Welcome to our daily rubbish Newcastle transfer news service, featuring all the players NUFCare ‘buying’ (including proposed loan deals) this summer.

We will update you each day and try to keep you abreast of all these exciting transfers that aren’t going to happen (as well as the handful that hopefully will…).

With 71 days until the transfer window closes, we have two more names to add to the running total, making a new total of 69 Newcastle have been linked with.

Today’s offerings are two centre-backs (now there’s a thought…).

Robin Knoche has been linked with a Newcastle move, the Wolfsburg centre-half playing 27 Bundesliga matches last season as the German club finished second and qualified for the Champions League. So you wouldn’t imagine the 23 year old German Under 21 international being desperate to get away, unless his club are using CL qualification to try and upgrade.

The other addition today to the running total is Aston Villa Captain Ron Vlaar.

The Dutch international has allowed his contract to run down and shown no commitment to signing another, despite the uplift under new manager Tim Sherwood.

The 30 year old would look an ideal signing for United with his leadership skills a massive bonus. However, any number of other clubs are said to be interested alongside Newcastle, including Sunderland as well as other more credible destinations.

In a recent interview in Holland though, Ron Vlaar had this to say about the future:

“I want to maximise my career and think I can go a step higher.”

Exactly where Newcastle United sit now in a player’s pecking order of clubs is anybody’s guess.

To try and keep some kind of order, the players are listed in alphabetical order by surname, then first/other names, the club they are/were at when Newcastle were linked with them, then finally the club they have ended up signing for (if any).

Please let us know of any that we have missed out as we go along and especially if you notice if any on the list actually sign for a club and we haven’t added that information.
