Newcastle Now Linked With Summer Move For Premier League Midfielder



Newcastle have a bit of a glut in the midfield at the moment which has kept Joe Willock out of the starting eleven over the past four matches. Though the 21-year-old has maximized his impact off the bench with three late goals in his three substitute appearances.

Despite Steve Bruce fielding three midfielders in a 5-3-2, the battle for places remains intense. In addition to Willock, Bruce also has Jeff Hendrick and Matty Longstaff as options. Though Hendrick hasn’t played much recently while Matty Longstaff continues to be left out of matchday squads

Bruce has already expressed his desire to bring Willock back next season, which should be one of our top priorities this summer. It also appears that Celtic center-back Kristoffer Ajer is a top target with recent claims that an Β£8m offer is being prepared.


The Guardian has just published a report that Newcastle are potentially interested in Southampton midfielder Mario Lemina, who is currently on loan with an option to buy at Fulham.

The Cottagers are in dire straights. They are 7 points from safety with just 5 matches remaining so taking up their purchase option on Lemina is doubtful at the moment. They’ll need to pick up a few wins down the stretch, something they have had massive difficulty accomplishing all season.

The report claims the Gabon international will be available for Β£7m should he return to Southampton. West Ham are also said to be interested in the 27-year-old who hasn’t played for the Saints in two seasons despite being a record signing in 2017 from Juventus.

Transfer funds are likely to be limited at Newcastle for the next few windows. So we’ll have to spend very wisely. Lemina would be a solid addition to the midfield and good business at Β£7m under normal circumstances.

However, the financial impact of the pandemic has decimated the transfer budget. So if Willock returns next season, then shelling out cash for a midfielder who turns 28 in September may not make sense for Newcastle this summer.

    The Missus retires today after 40 plus years nursing with the NHS. all ‘front line’.

    Newcastle folk have been such a part of her life. Super proud.

    Taking a stroll around Leazes Park and SJP looks wonderful in the sunshine.

    Why?
    Because she’s 3hours late, after running a clinic and saying goodbye to patients and colleagues.

    She’ll need a new hobby.
    If Mrs. Lochinver appears on the blog we’re in trouble?

    Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen, they say a day is a long time in Politics, well the same could be said for this blog, yesterday was like world war three, just catching up on todays posts and i must say what a difference a day makes fellow Toon fans, brilliant contributions by everyone folks, it was a joy to behold and great to see. One post made me a little unhappy, perhaps not unhappy but very envious, a certain blogger who will remain nameless, but ill give you a clue, he has travelled the world extensively, probably even more than Michael Palin, or Michael Portillo, was sitting supping pints in a beer garden in Blackpool, jesus some people have all the luck πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    I was a little embarrassed so was waiting for the right time on the night shift to acknowledge your kind words in a more intimate setting.

    I’ve got the Tsunki vigil candles in place ready to light and the incense sticks waiting to create the right ambience.

    But seeing as you’ve brought it forward, cheers mate.

    Regan, magicmac, carltoon

    Thanks for the kind words, I’ll tell her when she eventually walks out the door, now 3andhalf hours late. Think she’s chained herself to the medicine trolley.

    Me, I’ll probably get arrested for pissing in the bushes at Leazes Park while I’m waiting!, Still I look at SJP and dream. Lochinar scores hatrick in last five minutes to help beat the scousers 4-3. First goal I had an assist.

    Build it and they will come

    More than special
    Bit of a legend in her field and much loved by 4 decades of folk and their families many of who have had major trauma.

    Gotta go, she’s ready to leave the building.

    End of an era.
    Not bad for a wee Durham lass who’s grandpa was a pitman

    Give you missus a big hug from me, she is a hero both now and for the great service in the last 40 years.

    She is well deserving of her retirement and I hope she enjoys it.

    Mind you after working all that time it may take her some time to adjust to civilian life.
    She might also find a few jobs for you to do around the house! πŸ™‚
