A New Striker Is Paramount But Local Lad And Former Loanee Should Be Top Priorities



The Chronicle has done a transfer update of sorts this morning and it doesn’t contain any real surprises in it. The cold hard truth is it’s going to be a very underwhelming window after the takeover saga promised such a plethora of world-class players landing at St James Park.

The report by Mark Douglas does firm up some reported interest in players like Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson and Schalke midfielder Weston McKennie. However, it seems that Newcastle could be open to selling Dwight Gayle with newly-promoted West Brom possibly making another move for the 29-year-old.

As far as Wilson goes, Douglas suggests that is one that won’t happen anytime soon. With the window closing in October, Newcastle would likely need to talk Bournemouth down on their valuation of the 28-year-old.


Getting in some strikers is paramount this summer so the club don’t want to leave it too late. But unfortunately, that usually is the modus operandi of this regime.

Matty Longstaff’s contract also expired on Friday so he’s no longer a Newcastle United player, which is sad but expected. However, any club that signs him will have to pay a compensation fee.

We did a report yesterday on how retaining Matty should be a priority along with bringing in a striker. The club should forget about Nabil Bentaleb and focus on getting the local lad to agree to a new deal.

We also think bringing Jetro Willems back in will be another positive move this summer. The Newcastle fans need anything to buoy their spirits and getting Matty and Jetro back this summer would at least bring a few smiles to some faces.

Note – here’s a petition to sign to get an independent review of the EPL Takeover process – please sign it – thanks.

    Dwight Gayle is the only striker we have who looks capable of scoring goals. Carroll and Muto are surplus to requirements.

    Whenever I see Joelinton I think of Jon Dahl Tomasson and what might have been.

    I saw a few people mention trying to get signatures from Saudi.

    Would signatures from overseas count on a UK petition? I’m pretty certain the signatories have to be UK based.

    Crown Prince
    He would do well to clear his £250m investment, which is why he won’t sell at that price. Anyone paying his £350m will have no funds left for real investment in squad or facilities, except of course for the PIF!

    Good morning all, looks like a canny day for a nice drive out.
    I see people still going on about PIF, its over man, history, caput.
    The sooner we get used to having Ashley as our owner indefinitely, the sooner we can move on ith our lives. I know i am.
    The PL can go and do one.

    I am just wondering is it legal for qatar to contact all PL clubs to veto the takeover, yeah fair enough they have paid to broadcast the football but who gives them the divine right to interfear with a takeover, not only have qatar been found out on bunging fifa officals and have been proved in court twice in france and there in court again think in switzerland this time and our clubs accepted it and the PL this has to be illegal
