Russian Striker Newcastle Looked At This Summer Could Be Available In January

On transfer deadline day, Craig Hope tweeted the following bit of information about Newcastle’s interest in CSKA Moscow striker Fedor Chalov.

Crystal Palace tried to get the 21-year-old in on deadline day but failed with their final bid of £23m.

Christian Emile, Chalov’s agent, had this to say about his client in August after the failed Crystal Palace bid:

“Fedor is one of the most striking players in Europe, and the increased interest in him is completely justified.

“Especially from the side of one Premier League club, which made a significant offer, but CSKA refused to sell the player.

“The position of CSKA is completely understandable – they have serious goals, and Fedor is the most important player for them.

“We will follow the development of events and are sure that in any case has a great future.”

Sky Sports have a report out that Chelsea are now interested in bringing the Russian in this winter if their transfer ban gets lifted.

However, the exciting part of the report is that CSKA Moscow may have lightened up on their high valuation of Chalov.

According to Sky Sports, CSKA Moscow are preparing for Chalov’s exit this winter. Crystal Palace’s bid of £23m was rejected this summer, but maybe a similar fee could prise the highly-rated youngster away in January.

Newcastle could possibly raise some funds by selling both Dwight Gayle and Yoshinori Muto to help fund a move for the talented forward.

    The only question MA asks is how much can I sell him for in a few years.

    So, Newcastle could possibly raise some funds by selling both Dwight Gayle and Yoshinori Muto to help fund a move for the talented forward?

    Raise some funds? Why should the club need to raise some funds by selling? Does that imply the club’s gpt no money to funds a £20m transfer?

    Selling players who aren’t doing a job for us is good housekeeping but is the club that skint that it’s got to rely on the proceeds of sales to fund buys?

    Still. we have the unanswered question – where’s the income we’ve had over the years gone?

    Perhaps Ashley might agree to NUST’s offer to fund an independent audit of the club’s books as he said he’d agree to?

    The fact that we’ve not heard of him agreeing to that offer exposes yet another lie – why hasn’t the media made more of it?

    How much longer is Ashley going to be allowed to get away with his cynical abuse of Newcastle United?

    How long are the club’s loyal fans going to continue paying for tickets to subsidise Sports Direct? When will they say ‘enough’ and refuse to renew their STs? Only when they realise that they’re at the receiving end of Ashley’s two-fingered salute.

    Lesh @3 – The club finances & ST holders have been discussed ‘ad infinitum’ on here so I don’t want to get into that again. However if we are going to bring in new players in January then we need to free up squad places to accommodate them so surely it makes sense to sell some players in order to do so rather than keep them on the wage bill with no squad position?

    He hasn’t brandished a red card in PL or across Europe this entire season! (Ok he’s reffed 1 game in Europe so far..)
    The last time he reffed us we beat Leicester at their joint!

    I’m in the market for straws by the way,if anyone’s got any spare
