Newcastle Maintain Interest In Prolific Striker With Low Release Clause

Newcastle were first linked with Genk striker Mbwana Samatta this past July. BBC reporter Ian Dennis has tweeted that Newcastle still maintain an interest in the prolific forward.

The 26-year-old Tanzanian forward scored an amazing 32 goals in 51 appearances for Genk last season. This season he already has bagged 8 goals including 2 in the Champions League.

With his release clause being just £10m, Samatta is well within Newcastle’s price range for a January move. He will, however, turn 27 next month so is pushing the the boundary of Newcastle’s age policy for transfers.

Samatta joined Genk in 2016 for fee of around £600k from DR Congo club Mazembe. He has been capped 51 times for Tanzania with 18 international goals.

It’s a big step up from the Belgian Jupiler Pro League to the Premier League. However, with his release clause being well below his potential value, he might be a shrewd target for January.

    an alt hunter is somebody on here that spends most their time trying to insinuate one blogger is another. they usually go for the most despised member and try to link them to anyone who crosses them. i get that there have been a few and that jib has more than likely had a name change.

    here is the stupidest one ive been seeing a lot recently. people saying other posters are tonybaloney. if tony changed his name you’d spot him in a few seconds. tony cannot go 5 seconds without erupting and fighting everybody in his path so to believe any other poster is him (unless they are constantly raging) is ludicrous. can they be serious? or just childishly looking for trouble?

    The next Mike Williamson @43 – I fully agree – just because 2 or more posters hold a view that is not completely anti-Ashley it does not mean they are alts. In fact it’s quite ludicrous when you think of the hundreds who post on this blog the law of averages tells you there will be 2 or more with the same opinion. I’m not saying there aren’t because there obviously are – IanToon and his gang of single name posters to name but a few.
