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.

    To the Dr.
    on the last afternoon of this season, and who knows what’s to come, I’d like to say, your fortitude in the face of shocking adversity has been inspiring for all the years you have been fighting your horrible disease.
    You completely deserve any admiration and gratitude for resolutely forging on, and so I’d like to say, thank you for “not going gently into that good night, and raging against the dying of the light”.

    Dylan Thomas’s words make for an apt offering.
