Report – Newcastle Tracking Another Teenage Striker For Summer Move



Over the weekend, reports claimed that Newcastle were still on the trail of Wigan striker Kyle Joseph. The 19-year-old had an impressive season for the Latics after breaking into the first team at the start of the season.

Joseph is out of contract in the summer and would cost Newcastle a compensation fee in the £500-850k range. The recent reports have Newcastle leading the race for the former Scotland U19 international.

It appears that Joseph isn’t the only 19-year-old striker on Newcastle’s radar. The Mail is reporting that Nice’s Evann Guessand has piqued our interest. The report claims Newcastle and Southampton are battling it out over the former French U18 international.


Guessand spent this past season on loan with Swiss Super League club Lausanne Sport where bagged 7 goals with 4 assists in 31 appearances (22 starts). He played primarily as a center-forward but also filled in on the left on occasion.

The Nice Academy product made his debut for the first-team last January and had 2 appearances early this season before beginning his loan spell. While it’s not mentioned in the report, it appears that his contract runs out this summer.

Newcastle need to add to the Academy ranks, especially upfront. Elias Sorensen will return from his year-long loan spell with Almere City while Tom Allan’s spell with Accrington Stanley was terminated in January after just four appearances. We also have Yannick Toure but he’ll be 21 in September and doesn’t seem to have progressed as much as hoped.

Getting Joseph and Guessand in this summer should help boost the Academy with some solid forward prospects. This has to be a continuous effort each window to add a few promising youngsters to the mix like we did with Rodrigo Vilca las summer and Matthew Bondswell earlier this year.

    This young lad, a CF with 7 goals in 31 games and can also play on the left.

    Like the sound of that, shall we say 40m?

    Adding players to the academy yes is important, but how many in the past ten years have actually become regulars in the first team.
    Can Newcastle also look at what we need for our first team and cut some dead wood.
    Another season of this shite will see the dice roll to us relegated.
    Priority first team, Priority New Manager, Priority New Owner.
    Would be nice to get all three but first one right now should be the main one.
    Some will say to hold out because we are getting purchased, I for one don’t care until that’s signed sealed and delivered.
    We can’t wait around and lose out on n targets like we do every year on a fairy tale.

    Could he be the next Ivan Toney?
    Under Bruce doubt it.
    Under an enlightened manager, maybe.

    mud slinging is more where there isnt proof of what is being said isnt it? Bruce IS the manager with the worst win % in PL history isnt he?

    therefore not really mudslinging to be fair to the frog on this occassion.

    OK did more research (wish I knew what I was doing. :lol:)

    Definitely nothing on diary of upcoming events, so no date yet.

    Don’t know if 5/7/21 has a significance or is just a case file reference number. Our case is 1402/5/7/21. The fact it looks like a date may be coincidental but I’ve checked other cases and they all end with what looks like dates. So maybe this is the document deadline date.

    Wish I knew a competition case lawyer 🙂

    bruce seems to have raised the ante against NUFC fans from day 1. Could you imagine KK, SBR, RB, CH, GR going to war on your own fans the way bruce has from the get go, much like his boss. Toxic owner, toxic manager.

    We get a performance at LCFC and bruce can’t just leave it. What is he trying to achieve with all his negative energy and blaming everyone but himself?

    Have an opinion that someone disagrees with

    Have a go at other posters for reading and having opinions on a public blog

    As I said before if the takeover doesn’t go through and Ashley and Bruce are pleading poverty they need to be held to account

    Ashley has furloughed all non playing staff all season so hes lost no money out of this adventure

    TV money, sponsorship and staggered player payments have come in there should be no way that we shouldn’t be able to plug the gaps in our squad especially with players leaving that are out of contract

    So if its the chuckle brothers in charge here is my bargain budget squad reshuffle even if we just replaced the free transfers with players we would see a big improvement:

    Free transfers out:
    Gayle
    Carroll
    Atsu
    Saviet

    In

    Benteke – free transfer
    Willock – loan with option to buy
    Gallagher – loan with option to buy

    Even that on a budget would improve our squad significantly but if we could get rid of:

    Lejuene
    Muto
    Hendrick

    For a small fee and then spent the money on

    Armstrong – 10 million with Matty Longstaff on loan for a season
    Ajer – 8 million

    That would give us some decent strength in depth especially if we stick to the 352 which seems to be the best option with the players we have

    Why do you think anything I say is aimed at you?

    You go on like we haven’t been over this crap a thousand times and you act like it’s the first time hearing it.

    I told you why I keep positive the other week and you understood. I also keep positive of what I know and what I see. I’m a very resourceful person, more so than the next man.

    You shouldn’t want to shit on other peoples positivity as that looks pretty bad tbh

    You are welcome to think what you like and you don’t see me shooting down every negative post you put up I just let you get on with it as I’ve said before I respect you as a fan but that feeling doesn’t seem to be mutual
