Joelinton Deal Is Progressing But Length Of Contract Is Sticking Point


Goal journalist Ronan Murphy has tweeted the following update on Newcastle’s pursuit of Hoffenheim’s Joelinton.

It seems that things are progressing but the length of the contract is a sticking point. However, we would imagine this should not be enough to sink the deal.

The club will most certainly not want to give the player just a three-year deal if they are spending £36m on him. Since Joelinton is just 22 years old, the club will try to tie him down to a longer contract.

This is some confirmation that Newcastle are trying to agree to personal terms with Joelinton which shows the deal is progressing.

If reports are to be believed, the transfer fee should be £36m which hopefully will already be close to being agreed between the two clubs.

There was a report yesterday in Futbol Insider that Newcastle were concerned the news of this transfer was made public by Hoffenheim. If another club comes in for him, that could potentially raise the fee.

Newcastle are in the driver’s seat for Joelinton at the moment. We would think they can work out the length of the contract with the player’s representative without too much of an issue.

    I’m amazed anybody would want to sign for us for any amount of years?

    barkel, from what I’ve seen of him (admittedly, not that much), he hasn’t stood out as a great. Average for the German league I would have said.

    He won’t be sticking around if/when we’re in the Championship.

    According to German outlet Sport1, Joelinton’s proposed move to Newcastle has been ‘held up’ because of a contract disagreement.

    They claim that the 22-year-old wants to sign a three-year deal, but the club prefer him to sign for four years.

    This doesn’t sound like the sort of issue that can’t be overcome, however it wouldn’t be Mike Ashley’s Newcastle United if there wasn’t some sort of late drama!

    In all honesty, I find it a little hard to believe that a 22-year-old would be demanding a three-year deal. That said, I don’t think anyone would blame him if he didn’t want to commit too many years to Mike Ashley and Steve Bruce’s Newcastle United!

    Considering we’re severely lacking in attacking options and have just 21 days to sign at LEAST 5-6 quality players, let’s pray this one gets wrapped up without any issues as soon as possible

    Only Lee Charnley could risk scuppering a club record deal that was described as ‘imminent’ by several reputable outlets in Germany just yesterday…

    this is from talk of the toon …

    I do appreciate Ed/Neils articles so this next comment is not aimed at either it is aimed at NUFC.

    WHO THE F*%K CARES!?

    I honestly want to see a show of hands from anybody who feels excited by NUFC signing any player.

    It means nothing.

    I will not support this team in any way whilst owned by MA.

    I truly hope SW take the harshest legal action against NUFC.

    No longer can fans keep separating owner from club. The owner is this club. NUFC are a disgrace and it doesn’t need to be said every time “under Ashley”.

    NUFC IS MIKE ASHLEY IS SPORTS DIRECT.

    I will not be supporting NUFC until he’s gone.

    Question: Even if we do get some signings over the line…are you going to be showing them any love? If so how?!

    I’m boycotting (in my own way, as I’m not local)…already ditched Sky, and havent bought a shirt in a couple of seasons! I applaud the fans who are standing up to MA. I would love to see an empty stadium, to see how the media react.
    Perhaps a handful of Wor Flags could go in with a huge banner to fill the empty seat, whilst protests take place outside…
    Support the team by leaving them messages on their social media accounts, and/or visiting the training ground?

    Every little helps I guess!!

    Regarding the debate, wether to boycott games or not to because of loyalty to club and players etc.
    Let me please give my twopenneth worth, with this anology.
    If your daughter was being abused by her husband or partner , beatings etc. But she didn’t want you to get involved because she loved him. I for one would do something about it because of my love for my daughter even if it did upset her. It is the best thing for the long term . Sometime a bit of tough live goes a long way. Boycott every match until thus leech leaves .
