Newcastle United Potential Transfers Betting Odds

Published

on

The transfer window is nearly over and with that so does Newcastle’s chances of improving their squad. In what many can consider an underwhelming transfer window under Newcastle’s new Saudi backed ownership, the Magpies have only managed two bring in two signings, Kieran Trippier and Chris Wood.

With the combined total of 42.5 million being spent, Newcastle fans are eager to see more additions to their team however the January window is notoriously difficult and when you find yourself 18th in the table, attracting the right players is a task.

This window the likes of Diego Carlos, Jesse Lingard and Sven Botman have all been linked however, all deals have failed to come to light as the parties could not agree on financial fees.

With that, we look across the latest betting odds for players to make the move to St. James Park as we head towards transfer deadline day.

Diego Carlos

This one is obvious; it’s been covered in the media for weeks however the clubs can not come to an agreement despite the player stating his intention to switch Sevilla for Tyneside. Sevilla would be willing to sell the defender if the price is matched however, that’s where the two clubs cannot agree despite the players interest. The reported price tag for the Brazilian is £38 million but it is rumoured to increase.

Oddschecker have Newcastle as favourites on where Carlos will end up at 4/6 however Tottenham have reported interest in centre-half at 5/2.

Dele Alli:

The Tottenham man has been in and out of the starting Xi for several years, failing to replicate the form which made him one of England’s hottest prospects 5 years ago. A mixture of managers and bad form has saw Dele’s decline from the Spurs starting XI to the bench. This season, Dele has played games but hasn’t replicated the form that helped him become a fan favourite.

Newcastle are in need of a creative player who can make a difference to the team as they fight the doom of potential relegation. SkyBet have Dele at 2/1 to join the Magpies. Even Roy Keane endorsed such a move on super Sunday.

James Tarkowski

Despite having already signed one Burnley player this window, the centre half finds himself being linked to Newcastle. The 29-year-old is in the final six months of his Turf Moor contract, which means the Clarets could lose him for nothing if he is not moved on during the current transfer window.

Newcastle could go for him Tarkowski as they do need a premier league proven player and he has done it on a consistent basis at Turf Moor. SkyBet have Tarkowski at 2/1 to join the club and if the Claret and Blue club want to profit on him, they may have to in the next few days or watch as he leaves for nothing at the end of the season.

Aaron Ramsey:

Ramsey left Arsenal to join Juventus in 2019. The Welsh international has had a mixed time in Turin especially this season as he has only made 3 Serie A appearances. Ramsey himself is out of favour at Juventus and is keen on a return to the Premier League.

Many Premier League clubs are interested in the Welshman, clubs such as Aston Villa, Crystal Palace and West Ham are all keeping tabs on the player however Newcastle are considered favourites from SkyBet at 11/8 as the Magpies would not have as much trouble as the likes of Palace at meeting the midfielder’s wage demands.

Newcastle’s worrying league position finds them potentially looking more at a loan deal than a permanent transfer. The deal could be hard to pull off but is definitely one to watch as the window concludes.

Jesse Lingard:

With the future of Lingard all but certain, the one thing we know is that he will be leaving Manchester United come the end of the season. With West Ham and Newcastle the front runners to sign the 29 year old, the player has the chance to revitalize his career as his Old Trafford days have resulted in limited game time.

West Ham fans know what Lingard can do on the field having seen him for the second half of last season, Newcastle fans know it’s something their team needs.

Newcastle wants the deal pushed through but Manchester United are providing some tough obstacles, They are demanding that Newcastle, who are currently 18th in the table, pay a massive £12 million bonus if Lingard joins and helps them avoid relegation to the Championship with his performances from now until the end of the season.

In addition, Eddie Howe’s side must cover the player’s £100,000-per-week wages and pay a loan fee of around £6 million to complete the deal.

SkyBet has Newcastle at 11/10 to sign Lingard, West Ham aren’t too far behind at 11/2.

Baby P’s Killer Mum Tracey Connelly Set for Prison Release after Judge Gives Green Light

Published

on

Tracey Connelly, the mother of Baby P, who died after months of abuse, will be released from prison after the Parole Board rejected a Government challenge against its ruling.

The decision comes after Justice Secretary Dominic Raab appealed against the recommendation to free Tracey Connelly from prison.

Connelly was jailed at the Old Bailey in 2009 for causing or allowing the death of her 17-month-old son Peter at their home in Tottenham, north London, on August 3 2007.

Dominic Raab said the decision demonstrated why the system “needs a fundamental overhaul – including a ministerial check for the most serious offenders”.

Now 40, this was Connelly’s fourth parole review after she was released on licence in 2013 but recalled to prison in 2015 for breaching her parole conditions by “developing intimate personal relationships” online and inciting another resident at her accommodation to engage in “inappropriate sexualised behaviour”.

In a statement, the Parole Board said: “In summary, the judge has concluded that the panel did take into consideration all evidence mentioned by the application and made rational conclusions.

“The reconsideration decision clarifies that the weight given to the evidence given by the Secretary of States witnesses, who supported release, and the proposed external controls, was proportionate and the reasons were clearly outlined in the decision letter.

“The final ground on the rationality of the outcome was also rejected on the grounds of not reaching the threshold, as defined by law, for becoming unreasonable.”

The Parole Board, which is independent of government, received a formal request to review the decision to free Connelly last week.
