Deal Said To Be Announced Soon Now Downgraded To Advanced Negotiations



Mundo Deportivo are again reporting on Joselu and his supposed transfer to Alaves. They first reported early last month of a pending £1.7M move to the La Liga club.

Mundo Deportivo later followed up their initial report by stating that the transfer was practically a done deal but was held up by “certain legal deadlines”. These deadlines were not explained but led to some speculation that it might have something to do with the BZG takeover.

If you remember, it was Joselu who alluded to a “new board” in an interview with Radio Marca at the end of May when he said the following:

“I have one year left at Newcastle, I have possibilities to move but it will depend on the new board that will come to the club”,

“The market in the Premier League ends on August 8, so I am attentive to the movements that may occur with me.”

Joselu– advanced negotiations with Alaves

The latest article from Mundo Deportivo says that Alaves are still very keen on Joselu and are currently in advanced negotiations with the forward. This is a far cry from prior reporting which all but confirmed the deal was about to be announced in a few days.

The report mentions that Joselu is also keen to join Alaves and does not want to see out the remaining one year on his contract.

Mundo Deportivo also states that Alaves will be cautious and patient while hoping that Joselu will join the club after the first few weeks of preseason.

We were a bit shocked to see Joselu back at Newcastle this morning as we had expected an announcement of his departure was imminent. That appears not to be the case though it does look likely he will leave this summer.

It was too good to be true that his transfer was being held up by the proposed BZG takeover. We were suddenly stripped of that notion by the shocking transfer of Ayoze Perez to Leicester City which was announced earlier today.

Well, we will continue to wait and see what happens with the Joselu to Alaves deal. The only positive we can see is that at least we don’t only have Dwight Gayle as the only out and out striker for the time being.

    The PR is shocking tonight

    I think you could probably name a team of only Spanish players who have played in the prem who would have s chance of winning it

    Perez has a chance of being in it, even if he’s on the bench

    Ah so it’s suddenly not that Spanish players are rubbish.

    It’s Newcastle had a couple of duds so now we must be xenophobic.

    Fair enough

    We had Fumaca so Brazilians are all pap too.

    We have shifted lots of goals out of the team
    With any manager here we won’t spend money to replace strikers

    We don’t even have s guy to buy a player let alone actually box on one

    If we do buy a striker it’s not only showing whoever they drag in he has 0 say but also tells everyone we only bought him as we thought he would be profitable

    It’s got nowt to do with football

    That’s the kicker.

    I genuinely believe that there are serious buyers, but something needs to tip the to55er into selling and only the fans can do that.

    The media can be bought, politicians can be bought, the FA is a rich boys club.

    So it’s us or the law and he’s too greasy for the law.
