There have been 18 Premier League signings so far this close season, including a number of players Newcastle United have been linked with.

Some of those who have agreed to join other Premier League clubs have been long running storylines, whilst others just a brief encounter.

(To feature like Sam, send in your articles for our website to [email protected] – all views those of the author etc etc)

The list below is a combination of lists published by the Express and the Star, detailing incoming players to Premier League clubs so far.

Aston Villa – Scott Sinclair (Man City), Micah Richards (Man City)

Bournemouth – Christian Atsu (Chelsea – loan) Artur Boruc (Southampton) Joshua King (Blackburn) Adam Federici (Reading)

Chelsea – Nathan (Atletico PR)

Everton – Tom Cleverley (Man Utd)

Leicester – Christian Fuchs (Schalke)

Liverpool – Adam Bogdan (Bolton), James Milner (Man City) Danny Ings (Burnley)

Man Utd – Memphis Depay (PSV)

Swansea – Andre Ayew (Marseille)

Tottenham – Kevin Wimmer (FC Koln)

Watford – Sebastian Prodi (Werder Bremen) Giedrius Arlauskis (Steaua)

West Ham – Darren Randolph (Birmingham) Pedro Obiang (Sampdoria)

From the list above, I recall definite links to a possible Newcastle move in the recent or not so recent past to: Andre Ayew, James Milner, Danny Ings, Memphis Depay, Tom Cleverley, Scott Sinclair and Micah Richards.

From that list (those previously linked with Newcastle), obviosuly Memphis Depay would have been out of our reach by this stage but I think that Ings, Ayew and Richards are all players who could potentially have been very good signings for Newcastle.

What we are all waiting for of course is the first NUFC signing of the Steve McClaren era, with claims this morning that Charlie Austin is a done deal.

The only time to really say whether it appears that Newcastle United have lost out on any player (on the list above or any that sign in the remaining eleven and a half weeks before the transfer window closes) is once we see who Mike Ashley actually allows the club to buy.

Ley’s hope we’re not kept waiting too long.

    RIchards is still a man city and villa haven’t started talks yet ? You would of thought Newcastle would of gone in for Richards who can play as a right back or as a centre half.

  • Cypres

    There haven’t been any definite links to Newcastle. All there has been is media speculation.

  • IntravenusMP

    Milner was never likely to come, he hated his time here.

    DZA187
    is he good enough though? hardly played the last couple of years and from what ive heard he’s had a mixed reception in italy

  • SGM

    Windows not even open yet.

  • v0ices

    ncncnc DZA187 he used to be good enough but years of being pushed down the pwcking order behind big momey imports have left him as a unknown quantity, still got to be better than iron mike.

  • mrkgw

    Agreed – I definitely thought that Richards would be Newcastle bound. Rather alarming to see Ayew having signed for Swansea too – what is it with the Welsh gazumping us? How much are they paying him? Bet that its a fortune therefore, what of the so called fair play?

  • fromtheheed

    Rumour has it with wages and signing on fee total is£19m – £92k a week, don”t know over how many years.Obviously he’d never have come to us. See what if he’s worth the money halfway through the season.
