Offered 3 million euros + future fees to Bastia for Thauvin, club president has confirmed they are considering the offer

Believable12 Unbelievable1

They are waiting for Arsenal to bid more
He will be losend back to his Club for the Rest of the Season

Sissoko Signed Great

Agree4 Disagree1

I think it's likely they'll wait for only two or three more days for arsenal though

Agree1 Disagree2

As a lifelong mags fan I can honestly say we overachieved last season. We deserved to finish 5th as the PL is over 38 games, but I think we were fortunate with injuries and players we signed hitting the ground running (Ba in the first half of the season, Cisse in the second and Cabaye pretty much outstanding throughout.) I think the board have realised their mistake in not strengthening during the summer as a Europa campaign and injuries have blighted our season. I'm pleased to see they are backing Pards with some quality signings (Mbwia and fingers crossed Sisokko.) Gouffran may be a unknown quantity at the moment and the LB one for the future but I'm happy with our activity in the market. I think MA has realised our league position could be in jeopardy and with the tv riches of next season at stake acted. Also once HBA is back ill be a happy mag! Lets look forward to the second half of the season and get behind our beloved toon!

Agree8 Disagree0

Well said mate, nice to see we will have a stronger side through the second half of the season, not wanting to be greedy but in would still like us to fetch another striker in for some competition for cisse

Agree4 Disagree0

We should in the top 8, challenging for 6th. Like Everton have 10 good players (Jelavic, Fellani, Osman, Jagelika, Distin, Pienaar, Coleman, Naismith, Baines and the belgian striker Millas or something) we have 15 or 16 (Krul, Debuchy, Colo, Mbwia, Both Taylors, Santon, Tiote, Cabaye, Marveaux, Cisse, Ben Arfa) then Sissoko when signs, possibly Gourffan and Haidara, Jonas and Anita is decent, Bigi, Fergie, Campbell and Vuckic all have very good potentional as is Haidara

Agree2 Disagree3

The Thauvin deal if it comes off will be for next season, he will just return to Bastia on loan.

Agree2 Disagree0

Bigi has great potential I agree but has been outstanding already. I rate him more than either Taylor.

Agree0 Disagree2

Taylor has not turned out to be the player that was expected wether that's due to recurant injuries who knows big does not look out of place in epl tbh...k

Agree1 Disagree1

WENGER said in press conference he won't be signing any french players and thauvin is french

Agree2 Disagree0

Haidara signed. Next is Sissoko. Also chasing another Centre Back in the event that Coloccini's situation doesn't end favourably.

tv reporting Sissoko has left Toulouse to join Newcastle! This is fantastic news! This window has been good for us.

Believable5 Unbelievable2

Sissoko is a very good player, we will see this straight away ! {Ed001's Note - it wasn't that long ago that Commolli was telling him that he was seen as the long term replacement for Steven Gerrard. That would suggest he is a decent player.}

Agree5 Disagree1

24 Jan 2013 17:24:12
Toulouse official website reporting sissoko is on his way to newcastle for a medical fee has been agreed 2.2 million

Believable5 Unbelievable1

He is worth 9 million - bargain

Agree2 Disagree0

More like 15m as they turned down that offer 6 months ago and said he was worth 30m

Agree3 Disagree1

Jimmy Kebe joining from reading

Believable0 Unbelievable9

That was a joke he made because we've signed so many French players. It's more insulting that he thinks he's good enough for us than anything

Agree7 Disagree1

He was joking

Agree2 Disagree0

He was joking...

Agree3 Disagree0

It was him playing a prank about how we've signed every French player alive.... sacrebleu!

Agree1 Disagree0

Dont start!

Agree2 Disagree0

He, s joking because he, s french aswell.....k

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Jan 2013 23:09:41
That was a joke he put on twitter!

Agree1 Disagree0

Pretty obvious it was a joke as soon as I heard.... We are only interested in decent French footballers..... Bit of jealousy from Kebe I think...

Agree0 Disagree0

I think Kebe forgot he represents Mali and that we're buying French U21/ Full Internationals so we weren't going to consider him

Agree0 Disagree0

Reports coming from France that a fee has now been agreed for Sissoko (Chronicle), and he has stated his preference to join us, (Chronicle & tv) wish we would get this one over the line, I realy think the guy will be a fantastic addition, heard anything solid Ed? {Ed013's Note - A deal is close}

Believable2 Unbelievable0

Sissoko done deal to sign this window for a fee believed to be roughly £2 million, reported in france.

Believable4 Unbelievable1

What a bargain, it was not that long ago Toulouse knocked back 15 million for him and priced him at 30 million Euros.

Agree2 Disagree3

Another french player and I can't stop thinking all of this was done because all players coming in will know each other and be able to play together straight away so they should have no problems gelling could go either way for the club as they need to not only adapt to the club but the premiership but I for one am extremely excited to watch this new team

Agree1 Disagree0

Just been on Toulouse website. They reporting he is in Newcastle to sign and they wish him well for the rest of his career

Agree0 Disagree1

He's worth about 8 million now according to transfer markt

Agree0 Disagree0

RB sorted, CB sorted (if Colo settles) and CM sorted. Now bring on RVW or similar and January looks a damn sight better than expected. Unless a star has to be sold to pay for all these new faces...

Agree2 Disagree1

French publication le10sport is reporting that NUFC and Toulouse have agreed a E2.5m (£2m) fee for Sissoko to move to NUFC now.

The player has apparently had to make a concession on a signing-on bonus for NUFC to up their bid from 1m to 2m (reading between the lines).


Believable2 Unbelievable2

Really really hope so
Very positive news as this would prove
He wants to come for football reasons and not money

Agree1 Disagree1

Will he come in January ? Or a Orr contract ? Be good too see him in this window. Also any news on a striker ? Still think we need 1 more ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Just read on tv that sissoko has terminated his contract with Toulouse and will sign up with immediate effect

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jan 2013 00:36:37
Collocini Finished at Newcastke and will not play again
for the club
Registration held by NUFC so he can not play
for anyone. Sad End for a good player and
leaves us in the sh...t
We need get at least on of the defenders
we are chasing. AND Now

Believable7 Unbelievable10

Perhaps his 'personal' issues are with the club or individuals within it. I am rapidly losing respect for a man who deserves so much.... he is literally manufacturing a move away from the club. if I were newc I would stand on principles and suspend him if he returns to argentina, and withhold his registration to prevent him playing with san lorenzo. and why arent fifa investigating this matter? no negotiations took place with the club, and they were clearly in talkes with the player!
if he needs time off, give him a month then get him back to work, because that's what it is... a very well paid job of work!

Agree6 Disagree0

He's arrived at training tv

Agree5 Disagree0

He has turned up for training 24/01/13
at 0925 so I think he will play. don't believe everything you read

Agree5 Disagree0

Turned up to training this morning keep faith in him at least until the summer.

Agree4 Disagree0

Ed's is it true Colo has walked out on us or just gossip /rags stirring? {Ed001's Note - I can't find anything on him walking out, there have been heated discussions, as happens, but I expect an amicable solution to be found in the end.}

Agree1 Disagree1

This was reported in one of the newspapers and is totally false.

Agree1 Disagree1

If the story was ture why is it not in every paper and all over the Internet and on tv think it just paper talk colo is a fair man and said that he wanted to find a fair way to leave the club and I think he will because for one I could see Ashley doing wat manc did to tevez fining him and making his life hell

Agree3 Disagree1

If the lad wants to go I really don't see the point in keeping him, then again if he was/is been a d!ck about it, i'd toss him in with the under 21s and tell him to rot there until his contract is finished.

I really think we need another CB I don't think his heart will be there for us anymore

Agree2 Disagree0

It personal issues outside the club and he is talking further with the club today.

Agree3 Disagree1

Maybe not for this window but perhaps the summer, heard from Kicker in Germany today that Dortmund are letting Felipe Santana go at the end of the season. 6'3, 26 (27 in Summer), a million euro release clause, and he gets time in a very good side that has Hummels and Subotic. Think he would be a good signing and for cheap

Agree0 Disagree2

Wish the whole back 4 had his spirit, and desire!whatever happens good luck to him..class act!

Agree0 Disagree0
