Leeds United After Newcastle Goalkeeper With One Year Left On Contract


A report in Football Insider says that Leeds United are looking at bringing in Karl Darlow this summer.

Pete O’Rourke writes about the interest:

A Leeds source has told Football Insider that manager Marcelo Bielsa and director of football Victor Orta have drawn up a shortlist of goalkeeping targets and Darlow’s name features highly in it.

The report says that Leeds would bring in Darlow if they can sell Kiko Casilla who they brought in on a free from Real Madrid in January. They reportedly are looking to offload the Spanish keeper this summer even though he was their number one since he arrived at the club.

Karl Darlow was recently mentioned as being a target of Blackburn but that has since been denied by Blackburn boss Tony Mowbray.


With just one year remaining on his contract, we would expect Newcastle to move Karl this summer. Though if the new manager really rates him, he could end with a new contract. At just 28 years old, he still a long career ahead of him.

Newcastle have recently been linked with two Serie A goalkeepers in Juventus’s Mattia Perin and Lazio’s Thomas Strakosha. While Strakosha would likely be out of Newcastle’s price range, Perin is a less expensive alternative who would be an upgrade to Darlow and be able to push Martin Dubravka.

    Can’t bring myself to enter CAM positivity club.

    I will just stay outside by the bins looking for any faint scrap of hope.

    At least our circus doesn’t exploit animals in any way. And the most acrobatic thing is the accountancy.

    Shockingly irresponsible to have got rid of Rafa, Rondon and Perez. The latter 2 with Almiron were really threatening to become something very special with hayden and longstaff in the middle and shaer at the back.

    To go from that to Bruce and Colback is criminally negligent.

    And in the middle east being humble and keeping things in house is the way deals are conducted. Not the way BZG have played it out in the media and now apparently through a radio DJ

    Froggy!

    Where have you been hiding?

    I need to know about the latest PR happenings on the blog and I can’t remember how many times he’s pretended to sell us or who he’s going to pretend to sell us to next!

    Can you update me please?

    Also, whilst you are here could you please say Hiya to JIB and KBA, please.

    Thanks!

    Is Ashley sitting on an offer. Is he trying to get every last penny out of a buyer.
    He might be thinking I’m sitting on a gold mine. Schar, Longstaff and Co could be sold for 100M and more. Plus Prem TV money.
    What he forgets is you have to keep investing all that the club generates, just to compete.
    We can’t work miracles every year.

    Time to let Ashley know that staying is not an option. First give any of his stooge manager appointment stick. Not just stick but real venom. Not because of who they are but because they decide to be Ashley’s stooge.

    Then Boycott Arsenal !

    I’m making judgement based upon my own business dealings with people from UAE, the fact that no one at PL has confirmed any paperwork has been submitted contrary to what was said by BZG in May. The fact that they are apparently using a radio host in the UAE to communicate to nufc fans which in itself is bizarre and more importantly the way the club is carrying on with a new manager search by literally scraping the barrel.

    I’d love to be proven wrong, nothing would please me more than BZG being legit and serious, but they also made moves for liverpool and surprise surprise showed no proof of any funds although that was based more on consortiums as the amounts released was 2 billion.

    Why do you think they are to be believed?

    And also negligently criminal Rotonda. I think it’s a bit of both. So will Steve the Bruce stop playing coy and finally agree to ride into the Toon on his white stallion (ok it’s a ford focus) and save us?

    Refer back to previous post, I clearly wrote that if Ashley had come out and said they’ve not submitted anything I wouldn’t believe him. I dont believe anything that comes out of nufc regime as they always lie

    Lets get this straight, Ashley forced Rafa out of our club

    And Señor Benitez just happened to fall into the best paid
    managers job in world footy.

    How lucky was that !!!!!

    Toon 22 is definitely determined to get his point across geordietom. I think he has accomplished that. We would probably appreciate a little freshening up of his comments. Say add a “Mike Ashley is a knacker” here and there or “Lee Charnley is a vegetable.” Anything new really.

    So…..takeover still on, and Bruce was a smokescreen to divert some attention for a few days.

    We all call each other for being KBA, but dance to every tune that’s played on their fiddle.

    Come on PL, get this thing signed off so we can fall in love with our club again!

    Again you are economical with the truth, BZG was told by Liverpool FC that the club was not for sale when BZG enquired . It didn’t get to the stage of submitting proof of funds, so they can’t be classed as tyre kickers.
