Uruguay International Running Down Contract Could Be Worth A January Bid

PSV’s Gaston Pereiro is not enjoying what is likely his final season with the Eredivisie club. The 24-year-old has seen his game time limited partly due to a broken collarbone but also because he has refused to extend his contract, which expires in the summer.

With Pereiro’s contract running down, he could be a decent option for Newcastle to make a move for in the January window. He would likely cost less than £10m.

Pereiro was reportedly offered to AC Milan this summer for £13m; however, the Serie A club opted against signing the Uruguayan international.

PSV would like to offload the playmaker before losing him on a free in the summer. Pereiro has played just 3 times this season, but before his contract situation, he was a star player for the Dutch club.

Gaston Pereiro– running contract down at PSV

The 6’2″ attacker joined PSV from Uruguayan club Nacional for just over £6.5m in the summer of 2015. Since then, he has made 116 appearances with 43 goals and 17 assists. He generally plays as an attacking midfielder but can also operate on either wing.

He has 10 caps for Uruguay with 4 goals. He was recently called up for Uruguay’s friendly against Argentina this past week but was an unused substitute.

With Newcastle lacking creative options in central midfield, Pereiro could be a cheap option as a playmaker who can also get forward and score some goals. It’s the type of player this squad does not really possess at the moment.

    There’s a good Jetro Willems skills video been released.


    Such a powerful yet skilful player, surely only a matter of time before he is back in the International picture.

    To me it is a stretch to compare the goal drought of our front three with a poor spell of a legendary footballer. Career stats of our front three doesn’t indicate that they would be better than being able to pitch in with an occasional goal here and there. Getting a sputtering engine running takes a reasonable mechanic. That’s like Brendan Rodgers’ tweaking of Vardy’s position play. Wings could be switched between Saint Maximin and Almiron (there’s no aerial cross for the man in the middle because their right and left footedness narrowing down the game) and Joelinton could spend more time looking to pounce rather than trying to build up the game from behind.

    Was I thinking of GH? Who GH?

    You’ll know of the Wrecking Crew so I can only assume you’re referencing Stanley Accrington and the Third Division North. That little folk ensemble was formed by Brian Pandrich, Johnny ‘Handle’s’ brother many moons ago.

    Another type maybe GH for JH? Time to sack your spell check!

    Anyway, I’s off so take care all.

    I also think there’s too much of fancy ball play upfront rather than going fast and direct. Moving diagonally across the width of the pitch and trying to dribble through the middle – obvious outcomes of narrowing down the pitch moving forward – may impress the gallery but dry up the score sheet.

    Max swung the ball in for Yedlin to head home in the Bournemouth game for at least one, did he not dink one onto one of the other defenders heads prior to that too?

    Newcastle United have a manager called Steve, an assistant manager called Steve, a first-team coach called Steve, a head scout called Steve and now a goalkeeping coach called Steve.

    Stevecastle United.

    Joelinton had an assist in London as well as a goal
    In the West Ham game it was his header across the box
    that Ciaran Clark then headed into the net for our first

    You’re going to have to hope Willems gets a hatrick, three assists and a clean sheet on Monday night 😀

    Jib @10: getting center halves all the way up could leave the hind side exposed against opponents with fast wing play. AVFC had a strategy of that sort in the Championship. Should they relapse back to that habit, it needs to be exploited. As for Joelinton; his production level needs to improve from lab trial to the industrial level to justify his job statement and the pricetag. Arguments have been made that a player may need months to settle down in the EPL. However, when the house is on fire one needs a Cisse, not a Thauvin.

    Pitch is flat as a fart man. Rubbish test cricket in this type of pitch. We should be able to bat it out ok tomorra unless it suddenly starts to spin on day 5.

    I haven’t been watching it because of the time and haven’t got the same interest as the Ashes but the last time I looked we were in control apparently.

    “West Ham fear they are being dragged into a relegation battle and they are prepared to act if there is no sign of Pellegrini improving the situation. Tentative overtures have been made to Rafael Benítez, who joined the Chinese side Dalian Yifang last summer, but Chris Hughton is emerging as a more realistic candidate. Hughton, who has been out of work since being fired by Brighton at the end of last season, would be interested in taking over if the job becomes available.” (The Observer)

    You bring out the cynic in people. By highlighting that Joelinton had “an assist” you emphasise what a disaster of a signing he has been!
    Perhaps if you would show just a hint of criticism at our ruinous owner, some of us would not be so cynical.
    The club I love with a passion is on a downward spiral at a time when there is barrow loads of money in the game and Ashley is the reason, but to you he is beyond reproach.
    There’s nothing wrong with me but you need to give your head a shake!

    As bad as some signings have been, Willems is excellent isn’t he?
    Hopefully there is something in his contract that we have an option to buy him at the end of his loan!
