Bruce Wants Two Of The Loan Players Signed This Summer – And A Mini Clear-Out


The Chronicle are reporting today that Newcastle manager Steve Bruce will sign central midfielder Nabil Bentaleb this summer; he’s been on loan at the club since January.

Bruce has said often that Bentaleb was playing well in training, but he was never match-fit and never showed what he can do in the first-team games.

But Bruce is an admirer of the former Tottenham and current Schalke 04 midfielder.

It seems that Schalke 04 and Newcastle have agreed a price of £8.5M for the midfielder this summer, and that looks like a good deal for the Magpies.

But we wonder what message that sends to young Marry Longstaff, who is yet to sign a new deal for Newcastle and could leave the club this summer for just £400K.

Is this another tragic error being made by Newcastle?

Nabil Bentaleb – Bruce wants to sign him this summer

Isaac Hayden has also become unsettled at Newcastle, and in the summer the former Arsenal player will have just one year left on his current contract, and he may even want to leave again.

Another favorite of the Newcastle manager is England International left-back Danny Rose – and he is another one of the loan players that Bruce wants to sign this summer.

Currently, there is no fee agreed between Tottenham and Newcastle for Rose, and that could be a sticking point with Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy, usually (always) wanting big money for his players.

Rose is also said to be on at least £60K/week and that may be a problem for Mike Ashley.

Both Rose and Bentaleb are very keen to join Newcastle permanently to reignite their careers.

There will also be a clearout of players who have no future at the club – players like Rolando Aarons, Achraf Lazaar, Henri Saivet, and Christian Atsu will be put up for sale.

And the contracts of Jamie Sterry, Jack Colback, and Rob Elliot end this summer, and all will become free agents and off the wage bill of Newcastle.

These incoming and even outgoing transfers could all change if there is a change of ownership this summer – which is still a possibility.

And there will likely be a change of manager if we get new owners at the club,

    “The Tories have a very comfortable majority so it’ll be business as usual once this is finally over.”

    they wanted a lockdown so they can have one which will make us popular.

    On CV conspiracy theories…

    You can bet your bottom dollar there will be a ton of books pushing the CT’s with sole intention of making money at the expense of any truth or common sense.- and millions around the world will believe the crap.

    This is exactly how the fake moon landing nonsense started – with a book in 1975 – now 1 in 6 people even in America believe they were faked even though there is a ton of proof to rubbish the theories and prove the landings.

    Humans are at the same time the most intelligent and the most stupid life form on the planet.

    They can on the one hand do the extraordinary and land men on the moon and safely bring them back – and on the other hand invent and believe rubbish that it never happened.

    Flat earth believers, Prince Phillip ordered Di’s death and 5G is responsible for Coronavirus etc., etc., just show what humans are capable of believing when you give them freedom of speech and thought – and SM has given every Tom, Dick And Harriet in the world the opportunity to voice their opinion and conspiracy theories.

    The idiots who are ignoring Govt advice on the lockdown are the same people who call others idiots for bad driving, pushing into queues and all of the other everyday situations that make them say “fkg idiot”.

    And guess what – do they believe THEY are idiots?

    Not a chance.

    That’s humans for you.

    Passing on Bentaleb and Rose, but signing Lazaro: that would be a statement of intent.

    The club should be thinking bigger than shopping in the elephants’ graveyard.

    Well in a ideal world we will have new owners and unfortunately Mr Bruce I would I assume and hope a new manager… Nothing personal but we need a better manager and probably one with more appeal for better players to join. All hypothetical ofcourse.

    IMO Bentaleb will turn out to be a very good signing.

    He has class and when we get round to a proper pre-season for him we’ll see the real player.

    I haven’t seen anything from Bentaleb that was any improvement on Colback. A niggly player that drifts in and out of games. If Shelvey (this season) played like Bentaleb had–minus the Pirlo style passes–he’d have been crucified.

    Well, I’m in the Hospital ?

    This has not been a good morning. After spending the last two weeks quarantined inside the house, I decided to go horseback riding, something I haven’t done in many months. It turned out to be a horrible big mistake!

    I got on the horse and started out slowly, but then we went a little faster; before I knew it, we were going as fast as the horse could go. I couldn’t take the pace and fell off and caught my foot in the saddle stirrup, the horse was then dragging me. The horse just would not stop.

    Thankfully the manager at Asda came out and unplugged the machine. He actually had the nerve to take the rest of my coins so I wouldn’t try to ride the Elephant…

    Morning all So there is no new rumours on the takeover, for me that is good news, keeps everything under wraps, the way it should be. I guess it will be frustrating for some but im more than happy with no info being leaked incase it may scupper a deal.

    Its a Carry On film fest today so ile be happy with some light hearted titillation for a few hours.
    Has anyone got a favourite, VOTE ? Cant make my mind up between Carry On Abroad or Screaming

    I’d happily see us sign all three of Bentaleb, Lazaro and Rose or Willems. Our progress since promotion has been about 25% too slow I’d say, and obviously we should never have lost Rafa, unforgivable that, but despite this, you have to say that the squad is nowadays at least, year on year, getting stronger, and that certainly has not always been the case under Mike Ashley.

    Shelvey is crap, Bentaleb you can see will be a good player if he gets fit an applies himself. For 5-8M hes definitely worth a punt, he has show glimpses of his talent.

    Although I dont see us holding on to players of the talent of Shelvey and Bentaleb etc.. if we are taken over. I think you can say goodbye to 2/3 of our defence as well.
