Believable7 Unbelievable11

How is a secret then

Agree5 Disagree2

Well it was a secret before l,equipe found out

Agree0 Disagree3

Who's the midfielder if you know who the secret defender is

Agree0 Disagree2

The rumour about m'bia is from back in 2009 when joe kinnear was manager, whoever started this rumour failed to readthe post fully, the heading says january 2012 but the article says jan 2009

Agree1 Disagree1

Rhys Williams 3.5m fee agreed

Believable11 Unbelievable9

Source?

Agree3 Disagree0

We have agreed a fee with sochaux for ryad boudebouz

Agree3 Disagree8

This isn't even reported on Twitter...which has all dodgy rumours. Therefore I highly doubt this is true. It would be reported on SSN, Twitter, TalkSport etc etc. However there is no sign of it whatsoever

Agree4 Disagree1

Oh Ive just seen it on twitter, source Peter holdsworthe football agent twitter. Only personal terms to be discussed, fee agreed 3.5m

Agree2 Disagree0

Not yet mate haha, doubt very much this deal has been has been agreed just yet

MAGatron

Agree0 Disagree0

Where'd you get the boudebouz rumour from?

Agree2 Disagree0

Deal done...Agent on twitter

Agree1 Disagree2

Sochaux chairman has told french media

Agree0 Disagree1

Fee is reported to be about 6.5m

Agree0 Disagree2

Where's the Boudebouz link? And is the Williams guy on twitter really his agent?

Agree0 Disagree0

Do you have any links about the boudebouz rumour? would be amazing if he came. would probably signal the end of tiote but, even though i wouldn't want to lose him, it'd put a more attacking emphasis on our game on top of more neat deck play...

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would Boudebouz arriving mean the end of tiote? boudebouz is a winger. Tiote is a central midfielder. Completely different styles of players.

No deal is to be done regarding Ba this window, dont even contemplate it, im told that Cisse only came in the first place to play alongside him. . . Just look forward to seeing him bang in a few more goals and worry about him leaving in the summer because the quote i got said; "The situation with Ba? Well there aint no situation at this possible time, no deal is to be done and even if an offer over his supposed release clause im almost 100% sure that he would turn it down, he is happy here and wishes to create one of the premier leages most frightening strike forces with Cisse" got it this morning from an anonymous representative of Ba. . dont know what he meant by supposed and other than harry shouting his mouth off i aint heard anything else about it so it could just be him talking bull. . which is a smart strategy considering he wants to bring in a new striker himself and i aint heard anything from the tottenham camp about then even considering a move for Ba. . so hope that clears up everyones worries, it made me feel alot better

Believable9 Unbelievable1

Just like to correct something i wrote there, not a representative of Ba but a representative of Newcastle, ha sorry about that lads

MAGatron {Ed017's Note - tut,tut. More effort needed!lol)

Agree1 Disagree1

Just got a bit worked up there, speed typing and all ha

Agree0 Disagree0

Heard from an unreliable source that Daglish has offered 80 million plus Andy Carrol for Ba abd Cisse {Ed017's Note - sounds very unreliable)

Nufc.com reporting that Demba Ba's release clause can only be activated in the summer. If this is true surely Newcastle must offer him an improved contract when he returns from ACON without the release clause. Do you know anything about this Ed?? {Ed001's Note - I don't have any info at all on the release clause, it is all speculation from the media.}

Believable4 Unbelievable0

If there was a realease clause surely someone would already have being in for him, because as soon as the games start there is no way he is coming back for a medical.

Agree3 Disagree1

It's very complicated with him being away. with cisse he flew in and out on the same day. With Ba, the medical will be much more thorough and there seems to be "insurance" thing that is being talked about. I supppose it's easy to get insurance when there is no transfer fee involved. finding an insurance company to insure Ba for a 10m fee and accept his knee doesn't pose a great risk would be very hard. such a deal is complicated and would need more time than would be allowed by the Senegal FA. This will be interesting in the summer.

Just heard that we are focusing on a cb, a fella called rhys williams, supposedly to be done within the next 7 days, can honestly say i've never heard of him, also im told that we aint signing anyone else just a different possible loan move if this williams deal breaks down


MAGatron

Believable4 Unbelievable2

Think it could be possible, doesnt seem like a big name, surely Pardew will be looking at a cover CB incase Williamson or Coloccini drop out, dont think he will be looking for someone better. But who knows, after today anything is possible

Agree1 Disagree0

Plays for boro is an asuie international has 9 caps to his name is only 23 can play as centre back are rb back known to play in the midfield at times two has had a canny season and looks like the laf has talent to
marknufc

Agree3 Disagree3

Been said we want a young centre back just to fill in to start with also we have kadar at the club would like to see this lad in the first team at some point seen him 6 times in reserves matches nd he a talent lad
marknufc

Agree1 Disagree0

Williams is an absolute beast, seen Hume play for Socceroos mostly as a defensive midfielder solid as a rock

Agree1 Disagree0

Liverpool and bolton wanted him over the summer so he must be good enough for the premier league so i take him

Agree1 Disagree0

Might be ok if he plays for boro as they have a pretty decent youth academy down there...

Agree1 Disagree0

Yea he seems canny enough, seen a few clips of him there now like, Im worried about the cost though, as an international player and being only 23 boro will demand around the 5m mark, im told the offer thats going to be sent either tomorrow or the day after will be around 3.5m with add ons after a certain number of games... all im told on this deal. . hope it goes through like
