Defender Alerts His Club That He Wants Newcastle Move – Report



Newcastle reportedly made progress on two deals on Wednesday while suffering setbacks on two others. The news on Lyon’s Bruno Guimaraes and Bayer Leverkusen’s Mitchel Bakker is positive with agreements closed to be reached.

However, the move for Jesse Lingard is fraught with doubt after it was revealed that Manchester United want a £12m survival bonus included in the five-month loan. Newcastle have rightfully balked at the extortionary clause.

Newcastle also saw a bid of £8m turned down for Dan Burn by Brighton. The 29-year-old has just 18-months left on his contract and Newcastle’s offer is almost triple what The Seagulls paid for him in 2018.

As one would have expected from a local lad, Burn is desperate for this move to happen. According to Football Insider, the Blyth-born defender has alerted Brighton of his desire to move back to the north-east.

Burn was on Newcastle’s books until being released at age 11. He joined a few local academies before latching on with Darlington on a professional contract in 2009. He moved to London with Fulham 2 years later where he spent the next five years.

After being released by The Cottagers, the 6’7″ defender signed for Wigan before being snapped up by Brighton in 2018 for around £2.7m. He since been a regular for Brighton in their push to become an established Premier League club.

Newcastle remain interested in bringing Burn back to Tyneside. According to this latest report, they are preparing an improved offer and hope to reach an agreement to add Burn to the ranks by Monday.

    Wouldn’t surprise me to see some sort of twist in the Bruno transfer today. We’ve already had all journalists/media outlets cover every angle. We’ve had a bid accepted, not had a bid accepted yet because of installments, player wants to join, personal terms not agreed yet, medical yesterday, medical today, medical tomorrow, Lyon announcement rejecting a deal has been reached and also that Lyon have a history of doing that and it’s for stock reasons.

    So that’s every base covered. I’m very hopeful it get’s completed and from what Niafron has told us, it sound positive over there in France too. But i’m very much still staying grounded for now as it sounds like nobody truly knows what stage it’s at or what’s going on. Like every story with us so far really.

    Not holding my breath on any specific transfers until I see them signed and confirmed by club but I do believe someone will come in.

    On a more positive note this deadline day won’t be spent nervously hoping that one of our best players gets flogged at the last minute so that he who can’t be named can expand his tat empire.

    Adam_92,
    I think we’ve established even the best informed journo’s rely on an element of guess work, the only people knowing fine details like payment of installments are the lawyers and negotiators, are they really going to leak that kind of information at this stage of a deal.

    I do wish the press would Foxtrot Oscar with their ‘Done Deal’ claims mind. I don’t mind speculation or rumour too much, but when they claim its not ‘if’ but ‘when’ it starts to get on my proverbials.

    Chronic putting a dampness on Bruno…

    ‘…..This morning’s edition of L’Équipe suggested that Newcastle were still “holding the rope to conclude the deal in the coming days”.

    ‘But notably, Juventus and Arsenal are still thought to be interested in the defensive midfielder and suggestions he could wait until June would put them back in the race.’

    G – there’s also semantics of language and people misinterpreting it. SSN reported that OL and Newcastle had reached an “agreement” for Guimaraes. This doesn’t mean the formal offer has been officially accepted, doesn’t mean personal terms or medical are sorted, and certainly doesn’t mean the deal is done. BUT, others can then run with that and claim the deal is done and fans get excited, report the fake/false news and then get let down late.

    In my opinion, there’s likely a verbal agreement for the ballpark fee between OL and Newcastle but there are details to work out. Who leaked the news though, I really don’t know…it’s frustrating when it happens.

    You have one outlet reporting Lingard is on then moments later another reporting it’s off, they can’t both be right.

    As I’ve said, I think Man U would be unbelievably foolish to cost themselves around £10M to have Lingard playing in the U23’s. It doesn’t matter how rich they are that would be seriously poor business acumen.

    Bit of a press flurry yesterday about a new potential player – you would assume due to the number of news outlets reporting the same thing that .Guimaraes was on the verge of becoming a Toon player – that there must be some mileage in it.

    Used to think Rashford was a top man – recently photo’s of him in the middle east with Lingard in a nightclub has put me off a bit. Rashford is wearing a diamond necklace that would do the Queen proud – looked a right knacker. Lingard was with him.
    Please -no to Lingard

    Jail – But it also wouldn’t surprise me if Man Utd leave it until TDD to see if we’re desperate to sign Lingard or if another club comes in. No reason for them to complete the deal early.

    Man Yankees are a despicable club.
    They want £15m according to some as a loan fee for Lingard, probably to offset the lost shirt sales revenue when Huffy Ronaldo walks away from them.

    Mund – Would just be interesting if a native French speaker could tell us what that tweet actually means. The word “negotiate” could be out of context.

    None of it really matters to be fair…we’re all just speculating over random information and trying to work out what it means…

    So we’re all trying to find the truth in there somewhere…mind you, not sure that really matters either as there’s bugger all we can do about it…

    I’ll see myself out…

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Lingard has asked Man U to delay so it doesn’t look like he’s holding out on us ala Ryan Fraser, just in case he does come in. Not going to look good on him if it’s common knowledge that he kept us waiting in the hope that a better offer came in.

    I think it’s on, probably very minor details to sort out. I think OL’s history of this sort of stuff tells me more than a news article does tbh regardless of the native language.

    Protecting share prices, but also trying to encourage a bidding war as well.

    Raj,

    I don’t think the majority of us would care tbh, as long as he does the business in a toon shirt.

    What will be interesting will be if West Ham do make an approach, as I’d like to see what kind of loan fee/transfer fee they ask them for compared to what has been reported during our interest in him.

    Tyran21 – reading between the lines, that make perfect sense anyway. The deal might be informally agreed but they are now negotiating on the finer details. Not done until it’s actually done but that’s obviously a very good sign.

    Tyran,

    Aye, we’ve apparently offered 8m per year for 5 years. They don’t want that and I don’t particularly blame them either as it doesn’t exactly leave them with suitable cash reserves to go and buy a replacement.

    dazzler,
    I honestly don’t see where he fits in to that West Ham side anymore, they’re well over stocked there and it’s a striker they need as Antonio looks paggered due to the amount of games he’s played, which isn’t really that many given he’s been rested in the EL.

    Seems more like Man Utd wanted an absurd amount of relegation survival fees, after seeing Newcastle’s performance at Leeds. Newcastle likely to survive, so they are exploiting. Of course, as reported.
