news to break in next 48 hours

newcastle are to tie a deal up for a player currently playing in holland.

dont know if this is douglas or what but ive just been told we have representitives over there at the minute and they were met by a large contingent from a dutch club!

fingers crossed its douglas or siem de jong but havent got any names for certain.....spenny mag

Believable7 Unbelievable9

Or Toby Alderweireld

Agree3 Disagree7

I saw something saying douglas wasnt leaving and that we've been linked with a number of dutch players e.g. jody lukoki or yanick wildschut or jermaine lens so could be one of them wouldn't mind getting a new cb in though

Agree1 Disagree2

Hope it's Siem de Jong as he is real quality. Not sure whether he is the powerful, pacey striker that Pardew desires though.

Agree2 Disagree3

I would like it to be de jong but it would be more beneficial in the current situation for it to be douglas or alderweild

Agree4 Disagree0

Weren't you the one that said remy would be holding talks and the news would soon break about it spenny mag well I will believe it when I see it

Agree6 Disagree0

I heard that its Adam Maher we are interested in.

Agree0 Disagree5

It could be Jeremain Lens at PSV. Absolute quality. A better signing then Remy.

Agree4 Disagree6

Pardew said he wants a powerful striker with pace who can also play on the wing. So why would it be De Jong?

Agree5 Disagree0

"A powerful striker with pace who can also play on the wing" so does that mean Remy or nothing or does it mean if we don't get Remy we're going for someone like Jermaine Lens

Agree3 Disagree1

We will get mat debuchy and thats it fat ash wont spend the money

Agree4 Disagree5

We've already got debuchy

Agree3 Disagree1

Its just a rumour lads but it looks like shola came from holland definately playing with cloggs on today

Agree1 Disagree1

It will be jack douglas thats who we will get

Agree1 Disagree0

Ashleys over there to tie up a deal to sell tulips in his jumble sale shops man ha ha ha

Agree0 Disagree0

Has remy been reported to be intalks a number of times? thats exactly what i said a while ago! matter settled.....spenny mag

Agree0 Disagree0

Few people mentioning charlie austin to newcastle .... Is it just me thinkin he might just be another beckford did brill in the lower leages and couldnt cut it in prem if i was to spend 6-10 mil on a striker i would want a proven top league player

Believable9 Unbelievable2

Austin's actually pretty good I wouldn't spend more than 3-3.5 million for him but I agree that a proven top flight player e.g. Remy would be a safer bet

Agree4 Disagree0

Sometimes you have to take a chance . What u need to look at is his actual finishes, is he sharp has he got a one touch finish ? Can he head is he strong, I know that is obvious but my point is if he ticks all those boxes it's worth a punt, you don't get many chances in prem so look at his accuracy ? We are creating so no reason why he an not score, I see your point about the money side of it, but you won't get a top player English for that amount and a foreign one is also a gamble !

Agree2 Disagree2

The way things are going if austin signs for us he will still be a great championship player

Agree5 Disagree1

Charlie austin has always scored goals but not to the extent of this year! beckford does spring to mind with me too. as does long!

he did the same yet isnt exactly prolific is he?

Agree0 Disagree0

145 goals in 222 appearances isnt a bad ration at all but hasnt played at a high level before so would be a gamble.

scored 48 for poole in 42 games but still didnt get a massive move like rhodes did last year.

done really well for swindon before moving to burnley so the lad could be anything.
has a nice touch and pace so could be a good foil for cisse like AP said thats what hes looking for.....spenny mag

Agree1 Disagree2

2 words, Shane Long. Seem a bargain at the 7 mil West Brom paid for him

Agree2 Disagree2

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is desperate to halt his team's slide towards the bottom three and is planning an audacious swoop for Inter Milan's out-of-favour midfielder Wesley Sneijder.

Believable2 Unbelievable15

Yep, because Ashley is known for giving out contracts over 200k a week...

Good one.

Agree10 Disagree2

Would be nice but not a hope in hell

Agree4 Disagree2

Wesley Sneijder offered to QPR?

Would he be good for us, a creative midfielder who can score goals.

I know wages would high for our owner but a steller signing maybe, rumoured available for 8mil.

Realistically would like to see Remy, sasko or Dawson and De Jong (another attacking midfielder) and sissoko

Believable2 Unbelievable6

Sneijder would never happen - forget it as nice as it would be. The wages he would cost would equal 3 - 4 players for us and thats about how many players we desperately need!

Agree2 Disagree0

Sneidjer wants like 200k a week. If your thinking of nigel de jong then that would be the last midfielder i'd want.

Agree3 Disagree0

At 200, 000 a week in wages i don't think he will be arriving at St James anytime soon !

Agree4 Disagree0

Nigel de Jong is defensive minded. Siem de Jong is who I think it is

Agree3 Disagree0

Original poster here. Yes I know sneijder would not be a real option just thru it in because of QPR link. Yes I realisitically I meant Siem De Jong of Ajax

Agree0 Disagree0

If you're talking about siem de jong then he'd be a great signing but if you mean nigel de jong then just no

Agree1 Disagree1

This was a fake rumour created by a twitter page. No way he would sign for QPR and his wage demands are rumoured to be in the 200,000 p.w. area.

Agree0 Disagree0

Been confirmed it was just paper talk and qpr have not been offered snieder. he would like to come to england but to a big club.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed, any news on striker replacements please? {Ed002's Note - Chelsea, Spurs, Newcastle, Everton, QPR and Lille have shown varying degrees of interest in Loic Remy but there have been no approaches to Marseille regarding Remy from Liverpool. There was discussion with Chelsea about Remy during the negotiations over Azpilicueta but it came to nothing. Remy would perhaps be interested in a move to England but his recent form has been poor and Marseille know it will be difficult to get a good price for the player. Newcastle will very likely complete the transfer of Remy in January, although there is a slim chance that they might face opposition from Everton who made a recent approach to Marseille about his availability on loan and QPR who are looking for a deal invloving a player moving in the opposite direction. As far as Marseille are concerned, they have started looking for a replacement but will hold out as long as they can to get the best price they can.

One wonders if Newcastle will look further at Charlie Austin or Gary Hooper as well?}

They have a battle on their hands as Arsenal are taking another look at the striker - who has stated he will not renew his contract which expires in 18 months.

Agree7 Disagree3

Agree5 Disagree2

Why on earth would we put a Bid in for Richards who is Injured and is always injured??

Agree4 Disagree2

Agree2 Disagree0

A bit like taylor then but pardews happy to pin his hopes on him i think richards is a class above any we have

Agree2 Disagree0

ed... is there any talk about martin marvin? i reckon he would be perfect for newcastle, but do you know of any team interested in buying him? {Ed002's Note - Marvin Martin only moved in the summer - he won't be moving again in January.}

Believable4 Unbelievable3
