Newcastle United: Eddie Howe ‘ponders’ Kieran Tierney bid

Newcastle United: Eddie Howe ‘ponders’ Kieran Tierney bid -Newcastle United News

Eddie Howe reportedly now ‘ponders’ making a club-record bid to sign Kieran Tierney for Newcastle United this summer.

The Lowdown: Targett uncertainty

It is not clear whether the St James’ Park outfit will sign loanee Matt Targett on a permanent deal from Aston Villa, with the likes of Atletico Madrid left-back Renan Lodi being linked with a move to the northeast recently.

It is an area of the pitch where the Tynesiders are expected to strengthen, with more names now being reported as potential arrivals.

The Latest: Tierney move?

Taking to Twitter, The Gooner journalist Layth Yousif has revealed that Howe now ‘ponders’ making a £50m bid for Tierney, which would be a club-record transfer for Newcastle.

However, the Arsenal and Scotland left-back is ‘happy’ with Mikel Arteta’s project in north London, so it may be difficult to persuade him to join the Tyneside revolution.

Should Newcastle sign Tierney?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Verdict: Avoid

£50m is a big gamble to pay for a player in Tierney who, despite his brilliance – Premier League and England legend Ashley Cole has previously dubbed him a ‘warrior‘ – is unfortunately quite injury-prone.

Also, with him being on £110,000 per week at the Emirates Stadium, he is likely to cost a lot in wages, further adding to the gamble from a Newcastle perspective.

Targett would provide a much cheaper option at £15m, and 97.5% of supporters polled want him to stay anyway. However, as Tierney shares the same agent as three other Magpies players, this is a deal which could still work if the price is negotiated down.
