Free Transfer 11 Mike Ashley Could Bring To Newcastle

8 years ago

There have been details of the players released this summer from all 20 Premier League clubs and it makes interesting reading to say the least.

Below is a possible free transfer 11 you could have if you were to not spend a penny in transfers and sell off your current team to pay for all signing on and agent fees. Now I admit this team would be a) Old and b) High in wages. However, we don’t spend any money and we have made shed loads from last season.

Driving to the Toon?

Would this NUFC squad made up of free transfers get us to the top 10 finish ‘target’ next season?

Costel Pantilimon

Liam Ridgewell

Rio Ferdinand

Joleon Lescott

Ashley Cole

Gareth Barry

Frank Lampard

Steve Sidwell

Samuel Eto’o

Shola Ameobi (Get him back)

Matthew Etherington


Subs: Mark Schwarzer, Jon Arne Riise, Mahamoud Diarra, Joe Cole, Nathan Delfuenso, Matty Fryatt, Nicklas Bendtner

Manager: Michael Laudrup

This is a squad (and manager) that could all be brought in for a transfer fee of zero and be lined up for the first game of next season. Judging by the diabolical end to last season, if Ashley wants a fire sale he could do.
