Transfer Latest: Deadline Day Round-up

Published

deadline day

Here are all the latest Newcastle United transfer rumours this Deadline Day.

 

Incoming:

 

Youri Tielemans

The Belgium midfielder has just 1-year left on his current contract at the King Power Stadium and Leicester City are willing to cash in for a cut price of £25,000,000 this Deadline Day.

The Magpies’ have been accredited with an interest in the 25-year-old throughout the summer, as well as current Premier League leaders Arsenal, who are also thought to still be keen on a move for the midfielder.

Tielemans started in Leicester City’s 2-1 defeat to a 10-man Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Lucas Moura

According to Football Insider, Newcastle are exploring the possibility of a late move for Spurs winger Lucas Moura on loan for the rest of the season.

The Brazilian has struggled to break into Antonio Conte’s side this season as he has played just 12 minutes of football so far. Dejan Kulusevski, Richarlison and Heung-Min Son are all currently ahead of him in the pecking order at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Lucas Moura can be utilised in a variety of forward positions such as; centre-forward, right-wing and attacking-midfield.

Conor Gallagher

Another central midfielder linked with a move to St James’ Part is Chelsea’s, Conor Gallagher. It’s been reported that Gallagher will be allowed to leave on loan this Deadline Day, with question marks raised over his playing time at Stamford Bridge.

The Magpies’ are currently in a five-way race for the England international as Crystal Palace, Everton, Aston Villa and West Ham are all admirers of the 22-year-old.

Gallagher won Crystal Palace’s player of the season award last campaign as he impressed with 8 Premier League goals from midfield.

Central midfield is clearly an area Eddie Howe would like to address before 11pm this evening, with injuries to the likes of Jonjo Shelvey and Bruno Guimarães.

 

Outgoing

 

Martin Dúbravka

Journalist Fabrizio Romano has reported that Martin Dúbravka will be the new Manchester United backup goalkeeper.

The former Newcastle No.1 will join Manchester United on an initial season-long loan and the Red Devils’ will hold an option to buy for a fee of £6,000,000.

Dúbravka’s imminent departure means that Toon will be left with Nick Pope, Karl Darlow and Mark Gillespie in the goalkeeping department.

Matty Longstaff

Academy graduate Matty Longstaff is set to join League One side Barnsley on a season-long loan.

Longstaff will look to build on his successful season with Mansfield Town in League Two last campaign.

Football Insider have reported that Barnsley will hold an option to buy the 22-year-old at the end of the loan deal.

The midfielder’s contract at The Toon is due to expire at the end of the season.

Federico Fernández

Argentinian centre-back Federico Fernández is close to joining La Liga side Elche on a season-long loan.

The 33-year-old has failed to make a single start since Eddie Howe joined the club back in November last year.

The defender’s contract expires at the end of the season. However, the club do hold the option to extend it for a further year if they choose to do so.

Newcastle target rejects Everton move following £45m bid.

Published

on

Newcastle united - St James Park

Everton have made a £40million bid with £5m in add-ons to sign Connor Gallagher from Chelsea.

This comes after Newcastle completed the signing of Anthony Gordon, the club’s second most expensive transfer behind Alexander Isak.

Everton received an initial fee of £40m plus add-ons that could increase the deal to £45m.

The Toffees currently sit 19th in the Premier League and are looking to reinvest the money from the Gordon deal to sign much-needed players under newly appointed manager Sean Dyche. 

But, multiple sources have reported today that Gallagher is not actively pushing for a move and has no intention of going to Goodison Park. However, with Chelsea having met the record-breaking €120m release clause for World Cup winner Enzo Fernandez, Gallagher may be forced to leave the club if the transfer is complete.

This leaves Newcastle an option as the player would prefer a move to a top-six club.

This morning, Eddie Howe said, “We’ll see what we can do to try & bring a player in. There’s no guarantees. In terms of permanent signings, it will be very difficult. We’ll look at a potential loan. But it’s got to be the right player & not one for the sake of it”.

Due to financial fair play, the only way Newcastle could sign the player is through a loan, with an obligation to buy the player for at least £45m, the same price they paid for Anthony Gordon.

Gallagher has been playing regular Premier League football over the last two seasons. Since returning to his parent club Chelsea, the 22-year-old has been linked with a move away to numerous Premier League clubs.

Last season he was named Crystal Palace’s Player of the Season by their fans. He also won the Player of the Month award twice, Goal of the Month once, and was awarded the Young Player of Year at the 2022 London Football Awards.

In the same season, he made 36 appearances scoring eight goals and registering three assists that earned Palace a 12th-place finish, one point behind Newcastle.

Transfer News: Newcastle Sign Everton Winger Anthony Gordon In 45m Deal

Published

Newcastle agree deal for Gordon

Newcastle United have agreed to sign Everton winger Anthony Gordon for an initial fee of £40,000,000, which could rise to £45,000,000 with add-ons

Sky Sports understands that personal terms between Newcastle United and Gordan’s representatives are still ongoing, but both parties are confident of reaching an agreement.

The Magpies’ were interested in bringing Gordon to St James’ Park in the summer. However, both clubs were far apart on valuations for the player.

The 21-year-old has failed to attend training at Finch Farm for the last three days after making it clear he wants to move away from Goodison Park.

Chelsea were interested in bringing Gordon to Stamford Bridge in the summer and were willing to pay up to £60,000,000 for the wide-man’s services. However, Everton were reluctant to let their talisman leave before the start of the 2022/2023 Premier League season.

Gordon has scored just 3 goals in 16 Premier League appearances (12 starts) this season for the struggling Toffees, who currently sit second bottom of the table.

That said, the former Preston North End loanee had his best campaign last season, playing a major part in Everton’s Premier League survival.

The Everton academy graduate had 6 goal involvements in 35 Premier League games (25 starts) last season, which was the first season he had a consistent run of games.

It’s clear that Gordon has a significant amount of potential, and with Eddie Howe at the helm, Newcastle could be getting a very exciting player.

We have seen an unbelievable transformation in many players’ performances since Eddie Howe took charge in November 2021, with the most obvious transformation being Joelinton’s positional change.

The Liverpool-born winger can play in several forward positions, which is the type of player Eddie Howe has been keen to add during the January window, especially after Chris Wood’s loan departure to Nottingham Forest.

Joelinton is currently being deployed as a left-winger, with Allan Saint-Maximin in the process of regaining match fitness.

The addition of Gordon could see Joelinton be moved back to his preferred position as a box-to-box midfielder. This would see one of Sean Longstaff or Joe Willock drop out of the eleven, with Bruno Guimarães making that number 6 role untouchable.

Four days remain of the January transfer window, and it is yet to be seen if Anthony Gordon is the only player The Toon are adding to their ranks.
