Double dutch blow for Roe

Newcastle United's plans to go Dutch in the January transfer widow have been thwarted because Ajax can pay their own way.

 

Glenn Roeder has targeted Ajax's 26-year-old striker Klaas Jan Huntelaar and left-back Urby Emanuelson, but has already been told from Amsterdam to back off.

 

Roeder is always reluctant to talk about any transfer targets, but he admitted today: "Like a lot of Premiership managers, Huntelaar and Emanuelson are two players I greatly admire, but Ajax are insisting they are not for sale."

 

While a lot of the talk was about fellow Dutch striker Dirk Kuyt in the summer, Roeder would loved to have brought the man called The Hunter to St James' Park - but after paying e9m for him, Ajax see him as part of their future.

 

 

Where United missed the boat was in February 2005 when Huntelaar played against them and scored for Heerenveen in a UEFA Cup match in the Dutch town.

 

 

United have already spotted the potential of the 20-year-old Emanuelson, but so too have Ajax and Holland after he was capped for the first time against the Republic of Ireland in August.

 

 

United know that their fans are expecting additions to their paper-thin and injury-hit squad, and Roeder insists: "We know what parts of our team needs strengthening and we will be acting accordingly."

 

 

United are desperate for a couple of strikers, while another central defender and a left-back would come in more than handy in January. The whole football world - including the agents - know that United are desperate for new players, and fans can expect all sorts of weird and not-so-wonderful names to be thrown at them in the next couple of months.

 

 

Even by United's standards the number of players they were linked with over the weekend was astonishing - but none of them will be finding a peg in the St James' Park dressing room.

 

 

United love Alan Smith's aggression, but he is not a natural goalscorer so you can rule him out.

 

 

Aston Villa midfielder Steve Davis was strongly linked with a move to United over the weekend, but Roeder is not interested.

 

 

The Magpies are well off in midfield, but if they do find they want to strengthen here they have a player in mind with a Premiership club - and it's not Davis.

 

 

As far as central defenders are concerned, Berne Young Boys' Ivory coast international Steve Gohouri, Leicester's Aussie Patrick Kisnorbo and Valencia's David Navarro were all said to be targets over the weekend - but none are.

 

 

Navarro has already got up United's nose by saying that he is going to turn down a move to St James' Park because he fears Newcastle will be relegated.

 

 

This prompted Roeder to say: "Before you can turn anybody down you have to be asked."

 

 

Roeder has distanced himself from reports linking Newcastle with a bid for former striker Lomana LuaLua, who is believed to be unhappy at Portsmouth.

 

 

United were also linked with Celtic striker Shaun Maloney over the weekend, and although they will have a high-powered delegation at Parkhead tonight - including Roeder and chairman Freddy Shepherd - for the Champions League game with Manchester United, I am told there is no specific player they are watching.

Oliver at it again, Huntelaar 26-year-old.. He's really 23 years..

 

How can someone who knows nothing and is not even prepared to find small facts write articles?

 

He probably hadn't even heard of him until England played Holland last week.

Ok, stupid question cos I really can't think of the answer to this.....................

 

Why would a 'high powered' delegation travel all the way upto Glasgow to view the match if they have no intention of watching a player?

 

Surely they could sit on their fat arses (Aye, thats right Freddie) in front of the TV?

 

What benefit will they get from being there?

26 year old Huntelaar?  The bloke aged several years in a space of minutes, amazing!

 

He'd be some signing, though.

 

Yes, but realistically no chance.  Telling us we're interested in players we have no hope of signing ranks just behind telling us where we'd be in the league if we played ChampMan with Owen fit.  Still, it fills the paper up nicely.

 

Christus lacrimosus  :jesus:

Quoted for Truth!

 

Wish I was Editor at the Chronicle just for a day. I'd be in the office packing Olivers desk up and drafting his P45 before the tw*t had even woken up.

 

He's one lazy journo.

Both of them are quality. But one of 2 things will happen when they come to NUFC.

1) Injury blow for months and months and months

2) Suddenly become sh*t (lets just say, not adapted to the english game "roeder not playing them")

huntlaar is world class - and he'll end up at a much much better club than ours.

 

emmanuelson is very shaky defensively from what i've seen - not what we need!
