Newcastle To Make Another Push For Attacker This Morning – Report



Newcastle are making a renewed effort to push through a loan move for Jesse Lingard this morning. This update comes from transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.

It appears that any hope of a permanent transfer has been extinguished. The Telegraph’s Luke Edwards reported last week that Newcastle were willing to offer £12m to bring the 29-year-old in permanently.

Though with Lingard’s contract running out in the summer, the England international is insistent on keeping his options open. Though he seems very keen on coming to Tyneside on a temporary basis to help in our survival fight.

The issue could come down to Manchester United’s willingness to sanction a loan move. Interim manager Ralf Rangnick seems more than comfortable keeping Lingard in tow for the rest of the season and foregoing any potential loan fee.

However, the England international has seen his already minimal game time decrease since the German’s arrival to Old Trafford at the end of November. Lingard has made just three cameos totaling less than 20 minutes under Rangnick.

If Newcastle can offer a significant loan fee, that could benefit all parties involved. It may serve to soften Manchester United’s stance on a loan move.

While they probably want to wait until the end of the window to see if any other permanent offers arrive, Lingard appears very unlikely to make a permanent decision on his future this month.

    I wonder if this will drag on till deadline day, maybe Rangnick not wanting to let him leave unless a replacement is brought in or something?

    Fingers crossed on this one. His ability could really transform us, then we have 6 months to convince him to sign up permanently.

    Lingard and Alli are similar players with similar career trajectory both of them seem more interested in social media than Football at times and both are out of favour at their clubs

    The only difference was Lingard going out on loan last season and showing what he could do was that a flash in pan like Willock for us? Lingard has never previously been that productive in his life!!

    Could Alli turn his career round for us? History usually suggests that a player from the “top 6” who goes down a level rarely comes good again its how Everton are in trouble as they signed loads of those type of players

    LCBP – I think that’s where it comes down to decent management and also the level of risk a club wants to accept. Sure, Everton signed the likes of Iwobi (who definitely has talent but has never shown it consistently) but they also signed the likes of Phil Neville. The recruitment team will have to essentially interview the likes of Alli, Lingard, and Ramsey to find out their interest. Are they more interested in taking it easy, earning loads of money, and maximising commercial opportunities, or do they want to actually achieve something on the pitch? Lingard’s performances last season would seem to say the latter but sitting on the bench at Man Utd again doesn’t seem to be a purely footballing decision, unless he really genuinely felt he could get back into the starting 11.

    Really hope we sign Bakker, the modern day full back we need, quick, good acceleration, strong, can tackle and his delivery is superb.

    Be a great signing

    Morning all
    If alli and lingard were playing top of there game,who would be the better buy,just based on performances,age….u would probs say alli, he’s played more regular,when in form,more england caps,i believe,more goals,more assists,and hes younger….lingard had a good season a few year back then got injured or dropped and was a bit part player,did very well when he went to west ham,which makes him look the more in form player but for me alli is the more effective player when both are at there best….just could we get the best out of either?

    Not sure, just don’t really see why they’re hanging onto him otherwise. Out of contract in 6 months, not in the starting 11, clearly wants to move on to play first team football, won’t get a huge fee for him as everyone knows the situation and longer they leave it the more chance that he leaves for nothing in 6 months.

    @TDS

    Yeah its a risk I would sign one of them and I would lean towards Lingard purely on his West Ham form

    If he could replicate that ability to ghost in and finish he could be perfect for ASM to lay chances into

    SPRINGY – If Alli and Lingard were playing at the top of their game, they’d be playing every week for a CL club. Alli in particular has exceptional talent and was linked with Barcelona at one point I believe.

    ToonDarnSarf @18 Also Lingard has a genuine chance to make the England squad and play in the WC whereas Alli has no chance so Jessie has an obvious incentive in wanting to play regularly.

    You’d have to trust Eddie and Co tp make a good decision as he’s clearly a bright guy, but I’d be concerned about Deli Ali. Seems like an awful tool.

    LCBP – My leaning towards Lingard would be that my priority in terms of signing would be:
    1 – centre back
    2 – defensively minded midfielder
    3 – attacker who can play on the right side

    That would be my reasoning for favouring Lingard, because I’ve seen him play on the right as well as down the middle. I think Ramsey did that in his early days for Arsenal too but I don’t think he has more recently. I think Alli has always had a preference for playing centrally.

    If we could sign the above 3, I’d be delighted with an attacking central midfielder as another signing but I honestly feel those are the 3 highest priority signings.

    Yeah,i just think lingard was more of a squad player for man utd even when he was in fine form,where as alli was playing every week, pulling up trees and being affective in games,making more of a name for himself coz his ability to change games,lingard does look the better of the 2 player ryt now going on current form and attitude defo,just think a year,18mth down the line alli could be the better option….just a thought like

    martoon – If Alli joined us now and was on fire until the World Cup, he’d be in the England squad for sure. Class act when he’s on form. They both should have an incentive to move on, but they have had that for years really.

    SPRINGY – depends what’s in Alli’s head I guess. If he genuinely wants to rediscover his love for the game, then he could be amazing for us. If he just wants to collect his wages and focus on social media, property, or golf, then he can bugger off to America or Qatar.

    I feel Lingard has been underrated and underutilized for some reason. Always rated him…can play all-over the field.
    Sometimes ya dace don’t fit, i guess.
    I think he just wants to play, and he coulda walked into manu’s team…bad management, imv.

    I think the media/press are just linking every defender in the universe, as they know nothing and just follow the lazy-ass ‘Newcastle need defenders’ trope.
    They’ve been playing that ez bs since kk.
    Regardless of our defence’s effectiveness.

    Was Mourinho the manager when Lingard and Alli lost their starting place and form? Not blaming Mourinho, just that some players don’t work well under him.

    Forgive me if this has already been suggested but given how hard we’re finding it in the market at the moment could we potentially raid the Chinese Super League for some players?

    Most of those players headed over to China for the massive wages, presumably wages we could easily match? Off the top my head players like:

    Oscar, Paulinho, Silva (apparently I’m obsessed with Brazilians – behave!) – some decent players that would immediately improve us.

    That being said no clue on their wages and it is my understanding our owners have put a wage structure in place.

    SuperShearer – It’s been suggested. The problem is that some of them are on massive wages (though it’s possible they also haven’t actually been getting paid!) and also that how much motivation do they actually have to go back to a genuinely competitive league and work bloody hard against players of similar (or higher) quality? Presumably they went to China for an easy life, playing against a lower quality of players, and a huge salary.

    Rondon hasn’t exactly worked out for Everton and neither did Rafa come to think of it…

    @ToonDarnSarf – yeah, all good points. Guess it would also signal our desperation.

    I keep coming back to the fact there are SO many quality players out of contract in the summer. If we can stay up, and some haven’t signed pre-contracts elsewhere… you just never know.

    I get why a Lingard is unwilling to sign permanently now. He knows in the summer he can demand a massive signing on fee so if we want him….. offer him one!

    While the win was great at the weekend did we see enough of a spark in midfield to give us hope? Did we create enough? My thinking is if you cannot defend, you have to attack…. and we struggle to do either at the moment.

    SuperShearer – I think a loan for Lingard is likely the best option for all parties. But Man Utd will keep pushing for a permanent deal to get as much money as possible. But to achieve a permanent deal, we’d probably have to offer Man Utd the transfer fee they want AND pay Lingard what he’d also want in Summer. Suspect he’ll move on the 31st January for a hefty loan fee and then he can make his final decision in the summer.

    We played well on Saturday and well enough to stay up if we could do that every game. Definitely room for improvement but that was an excellent result.
