Newcastle Optimistic Deal Can Be Reached After Launching Second Bid – Report

Newcastle have launched a second bid for Sevilla center-back Diego Carlos according to The Telegraph’s Jason Burt. Here is the update from Burt on Twitter.

Our first bid, believed to be around £25m, was rejected with the 28-year-old playing over the weekend. While Burt doesn’t give an indication of what our new bid is, The Shields Gazette and talkSPORT are reporting that the improved bid is £28m.

Burt’s colleague, Luke Edwards, believes there is now optimism that a deal can be reached while suggesting it may even be before this weekend. The Premier League has clarified that players need to be registered by noon on Friday and not Thursday to play on Saturday.

So if Newcastle can reach an agreement by tonight for Carlos, he could be in with a chance of playing against Watford on Saturday. Here is the update from Edwards on Twitter.

Newcastle should have striker Chris Wood confirmed by Thursday at the latest. He’ll follow Kieran Trippier as the second signing of the new era. The duo’s experience are exactly what Newcastle need to help stave off relegation.

However, center-back was identified as the main area of focus before the window opened. Newcastle have still yet to reach an agreement for any of their center-half targets. The plan remains to bring in two in this window.

Carlos appears to have usurped Sven Botman as our top target with Lille unwilling to do business this month. Negotiations also started for Monaco’s Benoit Badiashile. However, conflicting reports on the seriousness of the injury he suffered this weekend has put a deal in doubt.

How Will Newcastle Do Against Watford On Saturday?

    No chance at £28m for their 2nd best CB with their first out injured.

    He’s contracted to 2024 and they’re 2nd in La Liga.

    no idea why we’re not going for Luiz Felipe from Lazio instead if we want an aggressive Brazilian CB.

    Paid dirt wages there and has 6 months left on his contract.

    This guy supposed to be a bit rash in the challenge, even in the box, not sure how that will work out against Premier League Quality players

    If the media are to be believed there are currently 5/6 live deals:

    Carlos – New bid made
    Ekitike – Close to being agreed
    Wood – Medical
    Badiashile – Talks ongoing
    Cantwell – This seems to have died down?
    Ramsey – Supposedly isolating but a strong possibility

    If they are all successful it would be an incredible window. There is no denying that.

    Jmiley because their job/intention is to report, not solely to host a comment section for you.

    More stories, more links, more potential viewers.

    Diego Carlos would instill the same level of “fear” the opposition feels when ASM is on the team sheet, albeit for a totally different reason. This would be a huge signing for the club. Unfortunately I don’t see this happening.

    Has anyone seen us linked to any left backs?

    Digne was obviously linked but that’s been shot down several times and Villa seem strong favourites (still seeing new reports though).

    That would be my only concern, assuming the deals mentioned above truly are live. I don’t rate Ritchie as a left back.

    Does anyone have any idea why they take so long to announce these? Fairly sure I remember with other clubs it be 3-4 hrs after he arrives you’d see him being paraded.

    That’s great that amount of money that has-been raised

    I would say Chuf and Sick Children’s trust at the freeman’s could do with some donations! What a great job they do on little funding

    Looks like we are going for two CBs which is brilliant. Think we’ll end up with Diego Carlos and Botman.

    Ekitiké is unknown to me, not impressive from youtube but that doesn’t exactly tell you a lot.

    Wish we were getting Digne and still think we desperately need a solid CM.

    Digne is very much a French Ritchie.
    If you look at his metrics he’s third on attacking stats,Trent being number one.
    Then if you look at his defensive stats,he’s nineteenth with Trent yet again number one.
    These are for last season by the way,this season Ritchie was number one,for attacking metrics,for the first quarter of the season.

    Was Using it to gauge would it be even possible at this stage to have another player in by Watford and fairly sure its gone too late now with only a day and a half to get everything done..

    BTW fairly sure Carlos wouldn’t have been able to play against Watford because it would take a few days to get his work permit. European players don’t need a visa since brexit but they do need a work permit since brexit.

    It wouldn’t be an issue it would be grated in a few days but it would still take a few days none the less, so he was never going to be available.

    Cantwell not in the Norwich squad tonight.

    Apparently been ill so could be why, but Smith seemed to suggest in his presser this week that he could feature tonight. Could be nothing but just thought I’d share.

    Ash that’s a day and a half like I said, it’s been a day since Wood and still not official so I’m just pointing out its unlikely we will have anyone else in.

    But we definitely wont have a European player in it takes a few days for the work permit to come through. I looked it up earlier.

    Adam interesting! He was due to be available and was travelling tonight. But one of those itk’s on Twitter was adamant he wouldn’t be travelling tonight because he’s coming here. I remember him saying wait and see wait and see, can’t remember which one it was but he was unusually adamant that he won’t be in the squad tonight.

    So maybe he actually does know something.
