Newcastle Offer Significant Loan Fee For Lingard As Move For Left-Back Collapses – Report



Earlier this morning, Fabrizio Romano claimed Newcastle would make a renewed push for Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard today. That could be in the shape of a £5-6m loan fee if
The Telegraph’s Luke Edwards has his finger on the pulse.

According to Edwards, Newcastle will offer the £5-6m loan fee as well as pay Lingard’s £80,000 per week in wages for the final 17 games of the season. That high of a loan fee should be enough to tempt Manchester United into sanctioning the loan.

Incidentally, 90min’s Graeme Bailey is reporting a loan fee of £10 has been offered though that seems extremely high. However, whatever it takes to get the 29-year-old in on loan could be the approach over the next few days.

Edwards also believes that the Aaron Ramsey saga could end with the player becoming a Magpie. Newcastle have received positive feedback from Ramsey’s camp and with Juventus desperate to offload the Wales international, something could develop this week.

Newcastle continue to work on Diego Carlos and are contemplating a late-window push for Burnley’s James Tarkowski. Both moves appear doubtful and Newcastle must find a center-back before the end of the month.

There have been recent links with Southampton duo Mohammed Salisu, a former target when he was with Valladolid in Spain, and Jan Bednarek. Southampton are unwilling sellers so the hunt for a central defender continues on.

Edwards also has some disappointing news in that the move for Bayer Leverkusen’s Mitchel Bakker has collapsed. A source has told him the Dutchman will definitely not be joining Newcastle this month.

Newcastle could be in decent shape at left-back with Jamal Lewis, Paul Dummett, and Javier Manquillo all having good spells there recently. It seems that Matt Ritchie’s day as a fullback could be over.

As of now, the mood is bright on Lingard but less so on defenders. It appears that Joelinton’s injury could keep him out for a stretch which is why Ramsey has suddenly become a focus.

***Here are some details of an upcoming charity event some may be interested in***

NUFC Legends Copy

NUFC legends team up for 2022 charity event in Gosforth
Four iconic former Newcastle United Football players are to come together for a special charity event at The Grand Hotel in Gosforth on Friday 8 April 2022. The event will reunite Kevin Keegan’s famous 90s “Entertainers” team, including former star midfielder Rob Lee, famed left-back John Beresford, former Northern Irish winger Keith Gillespie and the club’s legendary centre back and England international, Steve Howey. Featuring an auction, raffle and two-course meal, the charity event – organised by friends and NUFC nuts Les Hancock and Terry Sweeney – will be a smart-casual dinner event aimed at all supporters of the team.

Commenting on the event, John Beresford said: “I’m really looking forward to April 8th when myself, Keith Gillespie, Rob Lee and Steve Howey will head to Gosforth Park where we’re going to have a few reminisces and some entertainment to go with it. We’re going to be telling some funny stories; things you’ve probably never heard before. It’s going to be humorous, let’s put it that way! It’s all for two fantastic causes; Tiny Lives Trust and Wallsend Boys Club. I really can’t wait and I hope to see you there”

The evening is dedicated to the memory of Brian Paddison, a popular Newcastle businessman, charity fundraiser and passionate Newcastle United fan. All proceeds from the event are to go straight to Tiny Lives Trust and the legendary Wallsend Boys Club which has produced over 80 professional football players since its formation, including Alan Shearer, Alan Thompson, Steve Watson and Michael Carrick.

Tickets for the NUFC Legends Charity Evening are priced at £45 and can be purchased via email at lesnufc@yahoo.com or over the phone by contacting organisers Les Hancock on 07779 841293 or Terry Sweeney at 07968 126622.

    Essex from previous – Lingard is out of contract in the summer so there wouldn’t be a future fee. Seems like Man U want a permanent deal now but Lingard wants to keep his options open for when his contract expires. So the 10mil of whatever we’re willing to pay is to get the deal done in Jan. Supposed interest from spurs & west ham but man u don’t want to sell to a direct rival for the second half of the season.

    Makes sense of the Lingard situation and Manure playing hardball.

    I don’t understand why we don’t just buy him for say 15 million, and give him a relegation release clause with a 30 million release trigger, and if worst comes worse we do go down and someone triggers the release fee then we make 15 million anyway.

    If we stay up and he still wants to go we still make 15 million.

    If we stay up and he wants to stay then we have a valuable asset on the books and the potential to make more money in the future.

    Or is that just plain stupid!

    Lingard doesn’t want to come and wants to wait until summer when he can get 10 million signing on fee for himself – can’t blame him

    We have a week to bring in the players we need but it doesn`t look as though the club are making any progress at all, now Bakker has said he isn`t interested, really?
    Have the club not agreed terms with the player, or is that just rumour.
    We have supposedly agreed terms with at least half a dozen players yet there is nothing developing from any of those deals.
    As for Ali from the Deli, no thanks. Imo he would be a disaster, he is not interested in anything other than how he looks and i think he would be a huge problem in the dressing room.
    Come on, he hasn`t kicked a ball for that long i had forgotten all about him.
    I wouldn`t like him in the trenches with me, foot that

    Remember the rumours , that no PL club would deal with us?
    That’s why I think Manure are stringing us along . I don’t think they have any intention of doing a deal with us.
    I do hope I’m wrong because I think Lingard would be a great signing

    Newcastle have offered €55M for Sevilla centre-back Diego Carlos, his agents are negotiating his exit with the Andalusian club. [

    I don’t understand why if these reports are true we are trying to sign players for cheaper than there value, it sounds like they are looking for bargain buys bot I’m afraid now isn’t the time for it, we need players though the doors and quickly, a fluke win at Leeds isn’t going to save our season and we are extremely inconsistent and will probably lose again against Everton if new faces aren’t brought in and quickly. We are the richest club in the world ffs! Splash the cash on the players we need, that is defence midfield and another striker and get it done quickly, signing 2 players when we need basically a whole new team isn’t going to cut it I’m afraid….

    Mickey G – looking at it from the other clubs’ perspective there are two things to consider:
    1 – if they believe there’s a high chance we’ll get relegated, might as well not loan players to us and slow down our progress.
    2 – if they believe there’s a high chance we’ll stay up, might as well loan players to us and see us take points from their competition.

    Agreed on Lingard.

    Another Rose in the making.

    Attitude stinks and lost his love for football.

    ——-
    If we want somebody for that RW berth, I’d prefer we go for a left-footer who can cut inside like Allan does, provide a real goal threat and doesn’t stifle Trippier.

    I liked the look of that French kid we were linked with last week. Not Ekiteke, the other one whose name escapes me, was a very brief mention of him.

    Another player we should look at Chukwueze for that position. Nigerian, at Villareal, bags of potential and adept at cutting inside. 18 months left on his contract, only 22yo. Will not be on more than £20k pw there.

    We seem to favour PL experience for some positions and not others, but especially for attacking players I think no PL experience can be a very good thing. The element of surprise and a lack of knowledge about a player from the oppositions coaches and players, can help them make an impact.

    Hope things start moving imminently and we get a breakthrough. Been very frustrating since Wood’s arrival.

    I think fans thinking there will a be one or two statement signings while the team are in Saudi might be disappointed.
    It`s looking more and more likely that any deals getting done will be on the final day when selling clubs realise we aren`t going to be held to ransom and finally accept offers on the table, that`s if those offers are genuine.
    We might get a coupe of loan deals done on the final day, which i think is the most likely outcome.
    Which players will they be, god knows.

    Not sure what’s going but, but like I said in an earlier post…is it a position we need to fill now?

    IF (big if) we get a good defensive midfielder to play along side Shelvey and Joe, with ASM and Murphy on the outsides, then doesn’t Joe become Lingaard?

    Not fussed about that left back. We have Dummet and Lewis for that position and Manquilo has proved he’s more than capable. Not a priority.

    Lingard, Ramsey, Carlos and Zapata would be mouthwatering!!!

    A fluke win? WTF you taking about?

    I’ll tell you now I’ll take another 10 fluke wins if that’s the case.

    A top performance and a deserved win with every player leaving there all on the pitch.

    The owners aren’t trying to get bargain buys ffs man. Would we be bidding big money for two CB’s if they are looking for bargain buys? Are you sure your head isn’t still in the Ashley era?

    Me too…centre half and centre Mid and a centre forward…I think the rest can wait.

    Lingaard has obviously got issues as well, maybe he’s half way down that same slope that Alli is already at the bottom of.

    Man U seem to making moves on Kamara, we should therefore be all over Zakaria with 6 months left on his contract.

    Zapata as much as he improves us, I find the reported allocation of £38m of our budget on another ST who will be 31yo in April very strange and not very appealing.

    Spend that cash on CM. Zakaria should surely be gettable for less than £15m given his contract situation.

    Swiss international so familiar with playing in front of Schar too.

    Maybe PIF have put a limit on the January spend, has anyone though of that.
    The budget might be 100M, of which they have already spent 37M, and signing Carlos for 55M would leave only 8M for any other deals.
    I`m not saying there is a limit, i just think they won`t be spending money as though it`s going out of fashion.
    I hope i am proved totally wrong.

    Everything should be took with a pinch of salt. We should never fully believe anything we see or hear. I like the links tho and I like the bits of stuff that goes about but I’ll never take it as gospel. Like you say mate it’s best for every fan to have a middle ground with this kind of stuff so we don’t have emotions going one way or another.

    The only thing that matters IMO is the fact we have ambitious owners who want to take us to the very top. Let’s enjoy the ride 😎
