Journalist States Pursuit Of Ekitike Is Not Over But Other Targets Now In Play



Luke Edwards has taken to Twitter in the wake of a report that Newcastle have moved on from Ekitike. Edwards believes there is still some lingering hope an agreement can be reached but for now, other options are being looked at.

The obstacle appears to be solely down to Ekitike’s agents. 90min’s Graeme Bailey reported this morning that the striker’s representatives are seeking excessive fees. He claimed Newcastle have walked away but are willing to return should they soften their demands.

There isn’t much more in these recent updates from Edwards’ report earlier in the week. The move has been stalled by Ekitike’s agents, who are looking to cash in on the transfer of their client. They’ve not have much success with Newcastle so they are shopping him around Europe.

Ekitike appears keen to make the jump to Tyneside. If nothing develops in the next few weeks from other clubs, it will put pressure on his agents to return to Newcastle and reach an agreement.

On a brighter note, here is a smiling Nick Pope arriving for his medical at Newcastle.

Who Do You Think Will Be Newcastle's First Choice Goalkeeper Next Season?

    “FFP can’t and won’t do a thing. It’s been made a mockery of over the years and considering we can spend a shit load before it even effects us, there is actually no point in having the rule”

    Must have been a different Mund said that, which fookin one though is a whole new can of worms 😀

    If Conte thinks he can make ASM into a top player by increasing his work rate he’s got another thing coming! Like HBA he’s a show pony! Sell him on !!

    I do find it strange how someone on here has a back log of posts he remembers even going back 10 years… it is rather strange behaviour…

    Until someone official actually states we have walked away from Ekitike then it’s all BS click bait nonsense…

    But if there is an element of truth I can’t see us sticking around for long

    It’s strange how someone claims they don’t know how to find them unless it suits them. Then “someone else” finds them for him 😀

    Peeps,
    For the record I’m probably the least computer literal person on here, not my thing, although I did manage to make my JfA avatar of which I was immensely proud. You do not need to be a rocket surgeon or brain scientist to find old posts. You do not need to have a backlog or a an app that stores them, you do not have to be a computer genius. You simply need to put the key words of a post ie FFP doesn’t affect us name of person nufcblog.com if someone has been blathering on about it enough the post should appear.
    Simples.

    Mund,
    You’ve blathered on about FFP for months now and how it is toothless it is and how it won’t affect our spending. It is not difficult to find a post that contains said blathering.

    Mund-
    Is RaJ the former Jail for Ashley ?
    It’s just that he has the same scatter brain approach to posting on a football blog as JFA.
    I initially thought the blog was rid of him only to find it seems that he had regressed still further.
    If it’s any consolation to you I also find his persona thoroughly irritating somewhat like swatting a persistent fly at a barbecue.
    On a more favourable note it was good to see that Mr Tuff is still going strong and that he has not lost his sense of humour. I have much respect for Mr Tuff and my fleeting time on here after so many years gives me the opportunity to say so.
    Keep the Faith.

    Has the definition of “fleeting” changed and nobody told me because I could have swore that space cadet was posting as Ian Toon/Pushy Pardew/Carl Toon for years and utterly blighted the blog with his narcissistic ramblings.

    Jail

    Be careful of betting with dogs. The total appearances don’t seem to include being substituted. There’s 5 subs allowed next season so, if we use them all in a game, there’s a 50% chance of him being substituted in the game.

    The dog could be a hustler. 😀 😀 😀

    This 8 ball is just as likely to guess what is happening with Ekitike.

    I asked if we’re signing him and it said ‘Don’t count on it’ which to be honest, I’m going to believe as it probably has a better chance of being right.

    Newcastle United, Real Madrid, PSG and Chelsea are all interested in securing the services of Liverpool’s former sporting director Michael Edwards.

    However, he is keen to take a break away from football after a ten-year stay with the Reds.

    Thank you Ian Toon for your kind words – but you need to be careful when talking about humour on here. There are a few who do not do humour on here and will go into a screaming hissy fit if they do not get the jokes.

    There was some knacker the other day that reacted to one of Kets dafty posts he later retracted his later post -Probably because Kets was laughing his c**k off at him.

    Beware though there are dodgy characters on here awaiting to set their traps.

    Viva humour and quality gags

    Down with “Les Miserables” and “Linekers”.

    Must say it’s quiet calm with the news… so not much to say.

    Well, if it can interest someone, the Botola ( first division moroccan championship ) will come to an end soon with 3 or 4 games remaining for each team ( and the Mouloudia Oujda got a tremendous game to play tonight against a direct rival in the relegation battle…).

    For the title, the Wydad Casablanca is 6 points ahead of his archrival of Raja Casblanca ( one of the craziest derby in the world ) with 3 games remaining for each.

    Do you still have conversations with yourself or have you finally decided that catfishing yourself on a football blog was absolutely mental?
