Report: Aguerd’s second thoughts

Nayef Aguerd is this morning being reported as being unsure whether he want to join West Ham or Newcastle.

That’s coming from the Daily Star and amounts to just one line in a story reported here exclusively yesterday that the Geordies were making a late bid to hijack our deal.

There is nothing to back up the statement and it feels like no more than a twist on the story we gave you.

We know little more that  we explained yesterday but it’s more than possible that the player’s agent – even at this late stage – is attempting to screw more cash on personal terms by planting a tale that the Magpies are in.

If the central defender does turn his back on us for the Geordies it will of course be a massive blow to the new recruitment policy set up by Moyes.

Rob Newman is allegedly now responsible for doing deal with David Sullivan having stepped back from the role.

Fingers crossed.

  1. This kind of activity from Newcastle is bordering on criminal.They think that they just have to flash the cheque book and everyone will come running/ If the agent is trying to get more money then it won’t happen with GSB, a deal has been done and if Aguerd goes to Newcastle then good riddance.Yet another mercenary.

    • If it is true in reality that is all they have to do, we see this with all the powerful owners of these financially more aggressive clubs. Man City was the same, Man Utd are, you could extend that to every club that has money, they bully the clubs throughout the league and are supported in that through all of the football bodies who are another bunch of questionable characters.

  2. All this mis-information about Nayef Aguerd, Declan Rice, Jarrod Bowen etc I believe is meant to destablise West Ham as the Media and the so called top 6 don’t want us improving and thus threatening their status and the status quo in the Premiership.
    A lot of the dislike for West Ham goes back to David Sullivan and Gold and where their monies were made. Hopefully Sullivan will be gone next year along with Brady but I believe Gold is staying on. Sullivan and Brady are going to resurface at Birmingham and then , just maybe, with the Czech owner we can be accepted as a force in the Premiership and go on to greater things.

  3. Let Newman do all our transfers please.

  4. So does Newman have the authority to agree the complete financial structure of any deal?

  5. The only reason Newcastle are able to flash the wedge is the procrastination of our management team instead of getting the deals done. Apparently the newly minted Geordies are trying to cut in on our deals with both Areola and Aguerd – just stop dithering and get the job done.

  6. Players play for their families as much as for themselves. Newcastle is now the richest club in the world. It’s got to turn a players head. Let’s face it we now have at least seven clubs now with more money than us for transfers and if there is a direct correlation between money and success then we’re destined to be competing for eighth place in future.

  7. Scratch that, ninth place because Aston Villa are loaded now as well.
