Newcastle Player Now In High Demand For Potential Move


Newcastle winger Jacob Murphy is drawing interest from multiple Championship clubs. Inside Futbol have a report that the 24-year-old is being tracked by Derby, Fulham, Sheffield Wednesday, and Huddersfield for a season-long loan move.

Jacob will find if hard to break into this Newcastle squad this coming season. Making it even tougher will be Steve Bruce’s desire to use a 3-5-2 formation with no traditional wingers. Jacob Murphy has made a few appearances this pre-season as a second striker and most recently he made a cameo at right wing-back against St-Etienne.

With Newcastle looking to trim the squad to 25 by Friday, we will likely see a few of our fringe players loaned or maybe even sold over the next few days. We would expect Jacob to be one of those players. He will not get much playing time this season and really needs to have first-team football to aid in his development.

Murphy had a mixed spell on loan the second half of last season at West Brom where he made 15 appearances. With only two years remaining on his contract, Jacob has just not made the grade on Tyneside. He was our top transfer two summers ago when he came in from Norwich for £12m but has failed to have much of an impact.

Jacob Murphy– on loan at West Brom last season

A loan move is the most likely scenario for Murphy for this season as we doubt we will be able to sell him over the next few days. A loan with an option to buy could also be a possibility but there was no mention of any permanent options in the report.

We would expect to see players like Jack Colback, Achraf Lazaar, and also Henri Saivet to be moved over the next few days as well. There is also some increasing interest in Dwight Gayle from West Brom and Leeds. He may be another player that will be moved on despite Steve Bruce’s assertions that he will play a part next season.

However in Gayle’s case, we may see him sold for a sizeable fee. Leeds have just sold their striker Kemar Roofe to Anderlecht for £7m so they will need a replacement. Last season they had a horrid time with depth at the position so they are likely to not make the same mistake again.

West Brom also are short on strikers as Jay Rodriguez has joined Burnley and they are reportedly trying to get Dwight Gayle to the Hawthorns.

Incidentally, Leeds also may have won the race for Inter Milan nineteen-year-old Facundo Colidio who was linked with Newcastle last week. However, he will most likely not be seen as a replacement for Roofe.

    Doubt he would get a squad place anyway. I think our 25 will be (optimistic with a couple of signings)…

    Dubs, elliot, darlow

    Schar fernandez lascelles lejuene dummet clarke(or sold and replaced)

    Ritchie, Manquillo, willems, yedlin

    Shelvey longstaff ki Hayden maia(if signed)

    Almiron stMax joelinton muto gayle(or sold and replaced.

    Add in maybe Aaron’s and a new RB to complete the 25.

    HWA,
    Never mind your bollorx about formula 1, 15 points differences and algorithms. Put in simple layman’s terms, despite spending nearly 60M on two players we are 9/4 and fifth favourites to go down and are tipped by most journalists to head back to the championship. If Rafa had of been given the reported 61M to buy Rondon, give Perez a new deal and spend on the lads he’s been targeting over the last year or two, do you think the odds of going down would be the same.

    Gosh, hilarious!

    Just pointing out another player not accounted for in Markaccus squad. He may wish to mark him down as to be sold or whatever. I will just ignore childish comments and leave them for the other children to squabble over.

    Kets is going to go ballistic when he sees that Wilson is going to Bournemouth on loan. Personally I think it’s the best choice for the lad, although I would have loved to see him with us. He’s going to be a cracking player for Eddie Howe, especially with Brooks being out for so long.

    Yes good point. Atsu is probably a seller for me. Like Murphy, he’s really just a winger. Aaron’s can slot in at LWB. Not sure Atsu can imo

    Yikes, was just making a little joke. Yes, you were obviously pointing out that Atsu was missing from Markaccus’s squad.

    I apologise for upsetting you ToonTime.

    I would get rid Murphy but keep Atsu, he would only be a bit part player but can stretch a defence late in the game as one of the top 2 if we need to. But get rid if we do sign another attacking player

    Bring back Joselu, I’d rather see him than the ginger sack.

    How can you give a figure when you’re relying on Brewcey getting 45 points. I’m stating as FACT the odds on us finishing 8th with the conditions, which aren’t unrealistic at all, being met are more likely the same as us going down now and we’d have all the journos predicting 8/10th instead of bottom to 18th.

    I think we’ll have a real go at 17th but may fall short by a place or two, however with Var we may scrape enough pens to finish 16th.

    I’m not relying on anything. I’m asking for a a Rafa difference quotient relative to Bruce, to be applied to whatever tally we end up on. Then we could consider whether that would have been progress under Rafa.

    It’s a simple concept. One which none of the Rafa nut-huggers seemingly want to answer.

    HWA,
    How can anyone give such a figure when we don’t know how many points Brewce will get, if he gets 20 are you saying it’s progress if Rafa got 35. It really is simple, we’d be roughly the same odds to finish in the top ten as to get relegated if we hadn’t of appointed that cabbage and managed to keep on to Rafa.

    I see the problem.

    They either have to match their incessant rhetoric of Rafa still being world-class, elite etc and Bruce being a complete numpty and go very high on the Rafa difference quotient or, go lower than my proposed 15 and admit Rafa isn’t as much as a difference maker as that.

    Ultimately both conclusions will invalidate their reasoning for the boycott.

    Why is it the people who aren’t bothered about Rafa leaving cant let it go and constantly bring him up.

    Any discussion and its ” yeah, and I bet Rafa would do it different, he isn’t a god”

    Munster etc cant let it go and I’ve not seen one day when the goon squad haven’t mentioned Rafa.

    Then like a cats chorus

    “you Rafa lovers wont let it go”

    Theres quite a few deluded individuals on here who piss all over and say it’s raining.

    That’s why I’m asking for YOUR input on how much difference he makes.

    I proposed 15.

    I’m asking those who think Bruce is equal to Carver, McClaren etc and Rafa is the centre of the universe to give their figure. You’re one of them.

    Given the rhetoric I’d expect much higher than 15pts, but open to reasoning to the contrary.

    Squad as is it’ll be more luck than judgement if we aren’t in the bottom 3.

    I dont want to see Nufc relegated so I’ll say 16th.

    I’ll give it until November before Bruce has Pardewed the organisation and defence Rafa instilled.

    Jail – despite spending nearly 60M on two players we are 9/4 and fifth favourites to go down and are tipped by most journalists to head back to the championship.

    So what??

    Have the bookies seen Al, ASM and Jo play together?

    Do the bookies know who else we are going to sign?

    McNulty predicting we’ll finish bottom because the club is in turmoil?

    What turmoil is he talking about?

    My prediction, for what it is worth, is that we’ll get c50 points and finish well above a relegation spot.

    I also predict we’ll score 50+ goals with Jo getting 15+, ASM and Al 8+ and S Longstaff, Shelvey 5+ and Schar, and Lascelles 3+..
