Newcastle Inching Closer To Second Striker Signing As Details Of Deal Emerge – Report



Newcastle continue to work on multiple deals this Wednesday evening. The push currently is to bring in two center-backs along with Reims striker Hugo Ekitike. The two center-backs being targeted at the moment appear to be Diego Carlos and Benoit Badiashile.

The Telegraph reported earlier today that an improved bid of £28m has been offered for Carlos. While some reports in Spain say Sevilla have rejected it, that has not been confirmed domestically.

Sky Sports’ Dharmesh Sheth is reporting that both Ekitike and Badisashile are keen to come to Tyneside. He believes that Newcastle are inching towards an agreement for Ekitike per a report that can be heard here.

Importantly, Sheth is being told that the 19-year-old wants the move. Newcastle are willing to offer a whopping £27m plus £3m in add-ons for the Frenchman to be paid in installments over the next five years.

Ekitike will not return on loan to Reims but join Newcastle’s first team if the deal can get completed. It looks promising as Sheth is reporting the two clubs are very close to reaching an agreement.

Newcastle appear to have made significant progress on multiple fronts over the past 24 hours. It was just last night that they triggered Chris Wood’s release clause with the 30-year-old set to be unveiled imminently.

    According to this Charnley was indeed handling the Emery and Howe appointments!! That could explain why it took forever!

    Some people will simply always find something to grumble at. What the foot are the chances that Burnley find another Cornet, given the footballing world know they have £20M, Watford found Dennis in the summer, if it was that easy they’d have found the new VVD as well. We spent all last summer going in £500 increments with Arsenal in a back and forth until it reached their asking price. A full summer wasted in haggling with Arsenal. I think k sparky55 had a point in his post the other day.

    Hopefully more than 1 addition. I do think if wood plays we will sneak it by the odd goal. SJP will be rocking and he just might be the difference against Watford who are probably as bad as us atm!
    We will see soon enough.

    Spuds getting taught a lesson, Norwich already down and other than Carlos or ekitike suddenly appearing at Newcastle Airport can’t see a lot more happening today so time for the book of boba followed by the eternals and a quick check back for airplanes landing. Until tmoz bloggers.

    I was half way through Eternals before I got asked to play footy, loved it so far but i don’t think there isn’t a Marvel I wouldn’t love. Boba Fett has been quality as well but I do miss the Mandalorian

    Wood nearly official, Reims striker sounds promising.

    Carlos, hopefully we can agree a deal for

    Fofana linked again.

    If we signed those 4. That maybe enough for now but ideally a second centre back and left back is needed.

    Not sure how long Lewis is out for, Dummett, Manquillo can cover there. Trippier too, then Ritchie if we’re desperate.

    I think he has his heart set on else where or we could of easily done a deal. These ones with contracts running out will just run them down till end of season and have there choice of clubs.

    No new names mate and there hasn’t been any talk of a big name other than Frenkie De Jong which is a stretch to say the least.

    We did get told tho that there is names they are seriously considering that hasn’t been brought up in the media world so could be a surprise signing.

    I would rather they kept their dealings until they are done! Broadcasting who they are trying to get through the door can be very counter productive..A bit naive in fact..
