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.

    I’m not sure you read the room correctly regarding your match day comments about the team selection.

    There is an opportunity to let everyone know your thoughts about the team selection before Eddie Howe announces his; it gives everyone an opportunity to understand where folk are coming from, especially when they comment after the event.

    Just 18 or so short hours before Eddie’s Bingo closes for the last time this season. https://www.nufcblog.com/2023/06/22/full-agreement-reached-for-sandro-tonali-transfer-to-newcastle-medical-tomorrow/comment-page-24/#comment-3014797

    You should try it; it’s good fun for lots of posters; there are some “happy” and also some “not so happy” clappers amongst them. 😉

    Cartoon.
    Canny thanks.
    Hope Spain’s great, crossing apart.
    Have a wonderful family party.

    I remember years ago coming back on the Rotterdam to Hull route.
    Hit a Force 9 or something like that. We spent 2 and a half days in the North Sea when it was about a 6hour normal crossing. The ship wasn’t allowed to attempt to dock anywhere as too dangerous but it was alright to sail round in a circle like it was in the Bermuda Triangle?

    The 100 Glasgow wivies on a bus holiday not amused. It was like a scene from Titantic but with the Krankies off their heids on cheap lager. Not a pretty sight.

    Made National TV when the ship came back up the Tees to some industrial dock as nowhere else was able to handle the ship due to storm damage. That was like the TV Series Benidorm but with Smoggies.
    One poor lad with us missed his mother in laws funeral. His wife didn’t believe his story and was giving him grief for being on the piss but had to change her view when she saw him on deck steaming up the Tees.

    Epic.

    Ramsdale would simply be swapping Raya for Pope, and with it no more guarantee of first team football you’d imagine. I like him, and even more so to have both him and Pope, but I’m struggling to believe it.

    We need Joelinton in from the start v Brentford. We’ve badly missed him unsettling and rattling opponents in midfield.

    Go 4231 Eddie, with Joel next to Bruno. We can put out a really strong 11 and go for it, while still protecting the defence, and still have good options off the bench.

    …………………. Pope.
    Trippier……Schar……Burn…….Hall.
    …………….Bruno……..Joel.
    Gordon…………..Isak………….Barnes.
    …………………..Wilson.

    Krafth
    Sean
    Anderson
    Murphy
    Miggy

    Decent, decent, decent.

    I watched a video by Craig Hope from a few days ago. He was bemoaning the fact that NUFC had lost their bottle this season, especially away from home. He came out in support of Eddie Howe but it was not a convincing point of view as I saw it. Jail for Ashley is fond of saying if you think Howe should be replaced you should have the courage of your convictions to say it. I’ll say it. To go to the next level we need a more astute manager.
