Siem de Jong and Jan Vertonghen were just two to make the pilgrimage back to Ajax to pay tribute to Johan Cruyff.
Newcastle fans are labelled deluded….yet nothing is said when Spurs fans boo their team off after only 4th defeat in 25 games.
Newcastle are favourites to land central defender Toby Alderweireld from Atletico Madrid on an initial loan deal according to reports this morning.
Back in January we carried a piece about alleged interest in Ajax’s Belgian centre-back, Jan Vertonghen.
Rumours persist that he is interested in a move to England but will where we finish in league decide how likely we are to attract him and others?
So who do you think we’ll sign of the 101 players NUFC are linked with, less than zero?
Mike Ashley’s rigid transfer ‘policy’ seemingly rules out established Premier League players but will a Vertonghen and a similar striker be on the shopping list.
One player who could potentially be on Newcastle’s radar is Belgian centre-back/midfielder Jan Vertonghen who is captain of Ajax.
Only 24 (resale value!), he has 35 international caps, scores goals and looks a canny player, plus he has only 18 months to run on his contract (money off!).
