Newcastle Should Not Entertain Any Offers For Resurgent Wing-Back



With all the speculation over targets and expiring contracts, the future of Jacob Murphy has flown under the radar recently. The 26-year-old is coming off his best spell in a Newcastle shirt after starting the final nine matches of the season at right wing-back.

Like a few other Magpies, Jacob is entering the final year of his contract. After his exploits this past season, it should be a no-brainer for Newcastle to tie down Jacob on a new long-term deal.

Hopefully, that is in the works this summer to stave off increasing interest in the wide man. Murphy has been a long-term target of Scottish Champions Rangers. Recently it emerged that Premier League trio Leeds, Southampton, and Watford are admirers and keeping tabs on his situation.


Football Insider have added Germany’s Bayer Leverkusen and Turkish club Galatasaray to Murphy’s list of suitors. Newcastle reportedly value Jacob at just £3m but that is likely only due to his contract situation.

While Steve Bruce has limited funds to work with this summer, selling Murphy for £3m to pad his budget would be a silly decision. Murphy’s proven himself to be a Premier League quality player and a suitable replacement would cost closer to the £10m Newcastle paid for him four years ago.

This past season has been a dream come true for Jacob. His Newcastle career seemed all but over just two years ago before an impressive loan spell at Sheffield Wednesday forced him into Bruce’s thinking last summer.

Murphy impressed in pre-season and ended this past campaign as one of Newcastle’s key contributors. So Newcastle should not entertain any offers that may come in for Jacob but rather get him on a new long-term contract as soon as possible.

    Mund, from previous…

    Like I say i’m not suggesting that they wouldn’t do it, I just don’t see the point. Busy business people all managing to be free at the same time to travel to a specific location. At a time when travelling is still up in the air and frowned upon currently. When a video call, group call or messaging system could do the job just as well and save everyone the hassle and time. Again, not saying it isn’t possible but you must see as well that it seems pretty unnecessary?

    Good article Neil

    Murphy must be kept and offered a new deal it’s a no brainer. He has massively improved and has attacking threat which we are in short supply of.

    Solano,

    He may do, but the plane Reilly put a link to is the one that is being named as the one that flew to Nice.

    Ashley gets a lift off Amanda these days they’re both based in Dubai.

    Carson,

    I can’t say I have. My genre preferences tend to be Horror, Action and Thriller as opposed to the Rich Orgy genre haha

    Afternoon all, was a hard day in the heat today, not complaining just bloody beetroot faced again.

    So the consortium are all meeting up in Nice, why do they need to do that?
    A simple phone call between the parties concerned and it`s sorted.
    Their planes ,Trains and Automobiles may be on the move but it doesn`t mean their owners are on them.
    Remember the last so called mass gathering a few months ago, what happened to that, nothing but mass hysteria came of it.

    WLToon, my thoughts exactly. There is simply no need to meet in person and for busy business people like themselves, I’m sure they would prefer a quick video or call, as opposed to travelling.

    Cleveleys, in this case I think the link Reilly put up and the flight tracker is the thing to go by. Which would mean the Ashley plane mentioned in in fact not in Nice.

    Adam,

    This reactions of some of the posters on here over something like that reminds me of a scene from The Life Of Brian when the slightest sign, even his sandal, convinced the crowd he was erm, Bwian. lol

    Here’s a conspiracy for you, Ashley and the league are in cahoots. This has come just at the right time to get people talking about the takeover and shift attention away from the top 6 fines.

    Never know 😉

    WLtoon,

    If all the news right now is in fact true then there’s be means of getting excited, hell I’d be jumping all over the place! But there’s no need for them all to meet in person, the letter about the league not putting Saudi on a blacklist for piracy was sent in January, the plane mentioned to be in Nice isn’t in Nice and a similar story broke months ago which came to nothing. I understand the excitement but need to stay a bit grounded until we have actual evidence and news to be excited for.

    The citation was for your appreciation of Gin with a slightly off the beaten track mixer!

    I really don’t think the big thing here is the lot of them meeting up in person.

    Nothing eye opening about that whatsoever

    Press Association are reporting that a £300m Saudi-led takeover should get the green light ahead of Mike Ashley’s Competition Appeal Tribunal and an arbitration battle penned in for July.

    I would value at about £15m at the moment. That’s why we must not get rid.
