‘Won’t Be Leaving In January’ – Owner Reportedly Makes Bold Claim About Newcastle’s Top Target


Jarrod Bowen scored two more goals last night in Hull City’s 4-0 win against Preston, who were missing another Newcastle target, defender Ben Davies, through injury.

The brace took Bowen’s season tally to 14 goals in all competitions for the Championship club.

Newcastle reportedly balked at Hull’s £20m asking price this summer. The thinking is that with Bowen running down his contract and not yet signing an improved offer, that he could be prised away in January for a smaller fee.

However, there is some distressing news for Newcastle fans from ITV’s Chris Dawkes, who has tweeted the following information.

If these reports are true, it’s a double setback for Newcastle’s pursuit of the 22-year-old goal machine. Not only is he valued at more than £20m, but he is not going to be allowed to leave this winter.

Hull’s owner Assem Allam may consider that keeping Bowen until the summer and pushing for a promotion place is worth the risk of Bowen not signing his new deal. Hull are up to ninth place with their win last night and just four points behind Swansea in the final playoff place.

With Bowen racking up the goals with 9 in his last 7 matches, he may be playing himself out of a move to Newcastle.

    Just the owner trying to get more money, can’t blame him really, easy to say he ain’t leaving, then suddenly he couldn’t refuse such a big offer.

    Just on the previous article. It infuriates me so much that Choudhury hasn’t faced any punishment for that “challenge” and has since gone on to do the exact same thing to Salah as well. Ritchie misses a significant amount of what could well be his last season at this level of football.

    I hate to say it but I’d be surprised if we don’t start seeing players try to take legal action against other players, teams, refs or the league if players don’t get appropriate sanctions for assaults on the pitch like that. Particularly when you start to take into account loss of earnings from appearance fees and the like, which are only ever increasing.

    There is not a snowballs chance in Hell we’ll pay anything for him in January, Churnley will have been tapping him up all season trying to get him to run his contract down. “They’ll only be upset for a while, you’ll have new fans to sing your name, think of the extra money, here look at these drawings for the new training complex, I’ll even introduce you to the architect and you can design your own gym and pool”

    Ashley sells the Strawberry land and remames Sports Direct as Fraser Group
    Leicester state their aim to join the top elite clubs.

    Spot the difference.
    Sorry no prizes

    JohnReese@2 – if it ever got to that stage then the game would cease to exist as we know it as it would become a totally non-contact for fear of being sued and end up being very sterile. Worst case I think is players would have to sign a disclaimer that they might get injured.
    Also while the Choudhury tackle was a bad one it was no worse than you see frequently in games where it just causes a knock that the player soon runs off – Ritchie was just unlucky that it caught him where it did to cause so much damage.

    Rotunda I’m joking. But at the same time I’m not gonna let you or anyone dictate what I can and can’t say.

    I dont want you or most people on here to be offended by anything. I try not to get offended when people get offended by me making a joke with the word retarded in it, maybe you should do the same and we wont have to fight.

    Jail…If he doesnt sign a contract then he will most definitely leave in January. Their entire club is worth 50M they cant risk loosing 20M odd for him come summer time. And the definitely will loose him in the summer. A lunatic wouldnt even say no to a free Bowen.

    Which means if Ashley does want him he is gonna have to pay 15-20M in January.

    The difference between Leicester City and us is very depressing!
    Ashley selling off the “silverware” and Leicester expanding and growing as a club!
    The worst part is that of all Premier league underachieving clubs, Newcastle has the greatest potential as has been shown in the past, but we are stuck with this disgrace of an owner, second rate ceo and a journeyman manager whose won nowt!
    Other than that it’s all good!
