Transfer talk – a round up of today’s NUFC transfer gossip – 04/08/2017

Today’s round up of all NUFC related transfer talk:

  • Sky Sports report Newcastle have had a bid rejected for Stoke City striker Joselu – despite The Chronicle’s claims that NUFC are yet to make a bid and are instead in talks.
  • As well as Spanish striker Joselu, Rafa Benitez is also believed to be in talks to sign fellow countryman and West Ham goalkeeper Adrian (Chronicle).
  • Siem De Jong has opened up about his freak injuries during his time at Newcastle, revealing he now feels better than ever and has every intention of staying and becoming a success at St. James’ Park.

  • Any deal to sign long-standing target Andre Gray looks to be diminishing, with Burnley set to keep a hold of the striker unless their £20m asking price is met (Daily Mail).
  • Moussa Sissoko’s Spurs nightmare looks set to come to an end, but not in the way he may have imagined, with the former NUFC midfielder looking set for a loan move to Turkish side Trabzonspor.
  • Newcastle have been given a boost in their pursuit of out-of-favour Arsenal forward Lucas Perez, after the Spaniard handed in a transfer request – NUFC prefer a loan deal with an obligation to buy however, with Arsenal holding out for £13.4m (Talksport).
