Newcastle Still Scouting Summer Target But Will They Have The Funds To Make Move In January?


The Daily Express are reporting that Newcastle and Southampton have sent scouts to watch Hull City’s Jarrod Bowen this season. Newcastle had also scouted Bowen during a pre-season friendly against Emil Krafth’s Amiens.

The 22-year-old was a top target this summer, but Newcastle were reportedly put off by the £20m price tag Hull put on their young star. The report states that both Newcastle and Southampton are willing to go back in for Bowen this January and are willing to meet the 22-year-old’s £20m price tag.

However, with Bowen’s contract only running until next summer, could he be available for less than the reported £20m? We think that will depend on how many suitors Bowen has in January. If he continues banging in the goals at his current rate, there could be a lot more clubs lining up for his services than just Newcastle and The Saints.

Jarrod Bowen– could be in high demand this winter

Bowen already has 4 goals for Hull after scoring 22 last term. A lot will also depend on where Hull lie in the table come January. They are currently in 20th position in the Championship. They are likely not going to make a promotion run this season.

However, if they still linger near the relegation zone come January, they could see Bowen’s goals as vital to their survival efforts. Therefore, they may not be willing to part with him and rather risk losing him in the summer for nothing.

The Chronicle have a report stating that Newcastle may only have around £15m to spend in the winter. Their report adds together the likely amount paid in agent fees and all other costs that would have come out of the summer transfer budget. The amount they come up with is £75m from the £90m available.

If that is the case, then a move for Bowen may not even be possible if Hull City hold to their £20m valuation for the player. It would be truly a shame if they miss out on such a promising English talent this winter.

    There are players we could sell if we need to make the shortfall. Murphy doesn’t look like a PL player in truth. Needs to up his game in the Championship by all accounts. Gonna lose money on him anyway, get him off the payroll and get what we can..
    Aaron’s might have a great season in Div One and interest a Championship team. One way or the other, if we want him we can get him.

    It’s the same thing. You state things that are not factually correct then call someone who disagrees a supporter of Ashley’s.

    Ye hibbit shocking isn’t it. With the owner we have we must decide between putting surplus’s funds into the first team or fixing the lifts. Any decent owners would just fund the stadium repairs and upgrades of facilities.

    + I never said no money at all I agreed that he is paying idiots like KB to be around the club and I’m sure that’s not purely for his advisory service or he would have been sacked by now!

    Ok Jane so why not Tsunki as it’s shorter than Tarquin? So you are putting forward the convention of calling each other by a made up name designed to be childishly irritating? Ok. So you don’t mind being call bland comment yellow bag or bcyb as it’s shorter than Jane?

    Has Munster gone missing or are you covering for him bcyb? I’m wondering how a simple question is puzzling our master tactician and tiny palm gripper.

    Mmm, wonder how far we could take this? The Top Ten things Ashley is not guilty of, but would be a good way to get rid of him.
    We’ve had murderer.
    Obviously nonce has to next. This is a no victim list, just a bit of fun. OK.
    Fraudster. Close to the bone but not yet proven.
    Kidnapper. Definitely not one, but would be nice to see him cuffed and carted from Head Office.
