Re: Football Season 2016/2017
Expecting a flurry of Newcastle signings over the next week or two. No strong names bar Arbeloa is it? Help me out Den. He's expected to move to Newcastle next month after his contract expires.

Re: Football Season 2016/2017
l expect Rafa will sign quite a few experienced players adzii as one thing you need to get out of the Championship are players with hardened experience and nous.

Ross McCormack and Reading's Danny Williams are reportedly being chased by Newcastle and then there are rumours of Newcastle being interested in Patrick Bamford , Lee Tomlin and Dwight Gayle.

This is the going rate now for decent players around the world.

Re: Football Season 2016/2017
Matz Sels to sign for Newcastle shortly. Building from the back. I'd expect Krul to be going now, without that we'd have 4 keepers on the books. Rob Elliot is arguably deserving of first spot given his commitment even if it did end with nothing.

Diddly squat will happen sadly TD.

Re: Football Season 2016/2017
Dwight Gayle expected to move to Newcastle for 11 million with Andros Townsend moving to Palace for 10 million.

Rebuilding process in full flow. Matz Sels signed yesterday.

Newcastle are looking to offload Sissoko (17 million) Possibly Tim Krul,

Re: Football Season 2016/2017
Dwight Gayle should do well in the Championship..

adzii_nufc 29-06-2016 14:22

Re: Football Season 2016/2017
Update: Dwight Gayle on Tyneside ahead of Newcastle move. Confirmation shortly or tomorrow.

15 million spent and nine recovered thus far. Given Benitez' comments it seems Newcastle will once again go spend happy. Still expecting a massive recoup for Andros Townsend and Moussa Sissoko and whatever else remains.

Key players staying:

Alex Mitrovic
Ayoze Perez - Seemingly confirmed by player.
Chancel Mbemba

Expected departures

Fabricio Colocinni
Andros Townsend (10m move to Palace ongoing)
Moussa Sissoko
Tim Krul
Daryl Janmaat.
Pa**** Cisse (On the fence)
Georginio Wijnaldum.

Assuming even three of those go, it's not hard to see why Newcastle are more than happy to splash cash around. They knew too having Benitez would persuade targets to come to a championship club. Townsend is apparently reluctant to go but failed to make a final decision. Townsend leaving will likely give the go ahead for Newcastle to sign Matt Ritchie from Bournemouth for 10 million.

Remains to be seen if incoming players have a release clause for no promotion.

Re: Football Season 2016/2017
Matt Ritchie set to sign for Newcastle. Nearly 30 million spent on 3 players.
