NUFC can now sign striker with 77 Premier League goals on a free after sudden exit is confirmed

Former Newcastle United target Daniel Sturridge is now available to sign on a free after his contract at Trabzonspor was terminated by mutual consent today.

Sturridge bagged 7 goals and 4 assists in 16 appearances in Turkey, helping them to the top of the Super Lig before it was confirmed this morning he’d left the club just 8 months after he penned a three-year deal.

After Steve Bruce insisted that a striker wasn’t signed in January because no player emerged who was ‘better than what we’ve already got’, it’s almost inevitable that we’ll be linked with an out-of-window move for the 30-year-old goal scorer – and it could make some sense.

It may stink of desperation, but at a time where we’re struggling for goals after failing to find the net in our last 4 league games, we are desperate!

Dwight Gayle showed glimpses over the weekend, showing good movement and energy up top, but with his goalscoring record at Premier League level in doubt, Andy Carroll struggling to get fit and Joelinton being moved out wide over the weekend, a move for Sturridge until the end of the season wouldn’t be the worst move in the world.

His best days may be behind him, but he’s still only 30, he’s shown signs of a slight revival in Turkey and he’s bagged almost 80 Premier League goals in little over 200 games.

With us looking more and more like being dragged back into a relegation battle after winning one of our last 10, is this a short-term solution we should be considering?

  1. Definitely when fit his movement is brilliant and finishing is much better than what we have. But doubt Ashley will let Bruce go for him


  2. So, don’t allow the signing of the goal scoring 30 year old you do have and then replace him with a £40 million colossal flop. Who thinks Fatty has the sense to sign anyone like Sturridge? He’ll see only outlay with no profit potential as he doesn’t give a flying F about the football success of the club or team he owns.


  3. Let’s go down and stay down until the parasite is gone nobody’s boycotting in great numbers so it’s the only way you’ve only got your selves to blame for keep going and feeding the fat ******* you’re money


  4. we cannot sign him we have given our 25 group to PL sorry to bust the bubble its a no go,only player you are allowed to sign are goalkeeper IF you dont have one through injurys to all your keepers


  5. No brainer! But it
    Won’t happen! Fatso doesn’t do the obvious! Goals are what we need to stay up and he would definitely get goals!


  6. We cant sign players who wernt released after transfer window closed so get you’re facts right


  7. Newcastle have played boring, negative football for the past 2.5 seasons. If Bruce lets them loose from the Benitez chains I am confident they shall get goals and move to Premier League safety even with the less than prolific strikers we have already.

    True, people have no clue, MLS for Sturbridge, InterMiami?


  9. I mean all well and good. But I’m sure he’s banned from football until 17th June for some betting related stuff.
