from all over the place coming in to presumably hijack the Newcastle deal.

If this keeps going on like this, it may be better for Newcastle to start looking elsewhere and not be jerked around by his agent.

What do you think?

All donations go to Cancer Research UK.

Emma’s partner Danny lost a work colleague a couple of years ago to cancer and to had to watch the effects chemotherapy had on his body and it was heart wrenching to him as his friend had terminal cancer, but doggedly kept coming to work and plodding along.

Sadly he died in hospital and Emma’s auntie also had breast cancer but luckily came through it and was giving the all clear in the end.

So the two ladies are doing a great thing in raising funds to fight this disease and there are new treatments being developed all the time.

See if you can donate and help them reach their goals – Here’s the donation page

    The Tammy Abraham saga is becoming a bit long winded now. Stop beating around the bush and make your fcuking mind up.

    If Abraham cant make his mind up after 3 wks then he is,nt for us, and he will never be truly ours anyway, i would turn our back on him and let him stew. If he decides to join Hull in the champ then it just shows his lack of ambition.

    Sick to my back teeth of hearing about Tammy, he scored goals in the championship but so did Gayle, move on from him if he can’t make up his mind up about a season long loan let him rot in Chelsea reserves

    So sick of Tammy and the way our transfer window is going so far. There are many great deals for us out there yet we don’t seem bothered; for example Grosicki and Sandro Ramirez both very good players and an improvement on what we have and we can have both for under £20m. Yet here we still are with nothing done getting constantly outbid by everyone in the league.

    We really gotta get our finger out and start signing ffs! It may still be early but I can’t understand why we are not at least attempting to buy the players like the ones mentioned above, they are there for the taking.

    Are we trying to sell before we buy? If so we aren’t doinng it right. We are missing opportunities to sign good players in now and bed them in to the team in preseason.

    What signings pronto.

    If Tammy wants to go to Hull and play mid Championship league football on a wet Tuesday night in Bury that’s his call. He may also like to check out Hull if he’s thinking about the night life rather than his football career. He might get a shock.

    Alternatively he’s a bright lad and is waiting for our Chinese takeover to see how much more salary he can squeeze out of the deal or rather his Agent is.
