Report – Player On Loan At Newcastle To Be Made Available This Summer

Sport Witness are reporting a story today from Italy in Gazzetta Dello Sport – that Inter-Milan will be willing to sell Valentino Lazaro this summer, who is currently on loan at Newcastle.

Valentino only joined Inter last July 1st from German club Herta Berlin but found it difficult to get playing time in Italy under manager Antonio Conte, which is why he moved to Newcastle on loan in January.

The news was that Newcastle have an option clause to buy the player after the loan spell completes for £20M, and that’s the figure in the Gazzetta Dello Sports article.

Inter will sell some players to fund their own transfer business this summer, and Valentino is certain to be one of them.

Of the four players ha have had on loan this season –  Jetro Willems and Valentino were probably the best two.

But only Willems played enough games for Newcastle to give him a permanent deal – he made 20 appearances with 19 starts.

But he will be out injured until later this year.

Danny Rose and Nabil Bentaleb were not fully match-fit when they arrived and were playing their way into some form when the Premier League was suspended by the coronavirus pandemic.

It will be interesting to see if Steve Bruce takes up the £20M option on Lazaro (shown above) – since that would be a risk given he’s only made 5 appearances for us with 3 starts this season.

But some things could happen before that decision needs to be made by Newcastle.

We could still complete the Premier League season, which gives Lazaro another possible 9 league games and at least one FA Cup game to impress.

And Newcastle United could be bought by the Amanda Staveley led consortium, which includes significant funds from the Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund.

So things are all very uncertain at the moment at Newcastle and for football in general.

Comments welcome.

    God I hate this fcuking bus, it should be like brewing tea, let it brew a while it tastes better.
    Ding ding, all aboard.

    Mike, I hope the league doesn’t start, I hope you have to give back the second payment for the TV money, I hope because of this it hurts your pocket so much that selling is your only choice.

    Newcastle the first club to put there staff on furlough so our billionaire owner can use the government to pay 80%, Mikes way of saying, shut my stores will you, now I’m going to make you pay for my staff.

    Without a doubt the biggest scumbag in history, I would have a beer with Adolf before drinking a beer with you Ashley, you are pond scum at best, how no one has never whooped your ass is beyond me.

    So I wonder if next season’s season ticket prices will be at a discounted rate for those who paid for no matches this time round? What with the giveaways it’s going to be slim pickings. Reduced TV money. Almost non existent catering and merch royalties. Players being paid up to their contract in full while not playing. I doubt we will be buying any players. There’ll be a few layoffs of staff. Who’d want to buy that?

    Thanks for coming back about that malware link.

    I had ran McAfee full scan and it picked nothing up. Having seen.your message, I am now running a full Windows Defender scan, doing it again when that one’s finished.

    It looks as though the malware was picked up from a URL shortener which I’ve never used before – or the youtube link had been compromised.

    I apologie to anyone affected by this unfortunate episode and trust there’s a lesson learned for me at least.

    And as far as Jib’s unnecessary slur, it even surprised me. It shows what that potter’s really like. Vile!

    I wonder if governments around the world in a few months time look up from the piles of invoices for all the stuff they’ve been shelling out for to prop up their economies and glance straight at their rich businessmen chums lying on their yacht decks or floating on their infinity pool on their own private island, sucking on Romeo y Julietas and glugging down Cristal – and start wondering how to rifle their trouser pockets for loose change?

    Try again:-

    For a bit of a giggle, have a read of Ling Valentine (of Ling Cars, TVTE), wrote to her employees:-


    “Stay at home, watch Netflix, drink beer and avoid excessive masturbation.”

    Munster if you’d just recanted on the idea of it being a joke it probably would have gone away by now. You’re kinda living up to expectations and suspicions atm

    You posted an unnecessary comment about the malware that seems to have been embedded in a link I’d posted.

    Your post alluding to what I’ll refer to as adult content, was both unnecessary and vile.

    You have trawled the depths when you’ve commented before and your comments levelled at me today shows that not matter what good persona you try to show, your mask inevitably slips.

    Jib, you are evil and deserve to be barred from this site. That though is not a decision I can make – unfortunately.

    Thanks for that post – it shows understanding.

    I’m running Defender’s full scan as I post and will run it again for good measure. I’d like to think that McAfee did what it’s supposed to do and blocked the malware.

    Oh what a shame Tsunki, some of the dimmer bloggers might think ill of me. The flag wind up was for OP, as it clearly said, but it was jumped on by the usual anti Irish f*kcwits on here. OP then demonstrably showed us his xenophobe mentality settling comfortably into his own spew. What an intelligent man.
