Report – Failed AC Milan Move Puts Left-Back On Newcastle’s Radar


Newcastle will likely be in the market for a left-back this summer. While we have Danny Rose on loan for the rest of the season, there is no option to purchase.

They’ll also be monitoring the situation at Frankfurt with Jetro Willems. We hope Newcastle find a way to bring the Dutchman back next season after he performed so well before his season-ending knee injury against Chelsea last month.

However, with this sort of injury, there’s no telling when he will be ready to make it back to the pitch. Though a safe option could be to work out another loan arrangement for Jetro next season.

Whether that happens or not, Newcastle could still need another option on the left. One player that Newcastle are said to have been alerted to is Wigan’s Antonee Robinson.

The US U-23 international almost moved to AC Milan last month after the two clubs agreed on a £10m fee for the 22-year-old.

However, a medical was not able to be completed in time before the window closed, so the deal fell through.

Antonee Robinson– Wigan left-back interesting Premier League clubs

The Mirror are reporting that three Premier League clubs are now interested in a summer move for Robinson with Newcastle named as one of the trio. Chelsea and Aston Villa are the other two clubs cited in the report.

Robinson joined Wigan permanently this past summer for just over £2m from Everton on a three-year deal. He had been on loan to The Latics last season and spent the 2017-18 campaign on loan at Bolton.

The Everton Academy product has made a total of 85 appearances in the Championship with 1 goal and 5 assists. While he’s made two appearances for the USMNT U-23 team, he was born in Milton Keynes and has dual citizenship.

Robinson could be an option this summer if AC Milan don’t come back in for him in the summer.

His valuation is already set at around the £10m mark. However, that may go up if a bidding war ensues especially with Chelsea said to be tracking him.

    Bit random but why does the badge on our latest kits miss the colours? Its just grey/white and theres no blue, gold, etc. Anyone know the reason? If its due to Puma then I can’t wait to get the badge colours back

    Probably is to do with the kit manufacturer
    The only other reason could be FUN88
    thinking that it takes attention from their logo

    JFA It’s not footy talk it’s re: accounts that have been put together by accountants of the highest calibre. if a businessman has to pay more tax than he should his tax advisor is sacked or if he cannot find a way to hide money in the accounts sacked. Look at the Luxemburg scenario, Ok it,s been dropped no one knows if he settled.
    He might know a lot about football don’t care just think he’s a dickhead. would any of us trust Ashey just a few, and they stick out a mile.

    Doubt we’ll pay good money for an LB unless we’re sending Willems back – one purple per team place with mauve ? As backup player …presuming dummett would be the backup …got to keep the wage bill down

    Anglo,

    You are the one making the accusation.

    So you provide the facts on what you ‘see’.

    Tax fraud, ‘creaming off money’ and hiding income are serious offences especially when the sums are large, as they would be be with NUFC and SD.

    That’s what you are accusing MA of being involved in.

    Accountants aren’t paid to get involved in that.

    So where did you see the proof you are supposedly claiming?

    On this blog 🙂

    And, before you start screaming, I’m not defending Ashley, I just prefer to form my opinions on facts not BS motivated by bile filled hatred.

    Over to you.

    You think the money left from this summer’s transfer budget bout a Mulberry ?
    Or are you saying we have 20/30 million left for next season ?

    The debts not changed so it’s gone somewhere

    All we need for the rest of the season, is one goalscorer fit and able to play. We could roar up this league with the ammo we’re going to get supplied, provided AC/DG cab be on the receiving end.Surely at least one of these two crocks can make it for most of our remaining games. Look what happened last season after Rondon go fit and got some impetus from the stunningly good Miggy. Anybody else see the comparison?

    Maybe you could find a bit of info for the blog
    Where do the club claim the money went ?
    Or is there no official comment on a bit of simple maths ?

    What’s Keith told you to say ?

    It’s a game of brinkmanship between Matty Longstaff & NUFC, and on the United side it feels like they are almost challenging Longstaff’s representatives to find a better deal.

    As it’s a bit odd we did have about the amount Mulberry cost
    I’m betting that’s simply vanished from the clubs accounts
    Like it usually does

    Or do we have 20/30 million in the bank as if so why hasn’t it been paid off the debt ?
    Same goes for last year and the one before

    BSIB.
    Have you ever been in business before, accountants aren’t involved in cooking accounts are you serious. that statement tells me you have not been in business for yourself. Well let’s sort this out I have counterclaimed that you have no information that he did not have the accounts cooked and asked you to prove it, you have not. It seemed to me that you have looked at the accounts that you haven’t, The mag he promised to show them the accounts he has not. the tax office said the would like to see the accounts he is taking them to court to stop them. WHY< WHY< WHY.

    Jib if it is a game of Russian roulette with the Longstaffs who do you think will blink first,
    it’s got to be classed as a very dangerous game just letting a players contract run down if you want to keep them which i presume the club do .

    hibbit it’s not unique to us
    Chelsea and LPool used to go through the same shite every 3 years
    with Lampard and Gerard.
    I think it’s probably all being driven by their agent Beswicks Sports Ltd

    With regard to the takeover
    The silence is deafening
    After the initial leaks there’s a distinct feeling of an information clampdown
    which is positive.
