NUFC receive new Jarrod Bowen boost from Hull – Deal now set to hinge on three key factors?

Hull boss Grant McCann has admitted that Newcastle target Jarrod Bowen could be sold this month, if a new contract is not agreed upon.

It’s been reported for some time that the Championship winger is one of Steve Bruce’s top targets, but two other factors have also been made clear up until now – Hull’s reluctance to sell and our reluctance to pay their £20m plus asking price.

Now, it seems Hull are ready to accept defeat and cash in if he refuses to sign a new deal:

One other key factor will of course be what we’re prepared to pay should he refuse a new deal – and the fee Hull are going to demand should he refuse to sign.

That could be a big issue given we’ve clearly not been willing to pay their previous asking pice of £20m up until now, however McCann’s latest admission suggests they may end up accepting a knock-down fee in they final week of the window.

The Telegraph revealed a few days ago that we were offering ‘£12m plus add ons’ – which seems unlikely to be enough whatever happens with his contract – but I can see us striking a deal next week if ourselves and Hull meet in the middle.

Bruce is clearly VERY keen, Ashley seems more likely to back him after their ‘positive’ transfer talks, Bowen is believed to be interested in making the move and Hull are now hinting they’ll be ready to sell if he doesn’t sign.

If he refuses a new deal, let’s hope the offer we make is a fair one if and when Hull reduce their demands. Do that and I think Bruce may finally get his man.

  1. Oh come on! ‘Ashley is more likely to back him’ since when??? Please please tell me you dont believe that sh!t?

    I sadi it from Day one when Fat Mike took over, he is interested in him and him only. We look like we will probably survive, he will lift his 125m + Add ons at end of season and he will be heappy, sell Dubravka and a couple of others in the transfer window for maybe 70m and spend 35 on gmable type players, its been happening for years and years and years and years and years…………..a lepoard and all that!!!

    It will be a shock of huge proportions if he gives Brewsy the money to buy anyone this window after the 50+m he outlayed in summer.

  2. Where are you getting the 50m from we sold perez for 35m bought Joe and stmax for 55ish. The fat one always makes out he spends but the net spend is rarely more than **** all.
