Report – Local Lad Keen On Return To Hometown Club

A few weeks ago, it was reported that Newcastle were interested in bringing 19-year-old defender Lewis Gibson back to the club.

Gibson had left Newcastle in the summer of 2017, feeling that he had little chance of breaking into the Newcastle first team anytime soon. This is what Lewis said when he joined Everton for a fee rising to £6m:

“We sat down and discussed what would be the best route for me to play first-team and make my debut competitively. I didn’t really think at the time that Newcastle was right for me and when I was told about Everton I knew the interest they put into me.

“They pushed for me a lot, compared to other clubs, and I felt like this was the right place for me to develop as a player.

“I’ve been proved right so far and I’ve been happy with my decision. I’ve developed a lot as a player. I imagined myself at Everton and knew there was a clear pathway.

“You see the players coming through, Dom, Jonjoe, Davo and people like that, and I knew there was a trust in young players.

“I knew that one of the main things Everton fans look for is for young players to come through. They want to see the next youth player go through. I’m just hoping to be one of them sooner rather than later.”

It has not quite worked out as planned for the youngster. He has yet to play any senior-level football either at Everton or out on loan.

With just one year remaining on the deal he signed in 2017, there’s a chance Gibson could see out his contract and return to his hometown club of Newcastle.

There is a report in Football Insider stating that Gibson is hoping to do just that.

The article claims that Gibson is pining to return to Newcastle after his difficulty in getting into the Everton first-team. It also claims that the rise of Sean and Matty Longstaff, who the player remains friends with, is a significant factor in his wish to return to Tyneside.

We think it would be just great if Gibson could reunite with Newcastle next summer. Or even for a moderate fee in January.

    hope this can clear the argument up…
    Newcastle United
    On 6 August 2018, Rondón joined Newcastle United on a one-year loan deal, with Dwight Gayle heading in the opposite direction in the same situation.[46] He made his debut five days later, in a 2–1 home loss against Tottenham on the opening day of the season.[47] He scored his first goal in a 3–1 EFL Cup defeat at Nottingham Forest on 29 August.[48]

    Rondón opened his league account on 10 November 2018, scoring twice to help the hosts defeat Bournemouth 2–1.[49] In the second half of the season, his partnership up front with Ayoze Pérez began to take shape and the Venezuelan often assisted the Spaniard for his goals.[50][51][52][53][54] He also maintained a steady record in terms of goalscoring and was neck-in-neck with Pérez until the latter stages of the campaign, finishing with eleven league goals—just one behind his teammate. In May 2019 he was named Newcastle’s player of the year and, in doing so, became the first forward to win the award since Alan Shearer in 2003.[5

    I’ve sussed your deep-seated illogical hatred of Bruce

    Deep in the recesses of our minds lurk many thoughts and feelings
    that we’d like to deny ever having.
    These desires and impulses are so offensive to the conscious part
    of the mind that it launches various psychological defence mechanisms
    to keep them out.

    You have projected your guilt at having once been a Mackem onto a
    former manager of theirs , now at our club.

    Quite understandable

    You need our sympathy not our contempt

    premium or not, if we don’t sort a goal scorer out in january we’re only going one way,and that would be at a much greater cost than any premium on a play would incur,
