Newcastle Reported to Have Agreed Fee And Personal Terms For Right-Back


Swedish football writer Daniel Kristoffersen is reporting that Newcastle have agreed on a fee for Amiens right-back Emil Krafth and that the player is heading to Newcastle for his medical today.

His article in the Espressen claims that Newcastle and the player have also agreed to personal terms on a four-year deal. It appears that a breakthrough in the negotiations between Newcastle and Amiens was achieved late yesterday.

Newcastle had reportedly bid twice for Krafth with both bids having been rejected. The lastest rejected bid was around £4.5m. However, it was claimed that Emil Krafth was desperate to join Newcastle and that he had even returned to Sweden as he missed out on Amiens final pre-season game.

Newcastle seems to have upped their bid by £1m to £5.5m to close the deal. This represents a very nice profit for Amiens who paid Bologna £2m for Krafth this summer.

Emil Krafth– on his way for medical?

Local journalists are also now reporting the same information as well as some outlets in France. However, all are referencing what Daniel Kristoffersen has reported.

Newcastle were supposedly also tracking Bordeaux right-back Youssouf Sabaly who would have cost twice as much as Krafth. If these latest reports are true, it appears that Sabaly will no longer be a target.

Krafth will provide competition at right-back for Javier Manquillo and DeAndre Yedlin. However, Manquillo only has one year remaining on his contract so it will be interesting to see what happens with him and a new contract.

    One of 2 things
    Either Bruce doesn’t rate Yedlin
    or
    He sees him more as a winger

    Modern day full back/wing back

    Quick, high energy, very good on the ball and strong. Rarely beaten too, bit of Kyle Walker about him.

    I think this will be our best signing of the summer. Well done to Carr ?

    Alot of people are putting in alot of hours outside their normal days to make things happen.
    This is not just one mans efforts, this is 11 groups of people. Working behind the scenes, we will be successful in our goal.
    Boycott arsenal is the start.
    This isnt blowing over.

    Jib: or Yedlin is just coming back from a serious injury and operation. I never know what to make of Yedlin. He has a mistake in him and needs Schar or someone to cover. That’s not really a good thing but he is not the worst right back we have ever had.

    Genjikai, well done and thanks for continuing to help us focus on the real problem at NUFC.

    We need to remove the parasite that is Mike Ashley from the club.

    Noticed Aarons doesn’t have a number, pity i think he’s good. Squad’s looking not bad if Krafth signs. 1 more striker and possibly a right/centre midfielder

    This is not a pro or anti boycott message, it is a logistical message. If Sky or Ashley can veto big screen broadcasts (like Genjikai said) in public areas then it is simply never going to happen. May as well not talk about it. I have seen articles where pubs have been fined for pirate broadcasts of games so the giant screens on the town moor is a non-starter.

    Rather disingenuous comments from Ritchie there or does he really live in a total bubble.

    He can’t understand the unrest at the following:-

    1) Mugging off a CL winning manager
    2) Not re-signing the player of the season
    3) Letting an on fire Perez leave
    4) Seemingly making it virtually impossible for any would be buyer in the annual fake over stakes.
    5) Appointing the last choice replacement coach anyone wanted.
    6) Lack of investment in training facilities and stadium maintenance
    7) His oafish behaviour and obvious long held contempt for the fans and blatant lack of ambition for NUFC.
    8) Why is money only finally released to non entities like Bruce and McLaren and not the real deal in Benitez.
    9) Why are our commercial revenues so low.
    10) The lies, deceit, greed, ”where’s the money” etc, etc, etc.

    Calling Mike Ashley honest is like saying… . . . Well I can’t think of an appropriate analogy but you get the drift.

    Why are these questions never put to Ashley in for example the laughingly so called ”interview” with Martin Samuel.

    Replying to @SkySports_Keith
    Going against the grain here, think we’ve done well this window. Squad is stronger. Ashley will go in time, team comes first, we can drive them on. Quit your whining #NUFC miss Rafa buts its history. Howay!

    Geordietom: if I was a betting man (I’m not) I would say 2 of the promoted teams will go down along with one of the bottom 8 from last year.

    Most likely Norwich, Sheffield and Brighton.

    A lot of these pundits like to have a go at NUFC so it is hardly surprising they predict us to go down. I think Jib posted predictions from that BBC guy for last year and he had us relegated then as well.

    Still think we should get Carrol in, if he can stay somewhat fit, he will get some goals and is obviously a plan B to throw on.

    Once again Tony, you put forward the negative. Can you come up with something positive?
    If there is a problem you work around it, find a solution. I don’t know what you do to make a living but I wouldn’t employ you if all you can do is put negatives forward. As Alan Sugar would say “you’re fired”.

    Just having a laugh, but try to be more positive, it’s easy to find holes in things; try to find ways of fixing those holes or circumnavigating them.
