The Nicolai Jorgensen transfer saga continues.

The 27 year old Danish international said to be inching towards a transfer to Newcastle United.

De Telegraaf are now reporting that Newcastle have upped their bid to £15m but that Feyenoord have told them once again that £20m is the asking price.

The Dutch club’s Manager, Giovanni van Bronckhorst, admits that they are making plans to cover a potential departure of Nicolai Jorgensen and Director of Football, Martin Van Geel, is going through the manager’s list of possible successors.

However, Feyenoord have already brought in fans’ favourite Robin van Persie this month, the striker left the club in 2004 when moving to Arsenal and has now returned.

Van Persie made his second debut for Feyenoord in midweek, coming on for the final 10 minutes as they only managed a draw with Utrecht, the clubs fifth and sixth in the table.

Nicolai Jorgensen was suspended for that match, having picked up two yellow cards in the 2-0 defeat at second top Ajax, however, he is now available for Feyenoord’s next match.

Van Bronckhorst says that as it currently stands, he intends to play Jorgensen against ADO Den Haag when the teams meet on Sunday.

That is of course unless something changes on the transfer front…

If Nicolai Jorgensen plays in that match then surely we can more or less write off his chances of a move to Newcastle in this transfer window.

If Feyenoord think there is any chance of Newcastle meeting their asking price then there is surely no way they would play him and risk injury and such a valuable deal being ruled out. This is somebody that they could potentially be making up to £17m profit on after signing Jorgensen for less than £3m only 18 months ago.

The point is as well, tomorrow’s game is all but meaningless for Feyenoord so there is no driving reason to include the striker. They are 16 points off PSV at the top and 11 behind even second placed Ajax, Feyenoord have no chance of Champions League football next season, never mind the league title in this campaign.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst says that he has already discussed the potential move to Newcastle and the striker is interested, the Feyenoord Manager saying he understands the attraction of the Premier League and of course the higher wages the Danish striker would then pick up.

All that is needed now is for Mike Ashley to meet Feyenoord’s asking price.

All eyes will be on the Feyenoord team selection when it is named tomorrow lunchtime, the game against ADO Den Haag kicking off at 1.30pm on Sunday.



  • ghostrider

    I hope we don’t get this player.
    I’d sooner play Mitrovic with the flu than have this player playing for us.
    Yeah I’m making judgements on not knowing what he can do in this league.
    I’ll stick to making that judgement.
    I don’t like the thought of this.
    Please don’t let it happen.

    • Oooh bobbi fleckman

      I know nothing but the Dennis Wise scouting system about this player but he doesn’t look the player we need

  • TheNutJob

    i wouldn`t pay £20m, he`s not worth it, he couldn`t score goals in Germany so he certainly won`t score them in the premiership

    • Jezza

      I guarantee you he won’t score goals for Newcastle for the simple reason he will not be playing for Newcastle. Fatso has got no intention of signing this lad or any other player before the deadline. It is just another farcical long drawn out hoax to try and fool the fans and get those renewals coming in. I just can’t believe that some of our fans still allow their hopes to be built up by ridiculous pantomimes like this.

      • KRS1

        absolutely spot on. Gayle or Shelvey to be sold on deadline day.

        • Peaky Magpie

          Or worse still mate Lascelles,if Spurs or indeed Chelsea come with £30m Fatso will personally sanction the sale.

          • HarryHype59

            I said weeks ago this may happen.

          • KRS1

            I can just imagine the fat ba#tard excitedly filling the helicopter full of fuel for his flight down to Daniel Levy with Lascelles in the back!

          • Blackburn1066

            and our manager going the other way with his bags packed.

        • Jezza

          If I was a betting man my money wouldbe on Gayle. They will say they let Gayle go thinking they had Jorgensen on the bag before a late hitch scuppered what would have been a club record signing.

        • Oooh bobbi fleckman

          I bet you £20 those are only sold if we make significant player addictions

          • KRS1

            Happy to take that bet.

          • Oooh bobbi fleckman

            Good man, £20 says Gayle and Shelvey will not be sold unless we acquire a player valued above £10m

          • KRS1

            Hold on Mr Fleckman, think we need to sort the terms of reference here. You said earlier they won’t be sold unless we make significant player addition’s. If Gayle + Shelvey are sold I want 2 players in to NUFC for you to get your £20.
            Jorgensen in and Shelvey and Gayle out doesn’t equal significant additions. Do you agree?

          • Oooh bobbi fleckman

            Personally, I’d prefer Gayle to stay rather than Jorgensen, I don’t think he’s the answer. There is a player in Spain who is gettable, 26 yo and will have a better impact imho.

            I think Mitro leaves and an Other comes in. The bet is the net spend will be positive.

          • KRS1

            Agree with you on Jorgensen. Happy with net spend bet.

      • Blackburn1066

        It’s just about season ticket time again, get them sheep from the hills the little Fat man wants YOUR cassssh.

        • nufcslf

          And will get it, sadly enough.

      • nufcslf

        My thoughts exactly. Too tired of the years pysh take to have any hope. But like any form of illness it is still important to talk and get it off your chest.

    • Damon Horner

      Agreed. What he did as a 21 year old in 10 games in a new league is more than fair to assume he won’t score here.

  • anyobrien

    I no nothing about this player but isn’t it pathetic how our illustrations owner and his idiotic side kick charnley are p1zzing around with the fee… Then they have the gaul to call staveley a time waster…. As it happens we won’t sign anyone like normal.

    • Oooh bobbi fleckman

      A whole 5 days of negotiation? By your logic, Feyenord should accept any offer, otherwise they are just being greedy.

    • ghostrider

      15 million offered for this lump is way over the top so I’d say Newcastle are being generous in trying to get the player for Rafa.
      Why Rafa thinks this player can do better than what he has is a mystery, but then again Rafa is a mystery most of the time.

      If Jorgensen’s worth 20 million then Mitrovic is worth 50 million and Joselu is worth 20 million and Gayle 40 million…if we want to go down that route.

      Jorgensen, indeed.
      Rafa wants his head plugging into the national grid to sort him out.

      • csh

        Still mourning the loss of McClaren one would assume.

        • ghostrider

          I didn’t like McClaren.

      • hetonmag

        You don’t half post some rubbish don’t you.

        • ghostrider

          In terms of the mindset of people like yourself, maybe it does appear like that. No more than what your stuff appears to me.

        • Jezza

          Ignore him, marra. He is a wind up merchant who has been trolling this site for years under various different ID’s. He also posts as Oooh bobbi fleckman, Clarko and Monkseaton Magpies. He is not a Newcastle supporter and he is not from Monkseaton. He lives in Manchester, works in a S****s D****t shop and is a season ticket holder at Old Trafford.

          • hetonmag

            Cheers mate thanks for the info👍👍👍

          • KRS1

            He is a weapons grade moron!

          • hetonmag

            Cheers mate 👍👍👍

          • Oooh bobbi fleckman

            Ha, ha, of course, Jezza is right.

          • hetonmag

            Go and post on the Manure website.

          • Oooh bobbi fleckman

            I can’t vouch for The others mentioned but I can assure you, I don’t have an alias nor do I support Manure. I do live closer to Manchester than I do Newcastle but he’s pushing it a bit if he thinks I live in Manchester, I think he gets that from the fact I went to the away games at Burnley, Manure, City, Huddersfield & Stoke but there is an obvious city close to those towns that he’s not mentioned.

            Jezza has yet to be right about anything, I was being playful suggesting her managed to be right. If ever you ask him to put £10 on one of his great proclamations and he backs down.

          • hetonmag

            Good lad Jezza, who like 99-9% of people on this forum who dislike the way the club is run, I got a little taster of your banter the other day and you come across as a typical Thatcherite in that you would be happy if every ordinary working class people should be on the minimum wage, especially those working for your hero.

          • Oooh bobbi fleckman

            You come over like a typical socialist, you believe the world owes everone a living (including youself) blaming everyone but yourself when a living does not land on your lap.

            However, the point of my aparant support for Mike is to take a logical view. He will sell but it has to be a deal that is good for him, obviously? He’s not going to get involved in the willy waving that will ruin him which will sadly not get us where we the fans want.

          • hetonmag

            Nobody owes me anything I’m retired now, worked 50 Year’s and I can safely tell you nothing has ever landed on my lap, everything I’ve got I have worked for and worked bloody hard that’s for sure. That first paragraph tells me exactly what you are and that I’m correct in my assumption.

          • Oooh bobbi fleckman

            I didn’t know that would be a problem

          • Phil

            And uses Bet Victor !

      • Blackburn1066

        He wants this player because he will do what rafa wants him to do on the field of play, Mitro won’t

        • ghostrider

          Mitrovic is a striker and if allowed to be a striker will show what he’s about.
          Mitro’s on fire your defence is terrified.
          Anyone remember this?
          Anyone remember when Mitrovic was the kid?
          Just imagine if he’d been nurtured by a manager that wasn’t a petty git.

      • anyobrien

        C.o c k

        • ghostrider

          That’s entirely up to you mate. Each to their own.

      • nufcslf

        And you’re the definition of a modern day clueless Mike Cashley sheep follower.

        • ghostrider

          I follow Newcastle United, even with a clown like Benitez as manager.
          I’ve followed Newcastle UNited with plenty of good managers and clown managers plus good owners and clown like owners.
          Ashley is probably the best owner we’ve ever had in terms of keeping the club financially solid.
          He’s one of the worst for not giving the fans trophy signings on a whim.

          He used to give out the odd nice present but the fans decided they weren’t enough so now he goes with the natural flow of in house economy to keep the club alive at the top end of the leagues instead of the sinking that many clubs will follow.

          As for you. Hanging onto Rafa’s coat tails when he’s dishing out this muck is the definition of someone who has an idol that nothing will stop the worship of, especially when weak mindedly following the mass hysteria surrounding a man who saved this club from a nasty fate.

    • nufcslf

      Bloody increadible, isn’t it. When the window shuts with no help coming in, I can’t see this shoddy excuse for a football club winning another match this season, starting tomorrow against Chelsea’s reserves.

  • Wezza147

    We all have our hopes up for more promises but we know deep down they are just lies. We won’t get him and I’m another one that isn’t too keen either. I’d rather gamble on mitrovic.

    • 1957

      I would at least have wanted to see what Mitrovic could do this season before gambling on another goalscorer from a weak league…Benitez thinks otherwise for some reason, given what I’ve read about Jorgensen this week, he’s no more than a straight swap, albeit 4/5 years older

    • Rich Lawson

      Got to start against Chelsea.

    • nufcslf

      Gamble, Cashley’s favourite nufc poilicy.

  • Wor Lass

    We desperately need a striker. I`d prefer someone more experienced and proven at a higher level but if he is the only show in town then just get the offer to a place they`ll accept and get on with it. If Rafa`s got no intention of playing Mitro then offer him in part-ex. I`d rather keep him myself but there`s no point if he`s never going to be picked.

    • 1957

      Offer them a straight swap if Benitez would prefer Jorgensen to Mitrovic, surely that would keep everyone happy. Benitez gets his player, Mitrovic gets a move to a club where he should get 1st team football and not to a PL club where he might come back to haunt the manager and more importantly…Big Mike doesn’t spend any money.

      • glassjawsh-got-banned

        mitro’s wages would kill that before it got off the ground

      • Rich Lawson

        But if they don’t want him either,even in the Dutch league that speaks volumes ? Reduced fee and wages to Europe or he stays put.

    • Rich Lawson

      If he doesn’t start against Chelsea 2moro that’s his season over !

  • Leicester Mag

    Reporting on Newcastle for dummies:

    Step 1: headline- Newcastle reported to be interested in. Repeat..

    Step 2: follow up: take to next stage if fans show signs of restlessness. Newcastle poised (like a stuffed sloth) to make bid.

    Step 3: raise to fever pitch. Ashley gives interview – promise to back manager Bid reported (different of course to actually made). Offer way below asking price. Think offer of value of second hand Ford fiesta for new Porsche).

    Step 4: bid raised (still fictional or miles less than asking price)

    Step 5: Repeat until deadline day when at 11 report fictional deal failed to cross line.

  • hetonmag

    We seem to be putting all our eggs in one basket with this lad, there’s other areas of the team that need improving on such as a number 10, something doesn’t seem quite right about the pursuit of the Dutch lad for a kick off why have they gone so public they normally do everything underhanded like signing someone for an undisclosed fee.

  • mactoon

    They want £20 m so we offer £12.
    They say they want £20m so we offer £15.
    They say again they want £20 so now we’re waiting to see if we up the offer.

    I think we will go back with a £16m offer which will be rejected and by that time the window will be closing.

    Same old, same old.

  • HarryHype59

    Why is it that NUFC never appear to have alternative targets lined up? If NUFC club value him at only £15m then and the selling club want more, then move on to another player even if it is only a loan deal.

    A sceptic would think it is all smoke and mirrors, designed to hide the fact that the club doesn’t actually want to sign anyone.

    • Paul Patterson

      That is EXACTLY the plan. You stand a lot more chance of failing to get your targets, the less targets you have.
      It’s happening now in much the way that it happened ten years ago when KK was here.
      Kevin presented the owner/board with his targets and that list promptly went in the bin. Oh and James Milner was flogged for a massive profit to boot.

    • Rich Lawson

      But surely Rafa has given Ashley A,B, n C targets,so we must be alright then ?!!

    • Jezza

      Don’t worry, they have got an alternative target lined up. Shefki Kuqi is eargerly sitting by the phone as we speak.

  • Albert Stubbins

    In summary then. No deal!! Now there’s a surprise.

  • Jonathan Gibson

    I never thought the day would come when id miss the mackem slayer…appreciate shola more these days for his hold up play, winning free kicks etc, better player than many inc myself realised. Personally id rather the club put £20m into a proven centre forward like danny welbeck who will struggle for game time with forwards arsenal have. Lots of atributes toon dont have at moment.

    • Rich Lawson

      ”You never know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone”

      • Blackburn1066

        We know we have got that little Fat C-nt and if he Fu-ks off great

    • Jezza

      The truth is Shola was never good enough and was very lucky to have had such a long career at Newcastle. The fact that we are now starting to miss him is yet another damning indictment of how badly that fat greedy bloodsucking parasite Ashley has lowered standards at our club.

    • robbersdog

      Welbeck would cost a hell of a lot more than £20m, and is currently paid around £120k per week at Arsenal. He’s a non-starter.

      • Jonathan Gibson

        Aye, likely so, arsenals 4th choice striker well out of our reach..

  • Rich Lawson

    Can we not make a surprise bid for Van Persie instead ?

  • RoboRat

    I’ll be amazed if we get three decent players in. More likely to resign Shola than Jorg.

  • GToon

    Does Charnley work on a Sunday?

    • Damon Horner

      Don’t even think he works on a Monday.

  • Neil O

    I listened to Talk Sport Radio earlier this week, and the chap who routinely reports on all matters Dutch (football….), said that he didn’t think that this chap would be a success in the Premier League. And he should know.
    Personally I would prefer a decent loan – then, if we are still in the Premier League, invest in a decent striker in the summer window.

  • Bowlsey

    So…it’s Sunday now. Is he coming or what? (tumble weed blows passed) Yeah, I’m starting to think that Sid James summed this situation up perfectly.
