NUFC agree £6.5m fee for Erdinç.

Fee agreed for Erdinc?
It would appear that Newcastle and Paris Saint-Germain have finally agreed a fee for Turkish striker Mevlüt Erdinç if reports in the Sunday press are to be believed.

The fee is said to be £6.5 million which is less that what previously speculated bids had been for.

Negotiations have been going on between the clubs for weeks now but with no end in sight it had appeared that a deal would be hard to conclude. However, if true, the sign of an agreement will hopefully signal the beginning of the end of this transfer saga, with the end being that Erdinç ends up at St James’ Park for the start of the new season.

There have been many rumours over why the deal has taken so long to get anywhere. From a change of management at the Paris club, to the player not wanting to come, to agent interference, to the alleged presence of a loyalty bonus payable in August placing a spanner in the works, we’ve pretty much heard it all.

I won’t go into too much detail about the player as, quite simply, we’ve all talked about him often enough over the summer, looked at his stats, his videos, and so on, so it seems kind of pointless doing it again.



What I will say is that if we can pull it off then we will have improved our front line with the signing of the 24-year-old as he looks as though he can finish, has a bit of pace, and a trick or two. Plus he seems to be highly rated by Graham Carr, and to be fair he hasn’t really let us down yet has he?

However a word of caution if I may? Remember what day it is? Yes, that’s right – Sunday. Because of that I’ll be taking this with liberal sprinklings of salt and will wait to see if anything concrete develops before getting too excited about it.

If true though, it would be a good move in my opinion.

  4. I must admit Toonsy I was a little disapointed with your addicts are losers craic last night. If you ever have addicts in your family I hope you show more compassion and understanding than u did last night, nobody is beyond help m8.. thats all…

    Aye, would be a good signing if tru… 🙂

  5. I think PSG have accepted a lower fee so we pay his loyalty bonus at the same time keeping his wages low with bonus incentives.
    Not sure he is any better than ameobi tho 😕
    :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    At least you have had your crack waxed in time for the grand baring of the arse Bobby 😆 😆

    Toonsy is not well fella. I think he’s an ex plonky, druggie and Japanese slave. He’s had a disturbed background which distorts his views on those who are suffering.
    He hates every single Liverpool fan, anyone who is an addict no matter their circumstance and anyone who gets on his bus., 😆 😆 😆

    “nobody is beyond help m8.”

    Absolutely, I agree, and it wasn’t that what was my point although in a rather ham-fisted way it sort of was. My point being are that there are those that are addicted who can be helped (which is fair play and I respect them greatly for beating whatever it is), and there are those that can’t be helped, like Winehouse and money others throughout history. I always got the sense that she didn’t want to change which is a shame, but ultimately change starts with yourself kind of thing.

  9. Mind you, it got a few bites and people are still chomping at it now. Woo hoo hoo

    well done m8, if thats your mission to get bites by calling addicts loser..good on yer..

    addicts come in all shapes and sizes m8, regardless of talent, money etc..

    My wifes sister is an alcoholic, beautiful looking girl, sincere and smart, unfortunately she was sexually abused of her peers from the age of 2 til 13 which has left her totally fucked up…but aye perhaps she was a loser at 2 when she didnt stop the shadowy figure in her bedroom..

    shame, you seem quite intelligent, just shows….

    enjoy your brownie bite points.. this will be my last post on here..

  10. Erdinc is terrible, its an absolutely awful signing if this is supposed to be Andy Carroll’s replacement! He needs too many touches for the English game, he will be another Guivarch. Gutted!

  11. Woke up at 5 on a Sunday morning to see a very heartless display.Ruined my day and along with that a well deserved break. The only people who seemed like they cared were Colo, Tavernier and Vuckic and Abeid when they came on.Am totally fine with losses in friendlies but its the lack of effort that drives me crazy.

    And does anyone think BA’s style of play is almost identical to Amoebi?

    And any idea why Marveaux didn’t play yesterday mates?

  12. They were saying last week that the clubs had agreed a fee but his agent wasnt getting the cut he wanted.
    Is that likely to still be the same or has the agent met with an untimely accident?
    Maybe he was an addict and just didn’t have the willpower to stick with it 😈

      (Quote)

  13. Haven’t seen him like, but by all accounts young Abeid seems like a canny player, one for the future. Well done wor lot for wangling him to the toon I say…

  14. [email protected]…I share your fears mate, hopefully he will come good, 6,5 million quid is a lot of cash.

  15. Formation 4-2-3-1 Ba and who off? That is the question, will we pay that much for a player that will not start, or will we push Benny out wide maybe. Its a nice problem to have though don’t get me wrong!!

  16. Toonsy,

    Think you were a bit unfair with the addicts thing

    I have a mate who has twenty odd thousand pounds in gambling debts, cant give up gambling, drugs, smoking or drinking, and blames it all on his “addictive personality”.

    He is not weak willed.

    He’s a dick!

    There’s a difference.

  30. This has got to be b0ll0cks really. Hasn’t he already said he doesn’t want to come to the Toon about fawa times anyway?

      (Quote)

  31. I’ve heard that everything was agreed with us but his agent was holding things up. Now we’ve bypassed him and gone to the club to agree a fee. Dunno how true it is though.

      (Quote)

  32. …well here’s hoping Toonsy. I know agents can be a proper pain in the arse like. Like most rumours though, it’s usually these fkers who spread them to stoke up bids. Although I know very little about Erding all the media hype has made me think he’s good! Shame we missed out on Gervinho like, looks the real deal. 😡

  33. Mark – I’m sorry if my viewpoint upsets. I hope it doesn’t drive to you drug abuse or something other addictive. I also notice you completely disregarded all of my other posts about it, about people helping themselves, trigger points, etc.

    If you can’t at least respect my right to my own opinion then fair enough chap. I’ll not beg for you to continue to post as you’ve already shown you can single out individual areas of posts to try and skew a view.

    TTFN 🙂

  34. Bought the Sunday Sun today, small articles on NUFC but just re hashed garbage by Lee Ryder, pages are dominated by chief sports writer Mark Douglas who is on tour with the mackems and as such is conducting a vomit inducing love in with Brucie baby.

  35. dont get why bobby moncur is sugar coating the £35millon question, basically we need goals , i know its only friendlies but we aint put 1 past a yank yet! abeid looks like he is going to be the best signing out the lot.

  37. Lua Lua was just loaned to Brighton right? Just in the people today they’ve got him listed as a £1.2m purchase for them wonder if ashley is pulling the wool over our eyes : ❓

  38. No, wait, forget Erdinc.
    Breaking news.
    The toon are in for Gameiro and they’ve agreed a fee.
    His agent tried to hold it up by getting him signed to another club, but Newcastle don’t care because they think any news of being linked to striker is enough to fool the sheeple.
    They are just waiting to see if he will agree terms or if he is really greedy and wants more than minimum wage.

  39. Pootle – Are you suggesting the likes of Hatem Ben Arfa and Yohan Cabaye gave up Champions League football to sign for lower wages? Really?
