Ed what's the likelyhood of gignac being available in the summer {ed's note - he is likely to be available for the right price, though I am not so sure Newcastle would be in the running for him.}

Think NUFC need to sign at least 3 players in the summer imo, looking at who is probably worth keeping the squad looks a bit like this. .

Ameobi Best Ranger
Jonas Tiote Nolan Barton
Arfa Guthrie Gosling Kazenga
Enrique Collo Willo Simpson
Ferguson Kadar s.Taylor Tavernier
Harper Forster Krul

With Carroll gone the obvious gap needed filling in the starting 11 to improve the first team is a striker. would guess that r.taylor, lovenkrants, smith, cambell, routledge would be allowed to leave for whatever the club can get for them to get the wage bill down - smith and cambell especially and then those players replaced with freebies along the lines of elmander/larsson.

Think with sunderlands apparent money woes, trying to nick in and secure a permanent deal for onouha would be the perfect signing our defence needs as he can play anywhere in teh back 4. Also think Gervinho has to be the no1 target as he could play off one of our many target men, out wide with arfa in a 433 or even right side in a 442 if barton had to tuck for injuries and routledge will no doubt be sold.

Would be an excellent summer if we kept our good players and only brought in onouha, elmander, gervinho - what do you think? ?

Ed have toon had talks with gervinho or anyone else about summer tranfers? {ed's note - not talks as such, a couple of players were sounded out, I believe Gervinho, Van Wolfswinkel and Elmander were amongst them. A couple of players, those 3 amongst, are supposed to have suggested they might be interested if Newcastle were in the Prem next season, but that is as far as things have gone.}

Ed any right backs that toon are interested in? {ed's note - none that I am aware of, though that could probably just be overshadowed by the obvious search for a striker.}

Toon to sign Elmander, Cisse, Ireland (full time) and winger. Tomkins from west ham is target to replace Campbell. Smith will be let go. Could need 2 left backs if Enrique leaves, Paul Konchesky or Stephen Warnock to join on cut price deal to either fight for place against Enrique or to replace him. Winger could anyone out of Larsson, nzogbia, Jarvis, Taarabt, Adam Johnson (if city want sell), Legear or Sevilla Argentinian winger who weve already been linked with. Bright future hopefully ahead.

Emilio Izzaguirre lined up as a replacement if Jose Enrique is to leave in the summer. They signed him for under a million in the summer and will be looking at around 5m i have been told.
