Yet another player that Newcastle are linked to today is French international right sided player Sidney Govou.
Sidney Govou – Lyon right sided midfielder
Sidney Govou was born in July, 1979 in Le Puy-en-Velay and is of Beninese descent. He plays for Lyon in the French League and for his country France.
Govou is a naturally attacking player but rarely plays as a striker, but he can play in multiple positions, including midfield and as an attacking right back or winger.
Govou has played 290 games for Lyon and has scored 53 goals for the French Champions. He has 31 caps for France and seven goals for his country and he turns 29 years-old in July.
Newcastle need some cover for Habib Beye at right back, and since Sidney can play in multiple positions, he could be a good acquisition for the Newcastle squad, and he is certainly experienced.
Itâ€™s also understood that Govou is interesting Portsmouth, who can of course offer European football, following their FA Cup Final victory over Cardiff.
We’ll keep tabs on Govou, but he can probably be added to those on the list at Newcastle, but exactly who are at the top of the list is an unknown right now.
Comments very welcome.
