Newcastle Launch Improved Bid For Defender – Report



Newcastle have launched a second bid for Brighton’s Dan Burn this morning. The first bid believed to be in the £7-8m range was rejected by Albion earlier in the week.

The Mail, as well as The Chronicle’s Lee Ryder, are reporting of the improved bid. This latest offer is reportedly for £10m.

The Blyth-born defender has become Newcastle’s top defensive target as moves for Sevilla’s Diego Carlos and Lille’s Sven Botman ended in defeat. Burn would provide another left-footed option for Eddie Howe at the back.

The center-back is entering the final 18-months of his contract and will reach the transitional age of 30 in May. This is an excellent offer for the 6’7″ defender who joined Brighton from Wigan in 2018 for a fee just north of £3m.

Newcastle hope to add at least one center-back and another attacker before the window slams shut on Monday. Arsenal’s Eddie Nketiah was named by The Telegraph’s Luke Edwards as the most likely attacking addition.

The 22-year-old striker is out of contract at the end of the season. Edwards believes he has been a target from early in the window with Newcastle making their final push this week.

As things stand, it appears unlikely that a deal for Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard can be reached. However, there is always a chance Newcastle go back in for the 29-year-old by deadline day.

The barrier remains Man U’s insistence of including a £12m survival bonus. This bonus would bring Newcastle’s total cost for a four-month loan into the £15-16m range. If The Red Devils can agree to lessen that amount, a deal could theoretically be reached.

A similar clause is reportedly part of the deal to bring Bruno Guimaraes to Tyneside. The midfielder should be announced imminently after undergoing medical checks in Brazil on Friday.

    Rooney’s on a hundred grand a week which is paid 32RED not by the club , he’s guaranteed his wages regardless what happens with the club , dont think he would be there if it wasnt for the amount of money he earns , but that just my opinion…

    I think Rooney is also reflecting on what happened to Lamps when he went back to his boyhood club too early. He’s not as daft as sometimes portrayed.

    Think the winter training camp in Saudi Arabia was/is a good idea to get everybody on the same page so to speak. Plus the warm weather will help those with minor injuries/strains to get back to full fitness quicker.

    Should improve things/understandings between players.
    “Living” with one another must increase play even by a small amount.

    So all in all good stuff – plus Howe can better establish what each player can do/achieve.

    Lampard do ok with a few academy products at Chelsea. But he exiled there best defender in Tony Rudiger. He must be a pig headed bloke. Bad appointment for Everton. They will suffer.

    Apparently bakker has been told of newcastle interest,but until newcastle and leverkusen agree a fee he’s concentrating on Leverkusen,if a fee is agreed he’d willing to talk about a move….if true,he seems a canny level headed lad … apparently we’ve offered 12m euro…..not sure what to believe as we had apparently agreed everything,and was all dependant on them getting cover at left back?

    Quite a few excuses being made as to why the Bruno deal hasn`t been announced, maybe the real reason is because the deal hasn`t been concluded, or maybe there is a hitch.
    Some Toon fans always ignore the negative possibilities of what could be actually happening behind the scenes and instead prefer to think everything is all fine and dandy, which is great, but when a medical has taken place 24 hours previous , with apparently all aspects of the deal being agreed and no problems arisen, then i would of expected an announcement before now.
    Maybe the club are waiting until Monday to announce Bruno, along with one or two others, who knows, but until it it announced as a done deal i will feel a tad anxious, especially now other clubs are sniffing around the player.

    Apparently the deal for Reims striker not “dead”, better option than the Arsenal guy but would take either tbh. 🙂

    Happy to see Everton suffer. He can’t do worse than Benitez though. Jeez there was a lot of chest pumping on here when he did well initially.

    Ignore the negative possibilities? Why would you want to consider the negative? Nothing implies that there is anything wrong but let’s jump on the negative and assume there is and get all down about it.

    Tell me what is the point in thinking such a way?

    Usual stuff in press, claim and counter claim (all for clicks)

    Bakker deal is dead, he doesn’t want to come.

    Bakker will come if deal can be done between clubs.

    Both can’t be true, who you meant to believe? Wish the press would learn to just print truth and not total speculation. I’m bloody sick of the “we’ve heard that”, “it’s been reported that”, “sources claim that” total bloody bullshit.

    Thankfully we’ll know the truth by midnight Monday! 😀

    Lampard comes across as reasonable, knowledgeable and likeable when I’ve heard him speak. The turnaround at Chelsea when Tuchel arrived was dramatic and instant. Something must have gone very wrong towards the end of Lampard’s tenure.

    But when a good one got away the back up was usually not up to it

    Mund,

    Life isn`t always a bed of roses mate, especially following this club.
    We have fantastic new owners, a bright future yes, but that does not mean that everything they do will turn to gold, .
    This Bruno deal hasn`t been concluded until it is official imo, the sooner it is announced the better.
    You are the eternal optimist, good on ya Mund, i am a bit more balanced and can be sceptical when things don`t appear to be as clear as night and day.
    I bet there are quite a few fans are wondering wtf is going on with this deal, and i am one of them.

    Wor B,
    He was good mates with Jose and maybe he held grudges with those that forced him out, although that didn’t seem to affect his first season. Maybe because he bought all those new players he felt obliged to play them and Tuchel didn’t, Werner and Ziyech didn’t feature much after Tuchel arrived.

    It’ll be interesting to see how long Rooney’s loyalty lasts when Ashley takes control of Derby County.

    Bruceyboy’ll be watching with interest and dreaming of the holy trinity of himself, Ashley and Charmless.

    Tom

    And living among Derby County fans, I’d imagine you thought you’d be spared any more of Ashley.

    WorB – I think he fell out with most of his veteran players as he played all the younger ones. One example, he had Rudiger on the bench routinely. Tuchel comes in and Rudiger starts every game since and Chelsea improve dramatically. Not the only reason but one of them.

    I can appreciate people think and act differently as we do on this. I just don’t think anyone should worry about anything that is out of our control. Always keep your beak dry and even tho I’m a positive lad and always look that way, I still keep myself balanced.

    Bruno will sign over the next 24/72hrs. Just stay calm and keep the faith with these brilliant new owners.

    Be interesting to see how he does at Everton, they are surely better than their current position.
    Good to see a new breed of British managers displacing the dinosaurs at present, perhaps they will eventually displace Pep, Tuchel and Klopp?

    I think the Guimares deal will go through but just wish it was announced> Not only will it calm us down but the sooner it is confirmed the longer we’ll have to convince others in this window to come, thinking we’re on the right track.

    Considering all possibilities is viewing a situation in the round – much like a SWOT analysis which considers opportunities as well as threats attached to particular situations.

    Be optimistic yes, but being realistic and considering the possibility of failure, a realist won’t be surprised if things don’t happen as hoped. Disappointed yes, surprised no.

    Where does your info come from,that Rooney is being paid, from an outside source?
    Is that even allowed under ffp?
    Derby are already facing legal challenges from other EFL clubs due to their “creative accounting” (amortization irregularities,alledgedly).

    I agree that an announcement of some description saying that the signings complete subject to whatever would go some way towards easing anxieties. It could also and encourage other targets to think favourably about moving to NUFC
