Newcastle In Race For 21-Year-Old Goalscoring Winger

The Sun are reporting that Newcastle are keen on a move for Hull City winger Jarrod Bowen.

However, Everton are reported to be in the lead for the 21-year-old who joined Hull four years ago from Hereford United.

Jarrod has since played 53 games for Hull with 15 goals and 4 assists.

He made his big breakthrough last season with 15 goals and 3 assists in 44 total games for Hull City, so it was quite a season for the youngster.

He won the Player of the Season last season from both the fans and the Hull  City players, and he was outstanding.

Everton are reported to be preparing a bid of £12M for the player who was born in Leominster in Herefordshire.

Everton manager Marco Silva was at Hull when they were relegated the season before last, and he will know all about Bowen.

But Hull City are keen to hold onto one of their best players, and if they are to sell, they will want the fee to be as high as possible.

    Just to keep poking the subject with a stick, I take solace in the fact that Townsend could witness 1st hand, the burgeoning mediocrity of CP and the flourishing promise of NUFC.
    On a minor point, the words “3 billion” doesn’t really have as much impact as 3 THOUSAND MILLION”!!
    And, re: MA, I simply don’t think toon supporters will ever get any consolation from him until he either
    A. sells up or
    B. Keeps stuffing pies and booze down his throat until suddenly one day…………….

    I think people are being a bit harsh on Townsend. Not for the first time.

    Some points to bear in mind:

    1. However well Kenedy played for us, Townsend had a far bigger impact for us in his six months here. He was our best player by a mile. We were relegated because of his teammates, who, as Lascelles said, “couldn’t give a sh/t”. You can hardly blame him for walking away from such a toxic atmosphere.

    2. Townsend didn’t owe the club any loyalty. He did what he was paid to do. The fact he signed a relegation clause was due to our precarious league position, and his wanting to push for an Endland place. I’m sure the player himself would have preferred a loan deal – of which he’s had umpteen – but Levy insisted on a sale (with lots of wrangling over the fee). Without a relegation clause, I doubt Townsend would ever have agreed terms. In effect, it became another loan deal in all but name.

    3. The fact we sold him for £13m doesn’t mean he wouldn’t now be value at £20m. He was already undervalued at £13m, but that was effectively another penalty for our relegation. We made no profit on him, despite his outstanding form (which should have taken him to the Euros), because a release fee was already agreed. Add in the insane inflation that’s occurred over the past two years, and it’s a perfectly reasonable value.

    None of this means I’d necessarily take him back. Between him and Kenedy I’d take the latter, mainly because of his age and the fact he has the potential to become a £50m player in the next few years. There’s always an uncertainty going back for players, but if Rafa does really want him he should be fully welcomed, and we know he’s up to the job.

    Jib – Charnley might have some Spanish but does he have the vocabulary for “please sir can I have some more?” or ” youv’e got to be fking joking, how much ?”
