With eight ours to go on transfer deadline day, Newcastle United have revealed an early transfer.

The club putting out an official announcement that Ivan Toney has been sold to Peterborough United.

As usual, it is ‘undisclosed fee’ for the transfer deal.

Never under consideration by Rafa Benitez for his first team squad, after a series of loan deals Ivan Toney ends up on a permanent move to a League One side.

Having done really well at that level when on loan, and scored goals, Newcastle will have had plenty of offers.

Whilst it won’t be a massive fee of course, fans see it topping up the near £30m profit generated already this summer.

Yet Rafa Benitez having to scratch around for loans and/or bargains on deadline day.

Newcastle United official statement:

‘Ivan Toney has completed a permanent move to Peterborough United.

The 22-year-old moves to London Road for an undisclosed fee after three years with Newcastle United.

Toney made two Premier League appearances and two League Cup appearances for the Magpies after moving from Northampton Town in 2015, as well as appearing for the club’s Under-23 side.

The striker has also had six loan spells away from St. James’ Park with four different clubs, spending time with Barnsley (twice), Shrewsbury Town, Scunthorpe United (twice) and Wigan Athletic.

Everyone at Newcastle United wishes the player the best for the future.’

    I hope youre all going to be on Northumberland Street at 11 am Saturday,( for Ben Jones and Clarko and Bobby,) thats in Newcastle

    • Kenny

      I’ll be there but the vermin won’t be

    • Ron

      Their loan agreements have ended and they’ve been recalled to Old Trafford

  • Milburn_Taylor

    more interested in getting players out than in

  • Lord

    This summer has reminded me that I need to give my garage a good clear out of the stuff I no longer use.

  • Chuck D

    Reminds me off when he used to plaster his shops with those ‘closing down’ posters…until he was done by trading standards as the shop wasn’t in fact closing down.

    • Ron

      Looking forward to the day they say “CLOSED” – Ashley’s out!

      • ghostrider

        Let’s just hope the closed sign doesn’t stay on the club when Ashley’s long gone, eh.

        • Ron

          I wasn’t thinking about it being at the club but his shops

          • ghostrider

            If his shops suffer then so does his other business interest. Think about it.

          • Ron

            Yeah, that’s true, he might have to sell some off.

  • panther

    do we even have enough players for Saturday?

  • MetalMickey

    We are quite possibly the only team in English football, who could announce that any business done today, will see players leaving rather than arriving.
    Deadline day has become the biggest anticlimax since the final episode of Lost.
    All thanks to the fat cockney shopkeeper.

  • ghostrider

    So who sells these players?
    Is it Rafa of Ashley or Charnley?
    Anyone know for sure, without speculation?

    • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

      It’s pretty clear that none of those that have left are in Rafa’s plans.

      • ghostrider

        I agree.

  • MadMag83

    There needs to be an investigation by HMRC for fraud, forget the tax avoidance by Charnley, Ashley is pocketing millions in player transfers whilst pleading poverty.

    Ashley has really pulled the rug from under Benitez this summer. Forcing him to sell to generate funds and still not giving him the money! Pantomime villain is too kind, the guy is a real world crook.

    • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

      The club are banking money / monies owed.

      • nufcslf

        Don’t be so f**king stupid and blind. The 10th place finish from ladt season plus tv and player sales is free money, not for the thick fat c**t upsyairs to picket or claim doesn’t exist. The man is a lying crook and needs running out of the club, but nothing will be said by the 50,000 sheep on Saturday after yet another home loss due to not being more than a average Championship side being forced into 17th will do. Joke tacky outfit with a bigger joke owner. Going down, going down, going down…………….

        • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

          Are you by any chance a Sunderland fan?

          there is no evidence that money has been taken out of the club.

  • Mxpx

    This is actually a good move he was never going to be a first team player… Unclear why he was signed in the first place

  • Leicester Mag

    No qualms over letting him go sadly not good enough. However the trend of selling continues unabated. Football’s own car boot with honest Mike proudly standing by.

  • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

    Bit of a shame, I thought he could be promising.

  • WrongToon

    No qualms with this at all. Bought around the same time as Lascelles (or the next season, I can’t remember), and has made little or no progress towards the first team. Seems to have stalled at League 1 level, much in the same way Armstrong has done at Championship level (possibly also League 1).

    The £2m from those two should absolutely be earmarked for reinvestment in the Academy, although I fear Aspers will probably be getting a call soon looking to pay off about £2m from a Mr Ashley’s gambling tab…

  • Foggy

    Good. Two years too late. Total waste of time and money.

  • nufcslf

    Still time to sell Lascelles and Shelvey yet…..

    • Peter C

      This will not happen in this transfer window, but who’s to say it won’t happen in the next.
