Journalist Names Potential Free Agent Bruce Would Love To Sign


The Chronicle’s Mark Douglas handled the Q&A duties today. He was asked if Newcastle had any deals lined up ready to go for the summer window. The question referenced how the Joelinton transfer was basically in place before last summer.

In his answer, Douglas cited Steve Bruce’s claim from earlier in the season that there were “two or three things in place.” He also raised the prospect of Newcastle looking at free agents, which Bruce has spoken about previously.

One potential free agent named specifically is Liverpool’s Adam Lallana, who had been brought up last month as a possible summer target. Douglas says that Bruce would love to bring in the midfielder for his experience and creativity.

However, Lallana turns 32 in May and will be in demand this summer with interest from Tottenham, Leicester City, Arsenal, as well as a possible return to Southampton being reported.

There was a report in the Express that Liverpool will not offer Lallana an extension. So we suspect that he could go to the club that offers him the most lucrative terms since it’ll be his last big payday.

We just don’t see Newcastle doing that under this current hierarchy. However, there will be a few free agents that could definitely fit the bill this summer.

Some of them are Nice goalkeeper Walter Benitez and defender Malang Sarr, Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser, and Shakhter Donetsk midfielder Viktor Kovalenko.

    Hobbit, re Genjikai and the police. He was telling me weeks ago about it. I was really shocked. It made me wonder if they monitor the blog.

    The club pays people to post here , it’s fairly obvious
    You think they would have bothered with the police just before a sale ?

    They think they can bully people, the fans whoever

    Gen maybe contact Chi with your story
    Maybe she can bring it up in parliament

    No fans forums
    No communication

    Protests met with police and threats of legal action

    Just another way he’s not fit and proper to own a club

    “The Saudi’s would provide 80% of the funds while Staveley’s PCP Capital and the Reuben Brothers would provide 10% each. The group would also pump £200m into the club to push us forward.”

    just a thought if the Saudi’s are prepared to plough loads of money in and make a loss would PCP Capital and the Reuben Brothers make a loss too?

    but it wont just be this blog,they must be harvesting information on the general feelings of fans from some were and the blogs would seem to be the obvious choice, the frog could be closer to the truth than most think,

    toon22,

    Why can’t you just accept that posters with a different view to yours aren’t paid shills acting for Ashley?

    How the hell would they get paid?

    By the hour, by the post, by the number of posters they change to being pro-Ashley (haha) ??

    It’s all absolute nonsense.

    Hibbitt,

    Those 2 dogs are so cute. Sadly barely 5 months after having to put down the 1st of our Jack Russells we recently had to put down the second surviving one. Devastating and we are at the stage of wondering whether to get another dog.
