Have heard from a friend in Istanbul that there were Newcastle scouts at Galatasaray's game against Gaziantepspor.

I have no idea who they were watching, but I can only hope that it was Semih Kaya, one of the best up and coming CB's in Europe and has had Van Persie and Cristiano Ronaldo in his back pocket in games for Turkey against Holland & Portugal respectively.

Or it could be Burak Yilmaz the goal machine, although he is nearly 28.

Really how much is he worth?
If 5m or cheaper that would look very good. Get Debuchy for 6m. Hooper for 5m
That is 16m.
Then Douglas, Ince for free in summer

Agree1 Disagree3

Hooper will cost a lot more than 5 mil

Agree6 Disagree1

If Jelavic costed 5.5m. Jelavic had a longer contract i think Hooper's runs out in the summer or next

Agree2 Disagree1

Celtic have already said they want 15 mil for hooper

Agree4 Disagree1

Hooper's contract runs out in the summer because he wants 25k/week which celtic won't pay so they'll sell him for whatever they can get or he'll leave on a free in the summer

Agree1 Disagree1

Cheikhou kouyate would be a good buy fast strong young and would cost about 5m at most

Agree1 Disagree0

Hooper has about a year or 2 left on his contract so the fee would probably be between 5 and 10m {Ed007's Note - 8 million is the fee Celtic are looking for.}

Agree0 Disagree1

8m not bad could be better could be worse

Agree1 Disagree1

Hooper isn't anywhere near being worth 8 million. I know he's scored goals in Scotland but Barry Ferguson looked good up there and Samaras!

Scunthorpe sold him for 160k to Celtic cos he not good enough for English football. Scores goals up there cos of standard of the league!

8 million would be better spent on our shambles of a defence! {Ed007's Note - Celtic paid 2.4 million for Hooper PLUS Scunthorpe are due another 250k after Celtic reached the last 16 of the Champions League. He has also scored 7 goals in 16 apps in Europe, 4 of them in this season's CL.}

Agree1 Disagree0

A doubt that a good finish is a good finish he will always get chances, he proved against Barca. I hate Celtic, I am Rangers fan as well as Newcastle

Agree1 Disagree0

Barry Ferguson at his prime was a sensational player there is no doubt about that and you would've said the same about jelavic but look how decent a signing hes turned out to be.

Agree0 Disagree0

Just been told Ba to Liverpool is complete with us having first chance to sign Carroll in the summer.

Believable5 Unbelievable16

Would rather have big Andy back so it's good news!

Agree7 Disagree10

No way would carroll want to play championship football next season.

Agree9 Disagree3

Would rather someone like remy than swapping one big lumbering forward for another who can't score

Agree9 Disagree2

So you want a guy who has scored 70% of our goals this season out in favor of a guy who hasn't scored any?

i understand some fans' discontents with Ba, but come on, AC IS a championship quality goalscorer

Agree7 Disagree7

A sheep for a donkey

Agree4 Disagree3

Remy would at least compliment the FWD line with a bit of pace and flair, two big lads just doesnt seem to work no matter how much we want it to. he could play with either ba or cisse!

About time Jonas got dropped, give Marveaux a run of games and lets see what he can do. He seems very good from what little weve seen of him so far.

Believable14 Unbelievable8

Marveaux seems quite creative but someone should have a word in his ear and tell him to never shoot on goal unless he is practically stood with the goal gaping, the guy cannot shoot to save himself.
