Official: Rodrigo Gary Vilca signs for Newcastle on 4 year deal

This transfer vaguely excites me. Solano has coached him in the Peru youth teams so we should be well informed about what we are getting

It'll be amazing if he's even half as good as Solano.

Good luck to the kid.

Meh, it's incredibly low risk if the fee is under 500k.

I’ve looked up this guys stats on in relation to Solano up to the point they are both 21 as that’s the best yardstick albeit Peruvian football is meant to be more organised and competitive now.

His appearance profile is about a year behind where Solano was at this point, but he’s moving out of Peru one year earlier as Solano only went to Bocas as a 22 year old

I think it's just the knobs way of saying how many times he's featured in football matches.

So he’s skipped the part where he plays for Boca Juniors and plays alongside Maradona to come as a fresh faced skinny kid to learn Bruceball. What could possibly go wrong?

What does Kaka think though? That's how I measure success and failure of a player.

"It'd be interesting to see how we implement him into our rigid 4-4-2 system, especially now that Joelinton is finally proving his doubters wrong after scoring 2 goals against Morecombe and getting a 7/10 from Lee Ryder against Tottenham. Personally, I would rather we signed Rodrigo Vilca's cousin who plays in the division below. Yes, the quality in that division may not be as good but having watched him a few times I think he has the physique to handle the physicality of the Premier League. His cousin scored 3 goals and got 2 assists (3 goals + 2 assists = 5 goals in total) in 16 games which statistically is 0.6x better than than what Vilca achieved in 21 games at Municipal.

However, I am far from writing Vilca off. I personally would loan him out to a team like Hoffenheim where Joelinton experienced a lot of success. If he's worth his salt & does the business in the German league I'd bring him back and be looking to offload Atsu.

The problem ultimately though is that there are too many haters on here and everyone has already written him off. I agree we can all have different opinions but no need to get nasty about it."

This club is a graveyard for developing talent. This kid is up against it.

Would be nice if he was another N’Zogbia or Perez but I’m thinking more Bonvin & Dimas. Will play for the U23s, couple of loans where he rarely plays, then heads back to South America in 2 years.

Think he will at best become a Gouffran/Pancrate, but hopefully he will prove me wrong

If he gets to that level that’d be a helluva find for the price tbh.

The end. Of the debate, and most likely, the poor kid’s development under Bruce.

One of the very few and small positives about Bruce is that he's got an almost respectable record in sourcing obscure South/Central American players..Valencia, Rodagella, Palacios

However, i'm ignorant of how many he brought that never amounted to anything....guess there would have been a fair few. Never heard anything as bad as Milton Nunez on his part though. That was pure Sunderland...only topped by the guy they ended up having to pay for despite never owning or playing for them

Not that i'm clutching at straws or anything

Was Chucho Benitez one of Bruce’s?

Just checked, was Alex McLeish.

Was it not already said Nobby recommended him?

Either way best of luck to him. Hopefully he gets out on loan before we can coach the talent out of him.

Sir Bobby Robson: “What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”
