Newcastle have €6m bid ‘accepted’ for Swedish international – Report

According to leading Belgian outlet HLN, Newcastle United have now had a €6m (£5.3m) bid accepted for Anderlecht striker Isaac Kiese Thelin.

The story claims that the 6ft 2′ striker missed training yesterday as a move away is ‘imminent’, however they report that we are not the only one who’ve had a bid accepted – with Lokomotiv Moscow also in for the Swedish international.

Here’s confirmation of these reports from The Chronicle’s Mark Douglas:

The 26-year old – who’s played 24 times for his country – managed 19 goals and 5 assists in the Belgian League last season whilst on loan with Waasland-Beveren, however his career record stands at just 47 goals and 24 assists in 190 appearances.

It remains to be seen if there’s any truth in this (although HLN are deemed to be pretty reliable as one of Belgium’s leading outlets), however this would strike of desperation and the sort of bargain basement signing we were making this time last summer.

Here’s him in action:

  1. A downgrade on The Hoss and even a downgrade on Riviere. A typical Ashley/Penfold player. Give him a 5 year contract, then we can add him to the list of players we struggle to loan out each summer, even when we loan him for nothing and pay his wage.
    At least we’re consistent. 😉


  2. It’s about time that the powers that be, namely the FA ,had a real look at what Ashley is and has done to Newcastle,How can they sit back and watch his systematic destruction of this proud football club.The FA in its wisdom introduced a FIT AND PROPER person rule,and yet Ashley has repeatedly lied cheated and asset striped newcastle over the last 11 years,he spends nothing and takes all the revenue that comes to the club,free advertising for his TAT shops promotion money tv money,Repeatedly embarrassing a manager of RAFA standing with his lies on open tv,Rafa can have avery penny,Don’t they think that this shows them in a very poor light,Ashley is sticking two Fingers up at the whole system and getting away with it,So come on the powers that be show that you do mean FIT and PROPER person and do something to stop this disgraceful and disgusting FARCE from contin uing, as it will only end in disaster,you can only push people so far before they say enough is enough.Ashley do the right thing back Rafa or go. 😈

    Totally agree I’ve asked this question before. I’ve also asked how did Liverpool force out their previous owners.
