Callum Wilson - Newcastle Sign Striker From Bournemouth

Recommended Posts

Pretty sure earlier this summer Bournemouth valued him at approx £40m?

@Harvsky do you reckon Ritchie might be interested in going back down south to Bournemouth so Newcastle are willing to use him in a deal?

He'd probably go if forced.

£40m for a 1 in 3 striker who turns 29 this season. Fuck me. I'd give them £16m tops :ph34r:

One thing being touted is that we'll bring in Ryan Fraser on a free to replace Ritchie.

I’m surprised he hasn’t already signed with a new club tbh. Yeah he was a bit shit last season (Bournemouth were as a whole though), but in the years before that he was one of their standout players imo.

Maybe a bit of agent gamesmanship for the best offer?

They obviously have a taste for relegation. Next season is going to be brutal for Newcastle.

You mean fit and proper Mike Ashley is going to take us down for the same number of times as we had been relegated in all the post war years before him?

I think Ashley is happy if you finish 17th, there's no ambition or interest there for him in Newcastle.

Without doubt the case for the last decade. The asset price doesn't go down if the club is in the Premier League and it barely goes up if it finishes 7th. Spreadsheet champions every year.

Apparently he wants to be closer to Aberdeen, but he'll still have to get on a plane. Aberdeen is about a 4 or 5 hour drive from Newcastle.

Maybe no flights from Southampton to Aberdeen and he had to drive to London first?

There is one airline, Eastern I think, that flies to Aberdeen from Southampton. It's a pretty limited service mind.

Sure the Newcastle to Aberdeen is probably limited too. Although a few oil rig related jobs based on Tyneside so maybe more frequent.

Surprised he didn't just sign for Aberdeen. Same standard-ish

Bournemouth fan I know hates him, would sell him for anything over 10 mill. Thinks he’s vastly overrated

Not great with injuries either. Probably better off spending more to get Josh King.

Apparently Bournemouth want '£17m fixed fee'. Was £40m reportedly earlier in the window!

That's us out. Can't compete. Won't compete. :ph34r:

That wouldn't surprise me they have done that. Brentford seem to be moving the goalposts with Ollie Watkins and pricing everyone out of a move for him. Villa were heavily rumoured to be signing him but must have had enough of the nonsense.

Given he is better than anything Villa currently have, I dont think that's a bad price. Can't believe Newcastle won't pay that when all they have sitting in the wings is Joelinton, Gayle and the Japanese lad.

I think King is the much better player - a lot more versatile too

Gayle is out for at least 3 months so the situation is even more critical. Andy Carroll will probably start next week.

Jesus. Beggers can't be choosers.

£15m for Wilson in your current predicament is a no brainer for me.

I'd love to be a fly on the wall in that boardroom and hear why you can't justify that but will happily spend more wages on a defender you don't need.

They might get there in the end but they'll um and argh for as long as possible.

Mike Ashley model in all his businesses is simply "can I get it cheaper"

Yeah word is that we’re looking for around £28m for Watkins and Villa aren’t buying so looking at Wilson...one of those “meh” signings I think

Moving to Newcastle increases chances of playing for England?

Interesting.
