Report Names Left-Back And Striker Bruce Is Targetting



It’s all gone a bit quiet on the transfer front with just two days remaining in the window. With the takeover saga claiming all the headlines, the fact that Newcastle really could do with some more additions this month should not be put on the back burner.

The Northern Echo have a report that Bruce is still working to bring in some new faces before Friday’s deadline.

The player that has become his top target is Tottenham left-back Danny Rose, according to this report. It also claims that the former-Sunderland defender is now open to a move back to the North East with Newcastle. Rose spent the 2012-13 season on loan with Sunderland.


With the season-ending injuries to Paul Dummett and Jetro Willems, Bruce has turned his attentions to prioritizing the addition of a left-back rather than a striker.

However, Bruce still wants to bring in another striker according to this report. It asserts that Bruce is closely monitoring Olivier Giroud’s situation with Chelsea.

Newcastle had made an inquiry to Chelsea for Giroud earlier this month but were immediately rebuffed.

The 34-year-old has his sights on a move to Inter Milan, but that seems off the cards at the moment. Though Tottenham are said to considering making a move for the Frenchman.

The Northern Echo states that Giroud would like to get at least an 18-month contract if he leaves Chelsea this month. That would seemingly rule out a move to Newcastle.


However, if nothing else materializes, then maybe Newcastle can get the striker on loan this month. Giroud will want to get minutes on the pitch for the remainder of this season to ensure a place with France for this summer’s European Championships.

Newcastle have done well in getting both Nabil Bentaleb and Valentino Lazaro on loan this month. It looks like any other business is heading right down to the wire.

    The conversation in some google translated language between EGB and Jib earlier reminded me of a couple of Beavis and Butthead types who were in one of my classes at school. When they weren’t sniggering at each other talking backwards they were drawing senip’s on their desks.

    Glad you appreciated it.

    Samrat Beavis and I enjoyed it if no one else did. 🙂 🙂 🙂

    There is one sure way for the Premier League can prevent piracy of its product in Saudi Arabia. Get the crown prince to own one of the members of the league.
    He probably owns the tv company too. I’m fairly confident an agreement would be made very quickly. More coin in the Premier League piggy bank.

    I do worry all this takeover talk is going to derail our season we could easily lose to Norwich, Oxford and Arsenal in the space of a few weeks which would set the tone for the 2nd half of the season

    Yes, according to reports, Saudi Arabia’s alleged bid for Newcastle United could meet opposition from the Premier League over its involvement in alleged state-sponsored piracy. My mind’s eye immediately spools forward to the moment a week or so hence, where a regretful-looking Sky Sports reporter will stand outside St James’ Park and say: “Whilst the Premier League was OK with the beheadings and the dismemberment, Jim, this dodgy feed stuff has ultimately proved the deal breaker.” (Marina Hyde)

    At this rate if we don’t get a striker in I would be sticking Gayle up front if fit, we need a Striker with a poachers instinct and Gayle is by far the best in those terms we have

    If that’s true – it’s food for thought
    Rafa bought him from St Etienne for Napoli
    He was one of the first names on Rafa’s team-sheet
    It makes you wonder if Steve Nickson still talks to Rafa

    A friend of mine was travelling round the world a few years back, and was sitting in a Cafe in Indonesia watching a football match, and one of the locals advised him that if it was a ‘chipped’ satellite card they were watching you can get the death sentence there just for watching it! Can’t see Sky really worrying about the morality of the Saudi human rights issues too much.

    Gayle needs to get away from his favourite position which is the treatment table, amazing how he’s fit for championship teams when on loan but at parent club his poor old hammys start to have issues.

    Gayle isnt the answer and never has been, poacher in championship yes but not a PL player

    Thanks for the good wishes re: son

    If and it’s a big IF we get bought out by the Saudis I’m not sure we nufc fans should be held morally responsible for crimes against humanity – Saudi have already sport washed boxing, wrestling, golf, rallying, formula 1 and even held the Spanish super cup – yeah, morally there’s definitely issues but as somebody else eloquently put it – fck it , I want to see us win something before I peg it

    The references to Beavis and Butthead reminded me of my Uber driver this morning.

    Communication was difficult, separated by a common language. Thats modern life I suppose

    Surprisingly he was playing the Eagles on the
    Prius radio. He got to spot in ‘Hotel California’,
    … “you can check-out anytime,
    but you can never leave”
    This what Ashley sings in his morning shower I’ll bet.

    ‘Hotel California’, more like ‘Hotel Cauliflower’

    Danny Rose would be fantastic for us! He’s brilliant and will play wing back so can’t wait to see him bomb forward, and cross the ball into an empty box!
    Get a freakin striker!!!!!!
