Multiple Reports That Newcastle Have Agreed Terms With England Goalkeeper



There are multiple reports today that Aaron Ramsdale has agreed to join Newcastle United in the summer.

Ever since Arsenal signed David Raya on loan from Brentford, on loan last summer, Ramsdale’s time has been limited between the posts for the Gunners.

After being the regular Arsenal goalkeeper after signing on from Sheffield United three years ago, he has played only 11 games in Arsenal’s packed schedule this season.

The player cost Arsenal £30M and was previously coached by Eddie Howe for a short period at Bournemouth.

The England goalkeeper (4 full caps) has been heavily linked with a move to St James’ Park this season.

The initial report on this came from  Sky Sports News journalist James Green, who had this to say about the deal while speaking on Highbury Squad:

“I understand and I found out directly from the player’s agent that one of our players is off to Newcastle and a deal has been agreed,”

“It’s my understanding that Aaron Ramsdale has agreed to join Newcastle in the summer.”

“That’s come direct through speaking to somebody I’m very close with who is close with his agent and he says it’s done.”

“I don’t think it will come as a surprise to many Arsenal fans if I’m being honest.”

“I think the writing was on the wall, it was going to happen, he can’t sit there and be a backup goalkeeper he was too good for that.”

“He was always going to go on to pastures new and I saw a few reports, a few other journalists talking about a backup to Raya this week and what goalkeepers might come in.”

“The likes of Jason Steele at Brighton were mentioned and I think he’d actually be a very good number two.”

“The deal (to Newcastle) is happening.”

Ramsdale signed a new contract with the Gunners last summer after earning a place in the PFA Team of the Year for the previous season, but this season has turned everything upside down with the goalkeeper’s ambitions not being met.

Newcastle will need a new number two for next season since Loris Karius wants to move to the Italian League to be closer to his family.

And Martin Dubravka also has itchy feet and the Saudi League have shown interest in acquiring the Slovakian International this summer.

Dubravka’s contract expires next summer so we may even be able to get a transfer fee for him.

The news is that we will pay £15M for Ramsdale and if that is accurate that’s a good deal for Newcastle, especially from Arsenal.

Dubravka has played 163 games for Newcastle since signing for us back in 2018 on a loan deal initially for €500K from Sparta Prague, with an option to sign in the summer for €4.5M  which Newcastle took up.

How Will Newcastle Fare At Brentford On Sunday?

    Saratoga, I sat in Cloughies car with him at Forest years ago. Lovely man, a true legend of the game.

    At 39, looking for something to correct in your post, a comma perhaps.

    Nope, perfect, totally agree.

    Hello from sunny Spain, it’s taken from Wednesday early morning until lunch time today to get to our campsite. The ferry crossing was a bit rough so spent the whole time in the cabin.
    Had a few overnight stops on the way down.
    Hope to watch the match somewhere, although it’s finding a place showing Newcastle.
    Will Ed’s blog still be going through the transfer season?

    I suspect that blog additional payment that Ed made is close to running out.
    At the risk of sounding like a gloom monger I think we”ll be lucky to get to the start of the new season. Hopefully Ed will give us a heads up, near when it has to close. 🙁

    Evening Regan lad, i`ve watched all those Clough videos in the past, but had to watch that one again 😀 The man was simply legendary, they broke the mold when they made Cloughie mate, as the saying goes we will never see his like again.

    Cloughie will undoubtedly go down as one of the all time great managers, but if you watch a lot of those old documentaries from the past, it`s well recognized his old wingman Peter Taylor was very influential in all his success but got very little credit, and Cloughie was never the same when they parted ways mate, i would go as far as saying their fallout really effected Cloughie externally even outside football mate.

    Regan@44 …true…but built out of a little fear and mostly respect?….today’s £100th p week may not have the same feeling….for years footballers were robbed of a decent living.. especially at NUFC…..privately owned by board members who were… solicitors…developers etc…I’ve heard tales of the likes of Sugget.. who was working on the buildings after he finished his stint with NUFC and asked the club for some socks because the the sites were so cold ….told to f–k off.. .dismal treatment…..dark days hopefully never to return to ANY club..,….that’s my rant
