@Ed020. Anymore on the Bangura duo, they both claim that Newcastle want them, but I heard Mohhamed Bangura has been the subject of a bid from Locomotiv Moscow. Do you think that, in a few years obviously, they will be good players for the TOON?

To be honest, I'm not really too sure what to think about Erdinc... I think that personally, I would rather sign one proven, world class, young, with the potential to get better in the future, than two strikers costing 5mill each that will only score 10 goals a season. What do you think?

{Ed020's Note - Its a tricky one. The Banguras will say we are after them just to attract interest - one of the many games players like to play in the Transfer window. And you're right Moscow did bid for him. We've been tracking them for a while now though. As for Erdinc, I rate him...he's what we need. So many times I've seen our strikers waste chances. You cant do that in the PL and Erdinc is a natural finisher. He has 10m euro buy out clause and for me, he's worth that (About £8.5m)}

ED, Erdinc is not a natural goal scorer, if u read his fact file ull know, {Ed015's Note - That told him :L }

Newcastle Utd preparing a 9 mil bid for wigans Hugo Rodellaga who is reportedly interested in coming to St James, to follow in country s man Tino Asprillas foot speps If true would be a bit of a coup think hes under rated...

{Ed020's Note - Tino Tino Tino! If he's good enough to score 3 against Barca I'd have him. Joking aside, I doubt Rodallega and N'Zogbia would arrive. Maybe one out of the two}

Believable11 Unbelievable9

I heard on sky sports news that roddiega from wigan is in talks with the toon they are talking around 9-12 million

Ya iv heard this too think this one could be possable as the player is interested but cant see ashley puting up the money..

lisandro lopez and juan manuel martinez to toon for 20 and 5 mil respectively

{Ed020's Note - I'd be surprised if Lopez became a Newcastle player, Martinez more likely out of the two}

Believable8 Unbelievable11

Martinez from Bilbao?

{Ed020's Note - No, Juan Manuel Martinez. A 25yr old Argentinian striker who plays for Velez Sarsfield in the Argentinian 1st Division}

Agree0 Disagree0

South American players in the Prem? Doesnt often work out for them, they all seem to struggle. Wigan signed Boselli and look what he did

{Ed020's Note - Signing any player from abroad is a risk. They could be a sterling success though}

Agree0 Disagree0

Whats the source for a lopez? Seems a bit unlikely would be a fantastic buy mind

Ed20 - Have the club actually came out and stated we arent going for Sturridge? Or is it journalists making headlines? I know he will cost a wedge but he is just what Newcastle need and is what the fans want. Even with a supposed 35 million to spend, Ashley should still give a transfer kitty on top (if we didnt have the 35 million, he would have had to put money in anyway?). I'm pleased with the signings so far however we are really lacking in the striking department. Need another 2 strikers without doubt. Some things I agree with how Ashley runs things, others I do not agree with. I'm hoping Pardews comments today are just bare minimum he would settle for. I think we will have about 5 targets, but we won't get them all hence Pardew stating a further 2 more.

{Ed020's Note - Hi mate, I understand that somebody within the club said we arent interested. Then the journalists blew it way up! Teams like to keep transfers on the low so it may be a cover up. It's all cat and mouse at this stage. Ashley did say he would "re-invest" the 35m...basically he stuck it in his back pocket and laughed. Have to wait and see mate}

Ed020, have you heard anything of N'zogbia, he would be a great signing

{Ed020's Note - Rumours flying around yesterday were that another bid was put in. However, as far as I'm aware, wages were the problem last time as he was demanding over 60k a week. But I wouldn't be surprised to see him as a Toon player by August 31st}

Thanks ed grat to see a nufc fan on here

{Ed020's Note - My pleasure}

Ed any idea of any more interest in Barnetta or Menez

{Ed020's Note - Menez was never really going to happen just rumours. As for Barnetta its all gone very quiet. This may be a good thing as transfers are often kept on the low. Look at Tiote, Cabaye, Marveux Ben Arfa etc. We heard nothing until the day they were anncounced}

Hasnt erdinc been offered to lille as part exchange for hazard? He could be outa the question now ED20

{Ed020's Note - Like I've said before that's the French trying to start a bidding war! Lille want 45m for Hazard and PSG only offered 31m + Erdinc. And Hazard has offers from all over Europe! Doubt we are out of it bud}

Ed20. totally agree with you about a striker being needed maybe 2 could also do with a couple of top defenders or at least some no nonsense one who can actually hold their own midfield all but covered which is a bonus so im thinking 4 more players of a certain standard and NUFc have the making of a good looking squad

{Ed020's Note - Strikers have to be the priority now. We can't rely on Shola, Best and Lovenkraps for next season. Erdinc is perhaps the most likely right now.}

Wayne bridge and forest youngster mcgugan being touted as players we looking at Anyone know if this romaric any good?

{Ed020's Note - He's OK. Not an out and out striker though. We already have Cabaye, Barton, Jonas, Tiote, Marveux, Guthrie, HBA, Gosling etc. who are midfielders. We need a proper striker!}

Ed or anyone how many players do you reckon more we will bring in to NUFC Im hoping for at least 2 more strikers a winger and a left back and centre back taht would do me just dandy

{Ed020's Note - We'd be lucky to get 3 I think. Pardew has said he expects "one or two" more signings. So I suspect 2 and then a surprise one afterwards. Also it just depends on who leaves too! Jose is on his way out so that means we need another full back. We'll have to see but don't get your hopes up buddy}

Pardew has said "we will get 1 or 2 more" then added "whether they will wear the number 9 shirt remains to be seen".
this is very poor news for parsdew to live up to what he PROMISED we will have to be buying N'zogbia £10mil and a £15mil striker anyones guess really but gotta be honest surely that 1 or 2 will surely depend on who leaves and how people look in pre-season (last chance saloon for several especially Ranger) if he impresses hell be loaned out not sold

Believable7 Unbelievable3

Dont be stupid you cant afford N'zogbia's wages and i have more chance of becoming Man utd's top scorer this season than you's lot getting a 15million pound striker you should be happy with all these frenchys you are signing you should sign Erdnic because he is crap xD

P.S i am not a sunderland fan

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jun 2011 15:14:28
Come on guys lets face it MA is not going to lay out any money for players. He is only going to spend what he gets in. The "£35million re-investment" means he has put it in his pocket. If we are lucky we will sell Ranger and Best for around £1.5m and £3 million and we will buy a Striker for that. Pardew has said "we will get 1 or 2 more" then added "whether they will wear the number 9 shirt remains to be seen". This means "we are NOT buying a top striker"

ED have you got any knowledge on the Sturridge situation?
Heard off a couple of people that we are close to agreeing a deal and that we are trying to keep it quiet.

{Ed020's Note - The last I heard was that it wasn't going to happen at all. Somebody from inside the club reportedly said he wasn't a target. I for one hope that's not true he's the type of player we need. Especially as Stoke kicked the bidding off at a measly 6m}

Pardew told the local Newcastle local press today:

We re all looking forward to getting back to work next Monday. The squad is looking healthy and, hopefully, there are still one or two to come.

They won t be in before July 4, but we hope to get one in before the tour of America and there could well be one after the tour.

We are still looking to get another striker whether or not they will wear No 9, we will have to see.

-I hope theres more than 2 to come in. We need another 2 proven goalscorers Linked on Talksport with Barry Ferguson, probaly aload of rubbish- hopefully.

This is not false. My mate works at Birmingham FC and he is saying that Birmingham manager Chris Hughton wants to sign striker Peter Lovenkrands. Lovenkrands was fantastic in Newcastle's promotion winning season scorin 13 league goals and 17 in all competitions in less than 25 appearance for Toons. Chris will definately sign him as he thinks he will provide major boost in Blues attacking line up and could prove X-factor. Remember Hughton brought him back at Newcastle for second spell.
Do we want Lovenkrands to depart? He is not bad. scored 6 league goals and could be used as good impact palyer. plz comment

It seems to me that we are clearing out our oldys and lovenkrands is 31. . DP

We had Ignacio (Nacho) Gonzalez on loan a couple of years ago, different player he was from Uruguay.

Lucho is an argie, played in Argentina, Portugal and now France, however I agree that it is probably just paper talk as he is late twenties and an established european player so would demand fairly high wages. . out of our league anyway.

we had Lucho Gonzalez on a season long loan a few years back. he is now 29 or 30 and his wages would be to expensive for mr tight ashley, aslo i don't think he would want to join us. he spent the season injured, we loaned him from valencia at the time. if i am wrong please correct me people or even ed please? he would be a great player for us, but i thought we were going for the younger look? Any news on edring ed?

{Ed020's Note - His age concerns me to be honest, not what Ashley is after by the sounds of it. Great player without a doubt but it's unlikely. As for Erdinc there have been no new devolopments as far as I'm aware. The PSG bid for 31m + Hazard was the French media trying to spark extra intrest so it looks like we are still in the drivers seat. International window opens tomorrow so expect more info as of July 1st}
