NUFC reporter makes Saint-Maximin & N’Soki claim – Bruce hopeful but has one ‘serious’ concern

According to the Daily Mail, Steve Bruce will be ‘seriously concerned’ about the strength of his squad if Newcastle fail to secure a minimum of THREE new signings before next Thursday’s transfer deadline.

Craig Hope reports that ‘progress has been slow’ in our pursuit of Nice winger Allan Saint-Maximin and PSG left-back Stanley N’Soki, but states Bruce is still remaining ‘hopeful’ on that front…’for now’.

The North-East writer also confirms our interest in Amiens right back Emil Krafth, but concedes that proposed deals for the French duo are taking time – much to our frustration with just 8 days of the transfer window remaining.

Here’s a snippet from his latest piece for the Mail:

‘Progress has been in slow in their pursuit of PSG left back Stanley N’Soki and Nice winger Allan Saint-Maximin, while Amiens right back Emil Krafth is also a target.

‘Bruce remains hopeful, for now, but failure to get at least three players in would leave him seriously concerned about the strength of the squad going into the new season.

Considering we’ve lost Rondon and Perez, had months to plan for this and have plenty money left over to spend, it’s absolutely criminal that we’re now haggling over two key deals with just a week left to do business.

Losing Rafa was bad enough, but leaving our squad depleted and lacking in quality or depth ahead of the new season would be asking for trouble.

  1. Don’t you know that we’ve recently smashed our transfer record? That should be more than enough to convince the sheep to continue lining the FCB’s pockets and perpetuating this misery!

  2. Yeah wake up Bruce ! You ain’t getting any of the aforementioned! The ignorant football experts will say yeah but mike just smashed the clubs transfer record for joey ! But we let Rondon go ! Sold Perez for £30 million! And possibly joselu going so really spent **** all again ! Gonna be a long dark season ahead just gotta hope that there’s 3 teams worse than us ! Which I think shouldn’t be a problem but they will all have bigger squads to draw from!
