Newcastle United venture in for Norwegian as the dust settles throughout Europe

Words by Kevin Doocey on .

Erik Huseklepp linked with Newcastle United again

Vital Football, who’s reliability is questionable for transfer stories have today revealed that Chris Hughton and co. made contact with Norwegian side FC Brann regards their little superstar with the name of Erik Huseklepp. This guy has been linked a fair few times to Newcastle and it’s believed that in the early hours of Monday morning Chris Hughton picked up the telephone and enquired about the tricky forward.

We’re making our transfer plans already which is good to see but if we do indeed making a formal offer for Huseklepp, I’m sure we’ll be surrounded by other clubs looking to take the Norwegian off FC Brann.

We are a Premier League team again thankfully and our home game against Ipswich will see us lift the trophy in front of 50,000 fans +, or we’d like to think that we’d get an attendance somewhere in that region.

Some smart buys, offload a few players and hard work. If we can manage all 3 of those tasks then there’s every chance we’ll ve a Premier League team still, come this time next year.

Comments welcome 🙂

Vegar Eggen Hedenstad thats the defender i was on about he looks a really good buy if we are interested in young talent

Can anyone tell me why we aint got skelbred yet he is a nufc fan and will play his socks off for us so why isnt there any news saying were interested in one of the young talents available to us i would also like haris to play a more involved role next year as i fear he will leave if we dont.. Ive also heard a while back we were looking at a norway young defender meant to be really good why aint heard on that as well.. I think this new policy will back fire as we wait to long and they get snapped up by arsenal and man utd shame as they seem like good buys and i think will do well for our first team..

None of the local papers in Bergen are reporting this today. However it was reported three months ago. Erik is a very talented CF, but I'm afraid he'd be to much of a lightweight in the PL. His style would probably fit more in Seria A or something. Skjelbred on the other hand would be a great investment. Newcastle need new midfielders this season, no?

Tord Magnus Sunde: ⏱ 23/04/2010

Im actually both a Sk Brann and Newcastle fan, im from Sk Branns homwtown Bergen in Norway. I can tell you guys that Erik Huseklepp wants to move abroad, and he has a clause in his contract which says that he can leave the club if a bid in the region of 2-3 million pounds is on the table. I think that he would be a very good signing for us. He has played on the right hand side of the midfield for Brann earlier, both he was played as a striker last season and was probably the best player in the Norwegian League last season. He is a real entertainer, with bags of pace and skills.

hbnufc: ⏱ 23/04/2010

huseklepp is a good shout but chelsea is were he wants to go he has said it himself.. I am all for Vegar Eggen Hedenstad 2-3m and the same for skelbred they both are nufc fans and will play for the shirt not the cash.. I also feel huseklepp is a winger so wont get many games unless wayne doesn't cut it in prem.. Not sure who to buy upfront need goals id say vaughan from everton he has big point to prove or vela for same reason.. also KP Boetang as i really like this player he looks good on the ball and is strong in the mid.. As for cb id have Yobo or Wheater if wants out of the fizzypop.. what do you guys think of this poss players as well as o'hara..

Fair enough Mal. Guys, as you noticed in my very first few words, I was taking this story for Vital Football and I indeed questioned their accuracy. I can't see him arriving and I do doubt we're in for him!

@Doocey Reporting anything Vital football has to say is a real low, fair enough comment on transfer rumours, but at least do it from reliable sources, such as Jermaine Jens in the Ronnie Gill this weekend. If you are questioning their accuracy then you cannot be surprised people question your need to put this up as most people will have read the VF link from NN anyway and had an lol and moved on.
