Newcastle Target Offered New Three-Year Deal


Jarrod Bowen put in some performance as a striker for Hull City on Saturday. Normally playing as a right-winger, the 22-year-old started the game as an out and out striker for the first time this season.

He bagged 2 second-half goals sealing the victory for the Tigers. It brought his season tally to 9 and his career total to 46 over the past three years.

Newcastle have been linked with making a run for Bowen this winter. He will likely cost between £15-20m if he remains on his current contract. However, there are reports that Hull City have offered him a new deal.

Bowen’s current deal is due to expire at the end of this season, but Hull have an option to extend it another year which they likely will do.

Jarrod Bowen– has a decision to make on his future

According to the Hull Daily Mail, Hull’s vice-chairman Ehab Allam has tabled a new three-year contract for Bowen.

Bowen will have a decision to make now as he ponders where his future lies. There is genuine interest from Newcastle and Southampton, and it is his ultimate goal to play Premier League football.

This is what Hull City coach Grant McCann said recently about Bowen:

“I spoke to him a couple of weeks back about the club wanting to speak with him and he said he loved it here. He wants to play in the Premier League with Hull and it’s as simple as that. He’d love to get to the Premier League with Hull one day, that’s really clear to see.

“That doesn’t mean he’ll sign a new contract tomorrow. It has to be right for everyone. We’re in no rush. He’s got this year and he’s got next year. It’s not as if he could be leaving soon. Jarrod is focused on his football.”

Hull City have moved up to 12th place in the Championship table by winning their last two matches. They are 5 points behind Bristol City for a spot in the playoff places.

Bowen is obviously enjoying his football at the moment with Hull; however, a return to the top flight is far from a certainty at this moment. Jarrod will have to think long and hard about signing a new deal. If he does, Hull is likely to command a very high fee for his services.

If Bowen refuses to sign, he could be a real bargain in the £15-20m range.

Bowen could also wait to see how Hull get on this season and if they can mount a promotion push. He could then make a decision on his future in the summer.

    I should think he’ll also be waiting to see if a relegation candidate might be after him!

    Matron – ever since you allowed him to call the numbers at the lunchtime housey housey and then allowed him to ring the dinner gong he has become as pest.
    Can you not hide his ear trumpet to get him occupied with something else.

    A lot of us possibly still hope that is true, but past history isn’t an good indicator for that scenario.

    What the last couple of games (and, indeed, many before them) have shown is that we just cannot retain possession of the ball. Our passing is deplorable. Ian Cathro, when he was here, seemed to improve us on that score but we are now worse than ever.

    Our continual passing straight to the opposition is frustrating but the thing that really annoys me is our total inability to retain possession from our own throw-ins. In my opinion it would be far better to throw it towards our own goal to a player who will not be immediately put under pressure rather than try to throw it as far upfield as possible to a player who is instantly surrounded by opposition players and inevitably loses the ball.

    It happened many, many times yesterday – but we have always done this. Other teams don’t. Why does nobody question it as a tactic?

    Imo Bowen will wait for better suitors than a team looking like relegation possibilties. Footballers have 10 or 15 years tops and I imagine he would have a damn sight more ambition than to join us.

    The fake over rumours resurfaced again (surprise surprise), and too many people sit idly by whilst he runs us into the ground. Imagine if he was doing this at Liverpool celtic or rangers for 12 years, there fans would not stand by watching doing absolutely nothing. They would fight tooth and nail as one for the club they love.

    Pain in the blog I always say the same thing it’s utterly stupid throwing it into a crowd of players and hoping for the best. As you say every other team throws it to a man in space and keep the ball. Along the same lines we always pass into a congested wide area when we could have come inside to our cms and spread the play. So frustrating!

    9 he is in this formation but then again so would most strikers. He’s not playing particularly well but this formation and way of playing has sucked all confidence from the lad.

    Lejeune, who is left-footed & usually plays LCB in a 3 for first team, is playing at right centre-back in a two. He is comfortable with both feet though. Has already been on the ball a few times. You can hear him shouting instructions at his younger team-mates as well #nufc

    I just looked up managers available and Santiago Solari is sitting at home with his feet up, ex Real Madrid manager, his Preferred formation : 4-3-3 Attacking, maybe time Mike to get in a younger manager.

    We don’t have either an in form striker or a plan as to how to get goals. So we won’t develop an in form striker. And we probably won’t put out the cash in January to get another striker in. So how can this plan going forward possibly fail? Will Jarrod Bowen sign with us if we’re in the Champo next season? I suppose if his wage packet is big enough. Then what do we do with Linty Joe?

    Who would buy Newcastle at £300 odd million whilst we have a 50-50 chance of going down at this stage in the season? Doesn’t make sense.

    All you have to do is look at how Jabba treats his managers

    He dont talk to them
    He sends his goons to watch over them, even though people like Bishop arnt actually employed by the club
    He has been proven in court to lie to them
    He has some unspecified person scouting and signing players with an agenda separate from running a successful team
    He expects them to to the party line in all things
    The club has a stated policy of not competing in the league, or cups with a goal of just say surviving with the minimum spend
    He wont invest in the youth setup
    He wont spend on facilities
    He proved with Rafa he will mug anyone off
    The team in in a shambles

    Why would anyone who is any good ever bother with our club ?
    Jabba is the turd that just wont flush
