Is Fitz Hall really in talks with Newcastle United?

Words by Kevin Doocey on .

Hall - Was linked last year but whether he’s on the radar now we don’t know

The news today is that Fitz Hall is having talks with Newcastle United FC & if these reports are to be believed, the talks aren’t going too well. A little reading around brought me to this issue and I’m not really sure if there’s any truth in it. Fitz Hall was linked last year and came close to a move if sources are to be believed, however it was wage demands that scuppered any possible switch to St.James’ Park. We do have the profile of giving players bigger wages if they move but the circle has gone full turn now, with us only being able to match a players wages, if we can.

Danny Simpson is meant to have signed a £10,000k a week contract and if true, it’s a very small wage-pack compared to the likes of Shola Ameobi, Joey Barton and so on.

Whether Hall is really in talks I don’t know but I doubt it. The former Wigan man has been mentioned in the same frame as Newcastle many a time before but whether this time he’ll eventually make a permanent move does pose questions.

I’d like another CB at Newcastle and Hall could do a job, especially now as it seems Matthew Kilgallon will make the move to Sunderland and look to try get a few minutes playing time there.

“Newcastle aren’t willing to pay him any more than QPR does, and the club needs all the defensive help it can at the moment.”

If the rumour is true that he won’t join unless he’s paid more money then talks should be broken off this minute. No longer do we sign over-paid ‘have beens’ and Hall is no kid at the age of 29.

We’ll just have to see.

Comments welcome 🙂

Just showed he's a mercenary anyway! All that BS about him wanting to stay at Sheffield Utd to help their promotion challenge...?Rubbish...utter, utter rubbish. We've had too many of these spongers so the Mackems are welcome to him. Obviously held NUFC in high regard didn't he? If he jumps ship to Scumberland just coz we wont pay him enough for his next make-up bag? At least we'll all have a laugh when everyone seems just how shit he is. hahahaaha

Maybe Hughton doesn't have much money to spend? But then again, who does? Noone is making any transfers, even Moneybags Citeh haven't managed anything beyond Viera. It's just the way things are after the financial crisis, capital has become hard to come by.

"One Size" seems to be a good player, but if he only wants extra pay, then sod him off, haven't we realised by now that that sort of person doesn't have the clubs best interest at heart.

Alrite me geordie muckers. Its a sign of the times and how things have changed in NE football. We are currently in a situation were we can attract players over our nearest and dearest simply because we are: A. In the Premier B. A more stable environment for a player (settled board) etc C. More money so can pay higher wages We have spent years signing the likes of Williamson and then kidding ourselves "hes not a bad player that lad" yet not one other Premier club is in for him??? I have heard it all before been there and lived it before. You need rid of that Fat Cockney otherwise Houghton will continue to sign players that will do nothing in the Prem and you again will struggle. We struggle with the likes of Cana, Bent, Jones, Cattermole, Reid etc so you can see what the gap is like. Not a dig by the way its a just a fact the way things are at the moment. I am well aware things change so there will again be a power swing I am sure of that. Just hope its not for a good while yet!!! ;-)

SAFC Lad : It's true to say that the powers are swung but I certainly hope it's not for long :D If you ask me, Kilgallon isn't a signing ye should be making. We'll see how good he is but I'm not entirely sure he'll cut it at the Stadium of Light. Only time will tell, needless to say with the right management ie Steve Bruce, he could come a solid back.

I would have went for Solano and Robert I know they are 34 and 35 but surely they could do a job in the championship for half a season at least. Both have good footballing brains and an eye for a pass I think they would be good business for free transfer and if Robert was offering us what he offered to do for PSG then I think it would be a good move.
