Jack Colback wants to stay in the north, and is currently being chased by both wolves and Hull
No deal for Jack Colback agreed with Wolves yet. Hull still interested and he wants to stay in north. No surprise to see Sunderland linked.— Lee Ryder (@lee_ryder) August 31, 2017
Newcastle have reportedly enquired about Southampton Left Back Matt Targett. The 21 year old would be a much needed addition to the left side of the pitch
#nufc have enquired about Matt Targett but that's as far as it's got so far. United still looking at left-back options.— Lee Ryder (@lee_ryder) August 31, 2017
Matt Targett looks to be a loan option, does this mean that Rafa is waiting until January for a permanent Left Back replacement or is he maybe looking for a loan to buy deal.
#nufc still pushing for Matt Targett on loan as they look to move Lazaar to Beneveto.— Lee Ryder (@lee_ryder) August 31, 2017
Newcastle have apparently been chasing a potential Gayle replacement in Turkish forward Cenk Tosun. The 26 year old Turkish international has scored a goal and picked up 3 assists so far this season after an impressive campaign last year where he scored 20 goals in 29 appearances.
Newcastle have officially made an offer for Matt Targett.
Newcastle have now made an official approach to Southampton to take Matt Targett on loan.— Keith Downie (@SkySports_Keith) August 31, 2017
Tim Krul looks set to be heading to Brighton, as they have made a loan offer and Dutch outlets claim he is currently undergoing a medical
Brighton have now submitted a loan offer for Tim Krul but there are a couple of others interested. #nufc— Lee Ryder (@lee_ryder) August 31, 2017
As the Matt Targett Deal looks more and more likely read about him here.
Gayle not likely to be sold today , because replacements are hard to come by.
NUFC not ruling out sale of Dwight Gayle but 100% dependant on signing a replacement, making it highly likely he'll stay.— Craig Hope (@CraigHope_DM) August 31, 2017
Tim Krul deal to Brighton seems likely, read all about it here.
Newcastle miss out on loan target Origi.
Divock Origi joins Hamburg on a season-long loan. Another one slips by for Newcastle...— Keith Downie (@SkySports_Keith) August 31, 2017
Targett and Kenedy offers sent in, this likely means we won’t see Kenedy at LB if he joins Newcastle on loan.
NUFC are waiting for a yes/no from Chelsea re Kenedy, while loan offer has gone in for Southampton's Matt Targett.— Craig Hope (@CraigHope_DM) August 31, 2017
Newcastle chasing Perez sounds too good to be true (again)
Newcastle reluctant to let Dwight Gayle leave until they get replacement. Remy, Perez & Ings all put to me - understand Perez most likely.— Keith Downie (@SkySports_Keith) August 31, 2017
There are currently no healthy Left Backs on the roster besides Lazaar, this could possibly mean he stays (at least until January)
Lazaar’s future seems to completely dependent on the Targett situation.
Lazaar's move to Benevento not completely over. Matt Targett still a possible for #nufc and Lazaar's medical could be in Newcastle. ⏳— Lee Ryder (@lee_ryder) August 31, 2017
Interesting table here showing the amount of cash spent by each team so far in the window
Craig shutting down all the false rumors today. To the happiness of many, NUFC are not in for Oliveira
NUFC are not in for Norwich striker Nelson Oliveira, for those who asked.— Craig Hope (@CraigHope_DM) August 31, 2017
Fans are #FedUp
Gayle sale is not happening.
Nicky sums everything up nicely
As of right now, Lee Charnley should be sacked first thing in the morning. He won't be though, Ashley approves of mediocrity #NUFC— Hello, I am Nicky (@ORANGEYPURPLE) August 31, 2017
League 1 side Fleetwood are apparently looking to snap up Freddie Woodman on loan. This would leave Newcastle with two keepers on the roster if Krul is truly to be loaned.
Douglas claiming that NUFC are in for a couple of more signings
Still a deal or 2 for #nufc I feel (certainly working on them). But no doubt Rafa'll view summer as unsatisfactory, to say the least.— Mark Douglas (@MsiDouglas) August 31, 2017
Another target missed as Perez heads to Spain on loan.
Hearing that Lucas Perez deal to Deportiva La Coruna is done. One year loan #afc— David Hytner (@DaveHytner) August 31, 2017
More news on Gayle can be found here.
If Lucas Perez doesn't sign for Newcastle today I'll set my son on fire— Sam (@Joselology) August 31, 2017
Lazaar actually looks to be on his way out. Does this mean we have a replacement?
Looks like Achraf Lazaar could be on his way out of Newcastle after saying his farewells to teammate Jesus Gamez at the Training Ground.— Keith Downie (@SkySports_Keith) August 31, 2017
Huge News out of Nantwich
Rafa in and out of the grounds? Story here
Reports from the Sky Sports broadcast claim that we tried to do a Gayle Swap deal
Sky claiming that #NUFC offered to take Tom Cairney in exchange for Dwight Gayle - but that Fulham said no....— Scott Wilson (@Scottwilsonecho) August 31, 2017
Targett Acquired (lol)
Now understand that Southampton's Matt Targett is on his way to the North East for a medical ahead of his move to Newcastle.— Graeme Bailey (@GraemeBailey) August 31, 2017
Freddie Woodman being pursued by another lower league club, this time it’s Wycombe
Looks like the Targett talk has received a Targett Updatte™, read all about it here.
Well scratch that because Newcastle
I understand Newcastle's loan move for Southampton's Matt Targett is OFF. In addition, Achraf Lazaar will join Benvento.— Keith Downie (@SkySports_Keith) August 31, 2017
More bad news!!
The reason why we failed...Read about it here
Understand Matt Targett wanted a 6 month loan but Newcastle wanted him for the season. That's where the talks broke down.— Keith Downie (@SkySports_Keith) August 31, 2017
Another kicker, as Perez turned down a better offer from us to return to Spain
Lucas Perez signs for Deportivo. #nufc offered better deal, but player only wanted Spain return. Tough day for toon army.— Pete Graves (@PeteGravesSky) August 31, 2017
Looks like Keith’s work here is done
Understand Newcastle are finished for business in this window, despite De Jong, Rivière, Krul, Lazaar & Hanley all leaving in the last week.— Keith Downie (@SkySports_Keith) August 31, 2017
