Report – Another Premier League Club Watches NUFC Target


Newcastle were reported to have watched Real Valladolid center-back Mohammed Salisu earlier this season. The 20-year-old Ghanaian has been a revelation in La Liga since breaking into the Valladolid first team this season.

Salisu has started all 13 matches in his first full season with the Spanish club’s first team. This past May, he extended his contract to 2022 after making his senior debut last season in the Copa del Rey.

It was thought that Sevilla was in the lead to land the youngster. However, their director of football Monchi recently refuted any suggestion that they were tracking the player. Monchi denied the claim in the lead up to Sevilla’s trip to face Valladolid this afternoon.


The original report said that Everton and Schalke have also been scouting the 6’3″ defender along with Newcastle. Now according to The Pink Un, citing reports from Spain, Norwich City have also sent scouts to watch the exciting prospect.

Salisu has a €12m buyout clause in his contract, and it is highly unlikely any club will be able to get him for less than that fee. However, he looks an outstanding prospect and could be a player Newcastle are tracking to add some youth in central defense.

If Federico Fernandez, whose contract runs out in the summer, is not given an extension, Salisu could be seen as a replacement. There is also Ciaran Clark, whose deal only runs until 2021. With both Newcastle defenders over the age of 30, bringing in Salisu, who turns 21 in April, could be a sensible move this summer.

    JAF, his hair was messed up, he had to straighten that out first and by the time he done that, he was embraced by team mates.

    If hope we go after Bowen this Jan, maybe Hull needs a defender or a central midfielder. We could offer one with cash deal to get him.

    Peter Kenyon trying to broker a deal for Charlton?
    He gets around does Kenyon. The Sun are reporting he is trying to broker a takeover deal for Charlton Athletic.

    The report reads:

    CHARLTON owner Roland Duchatelet wants £60million for the Championship club.

    The Belgian has hiked up the price in recent months and would sell if the valuation is met.

    Two groups have tried recently, with one American consortium keen to do the deal and take over soon.

    Addicks negotiators may even go across the Atlantic for a meeting in the next few weeks as the possible takeover creeps closer.

    Duchatelet’s right-hand man in Belgium, Joseph Lieberman, is due to go Stateside for a summit that may bring his unpopular reign to an end…

    And Crystal Palace near to being sold to a foreign consortium for £130m or thereabouts.

    So where does Ashley get a number of £350m plus for NUFC? Take out the £140m.the club owes him (Owes him?) and we’re left with £210m – but the tw@t sold off the Strawberry land. He’ll still be wanting his SD advertising thrown in…. so I think we could understand if Kenyon were to be looking elsewhere.

    And, having got rid of 8000 troublemaking supporters who’ve not renewed their STs or not attending matches, Ashley probably feels he’s won that battle.

    No protests, no dissent at SJP and indirect vocal endorsement of Ashley from those fans who go to support their team.

    Game set and match to Ashley.

    Investinyouthtoon “(some say) having decent coaches would be better than facilities”

    I think that’s probably right. Good facilities are a tool which coaches use to make their skills more effective, but the coaching has to be good whatever otherwise what’s the point?

    Ideally, as one of the richest clubs in the world, we’d have both. This is where Ashley fails us, when he neglects to allow us to be as good as we can be.

    There are so many better investments than nufc thanks to Ashley. We can only guess what he is even offering for sale at that price as well. However if he is only offering bits and pieces then it would seem logical that people are looking elsewhere even at championship clubs. Hopefully something is going on behind closed doors, or the only alternative is to look forward to more years of austerity under Ashley.

    Lesh I don’t think it’s that simple. The less vocal are over the long term less enthused and if there’s nothing to see here after another cupless season in the lower half, the lack of thrills will see the apathetic throngs lose their appetite for spending £40+ to witness a thrashing at the hands of the top half clubs – much less Monday night rainswept goalless slogs against our new sump-sharing peers. I think if it’s a victory it’s a short term one. In the end we are supposed to be a top football club with designs in greater things and a true representation of the region’s ambition. Twelve years is a long time for us but in the scheme of modern finances and the game may yet be an era some look back on as a horrible blip. I still hold out for Ashley suddenly finding the profits aren’t that great any more and then hopefully we will get an owner who sees competition equalling success.

    If you read Jane’s link the price seems a bit on the low side.

    The problem is not that nobody wants to buy us. It’s Ashley’s valuation of the club. I think it’s more than we are being led to believe. And I believe the terms are even more onerous. Ashley just scares serious buyers away because buying him out means trumping what profit he makes, and I bet it’s a decent amount.

    Thanks Rob, thats the point I was trying to make that one is rather pointless without the other, and as you say as one of the richest clubs in Europe then we should be aiming higher than paddling pools and wheelie bins.

    Geordietom – haven’t you heard? Buyers have changed strategy. We are now being slowly infiltrated by a tide of Steves. Once everyone in charge of the club’s key positions is a Steve, they will make their mover for domination of the club.

    I can’t see what point you’re trying to make. I’d mistakenly posted what’s clearly a wrong value. Even so according to The Sun, the supposed Palace buyers value the club at £185m and will clear £30m of debt, making £215m tops.

    Back to it, Ashley wants £350m plus, including £140m debt he’s owed. So he values NUFC at £210m but he’s sold off land, has merchandising routed through SD, SD advertising at £2m a year for saturation coverage, owns the club’s badge/ logo and I’m sure there’s more.

    So, stripping that lot out of the club, he still values NUFC at £210m?

    What point were you trying to.make.
