French Report – Newcastle Right-Back Target On His Way To Turkey


This past Friday, Newcastle had been linked with an imminent bid for Portuguese defender Edgar Ié as a replacement for target Emil Krafth.

The reports from Friday claimed that Lille were going to use the funds generated from the sale of Ié to Newcastle to help in their attempt to sign Trabzonspor attacking midfielder Yusuf Yazici who is valued at €17m.

L’Equipe is reporting that Edgar Ié will be used in the deal to get Yazici but that he will actually join the Turkish club in part exchange this summer.

Here is a tweet from a Lille blog account that provides more information on the reported deal.

This tweet translates roughly translates to:

In its edition tomorrow, L’Equipe confirms the imminent arrival of Yazici for a sum of 16.5M € + Edgar Ié, who should join the Turkish club at the end of August and for whom Lille will keep 50% on the resale. In addition, Lille will also give up 20% of the added value of a future transfer.

Edgar Ié was seen as a possible target at right-back when earlier bids for Emil Krafth had been rejected by SC Amiens. The original news of Newcastle’s interest in the Portuguese defender came from reports in Turkey.

It still appears as though Newcastle are trying to work out a deal for Emil Krafth. Reports yesterday claimed that another English club were in for the Swede, though which one has not yet been stated.

L’Equipe reporter Flavien Tresarrieu, who first reported of an English clubs interest in Krafth, later followed up and suggested that it may even be a Championship club.

    So Kafth was Niksons first choice? When he was too expensive, with Lee Chumpley deciding who is and who isn’t worth an extra million or two, we move on to the next target. So potentially we will end up with Nicksons second or third choices. Just like after refusing to buy PEA then Bony and finally Gomis we ended up with Riverie.

    My good mate said to me when I mentioned that our transfer policy had us in a constant relegation battle he said to be fair was it any different under Rafa (not the transfer policy) we had two relegation battles under him. I was speechless.

    Saw there was a little Rafa debate on the blog last night here’s my 2 pence worth.

    I love Rafa and will always love this man since being at our club but no way whatsoever is Rafa innocent in all this not one bit.

    What it boiled down to in the end was two very stubborn men who did not want to budge on there views. Rafa could quite easily of signed a 1 year contract but he took the easy option. You can say he was promised this and that but didn’t get it but then you could say Rafa acted like a child in a lot of the situations. 100% in my eyes he was going to China way before it was announced. Imagine if we were sat here and made these signings under Rafa we would all be elated. Life goes on.

    Rafa was very lucky with the emergence of Longstaff and if Shelvey didn’t get injured we probs would still not know what a talent we have on our books. Rafa is known for not giving youngsters a chance and I doubt he would of done it here if it wasn’t for Shelvey getting injured.

    Both men in this are not innocent by a long shot. But because we hate Ashley we throw the blame at him but I think we need to open our eyes a bit more.

    To be fair your mate is right, we were in a relegation fight from kick off because of the policy, we were just very lucky we had a manager who could use his tactical skills and actually take us up the league to mid table

    I think England should do what the Aussies least expect and attack.
    Just tapping away with 4 slips and everyone round the bat when Lyon comes on will so predicably hand all the momentum and impetus to the bowlers and we’ll go down one by one as per.

    I know Burns got his runs but god it was deadly to watch, 200 + dot balls, it was like Boycott x 10.
    The only one who came in and had a go was Woakes who should move up the order and the Aussies made batting look a doddle, racking up runs at a good rate, where England couldn’t even manage to score at 3 an over.

    WTF has happened to Moeen!!

    It’s funny Rafa made Rondon look a world beater, Pulis and Pardew made him look a donkey.

    Blog Columns Transfer News & Rumours
    Newcastle fans react to reports of the likelihood of Javi Manquillo being loaned out

    Many Newcastle United fans on social networking site Twitter feel that the Magpies will make a big mistake if they let Javi Manquillo go out on loan.

    According to The Chronicle, Newcastle United could allow Manquillo to leave the club on loan before the end of the transfer window.

    Newcastle are reportedly looking to sign Emil Krafth and his potential arrival would give Steve Bruce a lot of right-back options to work with.

    Steve Bruce already has the likes of DeAndre Yedlin, Jamie Sterry and Manquillo with him, and it seems he is ready to let the Spaniard go provided Krafth joins the club.

    Newcastle fans feel that Manquillo, who impressed towards the end of last season, has been one of the standout players for the Magpies during the pre-season.

    I know where my confusion about White hart comes from
    My favourite Martin Carthy song is The Famous Flower
    in it are the lines.

    Our king he rode the wood all around
    He stayed all day but nothing found
    And as he rode himself alone
    It’s there he saw the milk white hind

    Oh the hind she broke, the hind she flew
    The hind she trampled the brambles through
    First she’d mount, then she’d sound
    Sometimes before, sometimes behind

    Oh what is this, how can it be?
    Such a hind as this I ne’er did see
    Such a hind as this was never born
    I fear she’ll do me deadly harm.

    Hind / Hart
    doh

    There is enough to hang the transfer policy at the club without seeking to twist events.

    I recalled that we had matched bids for PEA but player chose another club

    can’t be bothered to look up others you mention

    While Manquillo isn’t exactly a popular figure among the Newcastle fans, the decision to let him go when he’s hitting form has left the fans completely baffled.

    Yes. If shelvey wasn’t injured and we had no injury problems, longstaff would never get the chance.

    Rafa is not known for playing or trusting youngsters.

    Can’t believe some here who think rafa like an infallible being.

    Under rafa is some of the worst football I’ve ever seen.

    The problem Bruce has , is as well as having to name
    a squad of 25 senior players , 17 of them have to be home-grown.
    the choice is Dubs Lejeune etc and the new signings so he is limited
    to eight.
    A hell of a dilemma

    that reads like a man bottling it and trying to justify the outcome,
    IE going to games and supporting Ashley, if your happy to go to games that’s fine its your choice,
    its also your conscience and you have to live with it not try and justify it on here.

    100% Rafa has ambition and vision and I wish more than anyone that he could of at least tried to achieve that but he never got the chance and to be fair there’s no guarantees in life so we can’t be so sure he would of achieved that but I believe he would of. Ashley is and always will be a liar and a complete pr!ick among other things. But don’t you see how Rafa was using us as a weapon for his own needs against Ashley. Can I blame him hmmm Ashley could drive anyone to anything. The relationship just got toxic and was bad for the club and Rafa didn’t make it easier he made it worse. This is out of stubbornness not out of love for our club. You only need to see he previous at other jobs to see he wasn’t loved everywhere he went not even close.

    As soon as Rafa was allowed one player for actual money in Almiron our whole style changed. Before he worked with what he had. Certainly no 40M strikers in view then.

    Just a few young players Rafa has worked with

    Inter 2010. Phillipe Coutinho (19) – We all know what happened to him.

    Chelsea 2012-2013. Oscar (21) – Went on to be a key player at Chelsea before moving onto China for silly money.

    Eden Hazard (21) – Now one of the best players in the Premier League.

    Ilovetoon

    I’m sorry who is a Sunderland player, I can’t think whose in your squad this year.

    Mund,
    What good would signing up for another year have done. We wouldn’t have signed those players under Rafa because for 40M we could have bought Rondon and another desperately needed striker.
    magscar,
    My point is we didn’t bid enough and went down the pecking order until we got Riverie

    Going to the games does not mean supporting Ashley, well not to me it doesn’t. It means getting behind the 11 lads chosen on the pitch every week.

    Every fan can choose to do whatever they want but if I choose to go to the game this week I shouldn’t be hated on for it and no other fan should be either.

    Mund,
    I never asked that, the football wasn’t great but I’d have sacrificed that to win something. The football was dire before he got here, we’ve had more 3+ hidings in Ashley’s time than in our entire history.

    Totally agree with you I would of accepted the same. Football wasn’t great under Rafa at times but can’t argue we were a well drilled outfit and it showed. I would 100% accept this football if t meant keeping Rafa and I still believe he could of easily got Ian back into Europe and beyond if he was allowed to.
