      Seems strangely quiet. Really thought we'd have heard something on Sturridge by now....I had really hoped we would have had some business sorted very early in the window. We don't have time to be dragging transactions out until the end of the month.

      Newcastle United FC ‏@NUFCOfficial

      #NUFC have given Demba Ba permission to speak to Chelsea. As a result he won't be included in tonight's squad. More on http://nufc.co.uk

      Newcastle United can confirm that Chelsea Football Club has made an official offer for Demba Ba which has triggered the release clause in the player's contract. The Club has given the player permission to speak to Chelsea FC and therefore he will not be included in the squad for tonight's game against Everton.

      Armero has been doing well for Udinese I think.

      Weren't we rumored to be in for him when Kenny was still in charge?

      I've tried to bring him up before, his stats are outstanding. He's among the top dribblers in Germany right now, and last I checked he has 8 assists, extremely good for a pretty crap team other than him. Frankfurts entire transfer budget is about 7 million pounds.

      Rodgers saying that there is nothing imminent after Sturridge. Don't like the sound of that, hopefully he's just trying not to tip his hand but I was under the impression from some of his earlier statements that we'd get at least 2 players maybe 3.

      I'd rather him say that to be honest after the whole Dempsey fiasco in the summer. This way he doesn't shoot himself or the club in the foot if the deal for a certain player doesn't come off

      Probably right.

      Guess I had my hopes up too high that we might be real busy the first week of the window here. Patience has never been my virtue ;)

      FFS Sounds like Charlie Austin is off to the blues**te!

      Charlie Austin is now 5/4 (from 3/1) to join Everton in January, with contenders for his signature thought to be few and far between. Newcastle are 6/1 while QPR are 8/1 – but the Toffees are clear favourites to sign the Burnley striker.

      Can't be bothered finding the article, but Stevie mentioned how we need more than just Sturridge in this window. You'd assume he has his finger on the pulse, so hopefully there is 1 or 2 more to come this window.

      Liverpool eye ex-Chelsea winger
      Liverpool are being linked with a move for former Chelsea winger Ricardo Quaresma in the Spanish press.

      According to The Echo...
       
      Quaresma, 29, is a free agent having terminated his deal with Turkish club Besiktas last month.
       
      Despite a strong start at Besiktas he fell out of favour at the club and was released in December.
       
      And now his agent Jorge Mendes, who also represents Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho, has offered the tricky winger to Liverpool, as well as to Valencia and Marseille.

      Can't see Balotelli staying at City. Had a bust up with Mancini this morning in training.

      He's certainly a headline maker, personally think this looks worse on Mancini than Balotelli. Players can be a bit hot headed in a challenge even on a training ground, it should never come to the point where the coach and a player need to be restrained and from the pictures it looked like Mancini saw the red mist more than Balotelli.

      There's an awesome player hidden beneath all the antics but I don't think you'll ever be able to suppress the antics enough to let the player flourish, shame because he does have that something extra you look for that is so rare. The problem Balotelli faces is where can he go where they can realistically afford to take that chance on him, unless he took a huge wage cut of course.

      Ugghhh

      LFC Transfer Spec ‏@LFCTS
      Gary Jacob quotes Tony Evans saying after Sturridge next will be Ince and a midfielder, young, not high profile

      Don't have any problem with developing youth but really....we can't buy anyone that's not "young"?

      I don't think it would hurt to have the right kind of high profile signing at this point.

      Feels like Rodgers is myself playing Football Manager, I never buy anyone over 26 years old :D

      Who could be that low profile young midfielder? Hopefully someone capable of having an impact in the 1st team, not simply adding to the reserves/youth side.

      I was thinking that guy from Derby, forgot his name now, 17 year old sensation...

      To me if Ince is our other sure signing, I would like to see a proven performer along with him, not another young up and comer. Because regardless of Ince's good form this season, I still don't think he gets an automatic nod in the starting 11 and I'm skeptical about what he can contribute right away.
