Lots of reports today linking players to Newcastle United, and now we hear that Newcastle target Olympique Marseille midfielder Modeste M’bami wants to move in the summer.
Modeste M’bami – looking to leave Marseilles in the summer
Modeste M’bami is a Cameroon International is a midfielder, who joined Marseilles from Paris Saint-Germain in August 2006.
M’bami is a physically strong player with good technical skills and is known as a play-making central midfielder, who likes to come forward when possible.
Both Everton and Newcastle are reported to be interested in M’Bami.
Modeste said yesterday:
“I want to see something else, to have a new challenge and to give back to L’OM what they brought me.â€
“That is why I did not sign a contract extension, but I want to leave now not be a free (agent) after.”
The player has played 49 times for Marseilles and scored one goal and has represented his country, Cameroon, 25 times scoring 3 goals.
He stands 5’8″ tall and no doubt Geremi would be able to appraise Kevin Keegan of what kind of player Mâ€™Bami is.
Kevin has already said he has been impressed with the African quartet we currently have at the club in Beye, Faye, Geremi and Martins, and don’t be surprised if he brings in another African during the summer.
We certainly like our African Geordies at the club.
What do you think?
