Newcastle Keeping Tabs On Left-Back In Contract Stalemate



Newcastle are in the market for a new left-back this summer. The club have set the bar high with interest in Arsenal’s Kieran Tierney and Inter Milan’s Federico Dimarco, two marauding left-backs who can add some more excitement to the left flank.

Either would cost significant funds as they are both on contracts that run until 2026. Newcastle may have a backup plan with 90min reporting of an interest in Bournemouth’s Jordan Zemura, who is out of contract this summer.

Zemura seems destined to leave Bournemouth as negotiations on a new deal have been anything but smooth. The Cherries triggered a yearlong extension last season to keep him around for their return to the Premier League.

The 23-year-old has impressed in his first season in the Premier League. While he doesn’t have the attacking prowess of Tierney or Dimarco, he has held his own and will only improve as he gains experience.

Bournemouth boss Gary O’Neil dropped the left-back for their 1-0 win over Liverpool last weekend. It appears that his contract situation facilitated the decision. He still has 22 appearances this term.

Zemura was brought to the Vitality Stadium by Howe in the summer of 2019 as a free agent from Charlton. The report suggests that West Ham are the Zimbabwe international’s main suitors. Newcastle’s interest appears to be peripheral at the moment as their top targets remain in play.

    Looks like Saints already sold out tickets away to Toon. Bugger. Did not even go on general sale to a member.

    Premier League announce kit changes that will affect every single side next season.

    With, hopefully, new sponsors for us next season there will be several changes to the 23/24 strip design.

    Women demanding equal prize money from the FA for the women’s FA cup.
    That is ridiculous.
    https://www.theguardian.com/football/2023/mar/14/lewes-women-call-for-equal-fa-cup-prize-money-to-end-shocking-disparity
    The disparity is not shocking as the article suggests.
    The men’s game generates more income therefore more prize money.
    This is an example of entitlement that is rife in the women’s game.
    Why don’t the winners of the FA trophy get the same as the FA cup winners?

    Magic – might have already missed you but I’ve got my hotel sorted in Newcastle for Friday to Monday covering the Saints game. Likely I’d come up with the missus and we’d explore Newcastle and the surrounding area a bit. But I’d probably be free for a few drinks on Saturday evening and obviously free to meet up for a beer or two before the game and whatever comes afterwards too.

    All hinging on me getting a ticket but I’m doing what I can.

    Zemura does look a good prospect looks a good attacking fullback but is he the level we need or can we get better?

    Also what happened to that young left back who played in pre season? He looked good but has never had a sniff

    I finally caught up and missed the bus..

    I have hunch and hope some of our near misses will start going in again. Ok think the lads have the cup behind them, more days between games right now, the link up play is back on the uptick and Forest are not playing well. They have a fee injuries especially in the front and after watching Shelvey in a lot of the last game it seems not much has changed. Seemed a bit slow and his attempts at “special” passes were numerous and most never found thier intended target. I think with Gordan and Big Joe still out we will see the same lineup with maybe Miggy back in as I think he just needed the break. Either way hoping to see ay least 2-3 goals fall in the first half and get a solid win and go into the break on a real high note.

    Fair play to you mate as your really pulling out all the stops to be there, will you still be traveling up to the Toon with your partner if your not successful in obtaining tickets mate?

    Magic – probably not mate. It’s a long way to go and a lot of money to spend to be there and not get to watch the football match. I’m definitely relying on someone helping me get a ticket.

    Magic – it’s a bank holiday in the UK on Monday so I’ll be staying Sunday night too so I can have a few drinks after the game. Will be up for a few drinks on Friday or Saturday evening with you though but probably not dinner if I’m with the missus. Would probably go out for dinner with her and then join you later. She’s not much of a drinker so doesn’t really go out to bars often.

    Took an hour to get onto the ticket site today (10,000 in the queue) to see if as a ST holder I could get another ticket for one of our lads back home for the ManU game.
    Site is a walking disaster, no dropdown menu, poor allocation process, selected items not put in basket (even though at right price etc).
    Then see that ST allocation is sold our but club members can apply tomorrow which suggests each release is on a limited allocation basis ?
    Clube needs to get this sorted, it’s very amateurish.

    We would not have enough room to also fit Jessica Rabbit in the apartment to be honest mate, but your very welcome at no extra cost what’s so ever Peter.

    Very humbling.
    Maybe our affluent owners can contribute to ensure some sort of legacy is maintained ? Albeit Christian Atsu isn’t there to assist.
    He’s been given a State Funeral in Ghana.

    No, today it was ST holders and members, next week is public sale where they keep a handful of tickets to satisfy PL rules. I got 11K number today and they were all gone.
