January transfer window

Recommended Posts

And according to the makem at The Guardian:

Quote

Newcastle

If mid-table security is to be cemented, Steve Bruce could do – rather desperately – with a reliable striker, thereby reducing his dependence on defenders for goalscoring. Bruce needs to sell to buy and hopes to offload midfielders Jack Colback and Henri Saivet, who together earn almost £100,000 a week and are not in the 25-man first-team squad. Dwight Gayle could be sold to a Championship club while Yoshinori Muto and Ki Sung-yueng could also be offloaded. Hull’s Jarrod Bowen is Bruce’s main target. Louise Taylor

 

Muto has never really proved himself but is better than both Gayle and Atsu.

And WTF has Ki done wrong?

 

What's the odds on Longstaff still going to Man U?

Bowen would be a good signing. The ones being touted out have done nowt in the premier league. Sell them all and buy one player who will make a difference

Good on him. That's what you get when you shop in the bargain bin. Shite players sitting on their contact

Absolutely. People have a go at him for just seeing put his contract but he’s a very ordinary player that was signed not with an eye to what he added to the team but because of his age and his being out of contract, ie it’s exactly what the owner deserves for his ‘rediculous’ transfer policy

Seen today we are linked with Piatek from Milan. £30 million. Which means we wont be signing Piatek. Apparently hes worrying about his place since they brought zlatan back.

The only player(s) we sign this window is some unknown shite from the French / Portuguese B leagues


aka “value for money” :lol:

 

If we really did spunk 40 million on joelinton, I doubt there will be much spending on transfers if any.

25 players currently in squad + 2 not on loan (Colback injured though). 

 

We’ll have to let a few go if we’re going to bring in what we need.....Gayle looks on his way, Muto looks surplus to requirements and the best thing for all concerned is for someone to call Joelinton’s agent and tell him to find a loan till the end of the season. In fact I’d do that as the main priority. This of course relies on better players being keen to sign for us. An empty husk of a club that no player capable of improving us is likely to join....

Ben Arfa is without a club, oh wait cabbageheed was manager of Hull when it all turned to shite there.

 

And if Colback injury is long term, may as well pay him out now to free up a spot in the squad (his contract ends this season, no?).

Colback didn't make the squad so isn't taking up a spot.

 

Yeah you're obviously right.

Suppose there is no chance of the ginger Pirlo taking a percentage to fuck off. (Rhetorical)

Aston Villa and Newcastle are both considering signing Glenn Murray from Brighton on a short-term deal until the end of the season.

The 36-year-old striker is out of contract at the Amex Stadium in the summer and has made just three Premier League starts so far this season under Graham Potter. With Brighton in the market for another forward this month having been linked with CSKA Moscow striker Fyodor Chalov, it is understood that Murray would be allowed to leave if they can secure a replacement.

That has alerted both Villa’s Dean Smith and Steve Bruce of Newcastle, who are both keen to strengthen their attacking options in the January transfer window. Villa have also been linked with moves for Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud having lost record signing Wesley for the rest of the season to a knee injury, while Newcastle are hoping to provide more support for Joelinton and Andy Carroll.

Glenn Murray?  With our scouting networks skills we'll more likely end up with Glenn Miller

No good in the air.
