Newcastle One Of Four Premier League Clubs In Talks For Young International – Report



Mike Ashley’s hope of a quick resolution in his bid to sell Newcastle United was dealt a death blow on Monday as arbitration has been delayed until early 2022 due to issues with the disclosure of evidence.

In all likelihood, Mike Ashley and Newcastle United are stuck with each other for at least another season – another taxing and lost season.

Whether this latest disappointment will spark a rethink in Ashley’s plans for this upcoming campaign remains uncertain. Though he may feel inclined to back Steve Bruce a bit more with transfers as he can’t wipe his hands clean of the club until at least next year.

Bruce reportedly has just £10m in the coffers to improve this squad. He recently revealed work is being done on up to three targets, one of which is Arsenal’s Joe Willock. This morning the Gunners have had to cancel their trip to Orlando for the Florida Cup due to positive Covid tests.

After Newcastle’s friendly at York City on Sunday, Bruce expressed concern with his midfield stating ‘we are very, very short.’ So the middle of the park appears to be the focus right now in terms of additions.


Newcastle are in discussions over loans for Willock as well as Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher. On Monday, French journalist Loic Tanzi claimed we were tracking Midtjylland’s Jens Cajuste.

French club Rennes has had to cool their interest in the 21-year-old after two failed bids, the latest one a reported £10m. Tanzi reported that Brentford and Newcastle had entered the fray for the young Swedish international.

That claim has been backed up by Swedish outlet Expressen. They are reporting that Newcastle have held discussion with Cajuste’s representatives as well as his club over a move.

However, Newcastle are just one of four Premier League clubs to have held talks along with Leeds, Wolverhampton, and Crystal Palace. Brentford wasn’t mentioned in this latest report.

The defensive midfielder was not in Midtjylland’s squad for their Champions League qualifying match at Celtic yesterday. Though he did return late for pre-season training due to his involvement in the European Championships with Sweden which could be the reason.

Midtjylland want £11.8m (140m krona) for Cajuste according to the Swedish report. Though The Chronicle reports that his price tag is £13m. At the moment, even the lower amount exceeds Bruce’s budget but wouldn’t rule out a loan with an option to buy. Bruce could also receive a minor bump with Florian Lejeune’s pending sale.

However, with up to four other EPL clubs on his trail, Newcastle are going to have a very difficult time landing the midfielder without more backing from Mike Ashley.

    Personally the house analogy works for me
    If it was my business-thankfully it isn’t cos I would have to put up with you lot lol-I wouldn’t put one penny more into it than is absolutely necessary because it wouldn’t make financial sense to do so
    However now there is a crack in the wall which I have to repair so the honourable MA has to open the purse and that’s the bottom line Stone Cold said so

    The Court of Appeal insisting on the matter being “of public interest” referred to the outcome, the judgement of Arbitration being in the public interest.

    It didn’t support the proposal that the Arbitration hearing proceedings be open to the public domain.

    On Facebook i see a lot of Chronical and Gazette posts regurgitation the same old takeover stories, makes you wonder why they hate the North East so much considering they are local.
    If theses tabloids used their energies in actually investigating Masters and the sleaked 6 digging up as much dirt as possible, surely that would make a much bigger exclusive.

    I wonder when we’ll hear from the Bruce and what’s bubbling away in the background. I’d probably feel sorry for him if he hadn’t of jumped in feet first to the whole sorry saga. “Mike’s been straight with me” he’s about to find out that sucking up to Mike for two years might keep you in a job but doesn’t stop him throwing you to the wolves when it suits him.

    Oh yes Tuffers, and superpowers to go with it!

    I was hoping you could come up with a dynamic duo name for carltoon and I when we bring the season to a halt.

    Super Gran is already taken and I’m a bit out of the Worsel Gummidge mould so there’s your starter for 10.

    You know what is really creepy and really quite sad, that Jibbers spends all day everyday tweeting about bloggers on here to his half a dozen disciples. You’d think a bloke with so much money from his house sales, his plethora of celebrity friends and his multi-national business network that he might get out a bit more 😳
    Hiya Jibbers.

    From an article:
    “Now, all you NUFC fans hanging on Social Media for an answer please don’t get excited. For I do not have one. I do have an opinion and I’ll give that, but I’d go as far as to say I don’t have a Scooby-Doo what the actual meaning is nor does anyone else for that matter.

    Mrs Staveley seemed in a bullish mood last week when questioned about the whole thing last week by the self-acclaimed fountain of all knowledge Simon Jordan on TalkSport. Jordan has an agenda and that is to be controversial and ensure that he keeps getting invited back.

    NUFC fans could have been forgiven for getting excited as Staveley clearly was passionate about the deal and clearly sad it will go through. Surely she knew about the arbitration delay. If not then what Creedence can we put on any claims”

    Like he says she must have known and that’s why she was giving interviews last week. It begs the question then, how come all these ITK’s who have ‘reliably’ informed us of events about to take place before they happen, not one of them called this one???

    Not sure if I’m getting this right.
    I read something like this with another club.
    Can’t PIF purchase around 80% of the club without needing permission, through shares?

    Then later Ashley could sell the Ruben brothers 10 – 15 % odd and Amanda could purchase the other 5-10 % ?

    I could be totally wrong of course but I’m sure clubs have done this before in the past?
