Embarrassing ‘exclusive’ claims Newcastle United trying to sign Everton attacker
Newcastle United are trying to sign Yannick Bolasie according to an ‘exclusive’ today.
This is a terrible time of year for media reports, really scraping the barrel, and this transfer ‘scoop’ is amongst the lowest of the low.
If people are going to simply fabricate claims of a certain team supposedly wanting to sign a certain player, they should at least do the basics…
As in, checking that the deal is even possible.
Teamtalk have reported this particular one, with a headline…’EXCLUSIVE: Everton star a loan target for Newcastle.’
The only problem is that when making this up, they haven’t even bothered to check and find out that Newcastle United already have two players on loan from English clubs.
Even beyond the fact that the rules say Newcastle can’t sign him…
Yannick Bolasie struggled to even get a game for Aston Villa in the Championship this season, only nine league starts but named on the bench twelve times.
So why any Premier League club would think he was the answer is beyond me.
The Teamtalk ‘Exclusive’:
‘EXCLUSIVE: Everton star a loan target for Newcastle, Palace
Yannick Bolasie has told Everton that he wants to join a Premier League club this month, after he exercised an option to return to the club, we can reveal.
The Toffees were left far from happy with the 30-year-old’s decision to cut short his loan at Aston Villa – but Bolasie was not happy during his stay at Villa Park.
Now back at Everton – Bolasie is interesting a number of clubs with former club Crystal Palace a possible destination – but Newcastle, Burnley and Cardiff are all monitoring a potential deal.
Bolasie scored 12 goals in 133 league appearances for Palace between 2012-16 before joining Everton for £25million, although a cruciate ligament injury hampered his progress at Goodison park and he has failed to replicate the form he showed during his time at Selhurst Park.’
