Chelsea Midfielder Monitored By Newcastle To Be Made Available By Lampard


The Telegraph have a report out that Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko has failed to impress new manager Frank Lampard and will be made available this summer.

Newcastle were said to be monitoring the French international towards the end of last season when he was on loan at AC Milan.

Milan did not take up their £31M option to buy Bakayoko even though he made over 40 appearances for the club. He returned to Chelsea this summer to fight for his place under Lampard.

However, it is now being reported that Chelsea will listen to any loan offers or permanent deals for the midfielder. We are not sure if Newcastle still hold interest in the defensive midfielder. With Isaac Hayden set to stay at the club, we are not as desperate for reinforcements in that area as we were in May.

A loan deal could be a decent option for Newcastle as we did lose Mohamed Diame this summer, however Chelsea would have to absorb a significant portion of his near £100k/per week wages.

    No thanks. Better options for far less out there, and would rather see Longstaff get a game, assuming he’s still our player.

    Not long for the end of the transfer window. We have upto now only, 1 signing. Let that sink in.

    normal service resumed.

    With a net spend of £5m sounds about right.

    So if mike keeps paying himself back, does that mean the asking price is lowered or will he just make more coin?

    Just want to posit a hypothetical situation but if SD went bust as many seemingly want it to and it went into liquidation, presumably NUFC may also follow suit. If that unlikely event was to happen would we then be in the same position as Rangers were with demotions to a much lower league.

    Presumably Ashlie would then be gone but that would be one hell of a cost. Although he does seem to have tendrils in Rangers still.

    Wilson from Liverpool would be a awesome signing but only as a purchase. No way should we have him as a loan player. Push the boat out on this one. Would be a brilliant piece of business.

    However, we are dealing with Ashley here.

    Yes, we are completely seperate entities. Like mike says, we cant use his money as its SD’s money and tied up in shares. Poor blokes skint

    Don’t know that’s one reason for the question, Ashlie does seem to have a way of tying up his companies which may be one of the stumbling blocks for a sale.

    So whatever SD’s fate might be, the club itself will probably be ok. I know when Parmarlat went tits up it took Parma with it, but it may have been directly financed by the company in that case. Running costs etc.

    Yup, the good news is there is no other connection between NUFC and Sports direct, apart from Ashley.

    No money goes from NUFC to SD, and apparently little / no money goes from SD to NUFC – which is a little unfortunate as they have the ground done up like a bloody great advertising hoarding.

    If SD is in trouble and need bailing out, money can’t be transferred over to them. However, Ashley could simply sell NUFC to raise the necessary cash if he needed to put more in. We live in hope !!!

    I doubt there’s much risk of liquidation, Rangers were in administration for 4 months and couldn’t reach agreement with its creditors so ended up in liquidation. As for us, we only have one creditor M who would very easily be able to pay himself off

    So it’s basically oh maybe we can get Wilson in on loan, screw paying for saint max… Then we end up missing out on both.. If this is true it will shows normal service has been restored.. If we was going to get saint max we would have signed him or at least be further along.. I think it’s dead.. Shame I was dreaming we would maybe get him and maybe 2 full backs.. Just going to end up with loans ect and maybe some underwhelming signing like Austin

    Ref the new shirt. I have asked this before but didn’t get an answer. Am I right in thinking if someone bought the new shirt from another shop like dw sports. They have already purchased the stock from SD/the club. Anything they sell the shirt for over the initial cost is their profit and fat ash doesn’t benefit further. So in theory you can still buy the shirt and still Fock Ashley over.

    Did we honestly expect anything else?
    We just basically replaced an experienced Perez for joelinton.

    No diame, Joselu, Rondon, kenedy replacements yet unless Colback, gayle, murphy, Aarons are their replacements

    But Ashley has made his wedge on the sale to them. A proportion of what you have paid for that shirt is in his pocket.

    Funny, Ed and Neil have in the last few days posted Eight potential signings for the club.

    Wonder how many of just those eight will actually happen, Tick tock time once again at NUFC.

    Just for the record I haven’t bought shirts from MA for over five years, that’s also one for the kid, she was not happy but understood that MA was a piece of shite, now a teenager and understanding money she totally understands why.

    Indeed, why buy anybody when we have Colback. Tough tackling Geordie Pirlo can be played in almost any position.

    No I don’t seriously think SD is going bust either but just wondered how/if it would affect the club if it did.

    The more likely scenario is the Ashlie shares buy back one.

    The Chronicle have finally picked up on the plans for the City Centre bars to offer cheap drinks during the Arsenal match as a way to encourage fans to stay away from the ground.

    https://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/newcastle-united-arsenal-boycott-bars-16650174

    However, they’ve stuck the TalkSport discussion of why we should not boycott front and centre at the top of the article and they’ve listed the reasons behind it as Rafa walking and only one signing though the door.

    They miss the point time and again – the boycott is happening due to 12 years of systematic neglect of the club and abuse of the fans’ loyalty.

    Rafa leaving and the shambles we see at the club now are merely a symptom of Ashley’s ownership, and it’s against that which we are boycotting.

    Sometimes it feels like the Chronicle are actively working against us.

    Mental cricket match, well done to the Ireland players for competing so well on the first two days. This is why Test cricket is so hard, though, if one team gets the upper hand it’s hard to grab the momentum back.

    Hopefully see much more Test cricket from Ireland in the coming years.

    The Chronic are scared they get banned by Ashley and get even less access than they have now; which isn’t a lot!
    Meanwhile Charnley’s working flat out sending us bulletins!
