This Forgotten Man Unlikely To Have A Future At Newcastle



If the Premier League League steps up to the plate soon and allows the Amanda Staveley led takeover of Newcastle to go through, there are several players whose Newcastle career will be over.

One of those is likely to be winger Jacob Murphy, who has been on loan since January of last year.

He was at West Brom from January of last season, and this season he has spent time on loan at Sheffield Wednesday.

The 25-year-old has played 41 times in all competitions this season with 7 goals and 4 assists, so he has had a decent loan spell at Hillsborough.

But Jacob (shown above in Sheffield Wednesday’s colors) has had a tough time of it at Newcastle since Rafa Benitez signed him in July 2017 for a fee of around £12M.

It has not turned out to be a good buy by Rafa.

Jacob’s only played 41 games for Newcastle with a single goal and 3 assists, and we don’t see much of a future for this player on Tyneside, especially if the takeover is approved,

But it seems like Owls’ manager Garry Monk is keen on the winger and wants to keep Jacob in Sheffield for next season.

This is what Monk has said as reported in the Yorkshire Live:

“I’ve been delighted with him,”

“I’ve said if there is an opportunity to bring him back next year, we don’t know yet because we’re not even concentrating on that, but if there was then he’s the type of player I want to work with.”

“He’s improving and has improved throughout the season.”

“If the opportunity is there (bring him back) then yes, but we want to concentrate on these games and then take care of that side of it afterwards.”

Newcastle will not know whether Jacob is available until the Premier League breaks the logjam on the takeover.

He has a better chance of being recalled to Tyneside, if Steve Bruce is still the manager next season, and Jacob seems to have improved a lot while on loan this season.

But the Premier League is a lot tougher than the Championship, of course.

What do you think?

    We’ve got no chance of shifting Ritchie or Shelvey, they’ve been looked after for saying nice things about Mikey.

    I enjoyed the UFC Tinman, results went the way I expected. Truthfully Masvidal had more success than I thought he would early on. Might have a decent chance in a rematch with a full camp

    They also said nice things about Bruce, clearly a criminal offence.

    Gayle, Yedlin, Schar, Clarke, Muto and Atsu could go, would like to put Krafth on that list but he’s on a four year deal. That would pave the way for six quality upgrades in the window.

    the player i am more suprised about is schar really, I thought he could have slotted straight into that midfield slot but got that badly wrong, I am more then suprised about how they played v watford mind after first half show then the crap they dished out in the second half, ive seen pub teams play better then that, the players deserve what they get, you dont put pride and play well in the shirt then off you go dont deserve to be in our team

    Two top quality FB’s, two strikers, DM and AM, that will be enough to target top eight and build from there.

    What happens if this isn’t sorted by the time the season restarts, we’ll be going in to the new season with a relegation threatened team with no signings of any note. They could well take a hit on the 17M and think it’s not worth it.

    Despite all of the tedious arguments this season we should remember one thing, nufc will have new owners soon. Ashley will be gone and the biggest single reason for the club’s woes for more than a decade will be gone. And with that, I’m off to cook a roast and drink some wine

    Schar looked class last year, Longstaff was worth 30M, how much now, lucky to get 7M for Gayle, club is run like a shambles yet he keeps insisting on running it his way.

    I dont think it will drag on that far really jail, I think if they tried that one the amount of shit they will get from us the fans plus the city and everything else via saudi investments in the uk it would take a very brave man to try and stop that
