£30m release clauses made public in the event of relegation – Two deals of interest for NUFC?

As reported by the Daily Mail, relegation release clauses could see Raphinha, Kalvin Phillips and Patrick Bamford leave for just £30million this summer should Leeds United go down.

The Yorkshire club are bang in trouble and in serious danger of going down, with their 2-1 defeat at Arsenal followed by a big win at Leicester for Everton – results which leave Leeds third bottom on 34 points.

Relegation could therefore work very much in Newcastle’s favour, with the likes of Phillips and Raphinha playing in positions many would argue we need big improvements in.

We’ve actually been credited with an interest in Phillips in recent months, while Raphinha would be a dream signing as we look to add more goals down our right wing.

With a mass exodus expected on Tyneside and first-team investment needed in a few key areas, upgrading the likes of Jacob Murphy and Isaac Hayden with the two Premier League stars would be certain to go down well with supporters.

However, as the price in the clause is so low, it is very likely that there will be stiff competition for the pair of internationals and it will no doubt rise higher than the original £30million.

  1. The way Raphina has played the last few games 30m would be good. But we do have bigger problems than that. Will we come straight back up when we go down. Not with this team. Also I am not feeling it with Jesse Marsh we need to bring in a manager with grit. But most of all Radz and Victor have let us down badly. I remember 2004 and that was painful.

  2. I love to watch Leeds don’t know what it is about them very entertaining team shame they find themselves in this position I would rather Everton go down if I’m honest, I also wouldn’t mind us trying to convince these two to join Nufc but don’t think either will choose us over the really big teams that will no doubt be in for them
