Newcastle have made some significant progress in the transfer market in the last 48 hours with the news PSV Eindhoven left-back Erik Pieters is likely to join former Manchester United winger Gabriel Obertan

Believable20 Unbelievable7

Just because it is on the sun and daily fail website does not mean it is true you fool, the enrique deal to leave is far from done and it is a similar situation to n'zogbia, an agent filling a players head with thoughts of huge clubs with top level football, no doubt he is good enough, but as it stands, the big boys aren't firmly interested, evidenced with charlie going to wigan in the end, see how this story develops

Arsenal, everton and tottenham want djalo so doesnt look like were going to get him

Sky Bet: Sporting Lisbon (evens) are favourites to sign Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner before the end of the transfer window. Can this mean that we have made an offer for Yannick Djalo? toonshack

any up date regarding tiote... is he still in Africa

Believable6 Unbelievable6

He is still there but his agent is finding a team to train with just to keep him fit

Agree0 Disagree0

He is back this week and in contention to face Arsenal.

Agree0 Disagree0

Isn't he playing in a ivory coast friendly?

Newcastle United are considering a bid of £3.5m for Norwich City striker Grant Holt.

Believable8 Unbelievable21

Since when does, we wont buy players who are to old suddenly lose its meaning? SMB

Agree0 Disagree0

No way he would leave Norwich, or Norwich would sell him

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed, please can you block these pointless mackem-originated posts about Grant sodding Holt. What is their fixation with him anyway?

Agree0 Disagree0

Haha whats make you think im a mackem, its a rumor of the bbc website check up on it. Insecure is not the word.

Agree0 Disagree0

What makes us think your a mackem...well for starters you got your info off the BBC...us geordies can afford sky

Agree0 Disagree0

Nice one

Enrique rumoured to be in talks to sign a new contract with Newcastle

Believable25 Unbelievable24

I,d like to think so but got a feeling Ashley will cash in on any decent bid for him?

Agree0 Disagree0

Only decent bid would be 12 mil +

Agree0 Disagree0

Yo soy Jose y estoy firmando un nuevo contrato de cinco anos en el toon army

Agree0 Disagree0

If only...

Agree0 Disagree0

If he stays it will be to run out his contract.
MA would not let this happen. He is going.

Agree0 Disagree0

Makes perfect sense. LFC haven't got the money to match either the asking price or what he is getting at NUFC. They are digging themselves into a bigger financial hole than NUFC were in three years ago. In the meantime no-one like Barca has come looking for him - so he's reconsidering his options.

Agree0 Disagree0

There is no bid in for him for Ashley to cash in, so what is giving you a feeling??

Agree0 Disagree0

(see previous post) no top 6 club is willing to recruit him at the moment, enrique's head has been turned by his agent with talk of arsenal and liverpool, much like charles n'zogbia's was a couple of years ago, another case of an agent fishing one suspects......

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2011 19:06:38
Ed any chance on Mounir El Hamdaoui, seems to be a nufc type transfer these days considering reports are saying there willing to let him go under 5 million euros

Believable12 Unbelievable4

{Ed042's Note - No interest as far as I know on our part, strong suggestions Udinese are set to sign him to replace Alexis Sanchez}

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2011 18:54:03
been looking on the liverpool site, and at 5:46 someone says liverpool have cooled there interest in Enrique, hope this is true

Believable9 Unbelievable6

Alot of people on Twitter saying this aswell supposedly due to them wanting a CB.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2011 18:25:14
Ed is there any truth to these Keirrison rumours?
Ive heard from a few sources now that we are close to signing him?

Believable13 Unbelievable6

{Ed042's Note - Caught offside is where it originated so I kind of wrote this one off a BS but it has since been reported in some spanish media as well as polish strangely enough, had to translate it all ha so looks like there is some truth to interest on our part, fee is within range as well, said to be around 3 to 4 million}

Agree0 Disagree0

Cheers Ed.
Do you know much about him? what type of striker is he?
I havent seen him play i just know he was highly rated, Barca signed him for a big fee and so far he hasnt lived up to the hype(tbf hasnt been given a chance though coz look at the players in front of him lol) and has been sent on a few loans.

Agree0 Disagree0

hearing obertan failed medical due to long standing recurring back problems

Believable10 Unbelievable23

In reply to the guy who posted about obertan having back probs ..just been on ssn that he's having a two day medical nothing said about back probs.i think if there was any probs they would of said something..what you recon Ed ...geordie tom

Agree0 Disagree0

Going on what happened with Ireland I reckon we'd sign him anyway

Agree0 Disagree0

It will just be another mackem jelous of the young talent we r bringing in do you think he would have been able to play the whole of the Man Utd pre season if he had some sort of medical problem.

Agree0 Disagree0

God these Mackem muppets are so funny .. its only agent Bruce who buys the Manu crocks - I bet Wes Brown and Mr Oshea are laughing all the way to the treatment table .. SMB

Agree0 Disagree0

Pardew already commented... Medicals are complete... difference is smb he is 22 with a chance to shine... your lot are 30+ with a chance to increase

Agree0 Disagree0

2 players so that must mean wickham and dong-won are 18 and 21 so they have a bigger chance to sign, your craic is very poor. actually think about your comments before you put them on, your making comments about 2 players who are 30 and 31, what about the other 7 players we signed they under 30? SGBS

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2011 17:09:07
been talking to an ex nufc player yesterday and he told me we wont sign long as ma wont pay 7m for him so i think we're looking at someone who will cost no more than 5m.
toontiles

Believable17 Unbelievable6

He's discussing terms with west brom (ssn)

Agree0 Disagree0

Could it be that they just dont value long at that price? we have bid more for other strikers in the summer, so not to say we wont pay the right price for right player

Agree0 Disagree0

We aint bid owt for any strikers so far.... all say so from AP and co

Agree0 Disagree0

Lets face it we wont be signing anyone looking at 3m tops

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2011 15:59:03
Yannick Djalo has turned down a contract extension at Sporting. Hopefully Nani will do what Drogba did with Tiote and convince him to come to England

Believable20 Unbelievable1

We will definitely not get him hes far too good nani will tell him to go to man u

Agree0 Disagree0

Speculation: Reports are claiming that West Bromwich Albion are close to agreeing a fee between £6million and £7m for Reading striker Shane Long. The Baggies reportedly met with Long's advisors over the weekend, with the Republic of Ireland international in line to become the Premier League club's record signing.....Looks like another one to miss out on (SSN)

Believable20 Unbelievable0

Yes I seen this flash up on sky sports news :L looks like it will be grant holt coming to us FML

Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe he isn't a plaer we want, you only miss out on someone if you're actively trying to sign them and they choose another club, I would think we have other targets

Agree0 Disagree0

Grant Holt as our striker signing would be pathetic...Ed please say it wont be so. {Ed042's Note - Really cant see it lad honestly, think about it}

Agree0 Disagree0

We wont sign Long as he is not French.

Agree0 Disagree0

Sad state of affairs if a club like west brom have more of a pull than us

Agree0 Disagree0

Who says west brom have more of a pull? Who says we have ever really been interested?

Agree0 Disagree0

He ain't worth the money, unproven in Prem and only 12 months left on his contract.

Geo

Agree0 Disagree0

He aint worth the money eh ??do you have a head full of marbles we have ameobi,lovenkrands,best anybody is worth the money at the moment

Agree0 Disagree0

Unproven in the prem.... hmmm who does that sound like a year ago AC? The news going around is we dont want to over pay (of reading thinks he is worth more than we do). Does 35mil ring a bell, fair to say we got far more than we ever thought we would for AC (much more), so really is 1 or 2 mil more than we want to pay really a huge mark up? Just sign a striker already

Agree0 Disagree0

Yep no one wants to come. Somethings very wrong.
Please stop running players down when they decide to go to somewhere else. It stinks and you are making a fool out of the club.
We have been telling everyone how great a signing he would be.

Agree0 Disagree0

there is a 80% chance sturridge to come on loan as chelsea have almost completed the signing of lukaku.

Believable12 Unbelievable31

Villa-Boas doesnt want him to leave, wants him in and around the first team. However they have put a 3m season loan fee on him. Not sure if the fat man would go for that or not.

Agree0 Disagree0

Has the 80% just been plucked out of the air?

Agree0 Disagree0

107.6% of statistics are made up on the spot

Agree0 Disagree0

Seriously you all need to realise he is not going on loan, he has played a part in all of our pre season and avb sees him as a key part of our team. you probably would have more chance of getting lukaku or kalou.

Agree0 Disagree0

We still have Shola, Ba, Best, Lovenkrands, Ranger, Xisco and Ben Arfa as forwards at the club (ignoring youth team prospects).

There's no way we're bringing any striker until some of them are moved on.

I fully expect Sturridge to go back to Bolton if he is allowed to leave on loan because they really lack strikers.

Agree0 Disagree0

How do you know its an 80% chance of him signing,what do you base that on.even if he was to leave chelski do you seriously think he would come to the joke of the english game that is nufc(as much as it pains me to say it)

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2011 10:14:38
Said yesterday

enrique to liverpool and bidge in on loan - bridge is now a last resort and only sign late in august if they cannot get 2 other targets in place. ( foreign based internationals).

a solid bid to be made for pavylucenko later this week - more than 6.5 mil i said more like 8mil. Shane long is now a serious target again but only at around 6mil- i was told from reliable source that toon have said what they will pay for long and are playing a waiting game.

again
obertan in tommorow
long/pavylucenko or tavionen who has been tracked but cud be too pricey for toon.
fullback this month

perch/ranger to go on loan
Enrique to liverpool but arsenal are interested again this morning.
I also know that newcastle are desperate to get rid of Smith, but no serious suitors at the minute. West ham mentioned if parker goes.

THIS WEEK WILL BE A BUSY WEEK - TRUST ME.

Believable16 Unbelievable12

Hope so mate actually sounds pretty kool

Agree0 Disagree0

Cant see MA offering 6.5m never mind 8m for Pav, hes 29, too old in MA's book.

Agree0 Disagree0

I am hearing that Birmingham have been linked this morning "set to beat Leeds to his signature" according to the unreliable twitter. Really hope he doesn't end up there tbh I'd be gutted. Not sure if they can afford to pay him any more than we can but I suppose theyve got the relegation parachute payment from Prem Lge?

Agree0 Disagree0

Where do I start?

Wayne Bridge, doubtful unless it's a last minute thing.

Pav too old wont pay the 10+ tottenham have told Moskow they want for him, wont pay his 60k p/w wages either, also he is 29 years old no re-sale value.... So thats a non starter.

Shane Long will not leave for less than 8m as Reading have already turned down 7.5M, so it could end up being a lot more than 8m, fat ashley wont pay that much, non starter.

Obertan, yep as he is young, cheap and only 20k p/w.

As for tavionen, I dont think PSV will let him go for anything within our budget, he is a key player.

I'm not 100% convinced that we will buy a striker before the window shuts, we have got Ba, Shola, Best, Lovenkrands, Ranger and young Sammy, plus Pardew is only planning on playing 1 up top, so "Cashley" will be asking himself why does he need to spend?.

Doom and gloom as usual........... booooo.

ToonBarmy

Agree0 Disagree0

How good is Ranger? is he good enough for the epl?johnny

Agree0 Disagree0

NUFC looking to cool the Barton row because he's gonna replace Tiote in CM. Tiote is off to Chelsea as reported on a different post. SteveToon

Believable6 Unbelievable36

I would think if this is true we would of asked for sturridge in px...or at least on loan

Agree0 Disagree0

Sturridge to be part of attack at chelsea not available

Agree0 Disagree0

Tiote has signed a 5 year contract and committed to the club , get back on your own page Mackem and keep thinking that two man u fringe players and a 10 year old striker will save you

Agree0 Disagree0

Total rubbish on every level - must be yet another Mackem masquerading as a Toon fan...yawn, get a life or failing that, get a job.

Even IF we sold Tiote to Chelsea (which is unlikely as Chelsea aren't even in the market for that type of player), Barton isn't a holding midfielder by any stretch of the imagination.

Dom.

Agree0 Disagree0

Tiote due back either tomorrow or Wednesday.

Agree0 Disagree0

Didn't Andy Carroll just sign a contract before he was sold?

Agree0 Disagree0

Rubbish barton.is a totally different type of player to tiote not a replacement

Agree0 Disagree0

How many times are the SMB gonna post tiote going to chelsea... get a life and use ya own site...

Agree0 Disagree0

Load of cobblers tiote is staying at the toon he does not want to sign for the southern blue slime

Agree0 Disagree0

So bull Chelsea signed Oriol Romeu. as cover for essien and are trying to sign modric so do know where ppl get this crap from

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2011 07:55:14
Toon have slim chance of loaning Adebayor as hes not going to make Citys 25.

Believable6 Unbelievable32

They'd have to pay about 90% of his wages like lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

They have two hopes. Little hope and Bob Hope. SteveToon

Agree0 Disagree0

Adabayor off to athletico madrid

Agree0 Disagree0

Makes sense, they'll be loaded after selling Aguero.

Agree0 Disagree0

What are we gonna do? No signing fee and ask City to pay 100% of his wages?

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2011 00:44:15
I see the papers are linking us with Grant Holt for 3.5m oh there is our world class striker

Believable8 Unbelievable20

If this is true i maybe forced to addict myself to codeine to numb pain of the impending season, all we're asking for is what we and poor pardew was promised squad strengthening if enrique leaves i pray eric pieters comes in + holt is not good enough

Agree0 Disagree0

Who said we were getting a "WORLD CLASS " striker. You don't live on the same planet as the rest of us son. If you look at our signings of the last 5 years nobody could be classed as "WORLD CLASS". Stop bleating, lower your expectancies and man up. SteveToon

Agree0 Disagree0

Holt would be a good 3rd choice striker, he has got pace and can score unlike Best and Amiobe... I just hope that he is signed as a 3rd choice or even 4th and that the fat man suprises everyone with a star signing.... or 2.

Agree0 Disagree0

I watched Grant Holt regularly 2 years ago when he was at Shrewsbury, he has no pace, yes he can finish but he isn't premiership quality far from it. DESPERate times ahead for newcastle and I am a toon fan

Agree0 Disagree0

Just watched Grant on U tube looks good.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think we got Malcolm Macdonald from Luton and he started as a left back

Agree0 Disagree0

Wont happen cos the papers are saying it will, name the last player a paper was right about us signing......none in recent memory, club is locked down, only 3 people in the world know who were interested in; Ashley, Llambias, Charnley end of....note i left pardew out. I'm expecting Wellbeck on loan to be honest.......

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2011 00:26:15
Alan pardew has been watching 2 players from psv today erik Pieters a 22 year old dutch international left back and ola toivonen a 25 year old swedish international striker who has scored 34 in 75 games for psv. A1 chef

Believable26 Unbelievable6

Two good players come on fat controller get them signed
