Fresh Details Emerge On Three Transfers Newcastle Are Currently Pursuing



There are very encouraging details emerging on Newcastle’s pursuit of Lyon midfielder Bruno Guimaraes. The 24-year-old has reportedly agreed to the move with a medical scheduled in his native Brazil. Discussions over personal terms are also planned in the near future.

As reported earlier, Lyon accepted Newcastle’s offer of just over £30m for the playmaker. The majority of local outlets are backing the claims that this move is heading in a very positive direction as is Fabrizio Romano.

Talk of a late move for Brighton’s Dan Burn is also gaining momentum. The 29-year-old was reported to be a potential target late last night. Football Insider is reporting that Newcastle are now in advanced talks over a £10m deal for the local man.

The 6’7″ defender is a Geordie and would likely jump at the chance of a move to Tyneside. This represents such a dream opportunity for Burn that Brighton may not have it in their hearts to block the move.

The fee being quoted represents a sizeable profit on a player entering the final 18-months of his contract. He also turns 30 before this season concludes. So this could be a transfer that benefits all parties as Burn is a solid player who will be joining for his love of the club.

The Telegraph has provided further details of Newcastle’s push for Jesse Lingard. There were reports late last night that the move was all but dead.

However, that may be jumping the gun a bit. Luke Edwards is reporting that the stumbling block is down solely to a sizeable bonus of £12m should Newcastle survive this season. The loan fee Manchester United are requiring is only £2.5m.

Newcastle rightly feel the survival bonus is extortionary while The Red Devils maintain it to be reasonable considering the high stakes in play. Relegation would prove a massive pitfall to Newcastle’s future plans.

Manchester United have knocked back approaches from West Ham, Tottenham, and Everton. They appear to only be willing to do business with Newcastle with the bonus remainingthe sole stumbling block.

A compromise may be able to be reached before the window closes on Monday. An obvious one is to increase the loan fee by a fee million while decreasing the bonus clause to around £2-3m.

Newcastle get their man for a slightly inflated loan price while Man U receive a decent fee for a player they lose for nothing in the summer. However, there appears to be a lot more at play than money on this one.

    Apparently truth doesn’t matter folks. If we choose to believe that Lyon have accepted the offer, then that’s ok.

    Afternoon Fellow Fans

    Just had a chance to have a brief look at this lad Bruno on a few youtube videos, he looks very impressive indeed, ive been saying consistently our priority is to strengthen our weakest link which in my opinion is our midfield, if we can get another quality midfielder through the door i think that will keep us up, although another quality center half would be the icing on the cake. I dont think we will sign more than 5 players as we are still going to need the majority of our present squad to keep us up and maintain harmony in the whole squad HWTL

    ManUre can go a do one as far as I am concerned. They’re a club in a downward spiral who are arrogant and deluded. They’re haemorrhaging money, have a reducing fan base and have underacheived for many years. They’ll soon be a mid table club
