Newcastle offered Chelsea midfielder & three others if we agree to pay big loan fees – Report

In his latest piece for i news, Mark Douglas has revealed a few expensive loan deals that could become available to Newcastle United in the final 10 days of the transfer window.

He reports that Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has been offered our way by intermediaries, with the likes of Georginio Wijnaldum, Juventus’ Aaron Ramsey and Tottenham’s Dele Alli also likely to be available if ‘big loan fees’ are paid.

While a move to bring Wijnaldum back to St James’ Park would be an exciting one, it’s interesting to see Loftus-Cheek mentioned as a potential option.

This is the first time he’s been linked with a potential January switch, despite us often being credited with an interest in signing the 25-year-old on loan during Rafa Benitez’s time on Tyneside.

The 6ft 3′ ball-carrying midfielder was actually handed a run of starts by Thomas Tuchel over the festive period and often performed well when called upon, however he’s not featured for the Blues since a mid-December draw with Everton.

Given the lack of power, presence or dynamism in our engine room at present, he could be a brilliant loan signing, with Douglas predicting that the loan market will suddenly become a fruitful one in the final few days of the transfer window:

They [Newcastle] are by no means the only team experiencing issues of players being available and that has led agents and executives to predict the loan market may be the way for selling clubs to find value in the latter days of the window.

Georginio Wijnaldum, Delle Alli, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Aaron Ramsey are among the internationals whose names are being circulated around clubs by intermediaries with big loan fees being touted.

This may well be another reason why we were trying to sign Jesse Lingard on a permanent deal, as we may be keen to leave our two domestic loan slots open heading into the final week of the window?

A year after failing to sign RLC, Newcastle's midfield still needs sorting

  1. I’d love Loftus Cheek, especially with a loan to buy if we stay up. I reckon he could do the job Joelinton is doing on the left side of the midfield but on the right.
    Both big physical players who can put their foot in but also run with the ball.

    Of those listed above hed defo be my choice.


  2. i’d take Loftus Cheek in a heartbeat, pass on the others….. Imagine him and Joe together……


  3. would take RLC from chelsea on loan, and maybe lingard also.
    i think the owners plan has went up in smoke, and are just looking at anyone they can get.
    no plan A or B from staverley.


  4. I was expecting this at the last days of the window. The problem we have with the team. If am the Coach I should have made fast business on the players who are much needed. For example the defense. Sevile were playing a slow ball on us. Look what happened at the last minute. Teams from the premier league begin to appear because they Saw success. Let the coach look for better players and loan them even though it is expensive but it is better than relegation. The coach need to speed up. Let him don’t last minute.
