A strong rumour in the grapewine that's now connecting us to De Jong. We've been allowed to speak to De Jong and terms are supposedly agreed, still working to establish a proper fee with FC Twente.
No direct source i'm afraid, just texts and twitter through various connections connections ;)

Ed.. heard anything about us making a move for Junior Hoilett in Jan? {Ed007's Note - Sorry no.}

Believable5 Unbelievable10

Better than obertan

Agree0 Disagree0

Thought he was amazing tonight

Agree0 Disagree0

Amazing!! Sure hope that was sarcasm!! He's not the sort of player to toon need, a cadanian lua lua..

Agree0 Disagree0

Canadian Lua Lua???? Are you high ?? quality young player !

Agree0 Disagree0

Really and what makes him so good.. His age??? doesn't pass, doesn't hit target doesn't score goals!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Are you serious? " doesn't score goals". Who scored against us in the 3-1 win?
How many has Obertan scored? Or assisted? Think you'll find Hoilett has scored and got more assists.

Agree0 Disagree0

Give obertan a chance, you seem to forget that he is only 22.. watch him
Bag a couple tonight...

Agree0 Disagree0

Hoilett is 21, younger, already better and has potential with the added bonus that he only has 6 months left on his contract. Perfect deal imo

Agree0 Disagree0

Anyone who cant see hoiletts skill is ignorant or a rugby fan cuz he'd be rubbish in a scrum but give the lad a football and a fullback to beat.....jobs a gooden
get him singed can play on either wing or the ben arfa role, low wages , relativly low fee, better than obertan (more confident /direct/ smart/ cool headed) everything oba is not!
not meaning to slag oba too much but he doesnt belive in himself how the heck are we supposed to

hearing that chelsea, spurs and liverpool are preparing bids for a nufc player in january but not tiote or colo......its for krul who has also been attracting interest from other top european teams too!.....Spenny mag

Believable4 Unbelievable16

One player toon won't sell is krul... He would cost 30m an no one will pay that after just 17 games in premiership.. He's still Younge so clubs have a few years to watch and wait... Saying that 30m for a player who could have 15 years left is great value

Agree0 Disagree0

I think it is krul he will go 4 6mill

Agree0 Disagree0

He won't leave yet he has said the best place for him is Newcastle at the minute playing week in week out in an effort to be Hollands number 1 at Euro 2012.

Agree0 Disagree0

6m are you popped man.. How much did man utd pay for that fragil.

Agree0 Disagree0

6 mil lol joker - Ashley is fat but not thick- he is worth 20 mil easy if he can mix it as one of the top keepers in the prem he can play anywhere... at his age too. 6 mil, clown... back to fifa for you son.

Apparently we're debating a trade offer from Man Utd. 14 million + Berbatov for Tiote. Although we're pursuing Pavlyuchenko probably because he's younger and demands slightly less wages. Expected to make an offer in the region of 10 million.
Coloccini will join Liverpool unless Newcastle match Liverfools wage offer of 70k pw.
Hopefully we can hold on to Ben Arfa as I'm sure he will come good. Although he's apparently not happy.
Finally.... I would like to see us make a move Samba as he's a massive threat from set plays and a proven PL CB. {Ed001's Note - Liverpool do not pay new signings 70k a week, they have a new wage structure which sees new buys come in on lower wages. Yes that does include Carroll, no new player is on that much and Coloccini will certainly not be offered anything like it by Liverpool. So that story is clearly false. The likes of Henderson and Adam are on less than half of that amount, despite both being offered more by other clubs. It is about getting players that want to play for the club not the money. Newcastle have a similar system in place now, it is paying dividends clearly judging by performances so far.}

Believable0 Unbelievable3

Rubbish..... Pav is 30... So very much doubt 10m bid.. If ya gonna make stuff up atleast make something up that falls into the category the toon are currently working with.. 14m + berb hhaha

Agree0 Disagree0

Yous are all mad if you be leave tiote will leave newcastle he is an amazing player but he is happy at newcastle

Agree0 Disagree0

So you've obviously been sleeping for the past year when there hasn't been a player over 26 brought in?

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would we want berbatov? Well past it, high wages

Agree0 Disagree0

How is Berbatov past it? Top scorer last season and isn't even getting a game this season. Eh?

Agree0 Disagree0

He has no resale value. have you not noticed everyone that has been bought in since ashley took over has been cheap and/or under 26. tiote is the best example, 3.5mil to buy, but if he goes we're looking at 20mil profit.

Agree0 Disagree0

Have you seen berbatov when he plays? he couldnt care less, thats why he doesnt

Agree0 Disagree0

Yet carrolls wages are listed as 110k per week on the liverpools official site?????

Agree0 Disagree0

Toon have put a price tag on tiote of 25 million and pool dont want collocini and have as good as said this. redknapp has stated that pavlyuchenko will stay at WHL and ben arfa wont be going anywhere cos he still coming back to fitness so no team would take a chance on him! finally, samba would be a good signing but he will prob go to one of the top 5 teams as its know harry and arsene are watching him!.....Spenny mag

Ed, u got any news to fill us all with Xmas joy.. Concerned by pardew comments regarding tiote and Ba at ACN saying they'll be a loss but our squad is big enough to cope.. Please please tell us this is because we have 5 super stars in a cupboard who have secretly signed..

Merry Xmas mate, dannitoon {Ed001's Note - I expect a striker to come in at least, there have been overtures made to Luuk De Jong and I am told at least one other (though I have been unable to find out who) with regards to a January move. The only thing I have been able to find out is that you are looking to pick up the best from teams that are not in European competition.}

Believable4 Unbelievable0

Ap has already stated publicly that he expects one player for sure to sign and that WILL be a striker and maybe a 2nd who wont be a midfielder due to the numbers we have in that position in the squad!.....Spenny mag

Agree0 Disagree0

Full of joy you are spent mag.. Sure u ain't Scrooge

Agree0 Disagree0

How? i didnt post the origianal comment! i stated what AP has said and thats one plyer will definatley be coming in so your obviously blind or daft and got both comment mixed into one!.....spenny mag

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed, any news on Zaha from Crystal Palace, or any other striker for that matter? {Ed001's Note - you have spoken to De Jong, I don't know much about Zaha, I know Palace have a ton of scouts at every match to watch him. I know a few scouts have recommended against signing him, due to a lack of end product. He has a tendency to be very wayward with his final ball.}

Believable2 Unbelievable0

Should fir in well with our lot then... Obertan, Jonas etc...

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Dec 2011 00:40:49
Ed... do u know anything about us being linked with "Douglas" brazilian centre back who plays for FC Twente? {Ed001's Note - nope, sorry. I know you have watched Twente repeatedly, but the only player who you have made overtures to is Luuk De Jong. It is perfectly possible that Douglas has been watched while you are there, but I don't know of any move for him.}

Believable1 Unbelievable1

I know its just paper talk but it was in one of them today about hom coming to us.

Agree0 Disagree0

Newcastle's left back problem could be solved with talk of the Erik Pieters deal back on and also another option could be 16 year old "Luke Shaw" of Southampton his performances have described him as the next Gareth Bale, Lightning pace and loves to get forward. Surely would be worth it, will be englands future LB and miles better than Shane Ferguson.

Believable6 Unbelievable3

Anybody half decent coming out of Southamptons academy from now on will always get described as "the next Bale", "the next Walcott" and "the next Oxlade-Chamberlain". It gets clubs interested.

Agree0 Disagree0

How can you say he is miles better than Fergie.. Your comments suggest you actually haven't seen him play...

Agree0 Disagree0

Or the next "ranger". lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

If you have seen this guy play, he will be englands next left back! your laughing now wait and see in years to come!
