Wednesday, August 27th, 2014 · 65 Comments

Mehdi Abeid made only his 6th appearance for the Newcastle first team last night at Gillingham,  after being at the club for three years, but the 22 year-old has looked good in pre-season and he benefited greatly from his loan spell at Greek club Panathinaikos last season, where he played 38 times and scored 10 goals.
