Report – Newcastle Interested In Promising Ghanaian Youngster


Newcastle have been linked with a fair few promising youngsters of late. PSG defender Tanguy Kouassi and Penarol attacker Facundo Pellistri are two of the future stars Newcastle are reportedly making late pushes for.

Both teenagers are being tracked by some top clubs, and either would be an outstanding addition this summer.

Another in-demand youngster that Newcastle have been linked with is FC Nordsjaelland midfielder Mohammed Kudus.

Like Pellistri, Kudus has just one year remaining on his contract, and he’s not likely to resign with the Danish club.

According to France Football, Newcastle and Everton are interested in the 19-year-old.


Kudus (pictured above) has already made two appearances for the full Ghana team and even scored on his debut in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier this past November.

He joined Nordsjaelland from Ghana’s Right To Dream Academy two summers ago. This season has seen Kudus’s stock rise with his performances in Denmark.

He’s scored 9 goals in his 19 appearances in the Superligaen splitting his time between the midfield and striker. Olympique Marseille, Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig, RB Salzburg, and Fenerbahce are all said to be after Kudus.

However, his agent, Jennifer Mendelewitsch, wants the youngster to land where he will be able to get time on the pitch. Though she says he will definitely be leaving this summer.

Ghana Web has published the following comments from Kudus’s agent:

“Many European clubs are in discussions at the moment, but we are not in contact with OM. There are very large teams and intermediate clubs, and Mohammed’s choice will be to join a team where he will have playing time, but he will be spoiled for choice.

“What is certain is that he will leave Denmark this summer. Obviously, clubs like Salzburg and Leipzig can be on the spot, but also English, Spanish, and Italians. We also have Ligue 1 clubs, but not those that have been mentioned recently.”

With just one year remaining on his contract, Kudus won’t cost too much to bring in. He seems to have a promising future, but there’s little chance he’ll get into Newcastle’s first team next season.

However, he could be a decent signing for the Academy if he’s willing to be patient. If we are genuinely interested, we’re sure Christian Atsu will tell him all about Newcastle.

    @IrishRob: Shearer was just a beast. He wanted to score goals and be involved. His entire game revolved around exploiting space with sudden bursts of speed, and when he couldn’t he’d just stand up his man and use his strength to bully them (seen a lot more in his later years).

    With Dalglish and Gullit he just lost his fuel for a little and turned his back to goal. One of the most incredible things is watching that 8-0 and seeing just how quick Sir Bobby coached him back to the player he was, while changing his game to match his age.

    Thinking back to those times, it’s hard to describe to other fans (or even some of the younger ones these days) what it was like to have a highly competent team, led by a Geordie, managed by a Geordie, and owned by Geordies. If ever you want to see how to ignite an already fanatical fanbase, that’s a bloody good way!

    CNN have just reported that the Navajo region have the highest Covid death rate per capita in the whole of the United States.
    To make matters worse they are having to cope with all this without running water.
    My thoughts go out to Running Water’s friends and family at this difficult time.

    Well at least the warmer weather might cheer some folk up . The fine people of Sunlun wont have to make those tough choices of whether or not to heat the house, feed the kids or have a massive new tattoos done.

    I had a couple of black and white paisley shirts in the early 90s, normally worn open with a Cure or Sisters of Mercy t-shirt underneath.

    I actually quite like the Man City shirt design.

    Irishrob- and how good was Shearer at holding the ball, the best I’ve seen. Damn I miss seeing that class in a toon top.

    Can’t wait for this blooming takeover to be done and dusted and we can finally snatch some top top talents again.

    I saw some really shocking behaviour yesterday down at the local beach : A bloke and his wife were having an almighty row in front of a load of kids when the woman smacked the bloke on the head and it all kicked off.
    Someone called the police and the poor copper turned up alone. He got his baton out to the man who snatched it off him and proceeded to beat the crap out of the copper and his poor wife.
    Then out of nowhere a crocodile appeared and stole all the sausages.

    Warren Barton (who now lives in the States)
    has pointed out that even before a signing is
    made or a ball kicked NUFC’s takeover is a
    massive global story and really put us on the map.

    I would imagine that Sky will have a full on glossy presentation all lined up and ready to roll…

    They have had long enough to prepare it…

    Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire) As MBS
    Scarlett Johansson As Amanda Staveley
    Matt Damon and Ben Affleck As the Reuben Brothers

    Directed by Tarantino

    you get the gist 😉
