Beckford hands in transfer request as £2m Toon move edges closer

Words by Kevin Doocey on .

Beckford - Clearly wants a move this January transfer window

I think the next day or two will bring down the curtains on what has been a 2 year old love affair between Newcastle United and Jermaine Beckford. The Keegan, Kinnear, Shearer and now Hughton target has today handed a transfer request to the Elland Road hierarchy underlining his ambitions to leave Leeds United. After scoring the winner at Old Trafford amongst 19 other goals this year, Chris Hughton is clearly in the hunt for the 6’2 striker and I’d expect a move to materialize within the next 48 hours. You needn’t be an expert or have inside sources to figure that one out.

I know there’s  mixed opinions on Beckford but it looks as if, whether we like it or not, he’ll be playing in a Black and White jersey very soon, and maybe as soon as our away trip to Reading.

Beckford, who worked with the RAC fitting windscreens not too long ago will be playing in front of 40,000 + spectators, any footballers dream. We certainly hope he takes his chance and leaves whatever bad attitude he has, back in Leeds.

There’s no doubt the lad can finish, but the Championship is another step up. There’s only one way to see if he’s ready for it.

On a side note, Sky Bet offering odds for Jermaine Beckford’s next club and I think we’re all pretty certain he’ll be arriving at St.James’ if no Premier League teams arrive.

Comments welcome 🙂

Him and Carroll up front for the rest of the season (Y)

TSS: ⏱ 06/01/2010

I aren't sure how tall Becks is but he's definitely not 6'4". I've met him and he was a little taller than me (I'm 6ft) but not by that much. Factual accuracy aside, he plays infront of big enough crowds already, that's got nothing to do with his motives to leave. Like you or me, when offered three times the salary you're currently on, you change job. He isn't the kind of player that goes to a football club through passion, I assure you, but don't doubt you'll continue to romaticise this move regardless. I hope he does well for you. He's provided a lot of goals for Leeds and I hold no hard feelings towards him. TSS.

I see that Villa have very short odds for signing him indeed. Can't see him getting near the team though with Agbonlahor, Carew, Heskey and even Harewood. Then again, who knows. I'd be pretty confident we'd get the lad in the end, if we don't, then it's not the end of the world.

Resigned to Jermaine going now. Just need to make sure that the price is right (£2m+) and that a suitable replacement can be found in time. No one player is bigger than the club. Bigger players have left in the past. Good luck and good bye. MOT

i think this guy is an ok squad player but is he really any better than what we got??? if you watch him for leeds he only bags 1 in 4 or 5 of his chances! and to be honest i dont think he will be any good in premiership, his 1st touch is poor and a decent defender will feed on his weakness! i hope im proved wrong, still think the club is on boggy foundations and want it all to be sorted out!!

The problem Beckford would have in our side is that he would be expected to convert a 1 in 2 ratio as we do not create enough chances. Hence why we are desparate for a creative midfielder.

Ed, I would not be surprised if Beckford did indeed put his request in on the 30th, the last 7 days have allowed for a cooling off period which serves both club and player. If it had been announced last week, I would doubt that he would have played against Manure.

No doubt Beckford can finish, but also definately the most dislikable "street rat" in football. Can score goals, but has never been a "hero" at Leeds ! So, a player with a massive "attitude problem" will only add to the problems Newcastle already have. Shall see Backford in the Championship next year, cos he does not have the intellegence to make it in the Premier League, even if you get there ! Bye bye "scuffer" Beckford.

The only way beckford will go to villa is for a cash dela only no chance of him part exchanged for harewood as hes on 28,000 a week at villa and no way would leeds pay that amount of wages. the best thing id for beckford to come to the toon have a few months in the championship get bedded in with the team and then he will get his shot in the big league when we are promoted at the end of the season and for 2m certainly no gamble anyone remember ian wright started at palace at age of 25 and look how he ended up playing for arsenal if this guy is half as good as him great

Doocey: ⏱ 06/01/2010

Hey Ed, I wouldn't be surprised if the request was indeed put in earlier but only now it's been officially accepted. Either way, he's on the move and if bookies, media and 'sources' are to be, believed then he'll be a Magpie within 48 hours. Things are never that simple when it comes to transfers at Newcastle though!

i think beckford is overated, misses a lot more than he scores and hes really dumb, not premiership material, is it really worth forking out 2 million! how about getting a few quality players in, victor moses, or even billy sharp! Then sell mike ashley to sunderland for an undisclosed fee, then give llambias job as ball boy so we can all donate our hot bovrils to his empty head

MacToon: ⏱ 06/01/2010

Worth a punt I'd say at £2million. Going by Leeds fan's reactions he seems to be a player you either love or hate. Big fish in a small pond to a small fish in a big pond comes to mind and I mean absolutely no disrespect to Leeds, my thinking is that he'd be mixing with "prem" experienced players for 6 months with the potential of promotion to the prem next season, could work out as a good deal for him and his future. Amazing to think he's not been a professional footballer for long either but certainly not the finished article yet. I'm more worried about any potential outgoings but there seems very little action in that direction so far, except for Geremi, so we may be ok.

Doocey: ⏱ 06/01/2010

Well, there's only one way for him to prove he's able to handle the big stage. If spending £2m on him means a few goals and hard work then I suppose he's worth a shot.

kev im a newcastle supporter and agree with you when you say "its the fans that balls the team up with to much expectation all the time" the players who come to newcastle hav to much pressure on there shoulders! but have to disagree on leeds being bigger, both clubs are small clubs with big support. 1st bit money we have forked out in ages so i suppose its better than drawing a blank. like some one said earlier tho is someone on there way out tho, asleys pockets have been sewn shut!!

Dont know Lads I think his attitude and Ego are things that we dont need anymore, we have had to many big Ego's before. I think if lovenkrands got some playing time he would knock a few in. Saying that if we do get him I will support him while wearing the black and white, but we do have good strikers its just we dont have a regular pair, as we seem to start with different ones each match.

Can I ask who started all this talk linking us with Nicky Maynard?there is no way he would sign for any less than £5m!It cost Bristol £2.25m to buy him last season so I there is no way they would sell him for £2-£3m!

Well Harewood is being linked with a move to West Ham today, however hard to believe. I'd like someone skillful up front, not another Andy Carroll, Shola Ameobi or Harewood. Someone like Beckford I suppose but there's plenty others too.

reality check: ⏱ 06/01/2010

Come on lads, to the ones saying that he misses chances...we are relying on SHOLA AMEOBI up front for f*ck sake, over the years how many chances has he spooned when it's been easier to score than miss? I would prefer someone like Ricky Lambert or Nicky Maynard personally but Beckford is better than nowt. We need a striker who plays on the shoulder of their defenders who has pace and guess what Beckford does both. Shola, Carroll and Ranger are all the same, we need another striker like Lovenkrands but better, and maybe Beckford can be. He's got to be worth £2m considering we payed £17m for Michael Owen who only went to Real Madrid for £8m. Get some perspective. Toon Toon

There certainly is better than Beckford out there but as Reality Check and myself have said, we need someone who offers something different. We already have a few 'battering rams' (to be harsh) and we need another Lovenkrands, except younger and more energetic. Maynard is my preferred choice but the likes of Beckford, Chopra aren't the worst one could ask for.

I'm not too keen on him coming here. I think he's overated, he's a League1 striker, no disrespect to Leeds, good club, hope both us and them can be back in the EPL before long. He isn't even the top scorer in League1, is well known to go missing in the big games, bar Man Utd, and sorry but paying £2m-£3m for a League1 striker who is out of contract within 6 month's is just a big no no to me, I don't care if it was Torres, you just don't spend that much on a League1 striker who is out of contract in the summer. I think for that money their are better or similar players out there, who will be less of a gamble in my honest opinion.

not a bad deal for newcastle, as the way i see it its a win-win situation, hes great scores goals in the championship and premiership for 2 million or fails to grab his chance we could still sell him in a year or 2 for 4 or 5 million. and to the bitter leeds fans out there he was always going to choose newcastle over leeds, newcatsle are by far bigger the leeds there is no competition. we havnt won a great deal in our history but thats still more then leeds, we have a bigger stadium, bigger world wide fan base, bigger home crowds, newcatsle as a business make more money then leeds, bigger sponsers than leeds, more expensive players, higher wages then leeds, oo and the biggy we take all your best players, so remind me how leeds are bigger :S

I think Beckford would be well fed off Carroll's flick on's. Leeds are tryng to play him as the CF but he's not that. He would feed off someone like Carroll, or Ameobi. Beckford doesnt hold the ball up as such, but he knocks it back to midfield. He uses his pace to do what Owen used to do, (before he became a penalty area goal scrounger), to play the last man. If Barton ever recovers his Man City form, he would slide horizontals directly from midfield to him.

I think you will find he is on the verge of going to Villa. Ken Bates has being reported as saying he will not be sold for under £3m. That sort of rules out the Ashley outfit. Birmingham and Sporting de Braga are also in the running but probably unwilling to pay that premium. The transfer request was prior to FA cup tie; but agent Rubery spoiled the beans on radio 5 today

I'm for beckford coming. I keep on hearing about his poor 1st touch but I don't see that as fatal. He could have a similar impact on the side to Bellamy in his first season - he only notched up 14 goals for us but his pace and movement transformed the way we played,, when you have pace in the side it stretches the pitch by forcing opp defenders to play a deeper line and the rest of our side will find more room and probably more chances to score themselves. He's become the no.1 football story of the week and for that reason alone it would be good to get him signed up - just for the boost he will give us for the remainder of the season... anywhere but sodding villa please, I still remember those messiah banners on the last day last season,, would love to stick one up that lot.

One things for sure, I hope you have plenty of space next to Harewood, on the, un-used cost a packet strikers bench. People are saying he is lazy, has an attitude problem and misses twice as many as he scores. So all in all is he really that good, I mean if you put Shola Ameobi in a top of the league, League 1 team creating plenty of chances would he not score every game? Does that mean these players have what it takes to play week in, week out in the premier league, i doubt it. By the way, you can have Harewood back as well, he's s###.

I doubt that he will be on his way to Villa, just seems to me that Villa can and wil be able to get better players, not that I am botherd if he does go to Villa, in all honesty I think you will be doing Newcastle a favour. At end of the day though, most of his goals have came against League1 teams or lower, apart from the Man Utd goal. Fair enough he played rather well in that game, but it was one game, what happens when he's playing a game and the TV camera's are off?, it's well known that he doesn't show up in the big games. I don't see MO being the kind of manager to take that sort of a risk on a player when he can attract much better, and he can afford much better. And by the way, who is to say Birmingham won't cough up that much, it's well known they have money to spend, and have only just bid £9m for Babel in the last 24 hours.

God knows why you want him, he has great pace but he's 26 so how long before he loses a yard or two. I seen him in over 100 games for Leeds, he drives me mad. On his good days he presses defenders, gets outwide, holds it up etc but these are so few and far between i've probably only seen it on a handful of occasions and less as he's become a big time charlie. The normal Becks is a lazy and arrogant moaner who, if you're lucky, slams one in the net after missing several chances. It'll be a blow to LUFC but i'm incredibly confident that we'll get a good (if not better) replacement, we might even have a replacement already, Mike Grella who has more class in his little finger.

Bates why mention "European Cup Second Round" various UEFA Cup QF's yet not mention the fact we've been in four European Quarters in the last 12 years, and one semi final as recent ago as five seasons? I don't care who you are, no one who isn't on the wind up can say they are a bigger club than Newcastle, it's beyond pathetic. Leeds United have a history which started about 1965 and ended about 10 years later, that's it that's their history, but I don't think that ultimately defines a clubs size history even though we have 5 more major trophies than them. It's almost unquantifiable, but how can a club who have no history of good support compare themselves with one of the best and most loyally supported clubs on eartH?? Leeds United have NEVER averaged over 40,000 in one season in it's entire history, we have 33 times, and we will this season in the second tier. I know some toon fans who are deluded who think we should be back in the CL in 5 years etc... but how HOW can you compare that mickey mouse club to us??? I fail to see how. Sunderland are a much bigger club than Leeds let alone NUFC, it aint even an argument, and it's not actually possible to put an argument up for Leeds being a bigger club, they're nearer a Watford or Hull than a Newcastle United in my view. Newcastle Championship average gate 44,000 Leeds when they went down 21,000. No one notices Leeds, rugby city, big population, absolutely woeful support. In fact in Britain as far as football is concerned, I think Leeds and Edinburgh, attendances/local population have to be the worst in Britain. Leeds pmsl

What defeat? Shut up ya sheep shaggin cunt, you're a mickey mouse club, you always have been always will be. Newcastle is a proper football city, you come here you don't see people supporting other teams, you go to Leeds not even half the population support or care about the club. Nothing club who half created an identity of being thugs in the 70's just a third division non event in essence though. The day Leeds are a bigger club than us is the day we fall in to the third tier for the first time in our 118 year existence. Sitting there in Division Three congratulating themselves they're a big club, they can't even fill their stadium for play off games heh. Nothing club, must be painful to read but that's exactly what they are, they have no soul, Championship is their level in my view.

Leeds fan here, I'd just like to say I think Beckford's been a great deal for Leeds United, we signed him for £40,000 and he's probably worth 100 times that now, so if he goes I wish him well. I don't know how he'd do in Premiership, but I will say this, worse strikers than him have scored goals in that league. I was born in Hunslet near Leeds, but when I was 19 the family moved to Ryton as my dad was in the RAF and wanted to move nearer to Boomer. Football in Leeds has never been as big in Leeds as it is in Newcastle, but don't criticise the Loiners as you don't really know about NUFC till you live here, but Leeds certainly are a more succesful club in the last 50 years, but I have to concede football is more important in peoples lives in Newcastle you have always had more people willing and able to go to games, and you're more newsworthy nationally, or the papers certainly seem to think so!! So marginally I'd say Newcastle were bigger club.

Dave LUFC, there's no way we're as big as some of our fans think, like when FFS claimed we were the 8th biggest club in Europe because of our turnover, a lot of people lapped that up. However, maybe as a whole we're not as big as we think, SBR used to consider Man Utd and Arsenal were the only bigger clubs, I think that was slightly misguided but we were the second best supported team and third best team when he managed us in 2003, but Liverpool are obviously bigger and Chelsea have become a global club since Abramovic took over. We light years behind them four and may never bridge the gap, however it is insulting being compared to Leeds United in club size. I can't think of one set of criteria that would make you a bigger club than Sunderland no one notices you you're just there.

I gave up reading that after the first scentance. The fact you regard "the intertoto cup" as anything special as well as your texaco cups, makes me laugh - for such a big club that you are. You also wasted that Champions League spot "u nicked from us" as you couldnt even qualify, thats what the small teams do, such as Shelborne and Everton. The only thing you can hold claim to is the fact you won the FA Cup more times. 3 times in the 50s, and you're telling me thats when you won all your trophies. What a small minded club you must be. We dominated the 70s. You dominated NOTHING. You also conviniently missed out the fact we were in the European Cup final and got robbed then by some cheating officials. So dont give me "the only thing you can claim is SEMI FINAL of Champions League". In fact, yes, at least we qualified, unlike your massive club eh! Football got big post war, and you haven't won a top division since. Congrats! Massive achievement! Were there even European Competions back pre war??! Who is your biggest legend I ask?

all i gotta say is read all the info i typed. u said the last 15years so i gave it to ya. and we didnt stop winning cups in the 50's coz we won the old European cup in 1969 ( think it was 1969 might of been 1967 ?). and if u wanna play like that then the only reason why u qualified for champions league was b'coz Peter Ridsdale maxed the clubs bank accounts so in other words u could say u cheated ur way into it lol. if u had only spent the money what was there and not got big loans then u wouldnt of even been there. 1st off all u wouldnt of had Rio Ferdinand, Olivier Dacourt, David Batty, Robbie Fowler, Seth Johnson, Mark Viduka, Dominic Matteo, Robbie Keane and more. there is noway u would of got there with just Jonathan Woodgate, Alan Smith and Lee Bowyer. before Peter Ridsdale came in u was just a mid table finisher unlike newcastle who came 2nd two times and a 3rd. anyways the Intertoto Cup is more than what u won in the last 15years plus we have been higher than u in the leauge and got in Europe more times. Alan Shearer might have not won anythin 4 us but he got us higher than u in them days n took us to 2nd 3rd and 4th and 2 fa cup finals and that what counts. did leeds come higher than 2nd in prem ? did leeds get anywhere near the fa cup final ? hell no. plus at leat we can beat spainish teams in europe like when we beat Barca 3-2. u couldnt even beat Valencia for ef sake plus u had it easy to get to the semi's anyways. lets just face it. newcastle have got a bigger/better history then u n we are doing better than u now. wow so u won 3 cups in the 70's newcastle done the same in the 50's. every dog has his day and newcastle have had more by winning 24 cups to leeds 12. dosent matter when, where or how cups are won ! they are still cups n we have got more than u. even if u start from 1919 ( when leeds utd started )we have still won more cups than u. it says it in the history that newcastle are better leeds so why fight the truth. thats just dumb man. plus we have beatern leeds more times than leeds beatin us. now take ur leeds wannabe big timers ass back to leeds official website n cry like a bitch coz in noway u'll ever be bigger than newcastle.

Alan Shearer might have not won anythin 4 us but he got us higher than u in them days n took us to 2nd 3rd and 4th and 2 fa cup finals and that what counts. did leeds come higher than 2nd in prem ? did leeds get anywhere near the fa cup final ? hell no. plus at leat we can beat spainish teams in europe like when we beat Barca 3-2. u couldnt even beat Valencia for ef sake plus u had it easy to get to the semi's anyways. lets just face it. newcastle have got a bigger/better history then u n we are doing better than u now. wow so u won 3 cups in the 70's newcastle done the same in the 50's. every dog has his day and newcastle have had more by winning 24 cups to leeds 12. dosent matter when, where or how cups are won ! they are still cups n we have got more than u. even if u start from 1919 ( when leeds utd started )we have still won more cups than u. it says it in the history that newcastle are better leeds so why fight the truth. thats just dumb man. plus we have beatern leeds more times than leeds beatin us. now take ur leeds wannabe big timers ass back to leeds official website n cry like a bitch coz in noway u'll ever be bigger than newcastle. FACT

iv just found somthing out lol. Jackie Milburn sould still be newcastles top goal scorer / biggest legend. just be'coz he scored 38 goals in world war 2 then it gets deleted from his tally ( 200 goals ). so really Jackie Milburn should have "238 goals" to his name and still be newcastles top goal scorer. Alan Shearer's only has 206 goals to his name.
