Championship Striker Target On His Way To Southampton

The Telegraph and other outlets are reporting that Southampton have struck a deal with Birmingham City for their striker Che Adams.

Newcastle were most recently linked with having an interest in Adams a few weeks ago but he has been on the radar since way back in 2014.

Earlier today it was reported that Southampton reached an agreement with Aston Villa for left-back Matt Targett on a deal initially worth £14m but can rise to £17m.

It seems like Southampton will waste no time in spending that cash as the deal for Che Adams is said to be worth £15m. The deal will be finalized on Monday.

Adams will likely replace former Newcastle target Charlie Austin who Southampton are desperate to sell this summer. The soon to be thirty-year-old is being targetted by Aston Villa and Sheffield United who both gained promotion from the Championship this past year.

Che Adams– heading to Southampton

Adams will join Danny Ings whose loan spell from Liverpool last season is set to be made permanent on Monday.

The twenty-two-year-old Adams had a very productive season at Birmingham City under Garry Monk last season. He scored 22 goals in 48 total appearances for the Championship club.

While this transfer will not unsettle too many Newcastle fans, we are reminded that Newcastle United currently only have Dwight Gayle, and a couple of young strikers in Elias Sorensen and Yannick Toure as out and out strikers at the club. This is under the assumption that Joselu’s move to Alaves will be finalized soon.

    Even if he’s not there his wife/family aren’t going to be happy about this and could just push him over the edge to sign the deal.

    Remember I put a post out about London Magpies demo outside ashLIE’s house the other day?


    And here



    Fair play to them, if I could be I’d be there too – So people of Newcastle, demonstrate in front of Charnley’s house? Make him uncomfortable.

    It’s the only way.

    And it’s goodnight from me.

    Don’t know where to start with that article. No direct quotes, no update on takeover, just a “don’t blame me”. Why is a man, who so deliberately sets out to make peoples lives miserable, somehow bothered and never to blame?

    He needs a psychologist.

    Am I the only one who is a bit repulsed about fans wanting to to converge on Ashleys and/or Charnleys home? And if there is an incident during one of these ‘peaceful’ protests, what sort of message does that send out to any prospective buyers? Please buy our club but if we end up disliking you we will target your home and your families

    Been waiting for someone to say it was a cunning plan to sack Rafa and because it was BZG who didn’t want him. Was this planted with The Mirror by Ashley stooges – the preferred media partner? Hiya KBA. If the takeover doesn’t go through will anybody go back and ask for an explanation for this story? The sources etc. Should remember this guys name John Richardson to see what else he comes up with. Remember Ashley set a 2 week deadline a couple of days ago. So, Ashley doesn’t know what is going on but sacked Rafa at BZG’s behest??????

    Arteta hasn’t moved today Jib. Still available at between threes and sixes. Ignore Unibet – they don’t update.

    Today’s move is for Dyche into 11/2 2nd fav with Paddy P. He’s still much bigger elswhere so I don’t think there’s anything in it.

    Skybet have got hold of your Rui Faria tip. They are the only ones quoting at 14/1.

    Bad luck with your pitman’s derby tip btw.

    For those looking for a glimmer of hope, as we all of course do.

    Ashley puts a two week deadline for the sale to be nailed down. If the sale progresses, BZG appoint their man (ideally Rafa) in time to save our season, if not, Ashley goes back to Rafa with an improved deal and he comes back.

    Let’s face it though, on top of the cynical and farcical 9 years prior to Rafa’s arrival, Ashley had 3 years with Rafa to either sell, or work with him to build a better club, and look where we are.

    Realistically, there’s a cinder in snow’s chance of this working out.

    Boycott, march, petition, demonstrate, write to the City and to the papers. If you can’t bring yourself to stay away, then join in with the Toon Army when the Ashley Out chants go up and if they’re on the pitch confronting the Director’s box, get out there with them.
    Choose whatever way suits you and keep on at it.

    Ashley Out.

    Macas – what’s crazy is that it’s got this far. How Mike Ashley can carry on as is beggars any kind of belief. That a man would actively seek to be utterly reviled by anybody is weird, but very close to insanity.

    Tony – it just smells of the usual high-octane BS Ashley simply loves putting out. I can’t even work out if Ashley thinks everyone’s THAT stupid, or does this knowing everyone knows he’s lying. Again we’re down to some kind of pathological illness. “V-signs? Nah, I was scratching my neck”. He really is THAT guy.

    Macas: I said on the last article that I disagree with targeting Charnley’s house. Dubai Micky posted his address on here. That is out of order and so is saying the SD stores should be firebombed. I am being ridiculed for questioning a boycott and the blog rockstar gets away with this.

    Nicky – I get what you’re saying, but it’s like offering a Brexit referendum; you’re letting people make up their minds and the spectrum of ignorance is wider than you can possibly imagine. You simply shouldn’t give people choices in issues where there is severely limited understanding.

    Attending SJP is similar, if a bit localised (!). Going is stupid. It shows we accept Mike’s stance on the club. The “I’ve been gannin’ for 47 years” gang need to be told what their continued support for Mike’s regime is actually doing. The one and only course of action, which will get the PL, the FA, the precious few other sponsors, and perhaps even UEFA/FIFA involved is to empty that stadium. Not half empty. Not 40,000 deep. But empty-empty.

    Micky the ball tosser,
    I think if the sale dosent go through(not looking likely IMO)there’s zero chance of ash going back to Rafa ( Rafa was for ash the worst kind of employee ,other than of course guaranteeing him prem status year on year)
    And unless there was a very public apology delivered by Ashley for the way he released that statement I think Rafa would tell him to jam it anyway.
    I mentioned the other day the only way these things can ever get sorted is with a highly skilled diplomat who can find a solution where neither side looses face .
    Now nufc have lee charnley so think we will leave it there .
    But the slug now coming out in the mirror saying BZG told him to do it …lol if he had said it was an older kid made him do it he would have more credibility .

    Nedders – Who is to say that your approach is more valid or intelligent than anyone else’s? Surely it’s up to each individual to make their own mind up about what course of action they take, instead of being bullied and ridiculed if they don’t agree with what others think. Nicky wrote a decent post there. If fans start attacking each other then we are beaten before we have even started.

    Arteta comes in (metaphorically speaking of course) Manages unreasonably well in the first half of the season and there’s 30 points on the board by January, there’s a chance we might be able to ‘risk’ a cup run with a comfortable finish almost guaranteed, unfortunately the newly found patsy realises he’s just made himself a victim of his own success and, despite repeated assurances from “please call me Lee” Sean Longstaff is sold for 25M with Churners saying that 25M for a youth product can’t be turned down, but don’t worry there’ll be a 100K bonus and we’ll take the flak as he relishes the thought of embarking on a new record losing streak.

    Another way of looking at it for the new owners( if they even exist) could be..
    As long as you act in the best interests of this club then you have nothing to worry about .
    If they did take us over they could do a lot worse than offering Alan shearer a role within the club ,media savvy and very much can help them avoid the toxic situation we find our selves in now.

    This is serious stuff. Charnley is complicit in affecting all Newcastle supporters lives. No way he can just get on with his cozy life while supporters suffer. His house must be subject to peaceful protest. We have been too kind to them and they walk all over us. He should resign anyway.

    Moonraker: I totally disagree. His family should not be brought into this.

    Tsunki: I have no problem answering your questions. I don’t object to protests. I wonder what boycotts will do and how many will participate, as I have already said. I might be persuaded otherwise if I had any faith in the organisers. I don’t know any personally and therefore may be shot down, all I can judge it by are the effectiveness, or lack thereof, so far.
