Report – Newcastle Linked With Imminent Bid For Portuguese Defender


There is a strange report coming from Turkey that Newcastle may be about to bid for Lille defender Edgar Ié.

The scenario being described is that Lille are after Trabzonspor attacking midfielder Yusuf Yazici for €17m and will use part of the funds received from Newcastle’s transfer fee of Edgar Ié to fund the deal.

Sport Witness also have a report on this link referencing the Turkish outlets.

There have been no reports of whether Newcastle have bid or are about to bid for Edgar Ié that we can find.

Ié is a Portuguese central defender who also plays right-back. He spent the second half of last season on loan at Nantes.

He originally came from the Sporting Lisbon youth academy before being bought by Barcelona in 2012. He’s had a few moves since then before ending up at Lille in 2017.

We are not sure that Ié would command much of a fee to help offset what Lille are looking to pay for Yusuf Yazici so there may not be much in this report. Though Newcastle seem to be doing a lot of their business in France this summer.

The twenty-five-year-old does have one cap for Portugal and his lastest transfer to Lille was for around €2.5m.

    #7 look at the state of the place in that photo! Is that the back of the outside corrugated bog front and left? That’s not selling NUFC to anyone

    OFD, I agree re what might have happened and yes, Rafa could have and should have, been here far longer. Criminal of Fats to let him go. Some journo said recently that SB would “manage upwards” better than Rafa, and that could be true. Whilst we have money from Perez, at least we are spending , so some form of improvement. I think Rafa’s relationship with Ashley was awful, and I could see why anyone would not trust Fats, so no blame to Rafa for that. On the other side of the coin, Rafa plays Robin Hood / the pied piper everywhere he goes and that was never going to work with Ashley. Maybe SB can be more tactful and get more out of him. I dont think anyone can get excited about SB but…..the tactics do not seem to be those of a dinosaur and our old goalkeeper said same from his time with him. Some Loons on here were screaming that he was a long ball 442 merchant. That doesnt seem to stack up either. He doesnt seem to be scaring away players from signing us and I think if he can build a better relationship with Ashley, then he might get more out of him for facilities etc. Lets just hope for the best. but clearly, the ridiculous screaming about SB and Rafa and guys taking about urinating on Asheys grave and defecating on it, and burning the NUFC shirt, and hoping we get relegated – that seems to be cooling on the blog, thankfully. The hard core Les Miserables, the headbangers, seem to be calming down. No harm.

    Well we’re going to need good defenders as this lad refuses to track back – he has as many dribbles as traore so hopefully he can learn to pass in the final qtr rather than dribbling himself

    “Maybe SB can be more tactful and get more out of him.”

    It worked so well with all the other managers.

    When ASM was first linked I described on here how he’s exciting but frustrating as his end product isn’t what you’d expect.

    However he’s 22. Last season spent a lot of time up front after disputes with balotelli, viera and the club. Stats were 6 goals 3 assists. Not great but not bad in a primarily defensive team.

    Season before, more time on the wing, 3 goals, 7 assists in less games. Scored a couple in the Europa league too if you want to add them.

    To me that’s not too bad for 21/22 year olds. The fact is if he was getting double figures his price would not be the £18m or so we are reportedly getting him for and he’d likely have already got a big move.

    Saying that, it’s frustrating seeing him do all the hard work and mess up simple situations but again, he figures aren’t actually too bad for a 21/22 year old player.

    Surely it must occur to you that if everyone turned up to have a look at how many stayed away before deciding whether to not turn up, then a boycott will by definition fail.
    Wouldn’t it make sense for waverers to stay away and then decide whether a boycott’s shows any sign of developing into a meaningful long-term protest?
    By showing signs of wavering, you and others are gifting Ashley a PR victory. Look back at the miners strikes – solid but as soon as the strikers saw scanning, Thatcher made a meal of it. Learn from history – you know it makes sense!
    *********************************
    Learn from history. The miners were fighting for their jobs and their sons jobs.
    There have been many examples of this united idea failing. Someone calls for it, but then the majority do not follow. It takes very strong feelings indeed to keep all on the same path.
    I’ve called for a boycott. I’d support a boycott.
    Whats the reality. These folks who run the protest groups. What have they actually done to encourage it. Post a few things on social media and thats it.
    It takes more than that.
    Can we show Sky an empty stadium. It’s looking very doubtful, but as I say a week to go.

    Think it’s time to out Rafa to bed, with the squad he had he did a great job and also united the majority of fans as well as doing a ton of community work. His contract ended , he didn’t walk out nor was he sacked.
    He asked for conditions to renew , fatty didn’t like them ..end of story .

    I don’t think Bruce is up to much as a manager and the way he stitched up SW wasn’t great but like pards and McLaren he’s aware the fans will probably never sing his name.

    I won’t be going to home games and I’ve never shopped in Ashley’s tat shops – I will be supporting the lads at as many away games as I can get to – howay the lads

    As a matter of interest.
    Has anyone bought the season tickets you gave up.
    I’ve just checked my section.
    2 single tickets available as a season ticket.

    Mindshaft: I actually went to Steve McClaren’s very first game as “head coach” of NUFC. It was in Milwaukee at the Miller Park. Lascelles gave away a penalty. It was an evening game and after I went back to the hotel bar and heard some slurred Geordie accents. One of them fell off his barstool. His mate took him to the lobby but he returned 5 minutes later to get his drink.

    The problem I have is for some reason we always get these players who do the hard things but have no composure in front of goal or have a terrible final ball or cross. We have been plagued with players like this for the past 15 years. Here’s hoping Joe Lin Toon will finally be one of those guys who can score the types of goal we seem to miss, and cross a ball like we can’t seem to cross.
