Gameiro still a Long shot for the Toon

Newcastle are allegedly after Reading's Shane Long.
Alternative to Gameiro?
Newcastle United look unlikely to sign Kevin Gameiro now, although he is coming to the North East next week. The club have allegedly turned their attention to Shane Long as a backup if a deal for Gameiro falls through.

It seems that Newcastle have not given up Kevin Gameiro yet, despite the player having said that Valencia and Paris Saint-Germain are his preferred choices.

Newcastle have already had a £10m bid for Gameiro ‘accepted’ by Lorient and it’s now up to the player to decide where his future lies. Valencia have no been able to match our bid and are prepared to wait, hoping that the player’s own preferences will eventually make him choose Spain.

Meanwhile, the Qatar Investment Authority bought 70% of PSG last week and are now said to be well-funded, although I’m not sure if they’ve made an actual bid for Gameiro yet.

Nevertheless, Gameiro is supposedly coming to Tyneside at the end of next week when Pardew and Llambias will work him over and try and persuade him to join the Toon, although it’s probably fair to say that it’s looking unlikely. (more…)
