NUFC set to make January move for long-term target with his club now forced to sell – Report 

According to reports in Turkey, Newcastle are hoping to finally sign long-term target Garry Rodrigues in January, with Galatasaray expected to cash in on the winger due to Financial Fair Play troubles.

Rodrigues has been one of their top performers over the past year, bagging 10 goals and 11 assists, however it’s being reported that he’s now been reluctantly transfer listed.

Turkish outlet ‘Hurriyet’ claim that Galatasaray are now under pressure from Financial Fair Play (FFP) and may be forced to sell the winger in the new year – with them unable to bring in any new players unless they sell.

The story claims that both ourselves, Valencia and Villarreal are all interested, with clubs hoping to sign the winger at a ‘cut-price’ fee given Galatasaray’s need to sell.

He’s a player we’ve been regularly linked with across the past three transfer windows – with scouts believed to have watched him on several occasions – so this may be one to watch come January IF these new claims prove to be true.

I don’t see us spending big on a 27-year-old, but The Chronicle did confirm earlier this week that Benitez wants a winger with genuine pace – so a ‘cut-price’ deal for Rodrigues could appeal.

  1. If we send Penfold over now, there may be a chance that he can get it sorted by January, although with the pace we generally work at, maybe August might have been early enough?
    We’ll dither about, allowing Tortoise United to crawl in and beat us to it.
