News today that Newcastle United may be after Hull City defender or wing-back Bernard Mendy.
Bernard Mendy – Hull City defender interesting Newcastle?
Mendy is the latest player to be released by Hull City as they try to reduce their wage bill following their relegation from the Premiership.
But since the player turns 29 in August we very much doubt if Chris Hughton will be interested in this player.
Mendy does play on the right side, either as a full back or winger and has some pace, but we are hearing all the time from Hughton that he wants players under 25, who can still improve.
We therefore doubt this story has any truth in it.
Mendy made 56 appearances for Hull, scoring twice, but Hull issued a statement recently saying they had parted company with the player, and it was by mutual consent.
We are 99% certain that Newcastle will not be after Mendy, who played for France 3 times and was at Paris Saint-Jermaine and on loan at Bolton Wanderers, before signing for Hull in 2008.
