New report reveals TWO reasons NUFC refused to sign Hamza Choudhury – Pathetic

Hamza Choudhury’s deadline day loan move to Newcastle broke down because they didn’t want to pay a loan fee or a high percentage of his wages, according to The Telegraph.

Contrasting reports circulated yesterday, with some claiming that the Leicester midfielder was on his way to Tyneside while others said Newcastle had ‘closed for business’ by late morning.

Now, a new piece from The Telegraph reports that the player himself and Steve Bruce were keen on bringing him in on a season-long loan – but the NUFC hierarchy were typically reluctant to pay the going rates.

Here is a snippet from Luke Edwards’ article:

Quite why the Choudhury deal could not be done has mystified staff at St James’ Park.

The player was keen to join and was pushing for the move to go through as late as Tuesday afternoon.

But Newcastle appear to have refused to pay the loan fee and a percentage of his wages even though they have reduced the wage bill from last season by around £200,000-a-week by cutting players who were not in the 25-man squad last season.

It is baffling that we would be unable to pay a slice of the player’s wages, especially considering we have sliced around £200k-a-week off our wage bill by shifting several deadwood off the books over the summer.

  1. House of Fools

    Rondon should have been fought for – Willock’s fee is being paid over 4/5 years

    So one has to ask WHAT ON EARTH DO Charmless and Bruce actually do?

    These have already fleeced the club and it’s now a direction less mess

    SHAME on Ashley, MD Charmless, Numpty Bruce = should go ASAP and don’t collect your 30 pieces of silver on the way out

  2. Five points down on last season already, will we do the double over Everton and Burnley and pick up two points against LiverpoolI? I doubt it! and that’s another 10 points down at best, making 15 points down on last season, and will take us down.
    We are desperately fragile up front, midfield has no bite, defence just getting worse.
    Can’t fault effort of players, but some are just not up to it because of age and in some cases ability.
    Ashley probably loses more at the casino, than Choudhury’s wages, in one night, just a thought!

  3. Bit pathetic comparing last yrs results. We might beat Brighton twice snap ronaldos leg and win at Man Utd and be 9 points up. You think like a ten yr old

  4. V… it will be really pathetic if we are not realistic and see where we are at now,and what’s coming along the road…. a bit like Ashley! some people need to realise we haven’t strengthened the team while others have and how lucky we have been for the last two seasons.
    Do you really believe that our luck will go on forever?

  5. Ashley clearly is seeking to repair the balance shhet following the declared 2020 results by maximising income alongside a reduction in outgoings. He has established a selling price that he doesn’t want to see eroded by increasing his loans to the club that he fears will not be repaid or diluting earnings through deals done on the back of stage payments. There is a big hole in his business model if gate receipts decline, players jump ship in January and the club gets relegated. Even if you don’t install a new kitchen in a house you are about to sell you do as a minimum keep the paintwork fresh!!

    DS.

    WTF is wrong with you? We’re 3 games in and you’ve got the world ending already?
    We’re 5 points down because we had a much better start than usual last season.
    And yes – Ashley loses more at the Casino than Choudhury’s wages in one night.
    Ashley has lost more in one night than the entire clubs weekly wage bill. He’s a billionaire! FFS.

    When will fans figure out that Newcastle United is a business and Ashley’s money does not belong to the club?

    Yes – he’s screwed us again. What is it now 27, 28 transfer windows and you still act surprised?

    So which is it? Are we paying for Willock over 4 or 5 years? Because saying both gives the impression you don’t know and are just guessing.
    How do you know we didn’t fight for Rondon?
    The only person who was going to get Rondon was Benitez, regardless of whichever club he was at.

  8. Now there’s a shocker – Charlie Bennett calling the club “pathetic”.
    He’s like a 7 year old who has learned a new word.
    “Hamza Choudhury’s deadline day loan move to Newcastle broke down because they didn’t want to pay a loan fee or a high percentage of his wages”
    While that may suit your agenda you don’t actually know that for sure, do you? You just pick the articles that suit your (tainted) argument and roll with them. After all, its only a few days since Rogers said he’d received NO offers for Choudhury, plus of course the idea that we would buy him and put him into training with Matt Ritchie.
    So you’re slagging the club off for not paying a loan fee and wages for a player whose manager says we didn’t bid for, and who wouldn’t fit into our set up unless we got rid of Ritchie?
    Yeah, that makes sense.
    And as for this assumption that we have 200K a week extra to play with – yes we knocked that off the wage bill and it might go some way to recouping the, what, 30 million we lost last season because of COVID?
    You’re a fan, I get it, but you need to steer clear of the business side of things because you are obviously clueless.
    How much of that 200K a week went to Willocks new salary – which is considerably more than we were paying him last season? It’s all very well talking about “a slice of this” and that but when you don’t mention actual numbers you just sound like a bitter fan who doesn’t actually know anything.
    Now that’s a shocker!

  9. ALL Clubs lost revenue because of Covid – that hasn’t stopped them investing in their squads – only a fool picks out NUFC and defends a flawed sporting model that’s different to EVERY other premiership club

    = THIS ISN’T your High Street store and one can’t use the same rules.

    Anyone that comes out with that of BB is transparent and like Ashley doesn’t support a Team
