Newcastle United Target Tomori Loan Move

Newcastle United Target Tomori Loan Move

Newcastle United are reportedly interested in signing Fikayo Tomori on loan from Chelsea in January.

Tomori has struggled for regular playing time at Chelsea this season following the arrival of Brazil captain Fikayo Tomori.

According to the Daily Mail, Newcastle are considering making a loan move for Tomori, however the Magpies expect to face competition from other clubs domestically and from overseas.

It is not yet clear as to whether Tomori would prefer to stay in the Premier League or move abroad for experience in a different league.

The 22-year-old had turned down a deadline day loan switch to West Ham United in the summer transfer window.

The centre-back has played just one Premier League match this campaign – coming on as a substitute in the defeat against Liverpool – while his other two appearances both came in the EFL Cup.

    This guy make a terrible mistake for not playing for Nigeria
    Now even England don’t feature him too much also his football career in Chelsea declining
    I hope other up coming Nigerian footballers playing abroad Will learn from his mistake

    • Footballfanatic 7 months ago

      Age is still on his side as he has not reached his peak yet. Even Dele Alli is just 24 years old…but this should sound as a warning to other Anglo-Nigerians that the british have a large pool of players and can easily use and dump them while a career with the Nigerian national team can last a long time as long as they are consistent with their clubs. I just read that the left full back of rangers fc Calvin Bassey turned down the England U21 because he wants to play for Nigeria I think this is a player Rohr should try to cap asap. He can play as a left footed central back and a left full back and I think with a little more experience he will be better than Jamiu Collins (Honestly I think he is better and more rugged).

      • @Footballfanatic….

        Yea….. The guy want to play for naija…. I think, still on the news; he missed out on our world cup last year with one american born DIKE by name….

        They narrowlly missed out on Paul Aigbogun world cup squad last year…..

        Bassey is a very wise and sharp guy…. See the way he learns from the mistake of others…..

        Had it been we qualify for U23 this would not be any case; just let him play in the Olympic and later fight for SE shirt…..

        I know England would definitely push for him once he move to EPL….

  • Footballfanatic 7 months ago

    The british have no long term plans for these players….they just enjoy scuttling our plans due to the fact that they gave these players the football Education that we never gave our home grown talents…..it’s basically like reaping where we didn’t sow lol……the only catch is that they are Nigerians.

      Don’t worry, some Anglo-Nigerian players who have “cerebrums” , as we use to describe sharp guys in our secondary school days, are beginning to decipher SouthNorthgate’s evil design to scuttle their careers with pseudo-call ups. Kudos to Bassey. 

      People like A&T cannot be pitied. They were warned of Southgate’s dirty antics. 

      • Footballfanatic 7 months ago

        @Kanga what do you think of Saka and Abraham making the world cup squad for England if they do qualify?

        • KangA 7 months ago

          My man, the sad truth is that neither Saka nor Abraham will be allowed to feature for England in the WC. England has a good chance of qualifying, but those two will be thrown away just like the housewife does: flings the sponge into the bin after washing the plates. 

          • Footballfanatic 7 months ago

            Lol I share the same opinion. I think they will give the spots to other players except the aforementioned duo are in the form of their lives leading up to the world cup.

  • International football resuscitate club career, a case of Odion Ighalo, from China to Man United, simply because of his outstanding performance for national team, Mikel obi, from China to Turkey and back to England, Ahmed Musa etc.

    It’s elevate player’s status, a case of Maduka Okoye, from German 4th tier to been no1 at Sparta Rotterdam, Semi Ajayi, now a regular in westbrom, Leon Balogun, Etebo etc.

    International football is a crucial phase of any footballer’s career. Most players uses it to resuscitate their career, while it’s affects many players as well. Tomori and co. Makes a terrible mistake.

    Truly speaking, international games help club careers to a large extent. The reason is that football is largely psychological. A coach may decide to keep benching an individual for another even though their abilities are closely matched. This is where the importance of national teams come in. Playing consistently internationally help prove a point to the coach that the player he is benching is not bad.
    For example, remember Mikel obi in Chelsea under Conte. Mikel wasn’t seeing a single minute at club side, but came to Nigeria and put impressive performances during the world cup qualifications. In two games he scored two goals and provided two assists (I stand to be corrected). It was because of those games that triggered his move to China among others. When he arrived at China he was handed the no10 shirt. This is someone that play as a DM for Chelsea. Why no10? Because of his role for super eagles.
    Another example is iwobi. Before the international friendlies and afcon qualifiers, iwobi was largely playing sub-role at everton. But the international games proved his exceptional quality at instigating attacks and driving the ball against the opponents. His performances against Algeria and tunisia showed his workrate. His performance against Sierra Leone home and away showed his attacking prowess. The next thing we saw was iwobi starting against Fulham and Leeds. The coach just knew he can’t keep iwobi on the bench, even if he can’t displace those in his natural positions.
    And it is because of this reason tomori made a mistake in judgement. Tomori has talent and potential. For me, tomori is as good, if not better, than ekong when he played regularly last season. The very fact that he plys his trade at Chelsea would have given him regular call-up to super eagles. Tomori would surely have been ahead of omeruo and possibly ajayi, if he play regularly. Because lampard doesn’t believe he can’t make the cut ahead of other defenders doesn’t mean he is not good. If he had chosen Nigeria and played at the international games and performed well, there will be a psychological pressure on lampard to play him. Not only that, but tomori chances of securing a club as good as Chelsea on loan will increase tremendously. He may leave EPL but certainly for a good side.
    On another note, whenever you hear a dual nationality player say things like he needs time, he doesn’t want to rush decisions, he has already rejected Nigeria on a low key. What he is hoping for his getting called by Germany or England. That’s why rohr said he wasn’t surprised by Saka choice to play for England. Believe it or not, these players think about their national careers all the time. I mean seriously? – this is their career for heaven’s sake. That’s why talks like “I want to focus on my performance at my team, to keep improving week in week out”, just to avoid being invited to come watch super eagles play, are purely trash. Every player already know at a personal level, what team they want to play for. It didn’t take iwobi, desser and aribo much convincing (if there was at all) to play for Nigeria. Now bassey has also rejected England, who convinced him? Likewise dele alli and barkely to play for England.
    That’s why I’m waiting for folarin balogun response to which national team he wants to represent. Through that you will maybe Nigeria has always been a choice. Not when he’s having poor performances he remembers the advantage of dual citizenship. Lol! But what choice do they have?

  • pompei 7 months ago

    Calvin Bassey is one of the guys Rohr should be moving to cap asap. The guy is a quality left back/wing back. He will give Sanusi a run for his money. Like Sanusi, he loves to bomb forward, and can provide really quality crosses into the box.
    Nothing wrong with having multiple world class left backs!

  • Marvelous 7 months ago

    Playing for Nigeria is not interesting, those boys only play for Nigeria just to have a national team career not because they love the SE that much. If even 15 sure caps was available for them in other countries of high reputation and football discipline, Nigeria SE won’t even appear in their dreams. A country where the NFF refuse to pay players bonus since 2019. Which FA does that in the countries those boys are born and developed? You play for Nigeria you have injury they will abandon you, who does that? Look at victor Osimhem Suffering an injury because of useless football politics, taking a match to a grass plantation instead of a good football pitch. Sometimes we have to be sincere while criticising this boys. If I was in their shoes Nigeria will always be a second choice for international career after the first choice doesn’t show green light. BLAME YOUR NFF.

    I played football but i dont have help to go far. i dont blame our players, i know some of them dont want to give they best becos if they get injury, 9ja will dump them, NFF eat they Bonus and match allawances. We have ex internationals who can run our football well but politicians will not allow them. Amaju pikin, you are not a football, so allow jj okocha or kanu nwankwo to be nff chairman una no gree, so how you want suceed Nff? bribe verywhere, look at under17 and 20 coaches, they are not up to standarded what we need, we have ex international from 1994 set who play in abroad and world cup but no body give them chance. i thought they will apoint finidi Amunike, ugbade and other ex internationals who have played the game to highest levels, no wonder white people call us Monkey

    • Greenturf 7 months ago

      @Daniel,because you are an ex international does not make you a better coach.

      The coaches appointed for our youth sides so far have done well with encouraging results in test games.So lets give them our support and hope we get the tickets for the final playoffs.

  • @kanga you’ve already seen the future that Abraham and saka won’t make England world cup squad abi?,if they both remain consistent in there games they’ll surely be at the world cup,saka has a good chance cos England doesn’t have luxury of LBs sef

  • Ayphillydegreat 7 months ago

    Sanusi, Collins, Calvin Bassey for left back spot. Ebuehi, Ehizibie, Aina for the right back position. Ekong, Ajayi, Omeruo, Balogun, Awaziem, Akpoguma in central defense. That’s 3 players each on every spot in our defense. Even in this circumstances we still have the players to help Nigeria achieve something in this era. Obviously, we’re not winning the WorldCup with this set of administrators, but I believe we can contend at the AFCON. For our foreign born players honestly, play for their adopted countries will always be their first option. However, the ones that chose Nigeria did it with their hearts. Saka and Abraham have a chance to play for England at the WorldCup, but I doubt if they will be that relevant in two years time. England do have a pool of players to chose from. If they’re not consistent between now and then they will never smell the WorldCup squad. Abraham to me is in the same level as Osimhen while Saka is more like Sanusi in my humble opinion. Though I wouldn’t blame anyone who chooses their country of ordinance over Nigeria with the state of our infrastructure and administration.  However, the ones that genuinely chooses Nigeria with their heart like Calvin Bassey are the kind players I want in the SuperEagles. Of course there are lots of challenges playing for Nigeria if you’re born or raised abroad, but the fans gives you so much love and passion.
