Newcastle United want to loan Manchester United’s 19 year old striker James Wilson next season according to reports today.

With only two Premier League starts this season and a number of cameos from the bench, the Old Trafford outfit have made clear their intention to send the forward out to gain more experience next season.

Their preference is another Premier League club so James  Wilson can get experience at the highest level possible, with now various media have reported that Newcastle have registered their interest in taking the promising forward on a year’s loan.

Louis Van Gaal rates the player highly and has told the Manchester United owners he wants to keep the player long-term and backed him for a new and improved contract.

Newcastle have history in this department having loaned Giuseppe Rossi from Manchester United back in 2006 when Michael Owen was out injured, with only Obafemi Martins and Shola Ameobi to call on.

However, Newcastle only gave the American born and future Italian international three starts in the Premier League, with the player recalled and sent to Parma on loan instead in January 2007.

Having already used loan signing Loic Remy to help get Newcastle through another season it looks as though Mike Ashley could continue on this route to budget survival, despite the disastrous loand sof Luuk de Jong and Facundo Ferreyra.

    To paraphrase Bob from BlackAdder goes forth, what the lad probably said was: “I want to see how a premier league club is run soooo badly”.

    LVG then got straight on the phone to John (I worked with Sir Bobby Robson) Carver and said: “I´ve got just the player for you” !!!

    £60 million in the summer??? Never gonna happen! More of the same, what on earth are we doing looking at loaning this kid for. Spend some money you thieving fat oaf !!!

    PeterRobson  And he will have come to the right place . .

    A Premier League club hasn’t been run this badly since Mike Ashley (Billionaire) turned up and bought Newcastle United and decided to make a handsome profit . .

    Those running our club are complete mugs. Why would we want these loan deals – they offer no benefit to us long term. Up the ante with this buoycott – force the parasites from our club once and for all. Otherwise, the demise will continue.

    Why help with the development of anther Premier League team’s young talent? Where in the pecking order does that leave Adam Armstrong? Fools the lot of them.

  • michaelhodg67

    This alone tells you how the summer transfer window is going to go loans and cheap imports more of the same shat boycott every game till fcb is gone

  • David Grey

    Not exactly well established prem striker is he. NUFC on the cheap again

  • amacdee

    Yeah right. When there were up and coming starlets from Chelski, Mancs and Arsenal looking for a season out to help improve their game by playing regular football, NOT ONE OF THEM CHOSE NUFC with the clowns in charge of coaching/development. Lukaku went to West Brom and Everton, Moses off to Liverpool and Stoke, Wilshere at Bolton. 

    We got Ferreyra ;-D

  • GToon

    Why would he want to come to us? We only play 19 games and then give up and lose the last 19. How would that help him develop. He’d be better off at one of the promoted clubs. At least they’d play him in his right position, compete for 38 games + cups and try and win rather than avoid defeat.

    aye Man U rejects just what we need

  • PhilYare

    f**k off ashley

  • DownUnderMag

    Yes, just what we need, another untested player…oh but it’s OK, he’s cheap! Never mind playing the likes of Armstrong, let’s give other teams youth players a game here and neglect our own!
