Player keen to complete NUFC move – but club feel asking price is ‘too high’ – Reporter

According to Alan Nixon, Swedish right-back Emil Krafth is keen to complete a move to Newcastle United – but the club are refusing to pay Amiens’ asking price.

Considering Nixon claimed in a recent piece for the Sun that the Ligue 1 side were hoping to receive in excess of £2m for the 24-year-old right-back, this really does sound like classic Mike Ashley!

Here’s what he’s had to say during his latest post on the NUFC transfer front:

Nixon initially reported in a Saturday night ‘exclusive‘ (see it here) that we were trying to push through a £1m move for the Swedish international, but it seems Amiens have no interest in selling the full-back at that price – and rightly so in this day and age!

Although a move for Krafth would just be to give us another option at right-back, this penny pinching approach stinks of our recent moves to Allan Saint-Maximin and Stanley N’Soki.

Why? Because it’s another deal that involves a player keen to sign and a reasonable asking price, yet we have found a way to delay what should be a straight forward transfer by haggling over a fee.

We may live in a world where prices have gotten out hand, but this does not apply here, with our approach seeming all the more baffling given we do not have time on our side.

The window shuts a week on Thursday, Mike. Stop messing about.

  1. Ashley and Charnley at it again. Where is the Money you said Steve Bruce can have. You spend 40 million out of the ?90 Million that leaves 50 Million and you will not spend 2 Million on a Player who wants to come to Newcastle. Fat C–t Ashley needs to get the F–k out of Newcastle.


  2. Maybe Bruce can ask for a whip round at the Arsenal game. I am sure the SDFC fans can spare 25 quid each.


  3. Surprised anyone still has any trust left in the management from the fcb down to Steve I’m not a puppet bruce, like everyone one else i would love to know where has all the money gone? Tax bill? When will supporters realise nothing will change while the fcb owns our club, perfect opportunity to show how we feel,first televised home game boycott boycott boycott ashleyoot
