Report – Newcastle Make Offer For Prolific Young Striker



Newcastle Twitter site NUFC 360 has tweeted the following claim from Arena. They are reporting that Newcastle have made an offer to 18-year-old Malaysian prodigy Luqman Hakim.

As stated above Hakim was one of the Guardian’s top 60 youngsters of 2019. The striker was a standout during the 2019 AFF U-19 Youth Championship in which he scored 4 goals leading Malaysia to the semi-finals.

Last September, he committed to signing a 5-year deal with Belgian first division side K.V. Kortrijk, which is owned by Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan. The deal was set to go through once he turned 18 in March.

However, the coronavirus may have scuppered the move for the time being with the young striker currently playing for the Malaysian club Selangor’s reserve team.

We’re not too sure of the youngster’s current situation with the Belgium club but it looks like a move to Newcastle could be in play.

Hakim is seen as the brightest prospect to come out of Malaysia and could become the heir apparent to the late Mokhtar Dahari, who scored 85 goals for the Malaysian national team in the 1970s and 80s.

Here’s a short YouTube video of the young striker.

    Bills Son Is Back

    @27, previous thread

    I totally agree with you and suspect I did frame my post and response to yours in the conditional – if the report had any basis in fact. We both know it’s the press making up a story line.

    There will be no major, cap spend unless either of the consortium agree or the takeover’s officially dead.

    Ed, formal request: Stop reporting anything that Edwards writes.

    Anybody who hides his articles behind a paywall, then goes on Twitter to rile up fans and wind them up about “not having read the article” can do one.

    Hopefully it goes through
    I’ve sacrificed several of my neighbors cats to the heathen gods to get us help on the deal being finalized

    My very own opinion is that the EPL is having a very hard time to decide the outcome. They have no very solid reason to reject it. They ball is in Saudi’s court I feel, depends how they gonna deal with the piracy stuffs. This piracy situation need to be dealt with sooner or later, if the Saudis plans to have a foothold in Europe football.

    Luqman has been approached directly by the Toon
    Apparently he’s a big fan of Goal !!! and is well
    aware of the Toon , he had a few PL clubs chasing
    him (he is a very special talent) but Covid19 brought
    everything to a halt.

    If it is true that the Saudi,s have Bein Sport viewing in their country, and have blocked BOUTQ, i cant see what else they can do to convince the PL that they making good strides to get rid of piracy in Saudi.

    Where are people getting that Bein is available in SA?

    If that was the case why is hairy hands and a legal rep from Bein talking about there is no legal way to view PL matches in SA?

    That doesn’t sound like Bein are selling subscriptions in SA?

    If that was the case why would they be trying to block this deal if that could result in SA then stopping Bein subscriptions? That makes no sense.

    Its all a grey area as there is little proof in anything right now.

    Though as a note, Bein never stopped the broadcasts to KSA, it was KSA who banned Bein(and all things Qatari) and shut it off inside the Kingdom. Possibly if they have removed their own restrictions then it would be available again?

    The Premier League is managed by placemen and has beens who have the cushiest job going making oodles of dosh without expending any significant effort. When a difficult decision comes along they have no idea or inclination to deal with it. Instead they sit on their hands and do nothing in the hope that some external event will occur that solves their problem for them. This is what is happening right now.

    Why are some of the opinion the Saudi bid is dead in the water…….Why?
    Can someone explain that to me , I honestly don’t understand!

    Premier League don’t want to okay the Saudi……..they won’t say anything hoping it’ll just go away!………..unless I’ve gone completely doolalli , I can not get me head around this!

    We are looking good, next day or two it’ll be announced………in my humble opinion.

    That’s my point though.
    Surely if SA had lifted restrictions then they wouldn’t be trying to block this deal.
    I suspect SA can get Bein but not through legitimate means….as in Bein sport is not making any money from subscriptions within SA.
    Unless SA agree a deal to allow Bein to be legitimately purchased then this takeover is as good as done.

    Moonraker/WL, any ideas what that app is called? I can only find one which is free, but if you use it, it charges you £17/month on subscription which is apparently hard to cancel??

    Id think that the club are approaching people and talking to them, it may be that nickson or whoever has 2 seperate lists to go through but plans will be in place on who we move for depending on the outcome of the takeover.

    dont forget that man city approached Robinho while their takeover was happening to get the deal done before the window closed – abu dhabi told shinawatra’s people to start it and they would finish it off so while 99% of our links will be rubbish, there will be some links which could be correct.

    UAE isn’t SA
    Bein have paid for rights to broadcast across whole of middle east and north Africa.
    If SA are preventing the nation from purchasing packages as you would with sky or bt in this country…then the premier league are going to say…hang on you want to buy a PL club, build a following fanbase but have no legal way of watching them??
    So you’re going to have to.pirate the coverage.
    No chance.

    Re: the BeIn story, I’m pretty sure I saw it reported (somewhere on Twitter) that not only was BeIn now available again in Sa , but it was also streaming into cafes and restaurants, that BeOut had ceased operation and their boxes were no longer working. If all of that is true, I’m sure it’s pretty significant.
