Could This Magpie Be The First Out The Door This Month?



Newcastle are seemingly getting closer to another signing this summer in Tottenham’s Danny Rose. The Daily Mail’s Craig Hope issued the following promising tweet earlier today.

However, if Danny Rose does join in the next few days, someone from the first-team will have to be offloaded. There has been precious little movement on that front reported in the press.

The most likely player to leave would be midfielder Ki Sung-yueng, but we’ve heard nothing recently of any clubs showing interest in the 31-year-old. But Ki has barely featured this season and desperate for a move for first-team football.

Another name has come up that Newcastle could very well be open to letting leave this month. That is Christian Atsu, who has been very inconsistent of late after having a decent start to the season.


Football Insider are reporting that Championship leaders West Brom have identified the Ghanaian as a top target this month and hope to be able to strike a deal to get him in.

Atsu is one of several Magpies whose contracts run out in 2021. However, unlike Jonjo Shelvey, Matt Ritchie, or Fabian Schar, Christian stands little chance of getting an extension at Newcastle.

While Christian has made 22 appearances in all competitions, he’s only started 6 games in the Premier League. The bulk of those were earlier this season when Allan Saint-Maximin went down with his first hamstring injury.

With Valentino Lazaro joining on loan from Inter on Friday, opportunities are going to be even slimmer for the 28-year-old. So moving Christian on this month might be an option Newcastle will consider if an offer comes in.

    Yeah Rob, take either but let’s be greedy and hope for both

    As for Atsu, always liked him but gone downhill lately and we need room in the squad so maybe makes sense with the new guy in and of course Bowen

    You think theyll wait till the week after the transfer window or March the 1st to decide the current fakeover was a load of tosh again ?

    I’d be offering a choice of some, or all, for free from Coldback, Atishu, Saveit etc as part of a Bowen swap, heck they should have offered Bambi + £5 for Paco.

    Who owns Sky Sports ?

    Rupert Murdoch owns BSkyB who own Sky Sports.

    Who owns The Wall Street Journal ?

    The Wall Street Journal is owned by media magnate Rupert Murdoch

    Who is Jabbas preferred media outlet ?

    Who do you think he will pretend to sell us to next time ?

    Nufc Twitter really have it in for atsu! I get people want an improvement in his area but the stick is harsh and unwarranted imo. Only a few months ago people on Twitter were praising him!

    The Wall Street Journal is owned by NewsCorp which is owned
    by the Murdochs
    however
    Murdoch has been warned off many times for interference and
    doesn’t get involved
    The WSJ has won nearly 50 Pulitzer prizes to suggest it can be
    influenced is nonsense

    Lets just go on being strung along by Jabba and his cheap as chips PR for another year

    What we need now is some staged sky interview where he says some rubbish about how hes going to change
    Or maybe come out with another 5 year plan
    Same rubbish as usual for the same reasons as usual

    You would think he owned loads of sporting media or something

    Despite reports that Paco Alcacer had reportedly agreed to join Valencia. Dortmund are still listening to offers from other clubs. Villarreal currently stepping up their interest but NUFC also keeping an eye on the striker anything could happen come friday

    So, MA who is widely disliked even in business circles has somehow managed to convince one of the most powerful media outlets in the world to fabricate a takeover so convincing that every other media outlet is also taken in?

    Wow if he’s that powerful maybe the Saudis better offer £500m in case he gets cross.

    Peter Graves is on a jolly. He’s a day too soon for deadline day so maybe he’s taking in the sights tomorrow.
    Certainly not here for takeover news – how on earth would he know after 10 years of no decision.
