Newcastle Remain Calm On Botman And Ekitike

Newcastle are not panicking over delays in the transfer market just yet according to local reports. Both Hugo Ekitike and Sven Botman remain priority targets despite unfortunate hold-ups in getting the players in.

It’s hard to gauge what exactly is causing issues as reports have been conflicting. Some outlets claim the duo are keen while others suggest the players are the ones holding up the moves.

The Chronicle has revealed that Newcastle are being flooded with offers for alternatives to Sven Botman. They believe the 22-year-old is still mulling over a move to Tyneside but that an agreement with Lille has been reached.

The Northern Echo is reporting that Hugo Ekitike is seeking assurances that he will get enough playing time before committing to a move to Newcastle. Other reports have suggested his representatives are still shopping him around Europe with PSG and Dortmund on alert.

Scott Wilson also touches on the situation with Botman. He backs the Chronicle’s report that an agreement has been reached with Lille as the player, who is currently on holiday, contemplates his future.

Wilson also is reporting that Manchester United have offered center-back Eric Bailly. The defender made just 7 appearances at Old Trafford last season and is not in new manager Erik ten Hag’s plans.

Bailly turned 28 in April and has two years left on his contract, in which he brings in £80k per week. The report doesn’t say whether Newcastle would be interested in bringing him in. For the time being, Botman is where the focus remains.

    I wonder what’s happened to the Ashley/Staveley court case over those signs.

    Nearly a year since Ashley left and as we all suspected he’s still got his tentacles hanging in all over the place. Can you imagine if he’d sold to a Kenyon type, those signs would still be up.

    I hope some fans don’t buy them from him but if they’re £15 cheaper, I’d rather buy from DH Gate and see the club get fook all than buy from him.

    I hope it’s not too long before we win something, It’s been a long wait since 1969 I’m knocking on at 78 so don’t want to miss the big bang when we hit overdrive! At this stage I’m not too bothered about the Champions League!

    I’m hoping somewhere around 5th 6th or 7th for next season but it depends on who we get coming in……

    Ah well I can dream can I not?

    Colback won’t be starting for Forest. They’ll sign a natural left back.
