Small transfer update, probably shouldn't share but shall, Over International break I spoke with two current Norwegian Internationals who have received offers from Newcastle.

I'm not going to say who but just to clarify to avoid the hype unfortunately Erling Haaland is not one of them.
Kristoffer Ajer & Morten Thorsby be one of them? Patrick Berg? Mohamed Elyounoussi's had a very good season at Celtic.

I'll take any of them.. Sander Berg from Shefield United is a decent box-to-box too. <scratch>
You're on the right path my friend. Sander though I believe has a few of the bigger clubs looking at him.
<ayo>
I'll Hazard a guess

I guess it all depends which league we're in next season...
I'm the scumbag outlaw. You're the pillar of justice. Neither of us like looking at ourselves in the mirror. Do we have a deal?

And who we're owned by, managed by, scouted by, etc. So much uncertainty surrounding the club, and it feels like ages since there was a clear direction.

If that happened, chalk him up as the next Drinkwater or Rodwell. Not with the personal issues associated with either of them, but as a central midfielder not good enough to actually play for either of them. Obviously wouldn't judge him for wanting that challenge, experience or pay of course though.

It was actually a massive surprise when Sander Berge moved to Sheffield Utd many expected him to go to (no disrespect to Sheffield Utd) but a much better club.

He definitely has the ability to play at a higher level, I think injuries and Sheff Utd's back form has really affected him playing wise but I think he's a much better play then Drinkwater and Rodwell (in fact I'd rate him much higher) so that's a bad comparison in my view.

Can’t say I’ve seen much of him, but I would agree that chances are his playing time at City or Chelsea would be limited.

I didn't mean to imply his ability was necessarily comparable to them, but just two other PL central midfielders who moved to City and Chelsea and found their opportunities limited.

This. For Everton / Leicester who are good ''mid-level'' teams fighting for top 6 they stand out. But you always see the case of a superstar at a team like Villa/Everton/Leicester/West Ham/Wolves/Newcastle being bang average at City/Liverpool/Man United/etc.. Sinclair / Rodwell at City, Benteke/Carroll at Liverpool, Fellani / Zaha at Man United, etc.. so many cases. Berger falls into this too.. his chances will be a limited at a top 4/6 team but at a team like ours/Villa/Everton/Wolves he'll be better suited & be a regular starter.
