Geordie Fans Flock To Twitter – Delighted With New Signing

Newcastle fans have flooded to Twitter following the announcement by the club that we have secured a loan deal for 25-year-old Schalke 04 box-to-box midfielder Nabil Bentaleb.

There is also an option to buy for just €10M in the summer – so that seems like a great deal for us for such a talented player.

Fans seem very pleased with the deal.

There’s also breaking news that Steve Bruce wants Tottenham and England left-back  Danny Rose on loan.

    We don’t use strikers anyway, don’t need them. ?

    Tea sprayed all over the place and out my nose when I snorted reading that you swine.

    Bentlab….have to admit I know sweet football association about him but he looks a unit

    Posted this like four articles back. Hadn’t realized the bus had moved.

    “Don’t know what he’s like now, but when he was at Spurs, he was one if the bright shining lights for the future.”

    A Spurs friend just sent me this. The future is now 🙂

    Now, for another ASM on the right and we’ll be ok for the rest of the season.

    We’ll eventually need to do something about that 20-30s possession… Unless we already have.

    I have to be honest I just can’t remember him playing for Spurs but most you guys seem to think he’s decent so that’s good enough for me 😉 Question – is he more suitable to play alongside Shelvey or Hayden?

    Liam Gibson has just come back from Grimsby where he’s been out on loan, he’s played 22 matches for them and had a couple of assists. If he doesn’t get a chance to at least get in the squad, when Bruce has been calling all of his mates into the first team squad, he’d be pretty sick of his life, you’d think.

    It wouldn’t be the first time he’s been in the Senior squad, he played against Lillestrom in a pre-season game when he was 18 or so, he’s since been ill with colitis and has maybe missed out a bit by dropping off the radar but still has quality.

    Wouldn’t surprise me at all to have him added to the squad. After all, what else is a reserve / junior side for?

    If I recall, he doesn’t need anyone alongside him. He’s a beast 🙂

    I think Hayden has locked the RB position. Though I like Yedlin.

    He’s a serious unit, didn’t appreciate that till I saw the stats. Playing against tall athletes in midfield is always difficult and this guy looks like he can play as well as defend. Super work by nickson and Bruce and charnley.

    Even I might find cause for optimism if we bring Danny Rose and some kind of forward in.

    Do you’se want the good news or the bad news.
    Ok, ok the good news first. In three years of being on this Blackpool job this is the first time I’ve been stuck on shore due to fog so I’m on full pay and will get to watch the match with a few pints tonight. The bad news is you’ve got me on here for the rest of the day 😛

    If I knew we was getting all transfer money back to spend I would get this guy for 10 Million and sell Sean Longstaff for 30 million if somebody is daft enough to pay that much and use the 20 million towards a quality striker 😀

    Bentaleb is supposed to be a no nonsense player However he seems to have a problem at times with being told what to do by managers or coaches. Another HBA ? Don’t really care as long as he performs and brings positives to the team.
    Welcome to Geordie land young man !

    Doubt we will see much of Bentaleb until maybe 1st week of Feb. He has,nt played high level football since last April so will need to get up to speed.
