New report claims NUFC made January offer for Man City star – Where to begin with this one..

According to the Irish Sun, Newcastle were one of several Premier League clubs who had a January loan bid rejected for top Man City talent Phil Foden – but we HIGHLY doubt it.

Why? Because we had already used up our two allocated domestic loan slots on Rondon and Kenedy – meaning we would’ve been unable to sign any English-based player on a temporary deal.

If Rafa had planned to either A) terminate Kenedy’s loan deal or B) sign Salomon Rondon permanently then a loan move for Foden would’ve been very much possible and could’ve made sense, but I struggle to see how we were ever in a position to make this move given options A or B never genuinely seemed on the cards last month.

Foden is a hugely talented attacking midfielder with a massive future ahead of him and could’ve been seen as a cut-price alternative incase we didn’t land Almiron – although it seems more likely to me that this is a load of rubbish.
