Taarabt in, Barton out?

Newcastle United are allegedly interested in Adel Taarabt.
Another midfielder?
It will come as no surprise to Newcastle United fans that the club is now being strongly linked with another midfielder with French connections, although Arsenal’s alleged interest in Joey Barton may be a little more surprising.

I am most disappointed to find we haven’t signed any new players yet today. Ashley oot!

There is a fair bit of gossip though and I’ll summarise a couple of the grooviest bits of it here. Bear in mind though that the gossip provided in this article is done so by professionals and you must under no circumstances try this at home.

This might be hard to believe, but we’re being connected with yet another midfielder in the shape of Adel Taarabt. There were rumblings about him a few weeks ago too – and we did apparently get a £5m bid for him rejected in January – but the fires of speculation have been reignited with some comments Taarabt has made recently. The QPR player said:

They want me to stay four years on the same terms. I don’t want to sign for four years then after one year I am going to be back in The Championship.

No disrespect, but if we keep the same players, it will be very difficult to stay in the Premier League when you are playing Manchester United and Chelsea.

I helped QPR win promotion but they will not offer me a better contract. They say I am already on big wages.(more…)
