Newcastle United Transfer Target Will Move To Belgium



Football Italia are reporting that Italian Serie B club Spezia Calcio have accepted a €10m bid from Belgian side Club Brugge. They report that the Nigerian U23 international chose the Belgian club over Serie A side Sassuolo.

Newcastle were first linked with the pacy forward in May of this year. He had a breakout season for Spezia this past season scoring 10 goals along with 12 assists in 30 appearances.

He was deployed both as a striker and winger for the Italian club and was often called the next Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The twenty-one-year-old will travel to Bruges on Monday and have his medical. This is another one of those fringe targets that Newcastle have been linked with this summer.

While he would not have been seen as a replacement for either Rondon or Ayoze Perez, he was one that maybe had a bit of potential.

With his explosive pace, he could do very well in Belgium and may be worth quite a bit more in a few years if he does.

    Jail says perez was bad business? At what point does it become good business. 50mill? None of us wud have said he was worth 30mill and I was his biggest fan. Just because Ashley sold him doesn’t make it bad business. If the, say, Bournemouth chairman did the same with an equivalent player you wudnt have an issue. What are you going to do without an idol Jail? I suppose you can just pan Ashley. I don’t mind that, he’s a slug, I suppose you can just divert your adoration of rafa to a hatred of something else. I just hope you are fair enough to give the next manager a chance???

    £30m for Perez if it was 100% going on top of any funds e.g taking our pot from 60-90m I would be happy with. £30m going into the pocket of Ashley means it’s a horrific deal.

    The first big splash about Khaled was on a Monday morning on this blog. Who knows? But if we get relegated, it will be interesting to see who keeps supporting. I have just about lost my little boy to Liverpool now. At least you locals won’t suffer that ignominy.

    If 40k turn up to Arsenal and you consider that a failure, enough to tempt you back to the next game, imagine if all like you did that – that first boycott would have been a waste of time.

    Dunno about you, but my simple mind tells me that giving the second home match a miss, could see the gate drop to below 40k and as more don’t turn up, then maybe more won’t turn up to the next game. So, 40k becomes 30k etc.

    But, does anyone how many long-term deal ST holders there were last season cos that’ll set the marker – the number of empty seats. They’ll show the true number of boycotters as seats not held by ST holders’ll be sold on the cheap to show bums on seats.

    Listen you simple obsessive oddball, I’ve supported nufc for about 45 years. I’ve travelled all over England to support the lads. Initially by national express coach. No mates, no beer, no big social scene, just an Irish student living in London going to places like sheff weds to watch a game. You question my support, a geeky obsessive oddball who probably hasn’t been to St james’. Ha!

    Interesting comments today, loved the #chopperwatch stuff. Just what does make Ashley’s chopper come up to Newcastle, hover over SJP, go to the airport, down to London and then on to Birmingham on a Sunday? Charnley is the sole Director of the majority of the NUFC companies and, as such, would have to sign any transfer of ownership papers. Him going down to London (and onwards?) is therefore significant.

    Pinsent Masons, acting for BZG according to Companies House, have an office in Birmingham. Could be relevant, I guess.

    Not sure why hover over SJP, however – unless it’s just a cool thing to do if you happen to be about to be given the keys to the place! How easy is it to get permission to hover over a major sports stadium?

    Jail, on the pilot issue (think you said Ashley would have x 2 pilots on standby shifts ready to jump), the aircraft is owned by Ashley but managed by a private company. I think they would be responsible for providing the pilots, ground crew, hangars etc, a bit like when you stable a horse you don’t have to feed it and exercise it yourself.

    Sorry to hear about your son but I can’t say I blame him, he’s no ties to Newcastle other than your support for the club. Given a choice between a club that’s just won the champions league and one that seems to be dying on it’s feet he’s done what any impressionable young kid would do.

    As for Perez given that he wanted away and his mentor has to all intents and purposes been sacked £30m isn’t a bad deal, don’t know why you are getting such a hard time over your comment.

    And the odds on Mourinho coming in have dropped. Not my first choice of manager, but the issues he’s had at Chelsea and Man U have been because of a cabal of ego-filled high-value players who didn’t like him laying down the law and were in place before he took over.

    He won’t find that kind of player at NUFC, he’ll find a group of lads willing to fight for each other and the club and used to being asked to play in a very strict manner to stringent tactical plans.

    Rafa’s squad will suit him quite well, I would think. If he then brings in players with massive egos, then that’s his look-out.

    I’ll support any manager brought in under a new owners regime, but would struggle to support and manager brought in by Ashley, purely for the fact that any such manager would be Ashley’s own puppet.

    Feel like you get that there might be some significance in #chopperwatch.

    Doesnt seem normal to me its movements nor the #sheikhsonaplane.

    However, I am not a billionaire so don’t know how daily routine #chopperwatch goes down

    Aye, Bill, Munster, £30M for a player being booed onto the pitch vs Watford and generally treated with apathy by the majority of the fans for the majority of his stay is actually very good business.

    What I’m sad about is that I think Perez was about to mature into a better player than we thought he could be and we won’t now benefit from that improvement.

    If he had a release clause which was triggered, it’s really a moot point – whether it was good business or not, we had no option than to let him go.

    Foggy, I have no idea how relevant it is, it just seems a bit odd.

    I think Jail said he was in Toon and heard a chopper buzzing round at least near SJP. He’s not one to confirm BS (unlike me for eg who loves a bit of gossip and rumour), so I think it had to have been noticeable at least, so it must have been hanging round for a while fairly low.

    Just unusual behaviour, unless they were winching Charnley up Search and Rescue style.

    Hard to attach a harness to an egg, mind.

    Cheers Essex. I’ll never back off from speaking my mind. The kid needs to see nufc and the city itself. I remember my first visit, back around 1988 I think but could be wrong. Arriving at the train station, that lovely northern grime. Great people. Shopkeepers and people in bars calling me “pet” and telling me about how they loved Ireland and recounted fishing trips to kerry. And me, amazed by this love of their club, their ‘thing’. Fantastic. And now I have to listen to a frog child. Jeez the world is gone mad. Tks Essex, htl.
