According to The Mail’s Craig Hope, he was informed by the Newcastle United recruitment circle that the club had adopted a new transfer policy this summer.
Northeastern reporters claim to focus on players under the age of 24. This is similar to the policy that stood in Tyneside for the first decade (believed to be under 26).
This revealed that Steve Bruce was handed a budget of just £ 10m late last night, while NUFC owners waited for the final decision on the ongoing Saudi takeover story. After saying he didn’t want to sanction major spending.
After hearing whispers from people near the club’s recruiting team, Hope tweeted earlier today:
True, the next player who has been strongly linked so far this summer is not a Steve Bruce beginner.
- Mario Lemina (Southampton)
- Will Hughes (Watford)
- Kyle Bartley (West Brom)
- Valentino Lazaro (Inter Milan)
- Jetro Willems (free agent)
- Wout Weghorst (Wolfsburg)
- Andre Ayew (free agent)
- Rafa Silva (Benfica)
- Ross Barkley (Chelsea)
In a sense, some senior players have been signed since Bruce was appointed, and focusing on hungry young talent may actually be a wise move.
Ashley allowed 28-year-old Callum Wilson to move £ 20m last summer and agreed to hand over new deals to three experienced players over the age of 30 including Federico Fernandez, Ciaran Clark and Matt Ritchie. Must be.
That said, if a promising young player is targeted, the £ 10m budget won’t grow that much, and the loan, bossman, and bargain release clauses will be very important to Steve Bruce this summer.
