Newcastle ready for £1m striker offload

Published Add your comment

The Daily Telegraph claims that Nile Ranger is poised to exit Newcastle this summer, as the side make way for fresh new faces in the squad.

Newcastle are reportedly planning to offload a few big names during the summer, and Alan Pardew sees Ranger as having too many disciplinary issues to be a part of a new look squad.

Ranger was involved in controversy last season when a picture was released of the Englishman with a toy gun, and the incident is believed to have been the last straw for Pardew as he decided his summer transfer policy.

Pardew recently insisted that discipline was an important part of his regime as manager at Newcastle.


“Discipline in and around the building I will definitely improve next year,” Pardew said.

“When you inherit a club halfway through a season and you start laying down the law – and I think that has happened in the past here — and changing things and saying this isn’t acceptable, that isn’t acceptable. I’m not sure it works.

“Players need to be in at a certain time, food will stop at a certain time, let’s train on time. I think that is the minimum ask from a professional player.”

Ranger can reportedly be offloaded from the club for £1 million, and Queens Park Rangers and Bolton have been connected with the 20-year-old as he looks for a new club.

Newcastle are looking at some big name exits as well as Ranger, including Alan Smith who has reportedly been released, and Kevin Nolan and Joey Barton, who have both continued to stall talks over their contracts.

And with the imminent signing of Neil Taylor for a £1 million fee, Pardew reportedly sees Ranger’s exit as the perfect swap in the Newcastle line up.
