I am off to London for few days - I mentioned twice over the last week about newcastle not spending over million and been under 25 years old and it was confirmed today- i think that by the time im back in newcastle we would have had a good bid for a player possibly coming out wednesday/thurs - 1 last try for Tomkins I have been told - may include a loan deal to sweeten deal. Again championship players are been targeted and french based youngsters. Young mcguire is a possiblity but at 2.5 mil.

suprisingly newcastle are putting together a bid but in there 8 million pound budget - so if we get tomkins do not expect rhodes - if mcguire/Donk 2.5 mil - expect a bid for rhodes at 5 million and what Ive heard lee clark may let him go to his beloved newcastle !!

I wont be speaking to anyone until thurs/fri so hoping something comes out before then.

What I understand from Pardews comments is that we have 8 million ring fenced for transfers in this window but if an exceptional talent comes available at the right price there may be more

Agree5 Disagree2

I ment 5 million in last text in 1st line

Alan Smith is going to stay until the end of the season and play upfront while ba is at the african cup of nations

Believable6 Unbelievable35

Don't believe this for a minute what do u think Ed?! {Ed001's Note - I would think Vuckic would be more likely to play than Smith, actually would fancy my chances ahead of him these days.}

Agree14 Disagree4

Someone is taking the p**s i reckon

Agree17 Disagree2

Worth playing him a bit at the end of games. Hasn't played in a while, still got quality. Gotta be worth giving him a chance, especially if he's on 60k a week.

Agree3 Disagree12

Why give him games hes leaving soon better off giving youngsters a chance ...del

Agree6 Disagree1

So then, we're gonna replace a striker who scores 15 in half a season with a player who hasn't scored in 5.

Agree4 Disagree2

Vuckic and best upfront with ben arfa on the wing

Agree0 Disagree1

Smith is very underrated now a days. He might be getting older but he's always been a very fair player. I'd love to see him play again, only injury keeps him out!

Agree0 Disagree2

Ferguson gets Scholes back from retirement! If the rumours are true about him looking at Tiote he's bound to try! Doesn't help us Tiote played well against them last week!

Believable3 Unbelievable10

Yes they both get red cards, but thats where similarities end, they are very different players. Scholes is a master of the pass and can't tackle to save his life. Tiote is a hard nosed mid, that can tackle, he just does it too hard sometimes, and he isn't the best passer of the ball. ManU (although i am sure could use him) need a creative mid, someone to cut a team open, Tiote isn't that man.

Agree10 Disagree2

They need someone who can tackle too though

Agree4 Disagree3

Tiote has only had one red card.

Agree3 Disagree2

I think Man Utd want Cabaye sadly i think they will get him too.

Agree3 Disagree4

If cabaye leaves it will be to real madrid

Agree2 Disagree4

And how many yellows has he got?

Agree0 Disagree2

It's got nothing to do with yellow cards the second comment said they both get "red cards" and I was just saying he's only had one red card whilst playing in England.

Agree0 Disagree1

Man Utd are prepared to wait for Cabaye after he knocked them back.

Agree0 Disagree2

Man utd have already stated that they probably wont be signing anyone in this window due to having to pay over the odds for players who arent top notch quality! no big name to leave NUFC before the summer! then i expect the main player to be attracting interest to be tim krul! hes playing fantastically well and i reckon you could see spurs and arsenal and maybe chelsea look at him!....spenny mag

Agree2 Disagree2

I agree spenny ,he's best keeper in prem imo.

Agree1 Disagree1

Without doubt he is! thats why he will be attracting big bids and plenty of them! not alot of big clubs have a fantastic keeper. hart at city is the one who stands out then after or alongside it has to be krul!....spenny mag

Agree0 Disagree1

Meeting between Pardew and Ashley has gone well and £8m is sanctioned for this transfer window but are ready to shell out more to sign real talents below 25. . . i don't know what happened to ashley,but it seems pardew has got a real influence in him.

Believable9 Unbelievable8

Wonder if this includes the 6million that was originally sanctioned for Maiga? If so it means they had only budgeted 2million for a CB. It's gonna be an interesting and nail biting transfer window but I'm starting to trust Pardew.

Agree7 Disagree3

You might trust Pardew, but who the heck trusts Ashley? He owns the club, if a bid comes in, he can force a transfer through unfortunately

Agree8 Disagree7

You don't trust Ashley but people trusted shepherd who almost bankrupt us and brought the likes of Owen and Albert luque to SJP. You can't knock the job Ashley has done lately. I think we will either sign no one or bring three or four in Eric pieters, Tompkins and a striker

Agree15 Disagree3

Hope not pieters would he be the same after breaking his foot.

Hi ED any news on Jason Prior?? word is he did well but not heard anything else any news??

Believable0 Unbelievable1

He's still on trial for between 7 -10 days. This came from his clubs chairman. So expect some more info by the end of the week

Agree0 Disagree0

Bognor regis website keeps updating their fans on his progress!

Agree0 Disagree0

Ah bless Bognor ,thats so sweet.

Agree0 Disagree0

Thats what liitle companies with a real family feel do within the community! they look after their own and a lot of their supporters are keen to see one of their lads do well so dont see the point of the "thats so sweet comment"! just stupid really!

Agree0 Disagree0

He scored in the reserve game last night...

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't know if this is right ,but I saw in rumour page that jordan rhodes of huddersfield coming to nufc for £7.5m + 3 month loan deal for shane ferguson. . .fingers crossed

Believable8 Unbelievable13

7.5million hahah dont be daft

Agree7 Disagree2

Bit hypocritical arnt you after all the stick we took over payin 8 mill for a championship player !

Agree2 Disagree3

Not hypocritical at all...this lad ACTUALLY scores goals...

Agree2 Disagree2

It's different in the prem league mate

Agree4 Disagree2

We will not be paying that kind of money for a untried player! never! would be plain stupidity! if he fails to make the grade then its a big loss and NUFC arent about this! they about getting youngsters in who have a sell on fee thats why we keep chasing bargains= to make money if other clubs want to buy our players

Agree0 Disagree0

Clarky has said he doesn't want to sell, but if toon came knocking with 5 mill it would be a done deal ;)

Agree0 Disagree0

Hey guys this 10m clause thing seems to be bugging alot of us nufc fans. Was it that long ago when Harry redknap claimed Chelsea where tapping up luka modric does anyone else agree with me. I believe this is tapping up demba Ba. I don't know if these rumours are true but I have all faith in pardew , however would love to see some movement in the transfer window soon. Geordiematt

Believable12 Unbelievable2

This is true about the 10m release clause shame but demba ba agent has been talking to few clubs like tottenham Liverpool etc. that's how Harry knows about it player and agent after a big payday and champions league football next season

Agree1 Disagree4

I agree with the tapping up, but y would he do this? If he wanted ba he would keep quiet nd exercise the release cause, not tell everyone. Hes so bent, back handers and all its unbelieveble. But is bas agen touting him around so he gets another big pay day off the striker? Read bob moncurs interview on the chronicle live sight, makes good reading!

Agree3 Disagree1

Arry winding people up with his dubious transfer dealings? Never!

Agree3 Disagree1

I'm a sunderland fan and even I agree, he does it every window, unsettled gyan for us.

Agree6 Disagree1

As much as I hate 'Arry, it sounds as though he was not to blame as much as we think. He was responding to a question that was asked in the media about a release clause...still he has enough mates in the media to have staged all this. Fingers crossed.

Agree0 Disagree2

According to bbc gossip when ba returns, he will sign a contract with newcastle again as he is happy and settled on tyne.

Agree7 Disagree1

Ba has had an offer of a 4 year extention to his present contract which would take him up to 50k a week and we will have him signed until 2016...and he has told Pardew he will sign when he returns from ACoN's....He is a deeply religious man and is not governed by money. Him, and more importantly his family, are very happy living in Newcastle. And he is very happy playing for Newcastle United.
Harry Redknapp should be warned by the FA for his constant underhand behaviour in transfer window's...but you know what they say...once a spiv, ALWAY's a spiv...

Agree11 Disagree1

You guys got a link for this? Cos I just looked at the gossip column for today and all it says in relation to a contract was "Tiote was handed a new six-and-a-half year contract after impressing during his fist six months with the club last season, and it would be no surprise if the board attempted to tie up Ba's future - his current deal runs until the summer of 2014 - in another pre-emptive strike." Nothing about a pay rise, nothing saying he'll sign when he gets back from ACON.

Agree1 Disagree0

It hapened last year with Carrol and Tottenham statted the rumours of a 25M bid.. strangely Spurs Chairman is Ashley friend and I wouldn't be surprised if it's been strated on Ashley request in order to generate interest in pocket 10M in Jan,,

Agree0 Disagree1

If there is a 10 million clause in dembas contract who released it because i dont hear any stories of any agent saying it ,
typical cockney t**t harry redknapp
stirring s**t again i think

Agree1 Disagree1

Remember Arry in the summer crying about Feguson talking about Modric?

Agree0 Disagree0

This is 100% true! the reason harry knows about it is down to karen brady at west ham! she made known in her sun column a week gone saturday that he had one at west ham and insisted on one at NUFC! she went on to say she wonders how loyal he would stay to NUFC if another club comes in for him! typical of west ham to be like that! the woman and HR should be told to shut up by the FA cos it insights bad feeling and players contracts are confidential and these 2 are flouting the rules but think about it, why has HR never been offered the england job? cos he too suspect and dodgy and keeps getting investigated for dodgy dealing! he did on the lord stephens report into bungs and then for taxes in an offshore account relating to taking a player to portsmouth!.....spenny mag

Agree0 Disagree0
