Newcastle Continue To Make Progress On Two Targets



Newcastle are still working on multiple fronts with time ticking down on the winter window. Deals for Lyon midfielder Bruno Guimaraes and Bayer Leverkusen left-back Mitchel Bakker are currently in play.

The Chronicle is reporting that Guimaraes has a medical scheduled for Friday. The 24-year-old is with the Brazilian national team, who have a World Cup qualifier at Ecuador tomorrow night.

Reports earlier on Wednesday claimed that Lyon had accepted an offer in the region of £33.5m. Soon after Lyon released a statement calling reports in the press false. However, Lyon have done this before and it relates to them being a publicly listed company.

According to Lee Ryder’s report, French football experts have noted that this is their usual policy. Lyon must report ‘any significant business to the stock exchange first.’ So the club appear to have been quick to tamp down false information as details of the agreement had not been announced yet.

Many reports have the size of the fee agreed upon but the structure of Newcastle’s payments are yet to be finalized. Newcastle want to make the payments in installments while Lyon, who are in some financial difficulty, would prefer as much of the fee paid upfront as possible.

Hopefully, Newcastle don’t get too fancy with their requests as getting a player of the quality of Guimaraes for £33.5m is a fantastic deal. The playmaker could transform this side if he can hit the ground running.

Newcastle are also hoping to convince Mitchel Bakker to ditch Leverkusen after just six months. Reports are that Newcastle have offered £16m for the 21-year-old which would represent a sizeable profit for the German club.

Reports earlier in the week hinted that Bakker was not convinced of joining Newcastle despite an agreement with Leverkusen seeming close. Newcastle then appeared to have moved on to Atalanta’s Robin Gosens.

However, the German left-back preferred a move to Inter Milan, who were also in for him. Fabrizio Romano is reporting that Gosens will join Inter tomorrow as the deal appears to be all but done.

Bakker is six years younger than Gosens and better defensively. So if we can get the fiery Dutchman in, he could turn out to be an excellent signing. It appears that Leverkusen are currently sounding out replacements, though they do have Daley Sinkgraven and Piero Hincapie already in place.

    Some decent players in the frame. If we could get 2 of them in before we resume PL hostilities I would be delighted.

    I know I’m sad but just watched a rerun of the Leeds game and what a performance that was.
    The team spirit under Eddie is phenomenal it really is!
    This is the start of a fantastic period in our history; I wish I was 20 years younger! 🙁

    Puffin browser is required as its the easiest and best browser for football stream playback on nvidia shield. Its easier to stop all the pop ups and adverts etc and to watch it full screen. However you need to pay for it after a few days so I stopped using it. I used the Nvidia Shield and I have to say I dont recommend it at all if its just for football streaming.
    What I do recommend instead is buy a mini pc and connect it to your big tv via hdmi and watch games that way. The games will be smoother. When using Nvidia shield and if the matches buffer or freeze and you need to refresh its too much hassle using the remote to sort everything out again. Hope that helps

    I hope we do not buy a fourth Brazilian if we get Carlos, and Bruno to play with Joe. You can unbalance the team and undo all of Ashley’s hard work.

    And France just reach the semi finals of Handball european championship after defeating Danemark on the buzzer. Another title in sight for french team sport.

    You know, sometime, it’s tiring to win almost everything.

    Yedlin clearly off to Liverpool to take over for TAA. Show him how to play. Marveaux banging in goals in the US 2nd league, a hidden gem! I’m sure Paul Scharner can be picked up from his Sunday league team to finish off your upgraded team Kets

    Good effort mate, but it was the revenge of the olympic final!

    And we played with half of our team, thanks to COVID.

    And… We won again!

    Really I don’t think Lyon are going to fight much on us on this one. SSN with their sensationalist headlines. I think they would want more cash up front instead of so many installments and that shouldn’t be a problem for us. I can see us getting our guy this time, hopefully early on Friday.

    Well, as you know, i was a bit sceptical this afternoon, but tonight, french media are absolutely positive: it’s done.

    So would be a massive reversal at this stage.

    Looking at Bakker he has got a cracking cross on him and has pace, him and Trippier putting in exorcets for Wood and Wilson , very tasty.

    Former Newcastle defender DeAndre Yedlin is now a free agent after leaving Galatasaray by mutual consent.

    He’s been linked to Hull.
